There's still no absolute certainty that its going to be a weekly running ordeal either though. :/

They did say that they are going to have week long tests. I am guessing that will be in phase 4 to properly server stress test.

Know it wont be this weekend, but hopefully next or the weekend after it starts. They should give it a good month or so of constant testing to make sure they can handle a small amount, cause when it goes live for all, it will have loads of players starting... Then after a few months the numbers might dip slightly when people see its p2p. Or could rise depending on all the feedback.

I'm kinda skeptical about them doing 15$ a month. I think this is gonna turn a lot of people off to it. The only other option would be to go with the 90 day plan for a dollar cheaper per month. I guess if someone wanted to pay for half a years subscription they could save 2 dollars a month but who's going to do that right off the start of the game? 15$ a month just sounds too high, they should go back to 13$ like ffxi had, yeah ffxiv is a newer game but that doesn't mean anything if ffxi has 10 years worth of developed content.

I think people getting "legacy" is somewhat unfair too with how they are justifying it:
"To qualify for a legacy account you must have subscribed for at least 90 days before June 30th 2012, 2012."

I think legacy should be anyone who bought the game the first time around and tried it but that's just me.

$15 a month is what a good amount of games do, so the price scale is not that bad. I wish it would be a little cheaper, but you never know what they will do between now and release. Graphics wise, i would say it is worth it. Content wise i cannot say for sure as they have not released everything yet but from what i have seen so far from playing, players will get their moneys worth.

Unlike other games where you have to make a new character for each class, you have the ability to change it. There might be a cap on how many one character can be, but not sure of this myself. Questing is a lot better then other games as i have noticed while playing other ones that people mob steal, or try to. In FF14 as long as you provide a good amount of damage or support, you get credit for the kill as well, even if you are not in the other persons group.

I believe $15 is quite a fair price when you look at investment/play-ability. You'll generally spend $60 on a new release title to get maybe 20 hours of gameplay. With XIV $15 can get you whatever time you're willing/available to invest. Not to mention XI was $13 but each additional character was $1 more, with XIV you get up to 10 characters for $15.

Point blank, there is a lot of money at stake in this game for SE and they will have to regain some investments first and foremost before any sort of drop in price can occur. I'm sure in the future the price may fall a bit but as to that being any time soon...I highly doubt it.

Thought i saw something about there being a max of 40 chars allowed, with up to 8 on a server. They could have changed it, but even 10 chars is more then enough with the job system. No need to make a new one for each class/job

Well it depends on the payment method you choose, there's several to speak of as of right now. (looked into it further, its 40 characters or 8 per server)

$15 isn't a bad price, that's two fast food meals a month. If this game gets the same kind of following that XI has, I don't see them dropping the sub fee.

I don't think legacy status is unfair, seeing as SE had asked people to pay for the subcription for 1.0 when they could no longer afford to keep the game free. At this point you had people who still supported the game, and those who left, and this was SE's way of saying thanks to those who stuck around. And I was one of the poor saps who bought the collectors edition.

The plus side to p2p games is that it weeds out those people you do not want to be playing. Mostly the spam bots that advertise gold buying. That sort of thing ruins any game. I just hope they do not give a free 2 week trial or what ever to people, because then the bots will be up and running. Or if they do, make it so they cannot trade. Though from what i have seen, currency is mainly used for moving from cities/towns. Though i haven't gotten a second job/class yet so it might also help in getting armor for that.

They actually are implementing a free 1 month membership for new subscriptions and 2 weeks for legacy. Which is fair considering we got early access. Dont feel bad card I bought the CE as well and played from release until it was shut down last year. Honestly though I havent even touched my legacy character yet though. Having too much fun starting over with my friends.

Well, 1 month generally does come free when you buy a game, so that is to be expected. I'll be pre-ordering the digital collectors edition in the next few weeks, after i get paid for overtime. Hoping that will also give early access, but if not I'm still fine with it.

And don't forget folks, if your in beta, update before you goto bed/work! little more then 8 hours until its up again... lil sad i gotta work all weekend, so it will cut the hours i can play in half, if not more. But i will have 3 days off when its released, so its all good. Need to learn if red bull will have an effect on me. Tried a monster once.... made me more sleepy.
