Deactivated FF14 accountFollow

Hey there, haven't been since December I believe, but my issue is as following.

I got a buddy pass off a kind person from these forums back in December of 2010. The game was not exactly to my liking, but I gave it a fair chance. Left it until July this year, I heard the game has really been improved and felt like diving back into it.

The game would not let me log in, it claims that I have no service account for FF14. I check my Square Enix account, and I see that my FF14 account not only does not exist but there is no means to reactivate it. What happened? I thought even buddy passes were allowed to play for free until the game was up to scratch. It's not even listed in the cancelled service account option so I have no idea what's wrong.

Kind Regards to all.

Could be you are an unfortunate victim caught in the crossfire of their new billing system. They did some stuff with some accounts but I thought it only affected FFXI ones.

Best bet would be to call SE directly. No one here will be able to research what happened to your account.

I assume buddy pass created accounts are only active for a certain period of time, and if you buy a copy of the game in that time you upgrade it to a full acount, so I'm just assuming they delete them after a certain period since it wasn't upgraded. No real point in keeping all the buddy pass created accounts in their system, just seems like a waste of space keeping thousands of useless accounts from people who just wanted to try it out but never buy it.

SE does things like this to discourage their already discouraged player base from playing.

Say that 10x fast.

Buddy passes ARE full versions though.

Yes, in all ways but one: SE randomly deactivates them, I guess. XD

There's no accounting for taste.
