The lights are on
Since its relaunch, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has been experiencing login issues. To help make up for the inconvenience, Square Enix is offering a free week to players.
Last week, Square Enix put a temporary hold on digital download sales of the game to help alleviate server stress. Players are still experiencing issues, so Square Enix is offering seven days of additional free play time to players. In order to take advantage of the free time, players must register their game before Sept. 9. Additionally, the servers will be getting maintenance on the morning of Sept. 4, which will increase the number of available Worlds, reduce stress on the Duty Finder servers, and increase the number of concurrent logins allowed for each server.
For all the details, head to page two, or head to the official Final Fantasy XIV website.

Our TakeWhile it's an unfortunate problem for players, it's a good problem for Square Enix to have. Especially when you consider the problems surrounding the game's original launch. Hopefully, this will all get cleaned up soon.

I've had colossal login issues like all the rest. There is no REAL login queue you have to just keep pressing and pressing and pressing went on the an hour and 30 min the other day, only to cause my computer to blue screen 4 minutes in. It's the only game and/or program that has ever caused such an event. Fixing the login issues would be amazing, but if the blue screening issue doesn't get fixed I don't think I'll be able to force myself to keep trying.
they've really had a lot of issues with ff14 its unfortunate but it really does seem like the quality of the game has improved which is the most important thing
Major bummer for such a great launch of sales. I tried out the Beta a few weeks ago, and it was pretty promising.
Really glad they added some more worlds they needed it.
