7 day free trial [CLOSED] so how the bloody hell do i trial it now??


Spent 15 hours+ downloading and getting this friggin game to run just to be told that SOE have stopped all the keys. So how the bloody hell can i demo this game before i buy it?? Or am I expected to just shell out 30 and cross my fingers.

So far i can tell that the game currently has a speed hack that makes people run faster than vehicles, the tutorial will only work for the first mission, there are loads of bugs with the graphics settings and there arnt enough people on the servers. So i am a bit hesitant to buy it seeming as i wont be able to get my money back.

And no i dont know anybody with the game so i can get there trial key. Unless anyone reading this feels genourous.

Hamma, why shell out 30 for a supposedly "free" month trial, and take your chances? 30 for a month trial is a bit steep I think.

Because everyone else had to pay, so should you

You wont get any sympathy from those who shell out money to buy, and pay monthly for this game.

So they suspended the 7 day trials?

That's actually a good thing for a little bit till they get the stupid speed exploit nailed down. Hope they reopen them in a few days so we can get more folks in!

Dont think i asked for sympathy hamma, i was trying to see if anyone was aware of any other ways to trial this game before you have to buy it.

I dont give a monkeys if everyone else decided to take a leap of faith and fork out 30 sods not knowing whether it was any good. I just find it very strange that SOE expect you to do so.

Its just with the amount of problems that seem to be going on with planetside at the moment i am a bit hesitant to buy it without any way of testing it. All ive seen so far is nice graphics and a tutorial where only one mission works!! I mean you wouldnt buy an music album without even having heard one of the tracks, would u??

Having said all that i think the idea behind the game with the amalgamation of mass player FPS with RPG is a first class idea!!

PS Trial isnt suspended, its closed, finished, game over man!!

Blame the cheaters, I'm sure when they/if they fix these exploits trial will return.

You might be able to buy the game and return it if you don't like it. There is going to be no other way to try the game unless you get a buddy-key from someone who bought the game or find a friend who will let you try it.

You can have my trial. That's assuming I didn't give it away already (I'm almost positive I haven't) and that by the time I get home I'll remember posting this.

On a side note, a friend convinced me to go lifting with him yesterday. I think I now know how people who were put on the rack felt Now, to plot my revenge...

I presume by cheaters u mean those who are using this speedhack, actually i blame the abusers of this free trial system cos apparantly they just kept getting more keys when there trial finished.

Something which SOE could have avoided so easily if they thought about it

PS.. U cant return the game, all stores have a no returns policy on MMO's

Cheaters are both the people using the hack and those cheating the trial. Many of the SpeekHack accounts are on Trial installs.

Because everyone else had to pay, so should you
our free play time was beta. how many months of beta did you participate in?

I tested since open beta.

yes it's a testing period, but you'd be lying out your ass if you said it didn't give you a good idea whether or not you'd buy the game.

for all the "testing" we did we still had plenty of opportunities to enjoy the game.

which is why a 7 day free trial is a good idea.

I don't think peolpe are complaining about there being a 7-day trial. I think most of us are all for people getting a 7 day trial. I think what people are slightly annoyed about is the people who were on their 7th or 8th 7 day free trial.
