FFXIV RR: Sales suspended

by manylaughs on August 31, 2013


Wow! Guess a lot of people were waiting for a new MMO to play. I was going to download Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and play it this weekend, but here’s the message from Square Enix:

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play. As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN’s digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play. We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes. 

Yeah, that’s a bit of a disappointment, but good for them. It’s an indication a lot of gamers needed a new MMO, but beyond that it means there’s still strong support for the Final Fantasy franchise.

From all reports they’ve fixed most of the problems with this game, so it’s worthwhile to be patient and buy it as soon as possible.

Hope to see you in the game, soon.

The game is good, and it is packed with players for sure. It feels like you are literally fighting over mobs to kill in the zones even with quick respawns. They have quite a bit of servers, but mostly it seems that you get lockouts due to high population. I stated on Tiamat at first not knowing it was an Asian server, but now have rerolled on Moogle. That is a Euro / NA server. If you get on Moogle, my Character name is “Pink Princess” there.

The game has fixed all of the issues it had last time around. The UI is good, the gamepad support is also good. The towns are no so needlessly large and confusing, and there is a lot to do out in the world unlike last time. It even has a good group finder / raid group finder command. Overall, I think it is quite good. Now, I can not say that the end game is perfect as I am not there yet, but as for now, it looks worthwhile to play for at least a few months.

Hope to see you on Moogle!

I’ll look for you if I can ever get the game via download. : )

I’m sure this will only go on for another day or so. I’m looking forward to playing it.
