    It is open beta now. Character are kept.

    This is Beta phase 4, which could be considered an "open" beta because it is available to more people and can easily be signed up for.  Open beta does not necessarily mean "No NDA" from what I understand.  Though I could be wrong.

    Its not open beta untill they allow everyone in.. right now only those who had it before are allowed in.

    It's been stated tomorrow it will be open to all... the 17th.  I just hope they open it at 5am.  I've already got the client installed, just need a valid beta account now.

    I'm not sure they ever really called it open beta, it's beta phase 4 and they are letting everyone in the 17th. NDA is still there because the game isn't technically released, and during this phase it is still limited and they don't want anyone posting videos of a game that isn't all there.

    Probably not, but maybe. we'll find out tomorrow.  It'll definitely be dropped come early access though, probably.

    How did you get the client installed? Most I could do was install the launcher. When I fire it up it wants an account, and of course my account is not enabled for beta.

    It's not that they want to hide something, sometimes it's just a legal thing, sometimes they just forgot to drop the NDA. 

    Also 

    1. Tell your friend "You suck at this!"

    2. Pull his chair out from under him

    3.Take the keyboard

    4.???

    I pretty much have the same question, here.

    Same.

    When I go to the link in the launcher it asks for a beta code, but signup is disabled. Do we just have to wait till tomorrow to register/update the client?

    I think so.  Here is the latest twitter post from the devs: For those asking when brand-new users can join in the #FFXIV Beta Phase 4: the registration site is scheduled to launch on Aug. 17th!

    Bullshit. I was in beta phase 2 and 3, yet the I didn't register for phase 4 so I can't play. How ridiculous is it that a OPEN beta had a specific sign-up period 3 weeks PRIOR to the beta and ended 2 weeks before it even began? 

     

     

    Open beta, I guess. Easily signed up for? Bullshit.

    There was a sign-up period for this? I didn't sign up for anything after beta phase 2, missed beta phase 3, and I still got an automatic invite email sent to me about this final phase.

    If you were in the previous beta phases, no need for another registration / sign up. That registration was only for people who WEREN'T in the previous phases.

     

    Download the client and give it a spin. It should be good.
