Excalibur vs. UltrosFollow

Hey all

I'm not a frequenter of this website, but it did help me during early access and all that jazz. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on whether or not to go from Excalibur to Ultros (Where ZAM is located). So far the only pro I can think of is that I won't see anyone with 3million gil and 50s in every single job. I've always wanted to play with a very awesome and consistent community like the one I feel is ZAM.

Thanks for your time!

You would have to start new, you can't transfer off a legacy server (yet).

and what's wrong with Excalibur!? :p

Excalibur ist krieg.

Every server is going to reach that stage eventually so it doesn't really matter, but if playing with the ZAM community is important to you.. transfer to Ultros.

----crazy rant on----Don't you like my occasional shouts in popular zones for my pony linkshell? Aren't I endearing enough for you? Why are you leaving me?! We had something nice!

fine, go. ----crazy rant off----

Ultros and Excalibur are both very high population servers, so if crowded areas, and FATEs zerged by 50 people are your thing, then you won't miss out by leaving Excalibur. I guess you just have to go where you think you'll be happiest.

Better than the hairy, tentacle-wrapped anime girl of a server that is Ultros...

Ultros is ok. Gil sellers, titan sellers, bc turn 5 runners, elitists, cool people... pretty much just like every other server except more lag due to the # of ppl.

I'm actually playing on Sagatarnus now (need to change my sig), reunited with old friends from XI.

That said, Sagatarnus is allegedly less crowded than Ultros, and I don't really notice much of a difference. I think all servers will feel about the same.

I moved to Mateus to be with my noobish people and I can tell you it is miles apart from Ultros in population. You can actually breath in the towns and FATE zergs are like 10-15 people rather than 50. I can actually get a few hits in on the mob now before it is over.

Sagatarnus FOR THE WIN

Clearly that is where I am as well.
