Of all the things I have seen Mythic do in the last couple of months, allowing the 10 day trial to reactivate dormant paid accounts, is truly inspired. It’s a very aggressive move and it’s a no lose situation in my eyes. So what if people try and don’t return, as a company you have lost 10 days worth of electrons, but you have re engaged with a possible client for the future. By allowing them to re use characters, then they can just jump in where they left off. By continuing to do it, then you allow them to keep pace with the changes in the game, always leaving open the possibility of a return.
So my question for GOA is, when is this facility going to hit our fine shores? It’s a no brainer for grabbing old players, hell it may even be here already and I just haven’t realised it. But there is only so much I can do, trying to tempt my friends back. There is a lot angst to overcome with Warhammer and with WoW being more aggressive in their patching cycle, it’s going to need a freebie of this nature to hit the sweet spot.
Obviously there is a 60 day period of inactivity rule on the account prior to using the trial, but it would allow 4 tasters per year and with the role out schedule we are experiencing at this time, that’s a whole world of change in the upcoming year. I am assuming of course, that you can use a trial multiple times. Though I would imagine there is a lockout on reusing a trial membership offer for x days.
