    Is Metal Part II accessible as part of Open Episodes? I'm planning on resubbing after Open Episodes ends. I know that the 2 most recent DLC are traditionally inaccessible, and that still seems to be the case now since it says I'm missing an episode; I'm at a CR of 274 though, so I'm just curious.

    Nice event, but exhausting in the long run!

    the announcement said "all players" so I think its a bug =(

    Real lousy move not making this open to everyone.

    Not a bug? I’m level 293 and can’t get in, so not all players, not all players above 276. Must be some small print restriction too small to see or some future rationalization to be posted here.

    You are acting like things don't ever change. The open episode announcement was made June 3 with the 'Episodes 1-35' specification. When 36 was left out it Mepps had said (somewhere...cant' find the post) that it was because they didn't have the coding in for the 'free/premium' option. It's not unreasonable to think that a bonus week that was launched 4 weeks later for episode 36 that specifically says 'all players' with a 2nd spec of 'combat rating 276 or higher to play' is open to actual all players. It would have been super easy to put in a 3rd spec of 'must be a member or own episode 36 to participate' if that was what the plan was.

    I'd guess it was supposed to be open to all, and it wasn't unlocked for the free/premium players, but as we were going into a holiday weekend, it wasn't corrected. As no Dev has commented on this either way yet, I'd think we'll see something today.

    Personally I was planning on beating the heck out of the duo with my premiums at least, also thinking it was going to be open to 'all', but I've hardly run any on my paid account anyway so no biggie for me. Would probably just have hit the bounties on each toon and maybe did the 4 day Hawkgirl mission to pick up the quick 48 coins.
