There is an incredible demand for it Final Fantasy XIV. So much so that people struggle to get in and play. Director and producer Naoki Yoshida issued a statement are about some of the FFXIV congestion relief measures designed to help the increased number of players. Some of the new methods of dealing with demand include increasing concurrent login limits on FFXIV servers and implementing automatic logout. Future efforts will also include new worlds and data centers.
First, Yoshida talked about the increased concurrent login limits in FFXIV. In the game, only a certain number of people can be logged into a server at a time. He notes that the numbers of the North American servers have already increased with an upgrade. He noted, “Continued optimization of this new equipment has enabled us to increase the maximum number of concurrent logins in the NA data centers by 18,000, or approximately 750 per world server, starting July 16.” Yoshida also said there will eventually be an update to European servers that will increase login limits as well, but it’s working to see if a smaller increase is possible there as well.
The other measure involved dealing with people who are logged in, but do nothing and do not play. Yoshida asked that people who are not active, but in FFXIV, log out so other people can create and play characters. He asked people to queue and wait, to make sure the servers are stable, noting that only paid subscribers can use the queues. Auto Logout is now part of the game from FFXIV 5.58, so people who are inactive indefinitely will be logged out.
As for the possibility of new servers and data centers, Yoshida said those were being considered FFXIV 7.0. He said they would evaluate after 6.0 and endwalker. He noted that the semiconductor shortage and travel restrictions for in-person visits to data centers are preventing Square Enix from making immediate expansion plans. However, he reminded people that there is going to be a data center in Oceania. And he noted that the company wants to move the timeline forward if possible to help FFXIV congestion relief.
This occurs after a huge popularity FFXIV. World of Warcraft streamer Asmongold started playing the game on July 3, 2021. In addition, the Complete Edition was temporarily sold out in the Square Enix Store. Patch 5.58 will also be available on July 20, 2021.
