Well, not I. I'm not exactly employed yet...just graduated this spring, and it's slim pickings out there for an architecture major. I've got a job interview coming up, so here's to hoping I'll have been gainfully employed for a bit when FFXIV rolls around.

More on topic: any vacation time that I get is going towards a cruise, methinks. My girlfriend sure wouldn't appreciate it if I spent all my hard-earned time off playing video games, heh.

I've got plenty of vacation time saved up, so I'll probably 2 days off for this.

I'll have class, but I'm a game programmer, which means I get to have my laptop in all my classes. :)

lol Here's hoping my grades don't take a hit.

It probably hardly has to be said to most of the crowd here... but think about taking those two days off the day (or two) after retail release, lol.

In my case, I've got 160 vac hrs and my work hours are cut back to 5 hour days. So 10 out of 160 it sh*t. CA budget + higher ed = epic fail!

My wife would kick my **** if I took off work to play video games. That's not to say it isn't an intriguing concept.

I had completely planned on taking at least a day off to play it. Believe it or not it was my wife's idea. Now I've gotta wait till March. I am not happy about that.

Might, but I'l take the vacation days the second week. What if there is an unforseen glitch and survers have to down for hours the first few days? Happens in most MMOs I'v tryed on release.

I predict a sick day for me where I need to visit the game doctors where I'll pick up my pre-order. I'm also off on Fridays so it'll be perfect.

I actually have that week of the 22nd off already, so the timing couldn't be more perfect. :D (Well I guess it could be if they released on Monday instead of Wednesday haha).

My luck, I'd take a few days vacation and the servers would be shutdown for half of it because of emergency maintenances.

I can pretty safely tell you that this is probably exactly what will happen. MMO launches are synonymous with crashes.

Planning to take 2-3 days off once Collector's Edition early start begins.

Which is exactly why the thought had even crossed my mind about actually take time off from work for it. It can wait until I get home from work. Perfect thing to help unwind from the day, unless of course the servers are down.
