It's a waste of time because A) I've already done it MULTIPLE times and B) will have to do it AGAIN when I am FINALLY able to make a character with FRIENDS on the SAME NA server.
Do you really need this explained to you?
Oh, I see now. You're blaming squenix for your lack of forethought and pre-planning. Gotcha.
By the way, you and your friends could set up shop on a JP server right now if you really wanted to.
So your solution to SE's failure to properly launch their game is to
A) blame me and my friends (because it is somehow OUR fault we couldn't make characters on the server we planned on playing on)
B) tell me to play a game I pay for on servers with higher pings and a foreign language community.
Gee, I can't decide between blaming myself and lowering my service expectations. Got any other great ideas?
