I've been getting that for the past 20 minutes or so.

You know when you're driving down that main road in town and depending on the day you can make every single light and just drive on home but at other times you just hit every single red light?

Yeah, it seems like I've been hitting a red light at every intersection trying to play this stupid game.

I was getting it earlier, but now it keeps telling me that I need to register the FF14 service first (error 5001 or something), which doesn't make sense because I couldn't have made it that far into the game without having a registered account in the first place.

I downloaded the latest patch files and was excited to finally play the game, then I saw that message after selecting "play". I feel like I'm walking 100 miles and backtracking 99, such slow progress towards my goal of actually getting to play FFXIV.

SE should have posted that Sept. 1 is the day to get your keys. Then Sept. 2 is when we can log into the game. I hope those that are actually in open beta playing are having a good time.

Note to SE: better learn from this and be prepared for Sept. 22nd.

What you said: "Note to SE: better learn from this and be prepared for Sept. 22nd".

What SE would read: "Note to SE: keep winging it the same way you have for years and hope it works itself out on launch day".

I swear SE uses a dartboard to determine how much of a **** they should give about the things they do. The more common levels of "giving a ****" that your average company follows has been cut out of the board too so all you're left with is "mediocre", "Gary Coleman", and "go **** yourself".

You immature brats acting like a well established company needs you to tell them what to do and how to do it should know that the entire point of an open beta is for this reason exactly. Relax a little, go take a break, take a breather, go out for some fresh air and come back later tonight or tomorrow morning and try again. The reason they have beta is because they expect problems and the reason you're in the beta is because you want them to figure out solutions to those problems, but some of you think this is a demo for the game and are acting like you've paid for this product - this is a privilege, nothing else so hold your horses and quit complaining, almost no one is playing the game right now, you're not the only ones.

It seems as if SE never compensates for the worse case scenario but instead just relies on the average amount of players that may log in at a time. This also goes towards the amount of trouble one may receive when attempting to get a VU from XI. While SE is aware that many people would like to get back into the game as soon as possible, they never seem to actually increase the limit load for how many can actually get the patch and sadly after a while people just accept it for what it is and deal with it.

The same goes for XIV instead of overcompensating for the load they may receive, they rather have players deal with fighting to get through a tight corridor rather then making it wider and easier to go through. Then i think it's also the case that when it comes to signing up for a key your spot isn't saved so basically a person who may have gotten in at the same time as you may cause you to lose your connection with the server. Basically what SE should do is when the beta keys are being given out there should be a dedicated feed with the user once they sign onto the site to obtain it rather then just a hit or miss situation.

If August 31st showed us anything, it showed us that in terms of their connectivity, they will always push to do just enough to let some in but not enough to keep it balanced. On that day, the simple XI prepatch update got pushed back a few times, upon trying to get the patch people were fighting over who gets the connection, the member site had it's share of problems and it was announced 14hrs before the start of the XIV beta that it would be pushed back. It's sad that the fix they felt was necessary didn't even appear to be that big of a deal especially when such a rare occurrence, whatever rare means to them doesn't appear as troublesome as an error where you can't connect to the lobby and get pushed off right away.

I could understand that they possibly didn't have the numbers to test the connectivity issues but what SE really needs to consider and it's something they've never attempted for XI but to at least give players that "dedicated" allotment of bandwidth when they are logging on to the servers and have a hub for those who are already signed on to wait and try again in a few minutes rather then constantly having to sign on again and again hoping it works. While some may knock POL at least when you signed on POL you were basically on for good. Now we have the SE site which we have to log into to register the beta, which could take multiple attempts. The Beta code itself which we need to sign into, which also may take multiple attempts, and finally logging into the game itself which may also take multiple attempts. So while at least with POL we could log on once and be done with it just having to fight over getting the patch, in a way we've gone a step back with the stability of the bandwidth received.

If there's one thing we need to pummel into SE's head is that no matter how well the average may work on an average basis, if you refuse to create more bandwidth during heavy traffic hours you'll lose more users because they don't want their playtime to be spent taking 30 mins just to log on. I know this is OB but this very issue is something that still plagues XI and if SE thinks the old and new players will just accept them cutting corners with bandwidth we gotta make sure they know that that's not the case. While I'll say inside it's not to bad aside from some lag issues with my character movement skipping here and there they gotta fix the tunnel it takes to get into the game itself. I know this may sound a bit like a rant but I'm sure many people can see the problems above and how it'll definitely hurt the opening of the game itself. I just wish they would invest more money into allowing people to get through the heavy traffic instead of giving us apologies lol.

I don't know why you say that like this is standard practice for any major company (hint: it isn't). For a "well established company" SE sure seems intent on always trying to alienate their customers. This entire beta mess is irritating because as much experience SE has had with running FFXI for years (and the issues we had during CB 1, 2, and 3) they don't seem to have learned anything from it. If the square block doesn't fit into the circle hole most people will go find the **** circle-shaped block, but SE is the kind of guy who will still keep right on trying to cram the square block into the round hole and hope that it fits the next time around.

When you see a problem on the horizon normally you put something in place to deal with it before it happens. It makes little sense to let the problem bite you in the *** and then scramble to fix it all after the fact.

They had to have known a ton of people were going to flood the servers (the way they always do ever since FFXI first went live), but it doesn't seem like they did anything at all to prepare for it. It's like throwing a party for 100 of your friends once a week and then one day you decide to let your friends invite more of their friends. You know that this time around there's probably going to be a lot more people than before, but you don't bother making extra preparations and just try to get by on the original food and drink for 100. It just seems lazy and sloppy for a company that's supposed to know what it's doing, but they've been operating that way for years so I'm really not all that surprised.

I was receiving that same error Lob. I just decided to stop trying for now. Were you able to get in at all finally?

The only thing i can think of is that i prior had an beta key for EU and now I'm using an NA. If you did the same thing or something similar maybe thats the issue.

Nope still can't get in. Just got a key tonight, haven't been in any previous betas.

What worries me is the possibility that some of the accounts created earlier tonight might not have valid keys thanks to all the server congestion and timeouts.
