FFXIV: ARR Open Beta Error 3102 arouse anger from Thousands of Players
Last night while enjoying Final Fantasy XIV,of which Final Fantasy XIV Gil is the virtual currency, my playtime was halted by a disconnection from the server.
Whatever happened during the server outages yesterday appears to be significant, because it has halted play for tens of thousands of players. Many have taken to gaming forums to voice their displeasure, some going as far as to say they've canceled their pre-order.
The cause of the issue is unknown, and presently there is no fix. It came shortly after the announcement of Square Enix breaking the open beta record with over 150,000 players concurrently logged in. The game's popularity has been no secret, and at this point that just means more unhappy customers.
As long as the issue is resolved before release there's really no merit to complaining. That doesn't mean Square Enix won't take heat, though. MMOs are very fragile during release, and all it takes is one disheartening experience for players to log out of the game and never look back.
