Sony Station new subs?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
well I was checking some threads on mmorpg.com and ppl said vanguard was free for a certain time. So I decided to check my account and I find that Vanguard, SWG and EQ2 have time on them? I dont understand how but they do. Anyways EQ2 doesnt expire till 8/1/08 and the other 2 till 7/31/08.

Anyone know why this is? Is this some promotion?

SOE has the absolute WORST customer service/relations, yet they wonder why they lost 1/2 their remaining players to AoC.

This comes as no surprise.

Not that bad? They suspend/ban players like it was a privilege to play. They refuse to make good, tough raids for those players at the end-game. Mobs are just copy-pasted. They leave raid mobs bugged for months, until THEY decide they want to let you kill them. They refuse to use proper loot tables for contested mobs. They've banned people for leveling too fast. They've suspended people for saying the word "vagina" in a completely scientific connotation. Pets can't follow you for crap. Every good skill has been nerfed to promote the idea of "mash attacks as fast as possible and hope you win". It took them 2 years to fix the AA that made "Sprint" an enchanters most damaging spell. I can go on and on with this......

Yet what's most important to them is the typo someone made in some level 10 quest dialog, making shinies lotto, and adding in more useless collections with useless rewards.


But yes, you get the RoK expansion for life.

someone feels strong about this lol. Did they really screw the game up or something? Cuz you seem to be on top of everything lol. Also, I only trialed vanguard, does this mean I get it for free now or is it just the trial deal for a month?

LOL well I played that game from right after release till a few raids into the latest expansion, around december last year. After that long you kind of pick up every little detail about a game. If you hang out on eq2flames.com for a bit and maybe ask some people, you'll see firsthand what kind of crap SOE pulls. All the top raid guilds communicate through that site, and their players generally know everything there is to know.

But yeah I think you'd be able to just keep playing vanguard if you just pay the monthly fee. But I'm not 100% sure.

Yea, they pulled that living legacy promotion to bring back people that have quit over the years. Yes you do get to keep the expansions. I play EQ1, and I had second account that was inactive that I was able to get back. I'm not sure about the other games but you also get in game items from it to help you not suck as much .
