    I guess EA has a new way of charging for an account... OR it's a new why to make money before the holidays. About $977 bucks worth. Take a peek:

    how many accounts do you have? And generally there should only be one pre-auth per account and nothing charges till the actual charge comes through - but that is crazy.

    Is the money out of your account?! Hopefully it's just "locked" and will be released when the preauthorization is released.

    Makes note to self: Check CC charges more carefully with regard to EA.

    Dam!!! Have you been in touch with the bank/EA about this, what was the response?

    On a side note how do you remove a card from the EA/Mythic account page? I could see option to cancel sub etc, but not to remove my card from file.

    This is what I'm going to do now. I've just signed in and cancelled my subscription and removed my card from the file. I will be using game time cards now.

    It was a battle in the first place getting my card accepted but after reading the original post I'm not sure I trust them! At least until there is an update on the current situation.

    I'm on holiday now so if there was any issue I wouldn't be able to deal with it as easy as if I were at home. Better to be safe than sorry.

    The real question is why are you on the 3 month plan instead of the 6 month?

    Only one of my accounts are on a three month plan. The other 4 are on 6 month. I was debating on closing that particular one. Do you think that's a sign? HA!
