Anyone know exactly how registering the game will work?
Ok, as many of you are aware, most southeast Asian countries are not available for you to register your SE account under. I live in Thailand, and I can’t register my account under Thailand, because it’s not available.
For the beta, I simply registered a secondary SE account under Australia just for playing in the beta.
What I’m afraid of is that when the game goes retail, and Thailand is still not available to register my SE account under, I will not be able to play the game. If Thailand is not an option, I will have to register my account under another country. And if I do that, I might not be able to pay the monthly fee if my credit card address and my SE account country don’t match.
Get what I mean?
As far as I know, SE still hasn’t clarified how this will work.
I sent an e-mail to SE a while ago, and today I got a very vague reply. I shouldn’t have expected any more from this company.

Thank you for your message from the 01st of September.
In order to play Final Fantasy FFXIV, the region of your account registered must match with the region of the purchased game. We can not provide any information about the beta test.

So from that e-mail, it SOUNDS like I will be able to pay using my credit card that has a Thailand address. The ONLY thing that matters is that my version of the game and my SE account region must match.
But I can’t be sure about this, and so I STILL haven’t pre-ordered the game because I don’t want to end up buying something I can’t use.
Can anyone shed some light?
