I will be there come September 30, and no server congestion/fatigue/surplus/anima cooldown/leve cooldown/software mouse/unoptimized engine/clunky UI will stand between me and Eorzea.
I was hyped at the start of the summer. Canceled my preorder for the CE last week. I'll probably jump in on XIV sometime closer to the PS3 launch.
I just can't afford, in both time and money, to put in my months of XIV while they're still working out the launch blues and huge obvious problems.
