    I was just about to go reactivate my account, but I guess there's no reason to now. Those poor people in Japan. My sisters ex BF lives right in one of the worst areas that got hit with the Tsunami (she lived over there for years), she can't contact him at all or anything, so she's really worried. Personally I'm just happy my sis isn't living over there anymore because the town she lived in got wiped out completely.

    Those poor ppl Sad I am so thankful right now, and my heart goes out to Japan and it's people, so tragic. Hope ur sis hears from her bf soon Hak, thank God she is here. It is my guess that it will be longer then a week for game, but we shall see. A small sacrafice, just wish I could do more for them.

    some more info


    Version Update Delay

    Rolling blackouts and restrictions on public transportation have been implemented across eastern Japan as part of the earthquake and tsunami disaster relief effort. Consequently, we have chosen to delay the upcoming major version update initially planned for mid-April.

    While the new release date has been provisionally revised to May, we are unable to provide a detailed schedule at this point in time. The previously announced world merger will likewise be postponed.

    We would like to express our apologies to our players, and will do our utmost to keep you abreast of the latest developments. Thank you for your continued understanding in this difficult time.

    ----
    Sincerely,

    The FINAL FANTASY XI Team

    Well at least it is only an extra 2 days added to the original 7 days shutdown; hopefully they won't have to extend it again.

    Thanks for the info Zan. There has been progress from what i have read lately, in terms of trying to cool down the reactors and restore power. Hopefully SE will be the lucky ones to get enough stable power to get back into full operations

    Ugh. I hate that Im soo impatient to play again. I am sympathetic to the troubles that they are having, yet.. I wanna play Sad The good news is that if I am playing it means that progress has been made and things are looking up in Japan.

    THE DATE FOR SERVERS BEING TURNED BACK ON HAS BEEN SET.

    03/25/2011 04:00 (PDT), 07:00 (EST)

    We shall see if they really do it on that date or if they decide to suspend it again. But for right now we can hope that the servers r back up on that date.
