EA has reached a new level of douchebaggery.
I managed to talk a few my friends into doing the right thing and sitting on their Star Wars: The Old Republic account by not activating them until a month or so down the road when (hopefully) many of the launch bugs will be done away with. Love or hate the game, it's sound advice any MMO vet would give a good friend.
Anyways.... guess what my bud showed me today?
That's right folks. EA is using up his free 30 day time even tho he hasn't activated his account yet. I've never seen a gaming company every try to pull this shit in my life and I'm appalled by it. No wonder EA wants a "you can't sue clause" because this will generate one doozy of a class action if word gets around. He said he even tried calling EA customer support at 650-628-4322 and they told him EA doesn't handle SW:TOR billing support and gave him 855-467-9867 to call in order to reach Bioware directly. It's a dead line asking people to call back later.
Good luck to those of you getting screwed out of time you're entitled to.
