Was there some kind of doubt that 6/21/13 would happen on 6/21/13?

Was there actually info on transferring legacy characters? It says see below for further details, but nothing is there.

(I really need to bring my key into work one day so I can log into the beta forums myself.)

I still don't understand why the test doesn't run Friday-Monday... I understand for Japan it works out to be more like Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon, but why not just add in 12 more hours to the test so that NA and EU players can get a good portion of Sunday to level as well?

So devs can sleep over the weekend before working through the week to fix bugs for the next test.

Devs don't need sleep, just ask Yoshi-P! That's what Lucky Strikes and coffee are for. Smiley: sly

So what are the chances of someone who signed up for beta on Saturday to get invited to the next beta weekend??

Pretty good considering I've been in Alpha v2 and since Beta started up have gotten 4 invites. :P

The first two beta weekends are weekends that I am out of town on... I might have to **** off my girlfriend a bit and wake up at 4-5am to get in some quality time with the beta before we take off.

Don't see anything in there as well pertaining to transfers. It was mentioned they would provide a link for applications to transfer at some point. Think this test is to make sure the
data transferred from v1 properly. If all goes well I would like to think that they will provide the link for the application either during test 3 or 4 of phase 3. Everything is being wiped after the end of phase 3 so they want the transfer to take affect on phase 4 where it should carry forward after open beta into live.

What you are saying about waiting for phase 4 (that will not be wiped) makes sense.

So the part about transferring 1.0 characters in phase 3 is confusing.

I meant more specifically the transferring of 1.0 character data, not the transferring of worlds. If next weekend we can use our 1.0 characters, was there any info on how exactly we access them?

Starting with Test 2, we will begin testing the transfer of Version 1.0 character data to FFXIV: ARR. After logging in, clicking World Selection at the character selection screen will now display a list of Worlds including Legacy Worlds. Selecting a World with Version 1.0 character data will display any characters available on said World.


I hope I can quote that without breaking some beta rule.

Thanks!

Sounds like we will be back on the original 1.0 World. Then, we will be notified of some kind of application to fill out to get the character transferred to a release Server.

Really hoping the details will be filled out for this process so everyone with 1.0 characters can rest easy. I'm a bit anxious about it myself. I just want verification that my 1.0 character is going to smoothly appear in the (new) server our LS is moving to (by early the early access date, or even phase 4 preferably.) It's the application part that has me wondering.
