Just another sign of the "new regime" sweeping through CCP's corporate mindset... "Good Ideas" (TM) actually happening instead of just being flushed out the airlock. Whodathunkit.

I'd try the support ticket first, assuming you like your Char name lol

Can't imagine the GM's being hardliners on this.. Actually kinda surprised CCP didn't just add the extra time to all existing trial accounts.

Start a second trial with 30 days time as a second account. Transfer any ISK and ships etc from the first account to the second.

This seems like a logical thing to do. But yeah, I imagine if you just message support about this, they will add the time.

Is the buddy program now 45 days?
( I ask rhetorically, naturally)

CCP - Building ant hills and magnifying glasses for fat kids

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Meh. You still get the ability to claim a PLEX and get them an extra month free. 1 PLEX can get your newbro friend 3 months of game time.

A month is enough time for buddy invites. It's more generous than any other subscription based game I've seen anyway.

Overall I think this is a good development. I don't think 14 days is quite enough time for someone to make a decision on whether or not to play the game long-term, considering the amount of depth the game has.

WRT to OP - I'm sure if you petitioned they'd just add the game time to your account.
