Over 6,000 Final Fantasy XIV Accounts Banned

Posted on October 1, 2013 AT 06:55am

If you’ve played Final Fantasy XIV for any amount of time then you’ve no doubt noticed the insane amount of Gil selling spam littering general chat. Well Square Enix hasn’t ignored this and has today banned over 6,000 of these Gil selling accounts.

The publisher announced that 6,154 accounts have been banned for RMT (Real-money Trade) and another 156 accounts for “illicit activity.” Hopefully these terminations will alleviate the spam in chat.
