Free Company Week One – almost – and Discord role changes!

The Across Free Company had an amazing week one! Created on the 10th of March 2020, and rankings posted on the 16th we’ve already achieved rank 17 in Free Company points earned overall for the Excalibur Server! Across has already leveled up to 13 and is due to hit level 14 by tomorrow! Thanks to our enthusiast members we hit rank 6 not even within 14 hours of the FC existing. Shortly after (this is all still Wednesday morning mind you, the FC was made late Tuesday night) our eagle eyed members immediately found a small house plot open for purchase! Thanks to our members dedication and especially Monk for putting in 7 hours of clicking, we got the house! As of Sunday, we have used that plot to move to my former personal plot and upgraded to a medium house in Shirogane (Ward 10, plot 31)!

Out next step is to focus on airships/submarines and FC crafting to get caught up to current content and to be ready for future content! We will also start working on increasing efforts to our recruiting drive. I look forward to our future successes!

In other news Discord changes have been implemented on our server! In an effort to stream line the Across discord experience we have removed existing roles and now have 3 main roles which can be selected at the new welcome screen. The first of these 3 roles is FFXIV pug, for people who are just visiting briefly and will just see what they need to see in the FFXIV Free Company channels. The 2nd role is Across Legacy which will show all the same chat and voice channels that’s always been there. The 3rd role is Join FFXIV Free Company chat. This option will will show dedicated FFXIV text chat, and guides, along with voice chats for dungeon and raids. We apologize for the inconvenience, but hope that this will improve your overall discord experience.

Across 2020 A Sight For Sore Eyes

Okay folks! We’re at it again after a long whatever it was that we were doing! What is it that we’re at again? We’re building up another Free Company in Final Fantasy XIV. After we switched from the Diabolos to Excalibur server years ago we just kinda joined other established Free Companies, bounced around and kept to our ACRX linkshell. But enough is enough. We’re all bounced out. We’re just gonna make our own Free Company, with buffs, and a nice FC house, with submarines and air ships that actually do things!

I invite you to return to Final Fantasy XIV. To return to Excalibur. To return to your own Free Company. To return to

Good Night Sweet Prince (TeamSpeak)

Since the migration to Discord has been so successful I’ve decided to pull the plug on the ‘ol TS server. We’ve had a long history with Teamspeak. Starting with actually finding and paying for a hosting service for all these weird internet people so we could organize in games better. Having members willingly crowd fund to keep it running. (Thank you!) Constantly expanding the service to accommodate all our members and other groups for raids, 100+ people at times! Figuring out how to set up a virtual cloud server and configuring Teamspeak to be hosted off it. (So much cheaper!) And finally the wildest part was actually submitting a request for a limited Non-Profit License from Teamspeak, configuring the site to meet their standards (Across store we hardly knew ye) and actually getting approval! (Free 512 person slot server license!)

You’ve served us well for the past 8 years TeamSpeak! Thanks for the memories!
