Sorry to hear you are having so many problems, I haven`t had any issues except for trying to launch the instance for around level 8.  But this probably is due to the fact that I, at anytime, don`t expect to sit at my computer 24/7 to play a game.  So despite the odd downtime that I have heard of, I have been able to play every time I logged on.  So from my perspective, its been a good launch.  Maybe you should go out for some air.

Fail launch because of too many people.  Hmm...sounds like another game, heck a few games back in 2004 that had the same issue and one of those rules the MMO world still. 

Yeah, the solo instance errors are annoying, but I'm still able to play and do other stuff in the meantime and the game is SO good that, just like those other MMOs in the past, I'm able to look past it and know it will be fixed and that in a month or so all of these issues will be forgotten.

Still the best MMORPG I've played since 2006.  I just wish Trion wouldn't hoard their server tech, because that's what needed in ALL MMORPGs anymore so issues of overpopulation won't crash certain aspects of the game.

Well seems to me like another failed mmo release.

Servers are down half the time either for maintenance or just not letting people in with multitude of error messages.

 

I've been trying to play since yesterday, but there is constant stream of problems preventing me from even creating a character. At the moment it's all European servers being "full" and not letting me make any new character there. I had to go and create one on NA server just to post on the official forum as the site tells me to pick a main character before being able to post. And even that probably at some poor bloke's expense since he will have to go to different server due to this one being 1 less character away from being full.

 

Last major BS release, that i remember, was WoW with servers being down half the time. I didn't have such problems even with Diablo 3.

I won't say i expected there won't be any problems. I mean last flawless release i remember in the mmorpg scene was Lineage 2 and that was ages ago...  But on this scale?

I know a lot of people specifically made some room in their schedule just to play the damn thing and not look at error 9000 or 10120 or whatever number pops up next to error message.  And then there is/was the problem with ps3 CE keys on PSN.

You would think that big companies would learn something from each other... And with so much riding on this game for SE (at least from the words of developers) man i don't know...

I hate to tell you this, but you are in the minority, along with all the people crying on forums about some maintence. I've had no issues with any part of the release.  No errors, no black screens, no creation issues, nothing. The majority are in the same boat as me. The only difference is the majority plans on playing the game, and not sitting on a forum bashing a game after one day of early access. If you cannot handle server maintence on a brand new release, then you should wait it out until a week or so after launch. You'll find you wont be as stressed over such a small thing. :)

Sadly i will have to disappoint you on quite a few things :)

  • First i am not stressed about this really, since i expected there to be problems, just not on this scale.
  • Second is "surprise" i kinda plan on playing too... you know i kinda even pre-ordered it?
Also i bash things where bashing is due...
 
And you can't possibly know the whole scope of the problems (unless you work for SE) so do not even start spewing nonsense and posing it as fact. And since when did you became a representative of so called "majority"? :)

It is funny how you tell me I cannot possibly know the whole scope, yet you presume to. It's also funny how you feel the need to talk for everyone else. If you cannot handle 1-2 days of inconsistant server stability, then you need to rethink your priorities. I really don't understand what happened to this generation of gamers. It's embarassing.. If this is still happening by the 27th, I would be complaining too. For right now, why don't you sit back, relax and live your life. The world is not going to end if you are not able to get in on day one.

I'd troll you a bit on the part that "world isn't going to end", but i'll agree with you on that one. So far i have found other things to do.

Also this is more about bad releases being a "norm" topic rather than about me whining or not. The fact is me and not-a-small-number-of-other-people, judging by posts on official forum support, have problems with "release".

I'll be actually really pissed if problems continue on next weekend, as i probably won't be playing that much during the week.

it was a mixed bag for me. At least two 2.5 hr. emergency breaks unless there was another after I went to sleep. I was able to level a conjuror to level 10, however. For Day1, I'm not upset about this and kind of expected it.

I'd say it wasn't too bad. A few hiccups, but i still got to play my ass off. I expected worse, especially since they had a big patch right before launch. that can create stability issues even with long established games.

Complete fail, why? Cause same problems that happened during last beta 4 are going on now showing that the devs either don't care or they don't know what they're doing.  If you've seen Kill Bill and remember what Pai Mei said about Japanese, I see why he said that.

The only issue I am having, or was having, is the dungeon issue. It's a bit of a big issue because it stops your main quest line early, but I just ran around and did fates / levequests..

Definately a bad early access launch for sure. Denying players the ability to enter instead of queuing them up (anyone who doesnt want a queue doesnt understand how this stuff works), screwing customers over by not giving them what was promised, allowing beta characters to remain on servers therefore using up slots that could be used for new players and instead will be used up for people that probably wont even play, it sone of the worst ive seen.

 

I originally bought FF14 shortly after it came out, paid for the collectors edition, and got maybe one month of playtime out of it before they shut the entire game down, then when they bring it back they give me access to all 3 of the 4 beta phases, but not the 4th as I was not allowed to download the beta client. Theoretically my beta code is valid for early access, when I try to redeem it it says that its already registered, yet when I try to login to FF14 it keeps saying no valid service accounts found. Then, I cannot access the lodestone website for more info as you need to have a character created to use it! that is so ridculous that any thoughts of me buying this game have now gone out the window.

 

How Square Enix thinks it can successfully push out a game like this by fucking over its customers is beyond me. Then again, we seem to live in a world where people are so stupid that they will take this kind of treatment, smile, and say well, it could be worse.

get it in your Heads People.

1. This is not a Launch this is " early Access "

2. Early Access in general  has only one purpose " Stressing the Game, Network and Servers out for Max "

 

If you really think buying early Access means to get you an advantage I must dissapoint you.

Game has been solid and fun for me thus far outside of the servers being offline on and off.

Momo sucks, I have proof.

You realize that the beta where they didn't wipe the characters was open, and free, so anyone could have signed up, made a character to save the name or whatever.

Also, you only got access to the game, if you were a legacy player from FF14 1.0

No complaints here the game is excellent. Been really smooth for me outside any downtime. Playing on two machines atm, one new high end box and also on an old ancient POS and both run fine. Hopfully your problems will be fixed by LAUNCH on the 27th.

This is launch. Pre-launch that is. A.k.a. early access a.k.a. head start. Official launch is on the 27th.

2. Early Access in general  has only one purpose " Stressing the Game, Network and Servers out for Max " 

Those are beta phases you're talking about.

This is exactly what the devs promised. It's even on our pre-order confirmation e-mails... It is in the definition itself! And the purpose of it is to cushion the official launch so it goes smoother. How so smoother? The people who got a head start would have already left the lower level areas. Meaning the starting areas aren't as congested when the rest of the players charge into the world.

But since it has gone pretty rocky for NA/EU the areas are still congested and I honestly don't know how launch will go in two days. On a work day. People would have taken the advantage of this weekend to play all they want and get ahead before the bigger crowd joins.

It is annoying....but let's be honest here...almost every launch, every patch or update has some kind of problems. It is almost expected. Does it suck? Yes it affected a lot of people and then those people can't play and just QQ on the forums instead. Some games are smoother than others with less mistakes don't get me wrong...but unless you like flushing $ down the toilet you're going to keep trying to play until they fix it...or don't fix it and then everyone quit's!

Like SE doesn't have a background and are clueless about MMORGS right? Every game of this scope had and will have problems at launch. And official launch is on 27th.

GW2 wasn't flawless. Took them weeks to make the Auction House work.

I don't know why people even differentiate between headstart and 'official launch' anymore, they are pretty much one and the same. For the most part the only people who start after the head start are those that go into the store and buy a box and in this day and age i have to wonder if there really are many people who still do that. I imagine the vast majority buy online these days and if they are doing that then most will be in the head start anyway.

Besides, this particular game doesn't alleviate any starter zone stress by the two stage stagger. Come Monday a lot of the people who started yesterday will be back in starter areas leveling up other classes for jobs anyway.

Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
