Its pretty funny, a bunch of people, most not even having jobs, are demanding to be compensated for a game they haven't paid for or don't pay to play. I guess their "time" is very valuable and somehow they are owed.
If the downtime is large enough gold members might get something, f2p members will never get anything. It is very rare for an MMO to give anything in compensation, ever.
i doubt they would respond well to "Demands" but at the same time we shouldnt even have to ASK.. it should be done as a "sorry, we ****ed up" here's a treat !
For sure, I thought they fixed this damn problem... this is the 2nd time this week. Hours of lost time, I paid a **** ton of money to play this game and Cryptic has changed what I paid for so many times, and now when this happens all they tell me is:
"other people are in the game, it doesn't effect everyone, we are working on it, but have no idea how long this is going to take"
They dont seem to care that I have to plan out my play time, and this is incredibly infuriating. Down for a couple ours.... sure, But down for days!!!!!!!!??!!! Every service provider I have ever had has given some sort of compensation for an outage of service of this magnitude, but cryptic doesn't even have a phone number I can call to address compensation with!
I've been playing F2P for a long while (have been with game off and on since beta - more so now it's free!) 2 nights ago, I decided to re-sub for the extra benefits.... Mouse is rapidly moving to cancel button again.
Have had ZERO problems since game went free, I give you some money and this happens!
I've been playing most the night since around 18:30 (UK Time), around 23:00, I decide to have a bit of a play about in PvP C&H - got "Not Responding" during load screen for way too long to be arsed waiting any longer! (was in region of 500 by time I gave up!)
However.... Don't know if this is just coincidence or not, have hit this problem shortly after making purchases of some kind via C-Store. I can't remember previous one, but today I bought the Cat Species playable.
