Earlier today, the Final Fantasy XIV Twitter account shared new official artwork in celebration of the game’s Data Center Travel feature!
Data Center Travel became available in game with the release of Patch 6.18. There were some hiccups, however, when the system was shut down hours after its release due to extreme congestion. According to Square Enix’s official notice, the system received over 15,000 requests per minute when it first went live!
After creating some countermeasures to combat the extreme server load, the dev team reopened Data Center Travel and has continued to monitor the system for any issues. It seems like things are running much more smoothly now, as adventurers are visiting their Eorzean friends all over the world!
