You know what they say - time to go out and buy that game! Also time to go out and buy a new harddrive and graphics card, because no way you're going to play it without 6gb of space and 128MB of pure polygon-pumping visual power!1
The official sale date for a purchase to be made on FFXI is the 29th. Any store who sells it before can get fined. Some people went to their gamestop and they had the shipment in, but they couldn?t sell it until tom.
You can't choose your server. It's completely random. That's why, even though I want to play FFXI, I won't, because MMORPGs are made for playing with your damned friends and you can't unless you buy some world pass thing. Utter bullshit, Squenix.
