i sent an email to techsupport over the playonline email server, and after a week and a half or so, i got a response. I asked if we could keep our character data from the beta when the full game is released.
his reply was:
"unfortunately not, the characters created in the beta version will not be transferred when it goes live. For more information see http://www.playonline.com/ff11us/informati...0202.html"
i looked at the link and it said
"As the date for official service looms nearer, the development team is looking into the possibility of transferring character data to the public servers for all players currently enjoying the Xbox 360 Beta. As the beta testing continues, however, technical issues may arise that could prevent such a transfer. We will be sure to bring you updates on this matter as soon as they are available."
So it seems more like It wont happen, but a slight chance your data may be saved.
I know something has been mentioned about beining unsure if data would transfer... but Havent seen anyone confirming that it wont... so thought id share my findings
soi probably wouldnt play 10 days in a game that will/may delete your character!
