EverQuest Denied!

Ah well, somebody hit the switch at SOE and the free play time is finally over for EverQuest.

Subscription Required

However, 24 hours later, I haven’t heard anything about my support ticket and when I try to go to the subscriptions page for my Station Account, all I get is an error.

We will not take your money

I’ve been “trying again later” since Tuesday morning.  That doesn’t seem to do the trick.

And I got a tweet from Stargrace today that said she had the same problem in the past and that it took SOE two weeks to deal with it.

So there may be a considerable interruption in my EverQuest posts while SOE decides whether or not they want to take my money.  My past experience with SOE support does not make me optimistic.

    My one experience with EQ support was …I’m not even sure when. Ages ago. Around the launch of PoP I think. I got stuck on a boat. I was somehow jammed into the boat geometry and couldn’t get out of it or take any actions. For example, trying to hearth out failed repeatedly. I sent in a ticket. Finally, after five days, my sister’s boyfriend swam out to timorous deep and teleported me out of the boat with a summon. Based on that experience, “When hell freezes over” is a pretty good time to expect a response. I can only hope they’ve improved since then.

    I got a response from support at close to midnight last night (so somebody was working late… or working the late shift) that they had fixed my issue. I logged in this morning to check and, sure enough I can now see the subscriptions page again. Only one evening missed.

    Elapsed time to response: ~28 hours. About the best response time I have observed from SOE. They still stand at about 70% for “responded at all” however for my tickets.

    I’ve always had exemplary service from SoE and that’s over several MMOs and a decade of play.

    Fingers crossed I didn’t just jinx it!

    This morning, Feb 25, my account was finally locked. Now I must weigh the decision of returning or not?

    The easy answer is yes; where else can you get this sort of fun for 50 cents a day. The more philosophical answer would be no; why should I pay to play a 12 year old game that I played so much so long ago?

    The rub and the dilemma.

    I was getting the same error pages at times yesterday when dealing with tickets I had submitted as well. I found that if I did a sort of reverse tunneling through the site, and got to the support page after logging in again, it usually worked out. It was a weird, going-around-your-elbow-to-get-to-your-ass type thing, but it worked.
