Blog #58 A Loss Of Respect To Square Enix

Note: There will be some strong opinions, and hate in this post. Language will be used.

With that being said, let me begin with a short story about how this went down. I have been happily playing this game, since the launch of it, logging in every day for multiple hours. Enjoying about every single moment of the game. I was emailed by Square Enix, that my account was "used" and I should change my password, well, I was forced to change my password, so I did, with ease. I didn't mind changing my password, I want my account safe right? Right. So, I did that, and played happily after that, but one morning, I wake up and check my email. My account has been terminated due to a violation of terms of service. I never bought gold, I never multi boxed, I never did anything against the ToS. I'm a legal guy through and through. Nothing I did, would have affected their ToS. Me being me, I was pissed beyond belief. I was flipping out, trying to look into different reasons, googling, and it has happened to other people. Fuck me right? I emailed, and even tried calling Square Enix, and was on hold for about thirty minutes, before I gave up. I am still awaiting a response from Square Enix support, about how this happened. I was warned that I cannot make another account, and if I do, that account will be banned as well. So, i'm building more and more rage as time goes by. I enjoy this game, A LOT. My account is clean, and nothing I have done has done anything against their ToS. I am officially an angry customer, this has never happened to me. I haven't been playing anything else, since this happened. I am really sad and pissed off this happened. I hope I can get this resolved, and HOPEFULLY play the game again. If not, I will lose all the respect I have for Square Enix. A little overboard? Probably, yes, but This is how mad I really am...

Oh boy, oh boy, it' been an amazing week for gaming. FINALLY, Square Enix has fixed their servers, and we are logging in without issues. Their are still restrictions on some servers that characters cannot be made on certain servers, but they change in time. Luckily, I was able to make my character on the server I am on! (Behemoth). Let me tell you something, I am addicted to this game, more than ever. The questing, the animations, and the music is so amazing. Usually, I listen to my music while I game, but this game... I love how the music changes, and it's just so beautiful. The scenery is amazing as well, it really is breathtaking. Of course, I love the game play, and the combat system. It's overall a very polished game, I think. Sure, the server problem was a huge setback, but as they promised, they have fixed it, and we are able to login and play, and to me, that's what is important. Digital sales, are still down I believe, Amazon had a quick run at it, but it didn't last long. Like I said in my last post, I got the last physical copy in my area, which I am sooo thankful for.

There is no date when they will make digital sales available again, but keep trying your local stores if you are interested in the game. The community in this game, well at least on my server is very welcoming, and extremely nice. I actually WANT to log on and play because of how nice people are. My FC, which is basically a guild for people who don't know. FC= Free Company, are extremely nice people, and even random people are very helpful. Dungeons are actually fun, and crafting does not feel like a chore, or a job within the game. My craft actually helps my class make weapons, and armor, which is very helpful, and it does not bore me to craft, isn't that awesome? I'm saying all these nice things of the game, because it is truly wonderful. I have yet to come to one thing were I am like, this is stupid, and it shouldn't be in the game. It's been an amazing journey so far, and I cannot wait to play more, and more. 

People are still debating whether or not the game should have been free to play or not, I think this game is worth the sub. It's polished, and it really brings that Final Fantasy feeling. I am going to pay the monthly sub, because I think this game is actually worth the sub. I don't think it should be free to play in all honesty, and I have played many F2P mmo's in my day, and I'm glad for once, I am subbing to a game. I am not looking to cause a huge debate in all of this, these are just my opinions on it. I think it's worth the sub, and I am going to be playing this game for a long time, I promise you that.

I've been playing Final Fantasy games since I was born, all of them, and this game really brings the feeling you get when you play one of them. You can delve into the story lines, and fall in love with some of the people you meet along the way. You get interested in what is going on. I've found myself reading a lot of the quest texts to know what is going on, and I never read the quest texts. I am truly involved with the universe this game brings, and I really like exploring in the game. The game is truly beautiful.

I play on the Behemoth server, and if you are on that server, my IGN is Jace Beleren, hit me up sometime! Cheers mates!

Blog #56 The FFXIV Effect

What a week it has been. I've upgraded my computer, got my gaming gear, and I'm all set for "next gen" gaming. I pre-ordered FFXIV, and due to SE's server problems, and etc, I have gotten to play but a little bit, but what I have played... I had been amazed how much it actually is. I've been playing Final Fantasy's since I was born basically. A lot of people are upset about the server issues, but I am remaining calm about the situation, and they will resolve the issues soon, since they are doing a world wide maintenance, people are still complaining because it's during prime time, but hell... If it fixes the servers i'm all for it. Despite all of the errors and issues, the game is in fact a really, really good game. I love the atmosphere the game brings, and the world is truly beautiful. I played about 10 hours straight when I was first able to logon, it was truly addictive. SE has made a very beautiful world, and it is extremely polished. I cannot wait until the servers are fixed, and I can play more and more. I have faith. 

Most people are complaining, and wanting refunds, but... They are giving us a 7 day trial extension, they are doing their best, and they are giving us some reward for being patient with them. Yes, the situation is bad, but c'mon... I'm not asking for a refund, because the game is actually really good. Server sucks, and the launch went terribly, but a lot of mmo launches have had issues. This isn't the first game to have major launch issues, believe it or not. I'm not saying cut them some slack, but raging, and asking for refunds isn't going to solve the situation any faster. I applaud the people who are being patient and understand SE is having some major issues. It will be fixed, and we will be able to play as long as we want soon enough. I bought the last physical copy in my area. Literally, the last copy in my area.

Digital sales were halted because of the situation, but Amazon has lifted that, and digital purchases are now available again. I installed, and updated, and the servers were having issues. Was I mad? No, frustrated yeah, because I just got everything ready for it haha, but you know I took it in stride, and eventually I was able to make a character, and play the game. I felt like a found a new home when I got inside the game and played it. I will defiantly be playing this game for a long, long time.  I have high hopes for this game, and I hope SE can deliver promising updates, and get the server problems fixed ASAP. I play on the Behemoth server, and my IGN is Jace Beleren. Feel free to hit me up, and we can level, or just chat it up! Cheers!
