People can now no longer use the ReFriender Twitter system to find people to play Final Fantasy XI with online. Square Enix took to Twitter to confirm the system is dead. It blamed changes with the way how the social media service works as to why it could no longer keep running. Essentially, it’s now impossible for users and players to log in and register.

Here’s the official announcement. The official website for the Final Fantasy XI ReFriender service also shut down and now displays a similar message.

Final Fantasy XI ReFriender appeared for Twitter users back in 2018. People would log in with their account, then explain details about your character’s name, their portrait, and the Linkshell and World you are on. You could also say how long you’d been playing. You could then go through different profiles and say whether you did or didn’t know them. If you said you did, than the other person would be notified and shown your details. You could then reconnect.

Final Fantasy XI is available for the PC. The MMORPG ended up getting two updates in May 2023.
