Ah, nice.

I'm glad they are doing what Square would typically do; basic knowledge and intelligence rather than just pure hardware specifications and first come first serve.

Looks like they actually mean business that they actually want every single person to report things.

Are you kidding me?

It was announced at 1PM. That's not "prime time" that's "lunch time".

Don't start this crap before the game's already out...

A Japanese company making an announcement during the middle of the day in Japan... the nerve of them!!! They should stay up til 2 or 3 am so they can make announcements during the middle of the day here in the US!!! /sarcasm

The last question on the application is bugged (as of this writing anyway). Unless they only meant to invite people who run game fan-sites?

Well they sent out an email to everyone who put their address in on the FFXIV site, so I'm assuming they want everyone to sign up... I just checked "A site that is none of the above" so I didn't have to enter in a URL. Probably a mistranslation on that last option.

I do wish they had an option to enter in multiple PC specs too.

I hate their account service. I made an account when FF11 came out but I found out they've deleted it which is annoying because I can't go back to that game and when I try to register the CD KEY it says it's been used. So now I have to go buy the game again to play it and I've lost my characters and everything. Plus having an old account gives you a sense of pride for being in the original game. And the rules for the password and username are stupid.

So I can't be bothered with this game knowing they'll delete my account if I don't play for a few years.

They have NEVER deleted accounts, they used to delete characters after 3-6 months of inactivity but they have stopped doing that. If you don't have your playonline ID (POL) anymore it's because you've mistakenly deleted that instead of your character or you forgot what the number is, you can call them at the 800 number to try to retrieve it. :)

POL accounts and Square Enix accounts are not the same thing, if you've never bought a security token you probably wouldn't have a SE account anyway.

Thanks for the update, might check it out. I don't have TOO much faith in it, but they seem to be mixing things up enough to make me interested in the game.

Even though the races are extremely unoriginal.

So is this game a new mmo for them or just another stand alone title, is it a sequel? Someone clue me here..

Anyone else having problems with their site? When I go to put in my username and password to get to the application it just doesn't seem to do anything after I press Log in. Screen just flashes and nothing happens. Same thing happens on normal Square-enix members page when I try to log in. Have tried turning off security software and using different web browsers. Any ideas?

Try updating your flash or java, it's probably something wonky with one of those things. :)

Yeah.. this is a fail....

I am logged into the square website, yet, when I try to log in to sign up for beta it tells me my account doesn't exist.

I have been trying off and on since 8am.....

Booooooooooo

Oh and they deleted my old account that I played on for years.....

Double Booooooooo

Are you trying to log in with your Playonline ID or your Square Enix Member account.

Because neither qualify for this. I have a SE Member account, for their forums, games, avatars, etc, and that does not accept the ID on this page.

Also, they never delete anyone's Playonline ID. They may delete characters, which can be recovered (but it's not guaranteed) but never the main account.
