Luckily you won't have to wait until November now....and should receive back all your unused pre-paid time in cash :)


So Yay :)

Yep

Guess that closes the door on this thread!
I wouldn't use the word "replace," but there's no word for "take over for you and make everything better almost immediately," so we just say "replace."

Sort of.  And I find it really interesting that they'd not worked any of this out beforehand.  I mean, this should have been worked out in between when the executives made their decision and when it was announced and implemented.  Personally I find it really interesting that this only happened after we seriously started talking about "is this legally actionable"...  Remember what Olantern said about avoiding litagation in the first place in his discourses about the legal aspects?  Somehow I feel this is related.



So, they've done somethng they've never done before.  Theyv'e blinked.  So, what do we do next?

NCsoft DID also offer refunds AS WELL as time for other games when they shuttered TR.  This is not totally unprecedented.   Someone in the discussion thread of this announcement on the COH forums posted the TR shutdown letter, and in one part it does specifically mention refunds.

Okay.  But if they had an already established policy, why wasn't it ready to go as soon as they announced this to the world?  why make us wait 3 weeks?

That I do not know, and I'm not willing to speculate.

Perhaps their legal team still had to look over the release document.  Perhaps our protests did make them take pause.  Perhaps they really and truly care SO little for us that coordinating the shutdown announcement and this one was of absolutely no concern.  (wouldn't surprise me if the payment division wasn't involved in the decision, and thus..wouldn't have known either).

There's no factual evidence to draw a conclusion from.
