Last chance for 50% G1 Credit Bonus, ends tonight (April 30)!

[Edit: May 2nd at 3:00pm PST: The bonus credit process just completed for all players. You should now have your 50% credit bonus in your account (if you spent credits in Armas during the bonus period). Enjoy!]

Just pointing out that 11:59pm PST April 30 (or 07:59am UK time on May 1) marks the end of the "post 1.7 and tactical gear" 50% G1 credit bonus, where 50% of the G1 credits you spend in the marketplace will be redeposited into your G1 account! So if you have not yet gotten your items from Armas, you should take advantage of the last few hours of the bonus.

We threw the bonus in as another incentive to smooth all the minor issues after the 1.7 major release and to coincide with the tactical gear pack this weekend.

Here is the forum link for the actual details: http://forums.gamersfirst.com/topic/274877-urban-warfare-packs-50-g1c-refund-promotion/

Last time we had a G1 credit bonus was 10 months ago, when the game went from Closed to Open Beta (and at that time it was a 100% bonus!), so chances are that there will not be another credit bonus for quite some time after this one (though we usually try to throw them in once a year or so).

See you in San Paro!

  2. Any ETA on when the 50% will be added to our account (I'm waiting on 1200 G1C myself)

  3. The refund process is scheduled to run tonight. It takes about 48 hours, since we first have to root out all the "farmer" accounts that made purchases with bad credit cards and other dreg like that (spoiling the fun for the rest of us, or at least making things a bit more inconvenient than it really has to be).

  5. Bjorn,

    Are You still reading this topic: http://forums.gamersfirst.com/topic/166272-network-lag-in-game/ ? Seems that a lot of people are getting high pings due to routing issues, myself included. I tried contacting Sonera (Telia) and they could not do anything for this problem.

    1. Its outrageous - its been 10 days now since latency increased 4 times. - That's 10 days paying for premium without being able to play. That's ripping people off!

    2. Yep. Mine went up at some point in February but was high only 3 days. Now it's been high since the 1st of May. Just bought stuff for $80+ :(

    3. Our networking team is working with the telco providers to sort out why some of Telia's routes became incredibly complex recently (sadly these issues are unrelated to our software). In 'theory' our BGP4 announcements with the pre-pending that is happening from our Internap devices, should cause the telcos to then use that data to provide good customer routes. In some select cases that does NOT seem to be happening. We will update the thread as the various providers work to isolate the issue.

    4. Oh ... that actually is a good point. I guess I'll go yell at Bredbandsbolaget now.
