No, it's not sir. Used to be a standard, but no more. Wanna play 30 days, play your included 30 days of game, and THEN add a payment option if you want to continue.
EA wants to capitalize on stupid players who will forget that they have an active subscription until the end of the free month and then earn easy cash. That's disgusting, but not at all surprising from EA.

put in details, deactivate subscription straight away, whats to forget?

If you have no intention of playing past the first month deactivting it is the first thing you should do after you have got everything else all up and running.

These people are worried enough that they have to put the details in so im sure this isn't too taxing for them.

I forgot to decativate my Amazon Prime subscription. I forgot to deactivate my Love Film subscription. Yes. Lots to forget when reality comes before pixels.

Reply (below): Yeah. So im gonna begin a subscription and then instantly end it. YEAH. SMART THINKING.

So its your own fault then, if you do it right away there is nothing to forget.

100% agree!

I mean sure, I was gonna buy another month anyway, but thats not the point!

"Used to be a standard, but no more. Wanna play 30 days, play your included 30 days of game, and THEN add a payment option if you want to continue. "

I'm sorry...but THIS HAS HAPPENED SINCE EVERQUEST 1. This is done on nearly everything. Netflix? You need a card to set up your free trial. Gamefly? Same thing. MMos to play the 30 days? SAME THING! DAOC, EVE, WoW, EQ, etc.

I really needed to point that out so much, because I'm power-facepalming at people considering this is apparently their first MMO, or since apparently WoW got a free pass at doing this too, despite this is what a lot of people refer to.

Seriously....at this point I question the age range and sanity of people.
