Lots of reports of servers unfreezing in the last few hours.

I think there are a few reasons, some with more weight than others.

1. Server issues today kicked off lots of afkers
2. Lots of folks doing RL stuff tonight and tomorrow, if not all weekend, for the holiday
3. UGA/Clemson game (I have to miss it Smiley: mad)
4. Friday night date night
5. Alien invasion

What other reasons might some of our peers finally be ******* logging off the game so others can play?

I'm hoping all the people with threats to leave are leaving.

The watchwords this week are "concurrent users." The binging is largely out of the way. As per usual for MMO launches.

Probably because the first 5K able to log on are all AFK and asleep and will resume playing tomorrow, except for the unlucky few who have computer crash or their IP coughs.



You have to be the most miserable person I've ever seen on a forum, especially since we're supposed to be playing a game.

You sat there and hit zero over and over again for hours on end? Alternatively, you're running up against a known wall when you could take one of may alternate solutions. Most everyone else has been able to get online without too much difficulty for at least a couple of days. Apparently the world is against you. Must be tough.

Or he can sit and let the lobby acknowledge that he's waiting, then hit login and get a queue, instead of constantly resetting his way in.

I've gotten in, every night in this system, on Balmung, without fail. By simply letting myself stare at the character screen for a few minutes (while browsing, catching up with people in Mumble.) and attempting intermittently, rather than spamming.

Perhaps there's a zombie outbreak and some of the people went off to take care of it? You know how everyone feels about zombies these days, there's like tons of zombie related movies, games, what-nots lately and they just need to get their quick fix.

I usually work second shift, so my playtime is hardly interfered with the 1017 error. Yet, today, I can't get in. Balmung is more bogged down than usual it seems.

Its a conspiracy. Labor day weekend, servers finally unfreeze. SE looks like a hero for working during holiday in NA ... psh, puh lease, you probably had your intern hit the big green button while you are out Frisbee golfing

I think they're actually worse, I've never had issues logging in at 8am...and today I had to try a few times.

Yeah that was last night, this morning I can't get in either.

Everyone is playing for the Labor Day weekend, it seems. Smiley: frown

What do you mean "unfreezing"?

I'm trying to log in and I'm just getting 1017 and 2002. The usual.

Edit: Oh, it's bumped from last night.

I also noticed that getting on last night was incredibly easy.

Not even going to try again until Monday, most likely. It's college football Saturday!

Sorry, Eorzea... but you come in second to Autzen.

I think the emergency maintenance last night knocked off quite a few AFKers, which proves again if people would stop AFKing, people could get on.

Says everyone that just wants to get on so they can do the same. Oh sorry, they aren't going to afk, they are just going to play for 24 hours straight with minimal breaks, that's different.

I like 5... It would make sense do to all the new recent activity on this forum right?

But honestly, I have not had a single problem getting on. I have said this before the longest I have waited is 23 minutes.

Just now, my sfx dropped (and being an audio guy that drove me nuts) so I totally shut-down the game... re-logged... ended in a queue of 17, spammed it for 3 minutes and was on...

Actively playing with minimal breaks (talking ~30 min or so) is vastly different than AFKing all night while you sleep or while you're at work.

I only get a few hours to play here and there due to life (like most everyone else in game), and AFKers make it a **** of a lot more difficult than it should be. :/ I log off every time, and maybe that just makes me stupid, but at least I don't feel like a gigantic prat.
