    The Truth Will Set You Free

    The recent bans over salvage duping have brought up a lot of questions about just what someone can be banned for in FFXI, and what the statute of liitations on such infractions might be. Here at BG, we always strive to bring you information you can't get anywhere else. Using our secret contacts deep within the dank underbelly of Square-Enix, we have attained information about who else was recently banned so that players can finally see that this banning wasn't just about salvage. The truth must be known!



    The player Macguyver was banned for using a little known exploit to make an Armada Hauberk from a crab shell, rabbit tail, and animal glue.



    The player Mozis was banned for exploiting game terrain to his advantage.



    The player Hayseus was banned for repeatedly duping Black Soles and Loaves of Black Bread.



    The player Babushka was banned for using an inventory exploit that allowed him to stack unstackable items.



    The player Blockbama was banned for handing out duped Hope Staves.



    The player Sissyfuss was banned for POS hacking a large rock to the top of Uleguerand range.



    The player Gannydoff was banned for using an exploit that allowed him to reraise long after the one hour time limit and without the proper weakened period.



    The player Minidragon was banned just because. I mean, why not?



    And finally, from our secret source, a preview of things to come!:



    "We're looking seriously into the reports of people finding a way to kill Absolute Virtue. Once we've confirmed that the players are once again managing to beat him, we will ban all those who succeeded or even attempted. It's what the players have been asking us for."







    Stuff we did this month (a special shoutout to Septimus and Sobius, who were the only dudes bad enough to take pictures this month).

    I personally think this one was lacking.
    I believe you could have done much better.

    One of the few updates where I laughed at everything. Usually its just the pre-picture update but with this one it was funny seeing all the picture captions. Warthog's was the best.

    The last part of the update was win too.
