I signed up for Alpha. Says requires an active FFXIV account, but I tried anyway. I read people were getting in without that requirement: would be silly to let a select few in anyway if they were actually serious about testing this and learning from past mistakes. Let you guys know if I get in.

Edit: Looking at my Square-Enix account its says I have an active FFXIV account. Ok then LOL!. Apparently if you don't have one it should give you a message telling you so when you try to sign up.

Seeing how broken the signup is, I am sticking with the game still sucks.

Oh look my old account info is needed, sure! Wait, it says I do not have FFXIV, well bullshit.
Goto SE website to verify, oh but wait, this site doesn't have the login info from FFXIV, in fact the SE site has none of my info what so ever.
Create account on SE site, register FFXIV figuring it would give code in use etc. Nope, account registered!
Go back to apply for alpha, that login does not accept my new SE account as it doesn't exist and still insists I use my old info that doesn't have FFXIV attached.

If you cannot get your fucking websites to work right, chances are you also don't have the ability to make a good game.

Yeah there seems to be some oversights here. Because if it was working correctly as stated, only people that were payed up during the last months before they shut the servers down should have "active" accounts eligible to register for the alpha. This is my understanding based on what I have read.

However they seemed to have not deactivated some folks' accounts who had registered during the release and free period of the game, like mine.

The site is a pain in the ass though. They have like 3 different sites: one that is a social site, another for customer service, and the last for online games. Each requires you to log in separately. It's very stupid, as there is no proper link to the one you want. Had similar frustration because I forgot my password; well I really I forgot my username and thought the password email would tell me. It's took some google searching to get to the actually online game account login page.

But yeah for me, under current active accounts I had retail FFXIV.

Yeah I had similar pains, I clicked the link for the alpha... had to log in again (after trying to reset my password which didn't work because it said I was trying to reset it to the same password... which magically worked when i tried to log in again) Then once i was logged in it took me to a different page, not for the alpha signup... So i click the alpha link again then have to sign in AGAIN even though i'm already signed in... But this time it goes to the right place and I'm actually able to register.

So i got to play for about 20 mins before the server died tonight for maintenence...


THEY FUCKING DID IT.

THEY FUCKING FIXED FF14.


It controls (with mouse/kb) like a real modern MMO... its not laggy or crappy, you can jump... regular WASD+mouselook controls.

The menus are resizable, movable... the inventory is bag-slot based instead of a stupid list.

The map is functional, it moves in real time with you and shows quest locations and shit. The quest system is a rip of WOW's -- which is pretty much the best thing you can rip off for a game like this.

It looks BEAUTIFUL, and runs like a champ. It performs pretty much flawlessly running windowed fullscreen on my comp at 1680x1050... FFXIV 1.0 struggled like a bitch in an even smaller window on the exact same hardware.

Unfortunately the server died right before i got into combat on the initial tutorial questline, so I can't say for sure they fixed the gameplay, but... damn its like a revelation. To quote Naba from my stream "It's like I saw a unicorn."

I'll be playing this a LOT more and streaming, I'll update the skype channel when and where.

Crush is right it is great, everything I had issues with has been fixed. Crafting and harvesting are much much better, all be it there is still some random to it, but hell harvesting tells you what the % is of getting which item you want, yes when farming you can pick what item you want to harvest, and the % increases as you level. Gone are the arcane days of ffxi or even that stupid hot cold game of the first version. Combat is quick and responsive, though opo opo's are still fucking opo opo's just stay away from groups. The are side town quests, class/guild quests, and leaves. Its easy to level your first class, but others it will be through grinding and leaves at least in the alpha. Though in the real game you'll be able to just go to another city and use those to level.

Crush, I'm on Bahamut, rocking 20 lancer, 15 Conjurer, 15 Archer, 15 Leatherworker.
