So today I'm playing you know enjoying myself and I suddenly get a message that my play time will expire in 30 minutes. I go over and check out my account statues and it says I'm good for another month and sure enough 30 minutes later I'm not kicked from the game, So whats the deal is this a bug for me? Or did I expire at the same time my account was renewed? Should I be worried or should I just ignore it since it didn't kick me out anyway?

Did your subscription renew today? Sometimes that happens when a payment is "pending" on the subscription. The message goes out because the system sees your subscription is about to expire (it technically hasn't been paid for the next month), but the game still allows you to play while the transaction is still in the process of being completed.

Well that makes sense. I don't know if it was to expire today or not but when went over and checked my account page it said Active and is due to renew in February so I guess I'm good?

We have seen a few reports of this issue in the last couple of days, Regio.

I double checked your account and is should be good until 2/23/2011. Additionally, I had someone refresh the account. Restart the game and the message indicating your time has expired should no longer appear.

I've got the same issue going on right now. I'm hoping that it doesn't actually kick me off ...

Please don't do that.

Probably should have started your own thread. :)

Have you double checked in your account management page to see if the game card applied correctly?

A blue alrdy confirmed his issue.

It happens from time to time I think. Depends on when the refresh on the money comes out might be close to the warning timings.
