12-Month All Access is $72 for a Limited Time

Written by Cyliena on . Posted in EQ2, General

From EverQuest2.com:

Ready to add another year of membership perks to your account? NOW is the time! Beginning at 9:00AM PT on Thursday, August 25, 2016 the 12-Month All Access Membership will be available for only $71.99 USD* (regular price = $119.88 USD). That works out to less than $6.00/month!

Benefits of the 12-Month All Access Membership include:

  • Premium benefits in EverQuest, EverQuest II, PlanetSide 2 (PC), and DC Universe Online (PC)
  • 10% off Marketplace purchases
  • 500 Daybreak Cash Reward to claim each month
  • Special membership offers and promotions throughout the year

For full benefits, visit our All Access page.

This special price is available for a limited time only! Want to get your hands on this great deal? Make sure you purchase the 12-Month All Access Membership by 11:59PM PT on Monday, August 29, 2016!

*Sale/Promotional rates will renew at the standard rate. The standard rate will automatically renew for successive 12-month terms until cancelled.

Here’s how to get the rate:

  • Login to account management, choose membership info.
  • Click “upgrade membership” (even if you’re already a 12-month subscriber).
    • 12-month subscribers are seeing that their account will renew at the promo rate on their auto-renew day, even if it doesn’t fall within the promotional dates. This is likely just a display error.
    • If you want the rate, get it before 11:59pm PT on August 29th.
  • Choose the promo rate, enter card info, and complete the sale.

This is how the promotion is applied:

  • Your card will be charged the $71.99 immediately.
  • Your subscription will have +12 months added to it.
    • For example, my subscription previously had a renew date of 4/3/2017. It now has a renew date of 4/3/2018.
    • Any previously paid time and promotional paid time display as “pre-paid time” in membership info.
    • As mentioned above, your membership will not renew at the discounted rate in the future, despite what account management says.

Hopefully that clears up the confusion we’ve been seeing on the chat channels!

    Even though I’m personally worried about the future of this game and company this is almost too good to pass up. I’ve been subbing one month at a time sporadically (as in 2-3 months a year). While this will cost me more within a year I’ll also have full membership the entire year. I’ll most likely buy it but plan to sleep on it.

    Will take advantage of this for at least one account. The $71.99 for 12 months is a deal, considering the regular price for 6 months is $71.94.

    I wonder if Daybreak Games fiscal year begins on September 1st? This surge of payments boosts the revenue line item for end of year. Or even the end of the third quarter will show this likely revenue increase.

    For a private company that only matters, when a company has to show profitability to it’s overseers/investors. I.E. ‘don’t shut us down we’re making money’; win win for everyone.

    Or when you’re showing (inflated) revenue figures to a prospective buyer.

    “1. Accelerating Revenues
    One way to accelerate revenue is booking lump-sum payment as current sales when services will be provided over a number of years. For example, a software service provider receives upfront payment for a four-year service contract but records the full payment as sales of only the period that the payment is received.”

    Or even months …

    one of mi guildies ask : Question is : “what happens if I renewed my account in June ?”

    I hope this will extend his subscription as much time :) but you are right it would be a pity not to use this offer

    According to what I read, it adds another year to your membership.

    so if your membership is due june 2017, then adding this will push it to June 2018.

    Daybreak has made this offer almost too sweet to pass up. And it certainly does put money in their hands today which does make me think what is the specific driving motivation for this financial move.

    But in the back of my mind – there is always the pessimistic thought “Will still be running through the entire run of the extension to my subscription that I am adding.

    Given the fact that they could close the door to any given title on any given day, there is a bit of risk as customers as we re-up. If I have read the fine print on the agreement, there is no refunds on pre-paid subscriptions including even if they shutdown your favorite and perhaps only played title.

    Just something to think about – but – to be fair I’m still going to pull the trigger on this offer – it is too good to pass up even with the risk…

    Think this is a coincidence that you have to do this by the end of the month? Nope. It’s the end of the quarter, and DBG has numbers to report to their shareholders/bosses.

    That being said, absolutely take advantage of it! The more money this game is making, the longer it will last and the more attention it will get.

      August 29, 2016 – End of Sale
      August 30, 2016 – Legion Launch

      Pretty obvious when you put it down on paper what the due date is really is all about. It’s just EQ2 fighting back and good for them!

    Legion coming out on the 30th may be part of the reason for this sale as well. Either way, it’s a good deal.

      Agree it’s most likely Legion. All games are doing something right now to keep our attention, in this case keep us subbed.

    The question you need to ask yourself is whether you want to throw away $71.99. Simple as that. It is entirely possible that they could shut it down on Sept 1 after raking in all the money.

    Regardless of the ethics of the EQ2 staff, and I think they are all fine and upstanding people, the company is owned and run by some unknown entity who has been reported to have less-than-stellar ethics. If they pull the plug at any time, you are out that money. It is as simple as that.

    If they do shut it down in Sept, you could always contact your credit card company and try to reverse the charges (claiming fraud). That might be fun…

      Given that there is an expansion due to come out in fall in which several man-years have already been invested, EQ2 is still making money and in the past they have announced game closures several months in advance, I think this is extremely unlikely. They’d be throwing away money. If they close, the game, it will either be in spring (of any year) or after active development has ceased for quite some time.

        The time to watch will be after the expansion. For the first time in SOE’s history, the game teams are looped in on sales numbers, what’s selling on the Marketplace and what’s not. The sales of the expansion will be a key data point.

        There is currently *NOT* an expansion scheduled.
        Will we get one? More than likely. But, not one currently scheduled.

          There is certainly one scheduled, but not announced yet. Devs have stated they are working on the next expansion, plus our host Feldon who has good contacts to some devs has teased the next expansion will be EPIC.

            This is why I’m here I’ve not heard anything about an expansion? So no one else has either. It’s pretty much a cash cow for them so there probably is one.
            This whole super deal is the coming of Legion, of any mmo out there EQ2 is the one that probably suffers the most due to wow. wow was created from the EQ mold.
            wow has plagued EQ2 since launch, and you can bet this legion will have an impact on the playerbase once again, but by having people locked into a year, after their McDonald’s craving is over with legion, they have a decent place to come back for a proper healthy meal.

            There is absolutely an expansion coming. A producer’s letter is coming soon. We’ll be having a live cast to announce it right before pre-sales start. The name has been finalized, key art is almost done. We’ve got 3 new box features that are awesome. Beta will start some time in October.

            You have chosen to be blissfully unaware of something that has been mentioned several times. I’m not quite sure how that negates anyone else’s knowledge of it. So if you forget how to drive a car, does that mean that everyone else on earth will also forget? How far does your superpower reach?

            Yea i guess i could have read a little more thoroughly. :smile: It wasn’t that i doubted there would be one, was more in we have not heard any info about it, yet. Feldon, remember us mere mortals don’t have the supreme beings feeding us info way in advance, we are oblivious until firm details are made public. And thanks Kander for the response appreciate it, Looking forward to it!

    Having already invested a lot of money in the game and wanting to see the game continue I almost cannot resist the value of grabbing this deal on at least one of my accounts. I think the risk of not taking this deal could potentially be greater. Loosing all I’ve invested both money and time.
    I really do love this game. Having tried many other games we really are spoiled here with everything this game has to offer.
    And the community…really the best of the gaming world.
    I’d miss this if it were gone.

      I’m completely wrapped in the IoR server so no pay no play for me, i took the deal right after i subbed for 3 months, now I’m subbed till pretty much 2018. I kinda like it. I usually go month for month as if i stop playing i cancel then re-sub when i return but, it’s a heck of a deal.

    I took advantage of it. One of my accounts was due Sept. 1 so this was great timing. The other account was due in October but it added this to that time.
    I’m thinking about making my silver account all access too. Haven’t decided yet but it might be worth it to me.

    I wonder, if you purchase this 12month block and immediately cancel, will you retain all-access for the full period and avoid the automatic resub? I know a lot of companies hinge some expectation that forgotten automatic renewals will generate some revenue too, and some people will not pursue refunding if they no longer play.

      Yes!

      Check your next sub renewal date, you’re paid up until then. It’s prepaid time, you have paid for it. Canceling the auto renew will have zero impact on that date.

        Didn’t there used to be the catch that you only get your 500 DBC while you have an uncancelled subscription? Has that been changed?

          Really? that’s pretty low, I’d hope not.
