For all of you who have pre-ordered Asheron's Call 2, I advise you to cancel your order now, unless you have a US Credit Card. You see, Microsoft is only accepting billing from 9 select countries (United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, and United Kingdom). Everyone else is out of luck. I find this Utterly shocking, especially since this "new system" was only announced 3 days ago, which was about 2 days before the US release.

I'm posting this to
1. Try help everyone who's ordered this unplayable game.
2. Get some publicity onto the issue, which should help get some resolutions.

for more info the billing FAQ is here http://microsoftgamesinsider.com/AC2/Support/billinghelp.htm
Take note of question 6.

And the offical reply on the message boards is here http://www.accmty.com/idealbb/view.asp?topicID=19354&sessionID={60C0EA22-8880-4712-855D-D19CC27ED440}
The offical comment is that they didn't think about it. so they "forgot about over half of their player base". shocking. That's like forgetting to mention that the new office that works by subscription doesnt accept your credit card because you are not an american.

Please post some comments, because the offical thread on the official boards is now locked, due to 29 pages of flames.

Was just reading the response-

"Fact of the matter is - we should have announced this sooner," said Microsoft producer Ken Karl. "As lame as it sounds, we simply did not think of it."


Lame indeed..
