    No i wont have a Chr from 1.0 . I Quit July 2011 just after Patch 1.20b or something like that it was when they added auto attack and gimped Lancer . I will be starting fresh and clean on a noob server . Reasons why i like to get a crafting skill maxed out along with a DD or Mage ( hate tanking not really ) And the new servers will set up players who have played , new players , or new players an start with vets . I do this because the market will not be flooded with level 50 crafters so making gil will be better in the long run. I wish i could get my Dusk Elf back but i deleted him . Had a Hume on Kashuan Server but left him at lvl 20. And me and the wife are going to come back as Methra err Ma'Quota .... the cat people lol

    If you're not willing to participate in an Alpha for those reasons, then you are not going in with the right understanding of why you're there. The focus of an Alpha is testing, not playing. It's not about "experiencing more of the content and getting to keep your progress".

    The purpose of alpha testing is to help them test the hardware, the software and such to make sure it can hold up under load, things don't break, servers don't crash, etc.

    The same, really, is true of Beta. "Alpha Testing" and "Beta Testing" aren't some snazzy-sounding buzzwords dreamt up in some Marketing Dept. brainstorming session. They're not euphemisms for "free trial!". They're long-standing terms that are a very well defined, and very important part of any software development cycle.

    Many people don't realize that, go in with ignorantly unrealistic expectations, and then complain about it being an "unfinished" game, or a "subpar experience". It's usually the same people who seem to think agreeing to an NDA and not leaking info is "just a suggestion" or an informal request to be freely ignored. That is until they're banned for it and then cry "travesty!" at being "treated so unfairly".

    It's a problem that plagues MMORPGs. People treating Alphas/Betas as "free previews/trials" instead of what they're supposed to be. An awful lot of people issued invites for Alphas - and Betas for that matter - have no business anywhere near one.

    the butthurt is strong in this one

    The amount of things they are changing and adding in beta keeps growing, as we've seen from NDA breaking posters here the alpha doesnt always give the best impression  (as its not the full game), you may enjoy ARR more from beta onwards.

    Does this look legit to you?

     

    This e-mail has been sent to the registered e-mail address of a Square Enix account holder who has applied to become an alpha tester for FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.
    Please delete this e-mail if you do not recall submitting an application.
    ==========
    Thank you for your application and your interest in FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn. It is our pleasure to inform you that you have been selected for the role of Alpha Tester. We look forward to your assistance during the testing process. Please note that a separate selection process will be conducted to recruit beta testers.

    ==========

    - To alpha testers
    Thank you for applying to participate in the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Alpha Test.

    The operation of an MMORPG requires various kinds of servers, such as the game server, chat server, and login server. The objective of this alpha test is to simulate the same levels of stress that our servers must bear once official service commences. Needless to say, the development team alone cannot conduct tests of such magnitude. That is why we must turn to you, our players, to help us ensure the game's stability upon release.
    Compared to the forthcoming beta, there is relatively little content to enjoy in the alpha. Nevertheless, it is a very important first step in preparation for the release of A Realm Reborn. I hope that you all enjoy yourselves, and with your feedback we will continue in our endeavor to provide an online experience worthy of bearing the title FINAL FANTASY.

    An Inactive ID is still a character made before September 30th. Having the ID on the account is what is required, not having it active or Legacy. Just the Content ID.
