For a group of people who claim to struggle with their monthly subscription fee, they seem to always have money for exuberant delivery fees and their weekly fantasias. One UberEATS driver who preferred to stay anonymous with they/them pronouns knows first-hand what it is like to deliver to houses they know are inhabited by FFXIV players.
Notice that we did not say “own.” Good luck owning a house in this economy. We no longer judge anyone who still lives with their aging parents who also do not have a long-term plan for when they are no longer around.
You would think we would talk about the body odor emanating from the house so badly that the lawn is filled with dead birds who took a whiff and immediately nose-dived into a window, on purpose.
However, that is not the case with identifying a FFXIV player. Because the critically acclaimed MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV has a free trial and includes the entirety of A Realm Reborn AND the award-winning Heavensward expansion up to level 60 with no restrictions on playtime, about 1 in every 3 houses on a block has at least one Eorzean residing in it.
“I know when I’m delivering to the house of a FFXIV player,” the UberEATS driver tells us, “They order the same thing over and over like it’s an extra irl daily, and don’t want their doorbell rung to remain socially isolated.”
“Honestly, they’re my favorite customers.”
