The servers might be brought back up for people who feel like doing stuff that isn't saved for 2.0. Other than that, we wait for 2.0 to arrive. They said today that they expect beta to start in late January or February. They'll have an updated roadmap in 4-6 weeks.

Confirmed this morning during a dev demo on niconico that all "Legacy" players will get invites to beta session 1. Session 1 is scheduled for mid-February.

I don't suppose I count for Legacy? I bought it and got to lv30 in three days just to get that mount.... Longest weekend ever.

I believe if you're Legacy you should have gotten an email from them telling you so. It should be the same eligibility deal as the mount, so I think you'll count as Legacy.

Legacy status is obtained by having paid for 90 days or more. From The Lodestone page:
Quote:
Users with service accounts that have paid for at least 90 cumulative days of subscriptions between January 6, 2012 and the start of version 2.0 beta testing are eligible.


Since they stopped taking payments in September, the end-point was a bit earlier than stated. In case you might have missed a notification, you can check your SE account under Services and Options. If you have Legacy status, you get a little Legacy icon showing, like here:

Looks neat, the spell effects are a bit over the top though, and the combat text, when they're fighting I can't even see what the heck is going on because the entire screen just lights up from effects.
