Use this thread to discuss and help each other out with any character-related issues you might run into.
---

I know this isnt exactly the right forum for this but to be honest i cant get in to make a character FF14 crashes upon loading. I have played many games before that my computer does not meet the requirements for and it handled them fine. I play diablo 3, WoW, and I can even dual box at full graphics in Eve Online. I thought I would check out FF14 seeing how its price has come down sense it first played I got my account sorted out and then when I click play she just crashes at the start menue. Square enix needs to adjust the graphics drive for FF14 there should be no reason the game to crash at the start menue. Hell I have even run Unreal 2004 on a computer that was in all sense of the word falling apart at the seems flooded with viruses by its previous owner and that game was seriously heavy on the gc as many of its maps were player created in high detail. I am a Final Fantasy fan and love playing the classic games and some of the new ones. But if FF14 is that heavy duty on the graphics i could see a large ousting of player base for those who cant afford a high end gaming computer. I would hope that square enix be able to adjust the gc requirements to allow more people to be able to experience the game. Again i know this isnt exactly the right forum for this but without a character created I cant post in the FF14 forum.

Hmm thought my gc was better then what it was she only running Intel HD. Still weird I can play many games beyond her specs gues I will have to hold off a few years till i can afford a better comp if the game still around then.

You may want to consult the knowledge base on Final Fantasy XIV here: support.na.square-enix.com/faqarticle.ph... (http://support.na.square-enix.com/faqarticle.php?id=902&la=1&kid=56903&ret=faqtop&c=5&sc=49)


I believe that pertains to your current problem of crashing on launch.


If you need further assistance, there are resources here you can use to contact Square Enix's Customer Service.


Hope that helps and that you can play FFXIV soon!

Interesting thing is if i set the graphics down to lowest quality it crashes upon startup but if i have it set to standard i can get all the way to the menue. Im grabbing the benchmark to see what it rates my gc at i know windows 7 puts me at a 5.2 out of 7.4 for gaming graphics. Its just weird that I can play every other game i have tried. To some extent i could model on this computer as well. Hmm well this is odd i must have something on the comp thats messing with the game itself even the benchmark tool does not work it crashes as well. I know shes a laptop her id is Satelite L655-S5146. I actually got her cheap cause someone changed the password on the blue ray display one and they refused to sell it sadly they trashed that comp to their policy so they gave me the next best one they had for the sale price of the blue ray one.

I been reading around and I have found a disturbing trend of a great number of people complaining about laptops/destops unable to play ff14 despite meeting the minimum or exceeding the max requirements for the game: Some have said laptops are not great for gaming but I have found them to be excelent except for when one wants to dual box then it becoms work. It is disturbing to read those as an mmo should never be that heavy. I have read some where people even say that they have had to wait ten minutes for npcs to fully load.

the ps3 version will have a log in screen just like the PC version. You can play on your account on your PS3 if you want. Now when your brother wants to play all he'd have to do is log in using his own account.

What you have is an account for pc. When you buy the ps3 version you have a choice: you can either link your ps3 version to your pc account and play using the same person you have been. Or if you both want to play at the same time with the ps3 version your brother will need to make a new account and subscription.


So if you want to play at the same time you will need 2 subscriptionsand 2 accounts. You can only have one person playing on each account.


If you want to have 2 characters and take turns playing you can use one account with 2 made characters on it.

Just a quick question.

I haven't found yet a place where is stated so I would like to ask here. I bought collectors and played until march, 2011 or so... my question is ... that character that I worked on, would be available on FFXIV: ARR ? I played until I couldn't handle all the work that required XIV at that time but recently I tried BETA and I liked what I looked, so I just wanted to know if I could play with that character and not start from 0 again, thank you all for your answers...

Yes you will keep your character but I shall also add you are also able to rename your character and recreate it while still keeping your items/level/etc. You are also able to transfer to new servers base on where you live. However since you're a LEGACY member, you can only transfer THAT character to Legacy servers and not the new servers since Yoshida Naoki (Producer and Director) doesn't want the Legacy players to destroy the economy of other servers. So whoever joins those servers start from scratch.

The legacy servers in NA are:
Balmung
Excalibur
Hyperion
Sargatanas

The Legacy servers in EU is:
Ragnarok


The Legacy servers in JP are:
Aegis
Durandal
Gungnir
Masamune
Ridill





This way you won't miss out on the whole experience of FFXIV: ARR. If you like, you can still leave your character in the legacy server and make a new one on the new servers. Named after the monsters in Final Fantasy. However, the coolest one (Bahamut) is in Japan. :/

The coolest name server in NA is probably Behemoth and Gilgamesh . I'm planning to join Behemoth.. but tempted to join Gilgamesh.

I believe if you have made a character in the Legacy servers, you can't transfer to the new servers regardless if you're a true legacy member or not. However, I'm just posting more just in case others are reading. If you are a new player but want to move to a legacy server because of friends/family/guildies. You can move to a Legacy server regardless if you're a legacy member or not.


Gilgamesh seems to be the most popular new server in FFXIVARR but that's based off this site: xivpads.com/?WorldTransferDirectory (http://xivpads.com/?WorldTransferDirectory)

I played and leveled to cap on 1.0. Now my login tells me no characters on the lodestone and on here no games registered.

I tried to register my original registration code, and it says it's invalid.

What's the deal there.

Please tell me I don't have to buy this game again.

Is there a way to save a specific name before launch so you can make sure you can get the character name that you want?

ExHumor
15th Aug 2013, 00:33
I'm curious as to why you'd even care to save a name...

Considering you can pretty much have any name you want. Usernames consist of a First and Last name, and from my experience anyways... coming up with even one username is difficult enough, let alone a First, and Last Name. I'd say it doesn't really matter if you're able to save usernames or not, due to this fact alone.

Pretty hard for someone to steal your username. I'd imagine it's pretty rare for two people to think of the same First and Last name, unless of course you're trying to copy it from a game, show, anime, etc. Then it's not that rare, but anyone who can't come up with an original name on their own, deserves to have their name "Unavailable" in my opinion anyways haha.

Bhalditar
15th Aug 2013, 00:45
If you're able to participate in Phase 4 or Early Access, the characters you create will be carried over to the official release on August 27th. While you are not able to reserve a name specifically, those who play at launch will not be able to use your name if they are playing on the same server.

Broomy514
16th Aug 2013, 13:25
Basically I know this questions has been asked and answered a lot, but I can't remember the answer. I played FFXIV ever since launch 2 years ago or so, but didn't play much towards the end ( maybe the last 4 months before servers came down) . My question is, will FFXIV Realm Reborn still have my toon that had most jobs already to 50 saved on it? or Will I have to start from scratch when Final Fantasy XIV Realm Reborn goes live?

16th Aug 2013, 22:52
You can yes. You will have to buy both a pc version and a ps3 version of the game though. then it's just a matter of signing into your account on the pc or ps3

Twizzo
17th Aug 2013, 05:07
If you can, then couldn't you just buy the PS3 copy and play on both with that since you already have an account and could potentially download the client for the PC without paying for it?

Ive been experiencing this problem for about 12 + hours now, where as if i go to send someone a /tell it gives me the error message of being bound by duty even though i am not currently active in one. The link shell, friends list, and search functions are all also greyed out/disabled and when i actually do go to try and register/join a duty or main storyline instance, i am immediately kicked from the server with the message "cannot connect to server 9000" error. Ive tried sending in 3 help tickets (over the course of 12 + hours, of course no response or help) as well as tried clearing out my quest/duty cache to no avail. The game is now pretty much unplayable for me now. I am a lvl 16 gladiator on the Adamantoise server named Lemroth Firestorm. Is anyone else experiencing this issue and or have a fix for it? Is there a place where i can post my problem where SE might actually react to it. Any help is appreciated.

While I was in the middle of the game, the game suddenly just logged me out. When I tried to log back in, it said it was unable to update the character servers. but when it finally did, it kept saying my character is still logged in. Whats going on?

Cabalistic
18th Aug 2013, 04:52
No, it isn't. The server disconnected me coming out of an instance and now I'm unable to log back in because the server seems to think my character is still there. Hopefully tech team is aware of this and is fixing ASAP.

Created a new character. Both times LOGGED OUT per Square-Enix recommendations.

Now I can't log in (says I'm still logged in). Attempts to fix the issue:

* shut down system for two minutes (no network activity).
* changed to second character
* created a NEW character
* created a new character on Faerie (new world) - unable to get into the lobby (whatever that means) - nor was that character saved (BIG BUG).

So, net result, is after over an hour I have yet to get back to my character.

--- off topic ---

The idea that the user should have to pick the server is, hopefully, limited only to the beta. As a normal product (I'm looking at LBP as an example) I shouldn't have to decide which "world" (server) in order to play with my friends - it should be automatic with servers doing appropriate load balancing.

I suppose it doesn't matter which server you're trying to log onto if it thinks you're already online. It wouldn't let you on 2 characters at a time normally.

18th Aug 2013, 05:37
well i suppose this is a good thing.. 1. we find out this problem before we give square enix our creditcard subscription. 2. for those who preorder through stores like gamestop we can put our money to something else. 3. We know before hand how the service will be like once the game is live and if they have a massive system failure.

You're giving up on the game because they're having a problem with the beta test? You DO realize that the point of a beta test is for them to test out their game, not so people can have a free demo of what the game will be like. If you're expecting a beta test to not have any problems, your hopes are way too high :P

I'm on PC and I'm getting the same problem, even went as far as to download the PS3 and try there but same issue. Doesn't seem to matter what system you play on, the server and the issue connecting to it remain the same

Also why would not get this game on PC it loads faster, looks WAY better, and is cheaper. Hope it makes it to steam, Like using my steam wallet for my game purchases and such

i have had this problem for the last 4 hours - i am on excalibur (NA server) and my ls members have said that my character still shows online, but has the cutscene marker next to my name. i got booted when i tried to do my level 15 archer quest fight, so i think i am perpetually stuck in that spot unless they take down the servers for maintenance (not what they did earlier, which did not require players to sign off or get booted). sucks, but think that unless they do a hard reset of the servers, all of us with 3102 will not be seeing the rest of open beta.

You're giving up on the game because they're having a problem with the beta test? You DO realize that the point of a beta test is for them to test out their game, not so people can have a free demo of what the game will be like. If you're expecting a beta test to not have any problems, your hopes are way too high :P

just so we are clear this is a live game "There are NO rollbacks" so pretty much the "Beta" title means litterally nothing the devleopment is 100% done for retail atm.
IMO there should be a fresh start on the 24th considering the unfair advantage some players got. EG: no 3102, made it on correct server before they filled up. few other things you can count like torret clients(2hr advantage) Customer Service 1st wave of threads was complaing about taken emails.

Hi, same thing was happening to me. Refresh the server page. It should update which servers have room. I started loading in but still haven't got in yet. This was about 20 minutes ago so maybe it's full already and I'm stuck in limbo. Maybe you'll have better luck.

Due to the large number of concurrent players on the NA/EU datacenter, we'll be adding three new Worlds
We'll be adding Lamia, Phoenix and Siren. Among them, Phoenix is a world recommended for EU region.
To guide players to those two new Worlds, we'll be suspending character creation on the other NA/EU data center Worlds.

you can only create characters on those three worlds

No communication for Square Enix I have never seen a game where you don't get any response from anyone ever on the forums besides other players. If this is a sign of the Support of this game then I want nothing to do with it myself. Yes its Beta but still not communicating with your Community is a really bad idea and you will lose many people from playing the game.

Yes, this is a beta, so of course stress tests will crash servers, etc. But a widespread crippling issue like this? A week prior to launch, and no statement or update? And the forums going offline too? You'd think they'd have some rough idea about the numbers of people they're expecting, due to the fact that they gave out registration codes to begin with.

Am I able to transfer my Characters between my FFXIV accounts?
I have my original FFXIV 1.0 account with my original characters. I have also a registered account from an SE Digital download on which I played my open beta character. I have since ordered the FFXIV ARR Collectors Edition disk version of which I am yet to receive. Can I transfer my Beta character to my Collectors Edition once I can register that account? Can I transfer my original characters from v1.0 to my new account? I would like to keep 2 accounts but would like to make my Collectors Edition my main account on which I am yet to make a character. I know all I lose is 3 days of Beta but I will also be unable to use the character name I prefer as it is already registered on our chosen server on my old account.

There was a time period in the past when transfers were being done .... why they chose then to do it , who the **** knows ... now that everyone has created toons on servers that were newly created and friends are spread out all over the place because servers filled up so damn quickly and they forced people to create toons on particularly newly created servers, they are going to have to allow a time for transfers or for some of us who have old characters on legacy may choose to not play long ... Balmung was locked early as hell ... none of my friends were able to join me. If I'm not allowed the chance to transfer later, then I will not play to long and be danmed if I start all over.

No characters from the Original Version of the game will be transfered only the players who participated in Phase 4 Beta this past weekend will have there characters left in the game...meaning the final phase had no wipe before the games official release.

I don't know what the hell you are talking about ... all characters from V1.0 are being transferred into the new game. Hell, I was playing my toon from V1.0 in Open Beta.

As to the OP ... you are talking about characters transferring form account to account .... THAT I highly doubt will happen .... you better apply that Collectors Edition code to your account that you have your Open Beta toon on .... that would be your best bet ... or apply the collectors addition to your V1.0 account ... either way, thats the only way either of your accounts will get the bonuses from having the CE. Character transfers from account to account is something I've never heard of any MMO doing in the past.

Mashr2010
20th Aug 2013, 17:31
As DrasticMeat said, to any knowledge given out so far, there won't be an ability to transfer characters from service account to another service account. You will want to apply the Collector's Edition to the account you want to use as your main.

20th Aug 2013, 18:05
Ok, thanx for the input guys. I thought that would be the case but thought I'd ask just in case :) I will just start over on my Collectors Edition account & come up with a variation of my character name. I only lose 3 days beta test advancement which is no big deal. With all the cross class stuff to do, going to be low level a lot.

I was wondering how much your attributes (STR, INT, etc) matter for a character. Is it better to make 2 characters and focus one on magic stats and the other on physical? For example if I put everything into INT for a arcanist but later on want to make a pugilist on the same character would I be a gimped pugilist?

The character classes do not share attribute points. So, going from your example, when you put points in as an Arcanist and then switch to Pugilist, the Pugilist will have their own set of points. The racial differences in stats are minor, so you might be a little lower at the start but in the long run it won't make much difference. So, in short, no. Making two classes on the same character will not gimp any of the other classes. Jobs however, if they stem from the same base class, say Scholar and Summoner how they both come from Arcanist, you will have to choose your stats specifically for one or the other as the points are shared between those.

I made a character on Saturday the 17th, during the open beta period, and explored the game a little. With the official start date soon arriving, a concern / question popped into my head;

When playing any storyline game, such as this, I prefer to start it fresh, with everything newly happening before my eyes in one nice continued gameplay. I much prefer it when everything remains fresh in my mind during progression, not to mention I could freely repeat storyline videos, game text, and suggested player tips / general information.

During the beta, I just wanted a quick glance at the game, and, as such, only got my character to level 3 ( error 3102 didn't help much either ) With all that said - I'd prefer not to log onto my level 3 character and pick up from where I left off ( not like they had any description of important items or sufficient amount of money regardless )

If I delete my current level 3 character on my preferred gaming server I am currently hosted on, will I
1) Be able to instantly re-make that character, on that same server / realm, free of any fear from the warning message "You are not allowed to make more characters on this server", resulting in me getting pushed out of the server my friends are located on?
2) Be able to use the exact same First Name and Last Name? As a result of the character being previously deleted, I imagine the name should instantly become available to me for repeated use, unless there is going to be some description of a cleansing period or deletion pool I have to wait out.
3) If I do in fact delete my first created character, am I losing any rewards / benefits to playing a "First Created Character"? - With this, I mean stuff along the lines of items and currency.

If I have reasons to believe that doing this would end up being more trouble than its worth - then I would sooner save myself the aggravation, and just make another character, on a completely different server, and, upon completion of everything my level 3 managed, switch back, and just continue, having re-visited previous endeavors.

Going with my experience from previous titles, characters are actually not fully deleted. You can remove your character and I think it can be restored in about 6 months... With that in mind you will not be able to create a character with the same name.

MarkusLazardakus
22nd Aug 2013, 20:14
This sounds most unfortunate - however manageable - as I said, this problem I've encountered will most likely result with the creation of another character on another server / realm, using the same model as the level 3 character ( not necessary ) - then re-visiting all the starter stuff (a backup plan is to try calling someone or sending a ticket of some description, and see if I cant find another "work around"). A bit of a pain, but, my choice afterall if it’s worth doing it or not.

Thank you, Moosequest, for your time in responding to my question, and also for sharing your previous gaming experiences and knowledge with me - here's hoping more will follow, and, no disrespect intended, hopefully they'll provide me with an answer or solution that not only brings feelings of relief, but also leads to avoiding such tedious work :P

Also - While I understand what you say about Characters not being fully deleted when they are, in fact, deleted, World of Warcraft worked very much the same way as to what you just described, however with 1 variance.

I once deleted a Blood Elf Character with a name I liked, then made an Undead Character, sharing that same name, only to later regret my decision. I then deleted the new Undead Character, and made a ticket to have the Blood Elf with the same name restored - They wouldn't put the Blood Elf Character back onto my account until all characters listed on the realm page sharing the same name, were deleted, AND - when I was talking with the Employee, he asked WHICH CHARACTER ( since there were 2 characters with the same name in their "Deleted Pool Records" that I wanted to restore. Perhaps in W.O.W only, names of the dead / deleted, do not affect the soon to be living / existing.

If I'm lucky, Final Fantasy 14 and World of Warcraft will both possess this Technical Design.

Even if this fourm doesnt result in a solid answer - I will make a character on a random server, only to delete it right away, so I can test to see if I can name another character the same thing - this will be my safe-test

As of right now, there has been no announcements for the implementation of a Name Change service. In order to change the name, you would need to create a new character. Maybe something down the line will come up, but for the time being that's the case. Sorry D:

If you transfer your character to a server where someone already has the name in use, you will be forced to change it then however.

I just entered in the pre-order code of FFXIV: ARR on my PS3 and started the whole linking process. Then I get to a part where it says "You will also be unable to import characters created during FINAL FANTASY XIV Version 1.0, the beta test, or early access." Does this mean that any character I create now will be gone? What about the bonus pre-order stuff?

Obviously, I can't continue unless I say "Next", but I'm really worried about this. Any suggestions?

I know if you don't get into EA cause of early access problems 3 days isn't a great lost really it don't take long to level. But yes it is very frustrating. But once Launch Day starts I believe all you will have to enter is the Game Registration Code on this site or another site. So I hope people don't give up cause they cant play for 3 days,

Thanks everyone! I've been a big FF fan for about 10 years and was bummed when 1.0 didn't go over well. I just didn't want to give myself a bad start to this because I was confused with the wording. ^^

FFINALLY got everything downloaded, installed, and downloaded again. Stayed up all night to get back into the world... Now I am faced with "Unable to update the Group NA/EU character lists" as soon as I hit start (PS3). I have the choice to join a world, but they are all JP and Group NA/EU just stays at "obtaining the World list."
I know that there are probably a TON of people trying to join right now, but I have a character already started on Faerie, and was really looking forward to continuing with that character.
Under "world" "New Character" I have a "connection Kujata Good" but I don't want to be on Kujata, nor do I want to join a JP server and face problems later on. Should I just go to bed and wait a while for less activity and hope the servers will be able to handle me coming online, or should I start over and try out a JP server? (I am in NA)
Is this a problem that is widespread because of the huge amount of activity, or do I have a problem with my account? I didn't have any issues with the Beta.
Any pointers are greatly appreciated!

Should we back out and keep trying, or stay on the loading page and wait? I know it is trying to process ridiculous amounts of requests right now, and I saw something earlier about not swamping the log-in by backing out and trying again, but the error message mentioned in that post was not the same as what I am showing. I don't want to make this last longer/cause problems for other players, but I also don't want to stick around for a few hours on a loading screen that has already told me it cannot access the information I want...

After backtracking and trying again I did not receive the error message, but I am still looking at "obtaining the World list" under NA/EU.

I specifically chose Faerie because of the low traffic it showed in Beta. These are the issues I like to avoid.

I know that part of any new MMO is patience, and I also know they can't make up for lost playing time, especially when it has been as highly anticipated as this. I am hoping from a customer service standpoint that they will at least offer something in-game, once we DO get access, for those of us that were supposed to have early access. Experience multiplier, special items, something.

Same thing happened to me but i kept on logging out then back in and eventually it let me log in with my character from the beta version. Now on the shiva world and don't plan on leaving due to not getting back in:nut:

I was wondering if it would be better to keep trying or to just let it be due to the congestion.... Alas now the sun is up and I should probably go to bed, but I really really wanted to at least walk around a bit :( Hopefully when I wake up this will be resolved and I will be able to log on.

I've created a character and am also waiting for NA/EU servers to be obtained. I see in the right-hand corner "Connection: None". Is this to be expected from someone who has not ever played Beta/selected a world, or should I be seeing something else and perhaps action is needed on my end. I also have not seen anything as far as subscribing yet

Same issue, didn't bother to wake my boyfriend up because he went to sleep just so he could get to play faster. Wow, so this is what "early access" means. I should have just gone to sleep too but I wanted a sliver of a chance to get a little play in before work. Now its time to make breakfast, yaaay.

point of open beta and beta is to fix bugs. point of early access is just the same as open beta. but at least they took it down right away when they found out something was wrong with the duty finder which you need for leveling passed 20, it's what you pay for.

You can. I don't have it open in front of me so I don't remember exactly the steps I took... I think you have to be in-game, press start, open the Character Settings screen, and then there is an option for inversion on the camera angle. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, but at least you know it can be done.

Seems if you create 8 characters and delete them you are no longer allowed to play the game. I created characters to see the classes to find which one I wanted to start as. Now I have 0 characters and it says I am not able to create anymore characters.

"Your current service account does not allow for the creation of anymore characters on this world." Error 3035.

I don't have any characters on any worlds...

25th Aug 2013, 04:36
In regards to the extremely high populated servers, I think character migration from high-pop to low/mid-pop would maybe help.

I know I would do it in a heart-beat. I wanted to play on Gilgamesh with my cousins and friends, but only one friend and I have managed to get on.

I've already put a good amount of time into my character, so it would suck if I had to completely restart.


Then again, it seems like SE has its hands full with enough problems, and they probably don't have time for this kind of stuff right now...

Just a suggestion, though.

Hilzarie
25th Aug 2013, 07:09
I think I read somewhere that there would be a fee for character migration. However, they are doing maintenance right now to beef up the servers so more people will be able to join the existing servers, so your friends and cousins should be able to meet up with you when they come back up in three hours.

I don't know where to report bugs so I thought I would do it here.

So when creating a character you can choose "Name Day" and on "Third Umbral Moon"

the numbers in parentheses is wrong. Starting at 6/7 it goes wrong. 6/8 is 6/7 and everything after that is all wrong.

Hi, I have early access to the game, but I have a question. I want to play with my boyfriend, but he will play next month , so I just wanted to try other chars. My plan was to create one, and then erase it and create the one that will play with my boyfriend, and see wich world we will play (because other friends maybe will play too ) , so ... If I do that, my items that I got from the pre order (the Cait Sith Doll Minion and Mog Cap ) , would I be able to get them in the other new char that I create if I don't take them out of the moogle mail? Or at least they can be trade if I stay in the same world?

I hope anyone can be tell me anything, thanks and have a nice day!

25th Aug 2013, 22:14
I'm pretty sure every character you make will automatically get the pre-order bonus items. The same will apply if you redeem the bonus content from the collector edition. That's how it is on all the other mmo's I have played so doubt this will be different.

So what i'm saying the bonus content is account bound and not bound to just one character.

OK,

After waiting for 8 hours for Gilgamesh to become unlocked one thing I want to know is will there be FREE character transfers when these issues are resolved? 8 hours I'd be at least level 15 by now instead of watching a bunch of porn while waiting for Gilgamesh to open so I can play with my IRL friends.

OK and all laughter aside now I have been trying to create a temporary toon on another server to begin enjoying this game I have waited a long time for yet I keep getting a 3035 error saying I cannot create anymore toons. I have none yet so I fail to see how I have too many.

Reading through the forums I see Square Enix is not responding to anything so Helpful information would be appreciated

Kusorai
26th Aug 2013, 06:06
No, there will be a fee to transfer characters.

Character transfers won't be available until further notice for us normal players.
For those who had FF XIV 1.0 they will get transfers for a fee 2-3 weeks after launch.

Alcoholicrage
26th Aug 2013, 06:09
So in order to use my early access I have to make a character on a different server from my friends because they didn't anticipate this many people wanting to join. Then charge me to transfer later when they fix the problems so I can finally be happy playing with them?

Sounds a lot like Blizzard Entertainment.......

What about the 3035 problem so I can actually do more than see my toon sit there waiting for a realm to open up

I'm even willing to scrap my first character in a few days and make a new one where my friends are. But I can't make any toons right now.

I LOVED FFXI and have been dying for this to be released. WoW is ****, has been for a while. So my patience will last for a few weeks. Just wish I was on right now though

same for US servers maybe. I got in and got the code 3035. This account does not allow to create anymore characters on this server (not in those words exactly but close.) But tried again and now i have the loading wheel in the bottom right corner loading away for about 20+ min now. This is my first character created. I finally got through all the problems people are going through. I just waited for the email and continued my day. Might do the same for this situation.

TheRealKraggy
26th Aug 2013, 19:25
I 'get' that servers are heavily loaded and SE have failed to deploy hardware and software capable of surviving the load, but if you already have characters on one you should be allowed to create another on the same account .. after all you can't play them both at once so server load isn't affected in the slightest!

I just refreshed the list, 10 NA servers are open, the others and all EU ones are locked.

Look at the big picture. Games at launch that created servers also suffered the downfall of the rush after a month or so. TerA and SWTOR for example. Created more servers, server population declined, people complained for low pop servers. People left game, now those games have low pop/empty servers. So if they (Square Enix) stays with current infrastructure, it will force players to move/ create onto other servers. Money is saved, but they have to deal with the customer base that is complaining that they cannot play with friends. Just looking at it from a possible PoV. The people who complain about this is a minority so it may not affect the bottom dollar for SE. Just a thought

Abelkoran
26th Aug 2013, 19:48
I don't know if they care or not. The sure thing is they're handling this in the worst way they can. No communication on a game that already failed on its first release. I'm not fortune teller, but I can say without taking too much risk that if this goes on, this game will fail again, and this time there will be no coming back.

Allowing no server queue is maybe, IMO, the most idiotic thing they could have done. Because what it means is simple. If you can log in in the middle of the afternoon and stay that way, forever, good for you. If you can't, because let's say, you have to go to work, to school, attend to your children, don't bother trying, you won't log in. Ever.

That's what happened for my early release and for many others as I could see on those forums. Well early release. Not really, I played for about 1 hour in the 3 days we were supposed to have. So let's say it was a "I read a lot of forum threads" release.

It frustrating, and it's plain idiotic, either you nlook at it from our view, or theirs. They're just digging their own grave. A deep grave.

Square looking to make money on server transfers already??????

Summertime
26th Aug 2013, 20:13
It is the same with the NA servers and you are even lucky if you can log onto a server that you have made a character already on. The servers are full because they are limiting how many people can be logged on at a time. But yet there is not automatic AFK disconnect so people are just staying connected while sleeping, at work, or at school. This ensures that they are allowed to play while those of us that log off never get back on. Hopefully they will realize that there needs to be a time out when a person is AFK so that more people can play.

TheRealKraggy
26th Aug 2013, 21:22
Look at the big picture
The big picture is SE failed abysmally with 1.0 and spent the last three years trying to recover. They now re-launch and have massive problems handling the load .. they'll not get a third chance.

I know all MMO launches have problems but given the history here SE HAD to make sure this was smooth, or else their attempted comeback is dead in the water and this is one of the worst I've experienced: LOTRO, Rift, GW2. Those all had problems to some extent but this game is IMO the worst, due to the huge number of hours it's been down and the even more where a large number (the majority?) of those who have paid to play can't.

I fear that there are so many people now disaffected with this sorry state of affairs, and the horrible PR that goes with it, mean V2 will die like V1, sadly because it's a far, far better game than V1 but this dreadful re-launch is going to kill it off I fear.

It really bugs me how the JP system is largely unaffected, only the few servers locked out days ago remain so and SE have a policy on that (no idea what).

Why is it only the NA/EU server farm is hit?

I might very well be totally misunderstanding this, but is there a reason to even have a second toon if you can level every class on a single character?

I'm in the same situation. Finished off work early, ran down and picked up my pre-order, went to the store and bought a big bag of snacks and drinks to be enjoyed whilst playing the game...

I know bad things can happen during launch but it's bloody 2013, not 2004 when mmorpgs were still something "new" and most developers hadn't had time to learn from other developers' mistakes from launch day and such. These days developers should look back and learn from others mistakes and build upon it to prevent these bad things from happening during their own launch.. Pretty much common sense, least for us normal people...

Also playing as a different race will have slightly different benefits to certain job roles because of the starting stats, for example my Mi'qote Keeper of the Moon is the best base for the conjurer class. Yes the difference is minimal but to some those few points on INT or MND can make the difference.

there is suppose to be a "mirror" or "barber shop" feature in the 2.1 patch that will allow players to change their character image. Im not sure if it will allow you to change just facial features or the entire toon, but if they follow thru, you should be able to at least get a different look;)

why can't i go into cerebus with my second character?

Because the standard subscription only allows 1 character per server (up to 8 servers). The advanced sub allows multiple characters on the same server.

Not knowing what error or other response you're getting when you try it's kind of hard to divine a reason.

Since his post is content-free it's impossible to know, but his words imply he managed to create one .. how would that be possible given the restriction you correctly mention.

My reply was just assuming they were trying to use a 2nd character on the same server as their 1st.
If that's not the case it could just be the new character creation restrictions that are currently in place.

Okay, is "go into" made me think he'd created one but couldn't log in, seeing the subject mentioned creation I now realise he's gone through the creation process and only right at the end has found he's not being allowed to create it on the server in the first place.

This prospect has really put me off the game as I enjoy having two characters who look different, but there really isn't any point in bothering if the above is true.
Explain this to me ...

You like having two character, me too, so much so I have two accounts so I can play them together sometimes. The fact you CAN max everything on one character doesn't means you HAVE TO, so why do you then say you're put off the game because of an OPTION you don't have to make use of?

In my case, one character becomes my gatherer while the other is the crafter. Yes, one alone could do it, but in FFXI I had two Tarutaru and they became Lalafel in XIV, I play the game how I want to (as far as it lets me), the fact there are other paths I could take that are less appealing doesn't make me pause for a second enjoying it the way I am.

This is what these forums should be about and all the technical issues etc should be directed to the Lodestone forums so the Devs 'may' actually see it.

I don't mind helping out with technical queries but there are constantly new posts about stuff that has already been posted, does no-one know how to use the search function? lol.

eeeyup.

And search function? What's that? I definitely do not know what that is even though there is a huge search box at the top right of the page with a magnifying glass button that looks like a search function, therefore I will ask the same question that already exists in many other threads :lol: ... =_=
