One of the most questions being consulted from a first-time FFXIV GIL buyer is that will my account get banned after buying gil. Also we can see a lot of discussion about this in many places, in which we can not see an explicit conclusion. I have answered this in my article Do FFXIV Gil Buyers Get Banned. This time, I answer the question with multi-angle.
FFXIV GIL buyers did not get banned
First, FFXIV GIL buyers did not get banned according to the fact. We have been selling FF14 GIL since 1.0. Honestly, none of our gil buyers got banned because of buying from us and never heard that our any other game currency buyers got banned too.
SE is unwilling to ban FFXIV GIL buyers
Second, SE is unwilling to ban FFXIV GIL buyers, not only SE, other game companies like Blizzard too. A game is a social in which there are any different kinds of people, some rich and some poor, some having jobs and some not, some hating to farm game currency by boring grinding but some happy to farm it themselves. For the rich people, we can not see any reason that they should farm game currency by themselves, the money to buy game currency is a penny for them. Some people who have jobs should not spend a lot of time on farming too, for it is a waste for them. It is unreasonable to force different kinds of people to farm all game currency needed in game themselves. Obviously the Term of Service of game companies about RMT is against the nature of the games. However, in order to protect their benefit they have to make the rules ignoring its social feature on purpose. They can not say sellers illicit but buyers legitimate with different rules for two sides. So SE does have ban wave to rampant famers by bots and cheat, but takes a blind eye to FF14 GIL buyers.
Select reasonable secure transaction methods to receive FFXIV Gil
So if we should say FFXIV GIL buyers do not get banned any time, you can buy FFXIV GIL in any way? No, after all, the action is violating the Term of Service of SE. Therefore, when you buy Final Fantasy Gil, you should select reasonable secure transaction methods to receive gil. You should keep clear of suspicious actions, to make the transaction be normal player-to-player. Sellers should have trade characters with normal name and normal level, instead, have a rubbishy name like aefsdfsad at level 1, that is obviously farmers' account. In addition, you do not say any word about your buying gil with trader in game, just do normal communication like player-to-player.
If FFXIV: ARR does not have RMT, it is a tragedy for the game.
If a game does not have RMT, it is a tragedy for the game. Based on the data statistics about amount of transactions on the unique oversea game-currency-transaction site in Twitter: https://twitter.com/CheapGold
