I got in too. Got to the load up screen where your data (msgs., friend list) is retrieved, then...it disconnected me from network. Three times I tried this...three times I got dc'd.

The servers ARE UP.

The POL Login is the one going up **** creek without a paddle. This is why the servers are saying they are UP on thier site.

It's POL that needs to get thier **** in gear.

1 month free? Nah, tops would be like 2-3 dollars off next month. Either way I'd really rather just see GOOD new content come out. Ability to let people into your moghouse. Ability to add rooms to the moghouse (Wouldn't it be nice to buy an add-on chocobo stable to your own house?) Animated back items (black cape - yes please). Mogtent - yeah, you can only use it at home points and it'll give you options like a nomad moogle (maybe without the delivery box) Weapons with visual effect animations on them (i.e. flame sword always on fire and actually looks like it.) A barber shop and a weight loss/gain shop and a cosmetic surgery place (yeah, i want to change my face style, height and hair style, might as well give me the **** option to.) And seriously, what the **** is with these NPC's that store armor and junk, it's such a hassle. It would of been nice to consolodate all those NPC's into 1. What NPC? You're moogle! Always conveniently located. A teleporter as well as airships - seriously, why is it so important to waste our time on an airship. It is convenient for no one. Just give us teleporters so we can travel whenever instead of missing the airship by 1 second having to wait 20 minutes just for it to get back to you and take you to your location. Ugh, now I'm ranting. This is what no FF does, it makes us look at all the **** areas that need improvement. Done.

Owning your own choco stable... hmmm *thinking happy thoughts*

Nice to think about, but I hardly see it as happening. I believe it is easier for their billing system to see a non-payment therefore getting your **** kicked, rather than going through all the codes to see who has been wronged in which time zone and factoring an amount to reimburse.

Peace,

My vote is the need to make amends to us all in some way. either a break on one months fee or something..

Alright. The Registration server (as in not POL or FF online) will be down the night of the 23rd and morning of the 24th. The current log-on issue is being addressed and will be resolved at an unknown time. Please go to www.playonline.com/ff11us then click the "information" button on the left. Actually READ what is stated in anything that has Oct. 21st or later as the date. So, when can we all get back on and start working for the +1 versions of the harvest festival items? Well, as I stated earlier and as stated in the information section:

Currently investigation and recovery work are underway and we hope to resolve this issue as soon as possible. We will post more information as it becomes available.

We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused.


[Date & Time]
Oct. 21, 2005 from 13:09 (PDT)

Notice how it just has a "From" time and no "to" time? This means it's unknown. I hope you can feel a little smarter now.

while I doubt this will do much to shut whiners up out of bordeom I pulled up internet traffic reports asian stats at http://www.internettrafficreport.com/asia.htm

More than half the routers listed have total 100% packet loss including the one located in japan. So before you bust out the pitch forks and boiling oil at least consider it might not be on purpose or even their fault :P

This isn't a simple router, the major Tier1 connections apparently crashed. Most of Asia is cut off from the rest of the world, internet wise.

One router will not kill Japan. There will be countless alternative routes to ensure that the internet will stay up. Those figures doesn't really mean anything. If it said 100% down... then that's a problem. I think anything below 98% wouldn't be a problem.

I wasn't trying to imply that all of japan was cut off what I WAS saying is that there does seem to be some sort problem in the region there are alternate routes for the data to go true but its still going to slow down repsonse time. As far as I can see regardless of the numerical value tacked on to it most of POL's connection errors say "network busy or unavailable" and amount to server times outs. Meaning the only reason no one can get on is because POL is asking for attention and the machines on the other end just aren't sending repsonse data before POL gets impatient and quits trying

Down again :(

Appears to me that all of this last month most of our downtime has been due to preperation of the new Xbox users.. why is it they put us through this without some kinda of compensation to make it a bit more bearable! like a month free? Not that it would fix anything, but less reason to complain maby.

I think we have lost 30+ hours of play time in the last month.. that sound about right?

It means your POL program cannot find the server. Either your network connection is down (it's not) or the servers are off the internet.

What's funny is that I get the 0011 and 0206 interchangabley

What the **** do they have to do that takes 4 friggin days at a time to do? Are they busy counting the sh*tloads of money they make from us each and every month and until that's done, they can't fix the servers that they f*ed up during the last two maintenances? This is bullsh*t. Guess I'll have to go spend time with the wife now. . .
