The issues in beta were things I expected. No one knows the real extent of the issues either and they seem to have been fixed. I have high hopes for the game and besides just being slow in communication square seems to be treating everyone as fairly as possible.

And to those that said they would quit if the beta got wiped, they can just go cry in a corner because you put in that much time knowing there could be a wipe. People have a terrible sense of entitlement. The people calling for the wipe couldnt have cared less if there were 25times more people that had no issues and the people that threatened to quit if one happened couldnt care less that maybe 90% of the game couldnt play. Now obviously I made those numbers up but the point is people are just crying it seems. A company can't make everyone happy and I personally think square is doing its best at staying neutral.

This.

preach!

The entitlement thing is rampant in the upcoming generations. Everyone thinks companies, people, teachers, schools, etc etc OWE them something for no reason and blame those individuals/companies if they don't get it. It is never their fault but always somebody else who is at fault. Hard work? Earning what you have worked for? Being gracious for what you have? Being thankful? What are those things!?

You can't reason with entitlement because of how illogical it is. The belief is that there IS such a thing as free lunch and that free lunch is mine! The best part of the entitlement nature is seeing it applied to video games, a luxury item. It doesn't get much more ignorant than that.

They tweeted that the character data will not be wiped:

FINAL FANTASY XIV ‏@FF_XIV_EN 21 Aug
As we've announced previously, there will be no wipe of the Beta phase 4 data. That data will carry over to early access/launch. #FFXIV

Also the official forum is up. Feel free to register there. Its getting close!!! Im pretty excited for early access.

Registered my early access code etc etc, but it just tells me I have no valid or active service account lol. Gotta love SE
