It is in the August update, just not enabled initially until it's bug fixed. Hopefully it'll be toggled on within a week or so.

Our current plan is to implement Sortie as scheduled for the August 10 version update but temporarily remove the NPC curating the content to prevent players from accessing it. As soon as the bugs have been properly addressed, we will perform an emergency maintenance to restore the NPC in question.

Fear mongering is fun OP....

So long as they update the version with the new gear, I'm not heartbroken if they want to fix it before they release the content

Well, I'd rather they fixed it than to throw it out there and give everyone a bad impression. There are players who returned for the free-to-play campaign who would be looking at this content to see if it's worth re-subscribing, and the last thing they want is to turn off those players.

They should increase free to play by as many days as it takes them to fix it!

stuff like this should not be launched during free access anyway, people with 500 alts will spam it and sell anything of value at inflated price for RMT

They shouldnt do any free access campaign at all. All it does is adding more mules and bots. Also the rate this is happening is unfair to the payers. We dont get a free month.
Or make it maybe once a year.
There aren't many new poeple playing this game.

Well I want to see if content is decent and hence pay to play. I have not paid for FFXI for years waiting for this new content and Emp+2/3 finally!

They shouldn't do things during freeplay, as a costumer, sure, that makes sense.

As a business, they absolutely will do everything to get people to stay subbed and raise metrics. Nothing would look better than 150,000 people doing Sortie. And that's all that matters.

But they can't even do that right.

You could literally complete all the new story and most end game content if you just played each return free period... dumb honestly, they do it too much imo.

The free-to-play is extra long this time. Normally it's 10 days. This time it's 17. Then there is the extra buffer days of one or two days in either direction where they just flip the switch whenever to turn it on and then the code does some rolling through accounts slowly turning them off. That part was always weird as sometimes one mule would be able to log in a day or two after it was supposed to end and another would die just after the end was scheduled. You would think they could just flip the switch, but then again. Mama Mia! That's some spicy spaghetti code!

The strange thing is that their site where you can buy accounts or move servers. That discount starts and ends right at the time listed afaik.

Free play: It's whatever.
Give them money for server moving or buying an account: FIRM DEADLINES!

Big brain there.

Trying to think if I want to even bother getting any of my mules through the past to get them the six Shadowreign Era trusts since that campaign is going right now.

Hmm those are recent. I must be going off the initial ones they did where the campaign was only like once every 9 months or so.

Or I'm just old and getting brain rot.



My mom just sent me that picture today. Sorry if it breaks anyone's soul.

I'm not trying to change jobs too much when I come back. I am just here to finish TVR. Thank God for Project Tako because I am also not trying to run around these adoulin zones.

You can't pay to unlock wardrobes without paying for a character though??
