    Accounts banned (Jan. 25)

    We would like to report the termination today of multiple accounts held by players involved in the usage of third-party tools or cheats, or engaged in RMT (Real Money Trading) activities.

    Over 6,100 accounts were permanently banned due to terms of service violations. Details of the violations are as follows:

    - Usage of tools that allow enhanced character movement.
    Approx. 2,300 cases

    - Usage of tools that circumvent game mechanics with respect to the timing of ability use, etc. in certain areas or at points where Notorious Monsters appear.
    Approx. 850 cases

    - Accounts from people that were previously confirmed to have RMT connections, or that had violated the user agreements but re-subscribed to PlayOnline.
    Approx. 1,850 cases

    - RMT-related activity
    Approx. 1,100 cases

    The termination of these accounts has led to the removal of approximately 17.2 billion gil from circulation

    We would like to remind players that as well as adversely affecting game balance, the use of third-party tools or cheats can also have consequences that are not immediately obvious, such as introducing damaging viruses, and comprising the security of private account details. Usage of third-party tools will not be tolerated within FINAL FANTASY XI, and we will continue to severely penalize any players found to be in violation of the PlayOnline Member Agreement.

    We would also like to announce that the issue where players could illegally obtain gil
    through the Quest “An Explorer's Footsteps” has been fixed as of the maintenance work that was carried out on Jan. 16th. We have also taken action against any accounts that were confirmed to have participated in illegal acts related to this issue.

    As we continue to ensure a fun and balanced environment for FINAL FANTASY XI, we hope that our players enjoy the game as it was intended and take care to avoid involvement in activities that violate the PlayOnline Member Agreement.

    Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding.

    Unless they change the location of the rolanberry mall, I'd say they're half assing it.

    Seems like it's been a ban on the hackers who are genuine players, lots of POS and fleetool users have been banned along with claimbots.

    Let's break it down.



    - Usage of tools that allow enhanced character movement.
    Approx. 2,300 cases


    About 70 per server, Flee tool most likely.

    - Usage of tools that circumvent game mechanics with respect to the timing of ability use, etc. in certain areas or at points where Notorious Monsters appear.
    Approx. 850 cases


    About 28 per server, And I bet these are all the ones who warp claimed etc.

    - Accounts from people that were previously confirmed to have RMT connections, or that had violated the user agreements but re-subscribed to PlayOnline.
    Approx. 1,850 cases


    About 60 per server, prob people who got busted RMTing and used the same credit card to register again after it getting put on the black list.

    - RMT-related activity
    Approx. 1,100 cases


    30ish per server, prob RMT mules.

    Fishbots will probably be in another banning or two, they are a fairly recent finding and the research for these bans is over a certain amount of time, probably too soon to include fish bots.

    Really I'm just as happy to see members of a certain HNMLS on my server get banned as RMT. RMT hardly effect my gameplay but if that LS died we'd get a few more HNM claims.

    Fishbots in Pandy are down from 60 earlier today to 25 now, whether or not they were banned I have no idea. It seems too soon since they became mainstream knowledge, perhaps they just logged off (lol).

    this ban seems pretty weak imo, 13 fish botters in batallia.

    Fishbots seemed to be targeted in last month's bannings on Asura at least. Pretty much overnight stacks of Black Sole went from 10kish/stack to 60k/stack, with other fish increasing in price by smaller, yet still noticeable amounts.

    EU friend of mine got perm banned...

    il quote a line from the Java GM Based Chat

    SEL Euro CS Manager Andy: You IP was sending illegal packets which determines you were using a cheat tool. Normally 3rd Party programmes.

    Sky RMT on Bahamut have been absent the last two times my LS has been there. A week ago we got an uncontested Ulli after killing one round of statues. They showed up when we were leaving, after everything had been killed.

    Monday they were doing Limbus, and again showed up in sky right when we finished and everything was dead.
