That means I'll have to create the Linkshell again, and have to invite everyone again. Although this time I will promote more members so they can invite the other forum users while myself or Heicko are away.
Square-Enix had this to say:
"Thank you for participating in the FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Test.
The current Beta Test Phase 3 (Beta 3) will end on August 25 at 5:00pm (PDT), and we plan to start the Open Beta Test in early September.
We look forward to your continued help and support.
*After Beta 3 ends, all character data will be deleted.
*For the period during which a beta test is not being conducted, players will not be able to access the Players’ Site.
*Once the test’s character data have been deleted, all blogs and images on the Players’ Site will also be deleted."
Damn them all! also remember at 8:00 to 9:30 (GMT) on Aug. 24, 2010, Square-Enix will be performing maintenance on all Worlds. During this period, FINAL FANTASY XIV will be unavailable.
