Do they still delete character and/or account if you stop playing/paying the game for 1~3 months?
I stopped playing back in the days of PS2 then came back months/year later and my **** was gone, and I was thinking of joining this one on/off while I wait/play WoW: Cataclysm.

Hope you guys can help me with this question, thanks <3 /hugs

I don't think they promise it but I've quit for a over a year and later returned in FFXI. Having triplets will do that to you.

I was gone for well over 2 years after I deleted a character and then put another character onto its old content ID (I didnt know this was bad til two months later) in FFXI... tried and tried to get the character undeleted but it was always a no-go...

Then around March or April of this year I decided to try it ONE MORE TIME because I was getting antsy over FFXIV... and behold!!! SE was able to retrieve my deleted character.

So... seems like theres a chance of recovering your thing but is it like 100% sure im gonna get my stuff deleted or... they dont do it unless its a last resort.

Im just trying to confirm what a friend told me, he said they stopped doing that a long time ago.

Originally they wouldn't let you get your character back (for whatever reason, the data was never really gone). These days, you can get even deleted chars back (if you've deleted then you go to http://www.playonline.com/ff11us/crs/, otherwise you can reactivate your Content ID(s) in POL). It might take a short time for your data to be available, and if you were on a server that was merged then you'll end up on the merged server, but yes it should be 100% that you can get all your FFXI chars back (whether deleted or just cancelled). ^^
