"2013/08/18 23:07 Beta Test Extended for Worlds Hosted on the North American and European Datacenter (Aug. 18)
Thank you very much for your participation in the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Test.

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with Worlds hosted on the North American and European datacenter which is preventing certain characters from logging into the game.

An emergency maintenance, taking place between Aug. 18, 2013 9:30 p.m. to Aug. 19, 2013 12:30 a.m. (PDT), is currently underway to address characters experiencing this issue.

Phase 4 of the Beta Test was originally scheduled to conclude on Aug. 19, 2013 at 2:00 a.m. (PDT). However, given the fact that affected characters are numbering in the tens of thousands and the time it will take to address the situation including the time required for the emergency maintenance, we will be extending the Beta Test until Aug. 19, 2013 8:00 a.m. (PDT) for Worlds hosted on the North American and European datacenter.

We hope for your continued participation in the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Test.

* The Beta Test will end as scheduled on Aug. 19, 2013 2:00 a.m. (PDT) for Worlds hosted on the Japanese datacenter.

We deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused by this prolonged issue and thank you for your patience."

so instead of ending at Aug 19 2AM, it's been extended to end at 8AM (PDT)

I logged in quickly to see if any progress was lost - nope, I landed right in the CS that dropped me before. Hooray!

So I finished up the cutscenes and hurried back to the inn room I'd unlocked.

I, too, am stuck at work for the beta test extension. With Early Access (I'm a Legacy Member) and Release coming up in less than a week (YAY!!!), though, I can wait. :)

Wish I had thought to logout in an Inn or Sanctuary, though.

This is my first post, by the way; I figured it was time to start getting involved. :) I shall avoid the official forums for now, though.

Edit: Oops! It's not my first post after all. Well, it's my first post beyond trying to get a Beta key for my wife, though, so I'm not entirely inaccurate. :)

Bummer. I gotta work during the extension.. Luckily enough I was able to log back in and get myself to an inn before I had to go to work. As long as I'm getting the rested experience bonus over the next five days I'm happy.

Well, it's good to know you people are still addicted. Smiley: lol

I logged on (yay!) and put my character to bed. I have to go to the shore now, and won't be back until Saturday. But I'll be around, I can access the forums via my cell phone. :)

They should have extended it by at least a full day IMO. This doesn't really help people that much who were locked out for the entire Open Beta.

It also doesn't put the servers through the paces at prime time. Does not compute.

Its personal preference and all, but yes we need to educate WoW players that this is OUR game, these are Characters and not Toons. Time to beat that into them one at a time.
