    :p Odd o_O?'

    :oops:example:confused:SeedInvest;
    You will need to cancel your investment and make a new one. You can cancel your investment on your portfolio:
    Please let me know if you need anything else.
    Best,
    AnMaree


    They had me withdraw the entire amount, which then cost me additional fees :( I went through many messages to and many from them over this issue before accepting what they kept telling me :(
    It could be possible that not all their agents have the same policies? (not likely, but possibly just wrong in their information) There were 3 that responded to my requests and 2 by e-mail o_O~Time Lord~

    Here's what I got back from them when I decided to increase mine. ...

    Maybe they were assuming it was only a reservation at the time?

    :) Thanks for sharing this with everyone @Ravalox Darkshire , I think it should help all our others here who have yet to increase their amount :)
    After completing my own, I didn't really mind that much because I had the total funds available and the added fees were only enough to have bought lunch for one of them at the office at US prices :p
    Yet I didn't tell my significant other about it, because those fees could have bought a family of 20 a full meal here in Thailand :confused::D~TL~

    that seems to be a contradiction of what I was told:

    "It would indeed show up as two separate investments. However, we can let the company know, and they'd be more than willing to count you for the XX investment perk. Let us know once you've made the subsequent ZZ investment, and we'll let the company know.

    ah

    Thanks!
    Connie"



    Edit

    @Ravalox Darkshire ah yes, this could explain it

    @Time Lord

    Bummer on the dinner.. ya.. good idea not telling "the boss"!.

    It's just how things are done...some people only know how to function inside the box. Others just get **** done.. later on they'll ask something like "box? umm what box? you mean there was a box? How come nobody gave me one?

    :)

    Sorry Richard but am totaly out.

    It was supposed to be UO successor.

    The lure was great !

    SotA will move on to history as being the biggest P2W in MMO history.

    Biggest P2W? I'll vote for Star Trek Online. :D

    Edit: Second place goes to Lord of the Rings Online. Third place goes to Star Wars the Old Republic. And they don't even have SeedInvest!

    With respect sir, it was never supposed to be another UO. It was a spiritual successor to both UO and the Ultima series. If you buy a new book by George R R Martin, you may not get a story about Westeros and the game of thrones. But if you like his writing style and ability to tell a story you should find much to enjoy

    Similarly with Shroud. I see so much that is characteristically "Richard Garriott", and the style is reminiscent of both great games

    To me, that is what was promised, and they have delivered. I'm sorry that you are disappointed, maybe if you can change your focus you can accept and love the game for what it is

    And I don't agree that the game is P2W - all the digital fluff I received from my investment hasn't helped me one bit in exploration, PvE or PVP.

    299.000...
    This decline comes at a very unfortunate time. Richard telling that there is more money in the funnel that will show up soon but what is shown is a decline... This doesn't exactly inspire trust...

    they see the hundreds even thousands of dollars worth of add-on store items like the bundles and in their minds it immediately register as PAY2WIN... when you don't actually WIN anything...

    okay... so I bought the Pristine Gothic House from the Add-On store for $100 USD... can someone tell me what I won from buying it? NOTHING... :D

    ...the house didn't make my Avatar invincible or immortal... LOL

    Just a note in case someone else wants to increase his investment too:
    If you invest again it is not an increase, but a new investment.
    In order to get the higher perk I have asked for support and got the following reply:
    You can either cancel both investments and make a new larger investment, or keep them separate and we will inform the company to honor your perk as an aggregate amount.
    Due to huge transaction fees I will go with the later.
