    I won't survive another suspension

    I'm not sure, but if I remember right it's possible to play via Steam for free till 35 lvl. Also, no idea about current state, but before "Trial" functionality was like in WoW. So, it was possible to pay just for main account on start and invite trial accounts in order to decide how game fit you.

    The trial accounts currently go up to 60, and yes, you can't form a party with a trial account, so you need at least 1 copy of the game. The downside is you can't have trial service accounts. Service accounts allow them to all be under the same Square-Enix account. Some people have elected to use a 3rd party launcher with 4 different S-E accounts and an emulated authenticator. I'm too lazy and prefer to just use the S-E phone app so I bought 4 copies of the base game for $20 each.

    The game is currently 50% off so the base game is $10, the latest expansion is $20 or the whole package is $30. Very reasonable. They're also giving out an extra 15 days of gametime once you hit level 30 but I don't remember if that requires an authenticator or not.

    Blizzard said multiboxing was allowed in the past.. I even called them up to put a note on my account that I do many years ago.

    Square do not feel the same way. I don't think it's good to promote boxing a game that will just end up with people being banned and losing out again.

    I think anyone multiboxing in any game must live with there being no tacit approval of a particular play style, nor any guarantee that the game's operator won't take individual or broad policy action against multiboxing (or particular facets thereof) in the future. The best we can do is be courteous in game and play in a way that we keep to ourselves and don't have an outsized impact on solo players. This is especially evident after what happened with Blizzard and WoW.

    What I like about XIV is that it lacks the perverse incentives that motivated an explosion in the prevalence of multiboxing in WoW. I think the reply you received from support is all we can expect from that tier of the company, and my hope is that multiboxing in XIV remains unassuming enough that SE is not forced to adopt an explicit policy stance.

    As ever, play at your own risk!

    I multiboxed FFXIV for several months after it came out without issue. As far as I can see there's nothing in the terms of service and there are multiple threads on the Square Enix forum talking about multiboxing. It's a bit annoying when companies don't openly state what the rules are. My guess would be it's fine unless/if you start engaging in behaviors that impact other players.

    Since there's no real PvP in this game I doubt people will cry about it as much as they did in WoW.

    The game itself is pretty well made. Slower than WoW but there's a good amount of content. I just can't maintain interest in playing something knowing there's no PvP end-game.

    The email they sent me in no way says boxing is allowed. You got lucky.

    A couple of WoW GM's have said the same thing over the years. Sometimes you just get a cowboy GM who gives his opinion and gets corrected later by a higher up.

    I'd ask for that ticket to be escalated to a senior GM (or whatever Square Enix calls them) who actually refers to the terms of service.

    Rift replied to me saying:

    Multiboxing is allowed, as long as you don't violate against the Terms of Use

    So what do you make of it?
