Bite My Ass, SOE

I have been playing Everquest as a paying customer since 2001; up until EQII was released I purchased every expansion pack and stuck around for every monthly fee increase.

When Everquest II came out in 2004, I was on the very first day and shelled out a few extra bucks to get the Station Access "full package". I have subsequently purchased every expansion pack, and every fun pack Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) has released in the past two years.

After five years and hundreds of dollars, I consider myself a loyal, long-time customer. And how does SOE appreciate their long-time customers? Let me tell you.

As mentioned in a previous post, I've lost my credit card. I finally got the new one in last night and was going and changing the credit card on all of my automatic withdrawal accounts (World of Warcraft, Everquest, Sirius, GoDaddy, etc.). It was a simple matter, obviously, until I attempted to change the billing information for my SOE account. I couldn't find where to do it.

Finally, a Help section informed me that if I had Station Access I would have to cancel my subscription and then remember to start up a new subscription at the end of the billing cycle. *blink blink* Wah...?

I wouldn't lose my characters, but I'd better remember to get in there and set it back up at the right time! I couldn't understand it; it was so stupid. How hard could it be to allow me to change my billable credit card?

I griped about it all evening and when The Worm heard me, he stated, "You know why they do it that way, don't you?"

I shook my head, figuring their web developers were just idiots.

"Remember, Station Access prices went up a year or so ago, but it didn't affect those who already had Station Access, like us."

And it dawned on me; they were forcing me - a longtime customer, obviously, if I was paying original Station Access fees - to take on the new fee. Yes, it's only $3 more a month, but that isn't the point. It's the principle of it. It's shitty. It's underhanded and sneaky. And it's sure as fuck not like SOE needs the money!! From Everquest alone they're raking in millions.

A July 2003 article I found has the original Everquest with 430,000 subscribers. EQII may be somewhat less, but, trust me, they aren't hurting.

It's a dirty, really-fucking-shitty way to treat your customers, imo. And if I didn't love the goddamn game so much, I'd of left and stopped putting up with their bullshit years ago. SOE, you fucking suck.

    With havin so much written content do you ever
    run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has
    a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being
    stolen? I'd really appreciate it.

    Hi there, I think your site could be having web browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however,
    if opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues. I just
    wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful site!

    Have you ever thought about who you may have been in a past life? Have you ever had previous lives? Do you have faith in your own reincarnation? I used to wonder about who was I in my past life but have since found many different ways to discover my buried past life memories.

    yours require a massive amount work? I'm completely new to blogging however I do write in my
    diary everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and
    feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new
    aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which
    I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!

    Tell me on the subject of Olympic Stadium in Montreal?
    It is big. And due to sh==itty- shady structure the "retractable" roofing can not
    be retracted and because it is definitely crappy,
    no events are held in the Winter. A big mess. Said roofing will
    eventually need to be replaced...a matter of a bizillion dollars or
    whatever.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and
    she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
