Is there a single person out there that managed to enter the early access code?

    Just woke up wondering if JP midnight hit and maybe we could get started yet?

    I cant believe how many people forced their codes when they were suppose to wait for the email to do so.   legaly SE doesn't owe you a log in if you forced their website instead of following directions they gave.   If your account is now stuck in another region this could take days of people at the company manually sorting and fixing each account.    You might not even get early access because you did not follow the directions to wait for an email before entering code.  Forcing game mechanics is also close enough to hacking that any judge would obsolve any responiblity of SE to give early access.   It would be your fault, and SE can prove that's why you were not given early access.  Yay!  Those who were last are now going to be first, and those who wanted to be first are now last.  I think I read that somewhere once.

    Or these bad horrible people could cancel their pre order.... and then you the smart and patient one can go pve by yourself.

     

     

    CAREBEAR STARE! 

     

    In other news, i received 1 email from a code i inputted today, one of the ones i didn't cancel on amazon. Maybe that's the issue or maybe it's just luck. but i received an early access email. of course it doesn't work and says invalid region.but you already knew that. Nonetheless maybe ill pre order another and cancel it on thursday night before early access.. worst case scenario. i can play for a few days before i am forced to put one on it, or i decide the game sucks and don't feel like it. ehh right now i am not sure. I did order an xps 8700 and a nice video card.So maybe i'll pve whore it up like a good carebear

    Mine is now showing up on my na.square-enix.com account.

     

    I've had FFXIV active on my service account at square-enix.com/na/ since Beta, but my account at na.square-enix.com showed no registered games until some time in the last couple of hours.

     

    I plugged my 18-digit preorder code from Amazon in earlier in the day (8/20) and got an error thrown back at me, so maybe it did go through, just not in the manner originally intended.

     

    My primary concern is my beta characters showing up when I start playing the game on August 24.   Maybe everybody's is the same way, but the use of two apparently different account systems to keep track of things on SE's end makes me feel uncomfortable about that.

     

    Forcing game mechanics is also close enough to hacking that any judge would obsolve any responiblity of SE to give early access.

    So, people are given conflicting information about being able to register codes beginning on the 20th and waiting for an email that still hasn't come and it crosses your mind that SE should sue players for "hacking" to prove a point ...

    They have disabled it atm. Here is the Twitter msg:

    https://twitter.com/FF_XIV_EN/status/370043930458324992

    We have temporarily suspended the ability to redeem codes on the pre-order site while we continue to investigate the ongoing issues.

  • Bastian_StarBastian_Star KANSAS CITY, MOPosts: 36Member

    I was getting an "invalid code" message for the last couple of days. I was messing with it again this morning, trying to get it to go through and somehow ended up at a different pre order registration page (I'm thinking possibly a work around implemented by SE due to high traffic?). This time I was getting an "error code 3" but when I went to look at my profile the games on there now lol. Very confusing :P

    edit: ok now I'm REALLY lost on this....my SE account profile page always said "US" and now it says "EU" WTH!!?

  • ArskaaaArskaaa KauhajokiPosts: 842Member Uncommon
    Still no code:/ they better hurry... man if they fail tis i gonna be pissed.
  • DignaDigna City, CTPosts: 2,014Member Uncommon

    I hadn't caught the twitter messae about the redemption bieng disabled so I tried it.

    You can enter the code and choose the platform but click the 'redeem' button.

     

    I am sure whole hordes of people are working on these things and they will be fixed in due course.

    Even though my code didn't seem to work, on my profile it also once again finally says that Realm Reborn is registered. However, it shows up as PC instead of PS3..... Hope this won't be a problem

    I hope this will shed some light: I bought the game through Green Man Gaming in June. I immediately received a mail from GMG with the serial key and the instructions. In this mail there was a link to a Square Enix page where I could insert my e-mail address so they could notify me about the pre-order early access and items. I went to Square Enix web site, logged in on my previously account and register the GMG game key. The FFXIV ARR game logo appears on my account as an activated game.

    This morning I received a e-mail from Square Enix about the early code. They've sent me a new code and a link to register it. I got the confirmation that I've registered the early access and the pre-order items. It's done.

     

    Interesting. I did the exact same think but I was never emailed any new code...

  • The_emberThe_ember SheffieldPosts: 51Member

    So if  you preordered through SE, are you just automatically registered for EA?

     

    Weirdly I now have two registered FFIV's on my account... one from SE and another from an Amazon preorder code I entered but later cancelled...

    Like you, I never got past the dreaded Error 3 warning.  I got up early this morning to try to get past the site's heavy volume, only to find I'm still stuck at Error 3. 

    However, as of 5:00am today I had no game registered.  As of 6:30am today suddenly FFXIV:ARR appeared in My Profile on the SE site as a registered game.  Go figure.

     

    For the record, I'm located in North America, have the PC version, and purchased the digital download directly from SE.

    exact same scenario here. Still can't register the game manually but the game appears in my profile as registered.

    I am in same boat error 3 still but account now shows to be register.  I also bought from SE.  Hard to believe this error 3 is still showing and taking this long to fix hope this isn't going to be major launch problems too later.

    Actually that seems to be another problem that they are trying to sort out. The problems thus far seem to be:

    Invalid Codes

    People not getting 20 digit code after using Early Access code (20 digit code is supposed to be mailed after you enter the 18 digit Early Access code, and is what gives you the Pre-order items.)

    No confirmation if Code worked (at least without going into Profile)

    ARR taking it upon itself to unregister itself, then magically re-registering itself

    PS3 codes flagging account as PC

    NA players getting EU Early access codes

    NA players getting 20 digit Pre-order item codes that get Region errors

     

    Those seem to be the most common from what I see on beta forums.

    After reading this: http://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/1kqpcc/preorder_site_not_currently_working_as_intended/

    I feel like the live chat rep told me a bold face lie.

    How do they even have these problems ? This shit is all so convoluted. So 1.0 was unfinished, 2.0 is a great game, but crippled by extremely poor planning for launch ?

     

    Why are there so many codes, so many ways to register, so little information on how to do it, and so many friggin account pages ?

     

    If they couldn't handle multiple outlets for their game, they shouldn't have set it up to be sold through places like Amazon and Gamestop..etc

     

    The overwhelming feeling of being second class to the Japanese customers is getting very frustrating too (now I know how EU players feel)

     

    (I'm one of those people that is "registered" as an EU customer..despite being NA and using an 18 digit code..that was repeatedly sent back with Error 3 messages)

    Did they send you the EA emails? Or did you just enter your product code from the order confirmation email?

  • AngelxxAngelxx forgottenPosts: 81Member
    I didn't get any emails we were supposed to get on the 20. I've just entered the 18 digit Early Access code Amazon sent me after purchase, that was the only code I had (I had no 20 digit code some other people did). After entering it on this site http://preorder.eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/, they gave me the Promotion Code (12 digits only). I had to redeem this code on my Playstation Network and the download started.

    The rep pretty much was telling a bold face lie. A friend of mine that will be playing on Balmung had to point it out to me. She said if I was getting error 3 message to keep trying. After about 25+ tries it finally redeemed. Was also fortunate enough to get the NA code and not stuck with a EU code like some folks.

    B1 to B3 went so well. But so far everything after it has been nothing but problematic.  I really hope they get it together. Because once you lose the people. It is very hard to get them back. ARR was their second chance. You piss people off anymore and there won't be a third chance.

    This is the page you should see after the code works.

    You probably won't have access to that stuff till your box arrives. If it's digital download not a clue.
