      Restoration of Game Services Mar 25

      As part of power conservation measures enacted following the Tohoku earthquake, our game servers were shut down on Mar. 13, 2011 3:00 (PDT) and services for FINAL FANTASY XIV, FINAL FANTASY XI, and PlayOnline (hereafter referred to as "these services") were temporarily suspended. We have determined a date for the restoration of these services, and would like to share this information with you.

      Operating the servers for these services makes up 11.6% of the total power consumed by our Tokyo office (based on February 2011 records). We have shut down our air conditioning system (8.8%) and enacted other power conservation measures, such as reducing lighting in our offices, to achieve over 10% in energy usage reductions. With these energy saving measures in place, we will be able to bring our servers back online and restore service to FINAL FANTASY XIV, FINAL FANTASY XI, and PlayOnline on Mar. 25, 2011 4:00 (PDT). All other services, such as those offered on the PlayOnline website, that were temporarily suspended will also be restored at the same time. Please be aware, however, that we may once again be required to suspend services in the event that the power situation worsens.

      We offer our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused by the temporary suspension of these services, and thank you for your understanding. As noted in our original notice regarding the suspension of these services, customers will not be charged any monthly fees for FINAL FANTASY XI throughout the April billing cycle.

      We at the Square Enix group are trying to act in a proactive manner in order to provide support towards the relief and restoration efforts in the face of this unprecedented disaster while providing reliable service to our customers, and we thank you for your understanding and support.

      I'm sorry, but I'm just flabbergasted how, being American, you can NOT know the abbreviation for pacific daytlight time. Don't they teach this stuff in the schools anymore?

      Considering the reason you're asking is due to lack of reading comprehension and ability to use google, I'd say we are being fairly polite. But you know, look at it your way if you like.

      Fairly certain you answered your own question. Need I remind you of the myriad of 'when is the maintenance over' posts that used to flood every patch day?

      And I hope everyone else is happy, they shut down their AC so you can play a game. No way I'd shut off my AC for these players.

      That's basically what I was thinking. Shut off some lights? Sure. But you leave the AC and Coffee Machine going.

      Re: Restoration of Game Services Mar 25

      I just want to point out that it's 7C out right now.

      I mean, I know a lot of public buildings do have to run their AC even in this weather, but generally speaking it's pretty chilly out.

      The thing is though, this could be a poor translation, and actually mean their heater. So if a bunch of SE employees are really fucking cold, I hope you feel bad. When you're playing Final Fantasy 13-2 in a couple years, and the Ice Level is absolute hell, I hope you think a little bit about the people snickering and getting their revenge on you.

      /also, that time puts them right at the beginning of JP Prime.
      //hell of a way to make a comeback.

      I did find it kind of amusing and very Japanese that they were like "Well, we're going to bring the game back, but we're letting you know that Sally down in accounting isn't going to get her dialysis this week. Also, some of us had to give up any children beyond the first. But hey, enjoy Vanadiel!"

      yeah they are doing that to bring the game back up early, I thank them for that, but at the same time I am thinking "oh guys you did not have to do that, take some more time"
