World of Warcraft Magazine – Dead After Five Issues

Just in my mailbox this afternoon:

Dear Subscriber,

The World of Warcraft Official Magazine is ending its run, and the current issue, #5, will be the last one.

This has been a difficult decision to come to. Although both Blizzard Entertainment and Future US are very proud of the magazines that we have created together, we have each decided to focus our efforts on other areas.

We really appreciate your support for the magazine and would like to offer you a premium based on your remaining subscription term, or, if you prefer, a full refund of your remaining balance instead. To redeem your premium or request a refund, please visit www.worldofwarcraftthemagazine.com by September 30, 2011.

On the website, you’ll need to input the following code to access your options:

[Code removed… mine, not yours!]

(Please be aware this code is non-transferable and can only be used once.)

Again, we would like to thank you for your continued support and hope you enjoy reading issue 5 as much as we enjoyed making it.

With thanks,
Future US and Blizzard Entertainment

Well, I wonder what brought that on?

2 weeks notice to think on their offer on my remaining subscription.  Here is what they are giving out:

Worth $95 They Say

Or I can, if I follow the very tiny fine print at the bottom of the page, just get my money back, which should be about $60.

Accepting your special offer eliminates the possibility of getting a refund.

Some WoW pets and another magazine, or cash… that will no doubt take forever to arrive?
