Since Endwalker‘s launch earlier in December, Final Fantasy XIV servers flooded by new and returning players requesting to join the game and experience new content. The number of requests was too high that Square Enix increased the maximum allowed simultaneous requests for logging into the game to 21,000 in a recent update.
Now, after almost two weeks, the game is about to receive its first update after the arrival of Endwalker, and it is expected to fix many issues that players have already faced in the new expansion.
However, before you can download the update, you should wait for the maintenance to finish.
