I haven't played MMO's in years, so this may be a normal thing to y'all... but it was very creepy while I was fighting a mole rat near Limsa, when the server status went to 0 receiving... and everyone just stopped moving.
I couldn't put my weapon away or attack, but I could move around. The mole rat stopped attacking. My teammate froze in active stance... Everyone around me just froze... very freaky.
I ran around for a bit before attempting to log off, which didn't work. I ended up having to just close the program. Just reminded me of some psychological thriller horror movie, or something.
On a side note, Mysidia has been laggy and glitchy all night. Until this total crash finally happened. What gives SE?
