Beta 4 Start time 9am GMT on Fri 16 Aug

And finishes 9am Monday 19 August.

Confirmed on PS3 notification email from SE.


Original Post:
A majority of the players here played during the Phase 3 beta test, and therefore have access to P4 starting on Friday, August 16th.

Here is the PC Launcher Download for P4:
http://gdl.square-enix.com/ffxiv/inst/ffxivsetup.exe

This is just a small 100mb file that includes the Launcher only. As far as anyone can guess, the Launcher will be able actually download and install the game Client on the 15th.

The critical piece of missing information is:
What exact time on Friday does Phase 4 go live?!

I'm sure someone will post within minutes of this information becoming public. Perhaps with the size of the community here we could even hear some rumblings before the official announcement. Previous betas have typically started at:

Quote:
Phase 3 Dates and Times
June 28, 2013 (Friday), 2:00 a.m. to June 30 (Sunday), 2:00 a.m. (PDT)
June 28, 2013 (Friday), 9:00 a.m. to June 30 (Sunday), 9:00 a.m. (GMT)


Best guess for now is Friday, the 16th @ 2:00am PDT. First person to confirm that gets one ton of cookies.

We can set it up so this conveyer goes directly into your mouth.

Meanwhile, I'm guessing that the first place the official info will show up is the Beta forum, possibly under the Dev Tracker.

Anyone have a suggestion for another location where SE would make the official Start Time announcement?

Twitter accounts possibly?

I'm actually more interested in what time it will end on the 19th. Is it ending on the 19th, but 2am so we don't really get to play on the 19th? Or would it maybe be worth my time to take the day off. >.>


Edit: mmm conveyer belt of cookies...

You'd have to have a pretty big mouth for that conveyer...

I think he is saying that your breath could use more cookies, since people don't usually complain about cookie breath. I am guessing that the usual start time from all the other phases will apply to p4. Still, this is only a guess.

Great idea. I've never really followed the Devs on Twitter. Are there some established Reps that post the official stuff? Anyone know the links?
