I can't think where else to put this so it's going here unless someone moves it. I cancelled my account last night or thought I did, after clicking to cancel my status went to "cancellation pending" and it is still showing that now, a day later. The renewal date for my subscription is listed as 5th July and I'm now assuming that my account won't be cancelled until tomorrow at which point another months payment will be taken.

How can it take over a day to cancel payments / subscriptions but only a matter of minutes to authorise and take payments?! PLEASE tell me that my credit card won't be charged again tomorrow or I'll be seriously annoyed! I had to make this thread after Mandos 'kindly' closed the other topic I mentioned this in without replying to this point at all.

Yes the Timing of the patch is quite impeccable! "well if there going to quit, at least well get another months payment from them.."

Well it was working fine this morning, as I cancelled both my accounts just fine.

Its nothing to do with the changes that have come into the game viz-a-viz combat etc, but it IS to do with the fact that we are playing a Beta.

I just don't feel inclined to pay for the privilege of bug testing.

Shame really, the game has HUGE amounts of promise, but life is really too short for the technical aggro you go through just to have a half decent time.

If you wait for the game to come out of beta you'll be so far behind it wouldn't be fun to play anyway.

Find me another game to play and I'll quit with you guys. Theres just nothing better out there, which begs the question "Are our expectations too high?"

IMHO and most others, software is way behind hardware, hopefully that gap will be closed soon and we'll get some good games.

Orracle, I will not stick to a bad game just because there is nothing better out. There are millions of things I can do with my life until something else comes out.

I'll just wait for a game that aims to entertain rather than a game that have several clear timesinks build into it.

After seeing your posts in other threads regarding people leaving the game.
I'd like to personally thank you for pointing out what many have said in the past. Your Fanboy attitude only adds extreme weight to the fact NEW PLAYERS ARE SCREWED. The longer they wait to buy this game.....

Again thanks =]

The problem with "you'll be so far behind it wouldn't be fun to play anyway." is that it takes a couple of weeks to figure that out. And once the new player does, that player leaves. But it will be hard to detect.

So it's unlikely that CCP will notice from player behaviour, that's why I for one think it's importat to tell CCP that here on these boards.

And I for one have tried to explain several of the problems as I see them. But I do get the feeling that CCP actually want's f.i. some corps to have a monopoly on key products a.s.o.

Atleast that's what I've been reading here.

So I really think that new players saying "Ok, so what's the point of even trying" and leaving will be a problem for EVE. EVE will grow, but much slower than it could have.

yes, CCP is going to create items, thats 1 of a kind(unique)... and one corp is going to own this, and thereby monopol on this particular item...

Will be cancelling aswell soon havent been able to play for 2 days now. I have 9 days before I get charged so CCP has 4 more days before I cancel my account.

Starwars Galaxies looks good, the expansion will include space travel and combat too.

Oh well I was having fun with this game but wasting 5+ hours of my time trying to get there !@#!@# patch to work isnt worth it. Never ever have ahad so much trouble with a online game. To bad I can not get my money back for this game.

You don't like the game - fine, ok, you are leaving.
But to think this is a beta?

I've not come across a game yet, either online or offline, that doesn't require balancing, patches (sometimes major ones) and is classed as fully finished on the day of release.

I've been playing Everquest for over 4 years - and still patching, correcting etc after over 4 years of being out.

If you want a game thats fully finished when its released, with no balancing/nerfing/patches, then you have to write it yourself.
Oh, and SWG has had major problems - seems to need a lot more patching than even EVE.
