Naoki Yoshida’s Emotional Closing Speech

Just wanted to put this video up now that the server issues are taken care of and we can get back into the spirit of FFXIV.

For those of you unawares, during the time of early access and the first week of launch, there was a lot of anger and frustration focused at FFXIV because of login issues – especially here in the NA/EU servers. As of Wednesday of this week the issues are corrected.

Before the corrections, whenever someone wanted to log in, they were lucky to get in once a day after trying for hours and hours. I for one was very frustrated on this. Not enough to quit the game or demand a refund, but enough that I knew what a great game was waiting for me underneath the login screen, and how frustrating it was not to be able to play.

Now that things are corrected everyone should be able to log in and play without issue. These past couple of days I’ve been enjoying meeting all my friends, working on my marauder class, finding all sorts of easter eggs in the game, grouping with FATE parties, unlocking GC ranks and gear, and going on dungeon runs.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this video with English subs and are able to be in that moment when the game was launched and that you can all log in and stat your journeys.
