Final Fantasy XIV players report being banned on Xbox for advertising their free companies (guilds)

No, not a specific free company, just any free company


So how are things going with the Final Fantasy XIV version on Xbox Series X|S? Well, you would think that Microsoft had done enough to help shoot this particular version in the foot by adding a subscription fee to Game Pass on top of its existing subscription fee, but apparently not. It turns out that players are now being banned for advertising their free companies – i.e., guilds – to other potential players, something that is not just normal but accepted practice in the game.

As the thread makes clear, these are not bans coming from Square-Enix in any capacity, but bans from Microsoft for players using the official Xbox group-finding tool to advertise their free companies. So it’s not a case of Microsoft watching in-game chat and banning people for shouting in Ul’dah… which also makes this somehow even more ridiculous, prompting further discussion. In short, everything is going great for this console launch.
