This is a great thread. So many enthusiastic PS3 players ready to jump into the world of Eorzea!! Unfortunately, I am at 100 friends at the moment, and don't have anyone worthy of deletion. But, I am apart of a free company that is full of first time PS3 players, and we intend on joining one of the new fresh servers.
That being said, I know how important it is to be on a server with a great community and population, and also read that we definitely should all pick a nice server to join otherwise we won't see each other. So I'll be checking back, and once you guys have decided which server you want to go to (I guess we might be able to make this decision during beta) I'll tell my Free Company leader, so that we will add another 25 or so players to that said server.
This way we can come a little closer to making sure that our server of choice wont have problems with population, and will seem a little more crowded when we run through the city states on opening day!! Peace
P.S. I also was a player who left before the 99 cap. I played 7 years strong before that, and still mad at myself for not finishing up the WoTG missions. I got close, but here's to a memorable new beginning!!
