Blizzard's Billing Bungles
6 Million is apparently enough...
Subscribers set to auto-renew on April 20th-21st weren't charged, according to Ignig.com and the Blizzard support forums, and subsequently couldn't log in to the game. With telephone lines clogged, those forums are starting to look like a PvP server. Except with more gankage. And no zone / level restrictions. Nevermind.
It seems the companyÂs billing system has gone on the blink, causing some accounts to be put in the inactive file since their credit cards canÂt be charged. WhatÂs worse, the customer service lines are so clogged, some players are saying, they canÂt get through to solve the problem.
All of this is adding to the frustration of some players, who are now threatening to cancel their accounts. A post has appeared on WoWÂs forums from company officials explaining the problem and how to fix it.
