A story about a game that has no story? No thanks. And before anyone says is has a story it a game about random "heroes" randomly teaming up to kill each other for no real reason. The characters on a whole about as unique and interesting as hipsters.
I agree with you @TheSkavenger Only FF does this server lock, other games with the same problem (WoW new expansion popular server) don't lock servers, this might be better for the existing players, favouring them is fine, but they also chose to play on a popular server. This is just another example of a bad solution to a problem.
