That was a bit confusing, and frankly, stupid the way they put it that way. One would assume that the basic account means you already got the character with it and extra characters would cost an additional 3 bucks a month considering you need a character to actually do anything. I'm talking about the Chart btw, I'm in no way complaining about the sub fee.
But that 6 months deal is the best deal, you're basically only paying 5 months for 6 months worth of playtime. Now, I dunno if I should go and get my CE today (I thought it was the 22nd yesterday) or just wait for the regular edition considering that extra 25 bucks is now almost worth 3 months of playtime and I wasn't sure how good it would be playing with few people in the servers since all I'll probably be trying to do is find a party to level with.
