Originally posted by bizzy2010 Are we truly to believe that the servers are really in the USA when the Maintenance is best suited for Japanense players times? I find it unacceptable that during prime time the servers are down for Maintenance. I don't give a damn if it's a Japanense game, i paid american dollars to play this game on american severs, not japanese. For both latency etc.. Nonetheless this is the most inconvenient time for people who paid american dollars to play a game in America. You can't even mention anything negative on the official forums without the fanboy brigade denouncing it's a JAPANESE GAME.. So where on the box did it say, be aware this is a Japanese game?
Actually they went down at a good time for Europe (midnight GMT) maybe its a European game.
Get a grip, the login and lobby servers are global across 3 continents and with about 12 time zones inside that, some one was going to be pissed. This time its the American players, your american dollars are worth no more than any other currency in terms of value per sub..
You obviously never played Final Fantasy XI, with its 36 and 48 hour maintenances for content updates. Relax, learn a bit of patience after this the login problems will be reduced and that is better for everyone than a half day of errors logging in.

I cant deny this isnt amusing to me. Welcome to the rest of the world. We are used to getting down time in OUR prime times.
Edit : not to mention, maintainance or not getting on because the servers are full, what's the difference anyway. If you can tell the difference I have even less sympathy for you, the you where part of the problem, why the servers where full 24/7
=-D Only on a forum can optimism be called bad and pessimism the good thing =-D Welcome to the internet and forums.
Someone, somewhere is going to inevitably wind up getting shafted. For EQ2 it's primarily the EU guys that get it. For Vanguard, it's EU and the poor lads Down Under that are constantly getting it. With FF-XIV, it's just our turn.
Play Rift or something else on patch day and be happy that they're working on fixing the issues. I for one quit playing on launch day just because I can't stay logged in.
Currently playing SWTOR and it's MUCH better than it was at launch.

@ OP, you're an idiot.
OP deserves a permanent ban from FFXIV for this thread.
This is coming from someone who just got home from 12 hours of school and would love to play for a few hours to wind down, but I am glad they are doing what they are doing. And because of when they are doing it, it makes it more likely that the downtime wont get extended into when i get home from work and school tomorrow.
Originally posted by geldonyetich Actually, I do find that a little odd. 5pm/8pm is prime time. Even noon would be better than that. Couldn't they find a maintenance window that's square on 5pm-8pm for the Pacific or Atlantic ocean? (But then, I suppose people in Hawaii or Greenalnd would complain, hmm?)
Who cares when they do it? All we care is that they make the game playable.
Finally a game that don't do server maintenance during European play times where between Asia and Europe the greater population is anyway. All the years of playing MMOs when the maintenance was during day time I don't think I ever seen a complaint about times of maintenance . Or do you Americans think your more important than the rest of the world.?
I expected a long downtime but 10 hours during NA primetime is pretty funny. I am amuse.
IMO, this pretty much cements just how SQEN feels about NA/EU.
The timing makes sense given their complete incompetence thus far though. For them to attempt to bring up their servers and mickey mouse login system with any kind of significant traffic around would probably be instant disaster.
They'll have all day tomorrow to fix problems before the work day winds down and they get serious traffic. Assuming there are problems. Which I would expect there to be since SQEN has been fail thus far. Waiting almost 2 weeks to finally do something is pretty much fail. And assuming they can be bothered to fix problems without waiting for the perfect time and moon cycle for japan.
Premium MMORPGs do not feature built-in cheating via cash for gold pay 2 win. PLAY to win or don't play.

2 weeks ? early axcess they added servrs so it sonly been 1 week. and they had the new hardware last week but they had to install it and test it. and considering this is there normal work hours. so please stop being so entitled
I'd give up 3 days of playtime if it meant that when the servers came back up I could actually PLAY instead of hitting the 0 key over and over for 4 hours trying to get in the game.

OH, and you get a weeks worth of free playtime for your bitching... OH AND you probably already got the game for free.
How about be grateful for the game being so great that you get to cry yourself to sleep tonight because you couldn't log in? Good problem to have.
This post would suggest you could play during primetime in the first place. The only ones that where are the ones who never logged out in the first place. Also, I paid American money and this mait. is much much better for me.
All that aside it didn't matter when they made the times. People like the OP would still bitch and moan about it. People like this ALWAYS complain about downtime. It doesn't matter if it effects them or not. Every MMO since the very beginning has pissed someone off with the times they take down the servers and it will never change.

I'm sorry but I'm really, REALLY hoping that you, the OP and all those supporting his stance let your allotted 30 +7 days run it's course, come here, write a bad review about how you hated it and never step in Eorzea again. Because I find your collective attitudes...in the words of Lemon Grab
"Small minds talk about people, average minds talk about events, great minds talk about ideas."
I would just like to say that the maintenance timing couldn't be any better for me, simply because it's expecting to be back on straight after dinner (being Aussie and all that).
I am usually busy before then, so I am a happy duckling.
OP, I'm sorry to inform you that the world doesn't revolve around you, or America for that matter. But be grateful that maintenance is in progress.
>> You cannot have your cake and eat it too. <<
Im sorry but Im going to have to nitpick here. The downtime is nearly ideal for EU, started during the night and will end around noon.
So by your logics.. they love the EU region?
@OP : FU, US is a minority with to much attitude in world politics.
@others : glad they fix it, long maintenance but worth the hassle, hope they allow character creation again, got a game now, but can not play it
OP, this might be a culture shock to you, but there are these "minor" areas around the globe, that are not actually part of USA.
To everybody else: HOORAY!!!

These angry children who are clueless of anything outside the US are so entertaining. So much ridiculous self entitlement for no reason whatsoever. Gee, I wonder why half the world hates us.
This maintenance is also eating into a big chunk of JP prime time too (it wont be ending until at least 7 PM JP time, and that's IF it is done in time and they don't run into delays). If it was their goal to be unfair to the US and treat JP special, it would have started a few hours earlier and not impacted JP prime time at all.
Oh and BTW, the servers ARENT in the USA. They're in Canada. Oh damn. We should go to war with Canada, they're destroying our lives! RAAAAAAAAAWR NERDRAAAAAGE!
Technically you (well, most likely your parents) paid American dollars to play a Japanese made game via a server in Canada. You're in America, nothing about the game is.
