Yoshi is a great man. He deserves my respect and my money.
I will stick to FFXIV through the harsh times and give it a fair chance to make things right.

Naoki Yoshida every mmo launch has problems i been playing for 2 decades, there wasnt one mmo that had a perfect launch, maybe a good launch with less problems but still disconnects or server offline or whatever shit happens when thousands of people try to log in.
In a month no one will talk about this and keep playing as it never happend.I realy like this man, he is honest, he cares, he loves gaming, and he loves what he does.Give this man some credit, i am 1000% sure hhe and his team is working his ass off to fix everything.
just watched the tube vid and it broke my hearth to see a lead developer ccrying.+10 for this man and i will support him untill the end.
I dont know why I am surprised at all of you complaining that you haven't gotten to play because of server issues at launch. Like how many MMOs have you played? How many of them at launch were 100% perfect, good to go, no problems at all?
Grow up, a few hours to a few days max and you will be able to play. Yeah it sucks you miss your head start and whatever but to rip into a game/company for that is childish at best.
"Blah blah blah I paid money to be able to play, I should get free time." No, you shouldn't get any free time. It is hard to predict how servers will react to a flood and very very few can withstand the amount of numbers pouring into them right now. Take a chill pill and you will forget about this in a month when your sub runs out.
Naoki Yoshida is a PHENOM in the gaming industry and that is putting it lightly. The reason I got interested in this game in the first place was him, and I was only looking at it from a business case prospective. but if you have been following him and how unorthodox yet intelligent he is, you will begin to respect the man.
I can only say what he made is truly a master piece of MMORPG that we will remember him 10 years later like we remembered his old game bomber man.
Yoshi has really balanced this game well. For example, my first class I just did the quest tredmill while I worked on the main storyline, but when I went to level my 2nd class I did it totally different. I ran around doing the fate's and hunting log.
Its really nice how you can level different ways with different classes, or level the same way. It's really up to you. I feel like i'll be playing this one as much as I did ffxi.
The fact that its sub based with no cash shop + the holy trinity + variety of ways to level + the genious of the armory system being able to set up sets for all the different classes and store them. Yep all those things is awesome in my book, and I've not gotten that much freedom in any other mmo I've played.
I'll definatly be giving this game the time, cause I know down the road the server issue will be a thing of the past and it will just get better all round.
Great job to Yoshi and hes crew, the login issues is only a minor set back, this game is worth the wait to get in for those that are unfortunate atm. Just give it time, all will end well i'm sure of that
Next week sees an increase in capacity, means we've still got the mini game of Start>Character Select>Log in>Server Full(1017)>rinse & repeat until then *sigh*. It's a real shame because it's one of the best engines I've ever played, the game play, while nothing new is solid and loads of fun, it's a thoroughly charming world. It's a fantastic game just a real shame about the server problems.
They really do need to implement that AFK kick ASAP if they want to decrease the bad press.
Nobody tell the QQ squad that they already got an advance on their free game time. I know that I preordered with about 10 hours left in the head start and now ive been bumped up to 33 days of in game time.
Willing to bet if the servers are unplayable this week they will fix it again for people who didn't sign up for early access.

This is a relaunch! I honestly think they really didn´t expect this huge interest in the game after all those years of bad press due to Version 1.0.
We will see how it goes after the weekend when the New hardware is up and running.
Both AION and Diablo 3 had insane Queues for weeks and let´s not even start about SW:TOR! where they opened up so many servers that we ended up With over a 100 ghost towns after the first month or two. /shrug
So I really hope SE isn´t going to open up tons of News servers, but instead tries to expand the capacity of the existing 25 NA/EU servers. Tho, the EU data center can use a couple extra new servers. 6 is way too little.
It´s funny how people call this "OMFG LIEK WORST LAUNCH EVUR!!11"
Have you guys already forgotten about the disaster of the Tera EU launch already?
Not only there were lots of crashes, lag, server restarts and even a small rollback, but about 2000 European players that had pre-ordered the collector edition of the game had to wait for almost a whole month to even be able to play because their account system was so screwed up that in their database it looked like we had the access we paid for but the log-in server rejected our credentials.
It took them almost a whole month to fix and by the time we managed to play everyone was max level and doing endgame content while we had missed the whole launch.
To crown this beautiful moment, we did not even get our collector edition items because you had to register within a time-frame and because of the server error, our accounts were eventually "resetted" which made us be outside of the promotion time.
We had to wait till the company sold the game rights to the new one to actually get what was rightfully ours.
Let´s not even talk about how for 7 months, every single time a specific event occurred, everyone was victim of a massive amount of lag that made the game completely unplayable.....
Lucky he did not commit suicide, Harakiri maybe ??
So far I love this game even though it's a bit hard to log in
Well, doesn't matter and I suppose they will fix it since this is just the beginning
FFXIV isnt the first game with a bad launch, nor is this the worst launch in MMO history, far from it, the MMO community again like Sharks go into a frenzy at the smallest drop of blood.
The games finally in a semi-stable situation now soon should be nothing but smooth sailing once they finish their data centre upgrade plan.

Get real dude. Any launch you are super hyped for and has issues that keep you from digging in to play is the worst one ever. We are all spoiled, entitled, and allowed to gripe over first world problems. We are soooo lucky man.,
People forget actually that Rift had the SAME issue of full servers and thousands of people who could not play. The DIFFERENCE is how they responded....they created multiple servers every hour until the situation was fixed. They merged servers later to make up for it.

Truly, this game is just awesome. My friend and I are hopelessly addicted to it. We piss and moan that we can't login, but it doesn't even matter because we are thrilled that this game exists, that our new addiction is here and it's here to stay for a long while.

The difference is, Trion had a plan. Square Enix...well, i'm not sure if it is lack of planning or lack of ability.
Everything points toward lack of ability.
