Hey gang!

We arrived at the venue today for our technical rehearsals and were able to snap some shots of the staff transforming the rooms into something straight out of FFXIV! We'll be sure to share some more cool stuff when possible!

As you can see, things are really starting to shape up inside...

I bet you guys can guess the type of feel we're aiming for with these decorations!

 

Wow, they are going all out for this announcement.

It might be a bit quieter tomorrow as we'll all be busy with our respective roles, but we'll try and offer up some updates when possible!

A couple more:

 

 

Above is what I would presume to be the patcher/launcher.

 

On a side note, I want those flags that they have hanging from the ceiling.

For Gridania! =)

Main post updated. I see someone made another thread instantly to try and derail the one we've been working on for days.

I'm excited... I think.

No seriously, I know how much honor means in their culture and it really hit them hard when the first iteration flopped. Let's hope all their hard work pays off!

The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

About the other thread:

 

Don't get your panties in a bunch over something so trivial, there were no updates 6 hours after the producer letter listed a specific date for beta. This thread wasn't updated until almost 24 hours after.

 

These forums are a source for information. No one has done anything wrong by posted just that, information.

 

I've heard stories about MMORPG's nazi moderation, but this is the first time I've experienced it, maybe you should eat your own words, since the other thread was posted over 12 hours before this one was updated. 

"Another thread, please folks make use of the search function before creating another thread on this...if your late your late..."

We've had this thread here for what... the WHOLE week now?

MMORPG.com doesn't allow duplicate threads, period.

Besides, your thread was just a link and nothing else. What kind of thread is that?

If there are two of the same topic in existance, the Mods will lock the one with the least amount of views and posts everytime, reguardless of when it was generated.

Your topic was not about the released beta schedule until today, hours after it was already posted.

Mine was a simple post of information that no one else had posted at the time. I expected it to fade away, but what bothers me is that you post like I did something wrong by sharing information that was not posted anywhere else at the time.

Do you really want to sit here and say that this thread had the Feb 25th release date for phase 1 beta before it was edited today? It didn't. By your own description it should be your thread that was locked.

 

The lodestone update was available hours before I posted here followed by:

> My post @ 2/15/13 4:41:41 AM

> MMORPG news update around 7 am

> Your edit @ 2/15/13 at 8:21:58 AM

I agree, that's ridiculous. If the person updating the current information thread is late on updating their post, then someone beating them to the punch should not be condemned. I mean, I can understand locking the new thread in favor of the older thread once it's actually updated, but the person first to provide the pertinent information could at least get a thank you instead of inaccurate, condescending posts like "if your late your late..." The new poster wasn't late, the updater of this thread was.

That said, I can understand Allizar's frustration. He was simply updating the FFXIV community here with information that still hadn't shown up, 12 hours later. There's no reason to act like he did something wrong.

Edit 2: Sigh... nevermind.

There are only like 3-4 active topics in this subforum at a time take it down a peg or two.  There is no need to be so extremely defensive all the time (in multiple topics and comments on news stories). 

 

The new information is nice for people who don't follow lodestone, but how about some discussion since you know this information is all recyicled (no matter who reposted it here first).  Arguing about double posting an announcement when there are so few active threads is silly.

 

I don't think some of you are going to survive open beta when the real mmorpg.com trolls return to bash this game if you are at the throats of fellow fans over something so trivial.

 

Gifthorse would likely give you an aneurysm.

Agreed, and I appreciate the "all in one" discussion and information provided by this thread (Which is different from my purely informative thread posting one key piece of new information).  I'll likely be deleting my posts after a few days or an apology, whichever comes first, so people seeking discussion and information can find that instead.

 

I was never trying to derail anything and I looked through the posts before I created a thread  with updated info as well as the source to that information. Next time perhaps the OP and sidekick should use the search function to realize that my post was up before the MMORPG news update.

Looks like you derailed the thread with this post.  The pictures were nice to look at, thanks for the updates.
