Got my WAR collector's edition
My Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning collector's edition just arrived, a huge box. There is a book with concept art, a WAR comic, the game, a mouse pad, and two metal Warhammer figurines. I went right to the game and entered the code, although with the CE preorder code one can still play a while before needing a code. But I wanted to see whether it works, and get the CE ingame items as well. Of course the only result of me entering the key was an e-mail telling me that the key wasn't valid. Checking the code under a magnifying glass revealed that one of the Z was actually a 2, but the code was typed in a font in which Z and 2 only differ by 1 pixel. Really, why can't people use fonts where every letter and number looks sufficiently different from the others? On the second try I got it right.
So now I'm good for at least 30 days. Only problem being that I can't find out for how long, nor can I actually subscribe to WAR in Europe. The GOA account site is only as far as absolutely necessary to enter codes. The "My licenses", "My current subscription", and "My billing information" buttons on the account page are still greyed out. First MMO company that *doesn't* want my credit card information even if I'm eager to give it to them.
