  1. Welcome to the RPC! Occasionally a few Courel roleplayers pop up now and then so it's just a matter of hunting them down. Bets of luck to you!
  2. Unless I'm wrong, which I usually am, I believe they can still roll new characters over there? Maybe just not transfer in? Wouldn't make much sense to me but it said nothing about creating new characters.
  3. It's a new RP scene, and all the growing pains and issues that accompany it. That being said it's a great server with friendly people. Finding RP should not be a problem for you
  4. Balmung is completely shut off to new characters and transfers as of now. Mateus seems to be the go to spot for RPers right now and has gathered quite an impressive amount in the short time it's been. If you plan to roll a new character, I'd advise to do so over there. And welcome back!
  5. Welcome to Mateus! I'm currently on Mateus & Balmung both, and both have their ups and downs, but you choose a great server none the less. Enjoy!
  6. Hey there! Added you on Discord but thought I'd make a post in here as well. I have a character you may be interested in, though the connection wouldn't be the more lawless type you are looking for. Instead, she's a young Highlander, age 20yrs old who quite simply is trying to find her place in where she belongs. She has a heart of gold, but is easily impressionable and manipulated into things less so. She's quick to befriend people of all race/gender and is quick to offer a hand to those in need. If you wish to know more you can browse her wiki listed below or hit me on Discord. https://wiki.ffxiv-roleplayers.com/pages/Savona_Drake
  7. Welcome to the active side of the forums!
  8. I randomly hit a queue of 750 yesterday (probably right after the auto-kick) and that took all of 15 mins to log in. Other then that I can pop in instantly with queuing, backing out and insta-pop on the next queue.
  9. Welcome to the forums! And hey if it makes you feel any better, I've been playing FFXIV for a few years now and I still have no idea what I'm doing!:thumbsup:
  10. If that's really how you want to play, *Real* native RPC users miss our low pop forums before all the *fake* non-natives showed up..... Aside from like, Kylin and a very small handful of other users, all of the "RPC Natives" quit with 1.0. Even a large number of "2.0 Natives" stopped posting here, which is really a shame. The number of registered users might have gone up, but the general activity and participation has dwindled. I suppose some of that has been from "greener pastures" assumed to be elsewhere, but the rude reactionary posts are likely contributors as well. Mmm, I'm not normally known as a rude user (I don't think) but this "Wah wah wah server growing, wah wah wah I'm a mateus native so I'm special" post was just ridiculous. But to further expand my point in case someone has missed it: Following his own logic, his presence on the RPC should be un-welcome. Hell, I've been here for how long now and technically I should still be frowned upon for entering the RPC as a non-native. His bellyaching over Mateus growing is the same as the first 200 RPC users complaining about the forums growing. But instead, RPC is fairly welcoming (to a certain extent) to new users. So I see no need for his "this is our server" bullshit.

  12. Easily side skirted by asking her to wear an Easter Bunny costume. BOOM! Roleplay.
  13. Hey welcome to the forums! I recently transferred a character to Mateus who's a soon to be released convict, a Hyur Highlander who goes by the name of Danaxera Nihlany. I've not planned much out ahead for her but I'm almost certain she'll go the route of lawbreaker once more. Perhaps there is a pre-existing friendship there? Or maybe it could be a brand new connection or maybe they've only just heard of each other. I'm really open to just about anything. My active play hours are nightly at around 9pm - 2am EST. Can poke me on Discord if you'd liek to discuss it further Discord ID: SicketySix#9377 (or just message me through the forums here if you are without discord)
  14. Forgive me, I'm a parent. My whole life revolves around kids. lol
  15. Is it all that surprising? They're trying to get people to move to low-pop servers. Once the server isn't low-pop anymore, why continue to give the bonus? Then you're giving people a choice between a low-pop with a bonus and a mid-to-high pop with the exact same bonus. You'd basically be fast-tracking yourself to another Balmung or Gilgamesh if you didn't drop the bonus once the server was out of the low-pop rungs. The bonus is not getting dropped till after it's labelled as congested, and no longer allows transfers/new characters. (if I'm understanding correctly) Meaning that those characters should continue to get their bonus for at least 1 character to hit a level 60 class, no? As it stands right now it's like you walk out into your yard where your 7 kids are playing and tell them the first 4 that comes inside the house each gets 3 cookies instead of one. Then the moment all 4 kids show up inside you say "Oh okay you no longer need these" and strip them of their cookies lol. Should the people who moved in and got that reduced rent suddenly have their rent inflated back up to everyone else's? No, of course not. And so, I would hope that if you had that +XP bonus, it'll last until you get at least one character up to 60. However, new arrivals to an already congested server shouldn't get it. We're actually on the same page then :thumbsup:

  17. Wow so, let's all give you an incentive to switch to this server. Oh caps been reached now? We're going to strip it all away......nice SE.
  18. Yeah, Garleans have a huge thing for racial purity going on. They are very limited in numbers as well. But they see themselves above everything else due to what they are. Always struck me as funny how they cannot cast magic like most of the other races but somehow view themselves as better than everyone else.
  19. It's not congested yet, they've only temporary closed transfers. You can still make new characters. Are you 100% sure about this? I tried to roll a fresh character over simply for it just being a new server and the name was faded out and said creation has been halted? Granted, that was like 3-4 days ago now. During peak hours Omega has often had character creation blocked - just like many other busy servers. Outside peak hours I think it is normally open though. This was between 2:00-3:00am EST. Not sure what hours that would be for EU so it's entirely possible that it was during the servers prime time.

  21. Welcome to the forums! If it's an FC you are looking for, select the "Free Companies" tab from the menu, select Mateus (naturally) and take a peek at what's to offer. Granted, there are more FCs on Mateus the what is currently listed, but it's a good place to start.
  22. Thanks Nebs, that is indeed the one I was looking for. Weird, I thought they were an FC. Either way, thanks for the info!
  23. I almost replied to this earlier with my character as a potential contact at least, but now I'm not sure if this post is referring to IC or OOC....??
  24. Hey there! I just recently rolled a few character on Mateus. It's been a great server so far. I'm doing more leveling then RP over there currently but perhaps I'll bump into you sometime, character name is Shino Mayumi. Oh and good luck with the FC!
  25. Howdy folks! After having her away on an extended hiatus, I've brought back one of my old mains and am currently looking for RP contacts to through her little cinnamon self at. ABOUT THE CHARACTER! Attached below is the wiki for her character and a bit of what she is about. A few of you may ever remember seeing her around. https://wiki.ffxiv-roleplayers.com/pages/Savona_Drake Anyways, the main contacts I am looking to make currently would be those under the Maelstrom banner. She's recently returned on a galleon and has made part in Limsa. I would like to find her a captain or commander to serve under as well as fellow soldiers. However all contacts are greatly appreciated. Whether it's someone looking to extort her kindness, wanting to break her heart, befriend her, the list goes on. Romance is also an option but due to her past dating experience she is extremely guarded against falling in love again. Not impossible, but this will more then likely be a long haul to win her over. I'm open for any and all types of RP including Dark/Mature/Adult given that it has a place and purpose in the story or it's fitting to the characters themselves. If you want to know more feel free to either message me on the forums here, or give me a poke on Discord at SicketySix#9477 (discord is best option) A LITTLE ABOUT THE PLAYER! Single parent father of an energetic 2yr old girl. As such I can be called away at random times due to something she may need. I also work a full time job as a graphics designer and occasionally part time at a local cattle ranch. I'm available for Discord RP, though my replies will be slower with the reasons listed above. However I prefer in-game RP and that's where I will most often be found. Sadly, I'm not accepting "discord only" contacts at this time. ACTIVE PLAY HOURS: 9:00pm - 2:00am EST Hope to here from you soon! Thanks! (Also, does anyone know who, or where, the Maelstrom FC can be located? I looked under the tabs and found nothing)
