So far I only see three new servers unless I'm mistaken:

Pandaemonium
Famfrit
Lich

I played briefly on Remora. I was a mithra named Summer.

Briefly held a WindurstKnights linkshell on that server, but couldn't spend the time since I was managing a shell full time on Alexander. Great times had on Remora server while it lasted though.

Doesnt matter to me so much, I have 65 or so days of playtime after our free 7 days. So If they don't fix it by then, I'll be gone. Lately I've been spending 2+ hours (no joke I check the time) Pressing "X" on my controller to get in.

What time of day do you usually attempt to get in? For the past 3-4 days, it's only ever taken me maybe 5 minutes to get in on Leviathon. I usually login anywhere from 8am - 5pm CST to start my day, but with the odd 90000 I've had to log in later. I thought it had been getting much better lately.

Can anyone update if the results of the server upgrades were a success? I am still at work and haven't had a chance to check. Also, I had assumed we were getting a free 7 days from all of this server madness, but I just checked mogstation and I am down to 25 days now. It seems no credit has been added and we were in fact charged playtime days over the past week. Any news on this?

5 minutes! Jesus, if only it was that simple I would not complain heh.

But I must admit the 2+ hours has only happened twice. I usually wait at a minimum 30 Minutes though in the morning and but if its anytime past 2pm PST, I'm screwed.

It wouldnt be so bad if everytime I got in a Queue, I got connected. But The other day, I got in a queue TWO TIMES and BOTH TIMES. Got DCed from the dumb 10102 or w/e error during loading.

The 7 days will be added when the Maintenance has concluded. According to their news post.

I actually hope they wouldnt. There's already more people trying to login than we had room for. Lets say we went from 5000 to 7000 (i'm just pulling numbers from air here) and we could just barely fit everyone in now. Why would you want to get the servers in trouble and full again? They never said they were going to add enough room to accommodate for everyone, just that they would increase the capacity a little.

But most importantly. If character creation stays locked, then we're going to have to run out of gilsellers eventually. And that is something i greatly desire.

I get that, but my understanding was they had capped the connections due to the Duty Finder. If the server can handle 5000 connections at once, it stands to reason that there will not be that many all the time. Why would the offer a payment option that lets you have multiple character on a server, or one character on eight servers?

My wife is going to play FFXIV but she's waiting on her new computer, which we'll be picking up in about 2 weeks. It's going to kind of suck if she can't join my server. There's a few legitimate reasons why locking character creation isn't a good idea.

Kind of glad that's all they added to be honest. You start going all Star Wars and ****, then you end up with a crap ton of empty servers come billing time. Then it start the whole MERGE SERVERS! Then servers get merged and you get the, MY SERVER HAS TOO MANY PEOPLE ON IT! As frustrating as all of this is, it's the right decision.

Fixed D:

So I think we only got three new servers, no queue, severe login restrictions continue....severe character creation restrictions continue... I was hoping to wake up to a different environment this morning. Instead we got the same crap.

What severe character creation restrictions?

They unlocked all the servers but three to new characters.

People need to read before they complain.

They may have only added 3 new servers, but one announcement states that they are increasing the max number of concurrent players per World from 5k to 7.5k. That's a 50% increase right there without adding a single new World.

Ultimately, the proof is in the pudding. It will be interesting to see if people can login tonight during NA peak hours, and see how the game performs for those who do get in.

I'll simplify it for you and post the clear changes:

1) Duty finder (cause of most D/C issues and why they implemented login restrictions) used to run on all servers, meaning it could match you with anyone from any server. They have now made 4 groups, in essence dividing the population of players in 4. This theoretically could increase the number of players on each world 4 times. However, that is unlikely and the 50% increase suggested is likely a very conservative increase.

2) They have only added 1 server to each group (NA/EU/JP) AT THIS TIME. They have other servers ready to go. BUT, they'd rather let these new ones fill up and once full release another then have a bunch of new servers half full. Makes sense to me.

All around I think many issues are alleviated (though not entirely solved) but should be gone in a few weeks with the need for the possible add of more servers and further work on the Duty Finder.

I'm confused, how does this not mean they're still going to be implementing severe character creation restrictions. (from your link):

"In order to create a population balance between Worlds, we will continue to be implementing New Character Creation restrictions in overly congested Worlds. "

I guess you're just SOL if you have friends on "overly congested worlds", or don't want to start a character on a server that will be a ghost town in a few months....

I could see this being the case. Nothing has been said about being able to transfer existing characters to the new Worlds. Since playing on a new World requires starting over, they may not be expecting too many players willing to take advantage of the new World.

They would need about 6.25% of the player base (1 in every 16 players) from each existing NA World to be willing to start over to evenly distribute the existing player population across all Worlds. If they had added 3 new Worlds for the NA data center, you would need 16.7%, or 1 in every 6 players. If you don't get enough of players to start over on a new World, then you wind up with underutilized servers that aren't helping anyone.

Note: the math I did is pretty straightforward. The percentage of players you need to start over comes out to 1 - y/(y+z), where y is the number of Worlds before maintenance and z is the number of new Worlds added.

7500 player capacity is still a joke, there will be half the players of XIV not being able to log in still. Its a slap in the face to its customers.
