Thread: Subscription = all expansions?

  1. #1

    Subscription = all expansions?

    A friend of mine toys with the idea of returning to AO. He quit pre-LoX and is concerned, that he might have to buy the expansion separately.
    So the question is: if you re-subscribe will you have access to all expansions?

    Thanks

    As far as I know, no.

    But earlier in the year they changed some stuff around, so I'm not 100% sure. Odonoptera would know.

    No further significant work is expected to be done on this project going forward.

    Yes I saw that too, but unless it states it obviously I am not sure. It wouldn't be the first "caveat emptor" situation with FC.
    Just wondering if anyone either from FC or any player who had experience could confirm this

    You still have to buy the expansion seperately. That page in the link just shows the content that free players can't access (since obviously, paid players can access all content).

    This is just another way FC screws over old players in favor of new (but nonexistent) players. If you sub from a froob account, you'll get all expansions automatically. If you return with old subscription account you have to buy the missing expansions separately.

    That's the way it was during the summer when a friend of mine who quit before LoX returned. He had to buy LoX separately. And at the same time i got a few e-mails from funcom about a couple of my froob accounts stating that if i subscribe those accounts i'll get all expansions.

    So your comment about donkey balls is just about right

    if he has a froob account and a payed account merged he could pay subsription for froob account and transfer chars to that.
    but it is probably cheaper to just buy the expansion

    When I created a new account this summer I automatically got all the expansions included with the subscription.

    I'd dare say it's a rip off if they don't add LoX automatically to a subscription in light of that.

    Don't you also get gametime when you buy the expansion anyway?
