Fanboy Stampede Endured, FFXIV Open Beta Back on Track

"Sorry about that, fanboy."
Last week, Square Enix wrote and had us announce the open beta for Final fantasy XIV. The resulting stampede was, almost unbelievably, even greater than expected, and many were left bruised, battered, and locked outside the gates hammering and howling.
This week they've written again, to let us know they've fixed all that, and you should be able to wander into the realm of Eorzea with a carefree heart.
Beyond the usual problems of a last minute bug-triggered delay and incredible server demand slowing client download to a crawl, the biggest issue to plague the open betas launch arose at registration.
But Squeenix are confident that's been sorted out now, and are encouraging you to visit the sign up page, hook yourself up with an amusingly puntastic fantasy name, receive an emailed access code, and start meandering about the highways and byways of what promises to be a particularly spectacular landscape.
So quit your complaining; horror is what betas are for. Also: roll a healer. + 10
