All-Worlds Emergency Maintenance. Two-hour full-game shutdown.
That's unusual, especially for Japanese prime-time.
But, now that we're back up, here's the reason:
"An issue where gil could be obtained using an improper method has been resolved."
Essentially, RMT created this All-Worlds Maintenance.
And, here's the kicker: This isn't the first RMT-led Update this week!! This is, in fact, the second such update (the June 1 one had other things too, but another issue of improper gil was addressed) in five days.
And I would bet any amount of money that, within about 20 minutes of the restart, I have just witnessed three characters whom I believe will be involved in RMT (3 level 1 warriors in the Bastok Mines, who will go nameless until they do involve themselves in RMT, which I expect won't be long).
Face it: There is ONE solution -- ONE SOLUTION -- and I've said it and others have too.
Get the trial accounts off the main servers and on their own damn server. They get an automatic push to the main server once they start paying.
