What do I think SE's going to go through tomorrow?



Seriously, if SE doesn't pull a rabbit out of the hat tonight, then it's going to be a PR bloodbath tomorrow.

I hope they don't expect us to set up a subscription when we cannot even play reliably without leaving our computers on 24/7 to ensure we stay logged in.

my thoughts exactly, I was gonna subscribe for 180 days....but now im not sure...ill wait until the 30 free days are over

If this carries over beyond tonight (and it certainly will), then SE will strongly need to consider postponing the start of subscriptions until this is fixed. You can't expect people to pay subscriptions for services they're unable to use.

Yeah I love this game but I think I'm gonna ignore it for a month. A game I can't even get into just isn't worth it.

I guess I'm torn right now. I love the game. I love the community. But i feel like I'm being taken. I dropped $80 or so on the PS3 CE version of a game I can't play. If this were any other PS3 game I would have already returned it. I know this is a "long haul" situation but I'm just wondering if his company is deserving of my dollars any more. I just don't understand how they have the cajones to put a big announcement out about official release with so few people able to enjoy it.

I guess it boils down to the fact that I'm really disappointed. I wonder if this the last straw for me...

The no queue is annoying, I agree. But I get why they're doing it. Today at least I'm not receiving errors, just world full. I'm just waiting for that time 2-4 weeks from now when it settles down. Half of me wants them to open more servers (just a couple). The other half of me remembers what SWTOR looked like 3 months after release.

The fact that they haven't added anymore servers yet is troubling do they expect the problem to just go away?

I thought the first month was going to be free to those who purchased the game that is, just like FFXI?
30 day trial.

A feeling they're gonna be? Have you seen 3/4s of threads here and on the official forums? It started...3 days ago.

I've wondered about that as well. Makes me think they are very leery of having to merge later. With all the attendant coverage and accusations that will entail.

Exactly, and "play on a less populated realm" is not valid. I switched from Leviathan my intended realm in order to play with my friend who managed to join the only available realm of Diabolos. I'm not starting over a third time because Square Enix cannot get their servers under control. Limiting log in access to ensure that players logged in have a good experience is a poor business move. They are hoping a lot of people quit so they don't have to support that large of a population I guess. I've been ranting the last 2 days, but this is just ridiculous. I would rather be in a queue with 2000 players or more and know for a fact I can tab out and watch some Breaking Bad while my queue ticks down. Instead, I get to hit Start -> Enter World -> 1017 Error -> Start -> Etc.

Edit: I would like to add that I feel Square Enix is perfectly okay with this limiting log ins as it doesn't look like they are in a hurry to remedy the solution. We have received an apology, but talk is not sufficient at this stage, the game is not fairing so well which is sad because the game-play is amazing, the servers are terrible and that is what players will remember. I don't blame those who stay logged in, I would too if I could get on...

Tomorrow will be the same as today. They've given no indication that they'll stop limiting access to the servers so we'll just have everyone from EA trying to get in along with anyone else unfortunate enough to start tomorrow. Personally, I'm going to avoid another day of login lottery and stick with the JP servers for the time being.

Time to hold Square accountable. Hopefully they get their sh*t working and we can praise them!


Do you truly and honestly believe that complaints on the ZAM forums are even gonna come close to reaching the eyes and ears of SE? If you do, you'd be dead wrong. The people here are talking amongst each other, not to SE.

Holding them accountable, complaining about their service, and just outright tearing them a new one, isn't going to solve anything. SE is going to do, what SE is going to do. Your opinion, my opinion, or anyone else's opinion, isn't going to change whatever agenda they have planned.

You're only wasting your breath on here throwing all your negativity around. The only thing you're accomplishing is getting downvoted to oblivion by the people that don't want to see it.

Yep this sucks for us but especially for SE. ARR has really been a turnaround from 1.0 and had (still does, for now) great potential to be MMO comeback of the decade, never done before. In beta, most of us were sold and impressed and ordered our preorders. We were excited, hyped, and got up in the middle of the night for early release. Its all turned into a train wreck though. If you play in primetime evenings, you can't get in. At all, unless its luck. A lot of us will stick with it, but many won't. I'll be here, but I want to see lively servers and community. Not dying servers and angry players.

I think people may want to consider rolling on a JP server if they haven't already made a lot of progress

Can always server transfer later if they get their crap together

The very message of error 1017 is ridiculous - because we know exactly when it won't be full and can join instantaneously. Also, I love it when you make it into a queue and then still get 1017 when it's about to launch.

I forgot the cardinal rule of FFXIV: Once you get in, never log out.

Here are my thoughts:

F___ YOU SE

Thanks asking and letting me state my opinion. Im not going to throw my entire reasoning behind my clear frustration, its been covered pretty well elsewhere.

For the record, Ive been very patient, but I am out of patience. Didnt care about phase 4 problems, and gave the benefit of the doubt. But after pre ordering for me, my wife and a friend, Im pretty disappointed none of us can actually play together properly.

While the restrictions are annoying, I'd rather have a long log in time than random 90000, 10102, and 3102 errors during duty, zone transition, etc. They must really think there will be a substantial drop off in simultaneous connections in the first few weeks. That or they're really scared of server merges in the short term.

Posts about how messed up SE has made this launch were getting bombed to default almost instantly yesterday. I am seeing them all rated to Good today. 1 day and everyone has lost their patience. I guess though I am in the same boat. 1017 for 2 days straight is pretty frustrating. This is going to be a rough week for SE

I live in North America - do not have early access- and I have been playing.

Also why would they announce a JP only launch in English?

I don't have early access and I've been able to log in since ~3 pm west coast time. 'Course, I got hit by the wrath of the 1017 and after being beat mercilessly for a few hours, I got a good 30 minutes of play time.

If they don't we won't have to worry much longer about login issues, people will just decide they dropped cash on a worthless game again. I'm not setting my sub until the last possible moment and/or i've confirmation that i'll actually be able to reliably play when and where I want to, without being told I can't use a service i've paid for. Not trying to be a negative nancy, just stating what most of us feel about the situation.
