The congestion issues of launch now a thing of the past and apologies accepted, we've got all the time in the world to play Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Sounds like the perfect time for a live stream to me. Update: Hey now, hey now — the stream is over.
Not only does server congestion keep folks from playing, it makes the time they do eke out to play serious business, with no time to explore, or joke around, or do stupid things like this:
I was in that thing for a half-hour on Saturday afternoon. Eventually I hit level 15 as a Marauder and swapped back to Lancer, where I kicked all kinds of ass from level 17 to 26. I took on Ifrit and managed to be the only one in my party who survived the fight, which was nice.
And now I am here, streaming the game live for an hour or so, to celebrate the sheer joy of being able to play. Come join me, won't you?
