I used to be a month-to-month subscriber in LOTRO 5 years ago, I took a 4-year break from the game (shortly after Moria came out) and just recently returned after hearing about LOTRO becoming a F2P game. I have been enjoying the new contents that came out while I was gone, and when I saw the special sale for Rohan, I couldn't help but grab myself a copy.
But this is when I hit a snag. The purchase went through successfully and I followed the instruction to go to the Turbine website, log in, and entered the activation code for Rohan (my account in on Premium status since I was a former subscriber), but the website just keeps returning the message "You cannot upgrade an account that has been suspended due to non-payment).
Well... I tried clicking the "Resume subscription" link and that immediately took me to a page to enter my payment info and then forced me to choose a payment plan. Well needless to say, I want to remain F2P??
So how exactly am I supposed to activate Rohan on my F2P account when the only way the do is to become a VIP? =_=
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
