In a rather explosive finale, the original release of Final Fantasy XIV has officially come to a close. The weekend event drew enough players to overwhelm servers, leaving several – such as yours truly – unable to log in and witness the final battle firsthand. Fortunately, Square Enix arranged the final minutes of the Seventh Umbral Era in a CG trailer, available for all over on YouTube.
This marks the shutdown of the original servers, to be replaced next year with the Realm Reborn content. I’ll just be waiting over here, not at all impatient or anything.
