And as far as Rift goes... LOTS of people got hacked, lots. Thousands.

Rift had a 100x better launch than FFXIV:ARR.

I was one of those hacked, do you know what happend? I called them. I was able to pick up a phone and call Trion.

20 minutes later I had a free 2 weeks of game time, my account back, and the preorder bonuses from each retailer as an apology.

 

 

FFXIV is the worst launch in the last 5 years for any highly anticipated MMO.

Stop fooling yourselves into thinking it's okay. "It's an MMO you KIDS should know it's going to be bad" STOP THIS NONSENSE. It's NOT OKAY.

The people still defending SE are the same people in beta 4 saying "3102? It's beta bro, chill out" and the same people who said "It's early access, you should just be happy you're in the game. Of course there's going to be server errors".

JUST STOP.

If this new "fix" for the servers Wednesday doesn't work, what then? What will you guys say?

For ME, this launch is way better than Rift... I did not get my account back in a timely fasion. They told me it was something I did wrong, when in fact, it was a security issue on thier end. It killed Rift for me.

Not everyone is having the same experience.. Life is like that. 

I'm no FF fan boy, and I'm not apologizing for them. This launch has Issues.. It's just NOT the worst MMO launch ever.

Now though, if I just keep trying to log in, takes me about 15 min tops so far, and that's on Behemoth, which is one of the most populated servers.

If you're on Gilgamesh...I think you're pretty much s.o.l.

Lol, yep I'm on Gilgamesh so I've pretty much given up on the game this weekend. I considered rerolling but at lvl 35 I can't be bothered and there is only one NA/EU server that you can roll on now aswell all the others are locked.

still not the worst launch ever though, vanilla wow was dreadful, Aion the queues were 4-5 hrs long on some servers, this game is very polished once you get in, so again there are many mmos that were almost unplayable once you got in. This launch has been very frustrating though, I agree with that.

Well the fact that you are lv35 means that you are getting on and playing the game a lot.  Yeah it sucks right now and it does suck having issues getting on...but having a lv35...you've spent a lot of time in game...so its not nearly as hopeless as you make it sound.

The only reason I've been lucky is I got a lot of game time during early access and I'm from the UK, so at certain times of the day the yanks are sleeping. So I don't feel it's hopeless at all, I was originally joking with the person who commented that If you were on Gigamesh you were stuffed :)

I think it would be fair to say that Square Enix massively underestimated the number of players they would get, which is both good and bad, good because it means the game will be  a success, but bad because handling those numbers is going to hurt a 'fragile' reputation. Personally i am quite happy to wait for things to stabilise, the game is a huge amount of fun, though there is one thing it could do with, or at least something i havent discovered how to do yet, and that is how to slap an ignore on the gold spammers..  As for me, im sticking around, I feel as though after a long time of searching i've finally found a game worth playing

However, noting that the launch JUST HAPPENED 4 days ago, losing interest in the MMO because you can't log in is pure nonsense.

 

I do know that the servers should be have an AFK boot system. I do know that SO MANY PEOPLE ARE LOGGING IN, so you can't log in. However, that's the success this game is getting.

Although Square was not expecting this much people, they are planning to add even more servers to lessen the crowd in each already existing server.

 

So don't tell me that you and a bunch of other people are losing interest on a game that reached the public for less than a week.

Shadowbane launch was worse. EQ2 was worse. WAR was worse or maybe about the same. AOC was worse, once you left the starter area. If I were to give it some more thought, I might be able to come up w/ a couple more.

I have to agree with the OP - I've been in many a launch but to purchase a game and not even be able to queue for the game or even create a character is uncalled for. Launch day is one of THE most important days for an MMO - for many people it defines how the game will be run and is the FIRST impression.

In the case of FF - they're introducing a new version of a failed 1st version...which makes it even MORE important that everything run smoothly. SE should have "over-prepared" for the launch instead of playing it conservative and pissing off existing customers as well as potential ones.

Yeap.. Everything you say is true. My only point is I don't think it's THE worst ever.

No !! Expecting any Que ue system at all is just being brainwashed by all the other failed developers.I expect A1 from Square Enix,that is what i witnessed for many years.Somewhere along the last 4 years or so,somebody or a group of board members have got greedy and are pushing everything out too fast.

To be honest there should be a bit of slack to Square,i doubt they expected this type of following.However an organized guy in charge  would have had a backup plan to ensure more servers if needed.Plus they had server errors and login problems last Beta,this launch should have never gone forth until fully tested again.

The sad part is that soooo many are talking about the game from a networking point of view and not really about the game itself.It is the server structure and people in charge with that whole process that should be ridiculed not the game .I am still waiting to see who steps up and takes blame for the estate of server errors and lack of capacity.

If this was all Yoshi`s push forward,then he needs to get demoted,i expected better.If he was pushed by board members or another higher up,i would fire that guy because this type of launch can destroy a game and maybe a developer.

For me it is - I've had trouble logging in..crashes...bugs...etc... but I've NEVER not been able to even create a character - this is a 1st for me.

I have been seeing a lot of people arguing that at least this isn't the "Worst Launch ever". Does that even matter to someone that is experiencing a bad launch and unable to play the game that they paid for? Or better yet, what if they have never experienced a worse launch then for them this would be the Worst launch ever? Worst launch is relative to many things. If it doesn't feel right for one person that doesn't mean that others are not allowed to feel different about this launch. 

 

I like my hotdogs with mustard but I can guarantee that some of you out there just down right hate mustard on a hotdog? Right? So if you got a hotdog from a vendor after asking it not to have mustard you would be upset, some would throw a fit and others would just ask for a replacement or their money back. Either way it isn't what they expected in a game after a week and they don't have to consider that it wasn't the "Worst Launch"!

  You can't really say "worst launch EVER" and then discount and comparison someone makes because it is an old game. As was stated there have been many worse launches than this, yes most if not all of them were more than 5 years ago. There have been far worse launches EVER though.

I like my hot dogs naked, however, if some one put some spicy mustard, or sour kraut on it, I'd still eat it... Those condiments alone would not make it the worst hot dog ever...

What's my point you may be asking yourself?

If you can figure it out, please let me know. I'm curious too.

I do know that the servers should be have an AFK boot system. I do know that SO MANY PEOPLE ARE LOGGING IN, so you can't log in. However, that's the success this game is getting.

Although Square was not expecting this much people, they are planning to add even more servers to lessen the crowd in each already existing server.

 

So don't tell me that you and a bunch of other people are losing interest on a game that reached the public for less than a week.

No it's not nonsense.  If he feels the way he does, who are you to tell him it's wrong?

I've lost a great deal of interest in this game (partly due to issues I have with the game itself) but greatly due to the absolutely atrocious mess this launch has been.

Release a game with a very large established fanbase from 10+ years of bnet history when the market was still emerging and the casual base had not yet been established, thus ripe for harvesting a momentious self perpetuating playerbase people never leave because they have X hours invested in their characters, and their friends and everyone else plays anyway. Not discounting Blizzard quality... but WoW's success is as much about perfect timing as it is quality, if not more so. - Derros

  You can't really say "worst launch EVER" and then discount and comparison someone makes because it is an old game. As was stated there have been many worse launches than this, yes most if not all of them were more than 5 years ago. There have been far worse launches EVER though.

Only launch I participated in that was worse was Vanguard but that was because the whole game was a mess.

In terms of launches (and I mean just launch), this has been the worst I have participated in.

I have been seeing a lot of people arguing that at least this isn't the "Worst Launch ever". Does that even matter to someone that is experiencing a bad launch and unable to play the game that they paid for? Or better yet, what if they have never experienced a worse launch then for them this would be the Worst launch ever? Worst launch is relative to many things. If it doesn't feel right for one person that doesn't mean that others are not allowed to feel different about this launch. 

 

I like my hotdogs with mustard but I can guarantee that some of you out there just down right hate mustard on a hotdog? Right? So if you got a hotdog from a vendor after asking it not to have mustard you would be upset, some would throw a fit and others would just ask for a replacement or their money back. Either way it isn't what they expected in a game after a week and they don't have to consider that it wasn't the "Worst Launch"! 

I like my hot dogs naked, however, if some one put some spicy mustard, or sour kraut on it, I'd still eat it... Those condiments alone would not make it the worst hot dog ever...

What's my point you may be asking yourself?

If you can figure it out, please let me know. I'm curious too.

OP says its the "Worst launch ever" I am saying that he has his opinion. If it is the Worst for him then I believe him. Just tired of all the Spin about this game. "Its not the worst blah blah I have seen worst blah blah blah. Who cares if you seen worse to the OP it is the worst for him. See I understand his frustration. I am just so happy that I don't have to Experience the WORST GAME EVER!
