Yeah most people forget that there are in fact people working on MMOs consistantly since their release, those people need to be paid. Fair enough SE is a **** rich company already, but why make the game if they can't make a profit too. Some people will sue over anything these days, its pathetic. I've never found SE have 'decieved' me with their monthly payments on FFXI. Maybe thats just me.
So, you'd be fine with it if I came to your house once a month and took $14.95 from you? That's effectively what SE is doing when they are double billing people. They actually have a term for it, its called theft (or in this case fraud).
I'm generally not for sue-happy people. If I were on the jury that awarded the woman that burned herself a million dollars, I would literally have laughed her out of court. Coffee is HOT. If you spill it on yourself you will get BURNED. Common sense says that if you don't want to get burned, don't put something hot where it could fall into your lap. Honestly, I wish the judge had ruled that she go to prison because she was too **** stupid to be out with the rest of the population.
I'd also feel bad for SE if this was a one time thing. It isn't. Its been happening for years. They've known about it for years. The BBB has (allegdedly) contacted them about this many times. So, basically they knowingly have stolen money from people for years on end. Read that again: Knowingly stolen money from people for years. Didn't we sent Bernie Madoff to prison for doing this? Granted, Madoff was much much worse due to the amount of money he stole. But isn't this the exact same principle?
SE has continued to say "It isn't us" "talk to your bank" "Our records don't show anything". If SE isn't willing to do the right thing here, then yeah, people SHOULD sue. SE has had literally years to fix this. They haven't and continue to deny that there is even a problem. That should bother you. That should bother you a lot.
This is one of the few times in my life that I actually agree with the suing party in a class action lawsuit. I hope they win. More importantly, I hope this makes SE fix this. Its a problem, and it needs to be fixed.
