a long shot but worth a try I have been trying all day to get a key and just keep getting

"Applications for the FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test have been temporarily suspended. Please wait until we are ready to accept new applications and then try again."

I thought it was an open beta so how does locking people out help>? but yeah anyone got one and there pc cant handle it or something can let someone have a go who can :D?

If you read through the other posts, there's a large number of people that got stuck not being able to get a key (even trying constantly since it opened last night, then closed)... so yeah, it's a longshot that someone would give you one. ;)

As someone got their key aprox 30 seconds after they were released last night(...please don't rage me for saying this...

WHY IS ANY OF THIS A SURPRISE? I thought it was well know they stagger the keys as they tweak the servers. I thought a big part of open beta was stress test in a controlled fashion. Make adjustments...introduce patches/updates...and move ahead...and try to avoid said issues when the game is officially released. The only way to do this is to control the influx of players.

Sure..SE could have been more forthcoming with how they planned on handing them out...but would have really mattered? If anything...the bottleneck last night would have been worse if they came out and said they were only going to allow X amount of keys on the first night.

Yes it sucks for those who didn't get in...but you will. Eventually...

I was originally not gonna play the game till I tried the beta beforehand. Unfortunately I broke down an ordered the CE; regretting that now. Also definately regret having a security token linked to my SE account; turning out to be a pain in the *** getting a new 1 time password every few minutes i try to get a key.

It sure would have been nice if people that preordered the CE got instant OB access. Just as another little added bonus.

Simool you just described the closed beta process. An open beta is exactly that, open. Everyone and their mother is allowed a key so that the servers can be put under stress to see if they can handle it when the game goes live. Since the registration server/login server is more or less a smoking pile of ruin right now it should give a good indication of how well prepared they are for live.

I can't believe with as many times as I've seen people correct people like you, that you still believe that open beta = completely public. Open Beta means the NDA has been lifted. Sometimes software in open beta is allowed to the general public but that's happenstance.. not the definition.

SE doesn't hate you, they just don't care about you. Same as how they don't care about me or anyone else here. All they care about is the O holy dollar.


(Logically though you think they would care about us since we provided them with the holy dollar, but sometime I don't understand those poor souls running silly enix.)
