So I was able to login about 5:30 EST this morning after a half an hour of logging on/off. Deleted my 1.0 character and made a new one on the Ultros server. Name is Jaggars Oliana. Started as a Lancer and ran around Gridania doing the quests and was able to just start killing squirrels and lady bugs before I had to leave for work. Made it to level 4...

Now I'm stuck at work for the next 7 hours before I can log in again.


Who else is in my boat with me? How far were you able to get before you had to be a grown up and go to work? Oh and today was a mandatory inservice so I couldn't get *Sick* today either...it was kind of a bummer...

Got through the opening cut scene, accepted the first main quest... and now I wait. I can play for about 30 min during lunch, but otherwise I've got another 6 and a half hours to go.

I really should've just taken a day off today. >.>

Oh man.. I've been waiting so long to play this, p4 is my first time getting into the game, I woke up a couple hours earlier then usual after getting hardly any sleep because I waited for the problem with Na ps3 accounts to resolve itself. But I got to play for a couple hours and I was so tempted to call into work when it came time to leave.. But I'm on my way. To work with heavy machinery while sleep deprived....

I'd rather be in Eorzea.

That should be a bumper sticker.

Got my guy created (name is short and sweet: Valk Ayree), completed the first quest, accepted the second, and logged off. Thank you PS3 for your little *ding ding* when the update was finished or I wouldn't have woken up that early to get that far. Now I need to hang on until 4pm.

Forget being stuck at work... I MAY NEVER GET TO PLAY FFXIV ARR!!!

Wifey not to thrilled about me going back to playing final fantasy... I was not so great at managing my time with FFXI nor FFXIV 1.0 and I pretty much left some hefty scars emotionally that we've since been blessed to overcome. But none the less... I may just have to kiss my gaming life goodbye. Have you ever wished you could keep what you know about the past but change it? Well that's how I feel about playing FFXI... wish I could go back and smack myself REAL HARD and warn old marty... err I mean jayfly about time and family management.

Put a positive swing on it. Promise yourself that you will take breaks, don't allow it to consume you. Tell her it is not FF11. Put emphasis on duty finder and the ease of finding parties. Tell her it caters to older gamers who have real lives. Most of my troubles with my time management came from waiting on other people. That won't happen so much in FFXIV. Tell her the dungeons are timed. More teleportation to get to areas instantly instead of walking. You can take breaks in between. You have to make it your enjoyment, but don't let it become who you are.

Hehe. I would buy one.

I am pleasantly surprised that everything just worked exactly right on the first try. Crazy. PS3 and PC!

So now it's work fast and get everything done! A quick stop by the kids' school orientation (on a Friday?!) and then -

Let the Wild Rumpus begin!

Get your wife to play, and spend time with her in game. That's about the sum of it. If she can't tolerate your passions there's a deeper problem there than time management.

Make it something shared, you do something she's interested in and wants to introduce you to, she shares playing FFXIV with you. If you both go along with it, it will bring you closer together. Give it a shot.

RL > Games - you have to do what you have to do...

I had to learn a balance years ago when I played FFXI... it's not easy sometimes because we get into these games so heavily they become a part of us... but if you don't balance you can lose everything so....

Definitely take care of your family, then log in when you are able. You'll find it rewarding when you do get to play.

Hope this helps. I went through this myself.

Got to work an hour early, so I can get home an hour sooner. In the meantime, going to do some writing and Web work, and going to attend my hardcore lunchtime workout.

Come 4 p.m. PST, I'll head home and launch my new character. I'm stoked!

I've got (7 to 4), (8 to 5), and (9 to 6) options without notification or penalty. I try to get to work at 7 so really I'm never late. Pretty awesome actually.

Starting to wish I was at work, 5 1/2 hours now, and best I've done it 3rd in queue before disconnected from server, every other attempt is met with disconnected from game server. Was kind of expecting this , hopefully I will get in before the day is over.

Being in a relationship with a gamer has done wonders for me. We basicly feed off each other when it comes to excitment for a new game or a patch is whatever MMO we are playing. The key thing is, we play together when we can and we make it a point to spend time together IRL doing things like shopping, dinner, catching a movie or simply being together while we both read books that we are currently enjoying.

Someday the depressing Nursing Home scene is going to be replaced by our generation of happy old retired gamers just MMO'ing their way to a happy end of life. Food thru an IV, just **** when ever you need to. "One sec, bio.. ok rdy."

Woke up at four, finally got in around five, and almost made it to level 8 before I had to leave for work. It's worse now that I played it. I really should have called in today...

Got to work an hour early, so I can get home an hour sooner. In the meantime, going to do some writing and Web work, and going to attend my hardcore lunchtime workout.

Come 4 p.m. PST, I'll head home and launch my new character. I'm stoked!


I've got (7 to 4), (8 to 5), and (9 to 6) options without notification or penalty. I try to get to work at 7 so really I'm never late. Pretty awesome actually.

I would kill for a flexible schedule like that. What makes it worse is that my work is totally independent from anyone else, I could be home and work just as efficiently. But not only will the top guys not allow us to work from home, they won't even let us have flexible schedules. At least I get out early on Fridays in the summer, even if it's only a little.

I love my job as well, it's super flexible(similar to Valkayree), so I could start my CNJ this morning, dump it in a sanctuary, and then go to work :)
