Being an online game player and figuring maybe some of you are as well I figured I would let you know how trying this game went for me.
I read plenty of negative reviews of it, but having played and loved Skyrim as well as the games that came before it, wanted to give it a shot. I bought it off Amazon and went to install it last night when it arrived.
Began install then went online to create an account as instructed. The install crashed after about 4 hours so I restarted it and this time it completed. Then I logged back in online so I could register the game and the extra I got with it. When I attempted to do that, it told me I was suspended and would not allow me to log in or to play the game. Yep, I never once got to even play it and I'm banned. I was in disbelief but Googled it and apparently that's happened to a lot of people.
If you doubt me, I don't blame you because I would doubt it if it hadn't happened, but that's exactly what happened. I contacted them via email and let them know how ridiculous and insane that is. Just a waste of 38 dollars. It's too bad we can't return software. Well we can but if Amazon has to eat it, that's not right. It's not Amazon that screwed me it's this horrible software company.
Now you might be thinking well can't you appeal and get them to overturn the ban? Maybe I could, but say I do and then they ban me again for no reason - if it happened once what is to say the issue won't happen again? Then I'm paying for a game I was banned from for no reason at all. I did not enter credit card info (thank God!) but it is pay by the month, would you want to give them your credit card info and then let them lock you out when you've done nothing (literally)? I don't. So I don't even want that at this point because after this, how could I possibly trust them?
Just wanted to let people know about this and if you are thinking about trying this game, you might want to think long and hard on that. I threw the thing in the trash and I'm done with it, and I can't even tell you how it is as I never got a chance to try it before I got banned. Yes this is really true. Just a warning to the wise.
