    Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Shatters Records with 187,000 Concurrent Connections; 200,000 Expected Soon

    Square Enix just suspended digital download sales of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn in order to avoid further congestion of the servers due to unexpectedly heavy traffic while they prepare to launch new servers, but just how heavy is that traffic?

    The publisher just sent in a press release giving some numbers for us to crunch on. After launch concurrent connections have reached a record number of 187,000 (the previous record for a game operated by a Japanese company was 150,000 during the open beta of A Realm Reborn), and Square Enix expects that the numbers will grow further and will reach 200,000 in the near future.

    The suspension of digital sales is of course just a temporary solution while more servers are deployed, and the development team expects to be able to improve server capacity significantly. Square Enix expects to complete the operation by the beginning of next week, when digital sales will resume. The exact date will be announced at a later time.

    Titan. Everything about the fight. The music. It's awesome. Also a little terrifying to be trapped by that rock cage move.

    Everyone should level CUL to 20 if for no other reason than to do the Rank 20 quest.

    I'd find it even more hilarious if it gave some kind of labeled reward like a frypan named "Everybody Cooks".

    I'm happy they're way past their expected capacity, but still, that's gotta REALLY hurt to make that decision to stop digital download sales when people are really excited about getting their hands on the game. Hopefully things are back on track early next week with the expected increased server capacity.

    On amazon:

    "A message from Square Enix regarding Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Digital Downloads
    "Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play. We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes." Customers looking to place an order for the PC version may still purchase the physical copy. "

    Currently there are 1,041,961 characters on the servers. (Not at the same time.) Between the 25th and the 26th, the game added 142,640 new characters. NA players compromise about ~63% of the entire population.

    NA alone almost double JP population. Or I guess to be more legalistic, the ones who flag themselves as English almost double the JP players

    I believe they are actually encouraging a thread for each question. Not kidding.

    This may sound strange putting this in the praise thread but..

    I've decided to wait to get the game untill the server congestion issues are resolved. I have faith they will get it fixed. So I'm just going to be patient even though it's frustrating.

    I'm still shopping around for a SSD drive anyway for PS3 that is cheap but decent.

    Don't wanna get too off topic, but I thought ps3 ssd wasn't that big an improvement, like single digit not even close to double digit improvement.

    That sounds like what I heard as well. But this is the first mmo for the ps3, right? Who knows what will happen, but it certainly won't go slower lol.

    edit: Forgot to put my new praise in. Gigi the mammet helping Serendipity at the GSM guild. Automaton with attitude!

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    God, I'm loving the flavor text for these missions and NPCs in the world so far.

    My character has been called a bitch and a whoreson and propositioned by a prostitute all in the same night XD Then follow that up with all the puns surrounding quest names, the rampant swearing, references to all sorts of illicit behavior, the constant throwbacks to Final Fantasy and the different dialects.

    SE sure this game is for 13 year olds? The marked improvement in setting mood and characterizing NPCs is duely noted by my refined sensibilities. Now if only the voice acting wasn't subpar and sporadic...
