It is with great pleasure that we announce the commencement of service for FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, on Windows PC and PlayStation®3.

The realm of Eorzea has been reborn in every sense of the word, featuring a new and improved graphics engine, vast and breathtaking areas, a captivating FINAL FANTASY story, a comprehensive character creator, a sleek interface, and fast-paced combat.

With an overwhelming number of participants during the alpha and beta test phases, player feedback played a significant role in shaping the game. We can confidently say we created the latest FINAL FANTASY title together with our fans.

As we continue creating new stories and adventures in the years ahead, we pledge to spare no effort to ensure that Eorzea will always be a place that our players are proud to call home.

Starting early is probably the best strategy by far to curb the flood of new users into a steady stream.

Assuming anyone can even log in, at least.

1017 again for me..

You know they are going to randomly have to pick people to leave the worlds to new servers.
This cant go on... wait till they do that and part of the ls has to leave, it is going to get hot in here,,,
Official launch and every problem is still here now what excuses can people come up with now for SE..

Funny part, my buddy just downloaded, made his character on Balmung...and logged in 2nd try. He's already impressed compared to 1.0...there's absolutely no rhyme or reason to getting on beyond dumb luck.

The NA/EU release is going to resemble a dumpster fire if they don't get their crap together real soon.

The guy from game stop called me to say they are having a midnight launch for FFXIV and madden I believe was the other game. I told him why would I rush in since the servers are full. He said almost half the people cancelled their preorders he thinks allot did in for the early access codes and cancelled. I told him what happened and he said well that explains it.. We have allot of gamestops around here so it probably don't have a ton of orders to begin with.

It's not. It's currently the 27th in Japan. Launch day. Worldwide launch.

When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.

This game is like playing a slot machine you just hope you can hit the jackpot.

Hmmm, curious why they don't just have log in queues instead of making us try to log in each time? That way I could not only see how many people are ahead of me, but I wouldn't have to spam the log in button.

There are queues, they're just getting hit too hard by people attacking the login button. I got a 40 person queue 20 mins ago, went quick.

I think what's making things worse, is once you're in, the game is great with few bugs. So ya, beyond annoying if you like the game.
