I think it should've been pretty obvious that it was an MMORPG and that you were going to be paying monthly (as indicated on the packaging). The termination of game data because of late fees is BS though, courts have ruled that despite what the user agreement says, that game data is that user's (ie people can file claims against someone for deleting such data, angry spouse or SquareEnix). Charges while suspended are garbage, the game turns off your service on day 1 of the next month if you haven't payed up. Also I've been a few days late with my payment before and never see any of these fees that they're talking about. If you owe them money, then they have the right to charge interest, but as I understand it, it's pay-to-play. You don't owe them for time that you're not playing, they should hold your data and await your return.

Their litigation would be like a "Chocobo Riding Contest", I suppose.

Wow termination of data is harsh.
And according the kraftlos, if he's not being targeted by their supposed wrath, who is?

Ummm late payments? I have been playing this game on/off for the last 3 years and whenever I've come to the end of the month and haven't payed, my account just deactivates until I want to play the game again and reactivate.

This has recently been discussed among the FFXI community and nobody has even experienced any of the problems above. =/

SE has been sued before, nothing too surprising. Though, this one is less humorous than the law suit here in Illinois. I wanted to cry, Illinois.
