Square Enix Bans 6k Final Fantasy XIV Accounts

Final Fantasy XIV

Square Enix has announced that nearly six thousand Final Fantasy XIV accounts have been banned due to “participation in RMT/prohibited activities” and “RMT advertising”. The accounts were found to be in violation of the Terms of Service that prohibits real-money transactions that “upset the balance of the game”. Between February 25th and March 3rd, 5,037 accounts were terminated for participating in real-money transactions and other prohibited activities. During the same time frame, 814 accounts were terminated for advertising real-money transactions.

MMO players who see others participating in or advertising RMT are urged to submit a report about the offending player accounts. According to the article on the FFXIV official site, reports are as easy as right-clicking the player’s name and “report RMT/cheating activity”.

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.

Check out the full report on the Final Fantasy XIV official site.
