RMT and other illicit activities upset the balance of the game and, as such, are prohibited under the Terms of Service.
Because we have confirmed the existence of players who are engaging in these illicit activities, we have taken the actions listed below.
– Date: Sep. 12 – Sep. 30, 2013
– Accounts receiving disciplinary action for RMT site advertisements: 6,154 accounts
– Accounts receiving disciplinary action for illicit activity: 156 accounts
– Action Details: Termination from FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn
– Date: Sep. 28, 2013
– Accounts receiving disciplinary action for RMT/illicit activities: 568 accounts
– Action Details: Termination/Temporary suspension from FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn
* Accounts of egregious violators will be terminated.
– Total Frozen Gil: Approximately 367,700 million Gil
* Gil of temporarily suspended accounts will be confiscated.
Included in the above are players who used/obtained gil, items, or actions through fraudulent means. Although we are taking the utmost care and attention to prevent such actions, players who discover any confirmed cheats should, under no circumstances, exploit or disseminate such information. Instead, we ask that players file a report by using the in-game command [System Menu] -> [Support Desk] -> [Contact Us] -> [Report Cheating].
In addition, the recent maintenance operations have implemented countermeasures to nullify the effects of the aforementioned cheats.
We will continue to take stringent disciplinary action against any accounts with confirmed involvement in RMT/illicit activity; players should take care to steer clear of any activity that violates the Terms of Service. Please be forewarned.
* “Cheating” consists of using third party programs or tools to conduct actions players would not normally be able to do in the game (for example, obtaining gil or items through illicit means, traversing at extremely high speeds, warping, using automated means to operate your character while you are away from the game).
