What on Earth is it with this server?Follow

Shiva is the 4th server I've played on, the others being Phoenix, Ramuh->Bahamut. I've never seen so many high levels running about /anon and/or with no pearl.

I know the reasons to go /anon, I leveled WHM to 75 back on Phoenix and understand the problem, but seriously, a level 9x WAR is /anon. At times in the cities I see more blue names than white. Not only that, on the other servers it was rare to see anyone without a pearl, who wasn't clearly a new player, but Shiva today is awash with them at all levels.

Why? What is it about the server, or its population, that has created this situation?

It's clearly no big deal, it doesn't affect me in the slightest, but it's so different from the other worlds I've been on I'm kind of curious as to the reasons.

Can't speak for others, but when I'm anon without a pearl (and usually invisible friend status as well) it usually just means I'm playing solo and want to be left alone... although I specifically made my own LS with no one in it just to avoid the "zomg he must be a gil seller" stares. In my case, it could also mean I'm recording videos, but I typically set myself to away when I do that to prevent /tells from interrupting the dialogue.

I know this is a social game, but there are times I really just can't stand other people.

Another thing I've noticed is large numbers of RMT bot armies being created. I saw groups of 3 tarutaru with typical RMT-type names popping into existence in Bastok some days ago, all told I saw 4 separate groups of them over several hours, and more recently similar groups of humes, with names like STNAA, STNVV, etc.

Again, it's literally years since I saw similar multi-box groups being created on other servers.

Shiva is certainly not like the others I've been on.
