Square Enix has banned more than 5,000 players for considering “illegal activity” in Final Fantasy 14.
The website is an update from the administrator, with the publisher reminding players that “Real Money Trading (RMT) and other illegal activities impair the balance of the game and therefore prevent the use of terms and conditions.”
Having “confirmed the existence of actors involved in these illegal activities”, Square Enix has now closed 5,037 accounts to engage in real money transactions and prohibited activities, and 814 other accounts for advertising real money transactions. Huh.
The ban occurred between February 25 and March 3, 2021.
The statement reads: “Players who search for confirmation tips all the time must exploit or publish this information” (thanks, PCGN). Instead, we are asking players to file reports using the in-game command. [System Menu] -> [Support Desk] -> [Contact Us] -> [Report Cheating].
Additionally, any RMT ad viewed can be reported in the chat history by right-clicking the character’s name and selecting the list. [Report] -> [Report RMT Activity]. The report will be automatically processed, and if the RMT declaration is scheduled to fall, the reported person’s comments will be limited.
Square promises that it will “continue to take strict disciplinary action against any account with proven involvement in RMT / illegal activity” and advises players to “abstain from any activity” on suspicion of violation of terms of service. is.
Square Enix recently announced Endwalker, the next expansion for the Final Fantasy 14 MMO. Scheduled for fall in 2021 for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Mac.
