If you signed the NDA you shouldn't be talking about being in the closed beta.
i believe this issue has been made perfectly clear in this thread, and fortunately no one has yet violated the NDA
Very cool jobs video...
Yes, now the worst part = waiting............=/. I'm currently subbed to SWTOR, and I have The Last of Us on pre-order, but in all honestly I'd trade them both for a chance to play the live version of FFXIV: ARR.
I believe that they are expanding the beta in a few weeks, though I agree on wanting to play the live game!
These days; I don't even play beta's anymore. In the past I have invested so much time into other beta tests that they ruined the game for me when it went live. I love that initial "wow factor" of stepping foot into an MMO for the first time. And I have no attachment to my character because I know that they'll be deleted.
I've played in more betas than I care to mention, so I know the feeling. I was in the GW2 alpha/beta for close to two years and it really took a toll on my active live game play, which ended up being a bit over six months.
That said, I still like to get my feet partially wet in betas to see if I'm going to enjoy the game. The trick is knowing when to put it down!
I'm the same way; I've lost count. Don't get me wrong, I still apply. Its still a thrill to get selected =).
Sadly I cannot login to my Square Enix account...even after succesfully changing my password it says "wrong account or password"...
Tried the support section of them but they ask for a "Playonline ID" ...I don't have that...
Also after sending a email to their support I immediatly got a mail back with a "Fatal Error" message....
It's a deadend no matter where I try.
And that's a shame. I have the original collectors edition and would have loved to check out the new and improved game
Looking at some of the vids circulating around the web not really certain how launch will go...
Going to wait a while before deciding to pick it up.
I'm not sure the NDA is doing them any good imo. If it's not ready it's not going to sell, just like the first attempt.
It's basically WoW with a FF wrapper, nothing more, nothing less. To some that may not be enough, for someone like me, who after playing 1.0, just wished it could be like WoW with a FF wrapper, I'm excited. There's nothing wrong with being different, as long as your different is good, and fun. Well, for me, 1.0, wasn't very good. But, I think you need to be a FF too, above all else.
w00t!!! Just got selected for Beta Testing!!! There goes the weekend.......
I just got a beta invite. Looking forward to giving it a spin.
Jut finished downloading, waiting for servers to come up
the basic NDA has been lifted (i believe there is a restriction on the posting of videos, however).
also, a note to all those who have been participating in previous beta-test(s), even if you have not received an e-mail about this weekend's phase 3, you likely can just update your client and log in normally.
finally, there have indeed been a lot of changes since phase 2, especially as far as the starting area is concerned (see image below). as Trimethicon noted, simply playing FF as a PvE themepark is quite enough for me to be entertained for quite some time. began with the Gladiator, but keen for a go with a Thaumaturge. perhaps we can get a link shell going (or get on TS, god forbid) at the very least to chat about all the new bits in-game.
What server is everyone on?
hey guys, i put about 15 hours in to beta 3 and had a ball. I am definatly going to have a good dig on release, and i would love to hear what plans TOG has for ffxiv?
I was in TOG TERA untill gw2 released and i havnt really been involved since.
I played wow for a very long time and after playing recent games, its the graphics i cant cop any more, i want to be immersed and wow graphics dont do that for me so much.
I really loved the depth of ffxiv over the weekend and i feel that if it had TERA's combat system instead of tab targeting and massive gdc'd it would be ''Perfect'' game for me.
Its so tempting to login, I must hold off...............I was watching my son play over his shoulder, I had to walk away, I wanted to push him out of the way and start playing.
Keep those screens coming Mach 5! Looks beautiful.
Phase 3 has been alot of fun. Thorne and I plan to play in August. If ToG plans a link shell, that would be great. Will keep an eye on the forum to see what world has been selected.
