MTGO – WTF?!? January 24, 2009Posted by Norm in Casual.
Please look at above photo. Doesn’t it remind you of the first time you used the internet or, if your me, I’m reminded of an old program called Font Navigator. WTF Magic the Gathering Online? This is your help site? Why are you living in the past.
OK let me start by saying I started a MTGO account sometime over the summer. But I don’t have a PC so I did it while visiting my parents… bla bla bla. During this process I didn’t redeem my free $9.99 (which isn’t free, I had to pay $10 for a username or whatever). So now I have access to a PC and I go to redeem my code with high hopes to play some pauper magic, but my code comes back invalid or something. I go to this help menu and it takes me five minutes to find the search menu. I also try to contact one of the live chat people. Didn’t work.
First of all my code should work. I don’t care if it was six months ago. Honestly, I shouldn’t even need a code to get my “free” complementary ten bucks. By the way, most of the stuff in the store cost more than ten dollars.
OK I know MTGO cost money to play. I know how it works. Really not that big of a deal. But when this BS happens it really ticks me off because I’m paying for a service. This shouldn’t be a problem for me to get my code, nor should I find the above help menu that looks like it was made by someone in high school during 1997. Most free services online work better, and don’t look like they were made over ten years ago (ten seems to be a common theme here).
OK rant over, but I’m still pissed.
