1. no proper queue system.

2. not enough servers (they are adding more next week). SE should also add free transfers to these new servers for people that want to move.

3. no auto-kick for afk players.

Re # 2, I was thinking that as well when I was so desperate I have a couple of characters on different servers. I'm just wondering how many webpages one will need to chip through to make a transfer happen! Everything SE is so bloody complicated in regards to Account Management

Im having fun playing the game. Reason i think the servers are always full is because there isnt afk kick. I was playing and went to work and came home and i was still logged in. I think they need to fix that and it will help with ques.

I know you guys don't throw high ratings around like candy (I have come to trust your rating system) but I'm surprised @ the relatively low score of 5.1

My wife and I have had more fun playing FF14 than we have had in an MMO in many years, ARR has a old school feel that I cant get enough of, the story and cut scenes are awesome & its really nice to revisit the trinity after some heavy GW2 playing.

Once you log in the game is solid with almost no bugs, and EXTREMELY well polished. Hopefully it gets easier to log in this week.

(I know its a review in progress, I guess I'm trying to say I believe this game will ultimately score higher when the kinks are worked out, thus far I'm so happy with the leveling experience I must commend S.E. on there fine work in this area!)

The old rating deserves to stay until the review is done because of the giant turd it was the first time around.  I think the original 5.1 score was pretty generous considering.. :P

Very fair and accurate review so far.


For the people complaining that "they spend too much time on the issues"... Well, my thinking is that the reviewer is going to report their experiences. The experience for them seems to have been fighting with the 90000, 1015 and 3102 error codes, while attempting to get past the character selection. Which is pretty darn accurate, considering it's the same experience thousands of others have had as well.


They're spot on in pointing out how they failed to implement an inactive AFK kick function. When everyone playing the game has paid for it (even those 1.0 customers who got the download free), every one of them has a fair right to expect they should be able to play. To stay AFK to "hold your spot" even if you're not actually there for 8+ hours is inexcusable. To make matters worse, SE's response to the community's requests to implement such a system was "we'll consider it after the fixes next week". So, in other words, "when such a thing is - ostensibly - no longer necessary... we'll think about implementing it". Awesome. Wonderful thought process there. So in the meantime, thousands of people - myself included - are unable to play a game they paid for.


That's been my experience so far. I went 5 days being unable to play at all (starting in EA and into launch). That frustration, on top of the selfish attitudes of the AFK'ers, on top of SE's deliberate inaction to deal with them, on top of the horrible community that has emerged around this game, through beta and now into launch... I decided to walk away, at least for the foreseeable future.


I've been in some bad launches. This has been the worst.


I've seen some awful communities around a MMO (Darkfall 1.0 and Shadowbane come to mind). Many of the people I've encountered and had the displeasure of dealing with make those people look like saints.


The worst of it is when I was called a "whiney, entitled baby", and told to leave because "they didn't want crybabies like me in their game"... for complaining about not being able to log into the game for (at that point) 4 days. It gets better... I would later find out the person saying that to me was one of the AFK'ers hogging up available slots while they went to work/bed... Their excuse? So they wouldn't have to deal with the very same issue they were bashing me (and others) for complaining about.  And they called me "entitled". Hypocrisy at its most blatant... and ARR's community is filled with them.


So.. I'm gonna come back at some point down the line and see how this game is doing, and maybe give it another go. For now, I'm keeping my distance.


ARR is a solid game, tarnished by a horrible launch, inadequate response by SE, and a community overrun by abhorrent hypocrites.

No problems here playing on a NA server so far using PS3. I am having a blast, but if issues are encountered you can contact customer support and be patient, at launch XIV has a very large player base playing the game, often all trying to get into the fun at about the same time.

This is not a review.

This is a rant about the login screen.

I was hoping to read a review. Thanks for wasting my time complaining. I want to know if the game is good. Not if an MMO had MMO troubles during an MMO launch, just like every MMO to ever exist in the MMO genre. Thanks for nothing.

FRONTLINE needs to be introduced and a serious alternative to DAOC  for me to consider the game.

I don't understand what the thought process is at these companies.  Surely they knew how many copies of the game they sold or had a fairly good idea.  Surely they had an idea of the number of players a server could comfortably hold.  This isn't calculus, it is basic math.  Why after a decade of terrible MMO launches do we still continue to see the same crap happening?

I have the Impression, that many fans of FF do not understand, what this is about. Imagine somebody, who has no idea about this game, but is interested. He or she can come to this site and get good information - currently there are too many issues. Too many players cannot Login. I am happy that this site is independent from the publishers and just tells us the truth.

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.

The game is fun, but server management and the whole registration process is a nightmare.

I like to have physical copies of the games I buy and since I ordered from amazon it looks like I'll be waiting until next week some time before i can log in again. The code I registered when purchasing the game apparently only came with a two day grace period after EA.  Now my wife and I are stuck waiting for our boxes to arrive by mail. Why not give a reasonable amount of leeway to those who've supported your game.

Also, many of our group of friends had the misfortune of getting the PS3 version. After a few days sorting out the issues with Sony and SE they finally were able to log in only to discover that the server we all had decided to get on was being lock out for any new characters.

Although, I can see why since the server has been basically full and unable to get into unless you are lucky enough to sneak in during server down times. For the entire first part of the week logging into the server my main char is on has resulted in a 1017 error. Most of our little group of friends has ditched our mains and created characters on a EU server, but that is a sorry fix for a game that is supposedly "reborn".

This game does have potential, but to have all these issues years after the original launch is pathetic. It would be nice to have something stable to play for a year or two. I thought this may be that game, however it is looking less and less likely.

I've tryed it on both PS3 and PC. I ended up buying it on PC (just an old habit I'm better with a keyboard). Yes it's super frustrating that it's hard to log in at times. With that said I can say that yesterday I had no issues at all logging on. I know that SE is bringing in more servers some time next week to help create more room for players. They were boasting that the game was selling so much and that the servers were so full that they had to suspend digital sales.


I will say that FFXIV:RR is a very solid game. I do see it lasting half a decade or more in the MMO-space. What I don't see lasting is the subscription fee. More and more it's becoming an unpopular model for doing business. Overall though the game is fun and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. It has a lot of polish and tons of things to do as you work your way towards end game. At the moment I would recommend it but for anyone coming in now I'd say give it a week until they get those new servers up. I'd review the game but I think it's far to soon to slap a rating on the game.

Yep, the launch is on the disaster side by now. He is right on that.

But this shouldn't be a Review in progress article, this is just a rant on the state of the servers. The title should be changed Imo.

This  "review" is as professional as  giving the Godfather a 1 because the cinema sits were dirty.

I think a 5.1 score for the scope of the review so far is pretty fair.  Love or Hate the game it's hard to argue that this games launch has been very poorly handled all around.
