I have two main questions regarding these, and a third related one:
Can I add the code for two
box types (Collector's and DD, for example) and obtain the bonuses from both? (I believe I received some outfits with the DD edition I already have, and the Collector's edition apparently has some other outfits along with that snazzy badge, of course.)
Will I get the 30 days playtime from the extra box I add? (Say I add a Gold box to my already DD-enabled account, which is currently using the 30 days inclusive playtime, will I have another 30 days added?)
And finally, if I'm able to redeem
If I were to, say, purchase
copies of the original basic edition could I add the code
from each box
and obtain 30 days for each (an extra total of 60 days playtime).
I've seen a few posts about CO players that have been able to use multiple codes on the same account, and since I was able to extend my demo when it was disabled by adding a friend-referral code I expect that something similar will work, I'm just curious as to whether I'd get any extra playtime as well.
I think the 'days stacking rule works liike this:
You get 30 days for the first one of each type you have, EG. You create your account using the digital download edition - and get 30 days for that. You them by a copy of the standard Box edition and get the items and another 30 ndays for that; you then buy a copy of the collectors edition, ansd get the items and another 30 days for that.
Later; lets say you see that copys of the standard edition are going for $5.00 and you pick up a second copy and add the key - if it's from a vendor that had different pre-order items, you WILL get those items, BUT, as you already had a 'standard box edition' registered, and got 30 days from that first one, you won't get 30 more 'free' days from the second key.
