Apparently the game is live for people who bought CE, and they are playing it right now? Well I bought the CE and Gamestop wont fork it over. Whats up with that? How are all these other CE owners able to play?

People in other parts of the world are playing. Most of the people saying that they're playing right now are in Australia. It's the 22nd there.

either got lucky from shipping companies, or their local stores didn't read or care about the release date.

I tried to get mine today also. I talked to my X GF who is manger at the nearest Gamestop and she thinks it's because Japan is 13 hours ahead of us. So it's the 22nd there. She wouldn't give me my copy tho, 'cause the release date is posted tomorrow and there are fines involved.

My copy only shipped today (thanks for nothing, Amazon) I paid for release-day delivery, so it'll be here tomorrow. >:

#1 most of the people who physically have the copy of FFXIV CE ordered it online and recived it by mail. Shops that post out their orders seem to be allowed to psot them in advance to compensate for travel time. However shops who sell over the counter in store are limited to only be able to hand them out on the release day.

#2 the release day (22nd) is already here the parts of the world that are ahead time-zone wise. So its already teh 22nd here is Aus and in Japan which is why some people can go online. However America being way over the other side (about 16-17 hours behind japan) is still int he 21st which is why you can''t get your copy and play yet

Correction: People in Japan and Australia can potentially log in and play right now. It sounds like people are having a hard time logging in.

It's the 21st where you are. You're copy shipped today as did mine, Overnight, FedEx. The day following the 21st? The 22nd. FFxiv release date? 22nd.

That means, you'll get it on the 22nd. Also known, as the day its released, or "Release day".

Yay! Thinking is fun.

Also, you paid .99cents for FedEx overnight. That sh*t is not cheap. You normally would pay 25+.

I make the same mistake over and over again forgetting that sarcasm never comes across through type. Even if I was serious though, with all these different NA EU CE versions floating around it would be easy to get confused. Someone who doesn't nerd their life away might not know about all the CE options of some soon to be released Japanese mmo.

Also how could you figure someone being stupid by not knowing what kind of CE options are available for a video game? They could have just heard about it yesterday. I think I can answer that question though. You're a ****.

Case in point, a legitimate question.

Uhh, what?

How does that make me stupid? I just said something differently then what you would have said it. It still works.

Why am I having this stupid argument? Holy crap.

k, I'm totally confused now. I'm guessing you guys are Japanese players with decent knowledge of the English language and there's some cultural barrier hindering communication? What I said was totally fine. What Likibiki made absolutely no sense. And what you just said sounded like a corporate slogan.

So, I guess I'm done with this thread now. I'll just back out of it slowly..

Walked into gamestop without a preorder or nething and they gave me one. I am practically giddy with excitement. The CE is definitely worth it btw the packaging and everything is top notch.

Laugh. Yeah, we're all english speaking Japanese players. Over here (in Japan) we are unable to get inside our mirrors to stand in them. Kudos to you Americans for figuring out how to get inside those blasted things.

I dunno, I've been in my office and in my car and in my house. I haven't figured out how to get in a mirror though. The thing is only like half an inch thick and I'm a lot bigger than that. Perhaps he just has a large mirror with a door on it or something.
