To be honest, I'mnot sure but I have an idea i want to run with. The Idea is this: To write the first hand account of creating a true MMORPG 2.0. In a rapidly changing genre, something has been forgotten. FUN! as has something else. Role-playing. =)

Guy and Dolls,

Please please please do yourself and your community a favour and VOICE your disgust at the Shoddy, underhand move by Atari and Cryptic to rescind the Subscrption offiers that were meant to be available until September 1st, AS ADVERTISED!!!

Fanboys, lay down your shields and cross the line.

If they get away with this, what will they do next?

Only by uniting and backing eachother will you make a difference.

EULA's do not allow companies in this biz to get away with murder (even if they think they do).

This is a blatant attempt to reduce thier losses based on a time dependant offer by now claiming they made a mistake and posting in a forum.

There was no mistake, either they knowing misold a product or they are attempting damage limitation.

WELL BOLLOCKS!

Cryptic have basically just stated FU Customer pay up and keep it coming, we need cash like you need blood and we're gonna blled you dry you dumb faced fucks! HaHa ONE BORN EVERY MINUTE!

So shout back! FU CRYPTIC, honour your deal and win back your playerbase or WE LEAVE!

Ok, since no one else will say it.

Pal, based on your post, it's pretty obvious you can't afford the lifetime offer anyway, so stop fantasizing.

Secondly I'm pretty sure anyone who plans on playing the game and sees your post will be very happy if you do leave and never come back.

While I think the tone of the OP is a bit overly dramatic, I do agree that Cryptic should take responsibility and do something about this screw up. I will post the same thing I posted on Beau's blog:

 

As someone who was there to see it go down:

There was no such warning in the emails. The only "were running out" warnings that were in existance were the ones posted a paltry 12 hours before they "ran out", and in the middle of the night I might add. In layman's terms, there was virtually no notice, and the said notice was posted only in a section of the forum no one saw because guess what? People already knew about the offer from say, the gigantic ad for it on the main page which certainly said nothing about limited supplies. The second was the newsletter everyone recieves, which also said nothing about limited quantities. In short, people who did see the thread title just thought "oh yeah i know about that deal already." and didnt think to look, and I don't blame them. Cryptic utterly failed or did not even try to draw attention to the fact that they were running out. Now this parts doubtful, but some say Cryptic actually edited that thread to say limited supplies only after the fact.

In addition, the site was up and down due to technical issues so many people, even if they did attempt to grab one at that time and happened to be up at that hour, could not due to website technical issues.

Cryptic totally dropped the ball on this one and pissed off a lot of people. The shills and rabid fanbois (and trolls) that defend cryptic based on technicalities and loopholes that were unethicaly exploited, like the fact that, sure, there was a warning, but it seemed so short notice and oddly timed in the middle of the night among technical issues that it may as well have not existed.

Before you take the side of the trolls and shills defending this epic screw up, please consider this story from someone who was there.
