I bought 48 dubloons today, and i tried to log in to ice...and it says that i dont have the requirements to play on the ocean

Did they change it so you have to be a subscriber now? or is it just bugged?

When I petitioned, Nemesis suggested that I uninstall and reinstall the game from scratch. Evidently the first release today was bugged. If I'm still unable to log in after a reinstall then I should submit a bug report.

Too lazy to reinstall at the moment, but maybe someone else wants to try it.

I lost access right after the first update, but im not sure if thats just because it has been a month since I have last bought dubs or not.

While there was a bug for doublooner access, it should be noted that if no transactions have occurred in the last 30 days, you cannot log into Ice*. Even if you buy 500 doubloons, once 30 days goes by, you don't have any more access. This is because the access check goes by whether or not you have 24+ doubloons purchased in your transaction history.

*At least, that's how it's intended to work, not sure if it's actually working as it should or not.

it hasn't been that way, but perhaps they fixed it now.

It almost seems like there is a switch thrown when the new releases start, and that locks out all the previous doubloon buyers. I'm pretty sure I have enjoyed access beyond 30 days, but if a new release cycle begins and I try to log into Ice to check it out, I'm invariably denied until I buy more doubloons.

But I really haven't kept strict track of my activity so this is just my personal impression.

This seems to be a recurring event. I just bought 42 dubs a few days ago, and after that release Friday i am being told I do not meet the requirements to log on. I was just curious as to if this was happening to anyone else? I have not tried uninstalling/reinstalling but will in just a moment.
