2021.12.08 21:07 tipustiger05 Insertion beacon
Haven’t seen this discussed as a bug so I’m not sure if it’s a bug or working as intended, but -
After resupplying on angels crate, I get a new insertion beacon but I can’t place it down. Am I supposed to be able to? Have the developers addressed this anywhere?

2021.12.08 21:07 abelking4444 My thoughts on this launch so far...feel free to weigh in on any point I make!
First and foremost I would like to state that I LOVE this game, I have zero bad feelings or any kind of anger towards anyone or anything let it be the devs or any of the Warriors of Light. I understand to a degree why all that's happening happens after I looked into every issue in particular but I'm not gonna pretend that I'm some kind of all-knowing entity who knows better than everyone and that I know the solution for every problem because I really don't. I also don't want to pretend that I have it the worst because spending a lot of time here lately I saw that there are people who really are on the worst end of the barrel.
Now that all this is said and out of the way sadly I have to say (as much as it pains me) that all taken into consideration the launch of Endwalker was not a success.
I'm open to criticism or other opinions on this particular statement and all the other ones that I'm gonna make later on, so please feel free to share your inputs/insights with me I'm happy to listen to everyone's take on the topics.
We all know what's going on and thankfully the vast majority of people are handling it with a formidable attitude and I really am proud to be part of such a mature and healthy community. But I also believe that criticism with good intentions and not turning a blind eye on mistakes are also a crucial part of a healthy environment and that's why I took the liberty to write down my thoughts.
1. Pre-Order Codes Distribution
I really don't think this was a huge issue but I saw quite a lot of confusion about this one around here and on other platforms as well so I thought if I'm summing up everything I should mention it. To begin with my main point I'm not sure if there was even a need for a 1 week long early access. It really served as an actual release in my opinion and the full release was just a source of unnecessary confusion with the new codes location and purpose. Even just the fact that there are two separate codes to begin with was a weird concept for a lot of people and than came the issue with digging up the old emails and contacting friends who gifted you the game and so on and so forth. I saw a lot of different kind of issues with it. Was it necessary? Yes, most likely it was, I saw a few rationalizations about it and they made sense to me however after playing all the currently relevant MMOs on the market I also know that even with a longer and more complicated early access phase it can be done in a more natural way. All in all I think the whole situation was not a big deal and generally speaking I don't think it had a huge impact on anyone's judgement on the launch.
2. Downloading the patch
I think this one was exceptionally well done. I didn't see much complaining from anyone's side and with a few expansion launches behind me I can tell that it is not always trivial. Launch day is always busy no matter what and getting a solid connection to grab your new files can be just as hard as getting into the game after that. Big kudos on this one for SE.
3. Queues, Congestion and Error Messages
Yeah, the big one. Probably the most glaring problem and the one that every single player experienced no matter what. Is it annoying? Yes. Is it a reason to be an ass or to lash out at others or hate either on the game, the devs on anyone else? Absolutely NOT. I've seen and experienced heartbreak in many different forms caused by this, it really can get to the people and to a degree that is understandable. On one hand if you think about it, all that it means that the game is thriving and has great many people playing it and enjoying it so you should be happy to be a part of it. On the other hand it's not gonna make your current personal experience any better. When you are sitting in front of a queue for 4 hours just to get in and get kicked out after 10 minutes and start it all over again, I can understand that it is hard to see the bright side of it. And there is no problem with it in my opinion. We live to learn and it is true for a game as well, especially for an MMO that has a life cycle similar to a living creature in a way. It won't make this current experience any better but it can be an important lesson for both players and devs. This is why I think a bit of tough love is not the end of the world and even though I still love the game as a whole I can confidently speak my mind when I feel like it is needed. I'm well aware that it is not SE's fault by choice nor was it their intention and they tried to get more servers and they are doing their best (for which I greatly appreciate every single person who works on it <3 ) but just by not looking at a mistake it is not gonna stop being there and that's why I think it is okay to speak about it. Summing it all up I think this issue was the one that tipped the scale in my case into the direction of stating that in was an unsuccessful launch.
4. Player Behavior
This topic I think is often overlooked but since this is a multiplayer game I think it's only fair to talk about us as well. As I sated above the vast majority of people handled this whole situation with an attitude that really fills my heart with joy and gives me hope that modern gaming doesn't have to be toxic. But just as in my previous points, in this case as well I wouldn't feel that I was thorough enough if I don't mention a few things with no ill intentions and all in good faith. I'm not 100% sure on this point so again feel free to weigh in and please point out if I'm mistaken at any point. I don't necessarily think that it is as much a player's fault as the whole situations but the whole launch experience made a lot of people behave in a way that they normally wouldn't. I'm not talking about the extremes, where people are cursing and just boiling with toxicity, I have no intentions giving those people any validation since I strongly disagree with everything that they represent. I'm talking about the average players who resort to such solutions that they normally wouldn't resort to. I'm talking about macros and all kinds of different solutions that prevent your character from a kick. Now, I won't pretend that I'm any better then them or I'm above such things, I too behaved like this on the weekend when I finally got in after 4 hours and I was like "It's sure as hell that I'm not gonna log out no matter what". I went to the grocery shop, didn't log out, went to cook dinner, didn't log out so on and so forth...Is it my normal behavior? No, I would usually just log out for these and log back when I'm done and go on with my life. But feeling like that my only option is working around the 30 min afk kick and the hours long queues is jumping every 15 min with an automatic button presser is just wrong. I 'm not trying to shift the blame on this one entirely on the game as well but I do think that it was just as much the games fault as the player's fault. Could it all be a smoother experience if everyone behaved like before and just logged out as usual and log in when they actually active in the game? We will never know, maybe yes maybe not but the best solution would have been if we never had to ask ourselves this question at all. This is why I feel this can also be attributed to the game itself and this is why I feel like player behavior itself (including mine too) is an important part of the whole evaluation process.
I really don't have much to say about this one (since I haven't really had the chance to experience it :D:D:D c'mon, I'm just trying to lighting up the mood after all this serious b***s**t). What I've seen so far let it be job changes or new content or updates of old system I really liked. I couldn't even point out anything in particular that I had a problem with but if anyone feels like that certain pieces of the grape ;) is sour I'm happy to hear about it and I accept it since the perception of a lot of the changes can vary from individual to individual. Although at the end of the day the content itself is the most important part of a new expansion I don't think that it has much to do with the experience of the launch. Sure it is better to sit in queue if you know that what's on the other side of that 6000 people is a journey that you will take with the biggest smile on your face but in the end you are still just watching a counter going reeeeeeally slowly from a big number to zero.
6. Handling of the Problems by the Dev
Again a point where I can't really say anything negative. They are not mute, they acknowledge all the issues and work on them tirelessly. They offer more than fair compensations even though it wasn't in their power to solve these problems beforehand. I truly believe without the slightest doubt that they do an amazing job and they do all that they can to solve everything as fast as possible. This really makes a difference in my opinion, this is why I feel like I can confidently say that the launch was not a success because I feel like they are listening to us and they are trying to understand what we really mean when we say something like this. Huge Thank You to every single person who contributes to this wonderful game in any way!
Was it a disaster? Absolutely, without a single doubt and with all of my heart and soul...NO!!!! I've seen my fair share of launches and I always try to remain as objective as possible and I know how a disastrous launch looks and this is not one of them. Sure it has flaws and wasn't an ideal one, hell, in the end this is what all this jabbering of mine is all about. But stating that it was a "hot mess", a "huge disappointment" or a "trainwreck" is just simply wrong.
My love for FFXIV is still unbroken, I just resubbed for 6 more month. I'm more sure than ever that this game is worth every minute, every cent and every last bit of sweat and tear that I put into it. This is why I feel like I can speak up about it and say it as I see it. This launch was not a success. Does it change my mind about this wonderful game and community? Not in the slightest. However I do feel like that saying out loud that it was an unsuccessful release is the least that I can do to keep my integrity and stay true to my values. Because all the praise that I give to this game (and rightfully so) wouldn't mean anything if I didn't mention the negatives as well.
Anyways this is just what I think about all what's going on right now. I know some of you may think otherwise and I respect everyone's opinion and I am more thank happy to hear it and even change my views according to new perspectives and information.
Thank you for bearing with me for this long and see you all on the Moon!

2021.12.08 21:07 Sebastian83100 My school won’t let me take my final tomorrow because I have a cough!
Jesus Christ I am done with this school. I had a viral infection two weeks ago and had a bad cough still from it. So like an idiot I called my student health Center and asked if I could get come in and get some stuff stronger than over the counter stuff.
The fact I mentioned I had a cough meant I’m symptomatic with COVID now. And now I can’t come into any buildings on campus even though I have two negative tests from the last week.
I get it, they don’t want a COVID outbreak, but this absolute ridiculous. I can’t work at my last shift for my campus job.

2021.12.08 21:07 strawberrylabrador Apart from Spurs, what about the COVID outbreak at Leicester? Apparently Leicester vs Spurs is highly unlikely... but should we maybe sell Leicester assets ahead of Newcastle?
As title. We'll probably have a clearer picture by the end of the week, but, it seems like Leicester vs Spurs might not be played because of Spurs' COVID outbreak, and Leicester have their own issues to deal with.
A) Seeing as 7 people at Leicester have COVID according to Brendan, could they be heading the same way?
B) Even if Leicester vs Newcastle goes ahead, is there any mileage in taking out for example Vardy, if we head into the weekend not 100% sure the Leicester game will be played (example, it's Friday and we have more cases but no news on the game) and it seems Leicester will play 1 game out of the 2 max, maybe 0?

2021.12.08 21:07 bigtimesauce Lotta discussion about Leftover Crack and Scott Sturgeon lately, did anybody else happen to read Architects of Self Destruction, or listen to the podcast?
Up until recently I was a huge fan of LoC, SFH, and CV, but all the shit coming out from Whitney Flynn has definitely cast all Stza’s projects in a new and unflattering light. I did happen to pick up a copy of Brad Logan’s new book this fall and have been listening to the accompanying podcast. I don’t think it paints a particularly positive picture of sturgeon, but they definitely don’t touch on the abuse stuff beyond him getting his ass kicked a lot and hitting (I think) Nico’s finger with a drum stick. I dunno what my point is here, mostly wondering if people had read the book and had any thoughts.

2021.12.08 21:07 Myfirstreddit124 Huawei Mate 20 temporary screen repair
I have a Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The screen no longer works. I suspect that the connection between the screen and phone may be loose. In the last few weeks, when I shook my phone, screen flickered. Now, screen doesn't work at all.
I just want to back up this phone and throw it away. I want to temporarily repair the screen only to enter my passcode and enable me to transfer files by USB.
Is there a way to verify the screen/motherboard connection? Perhaps buy a cheap screen and repair it DIY? Ideally, is there a way to connect an external monitor to the phone?

2021.12.08 21:07 Sorry-Watercress4589 I have nothing to live for
Im just tired of this existence. I even posted how to meet friends in the town I’m in and everyone says meetup.com. Which is garbage for the most part. Everything I’m interested in is full and other events is less than 10 people go. I’m to ugly for online dating and I’m tired of just having a “hobby”( the advice you get on here)every day. It never fixed the loneliness.
I’m closer to my mid 20s and everyone says it gets worse in your 30s. I’ll end it before I live in my 30s like this.
