The latest live letter from the producer just went up.Here. No subtitles yet but it shows some great footage of Thanalan and Uldah and some port towns around Limsa Lominsa. I've stopped playing the beta until they have more consistent playtimes. Right now I'm not interested in burning out on content before actual release. Being limited to Gridania is bad enough but having to restart 4 times sucks. I will second Parn's assessment of the game. I'm a much bigger fan of action combat for MMOs but there's enough going on skills-wise endgame in 1.0, I'm sure ARR will be just as interesting. There's alot more mobility required for combat which is a good thing.

This is not accurate. There have been no announcements as of yet. We are in week 3 of phase 1, each phase is supposed to be roughly 4 weeks with 1-2 weeks between each phase per the roadmap published late last year. They do reserve the right to change their testing schedule as needed and their stance is that the game will launch when it's good and ready. Realistically, do not expect a retail release until late summer at the earliest.

Goddamn, is that ever cool shit. Certainly have this on my radar still. The other few friends of mine who played with me / us are still on board, too, as a side note.

Quote from: Letter from the Producer Live V
Additionally, the Gate of Nald, which was originally sealed off, will be opened.
Best change ever.

New Letter from the Producer is up but nothing terribly interesting. I did stumble upon a relatively new interview with Yoshida I hadn't seen before and thought I'd share.

Beta phase 2 will also be in late April :(

That was my response. "Eh... well, let's see how it looks... sweet mother of God. I needs it."

Beta Phase 2 begins this weekend and will see the integration of game pad controls. Another round of invites has gone out. Good luck!

Got mine. Score! Now I can play it, say I like it, and then get to level 15 and never play again!
