Need (sort of) urgent help regarding Buddy Pass and paymentFollow

I was planning to head out and buy a copy of the game today, but I'm not so sure if I have to/should do it anymore. I'm currently playing the game using a Buddy Pass. Now I know that I can continue using my current character after the 30 day trial simply by paying a monthly fee. However, what I'm not sure and what I want to know is:

1. Whether I still have to pay the $50 (that I'd usually have to pay for the discs) on top of the monthly fee
2. Whether I could continue using my current character if I buy the retail box and use the new registration code

Anyone got any idea? Thanks.

1. No
2. No

As long as you're able to set up a payment method, you're fine with your Buddy Pass character's account. Smiley: cool

Glad to hear you got it worked out btw!

Thanks. It seems I can pay using the crysta method. :D

And on top of that I don't have to spend $50 to buy the game. $50 saved is $50 richer. kekeke

Actually, Osarion, are you 100% positive about this? Many people are having doubts about it. There are conversations about it on other forums as well.

Someone posted an e-mail reply from SE regarding a buddy pass question. They pretty clearly said that you just need to sign up with a buddy pass, and then continue to pay after the 30 days are over and you'll be good.

i would imagine that would actually be SE's best interest because charging another $50 might just drive away some of the customers, they are better off just simply charging the monthly fee, the $50 can be offset very easily if those potential "quitting because the extra fee" players stick around for another couple of month, afterall it is the subscriptions making them the most income rather than the $50 start up

Alright, I just received a reply from SE confirming this:


Quote:
The Buddy Pass that is provided in the FINAL FANTASY XIV Collector's Edition acts like a full game of FINAL FANTASY XIV! Once the 30 day free trail expires, the player using the Buddy Pass would be able to continue on the Buddy Pass account as long as they pay for access onto FINAL FANTASY XIV. For more information, please refer to the Official FINAL FANTASY XIV website at www.finalfantasyxiv.com.



Cheers!

It's amazing how they got back to you really fast. I usually wait over 3 days+ to get my email from SE!

It's not just you. The first time I emailed them about something else they took 20 days to reply. The second time they took 5 days. This time they replied within hours when I asked them something regarding payment/money now rather than payment later.

How typical.
