# 1 Gold Subscription Sale
08-10-2012, 07:14 PM
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!

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.

The way I feel about the game at the moment and Cryptic/PWE I say my answer is a very firm NO will stay Silver

So Silver members can either spend $20 for 20 of the new Account bank slots (and how ever much else for the rest of the Gold perks) or they can spend $30 and get $15 worth of Zen as well as 20 Account Bank slots and all the purchasable Gold perks they would otherwise have to spend Zen for. Seems like a no brainer to me... Sadly I'm already a LTS

I'm tempted by this, but I also have no money at the moment. So what exactly is the definition of "limited time" here?

I was hoping for a sale on lifetime. Missed out on the previous one by just a dozen or so hours.
