I was surprised by how many people, including myself, chose the stand alone character creator as the one thing they wanted from SE before release. Is there anyway to present this information and perhaps get a response from them on this? With how open they've been to the desires of the player base this time around, perhaps they'd really consider making something like this available for download from their website. Maybe it's a long-shot. What do you guys think?

1) Where's this poll?

2) I would kill to be able to take the time to customize my character before day one so that when I install the game, I can int the ground running, rather than feel like I have to rush.

Yeah I'd love that, I have some ideas set already for race, clan, city & deity but it would be sweet if I could pick out the aesthetic crap now and have it ready for release day.

There's rarely anything on the front page that I want to see, so I link directly to the forums. I suspect a lot of people do the same.

Yer, same here. My bookmark is for the forum. If the front page got updated more often, I would bookmark that instead (which isn't likely until they start releasing more information more often).

You got it! I'll see if I can rally a bunch more as well, but it probably wouldn't do much good...seeing as how everyone there can already use the char creator. xD

Well, they could just make some kind of makeshift program (or even just code it into their site) that only displays still images of all the options. :\ I'm sure alot of people would be happy and it wouldn't be that hard.

I also go straight to game=268, skipping the main page entirely.

And I know I'm repeating myself, but yeah.. character creator. Want.

A character creator would take the edge off the wait for about 2 days... then you just keep seeing that "Confirm" button at the end that's all greyed out and it matches that greyed out area of your soul where the real character creator should exist.

But I SO WANT IT!!! Give character creator now!

There's a front page other than "FFXIV General Discussion Forum"? O.o
Even in FFXI, I linked to the general forum page.

All kidding aside, I would love a character creator tool. To me, that's one of the most important decisions I'll make in any MMO life. I regretted my choices in FFXI, but felt I was too invested to go back and start over. Can't count how many characters I used to make in City of Villans/Heroes just so I could fool around with how I could look.

Aion and other games before it have enabled you to customize and create your character a day or two before the release, so it's not too out the ordinary to suggest SE could do the same here. Although I believe one of the main reasons they do it in other games is so players can claim the names they want, and because FFXIV has a duel name system it shouldn't be an issue with most players. It would be without a doubt awesome though, and an excitement boost on the final sprint before the release of the game.

Even without naming it, I'd love to be able to spend as long as I like working on getting the look of my character "just right" without feeling pressured by the fact that people are already plying and I have to "hurry up".

Lol, yeah i wouldnt want to hurry up either, but i would becasue id want to dive into the game and play. Character creater would be awsome, even if it launched a week or two before launch date. would Really pick up the excitement for most players.
