I have no idea if this helps, but I just spammed F5 for a good 10 mins, and when my PC clock turned :45 exactly the page loaded right away. Leads me to to think SE are doing in wither 1 hour intervals or mabye every 15min. Sorry if thats old news, but thought it could help.
I was able to get mine as of 10 minutes ago so yes it does work right now.

Seriously, you won't be @#%^ing happy until SE releases a full sized Bahamut avatar you can @#%^ing ride and use to kill players that annoy you, one shot AV/PW/Shinryuu, and burn the FFXI nations to the @#%^ing ground for fun. All while actually restoring mp used instead of costing any.
