FFXI economy is completly messed up. Japanese players had years to exploit a LOT of stuff before english speaking players even knew said exploits existed. Square Enix did/continues to do NOTHING to try and equal the playing field for its english speaking playerbase.

Rusty caps anyone? Jp players made millions and millions of gil off this exploit for YEARS before it was removed (Engish speaking players had a few months of enjoyment at most).

Everything is overpriced, thanks to the JP "elite" exploiters... i mean expert players. Square Enix needs to just introduce a new type of money (that can't be bought with the old currency) and essentially do an economy wipe...because they have FAILED hard.

Too little. Too late.

I completely disagree with you. Yes, 4 year ago, Japanese had an advantage because they had a year more play time. Since North American and European players hit max level, it's been fair. With the ups and downs of the economy (2 years ago, everything cost 10x as much), a few million here or there hardly makes a difference.

The fact that Square-Enix halted, and then reversed RMT-created inflation is a testament to how hard they're working. Of course, there are always areas they could be doing better in, but hunting down RMT isn't one of them.

PLEASE!! SE does very little about RMT. As a matter of fact how can SE justify that a hacker who hacked my friends account was actually SE? Me and my friends changed servers a month ago. Last week my friends account was hacked and changed servers.... that isn't possible. There is a 90 day wait to change servers. The change would have had to have been made in house. I tested the server change and I couldn't change. SE is a bunch of scum bags! DO NOT LET THEM FOOL YOU!

Also SE banning accounts is a big ass joke too. Yeah they can ban account but they can easily create new ones for RMTs. SE lets the economy of the game stay crappy to force people to buy gil or quit. They make more profit that way. If you buy gil then they make out, if you quit they sell your account. If you really think SE gives a crap about you or anyone non JP you're a fool. When are all updates on the game? Not on JP time. Who gets hacked? I've never heard of a JP getting hacked. Have you ever tried calling them? They are the rudest customer service center on the planet. hour long hold times with no resolution. An expensive call as well if you're not located in wherever they are. I quit the game and you should too. Someone needs to take them down legally because their system was created for corruption and all they do is take your fees monthly only to waste months of your time farming 5k drops for something like an HQ stave, then scam you out of your account and then lie about RMT... It's a very disappointing thought. I've been a FF fan since the 80s and now i feel let down
