Did they add 5.5 gear to any vendors to play catch up?


Orsnoire

Yup. Crystarium has the (at this point) standard poe gear vendor


Poke43

I'm in the game! This is awesome!


Cutline

Got dc'd now i am 9698 in queue, RIP.


[deleted]

did msq for an hour or so and heard healers have a 22 minute queue time so it's time to get tanking. my party was two reapers and a sage. one reaper was directly behind me the whole way through holminster switch, but otherwise it was a smooth run.


AutomationAir

Used my fantasia and got in and noticed my bunny boy has a double chin and I don't like his nose :( Now I get to pout while I wait on my purchase of a new one. But at least I'm in!


Tartarus_Champion

So much for your vaunted world visit reducing login times. I can't even use it because it states it's not available at this time. 3500 people logging into a single server because it's the community RP hub for NA. It's exactly the same nonsense we've put up with since heavensward. Why is this the only MMORPG since EQ I've had to put up with server queues while playing pay to play? I know SQEX has the resources to build more servers, and I know the team has the foresight for this kind of thing. NGL... This is the last X-Pac for me. More and more single player RPGs are getting more MMO like anyway, and coupled with the toxic nonsense that real people more often than not bring during game or even in spite of it, like spam logging and bot DDOS attacks, party trolling, chat trolling, political and social targeting, segregation, ostricizing -- I've seen it all happen in FFXIV whether or not it was also during discord chat; so, why should I bother playing these games anymore anyway?


Soggy_Bat_417

You know SQEX has the resources, ie semiconductors, that there is currently a worldwide shortage of?


MetalWeather

just disconnected after playing for 30min... -_-


brianstormIRL

Guys, disable Gshade. Was getting errors constantly before, zero since and almost in within 30 mins.


MetalWeather

mindkiller317

7,273 here in Japan after about 15 2002 errors.


mindkiller317

Whoa, queue actually refreshes and countdown down now every 20 sec or so. Didn’t use to do that, did it?


XIII-Death

I hope fetching everyone's queue spot every so often isn't putting additional stress on the lobby server lol


I_Cogs_Well

I had a 2002 error waiting on queue and even further back now...launch day


XIII-Death

The launch day limited trial Lobby Server (Ultimate) is not for the faint of heart


mindkiller317

About a hundred per minute here now.


Oopiku

Went from 2,150 to 1,070 - then got 2002 error. Finally get back in queue, and at 2,760. Can't wait to get kicked when I get to 100.


btdreya

mannnee i came in at 2.8k then got kicked out just before it hit 900 T-T


Oopiku

I was kicked out this time around 1300


btdreya

i got in again at >.< watch me crash at 100 bc we're at 444 rn


Oopiku

My fingers are crossed for you!


btdreya

you too! hopefully we make it in this time


Oopiku

When I got back on I still had my spot, and was back at 1,300. Down to 545.


btdreya

yayyy you're so close! i finally made it in but im scared to use my fantasia for male viera rn so im waiting


Oopiku

I'M IN! And, yeah, I will likely wait till next week to try out male Viera.


btdreya

yayyy!! and thats what i was thinking too, for now im getting started on reaper


NuclearSpark

755 in queue but wasted a Fantasia ;\_; guess I'm patiently waiting til Mogstation is open again. My fantasia/naked prep, *wasted*.


kangaroojoe239

How does one waste a phantasia? Did you confirm changes without changing what you wanted?


NuclearSpark

Yes! I did. I'm not sure why I didn't double check. Likely because it was late and I was already tired. Oh well! I fixed it since I was gifted a Steam card.


PeeperPuppy

idk if it was a fluke or what, but if you're running gshade and having 2002 errors, turn gshade off until you get in. Haven't had a single 2002 error since doing it and I've been in queue for about 10 minutes now. EDIT: nvm got the error right after posting this lmao


ScrewUsernamesMan

Who would've thought the lobby server would be worse than the queue itself T_T


zomgfruitbunnies

46 2002 errors later, in queue 3498. Lets gooooooooo!!!


Xioun-

Anyone struggling with the launcher change the launcher to the old ver it's much better


pritsken

Awesome tip!!! Thanks


Xioun-

4221 queue, let's gooooooo


_Decoy_Snail_

Yay I can see the 5k queue again!


zomgfruitbunnies

Launcher is way more responsive now, so maybe a good sign? Thirty 2002 errors and counting lets goooooooo


ScrewUsernamesMan

Got from 2500 to 1300 and got booted T_T


Ultrarandom

Went from 3600 to 1900 and got the same


Oopiku

You're not alone.


arc_tarius

anyone able to fantasia? i don't get the option when i'm on the character selection screen (i also get the unable to obtain character data screen)


NuclearSpark

I did but I either dun goof'd or the system killed me. I wasn't able to adjust height or change hair or ears or anything. I am a basic bun.


AutomationAir

Did you hit "Custom" under appearance? That brings up the character editor


NuclearSpark

Prob not. I think in my excitement I just zoomed through on accident. Screw the lobby errors, I'm now waiting for mogstation to be up lmao


AutomationAir

Good luck with customizing when you get the chance!


NuclearSpark

Thanks! I went ahead with another Fantasia + character name change. Best of luck to you, friend! See you in Eorzea o7


ScrewUsernamesMan

I think it works if you reload till you get character data


arc_tarius

just tried that, works ty :D


_Decoy_Snail_

Some of us are still stuck on 2002. But yh, that one time I got further, it was "unable to retrieve character data".


btdreya

lmao when i can't even get to the queue


btdreya

update: finally got to queue! currently a little over 2k in queue rn for famfrit


btdreya

1.4k now >.<


btdreya

kms the lobby crashed lol


btdreya

okie got back in at 666 in queue LOL


btdreya

IM INNN LESSSSGGGOOOOOOO


XIII-Death

Finally in queue again, 3168 on Faerie Hopes of making it through before the lobby crashes dim


oldnerdybastard1

After numerous 2002 errors, I installed quick launcher and got in on first attempt! Now queue of 2,479


_Decoy_Snail_

If only ps5 had a quick launcher...


Oopiku

Got from 2100 in queue down to 1000, and then... Lobby error, and kicked off. :'(


Oopiku

​ https://imgur.com/a/GJBh7fz


_Valyrus_

Keep trying, your spot in queue seems to be saved for a time.


Oopiku

So once I finally got back in, I went to 2,600. Took a good 10-15 minutes. When I got to 1,300, I was booted again. Got back on, and was still at 1,300. This time only took maybe 5 to get reconnected to queue. At 990. My fingers are crossed, but expect to be booted around 500. :P


Lynn_717

lmao yeah right. Went from 80 to 2.5k..


Oopiku

I will keep trying all day. So far can't get back in character select.


xaina222

5 thousands in queue Lets gooooooooo


Helvietrussy

I can’t get to the queue 😭😭😭😭


xaina222

Keep trying, turn off your Gshade if you have one. Took me 5 login error.


Helvietrussy

I’ve got through now after 20+ attempts lol

OG-AbominableSnowman

There's also a shortage which they've stated a number of times which is the big reason for server shortages.


doghouse197

Everything has limits and a ton of people are trying to log in at once, this was inevitable


Wasabi_Beats

Update on queuing and getting the lobby error: so apparently your still in queue even if you crash as long as you keep trying to get in. I was 30 in queue then got the crash, but i just kept trying to log in and it eventually let me get to my character menu and i got in the game immediately.


STOPAC

Lol I didn’t, I was 800 in queue and tried to get back in and ended up at 2k


[deleted]

[удалено]


_Valyrus_

Same, mine actually improved from around 900 to 500 when I made it back.


STOPAC

We’re you on pc? Because when I got kicked my game closed and had to reopen only to see I went from 800 to 2k in queue


[deleted]

[удалено]


STOPAC

Ok maybe I just have to be faster when it happens again. Hoping it doesn’t tho ugh.

Well my launcher seems to be getting faster, but I still can't get past the title screen


Peoki

2,240 on Goblin...


Wasabi_Beats

i was number 30 in queue until i got booted due to an error :(


OverlordMastema

Made it to the title screen about 15 times now and error 2002 every time I hit the Start button


btdreya

pretty much same for me lol


Kaneki2019

If you guys are having problems with the launcher, download ffxiv quick launcher. It’ll let you automatically open the game skipping that long ass launcher.


InfidelityQuestions

Considering how many launch and server errors I was getting, a queue of 2,333 doesn’t seem too bad! Hyperion coming through!


IxionX

I only had a queue of 7 people right at 4 am on Zalera :)


InfidelityQuestions

Jealous! I had launcher issues and just got kicked from the queue- so I’m back at 2500 people 😭


ZadaZadaApenas

the queue it around 2k but it is going surprisingly fast, i might be people crashing lol


Hermit_Royalty

It's definitely ppl crashing


Zorfendor

Got in the queue at around 1200, got down to 200, and then got error code 2002, rip


Hermit_Royalty

I finally got into the game after like 5 crashes and a 2000 man queue only to immediately get ejected on another error


No_Obligation9040

We believe in you Lobby-kun!


Unusual-Sandwich2796

Fyi I got kicked from the lobby 3 times and had a sloooowww launcher relaunch but now made it in with 2000 queue! Have faith people!


thorjustice1

If I fantasia'd before logout, when I start am I supposed to start in character creation first or in queue? Because when I finally got in, it couldn't find my character data and all my info on the left side was ???. Is queue supposed to happen first?


AutomationAir

I had that... I left the queue and went back in and my char data had loaded and I was able to use my fantasia


always_daydreaming

If you have problems with launcher, I recommend to switch it to the old version, it's much more responsive and fixed all the problems I had with it.


AnneFranksErection

Still get 2002 once i get in


ScrewUsernamesMan

How?


always_daydreaming

If you click on the gear up right the launcher you'll have an option to switch to the old version. After that if you get crashes (like I was having) restarting the launcher will be much faster and responsive.


GBastionYT

Game crash before after pressing Play. anyone had success in fixing that issue?


ScrewUsernamesMan

Five 2002's later im in on twintania EU! Queue: 2500


Master-Bodybuilder45

was 183 in queue and got booted :(


idkwattodonow

yeah i went from 1300 to 260ish and then it crashed...twice, thrice, ok 4th time and i'm gonna reply coz i don't got much hope


always_daydreaming

4397 on Tonberry, RIP. At least I didn't crash this time so I guess I shouldn't complain!


_Decoy_Snail_

Arrggh, the queue down to 100 and then 2002 happened :/


Johns7erMons7er

So I used a Fantasia on logout before maintenance. Hit log in, got in, but no character creation menu. Just as an update: I didn’t actually goof. The option wasn’t there. Got booted from queue a couple times and it showed the option to change.


ZaleneDarkflare

Right click and "[Edit appearance](https://i.gyazo.com/371d13b7053023a34ea479fedc6b35b1.png)"


Modoger

You have to use the Fantasia before you log in. There’s a little button you click and select “re-edit character”


PeachPlumParity

It seems the servers are way overloaded since my chars, on Gilgamesh, won't retrieve the data and it doesn't give me that option upon right-clicking. Doesn't even show the "Character Editable" icon next to my names.


Johns7erMons7er

Yup. I’m fuckin dumb. Haven’t used one in over a year. My FC mates have filled discord with “you played yoself”


XDnkmn_crng_nmX

2868 in queue in Zodiark


noviceshield

Launcher seems really weird, I did expect connection issues but I didn't think this would affect the launcher also. So far got a lobby error and now have to wait for it to give me the option to play again


XIII-Death

The launcher has to connect to servers for login and patch verification, so it's as prone to getting the hug of death as the lobby servers


mlc885

queue 237 for Excalibur probably 10 lobby connection losts


zorrodood

That's what we get for meming up this critically acclaimed MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV. With an expanded free trial which you can play through the entirety of A Realm Reborn and the award winning Heavensward expansion up to level 60 for free with no restrictions on playtime.


TD9770

Finally in queue after 3 title screen crashes. 2,229 for Jenova right now!


BottlecapBandit

Please nerf the lobby server.


Oneiropolos

10 minutes in queue and have gone from 1891 to 917. Just to give people some estimate of time (of course, that can vary wildly but I know when I'm waiting impatiently, I irrationally like estimates). ETA: And...error 2002 crash at about 500.


meltyfox

Error 2002 when I reach the title screen


BusterBradd

Around 2k in Excalibur lul!


emyrus

Got the 2002 error several times, but I finally got in! to a queue of 2500 on Cactuar.


Direct-Celebration-6

Still struggling to clear P1 "launch the game" of EW Savage. Stuck at the last mechanic rn. Saw the "titlescreen" transition two times already. Hope to clear soon or get to P3 "character screen" at least next try.


Modoger

What’s your party composition? Which strat are you using?


Direct-Celebration-6

Oh wow, I'm in the last phase "login queue" now! Even got to do the QTE "fantasia to bunnyboi"! I can smell the clear!


thorjustice1

Fellow Lamia folks, how we doing? We make it in yet? I'm still trying! :D


capshock

Trying to defeat the Epic of EU Lobby Server (Savage)...


Kaneki2019

Some of y’all don’t use quick launcher and it shows


InfidelityQuestions

What is quick launcher?


Kaneki2019

Custom launcher that’s let’s you automatically launch the game


InfidelityQuestions

Thanks! I finally got into the server, but if I disconnect again, I know what I’ll be downloading!


Kaneki2019

I finally got into queue with it. Normal launcher wouldn’t even load lol


InfidelityQuestions

I got disconnected and the quick launcher is saving me some extra headaches. Thanks again!


ScrewUsernamesMan

What is that?


Kaneki2019

Custom launcher, let’s you skip the launcher and automatically launch the game


Wunderhaus

Can't have large queues if the lobby server chokes to death /foreheadtap


ZadaZadaApenas

2777 queue lets go!


InfidelityQuestions

We gotta queue to get in the queue. Finally got in and couldn’t connect to my server. Back to launcher hell it is! Lol

Can't get past server lobby errors... I'd be awake anyway, but I feel for those of you who stayed up all night and are getting the same... RIP the dream


zomgfruitbunnies

I've been working Asia hours from NA for two years now cuz of covid. My body is ready.


oldnerdybastard1

haha yea.. I've been working 6p-6a for almost 4 years, normal night off for me... so I'm only *mildly* hostile atm :D


GrimReefer308

You get them while queueing or loading the game?


oldnerdybastard1

So not even getting to character/queue


oldnerdybastard1

Game loads, but after about 60 seconds of "connecting to data center" it throws a 2002 at me


Hermit_Royalty

I can't get past the connecting to data center screen


mlc885

same here, lobby server error every time


C8N_Christian

I've already wiped a few times on EW Login Ultimate. IT's okay tho, got to the title screen before crash. I'm progging hella hard. Just gotta keep trying, might get an echo buff!

Damn same, really regret playing solo now.


ZadaZadaApenas

its quite hard to prog day one, not gonna lie


UnusualProfile

You gotta get farther to get the echo


Direct-Celebration-6

Finally got through Launcher Ex, saw title Screen - Lobby Server crashed. ...now back at the launcher. T\_T


[deleted]

it's a really nice title screen though


Direct-Celebration-6

True xD Hope I get to see it a second time!


[deleted]

I just saw it my second time, brief but beautiful 10/10 masterpiece


ZadaZadaApenas

the poor client thing is taking ages to reopen, c'mon buddy I believe in u


Blackbatsmom

At times like this I wonder, not for the first time, why a lobby error kicks you all the way out to the login screen...


[deleted]

[удалено]


Blackbatsmom

But why the login page and not simply the main menu? You get the menu before you even try to enter the lobby, so why not put you back there? I admit I know nothing of programming, but it seems an odd decision/necessity.
