Do you lose the Gold Member Stipend with Lifetime Membership?
 
It seems to me that, if this is the case, you are actually giving up more to get the Lifetime membership than you get by staying monthly. Both are "Gold Memberships," aren't they?

After all, you still only get "loyalty" rewards based on the number of days you are a member, so why would the counting stop when it comes to Cryptic point - sorry, Zen - stipends?

If I am wrong about this, and you are supposed to receive monthly "Gold Member" benefits as a Lifer, I certainly have missed a stipend or two...

all stipends go directly to your ingame balance now. if you don't keep track of it its easy to miss your stipend going in. Most folks who say they havent had it, have upon checking/reflection realised they did.

We're getting it.

Atleast were... I admit I'm unsure about this month, I bought c-points for some packs and never noticed if I got it or not.

Yes, lifers continue to get their 500 Zen stipend each month for the lifetime of the game.

Actually, I am pretty meticulous - perhaps even OCD - about keeping track of my balance, so I know I have not gotten the stipend. If, as everyone is saying, we still get it, I will wait and see what happens this month. My "anniversary date" is only a few days off, so I won't have long to find out.

Thanks for the input.

Have you bought any C-points / Zen recently? As in paid cash for them (not Exchange / stipend)

It has been a while, but my balance has not changed since the last time I did so. Why do you ask?

actually im gonna hazard a guess (and can be way off base here mind ya) that our LFT/gold stipends are gonna hit after zen conversion Thursday.

I know i normally get mine at beginning of month but haven't gotten it yet...but like i said with the conversion going down they might have waiting to starve off a potential customer service nightmare if anything got lost in the shuffle....
