A lot of people have at least postulated that the banhammers for NeoNyzul would come either tomorrow or not at all.
The problem with that is that, like Salvage v.1, it took about two months to complete the investigation.
I will say this, though: I would put a quite high probability on a F100 Nyzul item being equated with at least a temp-ban and removal of the item. Again, I believe the ENTIRE INTENT of NeoNyzul was to draw this behavior out.
Working As Intended.
And one more thing: Shooting themselves in the knee?
The only reason Final Fantasy XI still exists is because Final Fantasy XIV was such a joke at release that it will be two-plus years after release and the game still might not be in fully playable form!
The Salvage bans were the last straw, and, within a month, Square-Enix was openly proposing moving on from Final Fantasy XI.
