Final Fantasy 14 Server Transfers Are Congested Immediately After Returning

Final Fantasy 14 patch 6.08 brought back the Home World Transfer Service alongside the launch of the Oceania Data Center. As predicted, players from Australia and New Zealand that were stuck on NA or EU servers for the last decade are eager to finally experience FFXIV with low latency for the first time ever. Unfortunately, the massive amount of players trying to switch to a new world immediately caused significant congestion.

Is the Home World Transfer Service available again in Final Fantasy 14?

FFXIV Home Server Transfer Congestion

Square Enix reactivated the FFXIV Home World Transfer Service at 1 a.m. EST on January 25. Unfortunately, players immediately slammed it trying to transfer to new servers. In addition to those listening in Oceania, many players have been waiting to move to a new world since before Endwalker released. The service went down on December 4 and was supposed to come back up the same day. However, the massive influx of players that came with the Endwalker expansion caused such issues that the ability to switch servers is just now coming back.

In addition to the heavy congestion, many players are experiencing errors when trying to transfer to the Oceania servers. A post on The Lodestone states that this can be avoided by making sure players access a data center they’re trying to move to at least once. To do this, you just have to open the game, go to “Data Center,” and choose your destination. After that, the transfer should work as desired.

The biggest issue here is that you can’t play with a character if they’re currently being transferred. Since the service is congested, players have to wait for hours for the transfer to go through, which can be frustrating. Fortunately, after this initial burst, things should calm down, and the system should work as normal.

In other news, Blizzard is making a new survival IP, and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection has just one Platinum trophy.
