Fenrir untouched, which means we must be quite populated already! I see well over 2600-3200 players during JP prime time so...

This is bad news for FFXI. Beginning of the end when mergers start.

I don't see it as nearing the end, servers are going to be less populated because the game's starting to get older and people will be moving on to FFXIV, but look at UO and EQ, those games are still going even though far fewer people play them than when they first started. I would rather see server mergers than having a really low population on a whole bunch of servers.

Course, none of this will effect us on Fenrir, but posting it anyway!

- Announcing the World Merge
We will be performing a World Merge to resolve this issue so players may enjoy all the content the game has to offer.
Please refer to the "Guidance on the World Merge" for more details.
[Guidance on the World Merge]
World Merge will be performed during the upcoming version update. Once the version update is complete, characters from the "Source Worlds" will be migrated automatically to the "Destination Worlds".
* The schedule for the version update will be released at a later date.
- Details on the World Merge
The following is a list of worlds designated for the World Merge.
Source World Destination World
Fairy -> Sylph
Kujata -> Valefor
Remora -> Leviathan
Midgardsormr -> Quetzarcoatl
Hades -> Cerberus
Seraph -> Bismarck
Garuda -> Lakshmi
Pandemonium -> Asura
* Other worlds will not be affected.
- Things to note for the World Merge
Other than the data listed below, all character data will be transferred to the new world. This includes character status, belongings, gil and key items.
In cases where a character with the same name already exists on the "Destination World," you may be required to change the name of your character. If this is necessary, your character name on the character selection screen before login will be displayed in yellow. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the change.
Changing the character name will not affect data such as your Friends List.
Items stored in the Delivery Box or Auction House:
Items and gil stored in the Delivery Box or Auction House will be deleted automatically when the World Merge takes place. Please move them to your character's belongings or Mog Safe before the World Merge.
Please note that items and gil lost in the merge cannot be restored through the Item Restoration service.
Linkshell, Pearlsack and Linkpearl:
Pearlsacks and Linkpearls cannot be carried over to the "Destination World," and will disappear during the World Merge. Linkshell owners will receive an unopened Linkshell when they log into the "Destination World" for the first time. Unopened Linkshells will not be affected by the merge.
Please note that you will need to create a new Linkshell Community after creating a new linkshell on the "Destination World."
- Suspension of the World Transfer Service
The World Transfer service will be suspended from Mar. 9, 2010 7:00 PST until the World Merge is complete.
- Suspension of the Character Reactivation Service
The Character Reactivation Service will be suspended from Mar. 9, 2010 7:00 PST until the World Merge is complete.
- Regarding the worlds Odin and Bahamut
After the World Merge is complete, the following services will be reinstated:
Character transfers to Odin/Bahamut.
Creating a new character on Odin/Bahamut.
Issuing a Gold World Pass on Odin/Bahamut.
