But the game is awesome and must be played. Just don't try to play it before 10:00PM EST if you aren't already logged in.

what, people ****** because they paid for a service they're not getting? /shocking i know. of course you expect general nuttiness the first couple of days of a launch. only, this isn't a launch, and it's been the same problem for over a week now. it's a 2nd chance for their 150 million dollar steaming pile of ****, or however much the total is now after the year of re-working. you'd have figured they'd have erred on the side of caution since yoshi's said repeatedly money was no object to making this work.

all lolSE aside, once they get through this they're going to have a monster on their hands. the game is stupid good. i hate this company and had sworn not to give them another nickle.

i'm still playing it if that tells you anything.

Actually they just paid for the game, they haven't paid for any service and won't be for an extra seven days now.

Definitely taking a free transfer if I can get one though. It's 7am PST and it's like the login sh*tstorm never stopped. If they'd just keep the queue working and locked out people who spammed through it... Letting the queue break down leads to making people spam to get in and results in ten times as many requests, which just breaks the system even worse. Fix the f*cking queues and the traffic will be cut by a magnitude that the lobby server won't **** itself every hour.

true enough i guess, but fairly irrelevant. you dont' buy a game to install it and look at the login screen.

well, maybe you do if you buy SE.

so got DC'd last night, woke up to the black screen of doom. logged on, NO SERVERS FOR JOOOOOO. got to love it.

Maybe I'll give this all a go when the login problems are fixed - it's free to get ARR if you bought Version 1.0 right?

Ultros is the zam server of choice. There is a zam LS that I didn't bother joining, but they must have a pretty decent number of members, I see them all the time. I'm in a small shell with a few people from =22. I just logged on a few minutes ago and got right in without even getting queued. It might be too early to tell, but for the moment at least it seems that the maintenance took care of the log in problems.

Says nothing of creating a character, which is easily the bigger issue.

FFXIV community finally figured out that the game is grindy. It's like hearing casuals ***** about FFXI all over again and the sound is absolutely wonderful.

A Final Fantasy game? Grindy? Why, I am aghast at this revelation. It comes as a complete shock. SHOCK I say.

Anyone the thinks XIV is grindy clearly never played XI. In the time that it takes you to get to max level in XIV, you might be able to get yourself one piece of decent gear from XI.

So your defense is that because there's a more grindy game, that the grind in the new game is okay. Congratulations, you're a beaten wife.

Anyone know how FFXI is faring after the launch of FFXIV? I don't expect FFXI to be dead, but I am curious if there is a notable missing chuck of players from the game.

The one real problem with XIV as far as leveling goes is that once you've exhausted the quests in an area on one job, that's it. You can't level another job through that area and have the quests available to you, so you're stuck more doing FATES and leves, and that slows down your leveling a good bit. It'd be nice if the quests could be repeated once per job, but after the first time you've done it, you can only get the exp reward from it (so no meds, gear, etc). That way you wouldn't need to choose whether or not to skip an entire region when leveling since you don't want to use their quests for your one job.

Eh, I'm ok with how quests work right now. I like how the game makes it great for casual players to step into end game (even if the culture is toxic), but still puts forth a bit of a grind for those that want to be more dedicated.

I'd like to see dungeons give a little more xp to be competitive with FATEs and guildhest fights need to offer the bonus xp for each class you take into it.

I was in a dungeon yesterday and was getting 1000+ exp per kill, how much exp do you want from them?

Reducing FATE xp would be ok with me instead... I hardly care about leveling fast, I just think the optimal methods should require group tactics, not slash and burn mentality.

Though I guess if that became the best path, you would be more likely to run into @#%^s, so maybe that's not a good plan.

Duty EXP is pretty great or GC Leves/Fates if you need seals. It's not as fast as blitzing through ques tlines but I think they built the game to give you a straight shot to 50 on one job via the storyline and anything else you want is on your time.

The game is far from a grind. I find myself bouncing from a variety of events based on what's available at the time. In less than 3 weeks playing at a very casual rate I've got WAR at 41/50. I think in that time frame for FFXI I managed to figure out that I didn't have to run to my mog house every time I wanted to heal HP and I MIGHT have seen the Dunes.

The only thing I long for in this game is the creativity. Players used to come up with such bananas gear sets and job combinations to just do one thing well. In 14, any half cocked gear set will let you do most things adequately.

Also fail eels.
