FilePlanet is giving FF14 beta keys to their subscribers. From Aug 12-16. I think it's $7 to subscribe. :)

Attention FilePlanet subscribers! We have secured a LIMITED number of beta keys for the highly coveted FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta. We will be releasing keys in daily batches starting August 12 - August 16 to allow fair access to all of our users.

To qualify you must be a FilePlanet or Founders' Club subscriber residing in North America.

I wonder what it means when it says LIMITED and then they go on to say we will give them out each day to ensure all of our members get one. Kinda cancels each other out unless I'm reading it wrong. If I'm guarenteed a key I will definitly sign up for only seven dollars.

Edit: It does say to allow fair access to all users, which I guess could mean each member has an equal shot??

I just tried to get a beta key by signing up and it appears they are out of keys for the day. It suggested that I try again tomorrow so I will do so.

I'd believe it. As soon as I saw this post I hurried over and resigned up and got my key. Now I'm waiting for it to finish dling the date/updates.

Any idea what time tomorrow to check back? Don't mind paying $7 bucks, though with my luck that means I'll be winning a key from every contest I entered now :D

Figures, the one moment I actually leave my computer, I miss the email. Soon as I logged in tho, it was too late. And my workweek starts tomorrow, so that blows my chances on the other days too! Starting to think the odds are against me, **** the suspense lol!

You get the beta key as soon as you fill out the info. Asks for your Name, email, birthdate.

They said daily batches so check every day or just sit tight for the fansites to give them out. Either way, good luck everyone. :)

It really burns my *** that a place like file planet gets beta keys for subscribers. What about the people like me who have paid in full for their preorders? I have to sit here and pray for a key. Kinda lame imo.... and before you say it; yes, I am mad bro...

Well actually they don't. Only the lucky few. Also it doesn't address the people who rush in, register and then ditch the service.

Does anyone know what time zone fileplanet is in? I would like to have a good idea of the time during which I should be logging in and trying to get a key. And do you guys think that they would even have it open at say, 12am tomorrow their time?

Yea... dunno who would do that to a service that will probably never use again (hint hint, nudge nudge, wink wink)

Their headquarters is located in San Francisco. But who know when they'll release more. They might do something like release 5 per hour or dump them all at 1pm PST.

Well it does looks like FP will allow members to download the beta client. You know, just in case you the fate makes a mistake and hands you a beta. You'll be prepared at least. :P

If any one is looking for this make sure to look under the "Beta" tab and not the "MMORPG" tab.

Just as an aside: If anyone does get the key, note the time it happened. Let us know the time and timezone you are in. It'd be a pretty good hint as to when the keys are going out on a daily basis.

Eh, I've got like 17 hours left to DL the update. Some thing isn't working the way it's supposed to on my router, so I can't forward ports (yet). I'm maxing out at 100 KB/S and averaging more like 50 KB/S.

What I worry is by the time you paid $7, they ran out of codes. Fileplanet will thank you very much for paying and subscribing to their service.

For those people that are experiencing slowness in downloading the client, this link is quite useful:

www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/post/3658534#3658534

Any torrent client works. I am using bittorrent. Went from ~20kbps with SE downloader to over 100kbps with bittorrent.

Edit: Over 200kbps now.

Didn't SE say they were going to do an Open Beta soon? If I can't get in sooner than that I'll just wait for the OB to start. Even if it's just a few weeks early to play FFXIV that'll satisfy me as I can at least get a general idea how the game will function on my system.

Like seriously, screaming along at almost 1kb/s. At this rate I might be done by next year.

Anyone know what the ports are for the updater?
