According to a report from IGN, anyone who registered for Final Fantasy XIV before 11:59 PM PDT on September 9th will get an extra week of gameplay, completely free. Since its launch, Final Fantasy XIV has had several server issues which caused players to rage on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Does this compensation make things right for you?
Final Fantasy XIV Players To Receive Compensation
On their official page the post read:
“Since the beginning of official service on August 27, 2013, the number of users attempting to access the game has significantly exceeded our initial estimates. While we are pleased to see support for the game reach far beyond our expectations, the servers were not prepared to handle this influx of players. As a result, our servers have been pushed beyond maximum capacity. “In order to allow access to as many users as possible, we have implemented login and character creation restrictions. We understand, however, that these restrictions have greatly inconvenienced our players. “Because login and character creation restrictions have hindered our ability to provide quality service, all Final Fantasy XIV service accounts will receive an additional seven days of free play time.”
“To resolve this issue, we will be performing maintenance from September 3, 2013, at 5:00 PM to September 4, 2013, at 3:00 AM PDT, for the purpose of increasing the number of available Worlds, reducing stress on the Duty Finder servers, and increasing the number of concurrent log ins allowed for each server.”
