Dazed and Confused

IRL

Tomorrow marks the opening of the 2nd A Tale in the Desert server. I will be checking that out. In my previous plays of atitd I never got really far and I probably wont this time either, but I figure why not. I’m bored to shit as it is anyway with every other fucking game out there. If anything, UO will fulfill my wants due to it’s increased skill gain, but my bank is fucking full on my main guy, grinding mining/tinkering/smithing/lumberjacking/fletching is not fun for long, and I’m still considered a trial account for 3 more fucking days so I can’t place a house thus opening more places for storing items (and enabling me to play my main character).

I have been playing Pogo. I paid for a month and to be honest, I can play that shit longer than anything else I’ve talked about recently. Probably because it is what my fiance plays and we do it together.

If you remember me having Comcast and it sucking and 5 techs not fixing it which prompted me to switch to the next best thing DSL 1.5mb/down and 367 or some shit up. Well, I finally switched back to Comcast and they fixed the problem that was originally there. So now I have 15mb/down, and 3mb/up, fuck yeah! Too bad I don’t want to do much besides watch a movie before I go to bed and download atitd.

Not the happiest camper atm and it is pretty much because real life feels stupid.

EA RUINS FUCKING EVERYTHING

Oh my fucking god I have never been so fucking pissed in my 10 years of MMO gaming.

Well what’s the problem bonedead?

EA fucking sucks, that’s what.

Okay so I have a trial account to UO right? Right. I want to place a house, oh, trial accounts can’t do that. Okay, that makes sense. I guess I’ll just upgrade my account. So here I am trying to figure out how this works. Okay, there are about 10 fucking versions of UO and apparently you can’t buy them all at once. Good fucking thing! Okay well lets just buy this new Stygian Abyss shit. 39.99 with 1 month subscription included, cool. Oh wait, TRIAL ACCOUNTS CANNOT USE THIS, ONLY BRAND NEW ACCOUNTS. YOU ONLY GET A FREE MONTH IF YOU DON’T TRY THE GAME FIRST. Wow, that is fucking new. Apparently EA knows how to spend their money, hiring the stupidest fucking retards ever (or already employing them and maybe promoting them).

Okay, fine, I will pay 29.99 for the game only and then an additional 13 bucks for 1 month, fuck it. Okay we go to the EA store and are asked to log in. Hmm, my UO account login and password doesn’t work. Okay, let’s try the other store, UOgamecodes. Hey this one lets me log in using my account info, cool beans! Okay let’s try and buy this shit. Error. Your account is less than 30 days old and that means you cannot buy anything from here. Well that doesn’t make any fucking sense. I know, I’ll try the new user one for 39.99, because my account is too new to upgrade, so I must still be considered a new user, right? Nope, can’t buy fucking shit.

So I go back to the EA store website. See near the bottom of the login screen that I may have an old school EA account that isn’t an email address login name. Hey what do you know, I am. Well now my fucking password doesn’t work. Okay, reset that. Log in, decide to look for a bundled package for all the UO titles again, no dice. Find the game, start the buying process. Click submit. Okay, apparently submit now means complete my purchase without confirmation prior to the fact. Cool, let me go run to the bank at 6AM and move some money around. Okay, so now I have a game code to add to my account.

I log in, add the game code to my account, log out, and open the game. I try to place a house. I am still a trial account and I cannot place a fucking house. Seriously, what the fuck? I go back to the account site, look at my games, Stygian Abyss is listed as Not Registered. WHAT THE FUCK? I go to my email, find the code, go back, paste it in, do it alll over again. Okay, log out. Log back in, check to see if it is listed as Registered. It is. Log into the game. Try to place house. DENIED, STILL A TRIAL ACCOUNT.

WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

This is the most bullshit I have ever had to deal with to buy and play an MMO. WHY ISNT THERE A FUCKING BUNDLED PACKAGE? WHY DO I NEED 20 FUCKING ACCOUNTS TO PLAY 10 FUCKING GAMES? WHY DID I JUST SPEND $50.00 TO STILL BE A TRIAL ACCOUNT?

EA I never really had anything against you until now. But now I know just how stupid and shitty you really are. Thanks for attempting to ruin my favorite gaming genre, dickface.
