Basically this is a shameless self bump to see if anyone is interested/invited to the closed Beta that is back up this weekend. I plan on not sleeping for this weekend event again and playing the tits off of the game, so if anyone else is down to join just let me know!

I just got my beta invite so i will be all over this all weekend.

I did a beta test for the first time they pushed out FF14 and i will say that i was not impressed at all.

Now i am totally blown away by how this game looks. I havent done anything in game yet but right before i had to go to work i was working on creating my character and just from doing that i could tell that this looked MILES better than the first beta i played.

I love the graphics so far and i cant wait to really dig into this game. I have high hopes for it.

I think its pretty cool that they brought back a lot of stuff from the old FF games into this one. Limit Breaks, Summons and all the monsters from the old games. I just love it.

I did the EXACT same thing during phase 2. Only had enough time before work to create a character and it was a nice foreshadow of things to come. Everything is so much more responsive, shit isn't buried in menus, fighting is fluid and enjoyable, and yeah, its a beautiful game.

Bummer I'll be AFK most of the weekend. Kill some Fungar for me.

The graphic improvements haven't really done much for me. 1.0 was basically boring and a shit game to play so no amount of graphics could change that but from what I have done with it, the game does seem to be a bit more traditional. Console control scheme seems a bit off but this is the first beta phase with the console players so its to be expected.

Nope PC because the console doesn't do max settings at 1920x1200. Still I did try it on the console because that was what this beta test was about. =P

Yeah. I find the three major gripes this time around rather amusing. "The game looks like shit why isn't this running on Frostbite", "My class tied to a starting city means I can't play with friends", and "The quest log doesn't hold my hand please change it" bring me joy. I don't know why I still talk to human beings anymore.

I loved it. There are some things that do need fixed or changed but i honestly think the graphics are good. I loved the character models and the environments. I really don't see an issue other than some issues with shadow flicker.

I dont see why some people are saying it looks like crap, i must be seeing something everyone else isnt. I think it looks great.

Some issues i had were having problems finding quests on the map. A faded red dot on the map that i can barley see does not work for me. It needs to be brighter but i dont need an arrow above me showing the way.

If you noticed, they have taken a lot of things from the old single player FF games and have incorporated them into this game. I cant wait to use summons and use FF7s limit breaks.

I also think that its awesome that one toon can be every class in the game. I dont have to regret the class i picked and i can just change when i want too.

Im upset that phase 3 ended so early but i already love the game and have it preordered. This is one game i will gladly pay for and spend a lot of time on.

Oh, I agree the game is top. Needs a bit of polish still and all we are testing right now is the first 20 levels in a 50 level saga. but it still works.

That was only Test 1 of 4 in phase three and was only to test the PS3 client reliability and interfacing with the PC client. They still haven't announced when the version 1.0 character data transfer test or Duty Finder tests will be yet.

I may not be able to video a steam but I figured since I can post pictures I'd let everyone get a look at what I was up today. I downgraded all images to 720p to make them slow connection friendly.

First! Limsa Lominsa at night.

Then Sastasha, the first instance dungeon in the game.

Next up, Copperbell Mines which is the game's third instance dungeon.

And Finally a fight with a level 10 Guildhest boss.

I know a lot of new players not coming from the FFXI Online background may be wondering exactly what everything does. This is a little thing where unlike most companies SqEnix likes to design their systems and present them in a way that the player has to figure out exactly how they work. To assist some of the newer players beta or otherwise here is a rundown of what each stat actually does.

Also More Screenshots.

Gear sets that change you and your class on the fly.

The Hunt Log System where simply roaming around and killing a certain number of certain things gets you bonus exp. Also available for crafting and gathering classes.

Final Boss of Tam Tara Deepcroft dungeon, the second one you should find yourself in.

This happened...

A little later I jumped into Haukke Manor which plays out like a very sadistic haunted house.

And I ended my weekend tanking a World Boss with my newfound friends. It's Not Lupus.

Well this beta seems to be over for me...

I went to go zone into a different area and I got a 90000 error and was kicked back to the menu.

Then when I tried to log in my toon wouldn't show and i got a message saying that the server list couldn't be populated.

I restarted the client and everything seemed fine but now when i try to log in i get a message saying that im already logged in and that i need to wait to be logged out. Error 3102.

This was 10 hours ago...

There are hundreds upon hundreds of people screaming about this issue and yet still nothing has been done.

If i try to create a new toon on a different world i get the same damn message.

Its a damn shame because i was really getting into it.

Anyone else in the beta having this issue?

I guess I have been lucky enough to dodge this issue. I know for a fact running the 13.8 beta drivers for AMD cards has a game crashing bug, had to roll mine back.

There are probably close to 180,000 people who cant get on the game.

Currently the thread for the issue is at 1800 pages of users posting what world they are on and their toons name in hopes that the issue will be fixed.

So far its been 20 hours since i got kicked from the game.

A lot of people are PISSED.

Luckily it is a beta. At last update they were still looking into it.
