Server choice in FFXIV for NekomimisFTW!

Nekomimis FTW is a given ^^, but if you hail from another realm (linkshell/free company) or just want to state your server, class, city, jobs or race - this is the place.

We have to choose a server to gather on for FFXIV. This will be our home server and where we create the Free Company for the NekomimisFTW!.

I know that the complete list of servers is not yet available, however many of you are already involved in various phases of the Beta and have friends already in the game. Please list the name of the servers that you have experience of, and give a brief outline of the community you have found there, so that we can all gain a better understanding of the choices available. If you have a specific preference please list it.

As far as possible I want there to be agreement within our group regarding the choice of server. So please talk about preferences, and discuss them.

If there are players you have already met in the game who you think might be assets to our Free Company, and who might be interested in joining, please ask them to join the forum and discussion here.

Hina and I have no specific preference, we have not played any phase of the Beta yet, nor were we part of FFXIV v1.0. So we do not have any pre-defined views on choice of server - except that it be one that our guild will 'fit' in with, not in terms of player numbers, but in terms of mood/atmosphere.

Aside from the obvious RP server, you can't really define a server. It's going to have the same pool of people as any other server. I recommend choosing one of the servers that 1.0 players can transfer to. I have some friends who will be transferring characters. While I want to play with everyone I know, I think the server thing will make that impossible and some friends are devoted to their linkshells and will be choosing a server based on that group, just as we are doing. So I will go with whatever nekos decide. :dance:

Update: the other linkshell I wanted to join chose Hyperion as their final choice. Hyperion gets my vote.

I don't want a server allowed to v1.0 avatars, that's all. I think it's better with everyone starting from zero, without millions in bank already.

I would favor a fresh start concept as well, but I have no strong opinion on this. I don't know what the thought is on the lollie side, I think it'll get determined closer to release. Whatever you guys decide, I can spread the word around to the lollies.

Maybe I can talk a couple more of them into joining here too, so there's more than 3 of us seeing/partaking in these discussions :D

Totally agree with Alkor here. Isn't Hyperion one of those for v1.0?

Yes, but by choosing a non legacy server, I'm basically telling some of my friends that I won't be playing with them :corner:

It seems like most people want a new server, and I'll tag along on whatever is decided.

No, I know many people with version 1.0 avatars will start new ones in ARR. They can have 8 avatars on one server, up to 40 in total, nothing's forbidding them to use that if they want to play on servers reserved to new players.

Same thoughts here I'd like a server where we can all start fresh, kinda takes the fun out if some ppl already OP.

That's why I'm waiting for the complete list of servers before giving a name, SE will give it before phase 4.
