Submission + - Champions Online Lifetime Offer Pulled

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.
