TLDR: wait for an email before registering your code.

If you've been taking it in the rear for decades you're really only doing it at this point because you enjoy it.

What are you going to do when you actually get legitimately screwed over in life, ie not just a video game company not doing what you wanted them to do? I'm guessing it won't be pretty.

That's a good idea.

Wait your turn people. Regardless, you have until December of this year to input the codes. It's not like you won't have a million other mounts and minions to hang out with. For real, 90% of you are going to pay the 90day sub and use the eye over the tiger anyway.

Is there some early, early access that you get access to for registering your code early? No one can get access until the 24th anyway, what's the rush?

It'd be nice to register early so the sh*t doesn't hit the fan again when everybody and their mom try to register at the same time.

No one told you?!

Oh wait. I'm not supposed to tell you!

In seriousness, I agree. My desire to just have it over with notwithstanding, still plenty of time.

Well yeah, get it out of the way... I get it. I'll have you know that I'm quite the expert on the sky falling though. I see no cause for concern here Smiley: sly

Maybe it's time to get that rumor started again, that there are limited spots for early play. The servers will burn Smiley: sly

Better yet, an official "Darth Clark" day. A monster forum like this with a day's worth of semi-believable threads of nonsense. That would be good times.

Well if you recall the issue some people had with getting into Phase 2 I think people are justified in being worried and trying to get their codes in now.

No Darth Clarke references here Shinda. I'm sure you've seen the hate-filled letters they post the next month. I can already imagine the pages and pages of rage that would ensue. Please wait until I've received my flame-resistant gear in FFXIV at least. Smiley: lol

Square Enix is the best company ever. They know what is best. They provide me with the sweet nectar of life. They can do no wrong. All hail Yoshi-P and his Flawless execution of the open beta. Waiting until the last minute for everything cannot possibly cause any issues. Waiting till the last minute provides plenty of time to fix major issues. The Servers are fine. I like being unable to play the game. I enjoy being kept in the dark about major issues until after they are resolved days later. I love this cardboard armor that I spray painted White that I wear at all times. All hail the hypnotoad.

So is this supposed to be a parody of those White Knights in the beta forums?

I'm not sure why they turned the site on if they aren't ready to let people pre-reg. I guess infinite wisdom isn't my forte.

I was just hoping to pre-register as soon as possible so I'm not sweating it at the wire. Inevitably there will be other roadblocks to getting up and running and I'm trying to be proactive.

We have temporarily suspended the ability to redeem codes on the pre-order site while we continue to investigate the ongoing issues. As soon as we have more information to share, we’ll be sure to provide you with an update.

At this point I can't say I'm suprised... At least they are keeping us updated this time though.

I'm getting Error 3 every time i attempt to register.. man if they can't even handle the simple one time task of registration I can't imagine what the actual Early Access and Launch will be like. There is no one up right now in NA and we still can't get through.

Side note, don't have legitimate concerns lest you be ostracized. Wasn't there a rather vocal group of people that screamed everything will be OK at the 1.0 launch? Does anyone know how that ended up? Man I wish I didn't want to play this game so badly.

Sweating it at the wire.. that should be the new SE slogan.
