Nobody thinks buying billboards to promote this NSFW Final Fantasy 14 nightclub was a good idea

This Saturday, July 9, the Rain Nightclub will host a beach party on Final Fantasy 14’s Balmung server, presumably to make use of a new system that allows players to travel between data centers. To advertise the event, the club’s owner, Reverious, bought four billboards in California and Texas. Night clubs (opens in new tab) and parties are pretty common in the MMORPG, but advertising them on a real life billboard using modded outfits and the official game logo without Square Enix’s permission is most definitely not.

In a now-deleted tweet, DJ Potate, one of the freelance DJs that will stream the event on Twitch, posted a photo of one of the billboards advertising the Summer Bash event. The billboard depicts a Viera character wearing a modded outfit datamined from the upcoming Moonfire Faire event with the official FF14 logo and trademark info below her. There are links to three Twitch channels that will stream it live, the Rain Nightclub Discord, and a Square Enix copyright mark on there too, despite the company having no involvement.
