You've been able to use other options this whole time, like the Ultimate card. Also, they've had direct billing again for months now. People need to accept some responsibility for their laziness. It takes just a moment to transfer your account.
For the vast majority of "this whole time", all of the "other options" were utterly and completely unacceptable to a large number of us. And by that, I mean that we would have stopped playing.
For a whole whopping two months now, they've had direct billing again. This had nothing to do with laziness, and everything to do with waiting to make sure SE didn't screw things up. I said as much
then, and even suggested that "a couple months" would be the minimum time I would wait to see if things were working out with the new system.
Well, we've had a couple months, and I had no reservations about finally switching. But a little bit more notice, and a "we really mean it this time" would have been nice. Edited, Apr 3rd 2012 12:48pm by VxSote
