I have been wanting to play this game for awhile now, and since SE has been fixing alot of the bugs and has made the game much more playable now, I have been trying to get a job so that I could pay the subscription fee to play it. After applying all over the place and not getting any responses from job places I brought up how much it sucked to one of my friends that I could not get income to help pay for this game, but they informed me that the game is still free to play because they have not resolved every bug yet. Is this still true? Can i sign up for FFXIV without a subscription fee today?

I'm pretty positive It's still free. I'm definitely not paying anything yet, so I don't see why people wouldn't be able to sign up free also.

It is free to play in the sense that the monthly subscription fee isn't being charged to our accounts. However in order to create an account you will either have to pay for a copy of the game in order to get a registration code or be lucky enough to find an active buddy code (extreemly unlikely) in order to register a account.

You will still have to setup a valid payment method, however there is no billing.

Awesome! Well, it is only $20 on Amazon.com so if I won't get charged to play it that seems perfect for right now.

my options in my SE account says "Free trial period End Date: Aug. 17, 2011" - has this been announced anywhere or is it just a placeholder date?

Gamestop says they carry it for $15, but the one by me is no longer selling it, I have not seen a copy of it there for like 3 or 4 months now.
