While I am sure they will give us something, you really need to chill the heck out. They just gave us 30 days free.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

I know I am not entitled to extra time or anything, but it would give us customers a lot more respect for bioware and would go a long way to improving peoples current opinion of their CS. Sorry if it came across as me demanding compensation.

Hey man, Im an american living in the UK, and I also took the day off to play. We all got ****ed in the UK, but I can probaly predict there will be no compensation. These people talking about other MMOs, or WOW for example never had this many **** ups... I was playing that since 2004... this is the worst Ive had it (I dont care about any of your long descriptions about how bad it "can" be), and I understand thats hard for you people to comprehend while you insult this poor guy who just was asking or suggesting a little bit of compensation. But hey man, the option to unsubscribe is totally up to you, if the thought crossed your mind you dont need approval from any of the ******es and trolls on these forums. I thought about it, but hey theres pubs outside and plenty of drinking to do till I return home and play this piece of **** game.

Yes. But in that situation a storm cannot be controlled by the boat owner, in this, bioware has made a mistake, yes I understand there is downtime in mmo's, I will accept it, I don't mind them taking down the server when they have already stated there will be maintenance/patching, but they made a mistake today, I was just wondering if they would compensate us.

If it is your first MMO, let me help you; every MMO ever goes down for a number of reasons, fairly often. Sometimes this is schedules, sometimes it's a crash or something they need to do on the fly.

No MMO is the history of ever has a policy to refund this time unless it goes into the "more then a day" range, in which case it's still hit or miss.

BW just gave us all a free month (if we have a 50) and as a generally rule has fantastic CS. But you shouldn't expect them to do thing no other MMO does.


they are giving us a day of play time....
