    Default patron time and CE

    Here's hoping that the delay for xpac may be so that trion can change some implementation of the CEs. Namely, please give some patron time for purchase of the CEs.

    Maybe this will be a short thread. Who knows.

    But for everyone out there that has an opinion - please post here. Why would you be in favor of or against the idea of adding patron time to the CEs.

    collector editions never have game time in it unless its the original release of the game. This is true for all major MMO i know of.

    Also, Daglar stated there will be no patron time added to CE's, but there is loyalty.

    For the prices they are charging for these packs, there ought to be Patron time included. Not that the benefits can be fully utilized with the weekly world currency cap.

    If there was patron time included I bet they would have sold far more of that 150 package. I wanted it but couldn't justify the cost. No im not poor and yes I have the money but it has to give me value which the only thing I really wanted was the Port Scion dimension, and im not spending 150 for that.

    Then again with everything going on recently im glad I only bought the 50 one.

    Im starting to think i want a refund for my stupidly expensive CE, i payed 1100 norwegian Kroner.. What was I thinking?!


    Oh right, Rift used to NOT be p2w and used to NOT have a cap on world currency and Rift also used to have PvP gear.

    And, I used to be able to do my daily dungeon bonus for marks. Now you'll find my crying in a warfront.

    Don't know about yours, but *mine* came with a one-year subscription extension...

    Agree but only if the personnel needed have nothing better to do, which is unlikely.

    I already subscribed for NT, and am sort of losing 2 weeks of that time, so suggest instead that all players be given 2 weeks promotional patron benefits straddling the new launch date, and existing subscribers be given a lump of bonus loyalty instead, if adjusting all of the expiration dates is a deal breaker.

    there's something humorous and telling about trion handing out so-called "loyalty" like cheap candy, almost as an afterthought

    The most expensive collectors edition of storm legion included one year extra subscription time and it cost less than the current top Nightmare Tide one does, which only gives you loyalty.

    There was no free month given with SL. So how would you have gotten patron?

    Huh? Not sure what you're trying to say here. When SL came out, it was still the subscription model. There were a couple different CE editions that were on sale before and after the 2.0n release. The one I got came with 12 months of subscription extension. The remaining subscription time I had when the game went F2P (about 8 months IIRC) was converted to Patron time.
