That's kind of dumb. 120 hours is very different from 5 days. No one is going to play 24 hours straight for five days in a row, in fact, what you're encouraging is something that could result in death. IIRC FFXI had a few players keel over from playing too long so it seems a bit irresponsible to even begin to imply that you can play FFXIV Gil "up to 120 hours free" over a 5 day period. Obviously its not advice on their part, or encouraged behavior, or the expected way to play, or anyone's fault but anyone dumb enough to try, but it stills seems a bit tasteless.
Do you guys really think they want people to play 120 straight? Bunch of red bull or amphetamine and you're away. Anyone who does it is careless. You can't just sit and avoid the bathroom or neglect moving around lol I wouldn't even push the 120 hour limit but I'll be taking advantage of the time I can play while my husband watches the kids tonight.  Buy FFXIV Gil; If the wait times are half as bad as they used to be you can just queue as dps and go cook a roast.
Dude clearly just misread the time line. No big deal. oh this is kinda misleading. I thought it was 120 total hours you could play anywhere from now til the 30th of august. which would have been an incredible, incredible free period. but it's just 5 days from first login during the period (which is still an amazing thing for a free period).
Some poeple who have been away may have to do updates to play and of course you cant update if your account is not current. Tyler Harper You didn't open the article, it's legit 5 days and the timer begins when you first log in. The event lasts a month+ but the timer begins when you log in. you do realize this lasts more than am month right? it's giving you 120 free hours over a 30 day period. Yeah I think people were misreading the start and end dates.
