This game is screwed and only has itself to blame. All this work to fumble at the goal is bad enough, every day that digital sales are halted they are losing money to people who are deciding to pre-order GTAV instead.
Well, I was there for 1.0 when they truly screwed it up. This game was rebuilt on speculation and hope. SE truly didn't believe this many
people would jump in as fast or in such quantities considering the bad-mouthing by everyone 3 years ago.
But you know what? The days I can't get in, I could go play WoW or Rift or a few other games. But I don't. I hang around all the FFXIV forums in between log-in tries. I read all these posts by you special snowflakes having your tantrums because you're just one
of a few hundred thousand people who can't get in. I had issues with my account and in time
got it fixed. I still don't have access to my 1.0 character, but I'm going to wait til this all dies down. It's called patience.
Grow the hell up.
