Fresh start, fresh economy and fresh community.

They're performing a re-denomination, so people will only have 10% of the gil they had at the end of 1.0.

Besides, people who maxed out all of their classes won't easily give up that progress.

I have been following this game pretty hard. When did they say that there will be seperate servers for people who want "fresh starts"?  From what I understand the new servers are just so there are servers based in the USA. The previous version had all Japanese servers which made a lot of server lag and ruined some encounters for US players. (like the Ifrit fight)   I don't see why they would lock existing characters onto Japanese servers...makes no sense

they are reducing gil to 1/10 yes, but the npc prices of items will also be 1/10. so you really dont lose much.  of course people will try to still sell items high, but when no one buys for those prices, they will lower.  i dont think its going to be as terrible as many people make it seem, although many people would like to be on even playing field with everyone else at the start, completely understandable.

im going to whatever server my LS from 1.0 decides to, at least my maxed main, im definately leveling another character though, but still deciding on that one.

They aren't locking existing characters to Japanese servers. They're opening up new servers in each region, designating some as new characters only and others as normal. All vet accounts are then being granted free transfers to any of the 'normal' servers they choose, of which there are some in each region.

There were lots of details released about this a while back, just take a look in the compiled info thread on this forum for links to the source.
