    Beta 3 impressions and general discussion

    In order to stop our beloved "Comments of the armchair devs" thread from becoming an even bigger mess (is that possible?), I took the liberty to open this thread. We all know our whining and praising is going to end up showing up somewhere, so I think we should channel it into the appropriate place.

    Post your thoughts about the current beta phase and tell us either how much the game is going to fail or how other MMO players might as well kill themselves now.

    Non-Disclosure Agreement Status

    Here is how non-disclosure agreement will work in Beta Test phase 3:
    -Information will be free to post. Everything is open and you can post freely about any aspect of the beta test and your thoughts on it.
    In regards to images and video in Beta Test phase 3:
    -You can post images of phase 3 (no images from Alpha, phase 1 or phase 2)
    -You cannot post audio or video.
    We will be making a more detailed announcement before the start of Beta phase 3, but I wanted to share this general overview now.
    Clarifications:
    -TL;DR: Say whatever you want about the beta. Post only screenshots from phase 3.
    -Links to youtube or videos of any sort (even if they only contain screenshots) are not allowed on these forums (Source: Gulkeeva, Comments of the devs).


    Links/Q&A:

    Can now type into different LSs with /l1, /l2, etc. No need to active the LS before chatting

    All promotional items from 1.0 (helm, hands, boots, googles) carry over in this phase

    Only two dungeons in la Noscea
    Two dungeons in Thanalan too

    You can't. You can only import appearance

    Beta Test Phase 3

    - Phase 3 characters will be deleted at the start of phase 4.
    - Data centers will be located in Japan and overseas.
    - More than 20 Worlds will be available.
    - All character customization options will be available.
    - Beta Phase 3 characters can level from 1-35.
    - Version 1.0 characters can be used.
    * In this case, the level cap will be that of the Version 1.0 character’s.

    - Testing will commence on the PlayStation®3.
    - All FFXIV service account holders qualify as testers in phase 3.
    - The following elements will be introduced for testing:
    Limsa Lominsa and Ul’dah leveling paths / Additional side quests
    Additional class quests / Additional Full Active Time Events / Additional dungeons
    Free companies (formation and management) / Free company points → Will be in Phase 4
    Linkshells / Limit Break / Materia crafting /
    Duty Finder (the player matching feature) will be implemented in the middle of Beta phase 3
    Level Sync / Other
    - In addition to the above, the following is also scheduled:
    Beta phase 2 feedback revisions / Version 1.0 data migration testing
    Overseas data center stress testing / Performance optimization
    If you can't import character levels, the bolded section makes no sense.

    What makes no sense is how I added a minuscule QA as a joke and someone still fell for the million dollar question

    Forums are down but we were told a few days ago that imports would not be available this weekend

    Instead of repeatedly telling people "you can't import characters" it might be more useful to say "character level import is down for this weekend" (like you did in your spoilered Q&A). But thanks anyway.

    It's the difference between "you can't change classes" and "class change is broken."

    Do you want me to clarify that gear, materia, consumables, achievements, and absolutely everything except for appearance is also unavailable?

    I'm done shitting up the thread, I'll add an extra question just for you when I come back

    "Character import is not working fully yet" would suffice. Simply saying "you can't import characters" right after someone imports their appearance is a little too nuanced.

    NA server, and still ridiculously terrible movement lag. Circle test fail, and you cant even watch other people go by without seeing the banding/moonwalking. Forget about if they jump cos they get hilariously suspended in the air. More subtle than on the JP servers, but not by much. Its still painfully obvious.

    Almost out of checkpoints to be waiting for. 2.0, alpha, beta, beta phase 3 datacenters, launch will fix it!

    Sucks too because the intro was pretty cool, and I liked everything I was seeing with Thaumaturge redesign. Umbral Ice buff was peaking my interest.

    Not seeing many issues on Courel server so far, no lag at all hardly, getting 50-60fps everywhere and only a couple instances of other characters having the aforementioned issues. Pug is nice so far and what i've seen just punching things THM looks pretty cool too.
