From the start their offer said "Both of these offers are only going to be around until supplies last, so sign up while you still can." They ran out of supplies. They even gave a day notice before they ran out. Sounds fair to me.

The whole way they handled their Lifetime sub has been pretty darn shady from the start. I'm actually not surprised it ended with more shadiness.

Here the complet message:

Limited-Time Subscription Deals!
We're very excited to announce two special subscription packages available for purchase for a limited-time! Both of these offers are only going to be around until supplies last, so sign up while you still can. Below are the details for both the lifetime and 6-month subscription packages.

But this message is just a post in the forum. The "Until supplies last" statement was never seen on all the Web site links or ads. Even the most recent message reminding player that the offer ends soon did not mention a limited supply as seen here:

Well there are many ppl in a 70page+ thread on the forums that disagree, pendending on wish advertisment you looked at you have the information diffrently. Alot of ppl posted link to cryptics own website and advertisment where it is ONLY mentionned till september 1st, and no where you have mention of supplies being limmited... That is where the problem is...

Please check out http://www.massively.com/2009/08/03/champions-online-offering-199-lifetime-sub-access-to-sto-beta/ like many other news outlets the fact that the offer was also limmited in quantities was not always advertise or displayed....

That wall changed adds I think.

There was a billboard in Millennium City that said something like "got toxic waste" or something similar with a hero with a milk/waste moustache
