With the imminent headstart launch of Rift hovering only moments away, it would only be appropriate that Massively publicizes a Warhammer forum thread highlighting the “Cancel Subscription” button gone missing in the account management section. It’s a sensationalist piece for sure, touting a new patch on a test server for WoW and Mortal Online offering a 14-day trial as the other pieces of Rift resistance. So WAR has the shitty smelling stick once again, which I point graciously to my video reaction upon hearing the news.
To be perfectly fair, this issue is currently resolved.
However, I’d do a backflip to see the root cause analysis (RCA) on this little incident. Particularly if nothing else on the account management page was significantly changed. Surely the staff managing Warhammer can’t possibly be so large as to still have some sort of saboteur mucking up the works at every possible turn can it? Perhaps it’s an EA employee that is all butt-hurt over 1.4 and died in PvP somewhere. Who knows? It’s just another smudge on their reputation, but at this point maybe no one will notice they’re rolling around the mud anyway. Still, this is nothing compared to the billing issues, and it was resolved very quickly. Just not quick enough to avoid Massively getting their hands on it and bringing it to light.
