Really!?

Right now there are 790 (give or take) people on Selbina at 11:30PM EST.

I've tried to pop my retainer in every market ward in Ul'dah and it's generated this error.

Why do I have to go to another major city?

Why would I put my retainer in a city that has 1/10th, if not less, of the population of Ul'dah?

With a population 790...why am I getting this error?

I guess SE doesn't have any expertise, dev talent or experience in MMORPGS...FFXI!!!?

Please insert <white knight> comment here cause I really don't understand this? I want to be a white knight...

I hate to say this but...

Square = thumbs up.

SquareEnix = thumbs down.

I want to believe, make me believe.

Square Enix has absolutely and unequivocally admitted the game at launch was a failure in every possible way, which is why they're building a completely new one. The servers that support this game now are absolutely awful and they've said as much. Don't be surprised.

While it's weird that every ward has that issue, I would assume that with nearly 800 folks online that your server has quite a few people on it... since retainers stay in the wards even when their owner isn't on-line... Also now I'm curious if people who didn't subscribe had their retainers stay in the wards, if so maybe they need to reset them so only people paying have the opportunity to make some gil.

Otherwise it's just a server error, or bug, or poor coding, take your pick.

It's possible, I know SE used to reset wards quite frequently which people complained about, so now it's very likely barring game offtime for updates or crashes people who don't even play still has empty retainers standing around lol.

So either retainers from people who don't play are standing around pointlessly or the game can't handle enough retainers for a minuscule population? Either option is pretty bad, really.

Could you imagine an auction house that wouldn't let you place things on it because it was "full?" How about an auction house that wouldn't let you put anything else on it because RMT banned three weeks ago listed a bunch of crap at 9,999,999? Strange fellows, these people at SE, strange fellows.

Homie, this is just good ole fashion cutting edge game mechanics! Auction House was just to old and outdated for SE.
