RMT Countermeasures

Recently, a number of accounts which were confirmed to have violated the the user agreement by using unauthorized third-party software tools were discovered and have been permanently suspended.

Since the middle of May, 2006, the development team and the GMs carried out a detailed investigation of this problem, and discovered the existence of a group using illicit methods to produce large amounts of gil that are later sold in the real world (Real Money Trading). We would like to take this opportunity to outline the measures that have been taken to correct this issue.

Based on the results of this investigation, more than 250 accounts among those found to be involved in large-scale RMT operations have been terminated. We will continue to monitor accounts suspected of dealing in gil created or obtained in an unfair manner. Thanks to these measures, more than 250 billion gil has been removed from circulation.

As has been previously stated, acts of RMT will not be tolerated in FINAL FANTASY XI, and any violations of the user agreement will be dealt with severely. We would like to assure our players that all efforts are being made to ensure a fair playing experience.

We hope to have your continuing understanding and cooperation in creating a Vana'diel that everyone can enjoy.


Too bad that all the CGFs that camp sky and other NMs 24/7 are still there.

I sure hope they haven't messed with Beastman blood drop rates. I've encountered a few gilsellers whilst farming. :(

Beastman blood stack prices have just gone messed up on my server in Jeuno AH. Stack only sells for 115K now thanks to people who can't wait to get their cash :( This item should be selling for 150K in stack.

Didnt want to make a new thread so I just double post ;)

Today we went to camp ulli to get a new byakko for this weekend... Kill placeholders for 2 hours then ulli spawns claimed and starts to hit a afk cgf. They manage to kill it after 30 min or something.

Then we go camp behemoth and I'm standing next to some mnk named Dadgfuhasfuhfsa... he uses chi blast before I even see Behemoth and gets claim... he gets killed along with a few more ppl in his alliance since he's afk.

Heaven got a mule checking the cgf bazaar selling god triggers and a leader of a NA ls just bought a trigger for 10 mil (same trigger cgf stole from us with the bot).

CGF are starting to take over everything in this game -_-

We were lucky with Ulli the other day. The BLM was botting with Stun and was trying to annoy us by running inbetween us, then Ulli spawns and he stuns it, runs off and dies. Luckily we just got the claim before the other Gilsellers. But yea, its gonna get suckier on Valefor I can feel it.
