Not to be a Debbi Downer or anything but, seeing what he wrote and seeing the separation of JP and NA/EU just looks like a Civil Rights thing.
The recommendations are based solely on the physical location of the World servers.
A recommendation is a far cry from segregation. Not to mention that it was asked for by a lot of NA, EU, and JP players.
I'm not saying it is. What I am saying is, "seeing the separation" break down like that, "looks" like segregation. But do you honestly think that when staring at a breakdown chart like that you are going to say, "
Honestly tell me two things after looking at this. In fact all of you tell me, and be honest. CHART 1 Looking at this chart, pick your server. What did you pick?
Cerberus Odin CHART 2
Looking at this chart, pick your server. Would you pick the same server if its now a JP if you're in NA? Group JP Group NA/EU
- Cerberus (EU)
- Moogle (EU)
- Odin (EU)
- Shiva (EU)
Maybe its just me but if I had to pick a new server I wouldn't pick one that says Group JP. 1) because the server is for a different region and 2) because I'm sure a lot more JP players are going to pick a JP server which means I will be one of a few NA players in this JP server. Now, I'm pretty sure that logic will also follow the JP. Why go to a server that is likely to have 1) people that are not in your time zone and 2) people that don't understand you?
I don't think my original statement was wrong. Does that, above not make sense or am I thinking about this wrong?
