I just tried again and I am 2014 of 2014, but no all these sackriders will keep telling you to be patient.
What's the alternative? Storming Cryptic's HQ with burning torches and pitchforks to lynch the dev team? Although cathartic to hate filled mindless mobs, I really don't think that'd get the servers up faster. Probably do the opposite. Hmmm. So what else is there to do other then be patient? I KNOW! Flock to the forums and write foul mouthed tirades about how you're not going to take this while you sit back and take it! THAT will show 'em whose boss!
To be honest, there really isn't anything that any of us CAN do except be patient. The alternative is to contact billing and get a refund. Note I said BILLING. Demanding refunds on the forums won't work. Demanding ANYTHING on a forum rarely works. Unless you're demanding to get flamed. I've found that often works like a charm.
