Thanks, though, seems like it only made it worse.

Should have known this sort of thing would happen...SE sucks at this sort of thing.

Does anyone know what time FP posted the betas? I got a feeling the next give away will be at the same time.

I'm surprised SE is allowing this. They're essentially selling beta keys. It's especially ridiculous that they're apparently getting their keys before the fan sites.

Fileplanet hosted some FFXI content, didn't they? Maybe this is part of their business arrangement. It's the only thing I can think of that makes sense.

If it isn't part of a business arrangement... SE might stop giving FP anymore keys...

Yeah, it really ****** me off that fileplanet gets their beta keys before fan sites, ESPECIALLY when you consider that Fansites should have gotten their keys two days ago and SE dropped the ball on it.

Fileplanet is kinda SELLING these beta keys in some way.
I'm not paying 3.33 or 7 dollars for a chance to win the beta key.
using those few bucks on a lottery ticket might be wiser.
I'm keeping faith on being one of the lucky persons and get the key from ZAM.

who's with me!?

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.


I can't remember where but it was here on ZAM a day or two ago. After this last phase of CB they were gonna do an OB sometime after. No word was given when they would but I'm pretty sure they said it would be. Unless they are giving out exclusive items to beta testers I don't see what's so special about spending real cash in hopes of getting in sooner. Your character data will be wiped before launch day and just about anything we want to know we can ask now that the NDA was lifted.

yeah man, on the other hand, it will be funny for those ppl jumping in on the FP ship for 7 bucks and then some of the other sites they signed up beta for hand them a key.

i would expect lots of "oh well, it's just 7bucks and i think it's worth it" replies

The subscribing page at fileplanet is down now. Guess they didn't want a last minute deluge of site crashing applications. Who knows. I'm downloading the client files now, but no luck accessing subscription page at all (as a new user or registered).

Yeah, but this was an anomaly. Although I suppose I could post more. If I post 80 times per day, I'll hit 10K before FFXIV goes live.

Although ever since they stopped giving out 10K titles, it's not like I need to bust my *** for it. I'd have loved a 10K title, but I was too late to the party on that one.

Like I said earlier, I'm betting they don't want any last minute shenanigans. My guess they're trying to hook up older subscribers which is nice, I suppose. That or they really are getting bombed with apps

Application - You can put whatever here; it's just for you to know what it is. Put "FF14 Beta" or whatever you like. These are the ports you will need to set and you will need to redirect them to your computer that you are running the beta on.

"To qualify you must be a FilePlanet or Founders' Club subscriber residing in North America." Get outta here!

Kidding, but we don't know whether it's going to be at noon, when they most likely open their office doors 8-9am or what. It's a guessing game and that's how they see it fit to keep things "fair".

It doesn't mean you've gotten a key, just that it doesn't recognize you as a US citizen. A friend of mine got the same e-mail but it just links you back to the FFXIV beta sign up page, nothing more than a notice.

It appears they still haven't updated the beta key section of the site. I'm assuming it's only about 08:00 on the West Coast so people probably aren't in the office yet. I figure that someone has to set it up so that beta keys can be accessed again. I'm hoping that it will be done within the next couple hours.

I have a feeling SE postponed the giveaways because of some sort of deal with fileplanet. I can remember the Aion beta keys being given away by the thousands to fansites and by my count between three different fansites I see about 10,000 posts for FF14 beta keys. That's really not that many. Sounds to me like they are just trying to get people to pay 7 bucks for them before the rest of us get them for free.
