Saving the world... for later

As of the moment this comic was slated in the queue, Cryptic had just agreed to delay a change in the billing system that would have de-facto fired all of its paying customers. Here's the rundown:

Are you a Champions Online subscriber and you just missed a payment for whatever reason? Well, you're SOL, because subscriptions have just been abolished and you can't renew!

Q: What about all my freeform characters?
A: Locked, all of them.

Q: How do I get them back?
A: Either convert them to silver or pay Cryptic a ransom of $200 (the cost of a Life-time subscription)

If you play CO, I'm sure you can see the problem. Also, let's remember Cryptic isn't backpedalling on it, they're just delaying it. Even if they change it, you can be sure it's not going to be to anyone's liking.

This may be the straw that breaks the camel's back. When even your resident sycopanths turn on you, that means you finally crossed the line.

What they did, however, was removing the possibility of account wide costume slot purchase, and the player base probably hasn't noticed yet... let's see what the sycopanths say once they notice.

Peace.
