Better now than never..

Its all over the blogosphere, but here's what Mythic put out today in regards to the billing error that affect many players recently:

Over the past 15 years we have always strived to do what’s best for our players. We are truly sorry, and want to work to make things right and restore our relationship. We hope you will accept this small token of our appreciation for your continued commitment to our games:

For starters all players will earn 100% bonus experience and renown when killing enemies and monsters for two weeks. As well, during this time we’ll be hard at work designing and implementing a special vendor. This vendor will only accept special tokens that will be sent to your mailbox, using these two tokens each of your characters will be able to receive two of the following items:
Bottomless Chaos Black Dye
Bottomless Skull White Dye
Imperial Griffon Mount (Order)
Enslaved Manticore Mount (Destruction)
WAR Tract – earn a free level
Choose from any of these pets – Order: Imperial Hunting Hound or Dwarf Keg Handler; Destruction: Warlord’s Fell Hound or the Goblin Bar-Back.
Change your appearance with any of these illusion items: Skaven Skin Cloak (skaven), Kossar’s Helm (bear), or the Signet of the Cursed Company (skeleton)

Please accept this gesture as a step towards rebuilding our relationship. From all of us at Mythic, we thank you for your time, your commitment, and your trust that helps us to make great games year after year.

It's purely coincidental that I started up the Warhammer Endless Trial and initiated a 1.4gig patch, the same day there is news of Mythic's letter in the herald of the billing fiasco. I've always had an itch to play my White Lion character; it was one of the last characters I played before I deactivated my account since everyone I knew stopped playing. I love the art and concept of the class (melee dps with evolving pet) so much, that I keep a picture as my cell phone wallpaper (along with a squig herder).

I've always loved Warhammer, the game, and Mythic the company; its a great game with it's own unique issues due to it's own attempt at a new player experience (orvr, castle seige mechanic, 24 class balance). Mythic always seemed to have great interest in their community and even though there were great hurdles in the game, the company did and continues to do it's best to show they're trying, taking our feedback and that they're worthy of our hard-earned subscription dollars.

Keep up the good work!
