#11951697 Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn - Out Now on PS3 & PS4 - 4/11: PS3-to-P...

Got my HA Book in just our second clear.  All I need now for BiS is the damned t7 choker (ignore the HA circlet, it's a glamour).  That thing is the bane of my existence, since I've never seen it on this char but it's dropped 4 weeks in a row in my alt group.

Finally downed t9 last night.  Had so many personnel and scheduling issues with my static, I knew that once we finally stabilized we'd be able to beat it.  Lo and behold, we finally get a stable second tank and beat it the very same week.  Feels good.

That's Ishgard, which would put you on one of the high areas in Coerthas.

Yeah I'm really sorry about the deadline guys. Got a newborn at home so I'm not exactly with it at all times :P

 

Unacceptable.  You must devote yourself totally to Madden.

 

Oh, hey guys.  :wave:

Doing 400,000,000 fates which constitute hitting a mob once before it dies on every single class doesnt count as a "ton of content", if anything its broken content.

 

Once they add PvP and housing and such they will have a leg to stand on.

 

But right now the game is pretty much two instances~ and 2 raids @ max level Plus some interesting crafting stuff

 

1-49 is completely broken (outside of the first playthrough in which its not terrible because you have stuff to do) 

 

Not saying its a bad game because its not, but until the major patch gets here its flawed

 

I'm afraid you're the one without a leg to stand on.  Back when the game had major stability issues at launch, your grousing made sense and you had a legitimate point.  Now that the game is stable, it just comes off as being a sourpuss.  If you're not finding enough content in this game to entertain you, the problem might be with you, not the game.

Yeah, I have no idea what you're talking about.  There is more than enough to do in the game, with more on the way.  I've met so many great people and had so much fun, I wouldn't change a thing.

Just did the Garuda fight.  Was able to beat it with only two wipes despite nobody in my PUG having done it before.  Coolest battle in the game so far, the music was amazing.

Sooner they either nerf FATEs or buff dungeon XP, the better.

 

I just had a party wipe like 5 times on the final boss of Cutter's Cry (which is an incredibly easy boss) despite the fact that I explained the mechanic to them patiently every single time.  FATEs teach people to just stand in one spot and mash one button, and they get to real content and that's all they know.  It's sad.

SE closed my support ticket (which was assistance with the software token and my account), then posts a notice regading RMT and how many spammer's accounts were hacked, and encourages the use of the security token. #facepalm

 

I encourage the use of one as well.  It's an extra few seconds every time you log in, it's definitely worth it.

Then had another guy who was just terrible and would watch the videos FOREVER (who we stopped waiting for)

 

This is why I'm waiting to clear these dungeons with friends.  Not so they won't watch the cutscenes, but so they CAN.  Yes, S-E should not have put so many cutscenes in the middle of dungeons, but people who belittle players who want to experience the story of the game are absolutely toxic for the community.  Yes, it's frustrating to wait for people, but if you don't want to then you should find an endgame guild which is farming the dungeon rather than using the duty finder where you're almost guaranteed to be paired with at least one person who is running it for the first time.

I mean its a "fantasy" game, and you have people riding around on GIGANORMOUS black metal robot machine thingys

 

Holy crap.  You haven't played much Final Fantasy, have you?  Setting aside whether or not they look good (I personally think they do, but it's a matter of taste of course) Magitek Armor is iconic.

 

I do kind of wish they'd been a bit harder to acquire, since going forward you're going to see them everywhere, which kind of makes it a bit less cool when you see one.

Now the early access period ends, is the server status any better? I'm holding until the server is ready to redeem my key so that I don't waste my subscription in queuing - I can only play 1 - 1.5 hours per day during weekdays. In the past several days half of that time was spent on waiting. 

 

I'd like to know the status tonight, a Friday evening before the long weekend. Hope things get better. 

 

To my eye, it's getting better, but it's still not where it needs to be yet.  I logged in at around 3:30 EST yesterday and while I didn't get in right away, it took less than 5 minutes.  Later on I had to restart after I lost internet, and I got straight into a queue.

 

That was a Thursday afternoon/evening though, so I fully expect there to be more traffic tonight and over a 3-day weekend.

Was just able to get in! Parked myself at the inn in Limsa. I'll probably try and play again tomorrow night depending on how stable things are by then. :)

 

I got booted just now.  YOU TOOK MY MOTHERTRUCKING SPOT!

They should change the victory fanfare to the login sound.  :D

There will never ever be another triple A launch this bad in our lifetimes 

 

This has to be parody at this point, right?
