Mythic charged me 10x for the subscription. I have talked to some folks that were charged in excess of 100x. This is the second time this has happened to me, so with my computer being broke and being unable to play, I canceled. I was very fortunate I got paid today and was able to avoid overdraft fees, however it has adversely affected many people in a very serious way and hope this incredible error on Mythic's part has not hurt any of my clan mates. I hope to see you again at some point in a future game HOOOWAH!

Same here and I'll likely cancel. I got it on the low side, 105 dollars and it didn't go into overdraft either. The game was fun, but not worth this kind of hassle. I feel bad for everyone that got it worse than I did.

Good thing I usually use Gametime Cards for that very reason.

Yeah this is a serious issue. I've decided to change over to a prepaid visa to keep this type of thing from affecting credit problems in the future. Sure it costs a few dollars more to get a prepaid, but overall I think its worth it.

Yeah I got billed 12 times. I'll never give my credit card info to Mythic again.

My money has been refunded. It took my girlfriend longer to get hers, but she finally did, and fortunately her bank was top notch about deleting her overdraft charges caused by Mythic's error.

Still, with a few days having passed I've had time to consider. I won't be playing any longer, I'm looking for another game to play right now. I'll probably do like Grub and use only prepaid cards from now on as well. Gaming is supposed to be one of those tiny bills you're happy to pay, not one of the problem causers.

I honestly gave Mythic a chance too. I do blame Mythic, since they chose the vendor that screwed up. It's the way that they handled it that disgusts me, not so much the error itself. People were posting about a little girl missing her birthday party because her dad couldn't afford it, no money for groceries, embarrassing credit card declines at restaurants, etc.

Mythic keeps replying with "Sorry for your inconvenience." Hundreds of dollars isn't an inconvenience. An apology doesn't make me less angry about the situation. In my opinion, and I do operate my own business, from a business perspective they had to turn our frowns upside down. Give us something to make up for the error. A free month of gameplay would be small, but something. More than that would be even better. My girlfriend even joked, after reading a post asking if Mythic would buy a guy a cheeseburger, that they should order everyone a pizza.

The fact that they just said sorry after such a monumental screw up makes me not want to do business with them ever again.

It grieves me to say that I'm planning to terminate my Mythic account as well. I had just reactivated it and had a great time playing with the Clan, and I did not suffer the bogus charges that so many did.

But, after several days of serious thought about it, it really just seems like too big a screwup to ignore. Such a dire mistake calls for dire consequences, so I'm going to cancel my account preemptively.

As I say, I'm sad to do it. I really enjoyed WAR, especially when running with the Clan. Of all the races I've played in many games, the WAR Greenskins are the most fun. It makes me sad to tell them goodbye. But it just seems, relentlessly, to be the right thing to do.

I'm giving age of Conan another chance, but I think I'll use game cards this time...
