I can't even patch the game let alone log into a server. The patcher keeps timing out and when it doesn't the download starts and stops. I've managed to download 18% since last night. It might just be me but I have doubts about that.

Makes me wonder. All of this is happening on "empty" servers, not merged yet.
What will happen after Servers get Merged and more populated?

Any posts about the issue I'm having? I haven't looked much to see if there's anyone having problems patching.

Populations always spike after patches, and 1.21 was perhaps one of the most anticipated patches we've seen in a long time. It's not unreasonable to assume we'll be back to normal population trends by the time server merges come around.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love for these crowds to be the new norm (it was fantastic playing last night - people everywhere even in zones I've spent entire weekends as the only player around), and who knows, perhaps 1.21 was finally the catalyst for sustained population growth, but history shows that things will typically settle back down after this peak.

But a population spike in FFXIV is more like a low-medium population in any other MMORPG. There aren't hundreds of thousands of players all grappling to log on, there a few tens of thousands, and I would think that SE's servers should really be able to handle what is their relatively small population by now (and much more).

I completely and 100% agree with you, but I can't help to think back to all the times we've been told by the FFXIV dev team about how the current engine just can't do certain things they'd like to implement in the game, which is often things we players consider as standards for any MMO and the underlying need for the 2.0 shift.

Perhaps that also extends into concurrent player population in relation to server performance.
