    That is great news! I might not be a VIP but this certainly makes VIP even for a limited time more appealing to me.

That said, I wouldn't make the decision to get Season Pass based on whether we find the tech solution or come up with DDO Market bundles to get around it. You should contemplate the Season Pass under the assumption that those older features drop off after the Season Pass expires just like the other VIPs.
    I rarely but sometimes let VIP expire simply to pick up old packs.

    We have a winner! That probably would have gotten me interested as well.

    AND imagine after the 2 years go by, you're going back to "normal" VIP, and you're going to drop from 15% xp bonus back to 10%... Unless you buy another 2-year deal.

    I guarantee you won't get 8 rolls per week. This is another form of VIP, not a bonus on top of an existing VIP. Your existing VIP will pick back up and continue after the two year Season Pass.

    Brutascass, I was talking to Niminae as that post was directly above mine. If you took offense at what I said, I apologize for the confusion, and will endeavor in the future to add a quote from the post to which I am responding.

    Please YES.

    Once Upon a Time in a Version Long Long Ago the Store had a little tick box at the top which you could click on to allow you to view (& purchase) things you already had as part of VIP or which were excluded by race, level etc. Please bring this back. It is incredibly annoying to not be able to take advantage of sales because you are VIP. While I'm a long-time supporter of the game and will likely be VIP as often as I can, sometimes competing financial priorities force me to drop back to Premium for a while and it would be nice if I can have already purchased content while it was on sale while I was VIP so that it is available for those spartan times.

    Great to see your name back in the forums - now we just need to get Sapience to show up...


    PS: If you can find a way to increase the number of character slots we are allowed to purchase that'd be great too. I need more mules to hoard my shinies!

    They may not stack, but you should still be able to get more than 7 rolls in a week by gaming the timer.



    Also, yeah I would consider the deal at $200, but $300 is too much for too little. That's not even taking into account the odds of a person still playing in 2 years.

    Ok maybe I was being a little to subtle for you, the point I was trying make to you as gently as possible, is simply that there are responses from Standing stones and they should be the ones informing the players of the full details, and clearing up confusion that may occur, and not some other player who has read the same post as you!

    You state that the language is clear, yet it is far from it, take the use of the Verb to own, as pointed out by others, this is not the case. if I buy something that I and only I hold, that I can keep and put were I like, then I own it, but this is a case of obtaining access to certain as yet unknown restricted services, which are subject to forces outside the control of the buyer.

    This offer has been poorly presented, the short notice and urgency with which the player were given is uncalled for.

    As I stated I DO NOT think that there will be 8 gold rolls per, week, and the HONESTLY I DON'T KNOW and neither do you!!!


    It is one thing to given your views on a subject, it is another to act as if you are privy to information which you are not, so you use of the verb to "guarantee" is as out of place as that of to "Own"



    PLEASE let Standing Stone deal with responding to details and argue their own case, as this deal should be considered with care and further confusion may not aid others.


    Thankyou

    P.S. edit/addition
    Though you may consider the question of the number of rolls a silly one, the fact remains the this offer states that there will "Daily gold rolls", and though I seriously doubt that they will, though they should, the VIP gold roll is a "weekly gold roll", so it is no unreasonable to question it the weekly will continue along with the add Daily. As this offer states that you get access to the existing VIP status, which includes "weekly Gold roll" and thrown in as a sweetener is some other stuff, including a "daily gold roll", therefore if it is on 7 rolls. either you are not really get full access to the existing VIP, or the daily gold roll term is misleading and should clearly state that it is 6 extra gold rolls per week on top of the existing weekly.


    Further addition: To put it simply this is an offer which ties the buyer to a 2 year subscription with ToS and Conditions applying to the package, on purchase agreements are made, therefore it is contractual and as such the language used should be in no way possibly misleading, the way this has been presented is not as clear as it should be.

    Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
    The downside to sycophancy is that you never get the best deal.
    Free spirits are always condemned. Only sycophants are tolerated.
    Even negative feed back can have a positive side if used to improve.

    Interested in the concept but the value is too low for me to consider it at the moment. I would rather maintain VIP and save $100 over 2 years (gold rolls and cosmetics have limited appeal to me).

    Sorry, the forums are for everyone, and one player often tries to help other players here on these forums. To be completely honest, the language used in the offer by SSG is MUCH clearer than your own posts, else this conversation would have ended long ago.

    Anyone that has played DDO for any length of time (or ANY OTHER MMO for that matter) should be well aware of what "own" means in the context of online games. The term has been used for years in this manner.

    Since this is simply a matter of opinion, I cannot disagree with you here. Aside from what happens to a current VIP sub, which was asked and answered by SSG, I didn't think it was confusing in the least. Again, just my opinion.

    Okay, since you continue to belabor this point I concede. However, will 7 vs 8 gold rolls per week be the "make or break" issue for you? Go with the assumption it will be 7, then you won't be disappointed if you get 8, which you won't. I guarantee.

    I guarantee you I never acted as if, or implied that, I had information that others did not. I posted the links and quoted the exact language used. If English is not your primary language, then I apologize.

    From the small print here:

    "The DM's Favor benefit for free daily Gold dice rolls takes effect when you redeem your Season Pass code, and the DM's Favor ends on Dec 31st, 2020."

    The Daily Dice does not show the free gold roll on your character symbol like the free daily and weekly do.

    However, once one opens the dice, and moves to gold the roll costs zero.

    So, yes to answer question, the free daily gold rolls are already live.

    Note, making a new toon on another world will yield a free gold roll on the first day.
    A new toon that did the free gold roll earlyier this week, yields the phantom free gold roll right away.

    Before you go making a lot of new toons, be sure to relog into the toon you want your Otto's Box on.

    I was tempted to buy this, but 2 things made me decide not to...

    1) REMOVED
    2) I used shards for daily gold dice rolls today mainly for the extra xp. But the drops included 4x Tome of Fate (all BtA), 200x Bigby's hands and 25 scrolls of Holy Aura. Cosmetic armors (BtA), Tomes (BtA).

    GL with the sales of these passes. I will put my money in the next expansion.
