FFXIV General discussion topic

Well obviously if you feel the discussion is worth its own topic be sure to do so, but for all the "random" talk we'll use this board so the the other topics don't get cluttered with it ;)



So with less than a month to go I can't wait for the game. Even managed to get three days off from work to play the game :P

Has anybody already picked up the date for the start of the open beta??

Its pretty quite so far and having to calculate in a few days for the early access and a few days bug fixing I would have expected the open beta to start this week, but with no confirmation I'm starting to wonder about that part.

I would get this game as it looks like a FFF! (Fantastic Final Fantasy.... Shh)
But my laptop isn't up to par with playing new PC games, and even if it is released on console, I don't think I'm willing to pay the monthly fee.

I guess I'm sitting this one out. :/

Well if they want any time for bugfixing and give out an decent early access (of lets say a minim of 3 days) they should be starting this weekend. I'm just finding the lack of information a bit weird.

But I guess the next live letter will clear things up :P

Here are links for the live letter:

YouTube: http://sqex.to/dYt
Twitch: http://sqex.to/htj

Someone is also translating the whole thing:

http://www.twitch.tv/reinheartv



Phase 4 and Early Access just got announced. Phase 4 is 17-19th of August (it starts on the 16th for those who already participate in the beta). Early access starts on the 24th. It's a bit of a surprise that the open beta will last only 2-3 days.

How is that a surprise? Every Phase lasted few days except for the 3rd one.

They just wanna test the last few things, that's more than enough time. They don't give those days for people to just mindlessly farm to get as many levels as they can before the others (which is what pretty much everyone will do -.-).

They talked about 1-2 weeks (check the roadmap that Sixty posted). I'm also not sure that 3 days will be enough to test pvp and the housing system. Level 20 is the cap, so there shouldn't be too much farming.

From the Roadmap:
Quote
* The schedule is subject to change depending on the volume of feedback.
* Phase duration is subject to change depending on the amount of adjustments required.

3 days is plenty of time for these few features. During Phase 1-2 there were the most important/difficult test and those took 1-2 weeks for a reason.

With the character data being transferred over most people already act as if beta phase 4 is another early access moment. Apart from that all the important stuff has already been tested. Housing is just another instance and pvp will be an ongoing thing anyway which can't be tweaked after a week of testing anyway.

Actually kinda glad its just so short, this way I'm not missing out much by not starting till the official release (read early access) ;D

Starting to love this more and more everyday. You should see the amount of hate topics on the fact that beta phase 4 is only 2/3 days and the level cap of 20. People really expected to be able to get a lvl 50 character ready before the early access even started :P
