End of beta phase 1Follow

I was wondering if anyone knows if SE will inform us when beta phase 1 is at its end and also if there will be new invites going out for phase 2 or it will have the same testers as in phase 1?

Thanks.

This the plans for the beta with what duration each phase will have http://gdl.square-enix.com/ffxiv/download/en/FFXIV_2.0_BETA_Roadmap_EN.pdf

As for the second question SE said that in each phase the testers will increase.

I'm sure they will say something on the official forums when more invites go out, I keep an eye on the dev tracker over there so as soon as I see something there I will let everyone know here.

As far as I know, there's still nothing stopping people from getting invites to phase 1.

That was my understanding, each phase adds more people and servers.

Looks like there is still hope to get in! Too bad I didn't apply using my crappy 6 year old laptop specs as well, maybe they would have lul'd at it and wondered if it could play it. Also, I take it that multiple applications are pointless?

Well they say you don't need to apply multiple times but what stopping ya? They only need a different email. The survey is optional but you can still put the same specs if you want.

Fair Enough XD. I have two friends IRL that are legacy but it seems like neither of them give a crap about playing in the beta >.>. **** Casuals.

I don't think anyone can confirm or deny its realness without breaking NDA.

Yep, but shouldn't that mean that the site is a fake? Isn't it breaking the NDA?

I do not see how is it breaking the NDA, is just saying Part 4 of phase one will be in X or Y Days.

And is not like SE is gonna do something anyways.

Probably the only way to confirm or deny its fakeness would be this: Watch the little countdown timer at the bottom. If, after the countdown clicks, anyone you know is Legacy disappears from the face of the earth for a few days.... Smiley: lol

It's breaking the NDA by pinging the beta servers to determine their status. Obviously we don't know for sure that is what he's doing, but that is what he's portraying anyway. I'm kind of surprised it hasn't been taken down yet, maybe they're OK with it or maybe they're too busy with the beta to deal with it, I don't know.

According to Road Map

The minimum is 8 weeks for whole beta phase to be done.
The maximum is 16 weeks for whole beta phase to be done.

So i put them in average is 12 weeks which is 3 months.

The beta started on Feb 25th so add up 3 months + announcement release date.

So, I will bet they will release in June.

Last rumor, from a source who were correct about everything else regarding ARR up till this point, said July Release so I'm betting then. June seems too soon honestly, even July does.

I'm guessing August or September for PC release, February or March 2014 for PS3.

If you're expecting June, prepare for disappointment

My guess is June or July, depending on the progress of the PS3 version, which is reportedly being optimized as we speak.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's ready in June though.

I sure hope they'll release the game in June, or early July, that way I still have 2 months before school starts again XD otherwise I'm gonna be a saaaad Moogle =(

...Now when I think about it; don´t really care when release is, but the release of Phase 4 is something I'm looking forward to very much :D Love that they give everyone a free "trial" before the release ^^

My guess is it will be released when Yoshi thinks it's ready.

I gave up on trying to guess about game releases. Every time i am disappointed one way or another. Never did i guess it right and most times when a company says we are gonna release it in "A" time they end up releasing it in "B" or "C". I do understand it though cause a ton of things could go wrong during beta etc so i just end up accepting it and just wait for the release. I certainly hope they will delay it a bit if that means a better end product.

I'll say that Yoshi was deliberately vague about the release time frame, because he didn't want to get anyone's hopes up. It was the fanbase who added up all the time between beta phases and bug fixes and came up with "summer."

Right now if they said it'd be out in November, it still wouldn't really be a "delay" because they never gave us a hard and fast date to compare it with.
