How Do Data Centers Function?

Diagram of the Data Centers

Physical Data Centers (Physical DC)

The physical DCs (represented in blue on the diagram) are located in four regions: Japan, North America, Europe, and Oceania. The closer your place of residence is to the physical DC, the less likely you are to experience network lag; as such, players typically choose the physical DC located closest to their residence.

Logical Data Centers (Logical DC)

Each physical DC contains one to four logical DCs (represented in green on the diagram).

The following are some of the main features that can be accessed while you are on the logical DC you belong to:

  • Matchmaking
  • Party recruitment
  • Cross-world Linkshells (CWLS)
  • PvP teams
  • Fellowships

Worlds

Each logical DC contains five to eight Worlds (represented in gray on the diagram).

The following are some of the main features that can be accessed while you are on your Home World.

  • Free Company
  • Linkshells
  • Retainers
  • Housing
