Hello all,
After a long period of time, (and bad timing in itself with Reborn coming out) I would like to join you all in the ranks of FFXIV.
I'm been an old school fan of Final Fantasy since 7 and played up to 10-2 then 1-6 then fell off. Bought 12 but never activated. Now after playing GW2, Firefall, and my long favorite Dark Age of Camelot I figure I would go back to my roots. I'm eager to play A Realm Reborn but that will come in time.

So I figure as well that I ask if any have a so called buddy pass if that even still applies. If not oh well. Also I was curious about Beta testing for ARR. Seeing how this may be a chance to still play. Will they be shutting down the servers before ARR is out or what?

Anyways, hope i'll be able to join soon and participate in the fun! Thanks for your time, look forward to hearing and talking to you~

They had the final save of character data on Nov. 1st. So, any progress made now will not transfer over to ARR when it comes out. I think the buddy passes still do work though. If you still want to join in on the fun and watch the world end, I think I have a buddy pass that hasn't been used. Right now they are having a live event to usher in the apocalypse. The GMs are having some fun with the players and spawning a bunch of lvl 90 mobs in the cities to wreak havoc. You won't be able to do much for the current events though, because you really need a lvl 50 job. The apocalypse for Eorzea is set to happen this coming Sunday night / early Monday morning EST. After that, the servers will come down for a short period of time. Then they are going to reopen the servers for people to play, if they want, until ARR releases (but still no progress will transfer). Yoshi P said they would leave the 1.0 servers up as enough players log in, but if the populations drop too low, they would shut them down.

Yea I would join in the fun for sure. And at least get used to the ui. If you have an account will they advance it to beta or however it works?

A current game account is not necessary for alpha or beta access. You can apply for the alpha here:

The UI and all the spells / abilities are going to change for ARR, so don't get too used to it. I PM'd the buddy pass to you.

Account creation was suspended september 29th. The buddy pass code should still work for 2.0 though.

Yes I see that, registrations is unavailable at the time. But to request a Beta account you need to be previously registered. If I activate it for 2.0 would that allow me to request Beta?

Do you need a FFXIV account to sign up for beta/alpha, or just a Square Enix account? If it's just a SE account, you may still be able to make one, and apply for the beta using it?

EDIT: NVM, looks like the first requirement IS a FFXIV account, sorry.
