Just because you’ve bought your passes every month for the last 39 months means NOTHING, Zip, Nill, Nada. You didn’t buy any part of the park. You had access to it, and that’s it. Now, you can actually buy parts of the park if you so desire, and go to those areas any time you’d like after you make the purchase and never pay for the access again.
Why is it so hard for you people to get it through your heads that you didn’t BUY anything. You leased access to the DDO servers. You got what you paid for, access to their servers any time you wanted as long as the servers where up. Turbine is changing the way they deal with subscriptions and accounts access to DDO, either deal with the new system, or walk away. But sitting here whining and complaining is making you look like a bunch of little kids who’ve been told they can’t have their way and are now throwing a hissy fit.
They’ve made allowances for former VIPs to get no account locks like F2Ps get, you get double the character slots, you keep all your old unlocks, (Warforged and Monk weren’t unlocks, and yeah I’m a little miffed on this but ***). It’s might not be as much as some of you wanted, but its more than most companies would normally give. They didn’t have to give anything. Turbine had to stop giving at some point, they picked where they did. You might not like it, but they’re a business and need to make a profit to keep the servers up and running so we can access DDO. If they gave away everything to former VIPS who go F2P then they’d be out of business pretty quickly.
This is a lot more than I’d intended to write, but seriously I’d so tired of reading the “I’m not asking for everything, only what I have now” posts, and wondering, are people really this dumb? It’s been pointed out time and again why this is going on the way it is, but they still wont accept that they’re asking for everything free.
LoL sorry, I’m in a ranty mood.
