I know it's early and the beta just ended but, I've been going through withdrawals since the error 3102 fiasco started last Friday. I'm feeling like I need to use again, but I know I can't even if I wanted...

Four hard days are ahead of us. I know I can't be the only one feeling the urge to use.

Here is two 2 days of being sober. Against my will, but, sober nonetheless.

Let's help each other out. What are you guys doing to fill the void?

I am going to play to one of my other games on my PS3. Maybe restart The Last of Us. Or actually beat Ni No Kuni. Or whip out the old PS2 and play all my old RPGs on there for bit. But I will be set til Early Access starts!

Though it's not the same, I'm going to try and get my RPG fix by completing Tales of Xillia and Final Fantasy XIII-2. Nothing will truly satiate that wonderful, delicious, mouth-watering, melts in your mouth, not in your hands sweet goodness that is Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, though, so we must suffer from this withdrawal until this weekend. You can do it!!!

I'm gonna try and bury the urge with some Europa Universalis 4.

Try is the key word. Nothing else will do.

I might also turn to the bottle; but I'm in another twelve step for that.

I've been having this withdrawal on and off feeling since alpha last winter. Smiley: frown

At least I still have XI.

Oh yeah, heavy withdrawal symptoms here. I don't want to play any other RPG. I think I'll just farm gold in Duck Tales Remastered until early play.

I reluctantly logged out around 1:30AM last night, an hour after the emergency maintenance. I never got kicked, but I was too wary to leave the sanctuary for fear I'd get caught with my pants down. I should be playing Soul Hackers or SMTIV, but all I can think about is FFXIV.

The first step, ladies and gentlemen, is to admit you have a problem.

I see we have no problem with this step on these forums.

My wife was so good to me during this beta weekend, didn't bother me much at all :) although I did get away with it by telling her its a beta weekend I only get 2 days to play. I have no excuse when the game actually comes out tho as to why i'm sitting in front of the TV for hours on end >.>. Can't wait to get back to leveling been waiting years for this!

I had Internets, but my laptop could barely play XI, and I was going from 6AM to 9PM daily.

Hoping I can find an awesome community like old school FFXI Quetz's QCDN

Until then: entering FFXIV in Google every 5 minutes to see if there's any exciting news....

I should really play some of my PS3 games I haven't touched... or exercise (is that the thing where you don't have a controller?)
It's really hard for me to play other games when there's one I'm excited for. And once FFXIV starts it'll be hard to spend my game time on something else x_x

I hope u find some peace while dealing with the urges. Battling with cravings can take a lot out of a man. Meeting good friends help out lots. Hopefully we meet in game one day!

I'm having withdrawls but not quite as badly as in Phase 3. There is some comfort knowing that in a week from now we will be live and able to play 24/7 so right now I am just enjoying the Christmas morningesque anticipation.

The six hour extension helped me get an alt to lv.10 and into the inn before the clock ran out, and then I played around with the character creator 'til the time came.

Since then, I've pretty much done nothing but tell a co-worker about FFXIV:ARR (he'd been in the 1.0 beta), and trying to plan how to get everything set up for August 24th. I'm also putting my PC together today or tomorrow, and the first thing that'll probably go on it is the FFXIV:ARR benchmark. lol

I wouldn't say that I'm overly addicted to playing the game, but I did miss it between Phases 3 and 4, and miss being able to play it now, simply for a lack of much else to do online on the PS3. I'm more longing to see what comes later, as it's a part of the game I have yet to experience. I'm also longing to stop dying during most of the Conjurer solo quests. Smiley: glare

I did find out that three other people on my PSN play it though, so there's the making of a small group goin' on there. Would be nice, to start out with a static group to help get through things...

Then since the only thing I can do is watch short youtube videos we're all going to the ghettos and do some serious drugs, beat some hookers cuz by that point they will be hunting log mobs to us. Whos with me! :D

FFXIV Support Group: Early Access Code OCD Edition

While we might all be jonesing for the game, and jonesing badly, we shouldn't rush to register our early access codes all at once.

Remember, it's not going to fill the soul crushing void in your lives that we hope ffxiv will fill. You might think it will take your mind off of things, but really, it will not.

The site is jammed, it's clogged up. Super saturated. And that's just going to lead to more frustration and more jonesing.

Contact your sponsor if you are tempted. Remember, we are here to relearn healthy behaviors: the rush you are trying to get from registering game isn't a healthy alternative to your FFXIV game play addiction.

Use this as an opportunity to bolster your willpower. Take a step forward, not a step back.

I'm not going pretend like I didn't rush to register when I first read about it. I am admitting my mistake, my problem.

After all, step 1 is "Admit you have a problem".

Hi, my name is Bartel, and I have a FFXIV problem.

I'm back to posting way too much on this forum, trying to keep myself occupied with work and what not, and drinking large quantities of booze at home.

Oh, also I'm getting my next tattoo this afternoon, so that is actually very exciting for me!

Is it a ffxiv related tattoo ? If so, please contact your sponsor immediately. If it is not, please share with us what it will be of (if you don't mind).

It's a Gunslinger tattoo from the Stephen King series. Once it's done, I plan on posting pics. I'm very excited, it's been in the making for almost 3 years now.

I find myself at home every night using oil based white markers to paint FF enemy character outlines on a black board, then putting those black boards into a 8X11 picture frame and using marker to color the glass that overlays the board. Makes for a cool effect. So far I have made a river crab (on a beach for some reason), a cactaur, an ahriman, and tonight I am thinking about making one of those fire bomb guys.
