PostSubject: Game day! Who's in?   Game day! Who's in? Icon_minitimeTue Jan 22, 2008 12:32 pm

It's Jan 22 at 1030 PM PDT and I'm not getting passed the user login window. After I click on 'login' I get the following message.

"Your account does not have a subscription set up for this game. Please select the Subscribe button below to se up your subscription for this game".

When I click "subscribe" I'm taken to a windows that is completely blank.

Just wondering if anyone is getting in at this time.

Thanks,

Jack

I got the 'NetworkError' message from LaunchPad (the problem mentioned on the offical forums / news) so I haven't been able to get in since yesterday when they shut it down.

Odd that it did so well during beta and pre-launch boarding party, but the whole going live was a cluster mating.

Direct2Drive did send me my Subscription Key though which is a plus.

Sucks its not working properly =/ It makes me feel better that I'm not missing anything important just yet. My local EB games store hasn't received their shipment of PotBS yet. How crazy is that? It's not physically in the store before launch.

I think I may be out of luck.

My understanding is that to get into the game I need the code from my retail box rather than the pre-launch code.

Despite my months ahead pre-order from Amazon.com their website now says they don't expect to ship until January 26.

GRRRRRR! Mad

I hope this doesn't turn out to be the case, but I may be taking an enforced vacation from PotBS for a week or so.

Got in! I had to go to my SoE account and update my credit card information. It didn't take any money out, but it confirmed my data, or something.

Anyway, the game is live and accessible.

Liam, I just got something from Amazon that was predicted by them to be here January 27. I think they haven't removed the Holiday shipping fudge factor from their arrival date calculations.

Don't panic. Stay calm. Read some Patrick O'Brian (http://www.wwnorton.com/POB/pobhome.htm) and put on some Led Zep. (for John Paul-Jones' musical entertainment.

I am reading Far Side of the World at the moment. It's an annual event to read all the Aubrey/Maturin novels. Smile

Yup. I'm SOL too. Ordered from Amazon. Pre-order code is not working in-game. Any other game I have ever pre-ordered has always allowed the pre-order code to work for a week or two after launch. I don't know who they expected to be in today except those smart enough to order from a local store. Ah well, I'll see you all whenever.

I got my code from Direct2Drive ok, but not for some godawful reason, SOE doesn't believe in my credit card. COME ON folks, I have 30 days to play with my purchase. Don't let this stop me from getting into the game...

SOE...*SUCKS*

I'm now on infinite hold with tech support chat.

I had the same problem. One of my cards they just simply did not like, for no reason that I could figure out. I checked and rechecked the numbers and it was correct, but SOE didn't think so. I tried my debit card instead and it went through fine, though I really don't want to use that card long term, but it will work for now.

Yes, the D2D experience was great. I downloaded the 5.2Gb of data in about an hour and was running the game with my pre-boarding key a hour after that.

This morning, D2D emailed me my proper activation key and SOE took it fine.

All-in-all, the online purchase and download experience sounds like it was wicked less problematic than the retail box thing people are going through.

Download-purchase ftw.

I just got home from work, there's an e-mail from D2D that says go to this web page and DownLoad now. I go to that page, log in and it says your key has been mailed to you.

It's not here yet, been about 5 minutes; we'll see.

Now I'm wondering if the old key doesn't work will some or all of my character's information be lost?

UPDATE:
My e-mail came at the 6 minute mark Smile They have you go through and confirm your payment plan.

They were late getting me my key for the pre-boarding thing, but I was plesantly surprised when D2D managed to get me my lauch key before SOE was even ready for me to activate.

All in all, a much better experience I believe than if I had gone the box route and threw in my lot with some delivery service / warehouse.

I usually use digital distribution whenever I can, because frankly I hate going to retail stores (who never have anything I want) or online stores, which don't give me that immediate gratification I so despirately desire.

Well, Amazon.com's customer service response said that I can still cancel my order with them if I like. Therefore, I am going to my local retailer and see if they have a copy. If so, I will buy it and cancel the Amazon order. If it works, you will see me tonight. If not, who knows?

Given that I'd heard of problems with other games ordered from Amazon, AND our local Best Buy doesn't seem to have heard of the idea of taking the pre-order price off the game (and still doesn't have the game on their website!) AND our local game stores are staffed by console-glazed twelve-year olds. . . I ordered online from EBgames. The package arrived two days ago, I plugs in the code today and bobs yer uncle. Get this, they even gave me an automated phone message telling me what the official launch date of the game was and how I couldn't use the code until then, etc. Very strange. But overall, troublefree.

Glad to see so many people in there today. Arriving in there and finding Grenville already contested. . .well, it's definitely game on isn't it!

Bognor is in. Edeor MacGregor should arrive this weekend some time. I ordered a 2nd acct from SOE but used the key code on Bognor so I could start today. Edeor will be from the CD from Amazon -- unfortunately he does not get the preboarding bonus, even though it was a pre-order, and Bognor is not allowed a parrot on each shoulder.

Can I say that SOE's involvement with this game just makes me nervous, no matter how FLabs spins it?

Yrs,

Usually I order from EBgames, but for some reason I went with Amazon this time. Looks like this will be the last. EBgames has always had their act together, and I have always had good luck with them. Glad things worked out for you Deoiridh. ALso thanks for the valuable lesson in online economics. I shall remember it.pirat
