I've been a lifetime subscriber to Star Trek Online since the beta phase. I've never played another one of your games. The other day, I received an email notifying me that the Champions Online "Alert System" was going live. (I assume this is something like STO's "Red Alerts" or "Events".
I've never played a superhero game before, and I've certainly never played Champions Online before.. so you can imagine my confusion at receiving the email.
On the other hand, I'm really glad you sent it to me.
This last weekend, I decided to try out Champions Online, since it's "Free to play".. and you know what? it's really fun. I really love the "Teleportation" travel power.. and I've been having a lot of fun with the game.
I went outside into the "real world" today to go pick up some things from the store, and while I was out it started pouring rain, they raised the price on the items I needed, and then when I got home.. the Account System is offline across all Cryptic games.
Can't wait til those servers come back online. I'm ready to jump back into the superhero action!
