Gold Subscription Sale
 
Captains, the Olympics may be ending, but now is the perfect time to go Gold. We're discounting three-month Gold subscriptions, giving you a monthly stipend, increased Foundry access and more!

If I was not already Lifetime, I might do this :P

Just some random thoughts...
If you're levelling one or more new characters, a sub is a no-brainer value, if only for the bank slots. No question.

Hopefully this means they're close to turning the Foundry back on. ;)

Unless the stipend policy has changed, be aware that monthly stipends are awarded month+1, so the first day of your second month, you get the points. Unless they make an exception for "3-month packages", that means if your sub lapses you won't get anything for month 3+1. I'd love to be corrected on this, but if not, caveat emptor.

Finally, the matrix looks a bit odd, with "customer service" in lower case, with no information about the difference between Limited and Unlimited.

Gold members also get a monthly Cryptic Store stipend of 500 ZEN, half the value of the monthly subscription.
In no world is $5.00 half of $14.99.... 1/3 yes, 1/2 no. Either that needs to be rewritten or youre telling us that the monthly sub is only worth $10.00 and were dumb for paying $14.99 for it...

Also... my advice, tell us when this ends... not just 'Limited time."

The current sale makes the Gold only cost $10.00. Thus with the Stipend it's only costing the player $5.00. Thus half.

Just checked... the 1 month is still $14.99.... so no.

This thread is about the sale. The sale is for 3 months, at a rate of $10.00 a month. So yes, if you do the sale you're paying $30.00 and getting back $15.00 of Zen. Thus 50%.

Except thats not what it says... It doesnt specify at this rate...

Youre right... if I sub for 3 months in the sale, than the value would be equal to 3 months for 10 bucks... but that doesnt change the fact that the actual value of a 1 month sub is $14.99 and 500 zen is not half of that.

Not a chance.

the gold vs silver matrix says that gold members gain additional bank and inventory slots on level up. If I go gold would already leveled characters gain those inventory & Bank Slots?

If so do you keep those benefits if the subscription expires, the extra bank and inventory slots.

Also, how does this affect the new account bank feature. Does one gain access to that as past gold members do?

Do you keep the account bank as well?

As I understand it past gold members who have gone silver have the account bank feature as well, but I may be wrong.

Oh and what does priority login mean? Is that possibly what is causing my server disconnects, the fact that I only have a silver account?
