Because I've been locked out of the game for 6 hours...
Ok, putting the subject and my distaste for your trends aside for a moment.
This actually concerns me. I got home from work, I attempted to log in, and within an hour, I was in.
If you've been trying to log in consistently, you should have been in by now. I have to wonder why my circumstances are different from yours in this case. To be perfectly clear, I've been paitently, but persistently attempting to get in every night, and I have been successful every night.
When I'm done. I log out, and attempt again the next night.
What region are you trying from, and how are you attempting to get in?
I'm trying to determine if this is a method issue or a ping issue. If it's not a ping issue, then we may be able to help people who've not gotten in easily get some playtime.
On the subject -
I want Ishgard. If Fencer/Red Mage is not released by then, it's the perfect place for it to happen as the city has a very similar to San'doria from FFXI in some regards, which was where a lot of the Red Mage context and lore came from to being with for that game - so the themes seem to fit well together.
Beyond that, no requests, no expectations. I want to experience what I have here first before formulating an opinion on what path the future of the game should take.
