Last week i decided to reactivate my account with play online/final fantasy XI. I reinstalled everything and tried it out. When I tried to log in it read: ERROR: invalid playonline id or password. After a few days i decided to go ahead and create a new account. After completing the whole registration, I filled in the CD key. There was another error: invalid registration key :eyemove: . So, I decided to call up the survice hotline. I told the "specialist" my problems and he said " It is a policy here at play online that we must have an oderly payment proccess. You have not paid in 90 days so there fore your registration is canceled." I replied " so how do i get play online running again?" he said "Sir, we have deleted your playonine ID from the records. The only way to get a new valid play online ID is to buy a new copy of the game" oO . That has got to be the stupidest thing i have ever heard. I don't think that it says anything about that on the manual. The question "why final fantasy?" refers to why did such a great company like square enix have a game hosted on a server that makes you buy a new copy of the game you already have and who are having problems as it is with the new expansion they have out. Well what should i do?
