I’ll try it, I suppose. But.. well.. not frothing at the mouth here. I’m also wondering why it’s not possible to download the client beforehand; that’d make things easier when service does commence. It can’t be that big a bug… can it?

Thank you for your patience! FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test will begin on Sep. 2, 2010 at 02:00 (GMT)!

Dunno what region that’s for. The whole region thing – don’t like it. Will ignore it as much as I can. If I can’t see it, it’s not there. (Does that go for my ass too?)

Oh I know! WTT The Secret World beta invite for FFXIV Open Beta invite. What do you mean, it’s a crappy trade?!

Okay, ew! Do not go googling “Big Bug” images unless you have a strong stomach or are an entomologist or something.
