Data Center Travel, which has been under development for almost a year, has been released in Final Fantasy 14. Final Fantasy 14 needed to halt the service entirely to repair it since it was so popular.
Final Fantasy 14’s “Data Centers” are simply groups of servers, referred to as “Worlds,” that have been grouped together according to geography. Players could only access other Worlds via their Data Center before the most recent Patch 6.18. Final Fantasy 14 users will be able to travel to certain other Data Centers in a local continental zone using the new scheme.
Although Final Fantasy 14 overestimated the enthusiasm of its followers for this new feature, For seeing Final Fantasy 14 pals on other servers or discovering the world outside their own Data Center, Warriors of Light descended to the game in droves. Final Fantasy 14 claims that it got over 15,000 queries per minute, causing the servers to be fully overloaded. FF14 had to shut down the whole system in order to investigate and fix the problem.
Note that while Legenday and Unspoiled Nodes are inaccessible when World or Data Center Traveling, Fishing is NOT.

Players who were traveling to other Data Centers to play Final Fantasy 14 are now unable to access their homes’ networks. Final Fantasy 14’s social aspects, such as Free Companies, retainers, and Linkshells, will be unavailable to players when in other Data Centers, despite their continued participation in other game activities. These limits are bearable for a short period of time, but if these individuals are stuck for an extended period of time, they will suffer greatly.
Several Final Fantasy 14 gamers have been affected by this terrible turn of events. Because Square Enix is cognizant of the system’s closing difficulties and is striving to fix them promptly, it’s good news. The Data Center Travel service is expected to resume in the next several days, if everything goes well. It is also hoped that the Data Center Travel platform’s difficulties will go away as the buzz around it does as well.
