To get access to other areas of the forum you need to of made a C-store purchase or have to of purchased a subscription. Once either of those requirements is met, the forums are unlocked to you.

Ok - but you can only buy credits after you have been playing for a while. Just tried - it said I was a NOOB!

Very strange game.

yep, basically the game is free but you have to pay to use the forums :rolleyes:
I guess cryptic doesn`t care to hear what free to play players have to say, well thats their loss, i`ve never paid to use an internet forum and I never will.

It`s bad enough that they expect us to beta test their game and patches for them and report the bugs,but it`s way out of line for them to charge us to do it,if anything they should be paying US to do it.

So let me get this right...the base game is free to download, then its free to play.
The forums are not free - except this one (PC / TECH HELP).
You can if you wish buy (using real world cash) extra items - this shows as buying Credits or C - then you can access all the forums.

Is that correct?

If so can anyone buy the credits - assuming they have the money (card)? or do you ahve to be a certain rank in the game - ie have played for a while - that was the impression I got when I tried to buy credits or zen.
