    I just want to be sure I heard it correctly. I might re-sub in mid September.

    Thanks!

    The post says that any account that was active during "August September and October" will get it free. the "and" makes it seem like they meant the account has to have been active the entire 3 months. So If you activated your account in September you would already have missed August, which means the expansion would probably not be free. That's how it sounds to me at least.


    The announcement post:

    "This feature requires the Time of Legends expansion entitlement. This entitlement will be applied for free to all accounts active during August, September, and October 2015."

    I agree the wording is weird, but clearly it's any active account during any of those months.

    I didn't read it that way. I got the idea if you showed up during that window you got it. Not saying your wrong. Now I wonder if I'll get it for free cause EA kicked back my credit card for no reason and I had 2 accounts lapse for a few days. Hmmmm Thanks for getting me paranoid! :p

    YES you get it for free if you resub/open an account in August, September OR October.

    Amazing how the message changes so much just because someone used the word "and" instead of "or" lol.

    Lol my bad, my post originally said I thought it was the account can be active anytime during the three months but then I re-read the announcement and saw that "and" then edited the post to say what it does now. Should have just gone with my gut.

    Hey I don't blame anyone for asking. The interpretation of the statement could play a large roll in how many people actually resub.

    But yes, as long as you activate within this 3 month window, you're good.

    Expansion hasn't been released yet, so I doubt anyone has been flagged.

    The thing with me is this is very cool to be handing out for free. That is *not* the EA way lol. This has the potential to bring some real numbers back to the game. But will they time this with a Steam push? Will it be seriously advertised and promoted? We can only hope.

    One would think if anyone should be really aware of the difference between "and" and "or" it would be programmers...

    Do we know if it will bring an account fully updated? Meaning, if we passed on one, lets say Stygian, would we still have to buy Stygian? I have an account I never upgraded with SA.
