Is this 10m unique accounts total(for all time) or are they saying there are 10m active players in the game today?

10 million for all time. Only 664K is currently active.

Pretty much why reports like this are fud. They're bragging about stats that literally don't matter. I'm one of those 10 million, and haven't played the game in so long that I don't even remember what kind of character I played.

False tracking to inflate stats. This is Microsoft territory of numbers reporting.

Personally, this is my all time favorite mmo. I don't play it anymore, but I put well over 1000 hours into it. Beautiful world, characters, animations, combat effects, sound and music...its excellent, and my favorite ff game tbh.
