"You have absolutely no 'legal' right to play"
You should keep your mouth shut when you don't have any clue about what you are talking about. When I payed my money for this game, I have a legal right to expect to be able to log in, and play the game, just like they advertise that I can. You can sit their with your b im bo opinion up your nose all day, and my legal right will never change.

5. INTERRUPTION TO THE SERVICE
From time to time, in order to provide our customers with the optimal gaming experience, it is necessary for Square Enix to conduct routine maintenance on the computers and/or servers that support the Game. During these times,access to the Game or support services may be interrupted. Access may also be temporarily suspended in whole or in part, without notice, due to emergency repairs, fire, flood, explosion, war, strike, embargo, governmental action or failure to act, the act of any civil or military authority, act of God, or by any other causes beyond Square Enix’s control, or any other reasons for which Square Enix, in its sole discretion, deems that temporary suspension is necessary. You acknowledge that disruptions of service may occur and waive any causes of action against Square Enix in any way arising from or related to any such disruptions of service.
I can keep going if you'd like. You've lost this argument. You have no legal right to play this game at all. SE can terminate your ability to play it and you have no recourse at all whatsoever. You will not get a refund. You will not be able to sue them. You will do nothing because you can't do anything. And there isn't a thing you can do about it.
So take your big boy attitude and do something else to someone else about it, or come to me personally and shut my mouth. Barring the fact that you can't and won't for reasons outside of your control, I suggest you grow up, do something else, or otherwise calm down on a public forum that is not yours and that you have absolutely no right to, no more than I do, before you cross a line and get yourself muted.
