7 day trial for old players to try 1.3

mrputtsmrputts Member UncommonPosts: 271

So I used to play Tor. Got a smuggler to 50, quit for Mass Effect  3. After that I resubbed for a week only to find out the server I was on is now dead.

 

Then there is a trial for people to try 1.3. No active Subscription required. But alas the trial seems to not work. I updated my game. Attempted to log in only to be told there is no active Subscription.

 

I Scour the all mighty interwebs for a little trouble shooting. Could not find anything. I sent a Customer support email to Bioware. Only to recieve an email about the to level 15 trial. When I told them that I was not looking into the to lvl 15 trial. I was looking into the 7 day trial for old players.

 

Now I might be reading or doing something wrong. But to me it seems that there should be a super fucking easy way to get back into the game for this 7 day trial.

 

Tor was fun (while it lasted), but it is not worth jumping through a million hoops just to try a trial that runs from july 10th to the 17th.

 

If anyone has a suggestion please leave it.

 

(and uninstall is not a suggestion.)

    That is odd actually. I got the email for it a couple of days ago and i was able to log right in to it.  There must be some error on their side with it if you aren't able to log in.  

    I would keep trying to get in touch with customer service, not that it's known to be stellar or anything.

    As far as my experience while back, i'll admit that i'm actually kind of happy with it and they might just get a sub from me.  I actually am embarrassed to say such a thing as i have been a staunch hater since February.  The issues i had back then are kind of gone, aside from the linear play, but having a hell of a lot more people around from the merges and that dungeon finder make the game pretty playable.  This was the product they should have launched in my opinion.  I have no idea if i'll stay or not, but it is actually fun for the moment.

    I am logging in just fine, however, if i were you, i would start by logging into your account and move a character one of

    the destination severs, they are pretty crowded now it seems, and then wait 5-10 mins, then try and loging again, at least thats what i did :)

    I haven't played since launch and decided to check it out. Took forever to download, they need trim it down some. Finally got in to the game and I log in to a completely dead server and a completely respecced character. My server was always packed with people, this game really is dead, there's no denying it. I'm not going to bother transferring to a live server, the fact that my old server died so completely tells me everything I would find out on another one about the quality of the game. "TORtanic" indeed.

    The reason your server is dead is because everyone moved to one of the destination servers... which are completely packed by the way. If you have any genuine interest in giving the game another shot, using the free character transfer is pretty much vital. I suspect you don't though...

    Interesting, but why 1.3? If anything 1.4 is going to be the game changer.

    Well I mean 1.2 did make large changes, I never mentioned whether any of the "game changers" being discussed were positive or negative.  It would still make sense to encourage this kind of reactivation/promotion during a more major patch.

    The limitations and restrictions put on free accounts have nothing to do with greed, and everything to do with possible exploitation. I was actually pretty suprised with the leniance of the free trials (in being able to play all class stories specifically up to finishing the origin world & faction capital) which i didnt really expect.

    That's universal for every free trial.  This is not the only one.

    Free global chat or tells/whispers and trading attracts the gold sellers.
