So, I have a hopefully simple set of questions.
I got the collectors edition for FFXIV when it came out 2 years ago, primarily because I really liked FFXI (played it for 6 years) and wanted something special for FFXIV. So, I installed the game, tried to play it for about a month, then gave up (I will let you guess the reasons). Now that FFXIV is restarting with a better design, I hope to get back into it and recapture some of the MMO fun I miss from FFXI.
That said, I believe that as a former player who owns the collector's edition, I can play in the phase 3 beta which is starting this Friday. So as such:
1. Is that the case, can I play in phase 3 beta?
2. How do I go about doing that? Do I have to download the game, and where do I do that? I already registered my game code with my account on the SE site, but that didn't seem to do much.
3. Is phase 3 this Friday? And if so, do you know what time it opens? I read on a forum post that it will be open on weekends only, but I don't know if that is Japanese time, or what.
