I woke up around 5am EDT to play but I was not able due to congestion and got below message:

By looking at the current progress of the Version Update, we are expecting to see heavy traffic for the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Test Phase 4 as of now.

Because of this, we will be implementing a very strict login limitation to avoid All World outages and Login Server outages from the 2:00 start for 3 to 4 hours.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but in any case that you are unable to login, we please ask that you try again at a later time.

Thank you for your understanding.

I was able to login at 5:20am and about to create my character šŸ™‚

Update August 16, 2013 5:47am

I got stucked in character creation screen and was not able to choose Sargatanas world in World Selection. For some reasons, all NA/EU worlds are missing. I assume it’s because of the congestion.

Logout and relogin seem to fix it. Now NA/EU world shows up fine. Of course, the name that I wanted “Sakura Kinomoto” and “Asuna Yuuki” were taken already šŸ˜¦

Haruka Niimi is all ready to play in Sargatanas world.
