i am wondering about if i start recruiting on cactuar for the level 5 FC (read guild to you not in ffxiv) that i am the head of, known as Low Red Moon, if its ok if i say we are a gsch based guild.

 

i don't want to add confusion to the plate here, and since others are playing on balmung and excalibur(far easier of the two)... both of which are very high population servers... which for the most part means to get on them you have to spend 20$ ({edit} this is a world to world xfer, all characters are moved, with other restrictions, see link below.) because your leveraging that they are allowing people to to transfer there if they pay... but not if they are starting a new character there... or a very very patient about trying to create a character there under the optimal situation. ie: the server comes up from maintenance around 15 mins to 4am. this makes the allow creation algorithm to be fooled (4am is one of the times it sees what the online population is) and thinks that server is not high population due to it coming up from maintance. 

to me gsch social adventures is about the casual side of gsch (sort of redundant imo)... and to say to someone to play with gsch on ffxiv you need to pay 20$s seems to fly in the face of that.

note: this is what ffxiv means by a cactuar http://ffxiv.gamerescape.com/w/images/c/c8/UncommonCactuar.jpg

Transfers have always been account wide. Has it changed?

a note in addition to this topic would be: that if you think you would want more then one character on the destination server. that you probably want to create all 8 before xfering the world.  making sure that they at least have names that your happy with. as i recall look and races can be changed once for free... unless you have already done that on the source server. collision names would have to be corrected. (which for at least 2 of them i would be pretty much be sure i had to do that.)

on re-reading the ffxiv url please note the following:

* Characters cannot be transferred to a World which has already reached the limit for character creation.

it appears they have changed the loophole that was there before.

Your link for the world transfer service is *extremely* outdated (be very wary of anything dated at relaunch in 2013, as many systems have changed in the 3 years since then) - although the world transfer graphic at the top is still relevant, the conditions below that have changed (such as the part about locks on legacy vs non-legacy worlds).

The current version of FFXIV's World Transfer Service conditions can be found here:

http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/playguide/option_service/world_transfer_service/  

As for the loophole closure in not being able to transfer to a world that has reached the limit for character creation... you still can. It hasn't changed. Had a couple of friends do just that a couple of days ago for Balmung. And since that particular workaround is so financially lucrative for SE, I'd be surprised if it does change...

https://www.google.com/#q=ffxiv+character+transfer

 

blame google... :-) i used the first one... yours is the 2nd. but, yes yours looks more current :-) and yes, i agree that if this is gaining them cash then it would take a the community complaining about too many people probably to get them to stop it. SE is for the most part interested in your money.

still none of this answered what i asked.

I think Fog would be the best one to answer your question. I have a GSCH FC on Balmung because Fog asked me to hold the name on the server I was active on. That said I don't recruit to it. By FFXIV's nature I don't think we can specifically name a server as home for a GSCH social adventure since we're so spread out atm. That's why it's still blank.

On that note there's nothing stopping you from finding people and recruiting them to your own FC, have them register on the GSCH site, join the Social Adventure linkshell and claim events. Not sure though if you can say you are GSCH based... that would be something @Foghladha needs to clarify.

If you meet yourself on the testing track, don't make eye contact. Lab boys tell me that'll wipe out time. Entirely.

Oh my bad..... how I missed that (it's in your first sentence) I will never know :\

Ya for sure use your guild. Members will just have to sign up on the site and on the social adventure page for you to claim events. Good luck! :D
