In 2010 I had purchased the collectors edition of the game I was so reved up FFXIV but like 90% of the community I was terribly let down. After a few days of bad server activity and game issues, I just stopped logging in.
Fast forward. . . Keep going. . . And stop.
So here we are today, I had installed FFXIV again only to find the servers were down. So quick check sure enough the game has entered another alpha stage. . . O.o?
So this has left me wondering, will my collectors edition of the game even be any good on the next release? Is SE just gonna shaft me for the money I spent on an unplayable game 2 and a bit years ago? What is the 411 on the state of FFXIV today? I would have read an FAQ Post if there was one so please forgive all the questions I'm just looking for a quick easy way to be brought up to speed. I tried logging into the lodestone website but because I hadn't logged into a game server in the last 30 days it pretty much gave me a stick and told me to sit on it.
Anyhow how was the game before they pulled it down again? Is the game going to be worth even looking at when ever they let people play? I see there is an alpha at some point will they let everyone participate in the beta? You can kind of guess from here the kind of questions I have and could keep asking, but if there is some helpful people out there that don't mind offering up some time to answer these questions and maybe others I didn't put down it would be awesome!
Cheers, and many thanks!
