Account age still isn't working right....

    Last month my account apparently hit 131 months, according to the in-game info, so I've been keeping an eye out for when it hits 132 since vet rewards are so near - and something is not working right at all.

    Primarily I play Europa, and on there my main account all the characters show account age as 131 months old, and I have one vet reward pick as yet unused. I made a couple of characters on the same account over on Atlantic a few days ago, and weirdly since Thursday they have been reporting the account as 132 months old - but still with only one reward to pick.... whilst back on Europa it' s still 131 months....

    What's going on, wasn't this all meant to be fixed a few weeks back? :confused: Either the account is 131 months, or 132 months - shouldn't vary depending on which characters are played on which server!

    I am having a simular problem, but I only play on Sonoma. My account is 13 months now and all of my characters except for one (which happens to be my main character) has 705 skill points and I have picked 2 out of my 3 vet rewards. My main character is skill capped at 700 skill points and when I paged a GM about it they said it is because I haven't logged that character in since I hit the 12 months and it would take 7 days from that log in for the skill point cap to increase, except for the fact that I have logged him in several times and he is still at 700. So I repage and say I have logged him in and I get a canned response saying my account is not old enough even though all of my other characters have a 705 cap and I have picked 2 vet rewards.

    Is normal, takes sometimes over 1 week until all chars are the same age.
    Was it really supposed to be fixed? I thought they just rebooted the server so it updates at all?
    :p

    Just to add to the weirdness - on Europa I'm 131 months with one reward unchosen, Atlantic 132 with one reward unchosen, Oceania 132 with 3 rewards unchosen.... all at exactly the same time!

    And it's almost caught up properly - I now have 132 months and 3 reward picks showing for Europa characters - except one, that was created well over 8 years ago, but is still 131 months old and can't use the ethy tool rolleyes:.

    I know, it can be worked around and stuff handed between characters - but really, come on. Account age is an absolute - it should never vary based on which server you happen to play on, or which character you log in with, it's a precise, definite number across that whole account, it being labelled 'account age' should be a clue! I understand complicated, interacting parts of the client and server programming can be tricky, but this could scarcely be simpler.

    Maybe next time I buy gametime, I'll get a variable somewhere in the range 89-91 days - or maybe I should try paying +/- 50 cents on the price listed, and see what happens.....

    There will always be time between updating every character even when working properly.
