System message when I logged on said that server emmigration will be available untill Oct 3.

Not sure if it is to a new server, or just to a different one.

Just FYI.

I'd only ever consider doing this if every single person I've met in the game moved with me... so I don't think I myself will be doing this.

Will the gil farmers go to the new servers for want of less competition?

Will the NM "24/7" campers move to the new servers in the hopes of less competition as well?

If a good chunk of the affore mentioned leave our server, wouldn't staying be the prudent thing to do?

Personally I like the idea of a new server... but the fear that dozens of gil farmers and NM campers will migrate to "greener pastures" from multiple servers gives me great pause.

Hard to know which is the better option.

I don't think it will really make a difference. Some gil farmers might leave....... some might not. In the end I doubt there will be any noticable decrease in over-camping/crowidng.

Gil farmers will most likely NOT leave. Who are they gonna sell the rare items to to get the gil and then sell it to people?

I will be leaving. I'm not sure any of you know who I am nor do you care, which is one of the reasons I am leaving. Other reasons? Well, I've worked my ass off to be the best I can be at my job, which includes trying to have the best equipment for it as well as understanding it well, and it does not seem to have been worth it at all. In the process, I haven't made many real friends nor been invited to many linkshells, which has made getting XP PTs an extremely difficult thing to do. As a result, I have seen a lot acquaintances (many of whom are also Dark Knights) who were before behind me a very significant amount, pass me easily by many levels. Although I know that I should concentrate on myself rather than others, it is just so much more frustration added on to what I am already experiencing.

I'd just like to start over socially, and the strangest thing is, I don't think I've done anything negative. I've been very nice and helpful to my knowledge, and I haven't done anything to incur negative feelings from anybody. But I haven't, like many people I've seen, find people to party with regularly or people who offer to help get Optical Hats with me in the future. I think I'll stop whining there. Maybe it isn't as bad as I describe it, but it's definitely how I feel. More reasons: fresh economy, etc.

If the server isn't what I expect, or things are worse? Well at that point I wouldn't have much problem with quitting.

I've seen you around Epacalypse and I admire the effort you have put into your equipment!

Now, if you are having trouble finding friends I dont think it would become any better on a new server. Not to put you off or anything but thats what I think.

I know alot of people who have problems making contact and friends, while some of them pretend to be friends because they want something out of you.

For whats it worth I offer in trying to be your friend. Only because I feel that I can relate to what you are saying and think that you might be a good guy.

Is anyone other than Epacalypse (who I hope will stay now, since some of us do care if you go) planning on emigrating?

I'm not.

I'm not planning on going anywhere, but Epacolypse, don't go, we need good and dedicated DRK's on Phoenix. The only advice I can give though is to make your own parties. Feel free to send me a /tell if you need to know what to fight and need some DRK skill chains.

Leaving is very tempting to me. The problem is, I'm the owner of the pearlsack for my LS, so if I leave, I would screw them all. If everyone in my LS wanted to go, I'd definitely go.

It would suck to leave so many nice people behind, but there's always a part of me deep in the back of my head that makes me want to quit this game. Much like DRK above said, if I went to a new server and didn't find it enjoyable, that'd make it easier to quit.

For now I'm still obsessively chugging along, deriving most of my enjoyment in the game from my LS. Jungou, a good friend and previous BST partner of mine, is considering leaving. I will be sad to see him go if he does. I have always enjoyed playing with him.

Epac, no :*(

I understand, though. I haven't been playing as much since school started, but I understand completely what you mean. I want to take DRK to 75, but do I have the time to seek for hours despite my trying to be the best that I can be? No. It's really sad. I've been working to save up for my Haubergeon instead of levelling when I am on, and the DRK's who I used to party with over the summer are all 60+ wearing their AF. It does sicken me.

I wish you the best, and thank you for your friendship in the early days of DRKness. You really helped/inspired me alot with the job-some in Phoenix will miss you.

I have all day and it still gets to me. Once you've had a static party it's hard to go back. I have some of the best gear for my level (Hauberk, Sniper's Ring, Thick Set, Mythril Heart, ect...) and still I know of DRK's with far inferrior equip that get have statics and such. Well, to be fair, only one, but nevermind that it's still annoying. Anyway, I don't want to rant.

I'd consider changing servers if it didn't mean leaving my RP LS behind. It's really the only thing keeping me playing the game.

Hey Epac! All I have to say is don't go, you are a very good player and very helpful from my experience. I'm not sure if you remember, but we went through Genkai 1 hell together. After you got yours and stood another, I don't know, like 6 hours to help the rest of us get some, you came back the next day /telling me that we need to go back down to the Necropolis and get the Papyrus for the rest of us. I know far FAR too many players that would say 'screw it' and go find an xp party, but you wanted to help us in any way you could.

And I know this probably doesn't help, but we were once at the same level, and now you are almost 10 levels ahead of me, and already rank 9! I'd like to see the other Darks that passed you by and see what they have done game wise, not just level wise. I know you have kick ass equipment (I check my friends list and see the comments alot ^^), but sometimes people still get picked regardless of comments or equipment. If you want to know how it feels to be not liked though, playing monk up to this point is very equally grueling. I'll be lucky if I can even get a party once a week... hehe

But if you do ever need someone to talk to, give me a /tell, and don't feel bad about not getting too many friends or LS invites, the only reason I got most of mine was because I played whm, and they were hoping I was going to keep going with that ^^;

I've actually thought about leaving too, though one person has been trying to talk me out of it. My reasons are about the same as Epac's. I don't get invited to all the "big" linkshells that people seem to all leave for once they hit a certain level. This has left the shells I am in empty and me with no one to talk to, party with, do missions with, etc. I can't say that I completely dislike playing a solitary character, I mean I meet more people that way than if I always did things with the same people. But this is a community game and I'm really starting to miss the community.

Since I just bought Chains of Promathia, I feel obligated to give the game a few more months to see if my love for it returns before calling it quits.

Hmm..The game isn't about getting into that "big" ls where all high level people hang out.. Atleast not for me.

I'm content and very happy with my current linkshell. We are all round 50-60's and we help eachother out very well.

If anyone needs something we all go for it, it's mad fun to have 10-15 ls people slaughtering stuff to get coffer keys etc.

Torahja & Epac, send me a tell ingame.

Maybe you guys could try our ls out? (have to ask leader first ofcourse =P)

As of right now, I'm signed up for the move. I might cancel it though, I don't know. The reason I want to go is because it's kind of exciting to go to a new server with all new people, but the thing is, it's a huge risk. You could meet a bunch of new friends and a new Linkshell and really enjoy yourself or you could not meet anyone and be stuck by yourself on this new server.

I'm also moving for an escape. Ever since level 12 I've been around the same people, and then it expanded to Divinity. Now, I'm not saying I don't like divinity but every LS I go to now is either former Divinity people or has a ton of Divinity people in them. I just kinda want to get away and start over new (it's not about not liking Divinity or anything) and meet some new people. I only have about 4 close friends on the server, which is what I need to make my decision about. Is it worth leaving those few people for a fresh start?

so far i plan on moving, i am an ls leader and so far i plan on resurecting my ls on the new server, so anybody that would be interested in getting into an ls when they move let me know, the reasons i plan on moving: want to help build a new economy, fresh start, and like so many others i'm starting to get a bit bored and i'm hoping that a new server with new opertunities will freshen things up a bit more, i'm not sure how many ppl know me or how often im seen on phoenix, but as i said if you plan on moving also let me know, i'll save a spot on the ls for ya.

I would never leave Phoenix, this other Forum that I goto that has a FFXI thread in it they were talking about getting everyone in that forum thread to goto Gilgamesh, and I straight up told them no cause I dont want to leave my community cause of all the people I know and all the people that I have yet to meet. Phoenix has and will always my home and I will not leave it.
