    Ugh, this is such a disaster. I'm done trying to log in I've been trying to for the past 10 hours every hour and have had no success. This has to be one of the worst launches I've seen in a long time I hope they get their shit together by the time it actually launches, so much for early access.

    You know what else is the sad thing in all of this..

    It's seeing how fragmented their team is in communicating with the population. I see some of the Devs actually giving some news on twitter and on the website about what's going on ingame. But the forums, facebook, webpage are a complete void, it became public anarchy, no Mods, no Devs, it's a community graveyard with no voice or control.

    I would understand that they're overwhelmed. But I (personally) have no idea if they know that my problem exists, if they're working on it, if they ran out of keys, if they're fixing the problem.. Heck, if they even are aware of the problem that some keys have not been distributed. And that wait for an awnser and anxiety is killing me as a consumer.

    I would be a happy consumer if they said public: We are aware that some players have not been awarded their early access as we ran out of keys / or we're fixing the problem.

    I think the fact that I don't know if they know what's going on is actually the thing that's stressing me a bit out.

    What is your opinion on their communication with the public about the ongoing issues?

    Most people are catching on that they should stay logged in since they wont get booted anyway for idleness.

    Shows how genius these guys are working behind the scenes.

    They kill off queues but also don't force people off (at least as a temporary measure) to allows others on at a more regular pace.

    So yes, you're probably better doing something else. I personally am going to go to bed early tonight. Maybe I'll get lucky in the morning before work and get a couple of hours in.

    It's not Blizzard communication. I think communication wise, they probably need to improve. I have criticisms of them but I'm keeping my passion in check.

    Did you already pick up the quests to do the dungeons?

    I wish they would talk to us more. They just keep saying the same thing over and over again. "Sorry! We're looking into it sorry! Play tanks sorry!" I would like to hear something else, we plan to do this about this that and everything. Probably cant tell us much though...

    No actually I havent, though I'm in the queue for the first tutorial one.

    I didn't even realize people were having trouble playing till I checked here again. Guess getting stuck on my old JP server worked out.

    Once you're in the game is smooth as can be. It's the getting in that is giving people trouble, and it's because the servers are packed. Release some new servers please!

    When you do the last part of the airship city travel, and you speak to the last city leader (I think Uldah? can't remember) a new quest pops up right as you exit the room. It leads you back to Limsa Lominsa to start the dungeon quests. I would visit the leaders of each of the cities and you should run into the quest.

    Yo. Does this game have big huge guilds like in WoW where everyone in the raid groups are expected to be guild members? Because I heard 24 man raids, 8 man parties.

    Btw, I wanna play on my PS3 lol, I guess game comes out tomorrow but the past 3 pages or so have all been complaints about logging in...you're scaring me.

    Pre-ordered the game this saturday, and I haven't received any registration codes, let alone mails other than the pre-order confirmation.
    Don't care about early access, but I'd like to register the game on my account to get it over with.

    Are we supposed to receive these codes on launch day or beforehand?
    Not sure if I should contact customer support now or wait until the 27th.

    From what I've heard from a few people PS3 users are having no problem at all logging in, dunno if its true or not though.

    Not really sure how that can be considering they use the same servers.

    Yeah a friend went out to get food without logging figuring he'd be kicked and when he came back 4 hours later he was still logged in.
    This is oddly reminiscent of the AFK "shops" people were using to stay logged in during the first week of Aion.

    They need to add an AFK timer ASAP.

    I know the game is still under some sort of an NDA, but anyone want to give some general sense of how it is? I'm intrigued by it but if it's just your modern day garden variety MMO experience in the FF world then I'll probably pass. I've certainly enjoyed FF games but I wouldn't say it's my favorite gaming world or anything.

    You should've received a promotional code after pre-ordering in <xxxxx-xxx-xxxxx-xxx> format. You then input this code on the official site; should be a link to go there from the official page. You will then be shown an early access code to be inputted in the client for registration.

    This should be the link to enter your promo code and receiving the early access code:

    As we previously announced, we are continuing to limit the number of logins in order to address the high server load. We are slowly lifting the login restriction, so if you are currently unable to login, please try again at a later time.

    Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this is causing everyone, but we would like to ask for your continued cooperation to make this a stable environment.
    They just posted this a few minutes ago. This is what they've been saying all day. Its really not helpful at all. I wish they would give us a timeline or something as to when this will get better.

    They have their own twists on crafting classes/jobs leveling and end game. At the end of the day though its still a level>gear>dungeon>gear>Dungeon ect experience.

    It is more story driven then most mmos, but it is still a mmo after all.
