Ok I understand that eve needs paying for, and when my subscription runs out, it normally tells me when I log on...then I pay.

But in the MIDDLE of playing I get a pop up saying "Your connection to game will be severed because of subscription payment needed" and POOF I was cut off.

Now if I had been in my carrier with 13 very expensive fighters out, or maybe if I had been in a freighter going through dodgy 0.0 and my connection was cut. Damn even if I was in a mid fleet battle and it was cut!!!!

This is NOT acceptable, I ALLWAYS pay my subscriptions in eve, and would appreciate not being cut off until I next log in. Are you really that money grabbing???

I wondered what the new code in Dragon patch was...way to go CCP, give a cigar to the man that thought this idea up duh!Evil or Very MadEvil or Very MadEvil or Very Mad

now this may sound funny to you but you can also pay on the day your subscription runs out. Just try to check when your subscription runs out and pay on the day it self :)

this is very difficult and requires only highskilled persons, so I don't know if you can handle it.

GOOD LUCK YARRRR!!

I guess that comes from China, cause afaik they pay their real playing time, not monthly like we do.

So you're saying you should be allowed to play for longer than you've paid for? Sorry fella, you pay for a service, if you don't pay for it for any reason then that service is removed.

A pop up say, 2 days before your account is due to expire sounds like a better idea. That gives you a reminder to pay, without you going over your subscription time.

You should be "cut off" at downtime. As I thought it had been, but to cut someone off at the minute/second/millisecond their account lapses is micromanging to excess. Considering many other factors, it should be at downtime when your account lapses. Cutting you off like that is very silly, if that's true.

It's not about getting an extra few hrs play, if you used your brains you'd realise that I would get charged for that next DT.

Man what is with the narrow minded children on these forums. It used to be that when it came time to pay you did so at the next dt. That way nothing got disrupted, hell I would have appreciated a 30 min warning, that would have been time enough to have sorted out the payment.

With life as hectic as it is (forgive me if my 3 month built in eve payment reminder was not remembered by myself!), I do not appreciate being cut off the second payment elapses! Could they not just wait until DT. So I forgot to pay my subscription the second before it ran out!!! Big freaking deal, they won't lose any money if they just waited until next DT. With 3 accounts that have been paid for, for over 3 years... it could be forgiven that sometimes I might forget when I need to pay.

What wwe don't need is our accounts being shut down with now warning in the middle of something important.

It shows a real mistrust and I find it quite rude that we were not even told this would happen.

I think it's ok to check for every login, but once you're in, you should stay.

Yes, I could get ~23 hours of "free" play time. Whoppity-de-do, who cares. I even doubt the connection would stay up for that amount of time.

A little warning when logging in would be nice. If CCP is able to spam us for every single DT for over an hour they can check if the subscription will run out until next DT and tell us.

A warning would be nice, yes, but if you'd just pay your subscription surely it's not an issue. What, you want free playtime? I don't think so, somehow. Giving stuff away for free and without reason just doesn't fit into a good business model.

Seriously, what will the denizens of this forum come up with to whine about next?

CCP could send a eve-mail to people a week before the sub runs out. I think this story was funny too though. Complaining about not being able to play for free... Laughing

While on the face of it, the point being made against the OP is fair enough; you pay to play. During any period for which we pay, we lose enough time in unscheduled DT for CCP to take us through to the next DT without cutting us off.

I think it is unreasonable of players to ask for compensation for unscheduled DT when CCP are fixing stuff, but it appears that when the boot is on the other foot, an extra couple of hours leeway is not allowed. Give and take is OK. Take, take, take isn't. Rolling Eyes

I wonder what every person in Eve getting 23 hours for free every month would do to their projections?

Because, please remember that anything nice that is done is generally abused shortly there after.

Ponder ...

What good will it do with extra leeway? It would be better to just warn people a few days before the time is up.

It's not playing for free, since you have to pay the next time you log in. Customer satisfaction is rather integral to a good business model (unless it's borked, like t2.)

It basically wouldn't cost ccp much, make the clients happy and feel cared for. Voila, forums will flow over with "I <3 ccp" posts.

Lol so you cant manage your subsciption properly, then come on here for a general chat whine? hahhaha. Wonder how you can handle the logistics of flying through dangerous space with a few billion ship + fitouts, and you can't manage to look at *my account* four times a year.

imo there is no "what if I fly XXX and get cut off", its everyones own fault if they do not pay in time and get cut off. It's not like CCP is our mom, reminding us when to pay.

But yeah a notice wouldn't hurt, even though it's not needed.

No... I'm complaining about being cut off with no notice, and having 13 fighters from carrier being left in limbo being attacked by npc... while I try to sort out my credit card details.

I'm saying a 10 min warning would have been nice... to give me time to get clear of danger.

I'm saying if eve just shut down for no reason you'd all moan like hell.

I'm also saying I realize you have to pay to play duh ... but that maybe just maybe... after paying for a 3 month subscription, I didn't realise that my subscription was up at 8.37:24sec and maybe because I'm used to it saying at DT that I need to pay... that I dodn't think that eve would just cancel out like that.
