Example of what I go through every time I try to log in for hours and hours on end, spamming.. This is my personal video of how it REALLY is.. This is what you will go through all day.. FFXIV Login Congestion - YouTube It's 1030: pm EST time and I still can't log in.. So far since release. People have spent hours and hours on end, spamming their characters, to get into the server SE let them join.. So far I have personally spent countless hours, every time, trying to log into the server, with constant 1017 errors and disconnects.. I have written them several support tickets all of which they promptly close, with no explanation and no word of an incoming fix.. The game it's self may be great. But what does it matter when you can't even log in to play it? I am a huge fan of the series but if SE thinks I am paying to play a game that i cannot even log into. They have another thing coming. This has reached ultimate bullshit proportions imo. It is beyond pathetic now.. People just refuse to log out and now no one can log in.. I could not be more displeased with how SE has handled their server congestion issues and if they don't fix it. You can dam well rest assured, I will be cancelling my account day 1, when they start to charge..
