No reason? It's the official launch event.

same thing, me and the better-half feel bad for him because we know that the problems this time around are a tech issue and really have nothing to do w/ him directly. He has done an amazing job from 1.0 to 2.0. People seem to forget that 1.0 was a bit of a bomb, not due to tech issues really but the over all game was bad, no offense. But, for 2.0, the game itself is amazing, assuming you can get past the tech issues blocking it. I hope they sub this video so we can understand what he is saying. Me and the better-half have stuck it out this long, waiting a little longer won't kill us.

Wow, I feel terrible for Yoshi. You can tell he's poured every ounce of himself into this game, and to have this happen just stinks. Cheer up Yoshi, there are still TONS of players in-game every time I get to log in, so you've obviously done something right. Iron out these server issues and everything will be fine.

Say what you want about the release, this guy is pretty interesting. It was a huge risk taking on this project (especially with all the scrutiny and volatility that comes along with the MMO community).

The game itself is sick. It's just the technical stuff that is causing the issue. All of those things are correctable. Once things iron themselves out, the game will be a hit.

I can respect a man that cares so deeply for his work that he takes successes and failures personally.

No worries! He basically broke out in tears because of the stress finally taken from his shoulders.
He is not that upset by the launch difficulties, hahahahaha!!!

Smiley: lolSmiley: laughSmiley: lol

After turning back to the audience, he explicitly thanks his whole developer team for the stunning
remake they managed to deliver in about 2 and a half years, while a new MMO usually is in the
making for 5 years minimum.

Yeah, I left 1.0 because it wasn't fun to play...ARR so far is an amazing game play experience. I get super frustrated when I can't log into the game, but I'm not going to quit over it. I know things will calm down in the coming weeks and we'll have no problems playing. Yoshi did a great job and I'm happy he's taking it hard....because it means for great things in the future.

The guy must be exhausted. I don't think this post was intended to be malicious. I for one love the game and give huge props to the man on-stage... For he actually gives a ****.... Onto the day... Hope ya'll have an amazing one... in-game or out! Peace.

We are talking about one mans labor of love for the last 2+ years. He has delivered a game that will single handed turn around SE's balance sheet. I can understand his frustration at the situation. I would probably cry too. The game IS awesome despite the technical difficulties. The story is amazing and I have already lost countless hours of sleep and plan to lose many more over the next year.

Once again, guys, no worries! He said the launch was not as smooth as expected, but that part
covers only the first 10% of the speech.
The rest is thanking his staff and the players, thinking
about how to make sure players will recognize the game as being "worth the whole trouble",
and a lot of stress that almost visibly shatters on the stage.

P.S.:
Additional servers will go online at the beginning of next week. They were really overwhelmed by
their own success, apparently, and didn't imagine such a vast influx of new players and returnees alike.

I highly doubt lots of people on this forum have ever been under as much pressure as Yoshi. He deserves immense amounts of respect and is very talented.


He seems to actually care. Compare this to Producers/publishers such as Gamerforge who continued milk games until the server closes and then move onto the next money maker (Currently its Tera, which is going down the pan fast and wont be around long).

Most people would hide behind their employees and throw the blame around, but Yoshi has the balls to come out and address people in person. This is amazing.

The passion is there, and this is very rare for a corporation.

I don't know if he's crying about the server issues or not, but you can tell that he's definitely passionate about his work. As long as Yoshi continues to care, the game has a bright future. Once they level out the server issues, this game is going to explode in popularity, I don't doubt that one bit. It already has, honestly.

Just get the servers running smoothly and I'll throw my money at SE.

Just outta curiosity, how did you know he's apologizing for servers. Regardless, I've said before and I'll say again.... he's done an amazing job. He broke his *** getting XIV to the point it's at today and SE had better realize what they've got; not just in Yoshi, but everyone who worked on this.

Except whoever made the decision about servers. He or she should be flailed wildly about the head and shoulders with a smelly, wet fish.

I think they have all done very well considering. The software designers in Japan did great work, it was the network specialists in Canada that messed up.

Same here. I don't think we were wrong to get annoyed, but it doesn't defeat the fact that the game has come a long way and they've really engaged the community and allowed us to have a hand in its improvement.

If a month from now things are running smoothly, that will reflect even more positively on this game, Yoshi, and his staff.

This seems like the most likely scenario imo.

He could have never anticipated so much people being so heavily interested in this game. Yes, they need to implement servers, yes, the initial hiccups and lock-downs will leave a bad taste in some people's mouths. But the game... it's impressive. The task done is monumental and unprecedented.

I feel sorry for his grief and further angered still by the poor conduct (note, not the frustration) of the NA/EU regarding this issue. The video shows without a doubt that this man has poured his heart and soul into this game, and it reflects in the game itself. Servers are just pieces of technology that can be broken and fixed. An experience like the one the development team headed by Yoshi P has given is priceless.

This time of difficulty will pass, and the game will thrive onward. Those who admonish the login difficulties will be more than welcome to return when they are addressed. The game is worth it, in my view, and my experiences within thus far have proven it to me.

All I did was link the video. I thought you guys would want to see. What's so bad about that?

I think it's nice that he's showing that much emotion. I think it shows that he really cares about his game.
