Sure it's worth it, and while you're at it come to a quiet server like Cerberus as we certainly need more players. Don't just join the biggest server .. it's too bandwagon.

Everyone's mileage will vary, but population numbers vary wildly from one server to the next, so keep that in mind when making your decision. Some do indeed look like ghost towns in comparison to the top 2 or 3 servers.

I see way too much advertisement for the big servers .. but don't be fooled, there are players on Cerberus during EU/NA time and we want to get things done. The cool thing is we don't get much congestion for Ambuscade or the recent Domain campaign.

I'd suggest Asura or another high populated server.

FFXI gets more 'thinking of returning' threads than some other MMOs I have played have players.

If you don't have friends and care about end game content, you wont be very productive and get frustrated, especially on low pop servers. You'll have to make your own parties via shout or join those and that's an iffy proposition.

If you can find a good ls who has the same goals, then you should be golden. If you're multiboxing 3 or more characters and are good at it then you can do a ton more stuff.

You can get a lot of mileage out of older content from a couple years past using trusts solo, but you're not going to get into the newest/hardest content very efficiently.

I come back and play for a few months at a time a handful of times a year but things die down and I get bored/frustrated, when ls folks start playing less (it's great fun when we're all on working together though). Once you're at escha level content there is only so much you can solo with trusts and for me it's just not as fun playing a mmo as a single player game.

Your personal nostalgia is connected to the culture that once was in existence on your server, while you were playing.

In short, if your friends aren't looking for you, then there is no point in returning.

Ignore congestion arguments. Play the game as it was meant to be played... with lots of people plus all the annoying trolls in city shouts just like the good old days. People who whine about congestion are trying to justify their decision to stay on dead servers.
