    Re: Maintenance problem?

    Saved you a phonecall.

    Having the same issue as you, so I used the good ol webchat function on the support site.

    And had the following conversation:
    SEL Agent Eleanor: Hello how may I help you?
    Bob Smith: Hi I was just wondering how long the current Playonline maintenance was going to be?
    Bob Smith: I installed FFXI last night, but have as of yet been unable to register for a Playonline account, as it keeps saying its down for maintenance, even though I can't find any information about this
    SEL Agent Eleanor: I am afraid that it is not infact a maintenance
    SEL Agent Eleanor: It has been caused by a technical issue caused by our billing partner
    Bob Smith: Oh I see.
    SEL Agent Eleanor: and we have to wait until our billing partner has fixed this issue then our server can go back up.
    Bob Smith: Oh.
    Bob Smith: has any estimate been given about how long this will take?
    SEL Agent Eleanor: I am afraid not. As soon as we have news it will be posted on our website.
    Bob Smith: May I ask why no information has been posted yet? the homepage doesn't contain any information about this issue,
    SEL Agent Eleanor: Yes it does:
    SEL Agent Eleanor: FINAL FANTASY XI Official Web Site
    Bob Smith: There's no mention of that page on the homepage anywhere? FINAL FANTASY XI Official Web Site Atleast I dont think there is, I cant see any.
    SEL Agent Eleanor: It is under, europe, information
    SEL Agent Eleanor: there are 2 posts
    Bob Smith: Ok thank you =)
    SEL Agent Eleanor: Keep an eye on this
    Bob Smith: I definetly will
    SEL Agent Eleanor: As there will be new news as soon as we have more info
    Bob Smith: Thank you for your help =)
    SEL Agent Eleanor: You are welcome
    SEL Agent Eleanor: Is there anything else I can help you with today Bob?
    Bob Smith: Nope thats all
    Bob Smith: thank you very much
    SEL Agent Eleanor: Thank you for visiting our PlayOnline Chat line Bob. Take care and have a good day!

    So keep your eyes on this page:

      They've said nothing about the maintance being done.

      They posted a follow-up, sure, but it was essentially just repeating what they said first. Seriously though, it's been down for three days now.

          Thanks guys... Or girls...

          The hate I that was harbouring for Squareenix and Playonline is now being directed towards their billing partener... whoever that company is ¬_¬

            Got the same problem here, been away for a while and just reinstalled game yesterday

            It appears the problem lies with the billing company that PoL uses.

            So don't worry, its not your end, others who are trying to use the registration server are having same issue.

            Prolly best to try again, in say, a few hours. No point in banging on on it every minute to see if up, thats a recipe to drive you insane.!

            Have a nice one.
