OP This stuff makes me laugh suffice to say you are not a veteran gamer and did not sample the delights of Dark and Light the only way to get that to work as it was a disguised beta was to wait for a hack from the IRC community.

Which could take weeks and hope and prey that another botched patch did not crash the entire server if a certain spell was cast and as there was one server that got kind of old quick !!

So no this is not the worst launch as the beta was smooth and polished and not some pre pre pre alpha stealing your money and your sanity with it.

I look at it this way..

I never played a MMORPG that was able to cater to PC gamers and PS3 gamers on the same game server. The cross platform is pretty amazing so I will give them a break.

I say, a round of applause to SE! AS others have stated, they were expecting a "smaller" launch audience -with how 1.0 ended up- and they prepared accordingly. And then a massive sea of people, more than they ever had anticipated, log in, yes there will be some issues. I can usually get logged in with about 2-5min of trying, which is hardly an issue to cry and flame about!


The fact they are overloaded with players shows how successful they are/were. 


And to the OP: A week and not being able to log in? Are you even trying? I'm curious if you try to log in like once or twice then call it a day.....

And what of the people who couldn't create a toon before every single NA server was locked down?

As far as all the dozen, or so, MMOs I have played at launch, I'd have to agree entirely.  Can't play the game on my initial toon and if I can play it at all it's on the JP worlds, which definitely won't have any transfer ability in the future.  

You can't transfer on JP worlds?

7am Pacific is too late.  That's 10am Eastern.  The "sweet spot" for logging into a NA server is between 4am and 7am Eastern. After 7 or 730 Eastern it starts to get very clogged very quickly.

Tera, GW2, SW:TOR, Rift, Neverwinter and even Aion had better launches. EQ2 was many years ago. I think we can expect a better technology in 2013 (having atleast working waiting queues).

in tera you could login, and had a queue, but then there were no quest monsters so you could not progress. At least in ff the peeps that can login can progress in the game.

in GW2 some could't connect aswell and the crying in these forums was the same, AION you had 5 seconds of lag AFTER you waited for 3h in queue.

How are these better then this launch?

lol, another worst launch ever.

Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

I still hold with the no excuse for this mess crowd. Its Final Fantasy, its a worldwide game that has a long history and massive following. One of my complaints about the beta process was that they didnt allow enough people on to test the servers AND to get a better picture of how many people are interested in playing this game. There was plenty of time for them to plan for this, and there was plenty of indication that the game was going to be this popular again.

Im not flaming mad per se, but I can see most of the population walking away from this game since they cant play anyways, then theres the segment that hit 50 already, got all the gear, and are done, so servers will be open soon. I just dont hold much hope for the future of this game, had too  many bad things happen that were avoidable and too many people have been burned. And in the world of MMO's, once youve been burned you generally dont go back.

Statement here.

Personally, I have to agree that I've not been part of a worse launch.

inb4 "huehue you obviously haven't been in many launches! mmoprg X was WAAY worse".

Just going to get my money back and try again in a few months when they get their servers sorted.

Clever things.

I don't know how you feel about this but I haven't been able to play for almost a week now. I'm someone who can only play in the evening thus it's more difficult for me to join my server. I thought it would improve after a week, defending this game all the time, but it's even worse now. I'm already thinking of going back to my old MMO because I'm losing interest from day to day. 

Personally, I've never witnessed a mess like this, not even at launch. I was really excited to play and the first 25 were a lot of fun but this is a pain in the neck.

Anarchy Online, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.

Besides for the usual bugs, the only major problem with FFXIV: AAR is the ability to login, which is nothing and to be expected. Some could argue that their CS support is another, but that isn't directly related to the launch of a game.

I got a refund for my digital copy of the game.  I am thinking I might come back after everything dies down and you can log in anytime you want.  This has been next to WAR the worst MMO launch within the past 5yrs in my view.  And I am glad I was able to get a refund instead of having to stay frustrated and only be able to play in the early day and afternoon in the (EST) where I am located.  I wish everyone else the best going forward on this.

Momo sucks, I have proof.

Maybe its your 1st or second mmo launch but i have seen much worse mmo launches in the past 15 years....
Some even included taking servers offline for 2 weeks.
Some had many disconnection problems for 1 month
Even last year GW2 had major problems with their auction house that cuased massive lag and many problems for weeks on end.

I had 2 days of problems then it was solved in FFAAR, so worse launch ? not by a long shot.
