What SE needs to do is shut down the game apologize to the public, and push the launch to another time once they figured what the hell they are doing. SE is being like a shady weird girl friend saying issues are fixed when they really aren't. This is like scheduling a date with a girl going to the restaurant and she never shows up. She calls you later and says there was an emergency. So you plan to meet up again, and what do you know? SHE NEVER COMES. SE needs to stop dissapointing their players. SET a date and stand by it.
Hey that's a good Q .... Does everyone get the 30 days free when they purchase the game or is SE so bloody tight that they make you pay for every SE nod and turn the servers off forFree periods (like Beta and EA)?
The reason i'm asking is because if someone can go out and order it on the 27th and still get free play time, then it kind of defeats the purpose of SE giving those of us that PAID for EA (not legacy) free play time. Just asking.
Anybody who pre-ordered ARR, doesn't matter what version (normal or Digital CE) will get: Cait Sith pet and Mog Hat AND be able to play these few (Friday is when it started?) days before ACTUAL launch for free.
Come Tuesday is when you will have to register your game. I will get an email from Amazon for my keys.. You will also need to create a payment plan. Once you do this, from my understandings, you will get 30days for free. Once the game has been register is when you will get your pre-order items. If you bought a Digital CE (or physical), you will be able to claim them on Tuesday as well. ATM No one has any of the perks from pre-order other than being in Early Access.
It's going to take a lot of trust for most people to setup a payment plan on Tuesday if they can't even log in to play the game... or stay logged in, or zone into... anywhere. I know I am in no hurry to commit my money to them at this point.
I'm also not even clear why we all expect a new big rush of players on Tuesday. If someone wanted to buy the game, why would they wait until Tuesday (aside from the obvious - that the game isn't actually working currently).
what would you guys like to see if Square decided to make up for all of these issues?
I'd be satisfied if they could just get the ******* game I've been waiting 4 years to play to actually work. I don't want a theoretical rainbow chocobo or a potential christmas tree for my room in the inn. I just want to play the ******* game already...
You can always take a screen shot of the 1017 error and set it to your desktop background, its like playing FFXIV from work
