It booted up just fine, logged in, got the BnS screen, got the pin number screen (which constantly changes, extremely annoying :P) and right after punching in the code and hitting ok I get a “Failed to connect to server”.
So at first I figured that was to be expected because I’m not a founder but after pondering about it a bit… the game IS technically life already so they could just “not let you create a character” or whatever.
So my question is, since I couldn’t find ANY info about this, does anyone else get this message?
If so its perfectly fine and I just have to be patient with R4PG BNS Gold, but if not… I gotta figure out what could be wrong before I miss out on the first F2Pers launch moment.
NCsoft seems to be a little vague with the error message, it could have meant a number of things, but then again, letting people actually log in right now just because they’re “trying it anyway” will increase the server load so, yeah, lol.
I definitely expect there to be a queue for logging in, I’m going for EU though and I’m actually staying up until 5AM so that might decrease it a bit (it most likely won’t but don’t pop my bubble lol) either way I’ll just keep trying and trying.
@Erratic, 2 things, how would you migrate your chars to the blade and soul gold farming? And you say characterS, as in plural, isn’t it limited to 2 chars for non founders (and yes I know that’ 2 is technically plural hehe)?
As for the timer, I didn’t know that! I have the official BnS page open, they have a timer as well 🙂 and my alarm clock is on 15 min in advance so shouldn’t miss it ;).
