Whelp, I'm sure there's plenty in the same boat I'm in. I wasn't in any of the previous betas, and now I'm waiting for this beta to open up its registration, so the rest of us can get in on the action. Hopefully there won't be any problems in Square sending the 20 digit codes to us open beta players. I'd really like to get this game downloaded. I'm actually quite excited, where as when I was in the 1.0 beta I was screaming bloody murder about square committing suicide. Final Fantasy XI was the best gaming experience of my life, and this feels like a familiar, comfortable situation that I'm sliding into, rather than a new experience. I'll never forget my years in XI. I could almost feel the chill of the morning, as the sun rose over South Gustaberg, or the smell of sawdust as I did my woodworking. I really hope to have similar, fun experiences here.

10 years from now, I want to nostalgia over XIV as hard as I do when I hear this.

My first MMO was FFXI. I loved every minute of it, I haven't played in years but I can still remember the San D'oria theme quite clearly. Unfortunately like you and many others... I am also waiting for the 17th lol

Well I was in the first few betas but for some odd reason I havent gotten any codes for 4, and my boyfriend wants to play too anyway so Imma wait so he can join up since he wasnt able to join then.

Aaand yeah I played also FFXI back when it was out for the ps2, with the HDD and the keyboard xD man good times. Game was difficult for me 'cause I've only played PSO back then. But in any case i didnt last long on FFXI because the friends I was playing with kinda bailed and so I got bored.

Then I joined up WoW which I've been an avid fan for 8 years. I tried FFXIV 1.0 too for a while so now I'm ready to try RR!
But yeah waiting on the 17th... so how many hours to go? xD


PS: Cute pony picture btw!

When I read the thread title, I thought you meant that you were counting on threads and waiting for the 17th one, for some strange reason.

I'd assume 5 AM EST. I won't be home until 7:30AM EST though, so unfortunately I won't be on for release.

Derpy is best pony....right after the fabulous Rarity. I still play WoW for a few hours a week, but I haven't had any passion for the game since WOTLK.

Hells yes. You can even make your own thread if you want.

That is an interesting way of reading it.


3 hours and 45 minutes left?

Holy cow, I might just stay up. My Ambien (sleeping pill) didn't even phase me.

I can't imagine it'll redirect until 5, so that's expected.

First see if this works for you: http://forum.square-enix.com/ARR-Test/threads/7065

If you played in 1.0, you may be able to just get in without registering.
