Anyone currently playing (currently is wrong, because noone is ‘currently’ playing) the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn beta will know about Error 3102. It’s a pain that have stopped most players from playing for the last 24 hours. Well, in an hour from now that should be fixed, but since players have lost a day of playtime, the beta will be extended. Square-Enix issued this following statement:
Thank you very much for your participation in the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Test.
We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with Worlds hosted on the North American and European datacenter which is preventing certain characters from logging into the game.
An emergency maintenance, taking place between Aug. 18, 2013 9:30 p.m. to Aug. 19, 2013 12:30 a.m. (PDT), is currently underway to address characters experiencing this issue.
Phase 4 of the Beta Test was originally scheduled to conclude on Aug. 19, 2013 at 2:00 a.m. (PDT). However, given the fact that affected characters are numbering in the tens of thousands and the time it will take to address the situation including the time required for the emergency maintenance, we will be extending the Beta Test until Aug. 19, 2013 8:00 a.m. (PDT) for Worlds hosted on the North American and European datacenter.
We hope for your continued participation in the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Test.
* The Beta Test will end as scheduled on Aug. 19, 2013 2:00 a.m. (PDT) for Worlds hosted on the Japanese datacenter.
We deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused by this prolonged issue and thank you for your patience.
