Thanks, thats what ill try to do. I just want to make sure I like the game before committing another 20 bucks to it. Im just used to wow, which doesnt require you to pay anything until your free time runs up. And very often I dont like to renew immediately.
WoW requires you to put in a credit card and pick a payment plan when setting up the account too, unless you have a game time card.
As for taxes on the monthly fee... that varies from country and country and state to state in the US. Some US states charge tax on services, but most don't. Not sure which countries charge taxes on services though.
Right, when purchasing my 6 month subscription via paypal, Cryptic have charged me a toke £1.00 My next bill date for the 6 months is 03/05/2010 which I assume to actually be in UK format 05/03/2010 or, roughly 30 days from my activation...
In otherwords, you defina\tely wont get charged for your first month.
