Hey there,

I've been playing on Goblin (the only reason being that a friend was already on it) during Phase 3.
I think from Phase 4 and onwards, I'll be on one of these servers:

JP Legacy - Masamune
JP New - Tonberry
NA Legacy - Sargatanas
NA New - Behemoth

Reason being is that http://oceania.guildwork.com/ (seems to be the biggest Oceanic community for ARR at the moment?) looks to be most active on those servers (with the two JP servers being the most populated).
A lot of people there have stated that the JP servers give them (us in Aus/NZ) better pings and lower latency, but after doing some ping tests myself, I find that I get better pings to NA servers, so I may hop on either Behemoth or Sargatanas.

The apparent IPs to test with:
NA : 199.91.189.21
JP : 124.150.157.36

Hi:
Yes I heard that the USA servers for ARR likely give us as good if not better pings than the Japan ones. (though I have not tested this myself)  As for the population, I'm thinking of a Legacy server, so this is why I thought Sargatanus would be a good choice..
Hope to see a few from NZ active in the game, whichever server they end up on.

Myself and a friend (CHCH based) will be part of a guild (free company) on the Sargantas server. You're more than welcome to catch up with us ingame. Can't confirm name right now (Crucias {something} )

Just did a 'ping' on US & Japan servers - US seemed slightly faster
NA Server 199.91.189.21  was 228ms
Japan Server 124.150.157.36  was 255ms

So for me, think I'll still stick with the NA (legacy) Sargatanas. 
Though in saying that, it really comes down to what happens on the login day..

Will likely see you in FF sometime CruciasNZ

Hey Chiefie, guess you'll have GW2 on hold for a bit..  yes/no..

Wonder if FF will hold a stronger attraction/addiction than GW2
(not to mention EQ2, DDO, LOtRO and WoW)

For me, FFXIV:ARR definitely is where I want to go.. Eorzea is a much nicer world than GW2 Tyria... And to be honest, I'm kinda lost in Tyria, and nowaday I'm just trying to explore and get all the POIs/Vistas/Skills done... When FFXIV:ARR goes live next weekend, I think GW2 will be parked aside for a good while, I haven't bother returning to WoW.

sandwraith92: Is this game out? will it come to xbox 360?


The game will be out next weekend (early access for pre-orders) otherwise, 27th August.

At this stage, for PC and PS3 with PS4 coming. No Xbox 360 (and Xbox One) due to Xbox-Live requirement that has caused Square-Enix not too keen on.

Well... I got disconnected by server during area change which resulted in error 90000, then error 3102 (already logged in) limbo for over 1.5 hour or so already.

Common error mate, your account is stuck in limbo and it's one of the ones SQENIX are trying to fix
