    Data Centers/World Locations Info from the LIVE Letter

    Greetings,

    I know there has been some confusion about multiple data centers and world discussion that took place in the 25th Anniversary event, so Yoshida addressed it directly in the Letter from the Producer LIVE part III.

    Quote Originally Posted by Naoki_Yoshida

    What's going to happen is a player will be shown a complete list of worlds. Within the list, players will see which worlds are tied to which data centers (i.e. this world and this world is tied to the data center in Japan, this world and this world is tied to the data center in North America or Europe). Players will have the freedom of selecting any world they prefer.

    This means that they can select a world that’s in the data center in their own region or they can select a world that's based off of one in another region. For example, I would choose a world based in Japan because the data centers are physically closer to me. On the other hand, a North American or European player may choose a world based off of their data center centers to keep the lag to a minimum.

    So let me make it clear that we're not separating the worlds by language. For those who want to play with players outside of their region, they will have the choice of selecting a world that's located in another region. Also, through the content finder, you will be able to select a language preference so for those who only wish to play with players that speak the same language, all they have to do is set the language preference to the language of their liking.
    Hopefully this will clear up any questions you may have.

    It's not INTENDED but it WILL separate the community by language and region.

    community vs. lag death
    that's what it boils down too plain and simple.

    It sounds harsh but that will be the outcome.

    It also means alot of us will have to reshuffle worlds. Being that I don't want to play on a laggy server, and my current one might have a data center in Japan.

    Not what I was hoping for really..... Wheres the dislike button when you need it.

    It's obvious what peoples choices will be. If you live in Japan, you will chose a Japanese server, If you live in NA, you will chose an NA server, and thus be SEPARATED.

    Yeh. Chances are, people will choose their closest region.
    Makes me a sad panda

    This will effectively segregate communities and force players to give up on friends and players they have been socially interacting with for 2 years now.

    I can't even begin to describe how massively disappointed I am by this decision as it will affect me terribly because I have some fantastic groups of friends across all regions.

    This makes me very, very sad.
