# 1 Cancelling gold
09-03-2012, 02:14 AM
I have a question that has probably been answered a couple of times, but I couldn't find the information I'm looking for.

I've got a month of gold yesterday for all the obvious advantages, the question is, can I just cancel my subscription now and will it run until until october 2nd, or would they cancel it right now.
I know it should be the first, but I've seen some weird stuff before.

If you purchased a month of gold membership then you have a month of gold membership.

If you decide to cancel your gold subscription you are still considered a gold member until the end of the month that you paid for. At the end of that month you account would go back to its previous silver level membership, although you would have a few perks as you had once been a gold member (i.e. extra account bank slots).

This is how I understand it works however, so please don't take this as absolute fact.

I have been a gold member for over 500-days and I personally think it is well worth the cost.

Do you have a lifetime sub? Because if you pay by month, it's better to just buy the zen, then to get gold. I even checked out the 3 months thing, but even then it's not worth it, it's basically 1000 zen extra for which you pay about 15 euro's, so it's cheaper to just buy the zen. Everything else is fairly irrelevant.

A lifetime sub I can get if you're a 'hardcore' player though.

# 6 Subscription not for me
09-03-2012, 02:39 PM
After ordering the three month subscription to see if i noticed a difference, so far nothing has come to my attention. I was unable to figure out where the stipend is accessed. I looked at the FAQ the only reference I located was to it appearing in the balance in the game.

The membership seems to be designed for persons who want more than one character, a lot of accumulated items, or currency.

I love the game but will not continue the membership, I will buy Zen every month encourage Perfect World to keep Star Trek Online active.

Do what you want. If you feel that a silver account is for you then go for it, I'm a gold member because I feel that this game is worth paying $15 a month, I left WOW for this game.

Based on my own experience, all subs are tracked down to the day and they're all based on multiples of 30 days.

You buy 30 days, you get 30 days. Doesn't matter when you cancel.

You buy time in advance for the game. Any game time card or free time your receive just bumps your next billing date ahead the number of days the card/time is for. You can cancel your recurring billing sub and, you'll stay Gold until your next billing date.
