  Thought i read somewhere that beta phase 4 would be a open beta and would run to August 27 th with no character wipes. I also heard Beta phase 4 would be starting in a few weeks, If this is the case then bascially the game is launching early july, Is this correct?

 

  Also i downloaded the benchmark thing off the website and was just wondering in the graphics in the benchmark demo look the same as when you are in game because they looked dam impressive.

    beta 4 is open beta, i doubt beta 4 will start in july, early aug at best....open betas normally run for about 2 weeks and i doubt they will have much downtime in-between beta4 and Headstart launch.

    Some stuff still won't be implemented in Phase four.  They'll still be working on the battle system and some animations up to release.  In addition it still isn't clear if they are having the voice acting in Phase four or not; the sources I find when it comes to that just mention "when the game releases" despite what some posts are saying on a couple forums.

     

    In addition, they are making it clear that they might wipe all character data in phase four if they find a game breaking bug or exploit.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    Good news!!!!

     

    There's nothing worse than when a game launches and the economy is ruined beyond repair and the devs ignore bugs that have been reported over and over during betas.

    Phase 4 wont' run till the 27th since they're offering early access for pre-order.  Thus it has to end at least a few days before launch to actually have early access.

    how many days are they offering for early access?

    They haven't announced specifics on it yet.  I would guess 3-7 days though.

    The game launches on Aug 26th 0r 7th cant rememeber exactly. Early access is 3-5 days but on a limited basis, not everyone who preorders is guaranteed early access so preorder now, if you wait, you may wait until actual launch

    Any graphical, audio, or gameplay restrictions not seen in other mmos but found in FFXIV can be blamed on one thing.

    Some peaple will probly believe that phase 4 is early access, and treat it that way. Ther's a good chance charcter data will be caried over, so to alot of peaple w/e phase 4 starts will be the official realease for them.

     

    idk how i'll approch phase 4 yet. Maybe i'll craft like mad to get a head start, or level like mad. Or maybe i'll just treat this like a testing period and not worry about getting ahead of official launch. Guss it depends on what we learn about characters carying over.

    I would believe you read wrong. Aug 27 is release day and preordering gets u early access for maybe 12days, if open b eta/phase ran all the way to 27th theres no point in preordering for early access. IMHO following how SE roadmap works, I came to a conclusion that after Phase 3 is all done by June 30th, there will be 2 weeks of nothing for SE to analyze everything. That puts Open beta to maybe starting July 19-23, 26-28, and Aug 2-4. Then Early Access starting Aug 16 would be my guess.

    Phase 4 characters are getting rolled over into launch.
