http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/...m?forum_id=2594Anyone know what this is about?  I have a gut feeling that this is an event leading towards the expansion. . .

Your gut would be correct. In particular have a look at the events calender.

So, after looking things over it seems:

New players and returning players get:

Free ROK, Coupons for the New Exp, Item Packs, ect...

Players that have been here from square one, bought every expansion that came out, and weathered the changes with determination get:

*checks again*

Squat.

No, wait.  Diddly Squat.

Yeeeeeeeah.  Nice.

 Maybe you should check a third time. You missed this from the events calendar.

Gee whiz... wouldn't it be nice if I got free ROK on my other account. Guess I missed out... because I'm an active paying customer... ?

A few players? Why not all the loyal fan base?

Seriously this is ridiculous, i pay and pay and pay and work and pay some more, only to find out i could of gotten all this crap free?

What a gip. I definitely feel slighted.

I dont see why your upset that SOE is finally doing something about getting more ppl playing.  About 6 months ago i had a WoW player come into my work place and since then hes gotten 3 ppl to go to WoW and i cant get one to even check out EQ2.

Perhaps you should check again.  Read the fine print.  As a whole, we're getting...

Squat.

Yes you personally are getting nothing, but your also not getting the point of it either.  There doing all the for new players to boost subsciptions so you have more ppl to play with.  Oh and if you do recruit ppl dont you get up to what 20 months free!!

Ooooh, gee.

I'll consider myself slammed now.

Seriously.

I'm just... shattered.  I'll have to go cry and sulk in a corner now because you're such a big meanie poopiehead for treating a legitimate complaint with utter disdain and contempt.

It's not about "they got something and I don't".  It's about the fundamental principles of customer service.  Do you expand your client base?  Yes.  But you take care of your core group of customers first. 

That was my point.  Too bad you missed it.

Hmm.. I did all that for both EQ and EQ2 from 1999 until Jan of 2008. Most of that time I had a full Station Pass.

So for taking another look and maybe coming back, I get a 16 slot backpack, and an xp potion that does me no good because my main is maxed out.

Cry me a river, or at least a small stream.

Did you miss the free expansion, the coupon for the new expansion, the veteran rewards, and the bonus xp?

So:

"veteran players":

Paid $40 for RoK, Get no coupon for the next one, get no bonus xp.  A *few* of us might get a new title!  Whoopee!

"returning players":

Get RoK (and every other expansion previous to that- let's not forget that, folks.  DoF, KoS, EoF AND RoK are all included here), a coupon for the next expansion, bonus xp, veteran's rewards (despite that the designs are for "veterans&quotSMILEY, and... yeah, the pissant backpack.

So... we paid $40 per expansion.  That's a round total of $160.00 worth right there.

Veterans:   $160.00

Returning Players: $0.00

Does anyone else see a discrepancy here?  I'm just saying, if you're going to do a promo like this, cool- just give the folks who have stuck around a bone to gnaw on too.

You do realize that if they waited until November(when Exp 5 comes out) to come back they would be getting RoK free anyway, right? As for the Coupon for Exp 5 who's to say that Pre-Orders won't get a $5 off coupon from the station store too... they usually do. As for paying for previous Expansions what did you GET for your $160... oh thats right nearly 4 years of game play, what did they get for their $0.00 up until now... NOTHING. Are you also upset that new players who are not part of this program only have to pay $20 for RoK?
