Anyone hoping for a PS3 beta code who did not get one this morning?

Nada so far.  Was hoping to test the PS3 client rather than PC this time.  No big deal, really.

I didn't register for the beta or anything, the email said that people who had an XIV account would get further instructions. Am I just supposed to register on the site or something?

I take it they've delayed the uploading of V 1.0 characters? Or is there something special I'm supposed to do after loading up the game in order to access my old characters?

This game seems way more hardware intensive than in the previous beta phase I was in. Running this on low everything: ((. My card is not great., but still.

Do not use the current 320.18 WHQL drivers as it seems to be a bit of an unstable lemon with alot of games.

Forget the games, it seems to be an unstable lemon just for operating a computer with period. This must be emphasized: everyone with nVidia cards must not use 320.18. We've even had reports of cards dying I believe, this is profoundly fucked up.

Funny you say that like a week after my nvidia card died.  Got me for a second until I realized it started dying with much older drivers first. Oh well.

Funny that my GPU died though, and a week later (last night) I got into the ARR beta.  Wasn't planning on playing beta even if characters transferred over to live regardless, but still I found it humorous.   

On a different related note, wasn't thrilled about the FATE system and I hope the FATE system isn't as annoying as GW2's dynamic events were.  I hated how you would save a village from stampeding minotaurs and no sooner than you turned your back, the event was already restarting.  FF14ARR doesn't seem as centered around them as GW2 was so I'm hoping they are less annoyingly frequent.

An hour later, outside John's farm:

John: "My lambs! You sick bastard, what have you done?! ... what are you doing now? Why are you swinging that axe around at noth... wait. Are you trying to attack ladybugs with a double-bladed axe? What the hell is wrong with you?!"

Me: "I'm on the path... to becoming a HERO!"  *kills the rest of John's lambs, then loots the chests in his house.*    "For JUSTICE!"

They posted on Twitter there were issues with getting the codes out to ver. 1.0 players. I would suggest you go ahead and apply so that you're at least on that mailing list.

Ah ok, cool. That's what I get for being too lazy to check the beta forums ;)

Does anyone else find this game too "silent"? I'm not a fan of the lack of a world chat option... having the best means of communicating with people or talking as /shout really kills off a lot of the social aspect I enjoy in a MMO.

This is The Realm, released in 1996... my first MMO. It had a more featured chat and social system than ARR has right now. It also had the option to change your room IRC style or turn off chat. Why is it that 17 years later we have less options? A lot of people play MMOs for the social aspect, and right now it feels like a huge world where it's rare to see anyone talk other than a NPC. I log in, I play, I enjoy the looks and the mechanics and never end up staying on for long because it always ends up seeming like I'm playing the game with the slow story and speed of play you get in a MMO but with the social prowess of a single player game, and I realize I'd probably have more fun playing a well paces and written single player game instead.

I really want to get into this more... but the "silence" drags it down for me.
