This May, Final Fantasy XI will celebrate its sixth year of official service.
At present, Final Fantasy XI boasts a total of 32 Worlds populated by 1.7 million characters and half a million registered users. Along with the release of the Wings of the Goddess expansion, these numbers continue to grow.
The long-awaited World Transfer Service and the ability to select the World in which to create a character have also been well-received and widely used since their implementation last year.
This continued increase in characters and the advent of unrestricted World selection has led to overpopulation in certain Worlds.
When compared with the average numbers of 55,000 characters and between 15,000 and 16,000 users per World, the Odin World in particular stands out with a staggering 70,000 characters and 23,000 registered users as of the end of March.
