In the past when any of you have created a new account with a key code, have you been forced to pay for a months subscription before receiving the 30 days free that comes with a new account code? I'm talking to a tier 3 support rep and that's what he's telling me to do. To pay before I receive a free month. He told me this is how all MMOs work. Having played MMOs since the year 2000, I can emphatically state that he is full of it but I'd just like to know for fun if anyone's done this. Maybe I've been transported to the twilight zone . Note, I just want to make it clear I know it's standard operating procedure to add a valid credit card to set up the account, but it isn't to be billed for the first month before that initial 30 days expires.
