Hey all,

Just a friendly reminder, if you're intending on resubscribing to Final Fantasy XI for the bonuses received for having an active subscription when creating a character in XIV, it'd be a good idea to do it soon.

As someone who spent years in XI, I know too well the pains of dealing with SE's PlayOnline payment system when the server is bogged by a large amount of people all trying to do the same thing. I wouldn't be surprised to see many people trying to do it next week getting all sort of error messages. Also, given that the standard edition releases just before their monthly maintenance, it may be a circus trying to do it then.

Eh, not really worth the hassle for me.

Besides I might want to actually renew my FFXI sub and I'll forget about FFXIV altogether.

huh huh huh yeah right!

I'm still curious about whether I'll be charged for more than a month if I resubscribe now, then cancel before the beginning of next month after I've activated the shoes in FFXIV. I'm OK throwing away a month's payment for them, not sure if I want to pay for 2 months of FFXI since I won't be playing it anymore at all.

Generally as long as you cancel before the payment server goes down on or near the 1st, you will only be charged the one month. O

I read this thread, then remembered I still had a 4 year old pad of paper in an old binder that just happened to have my old PlayOnline information written on it.

I don't know how you did it Sephrick, but you jogged my memory which is usually limited to 10 minutes and got me some ugly shoes with a nice bonus. Thank you!

Well I went ahead and did it. Here's hoping I can cancel it successfully before next month's billing cycle after I get what I want. It did mention that I'll be billed for this month together with next month, but that shouldn't happen if there is NO next month to bill.
It only took me 5 tries to remember my POL password (I will NOT miss that process...I would always confuse my POL and FFXI names and passwords, even after writing them down on Post-It notes I'd manage to bork it up time after time).

Smiley: lol
