Atleast if we ( all in Zam) who dont get into the open beta, Even though its not really open, we'll be playong in 20 days. Less then 3 weeks so thats a little good news.
Not true, because in twenty days, SE still won't have the hardware in place to handle the load. Everyone will go through the same **** thing they are going through right now. We did it for Beta phase 1 & 2 & 3, it only makes sense that open beta, and launch go the exact same way.
So more like in 30 days, we will all be able to finally log in, create a new character, and enjoy the wonders of FFXIV.
