And I will tell you the exact date.


August 17th 2010.

Now how do I know this date? I know it because I have terrible luck, I know it because that 2 week period is the only time in 2010 that I will not have control over whether I work or not, I know it because today despite the fact that I was supposed to go last August but it was canceled at the last second I was informed that on 8/15/10 that I and several other people I work with will be sent out into the middle of nowhere for 2 weeks to do fast water and wilderness rescue training for my job.

So while I am out lying in the water playing a drowning victim and surviving on crappy food away from my comfy couch, PS3 and Hi-Def TV you will be enjoying what is sure to be a fantastic game.

Have fun everyone.

Excellent theory. Hopefully someone that really wants to play FFXIV is going out of town mid-June, so we can all look forward to having it released earlier than August 17th.

smoldering bodies at my feet,
I'd love to stick around, but I've got someone to meet.
and I will put my best foot forward.
and I'll thank god I made it out of there
on the day when my new friends come.

There's nothing to be ashamed when we're comfortably back home killing digital animals while you're out there doing something good and saving people's life.

I'm *hoping* it wont be a christmas 2010 release, and that's why I think it will be that lol

Like you I'm not to lucky.

I think the Beta will open around July-ish and will run till winter. If' I'm being optimistic, I think the earliest we'll see it is September.

I'll agree with OP's release date because I also have terrible luck and my area won't be getting DSL until around October.

I also agree with that date. That is the week that fall semester starts. Worse, is that is the last week of Archery Antelope season, so unless I bag something in the very beginning, or at least get drawn for the early hunt, i'll still be out in the field. Though given the choice I'd rather be out there. :P

I don't mean to rub it in, but, I only work 6 months out of a full year, full-time, and can take up to two months vacation just about any time I want as long as my supervisors have enough notice.

I just keep telling myself it won't be out until December so I will expect it to be out then any earlier will just be a bonus for me.

This is something that also plagues me with everything so i must believe ThiefX.
Going off topic, i feel i must just lay this out.

Countless times this phenomenon happens to me from in game to real life to the point where i don't even bother to deny it anymore.

Examples:
Go to every dynamis xarca run in 2 years and only miss 1 because of something came up in RL. On that day the AF2 you wanted drops. Just great.

Waiting an hour since 6am in the morn for the bus only to use about 25 seconds to buy the newspaper that is prolly 10 feet away from the corner store only to see the ******* bus drive away when you come out.

Oh. one great example i just remembered:
The evil rabbit pie curse.
Yes the 15k or 150k a stack friggin food of death.
Every single time i pop one in i amuse myself in trying to see how the heck will i stay alive.
It is insane to believe the horrible luck i have when i use this expensive food.
In campaign, i could pass in front of a horde of mobs and even smack shadowhand and survive but once i use this food it is death no matter where im at.
Resting far away somehow a huge mob finds where i am for the slaughter.
Huge crowd of players and npcs fighting like 8 mobs at once, then a npc dies and the remaining 7 tear me to shreds.

I know many might think this topic is stupid or just nonsense but it is very true and happens.
It's just some very weird bad luck with weird but perfect timing.

I will be very annoyed if it is a Christmas release. That will make me look like the biggest douchebag ever because I can honestly say I would be thinking about myself for Christmas first and foremost >.>

I wouldn't put it past SE to pull some **** move like making the release date New Year's Eve and being all like "Told you it was coming out in 2010! =D"
