Hey everyone, I'm Naustix and I want to give FFXIV a real go!

I bought the game at release, but at the time I was just starting university and time just wasn't on my side. As a result I only played for the first month and really all i did was FISHING but I really enjoyed it as a quality collectible mini-game where I haven't enjoyed a solid fishing game in a long time <3

Now I'm back, excited for the expansion- and looking to spend a lot more time into a world that I haven't even explored yet.

So, I know that like, way way back a long time ago in a dusty CrunchyRoll forum post, the community made a loose decision on having "Goblin" be the main server for CR NA. Well, I just started playing the game again- and my character is still on Gobulin-DESU server. However, upon further research (Google: The Lodestone World Survey), that server is pretty low-end on population (we talkin like 4k people still subscribed to it). This isn't really ideal for CR, nor is the original community active on that server anymore.

The PS4 release of FFXIV granted a huge surge of players into the game, being the single best MMORPG available to the console. The streaming community also surged within the game due to the Twitch compatiability. This means that you can find servers with upwards to 12,000 players subscribed to it still (like Lamia server, Tonberry for Oceania).

Now with that said, I'm posting this to ask if any are interested in renewed activity in this game, or if there are any active groups still out there? The new expansion "Heavensward" is coming up within a month, so thats pretty exciting.
I've just been really enjoying this game- the world is wonderful, the environments and lore detailed, a fantastic musical score, and a dedicated fanbase to chat with. I've been streaming it a lot lately at www.twitch.tv/naustix and its just been a swell time~

Cheers~

Just started a membership here, but I've been on FF14:ARR since launch, and currently play on PS4 on sargatanas, tho its a really populated server, and a bit more difficult to join because of that..

@Bugy52, its good to hear that you've still been enjoying your time there I really want to join a largely populated server like Lamia or Sargatanas- which are healthily populated by PS4 players. I just haven't made a decision yet or seen any collective indication from the community for a CR Free Company

@mistalune, Yeah its still sub-based MMO. Not much to say on that, other than the same thing as comparing any other MMO. I've been Guild Wars forever, and will always be a fan of their model. But I've really been enjoying my time in FFXIV, so its just a decision each person has to make

Yea, about the sub, theres multiple options on the subs, which is nice, and the game gets a lot of updates which really, at least to me, makes the sub feel worth it.

Yeah the Gold Saucer is a ton of fun <3 and a great way to further balance an MMOs economy while incorpoating fun side activities... just brilliant :3

I've finally decided on Excalibur (Legacy NA) server, cause I had some friends on there and they rock one of the highest server subscriber populations (around 12k pop, compared to Goblin's 6k pop)

I plan on playing again soon, probably after I get another monitor. I have already been through 4 Swift PG278Q's I finally just gave up on finding a solid one. I have pretty sensitive eye's so finding one that has few flaws is a must.


That aside I saw this



and instantly said loldrg at least it's a great class in XIV
