The registration process is so convoluted and error prone that it's mind boggling.
I've never seen anything like this before - it's almost like they intentionally made it as messed up as possible.
I'm guessing you FF fans are really hardcore; SE must think they can ***** their customers over without consequences.
If this was a NA/US based MMO it would be out of business.
For me, I have my payment dispute already logged. Let's see who responds first: The bank or SE..
This is not complex mathematics. The small hieroglyphs beneath both codes of the hard copy have been discovered to be written in the lost language of English. Run the playstation code through your playstation and the SE code through SE.
Now you may need to make an SE account. This might require the arduous task of registering an email but I promise even this vile act of personal privacy should only take 5-10 minutes tops.
Your smug asshatness aside, you have no idea what I'm talking about.
Like many other people I never recived a simple email with a code.
Obtaining that email has been torturous in itself.
Then, after finally getting it and following the SE process to the letter I end up with a "registered" "maintenance account" (blank) and a locked "maintenance account" (where my characters are).
Are no point or anywhere in my account profile was there anything mentioned about "maintenance accounts" or which one you want the code applied to.
I only discovered this AFTER completing the registration process as instructed and trying to log on, where i was instructed to got to yet ANOTHER SE site (something with "mog" in it) that has these mystical maintenance accounts listed.
This has to be the most cobbled together/jerry-rigged system I've ever seen in 25+ years of IT experience.
You FF fanbois must be incredibly hardcore; there's no lore/IP that I would put up with this kind of crap for.
it's one and done for me with SE.
