Mildly off-topic, but now that registration server maintenance is over, I tried to transfer. Your current region and POL region are different (I moved from US to Europe 4 years ago), yada yada, don't do this, don't do that. Okay, lets hope it won't cause huge issues at some point.
Yes yes, I read it, I want to transfer anyways. Nope, can't transfer, need to add payment option first. Try to add credit card. Nope, can't do, perhaps because it expires in 2 months (new card won't arrive for a few weeks).
Start over. Okay, add crysta (when it prompts through account transfer link). Nope, can't do, some problem with that. Try adding crysta directly then! Paid for crysta, wait for confirmation.... and wait... and wait... an hour later e-mail comes that crysta has been added.
Now can I transfer? Yay, finally got to transfer but it says that everything costs 0 crysta. Hmm, okay, yes, I want to reactivate. That should be ok now, try to log in to FFXI. Nope! You don't have active content IDs. Back to Square-enix account site. Reactivate I said! Still everything costs 0 crysta. Check again if can log on. Nope... check the payment status. Next predicted payment date April 3rd. What the hell?! I want to pay today, not tomorrow!
/end rant. Yeah, it's messed up. -_-
