It's been said several times throughout the General forums, But I feel there also needs to be mention of it on our Server Forum.

Statement by the RPC of FFXIV

The Final Fantasy XIV Role-Play Coalition is excited to finally announce the unofficial RP server! After a vote in which over 15 role-play linkshells and numerous freelancers took part in, Besaid has been named the unofficial RP server.

This is a courtesy announcement for those who may be interested in RP as well as for those who want to outright avoid it.

The unofficial RP server will house over 500 role-players but we certainly hope to have wonderful interactions with those of you less interested in RP as well.

As the only special interest server, Besaid will differ in certain ways compared to your standard server. Large-scale events will be held from time to time (and we hope non-RPers find a way to enjoy them as much as we do!). The role-players will also strive to create a living environment full of varying degrees of immersion. While still a minority, we will be a larger minority on the chosen server. Thus, new RP linkshells are strongly encouraged to join this server even if they do not wish to be a member of the Role-Play Coalition itself. We all know that having like-minded individuals enjoying role-play alongside you on a day to day basis helps keep the community, and by extension, your linkshell, strong.

The RPC strongly advocates having a positive relationship with the non-RPers that happen share the same server as us. We will be as respectful as possible to the non-RPers and we ask to receive the same treatment in return. We look forward to the many friendships and interactions we will have with the non-RP community of our chosen server and hope you feel the same as well.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Hope to see you in Eorzea very soon!

Warm regards,

Role-Play Coalition

Good to know! But picking the first alphabetic server seems like an odd choice. You know how many people will just pick the first server, or at least I think there might be some truth in it. This server seems to be getting way overcrowded, I think it will be a very poor choice looking a bit ahead. AAaaaanyway glad to have a rp server, even though its unofficial, I'll be playing on Besaid probably, but I fear the worst.

The servers aren't listed alphabetically (or at least not all throughout beta). I believe they're listed based on population, with lowest at the top and highest at the bottom. So there's not much worry about people choosing Besaid based on its alphabetical listing. That is, as long as the listing method remains unchanged in retail.

Besaid wasn't picked as the unofficial RP server because of alphabetical order. The RPC voted on it.

The servers were voted on purely, with the overflow being decided as Lindblum. The overflow decision ought to have dispelled that little conspiracy theory. :P
