“Trade with real money [RMT en sus siglas en inglés] and other illegal activities affect the balance of the game and, therefore, are prohibited in the terms of service ”. The Japanese explain that as they have confirmed “the existence of players” who practice “these illegal activities”, they have taken action against them. Square Enix notifies that from February 25 to March 3 the following number of accounts has been banned.

Report options for players

Square Enix warns surfers and urges players who discover such cheats to “under no circumstances” engage in exploiting or disseminating this information. Instead, it prompts users to report back to the company via the ingame command to report cheating (from the menu, Support Desk, Contact Us, and Report Cheating). RMT announcements can also be reported by right-clicking on the character’s name. Select Report and then Report RMT Activity.

“We will continue to take strict disciplinary action against any account where we have confirmed RMT / illegal activity; Players should be careful and stay away from any activity that violates the terms of service.
