That was the email I received from CCP earlier today, with an offer to return for free for 14 days.
It’s been almost 3 months since I’ve been subscribed to an MMO. Prior to that, I was subscribed to at least one since March ’99. As much as I’ve enjoyed my three months of non-MMO gaming, I itch for a world that persists.
CCP caught me at a weak moment. I’m downloading the Empyrean Age client now, and I’ll do a couple weeks of free flying, and probably re-sub until Warhammer is released. If I don’t feel the magic in 14 days, and I decide not to re-subscribe, at least I can set a level V skill on the last day of the trial and squeeze a free month of training past the end of my trial date :)
