ok what i think you should do is go make an MMO, set up all the servers yourself, and if i even get 1 frame less than 60fps, i'm going to go take a dump all over your forums.

Everything is working fine for me. Seems like a pretty smooth launch pre launch so far. I realize people are having problems, but we all expected that. To get bent out of shape would imply that you are surprised by any errors that are occurring. I have not heard one peep about error 3102 popping up, and the recent error 90k are from the forced boot to due emergency maintenance. So far so good as far as I'm concerned. Smiley: nod

I agree that things are going great. I have been through many, many launches and SE is addressing things IMMEDIATELY. I have been in situations where things were not addressed for hours. They are really impressive this go around. I wish everyone could see that, but it'll all iron out eventually. :)

I actually had zero problems on the new char I made on Ultros today. Aside from trying to take on level 4s as a level 3 ARC and forgetting to keybind my potions and dying. But that was my fault, not the game's fault.

Honestly this has gone pretty smoothly overall. Diablo 3 launch was DREADFUL for a whole week, from minute 1 onward people had so many issues. Had to be one of worst launches to date. This is nothing compared to D3...to even bring up D3 in comparison to this is really reaching for attention. Why you're attempting to make FFXIV launch seem ridiculously bad I have no clue...but its sad. You have my sympathy.

Things have been smooth as silk for me so far. The game has been running great, and I've had no connectivity issues, either. Well, I never did from Alpha through all the betas, as well, but that's beside the point. I just think Square-Enix has been doing an admirable job so far.

Eh, I have to go to work anyway.

For the record, I'm not only fine with the fact that SE is taking down servers to fix a crippling bug, I'm delighted that they did it so quickly.

Also.. Diablo 3? What? No Simcity?

They could do 3 hours of maintenance now when something was fundamentally broken and give us a full afternoon and evening of play. ooooor they could wait until midnight and everyone has to spend their Saturday playing a broken game.

No brainer. Fix the big problem now, rather than later.

Honestly, this is a reversal from their Beta Test problem, where everyone criticized them for waiting until it was almost over, then only extending the beta in NA during off-prime hours.

Yet, here he is, complaining again.

Yeah, it's not like every MMO launch ever (unless you are Rift) has had problems like this.

Also who paid extra for early access? It's a pre-order bonus, pre-orders don't also cost extra.

Any non-legacy 1.0 players who already had basic access to the game on the 27th may have paid extra and pre-ordered an ARR copy just for early access and the items. Or bought the access code from someone.

In fact, I preordered mine from GMG and got 25% off the price. CE (digital) for $37.50. I think Regular was only $22.50 or so.

Hey, here's a better question!
What do you think the Alla Admins should with Killua125
1 week mute so he can watch the forums and learn something:5 (13.2%)
1 month mute so that the forums are not filled with his posts:5 (13.2%)
1 month ban, just so we don't have to deal with him:3 (7.9%)
PERMABAN:25 (65.8%)
Total:38

I say this with complete objectivity, as I could not possibly care less about your highly overstated grievences. But dear god, man. Gather what little self-respect you can find and just leave the forums. You are obviously universally detested here. You aren't being bullied. You are being called out for ridiculous overreactions to minor expected problems. I cannot imagine how earthshattering it is for you when you have to deal with big issues. You are only begging for criticism at this point.

I am not asking for a permaban, it's just one of the four options.

If I were an admin, you'd be muted for at least a week, and told to either post in other threads or stop with the trolling, or I'd nail you for longer. Look back at your post history.

Technically your threads break Rule VII, section A of the Zam Terms of Services about spam, since they're almost all just a thread title and "What do you guys think." If an admin were getting tired of your antics, they'd be perfectly justified citing that part.

Your posts, they are like visual trash on the forums.

OK, so you seriously want me to tear your post into itty bitty tiny pieces? Well, considering the news I just got, venting some rage might help with that. Also note, rage is not with you, it's at life and the world, I'll just channel it to char your *** to a blackened crisp.

Title: Diablo III all over again?

Alright, let's do a basic google search on the Diablo III launch, shall we?

First, Diablo was always an offline and online game. It had it's offline component and then Battle.net. For the first two games, you could play offline, no issues. Diablo III mandated online play. This means, first of all, it was a fundamental change to the game. MMOs are, by their nature, normally ALWAYS ONLINE ONLY. So first, the basic issue already not the same (tons of nerd rage based on a crucial game-changing element).

Second, the login issues happened for DAYS. As in MORE THAN ONE DAY. As in MORE THAN AT THE DATE OF LAUNCH. As in A TOTALLY USELESS SINGLE AND MULTIPLAYER GAME. FFXIV hasn't even LAUNCHED. This is EARLY ACCESS. Likely they knew it would be hairy and wanted to test with a small group. And again, it has been online FOR NOT EVEN A FULL DAY!! It has no single-player game that is LOCKED due to a SERVER ISSUE!!!

Now, let's move onto the massive thesis of your amazing content for this website's forum:

That's it?

That's all ya got?
Two lines.

Two.

Not a comparative article detailing why you find similarities. Just "people had issues, what y'all think?"

We think you are wasting everyone's time. You are trolling. This entire thread, flamebait. You are exaggerating, as always, Mr. 2001 graphics. You overdramatize so much, you should @#%^ing go play soccer. Seriously, get some work in daytime soap. Oh wait, those are going off the air. Why? Because people HATE @#%^ING POINTLESS MELODRAMA! Your threads are GARBAGE! USELESS! POINTLESS! VALUELESS!!

So THAT'S why I'd mute your ***. You're an annoyance! You hide behind the ToS but guess what, this is private property, ***** and the admins can do as they please. And I am just doing what is on everyone's minds, seeing if a lot of people are sick of your bullsh*t!

Ok, this is probably my only negitive post, don't kill me for it. I love everything about FFXIV, and I fully understand that there are going to be problems. Open beta and most of this morning have gone smoothly for me, but now i can't get on and it suuuuucks. This is not me trolling or asking for a boycott of FFXIV, still love it, just saying, when it's your account that get fubar'd and you can't make use of the 'early access' it kinda sucks. So, to a degree i understand peoples frustration, Ok, i'm done, back to trying to log my character in.

I got 90ked during my first Sastasha run since the EA started. THEN I got 3102ed for trying to log on too quickly again.

You know what I did? I laughed at it and tried logging in again. I got in, I resumed playing. I got through one run of Stashtasha and one Run of Tamtara before I had to go to work.

And now I'm probably going to take a nap before playing again seeming they're about to do maintenance and I be tired from a 9 hour work shift.

None of that involved incessant complaining, even if I was annoyed.

Ya guys are too **** uptight!

It's pretty crazy... feels like WAY more people than I remember in any recent launches such as TOR and WAR (whether it is or not I dunno, but there are swarms of people in almost every area in all 3 cities.

This game broke records in its beta. It's not surprising to see the trend continue. It's got more steam than anything SE has produced in a long time.
