Update, July 6: FF14 Nightclub Rain has removed its billboards announcing an upcoming event after attacks from a number of trolls, in response the owner called “50/50 love and hate”.
The staff in the game FF14 A nightclub has paid for billboards that will be placed in both Austin and Houston, Texas, in order to advertise their upcoming beach party event on a Balmong server. Apparently more California billboards were ordered, but they never showed up. The billboards have been removed in Texas, after they remained for less than two days.
On Twitter, people have been speculating that a developer and publisher Final Fantasy 14, Square Enix, due to the use of billboards for its characters. Others questioned whether staff at the club would be banned from the game, as the club’s website shows modifications prohibited under the game’s terms of service.
This was reportedly not the case. Speaking to GLHF, one of the owners of the Revarious club said Square Enix had not been in contact with them, neither about billboards, nor regarding modifications and bans. The staff decided to remove the billboards after comments from the community.
While discussing the decision to remove the billboards, they said, “We removed the boards of our own free will,” and continued, “We listened to the actual reality.” FF14 The community and we don’t want to stress anyone else in the community about continuing to stay awake and forcing Square Enix to do this.”
Talking about the impact of trolls on the team and event, he continued, “A lot of the trolls who join our feud are not part of anyone else’s. FF14 Controversies, and they literally just join Twitter to the trolls.” They explained that they were worried about harassment “I think the worst part about all of this is that one of the DJs got attacked, and it makes me really sad. It is not part of Rain Nightclub or billboard design idea. We just asked her to play songs for our party.”
People have been speculating about the cost of the billboards, with some estimates as high as $12,000. However, Revarious confirmed that the entire endeavor cost the team $160 in total. The billboards were rented an average of a day and were removed within 48 hours. Since billboards in California were canceled prior to their rise, no cost was incurred.
Original story, July 5: a FF14 A player bought billboards in both Texas and California to advertise his in-game beach party.
friends FF14 Rain nightclub, who lives on a Balmung server, has bought four billboards in hopes of attracting players Final Fantasy MMO to their beach party. As announced in Twitter, two billboards are already located in Austin and Houston, Texas. According to the club’s discord server, two more will be launched later today in California.
Club events, such as beach party, are common in it FF14. Much like real club events, they happen every night around the world, with staff paid to host them with the in-game currency, Jill. These events are broadcast on platforms like Twitch, in order to promote the clubs.
Aside from her Discord and Twitter pages, Rain also has her own website where she promotes upcoming events. Paying entire billboards to advertise an MMO event is a bit erratic.
While it is not illegal to advertise FF14 Parties in the real world – as long as the real money is not changed – there may be some issues from the publisher Square Enix. Some of the characters on the club’s website have been created using modifications that conflict with the game’s Terms of Service. The ad also uses Square Enix’s own personalities and characteristics, presumably without consent.
One of the club’s owners, Revarious, believes the billboards are worth more than the money. Speaking to the GLHF, they said, “I’ve given more stuff to the community in two weeks than the whole bulletin board has cost us, and we’re still giving out all these gifts at the same time,” they continued, “We happen to have a lot of great people in Rain where we can do these things and gifts to society.
The timing of the event is perfect for Rain, as patch 6.18 has just been dropped allowing players to switch between data centers. This means that more players will be able to attend the event. you can learn The five biggest changes from patch 6.18 over here.
