Hey I bought the PC Digital Version of the game yesterday night through the Square Enix Store.

I downloaded the FFXIVARR installer and initiated the log-in part - BUT HAVE NOT INSERTED THE REGISTRATION CODE.

Does the first free 30 days period started the moment I paid for the game? or the moment I put the registratioin code in? or when I first launch the actual game?

I discovered I have to be away for about a week plus. Therefore I don't want to get those days wasted.

So again: I didn't put any code in, should I wait for after I am back, or does it even matter?? Anyway to check the countdown?

The 30 days starts from the time you enter the registration code in to your account. Until then, it is essentially sitting on a store shelf. Feel free to take off as much time as you want.
