PlayOnline: Changes to Sending Gil

Changes to Sending Gil
Limitations on sending gil have been put into effect with the February 21 version update.
-A cap of 1 million has been imposed on the amount of gil deliverable at one time.
-Gil can now be placed in only one of the eight available slots for delivery at a time.
These restrictions only apply to sending gil. No restrictions have been imposed on receiving gil.
The above measures were put in place to combat the trading of large amounts of gil for money in the real world (Real Money Trading, or RMT). Gil purchased by RMT is most often traded using the in-game delivery function, so limitations on sending gil were deemed an appropriate countermeasure.
The FINAL FANTASY XI development team considered informing players of this change in the Topics section before the version update. However, if players knew about the restrictions in advance, the market might have been flooded with RMT gil before the update, further exacerbating inflation. We decided that informing players of the changes at the same time as the version update would help keep the Vana'diel economy stable.
A tax on sending gil was among the measures considered, but the development team is still observing the effect of the RMT countermeasures implemented on February 9. Therefore, we determined that the best course of action for this update would be to simply impose a limit on the amount of gil deliverable at once.
We will continue to develop countermeasures against RMT and violations of the user agreement, and we would like to assure our players that all efforts are being made to ensure a fair playing experience.
We hope to have your continuing understanding and cooperation in creating a Vana'diel that everyone can enjoy.
