Lore Sjöberg‘s Bad Gods site has a parody of MMO exit surveys up today.
Well, not a parody of just any MMO exit survey. As Lore says,
I’m recently returning to playing Warcraft after the 3.2 update. If you’ve ever tried to quit Warcraft — and you should, it’s an integral part of the complete experience — you’ll see that the subscription cancellation form does its best to cajole, argue, and guilt trip you into staying.
He isn’t kidding. On the account management page, attached to the link to the page to cancel your subscription, is this plea:
You can use this link to terminate your subscription online. Before you do so, we would love to hear from you by telephone. There are many steps that our representatives can take to address any problems you may be experiencing. Please call us at 1-800-59-BLIZZARD (800-592-5499).
Call us! Don’t just leave mad!
And that is before they really start in on you.
Anyway, be sure to actually select items from the “Why you’re leaving” drop down list of the parody. There is even a response in there to soothe Tipa’s concerns.
