Update on connection issuesI know many of you are still affected by the login and character creation restrictions, so I'd like to update you on the progress of the steps we are going to take to improve the situation.Current state of servers
So that as many players as possible can connect to existing servers or create characters there, our teams are currently monitoring the density of zones in each World 24 hours a day and activating or deactivating connection restrictions very precisely so that all Worlds are operating at full capacity. We still have connection peaks that exceed 24 users. These overload some of our instance servers and also cause periods of inactivity.
Maintenance scheduled for Wednesday, September 4 (Japanese time)
The addition of the new Worlds as well as the changes to the mission tool will be completed by tomorrow. We will then enter the last phase of internal testing for these features. If everything works as expected, then we will perform maintenance on all Worlds on Wednesday (Japanese time). Once we add the new Worlds and redistribute the Mission Tool server load to other less populated Worlds, we believe the connection issues experienced by a large number of players should be resolved.
When Worlds are available again, after the maintenance is complete, we expect that many players will try to connect to the game. To prevent connection issues from reoccurring, we will be very careful when restarting each World. . Note that there may still be a bit of congestion at this point.
Development teams are currently working hard to correct these issues and provide players with a stable environment in which to experience all that Eorzea has to offer.
Free subscription extension
To thank our loyal fans who were unable to log into the game or create a character during Early Access and in the days following the game's launch, the development team is considering offering a 7-day free subscription. to the players. This also includes non-Legacy version 1.0 players. The subscription extension will be effective once the maintenance of Wednesday's servers has been completed. You can find more information about the subscription extension in another post, as soon as everything has been confirmed.
