Tonberry was actually the server I was thinking of creating a character on. Hadn't even done any research.

I tried Tonberry just now and it was full so I created on Ixion. Quite a lot of people on Gridania considering it should not be the most active time on the server.
I didn't talk to anyone as to check what language people should be talking at least it's smooth playtime.

From the little research I've done it seems Tonberry and Ixion are more populated with english speakers. Tonberry if anything may have a little more as it seems the Australian community is going mostly there.
Also, it should be pretty easy to log in, as the timezone is almost inverted for people in the US. From where I'm from it is exactly a 12 hours difference, so when they go to sleep it basically when I'm up, so the servers should have much less people when we from the west try to get in and it's going to be mostly populated by Japanese when we are asleep.

In the end, we get to play AND we don't stress their servers when they play, so it's not like we're ruining the game for them

I'm seriously considering playing at least for a while on a Japanese server. Not to bash or anything, quite the contrary. Since I have no real life friends playing this game and I play mostly solo I wonder why should I suffer so much when I want to play at night. Even here, which is a community I like a lot we are spread out across every server.

I heard the Ixion server has a decent amount of english speaking people so it shouldn't be hard to find some people to talk to. Hell, I might even take a chance and use my japanese, although I doubt it'll be of much use for the usual MMO terms, at least in the beginning.

If anyone else feels like having a 2nd character on a Japanese server we could try make it as a gather for us RPGFans.

Just picked up a 640 TI at Best Buy today since my GT 320 is dying on me. Here's hoping A) it fits, and B) it doesn't cause my computer to spaz out. Any advice? I usually buy all my computers pre-built and this is my very first time upgrading.

Besides all the good recommendations given, I have one because my cousin decided to buy a 660 and gave me his older 560Ti. I didn't have a single issue but he did. His computer became unstable some games exit for no apparent reason and pretty much everything was brand new. So the short answer was his "Surge protector". (Forgive me if the name isn't that one because I'm not sure how it's called in english, in the end I'll link a picture so you'll know what I mean). Long story short, he switched a regular one to a much better one and everything became normal, just like that, so Tenchi-no-Ryu, make sure your power supply of energy to the computer both "from the outlet"and "from inside the computer" is of good quality.


About the servers:

Leviathan - Tiffany Hwang
Leviathan - Cyril Elyon

Send me a tell if anyone's on there, running a LS with a few friends of mine.  Will be maining WHM, maybe SCH, and considering BLM and SMN.

It seems we can meet there! I was thinking of running a WTH Mage myself, but decided to try a pugilist in beta and ended up liking my Mi'qote so I'll be keeping her. Since I now plan on trying the class a little bit further we probably can play together until I go White Mage.

If I were you guys I wound't wait for the e-mail because it doesn't look like it's coming anytime soon.
On their twitter SE said we should just keep trying but they didn't say anything about sending an e-mail.
66  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 21, 2013, 01:26:35 PM
Hey guys, I managed to get everything worked finally. Someone on GameFaqs posted saying he was having the same problem and well, it worked for me.
Basically, I had received an e-mail with a europeean code, the one that starts with RAAE, and to register I needed the one with RAAU.

In short, all we need to do is go to preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com and keep trying with our 18 digit code and eventually it should work. Instead of an e-mail, you should be transferred to another page telling your code and the link to register. That's it.
After I read the instructions of the gamefaqs guy, it didn't take me more than 5 minutes until it worked.

So, if someone was still unsure if they should/can type in their code, it is working now. Hope this helps anyone here.

I managed to receive my code. I always got an error on the redeem site but suddenly the e-mail has been sent to me with a code. Although not everything is perfect as they say I got a code for a different region...
68  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 20, 2013, 11:42:29 PM
By seeing SE's FFXIV twitter it seems we should now be able to redeem our codes. However it is still slow as hell, and still giving errors.
At least they said they are adding bandwidth to it.

If anyone needs the url: http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com/   I don't know for sure, but from what I've gathered it is different for EU players.
I still haven't been able to register my code properly but I'll keep trying.

If anyone here manages to do it, maybe we should share the experience.
69  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 20, 2013, 01:15:06 PM
I found this info regarding the pre-order codes.

In short, a person contacted SE about the site not properly working and all, and they gave him an answer telling we should wait for the e-mail, even though the site is up.
Also, they said even if we tried to redeem the code and receive an error, or some that tried to redeem PS3 and got it registered as PC to stay calm that it will be fixed as soon as we receive the e-mail.

Let's just hope it truly works.

Yes, it does.
I bought it myself this weekend as well. I think I might've spent a little too much on games since the steam sales, but this game may help me save some money until the end of the year promotions start.

I saw a bit about it this morning. If it is indeed a mix of Limbo and FF I'm up for it.
It is weird (for me) to see Ubisoft developing something like, I gotta say I appreciate them trying something this different from what they usually make.
72  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 18, 2013, 01:04:56 PM
Sure I can but I wanted to play as another race... Maybe I'll get used to this character and before I realize I'll end up playing as her.
73  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 18, 2013, 12:27:44 PM
Hey everyone. copying and pasting a twitter from SE:

FINAL FANTASY XIV
Due to the large number of concurrent players on the NA/EU datacenter, we'll be adding three new Worlds  (1/3)

We'll be adding Lamia, Phoenix and Siren. Among them, Phoenix is a world recommended for EU region.  (2/3)

FINAL FANTASY XIV
To guide players to those two new Worlds, we'll be suspending character creation on the other NA/EU data center Worlds. (3/3)

Wasn't sure how this would affect everyone so I thought I'd post it. Hopefully the restriction will be gone by early access/launch



I found about it the hard way.
Trying to make a long story short, in phase 3 I played on Ultros but I wanted to try a different class before committing so I chose a different server, class and race: I went with a Miquo'te pugilist on Leviathan, while playing the beta with a PS3 code.
Then I decided to buy the game and since I already bought why not start already my main which I plan to be a Conjurer? Well, I tried my server of choice, Ultros and gues what? I couldn't create a new character on it.
In the end I kind of gave up and I'll wait until release to make my main there but so far at least I'm having a blast with my pugilist.

I hope this restriction is lifted in the early access phase.

Incredible that in the same week I was wondering if we would get a newer version they announced it!
Of the characters yet to be announced, one I truly hope makes into the game is Metis. It seems everybody forgot about her. Since she's a robot, it should be pretty easy to put her in as far as story goes.
75  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 16, 2013, 08:02:32 PM
I played phase 3 on Ultros so I'm kind of thinking about playing there but I'd like to know where most of us from RPGFan are.
It seems most of us are spreading among Ultros, Leviathan, Cactuar and Hyperion.
