The WAAAAGH-MBULANCE

April 10, 2010

People are understandably upset with Mythic at the moment for what appears to be an error in their billing system that caused people with credit cards attached to their accounts  to be charged multiple times.

While this is a tad bit scary, among other adjectives I could use, Scarybooster pointed out something that may be important for us to think about in a time when our knee-jerk reactions are bound to take effect: it might be the fault of  their billing system, which may not be in Mythic’s hands, but in Electronic Arts’.

While Mythic definitely needs to fix this issue with the utmost haste, I feel for them immensely. They’re trying hard to win a customer base, and then this happens. It’s a shame, really.

Someone get the WAAAAAGH-MBULANCE, because WAR needs some medical attention, stat!

    Oh I was playing and had an active account, but my account wasn’t due again until later in the month….they just wanted me to pay again…and again.

      Oh okay. I’ll go and edit that part then. Thanks for clearing that up. 🙂

    15 times here. Luckily we pay month to month. A guildie pays for six months and was billed 15 times for the six-month rate. He’s not a happy camper.

      Oh goodness. I can scarcely imagine how bad 15 x six month sub would be. 😦
