Lol. Thanks guys for defending me, but it was really my own bonehead move. I believe Gnu is right though...
The account I thought I had been paying on was the account that I had open since the initial FFXIV 1.0 Beta test. It has my old FFXI info on it too. But, at the time my system couldn't really handle FFXIV so after about 2 months in (not certain about this, but it wasn't 90 days) I reluctantly deactivated my account in hopes of getting a better system. (I'm not even sure what happened to those characters now that I think about it... the SE rep told me there was no FFXIV 1.0 data on my old account... does it deactivate over time?)
Anyway, so then after a long time and many MMO's later I remember FFXIV 1.0 and get back on just in time before SE announces the overhaul and beta test. Apparently though, this is where things get confusing. When I jumped back on, I created a new account and started a new character (the new character is obvious). Then when the beta test rolled around, I signed up for the beta test with my old account and not the new one. Hence why I couldn't find my current character.
How I managed this? I have no idea. Anyway, between the two accounts I qualified for Legacy, but no single account qualifies.
See what happened? I'm a bonehead.
But at least I can still enjoy the game with my current 1.0 character. :)
