    I notice that there's spots for Naruto or Bleach names, but not One Piece names.
    People with One Piece names have good taste.

    I saw a Mugi Wara today.

    I don't know if that's considered bad or clever.

    Not gonna lie, first guy I rolled I named "Bill Paxton" because what the fuck, he's awesome. I knew I wouldn't be playing him long, it was more to check out the other starting cities. I also typically name my first Alt "Fork Spoon".

    I think the worst is the people who try to name themselves after someone/something Japanese but don't realize that First/Last ordering is flipped.

    Well, with people logging off at the end of the night, it was easier to get into instances.

    Managed to get Ifrit down before the servers came down. It was a fun fight, a bit on the easy side though; we got him in the first try.

    Tomorrow, hopefully, I can get my damn chocobo finally.

    Discovered Upper La Noscea tonight, an awesome looking area with unique music that I didn't see in Phase 4.

    Evidently it also makes a great fishing spot.

    @GnomeTank It honestly is only Square Enix's fault in that they chose a very shitty service to sell their codes directly. You would have done far better buying it from GreenManGaming.

    In fact, I'd suggest having the charge reverted and getting it on GMG anyway. Cause you'll get it cheaper.

    This is what i did. Worked great, GMG got me my code in like 5 seconds.

    That bingo is missing my personal favorite terrible idea, which should have been combined with the top-middle space: LAST name is an honorific. Chan, Sama, etc. That's much worse than the first name in my opinion.

  • Professor SnugglesworthProfessor Snugglesworth Registered User regular
    It's also missing "combine two separate FF names together, even if they aren't from the same game". I've seen plenty of combinations like "Vivi Almassy".

    I thought "Terra Celes" was pretty good, though.

    They can take my Highwind when they pry it from my cold, dead hands. I have been waiting since 1991 for games worth playing a Dragoon in, including making versions of them starting with Morrowind mods up through Skyrim.

    You know you all did it too. :P

    Dominos Pizzahut was probably the silliest one I saw yesterday. My two friends that are brothers in real life each made a character and should be in the guild by now.

    Older brother is a Lalafell Marauder named BIg Bro and the younger brother is a Roegadyn Lancer named Little Bro.

    Yeah, they totally went there.

    I looked at this picture, and I briefly thought "Why are you posting a photo here?" before my brain noticed things that weren't so normal.

    In my defense I only just got up, but I don't think that's ever happened before. Dammit Square.

    I'm pretty sure I saw every bad name category from that Bad Name Bingo that Beezel posted... at least, amongst those I understand (don't know anime well enough to know them when I see them).

    In fact, that was my first clue that I'd joined a non-PA guild accidentally; the guy who kept saying 'welcome' whenever people joined was named Drizzt Do'Urden. Yeah, I met the guy who got the actual full name.

    Servers were going down at 3am my time. I went to bed at 2:15. I woke up at like 6:30 to use the restroom. First thought was "... I bet maintenance is done with". Had to force myself back to sleep. I might have a problem. Game too good.

    So probably no one knows me here cause I tend to lurk and read the PA forums rather than post but this game just has me sooooooo excited.

    Anyway I ordered directly from SE on Friday night (CE) and I am yet to recieve my preorder code or an early access code, though I believe early access code is sent once you register pre order. They seem to bhe sorting this rubbish in NA but over here in EU theres no support until Tuesday :/ This leaves me trawling forums to get any juicy tidbit I can regarding the game. I didn't follow it all that much until recently and my friend has been playing and loves it.

    I neeeeed my codes, I ran the benchmark and the world just seems beautiful and my rig eats it up for breakfast at max settings with a 10k+ score.

    I'm thinking on going white mage end game is it better to level conjurer to 30 first then do arcanist to 15 or vice versa?

  • ArthilArthil Registered User regular
    @Hotcookie If you can, GreenManGaming and cancel your other order.

    Seriously guys, GMG.

    I'm stuck at work for another few hours, somebody tell me that the overnight maintenance actually fixed instance quests so I can look forward to finally playing this game.

    Great, the game locked up when I was about to do the little event before Ifrit and now I'm getting errors 90000 and 10102.

    To the guys I was going to do this with, sorry but it seems I'm locked out for a bit.

  • MyDcmbrMyDcmbr Registered User regular
    I just got 90000'd and now when I try to log back in I get 10102'd. :(

    Anyone else planning to go white mage? If so what order are you levelling conjurer/arcanist?

    Also does anyone know the process for cancelling their order with Square Enixand how easy/hard it is?

    Bear in mind that Arcanist starts on an island, which means you can't visit the other places until you have access to travel options. This may or may not be a problem for you. (The island is fantastic anyway, and Carbuncle is adorable.)

    Yes. My conjurer is at 20 and my arcanist is at 12. I plan on grinding out arcanist to 15 today and then just going for broke on the conjurer.

    No idea about how to cancel.

    I'm reasonably certain I could have swept the bingo board just from last night. I don't get the anime names, but I saw enough Starks to make me think I'd stepped into the wrong property.

    I will admit...sometimes, if the misspelling is really outlandish, I'll give them points for trying.
