This has got to be the most poor decision I think I have ever seen Square make. In an attempt for more needless security, countless perfectly working credit and debit cards are being rejected left and right by this sorry excuse for a security measure.
As if the Playonline interface was not already cumbersome, archaic, and clunky enough, but now they have to take their frustrating and cumbersome system to a new level of headache by rejecting countless numbers of working cards. Square is majorly pissing on it's FFXI fanbase without even the courtesy now of calling it rain. Think about it. They are making us jump through hoops to be able to GIVE them money. This shows me nothing but arrogance and stupidity.
Just when I thought the RPG giant was finally listening and connecting with it's fanbase, they make one of the most tyrannical and disconnected moves I have ever seen thus far. I for one believe that they need to reconnect with their fanbase so that they know how many loyal players and fans they are royally boning over.
Is there a place we can drop complaints for this secure-code bullcrap? If so, I believe strongly that we need to start dumping as many complaints in as possible. Possibly then would they realize the error of their ways and quickly correct the situation.
