Regarding the Schedule for the Expansion of the NA Data CenterJul 28, 2022 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4459756/2ae84412f3ad52c855b368a4249be1b6b650031d.jpg Hello everyone, this is FFXIV Producer & Director Naoki Yoshida. As we revealed in January in the “Regarding the Expansion of FFXIV’s Operations” announcement, we are planning to expand the North American Data Center in two phases. Though the first phase was scheduled to take place in August 2022, the server vendor has informed us that the delivery of the equipment will be delayed due to the semiconductor shortage. We have tried to coordinate with related parties in hopes of finding a solution, but ultimately a delay proved unavoidable. As a result, it will be difficult to keep to our original schedule, and we regrettably have to postpone the first phase of the expansion to November 2022. I sincerely apologize to those of you who have been looking forward to the first phase, which will add four Worlds under a new logical data center. We will share further schedule details as soon as they are decided, and ask for your patience in the meantime. As for the second phase, the schedule remains unchanged, with the abovementioned new logical data center to receive an additional four Worlds around spring or summer of 2023. Thank you for your continued support.

Patch 6.18 NotesJul 5, 2022 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4459756/9ab053ccd7964c335ac2f24720144b5ac4b40e80.jpg Patch 6.18 brings a number of additions and refinements to the game, including the Data Center Travel system and the new Japanese data center, Meteor. Notice Regarding the Patch 6.18 Maintenance: Players who logged out in a World that is not their Home World prior to the maintenance will be automatically returned to their Home World upon logging in. Due to the number of players, there may be congestion issues immediately after the maintenance, so transfers may take some time to complete. Should there be a need to restart the game during transfer, players will still be in the queue until the transfer process is completed. The transfer process will not be interrupted if players minimize their screens. If the target World is congested (e.g., due to login rush after maintenance or when logins are concentrated), that World will be temporarily disabled as a destination. Due to the high number of visit requests per minute, the servers are currently unable to keep up with the high server load. We have temporarily suspended the Data Center Travel system and will gradually open this feature as we monitor the situation. Read the full patch notes on The Lodestone.
