As a rule, we never remove ANY members from the FC, if they have been Inactive (offline) for up to 1 month. Therefore, if you are taking a week, two weeks, or even three weeks break from the game - there's nothing you need to do. You 100% will NOT be removed from the FC, so enjoy your break and you'll still be in the FC when you get back
Taking a break for over a month?
If you're planning on taking a break from the game (perhaps going on holiday, or maybe you're unwell) and expect it to be longer than a month (or 4 weeks), there is a risk that you could be temporarily removed from the FC due to inactivity. To make sure that you are not removed, all you need to do is head to your Forum Profile, and update your "Activity" section. This allows you to let the Officers know that you're taking a break, and how long you'll be away for. This will guarantee 100% that you are NOT removed from the FC, even if you're away for over a month!
See the screenshots below for guidance. In Alith you never need to worry about taking a break from the game and being removed from the FC for inactivity. Even in the worst case scenario, if you are offline for over a month, and do not make us aware, we will still always email every person to let you know if we need to remove you for inactivity, but that you'll be instantly welcomed back into the FC if / when you return to FF14.
