Originally posted by RjdgIf I buy both the 'city of...' games and use the upgrade version to play both for one payment, will I then get 2 months of free play (one fron coh and one from cov) or one for the first game I activate?Cheers
I had purchased CoH when it first came out, but soon cancelled my subscription. Now that I bought CoV, I upgraded the account using CoV's CD key and the free month was included.
From the official FAQ:"If I already have City of Heroes or want to reactivate my City of Heroes account, will I still get the first month of included time when I purchase City of Villains?
Yes, the included time from your City of Villains purchase can be applied when reactivating your existing City of Heroes account as long as you use the UPGRADE button to apply the City of Villains serial code. "
Currently playing: * City of Heroes: Deggial, Assault Rifle/Devices Blaster. Server: Defiant. * City of Villains: Snakeroot, Plant/Thorns Dominator. Server: Defiant.
I will say outright that I don't know.
However, based on the difficulties PlayNC account management has had with AA beta, preorder, and 24/7 beta keys stacking -- I'm guessing the odds are against you.
The Safest thing to do is register one key, play one alone for its free month, then reg the second key.You'd then get two straight months free -- as long as you're willing to restrict yourself to one side of the conflict for a month.
My inclination would be to reg the CoV key (can start playing with bases and all) and then the CoH key.
From a legal standpoint it should, phone support will fix it if it doesn't.(Even with the free months it will still show a billing date of one month away, even if it stacks.Would only know for sure that it didn't stack when your card gets charged erroneously, after only one month free.)
As always the only way to get a guaranteed correct answer is to contact them (1-512-225-6359Mon-Sat 1pm to 9pm Centralor [email protected] ), but I hope this helped at least a little.
Thanks alot for the response guys, I bought the deluxe edition of CoH two days ago at a game discount and will buy the collector's of CoV when I get my paycheck next month.
Nonetheless I will sort things out with NCsoft, doing it via mail since I live all the way in Holland (think of the phone bill!).
Anyhoo, I got another question:
Where or when can I apply/see the special items that the deluxe box gives me. On my first two characters (wich I've deleted) appered the message 'obtained V.I.P. badge' but I didn't see it nor did I get the message on my new character. And I heard something about a cape you get when hitting level 20? How does this work?
You should get the VIP badge every time you log ina new character on that account
You should have an "extra" power slide power on your power tab that you can use instead of spint for every character too.
At 20 you get a mission to get a cape like every other hero. In your choices of capes you will have one that other dont (at least those that dont hav ethe speical edition). I think it is just one type of cape.
This will also give you a special badge in City of Villains too when you log in.

Ok, thanks for the info.Could you please tell me what the badge looks like, cause I don't seem to have seen it yet.
In your nav bar (at the top-center of the screen, with the compass) is a series of window links (map, chat, etc) Far right is Badges.
This opens a window showing all the badges you've earned.VIP is considered an "Accolade" type badge
