So release day is approaching slowly yet surely.

I'm not in the beta but i've been watching news, videos etc just about every day in anticipation. I plan on getting it on midnight release if gamestop will be going that route.

Although I do have a concern/premonition/worry if you will.

I'm just afraid (and it will probably happen so i guess nothing you can do) that the first few days after release will be plauged with servers going down, exploits and bugs being fixed with updates etc. Of course like any mmo game.

I'm not posting this to complain. I just wanted to know what everyones views on this are. From my experience with FFXI it was very frustrating but in the end we all had to just deal with it.

On release day if the servers keep going down, what will you do? I'll lose a couple more hairs.

My point of view...


I'll just plan for it to be up/down for the first few weeks, gonna mainly keep to myself, might work on some gathering stuff rather than trying to do the storyline, leves, or crafting until a little bit of stability come thru.

Let me put it this way: as tempted as I'm gonna be to take some vacation time from work to play XIV when it comes out, I know better. Don't want to sink vacation time into sitting around waiting for emergency maintenance to end. Pessimism or realism? You decide.

Lets hope with FFXIV SE isn't as banstick happy as they are in FFXI.. I am sure everyone can remember those incidents....

A little tip for you guys. If you plan on running a few leve's here and there while the server is going down a lot... don't. If you get booted (or the server crashes) during a leve, you auto fail the leve. I hope they fix this though.

Does sound like a good time to craft.

Yep. Get booted and lose the leve. I will not be taking vacation but will get on when I can. I will remain optimistic but whatever happens will happen.
