Kids these days....sheeesh.

They're dragging it out to keep you sub'd. If you could binge everything the first month & then cancel, how's that supposed to make GW more $€£¥?

Nothing stopping people from waiting and subbing when the content is more bingeable.

Me? I like having something to look forward to on a weekly basis.

I strongly suspect they originally planned to have more ready by now but it was disrupted by the pandemic.

End of the day... it costs a pittance. I don't really demand all that much out of $6 a month.

Part of Warhammer+'s subscription is getting the app for free.

However, there's no way to do this. Their instructions tell you to do things you can't because those options aren't there.

Has anyone been able to convert a monthly subscription to the free one (iPhone)?

When I upgraded my app's subscription to the full Warhammer+ sub it just worked for me. I couldn't actually make a Warhammer+ subscription except through upgrading my app.

Did you buy your Warhammer+ subscription through the app then? That's what, $60 so you have to buy it twice. : /

Proper poor effort imo, why big up the service on animation when there's hardly any to show, if it was'nt for that mini i would have have cancelled, £50 through W+ is going to be a lot cheaper than what the scalping scum will be charging for it!

I'll go as far as saying, after being available for just over a month, it is actually unacceptable that already they are struggling to do at least one episode of animation a week.

And as much as some people defend the service for the other parts of the product, it was advertised as if the animation would be the premier and main product.

The Vindicare and voucher is not worth it, going to unsubscribe now.

EDIT: The process of unsubscribing is a bit desperate (on the platforms part), you get asked 3x if you are sure you want to cancel and have the exclusive model thrust onto the screen....

I'd say it's both. Which really is a shame. I really loved the idea of Warhammer animation and I really wanted to like the service, but honestly there's a ton wrong with it. I left a boatload of very constructive feedback during the recent survey in the hope of helping the service become something that is actually good quality.

Now there's a week of (to me) zero content after they are already drip feeding as slow as possible. I'd have stuck with it even at a single measley episode a week, but GW can't even do that. It's a cancel from me.

Well... so far Saturday mornings have been a break from work. Playing some pc games and then watching Angels of Death.
I'd really started to like that show. It didn't seem like it ended... did it? I'm rather peeved that the only thing I've found worthwhile on Warhammer+ seems to have ended. Meh.

I liked the offering thus far, but now even my boundaries are reached. No Hammer & Bolter since launch was a bummer, but no animation at all makes me wonder if the service was a still birth all along. I am subscribed for the year, so GW has time to improve the service, but my patience is spent. If I were on a monthly subscription, I would cancel now.

To say it with Tolkien: The content feels thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.

The pandemic was a year and a half ago. By now, most media companies have adapted for a loooooong time. In the field of animation and game devs, to be precise, the slump was a period of 4-5 months. It's not really an excuse at this stage.

5 to go? Cool. You've just cheered me up. Hopefully it gets back to a weekly schedule after this 'break'. :-)

Buy what twice? I was paying for the Warhammer App, and then Warhammer+ came out, so I went into my iPhone's app subscription settings and flipped "upgrade to Warhammer+".
I wasn't charged twice, didn't buy anything twice, it just took upgraded the subscription.

Without looking back at other posts, I believe others have stated that they even had a refund on a Warhammer App payment once upgrading to +.

I'm certainly not defending them, just expressing that I feel things are not going as they had originally planned. I still don't support the way they have handled it.

At any rate the pandemic is an ongoing thing, not some 'one and done' a year and a half ago where everyone adapted then went straight back to production as usual.

I personally believe they became ultra twitchy in regards to the amount of investment being made, mainly in the animations and not taking any income for it and have launched far too early.

January or even next summer once they have multiple products finished that would fill allow for at least one episode of animation a week.

Ah well, I think they may have shot themselves in the foot as I think many monthly subscribers will unsubscribe now, and I will pick it up for a month summer/christmas 2022 for a decent binge whilst off work.

The "free" (lol) models are doing most of the lifting at this point. It probably bought them a year, GW's customers love them an "exclusive" model even if they didn't know they needed it till they were told it was exclusive.

Is it?

A beer is £4.20 round my way. That’ll last me perhaps 20 minutes, and I get nothing to show for it. That price can go up depending on what you’re drinking, and whereabouts you are. This is why I don’t go drinking in London.

A cinema ticket is £12.00 or so. That’s what, 1.5 to 3 hours of entertainment in a format I can’t immediately rewatch.

I paid £55 for a Shocktoberfest ticket. That’s a good three or four hours, but again not something I can revisit on a whim.

Food wise I can do a couple of decent burgers with £5, more or less.

Sorry, I understand animations are out of GW control since its a third party that does that but why this service did not start with:

A package with Dozens of painting tutorials, Battle reports, lore articles etc? Why 1 per week? Seems to me like GW did not invest themselves in developing content since this is something they have total control.

This is pure speculation of course, but I believe it's because some suit went "people seem to love subscriptions, why don't we have a subscription, Royston?" followed by frantic activity of some poor employees who now had to scramble to prepare or acquire content for the service that was supposed to launch ASAP. The whole thing feels undercooked.

It certainly feels that if there's no original animations it would be a good opportunity to wow people with something more interesting for the vault. Why not put the original Realms of Chaos books up or something?

Because that'd limit profits from selling that thing if/when they reprint it. If it can make a decent profit on it's own, it's no going to be part of this service.

Not to sound funny, but in that case you understand more than GW seems to do. This week's gap doesn't make GW look good no matter what else they might have thrown in (not that they did, but, you know). They either thought a week without animation was fine, which would point to a terrible lack of understanding their customers, or they thought producing enough in advance was not necessary because they expected everything to work flawlessly and they'd produce enough on time for one episode per week, which would be reckless and unrealistic.

I've been wondering if and when this was going to happen. Having a good laugh right now, too.

Next fun thing thing to see: Do they just button down and wait for it to blow over, or do they recognize their blunder and implement improvements (not that those would happen quickly)?

Nehekhara lives! Sort of!
