+ - Champions Online Lifetime Offer Pulled

Submitted by Schadrach
Schadrach writes: 6 days before the offer was due to be yanked by their own communications, Cryptic has pulled the lifetime subscription and discounted 6 month subscription offers. This was done after a sudden notice of "We're almost out, grab it if you want it now!" leaving only a few hours to grab one before they ceased offering them. During this time, several people had billing server issues as well. People are understandably upset.

Blessed be those who initiate lively discussions with the hopelessly mute, for they shall be known as Dentists.
