You'd think they'd have automated registration for prior beta testers, or alternatively, sent codes in advance.  But hey, what do I know.

That would make sense. I was able to get my OB code, but the SE Management System is hosed. I even got to put in the code, but it keeps timing out. Looks like its down for maintenance.

Server names and patch notes are up though.

I got everything through, I'll be getting the game, but I doubt I'll be able to play until tomorrow night, and even then, such a long day tomorrow.

edit : the game download is slower than an asthmatic snail with generalized cancer and AIDS.

Eorzeapedia's leaning towards Figaro apparently, but they're making a huge mistake by choosing that.  The FF6 fanboys are going to flock to it, so it's going to end up being an overpopulated server.  That and the Something Awful goons are going that way, which can be a good and a bad thing depending on your point of view.

Can't play until tomorrow anyway, so whatever.  I'll figure something out after work.

Got the code registered, trying to get in. I'm leaning toward Mysidia actually. I'll make one on Figero just in case though.

Go with Trabia instead for the other.  I'm banned from Eorzeapedia at the moment (I must have pissed an admin off, imagine that), but I've been able to influence the votes by proxy through a friend.  Figaro is no longer the lead server of choice in current polling.

C++ error  crashed me out but now the lobby isn't letting me back in. So stupid that they have their account server as the authentication server, on top of the registration server. They need to delegate that shit to other devices. Everyone smashing the members page to register their code is crashing out the login to the game.

Ok can I just tell you how fucking boring Gridania is? The town is a smaller version of Windurst with a forest canopy. The Black Shroud is Yhotar revisited with some of the most needlessly long paths ever. The intro was pretty silly too. I doubt I'll be starting here in retail. Will try Uldah once the server gets lighter. Mysidia was not a good choice, more than half the beta testers are there.

That's good to know.  Hopefully I can get registered while I'm at work so I can play on Trabia when I get back later.  Good ol' dependable iPhone.  What would I do without you.

Well that didn't take long.  Account registered.  I'll be playing when I get home from work.  Going to start in Gridania to see how much it sucks, then make my real character for Uldah.

Uldah intro is awesome. The setting is much less claustrophobic though it seems to be a pretty small town, but its organized well.

hey guys,

Can we all agree on a server? I have a lot of friends from work who won't necessarily join our guild but would roll on the same server as us.

A few of them want to know so they can reserve their names.

Eorzeapedia's going with Trabia, so that's where I'm going.  *shrug*
