Yea, I had a feeling SE would be under prepared for launch. Not even released in NA yet and servers are getting packed already huh.

If you didn't expect server congestion... when the largest player base (JP) is trying to log in... along with various other places like EU and AUS where some got there game in time... all of which are click furiously to log in all at once.. well.. nevermind....

so much for "Less people playing CE = no congestion"

Looks like they can't even handle the volume of CE players logging in. If this game didn't burn so much electricity, I'd log in an stay logged in the day before SE release cuz **** gonna be bonkers then. >.>

It's not so much I didn't expect congestion, it's SE didn't expect congestion. When FFXI launch there was 20 servers, and that was just a JPN PS2 launch, not worldwide. FFXIV launch PC worldwide with only 17 servers!?

Totally called it!

A few days ago MasterOutlaw the Irrelevant wrote:
I wouldn't stress about midnight releases or even getting your copy the day of. Unless a small number of people ordered the CE you can almost guarantee that there's going to be service downtime caused by all the opening day congestion anyway. I would be surprised if everything went smoothly, not only because it's the official release of a brand new game, but it's also SE we're talking about. Murphy's Aerith's Law always prevails in these kinds of situations, in this case the metaphorical sword being planted squarely into the backs of the hopes of dreams of those wishing for a perfect launch.

I would say I'll happily sit back and wait for the 30th, but I know whatever happens the 22nd will be 1000x worse come then.





And yes, I went there. Take that, FFVII fanboys!

I don't see how anyone can expect to play yet at all here in NA - being as opening day is not actually until September 22, NA time. When they talked about the game being playable the 21st, I thought that basically meant in Japan it would be - not here.

Idk, I'm getting the CE (hopefully tomorrow in the overnight mail) but I don't really expect to be able to start playing until the 23rd or 24th. Any launch of any new MMO is going to have these same problems, so we may as well get used to it.
