Just like that, we suddenly understand some peoples’ stern distaste for subscription-based MMOs. A recent bug in the Warhammer Online billing system charged some players its $14.99 monthly fee dozens of times on their monthly due dates. The amount of the overcharge differs from user to user — reports on this forum thread average between $200 and $500. One player, who claimed to be repeatedly charged for a $77.94 six-month subscription, was hit with fees totaling $1013.12.

This is why you should NEVER let a third party pull money from your bank account.  They make credit cards for situations just like this!

  1. I’ve had that happen. My ISP charged me my monthly charge 12 times (A year’s worth); needless to say I had several overdraft charges that I had to get removed. That was a pain in the ass to straighten out.
