For the attention of WG administration:-

A year consists of 365 days (366 every leap-year).
A circle is made up of 360 degrees.

Therefore 360 days of Premium does not equate to "A Year At Sea".

I'll have my other five days, thank you very much.

So, you didn't notice the great big shiny gold '360' before you bought it, then?

You got exactly what was promised you.

And this is a new thing?  I have only been here since Open Beta, so I may be wrong...but hasn't a year of premium time always been rounded to 360 days around here?  Isn't it the same for World of Tanks?  And World of Warplanes?  It goes on sale for 50% off...and THAT is when you decide to complain about this detail?

Some people aren't happy unless they are getting their whinge on...

Don't leap to conclusions, Lert. I never said that I was mislead by the reference to 360 days.

What I did say is that "A Year At Sea" (as WG have worded it) is NOT 360 days. It's 365 days, minimum.

Therefore that's false advertising.
WG should change the wording (suggestion) to "Almost-But-Not-Quite A Year At Sea".

True....and some people aren't happy with something being advertised wrongly.

If your computer seller offered you "A Year's Warranty" at 50% off regular pricing, and then said that it only covered 360 of those 365 days, would you shut up or would you whine about it?

OP has it down to a science.  I've not actually seen a non-whine thread from him...

I’m sure he will find something wrong with that one too. 

Of course, I'm also waiting for him to call us 'WG shills' or something similar...

lots of institutions etc use 30 day months for billing, which comes out at 360 days for 12 months, which is nothing new.

I've been accused several times of working as an "agent" for WG. All I can say is, that if I am, they owe me a bunch of back pay.

One of the toughest lessons in life to learn is to be observant and, if you aren't, then take your licks like a man. Yesterday, I failed to be observant enough and mistakenly acid-etched off the anti-reflective coating from the wrong pair of eyeglasses. Oh well, the coating would have had to be removed sometime anyway as it scratches up in a few months. I was really ticked at myself for a few minutes but then told myself to "suck it up" and deal with it.

You want to give me a link to that one, big boy?
Let me check it out and then I'll decide if it's worth bleating about.

When you buy with doubloons it says "12 months". 

EDIT: they probably didn't realize that they were conflating 12 months and 360 days. I don't think that this is a "gotcha!" moment that WG will make good on.

Your premium doesn't cover the 5 days liberty you receive at various ports.

The "year at sea" refers to how long it is between leaving and returning to your home port... :Smile_trollface:
