It has to be at least 6 months, as my account has been inactive since early Oct and I don't have a gift sitting in that tab.

I had a break between cata/MoP - way longer than six months ago ;)  

DARN STILL NO FREE TIME  -  DANG U BLIZZ!!1!

It might be that this gift (Or conditions to be eligible) are triggered when the servers reboot (Including login servers?). So if you're on EU, you may have the gift waiting for you in a few hours. I stopped in January myself and haven't received the gift yet either (EU).

Not correct. My GM has been inactive for 2 months and he got the game time today.

Always the same. If you are paying player you are fucked. Why does every company fuck the "loyal" player and only give "new" or not paying members of the community something. This is a fucking joke!

The whole purpose of the free time is to entice people back to the game. That's hardly necessary for current subscribers and totally understandable.

I stopped playing shortly before tomb of sargeras' raid opened, seen a bit of that new isle daily quest tower thing where everybody collaborates, done that chapel dungeon and that's decided to quit.

I received the 7 days free gift.

However, he is not wrong.
Take a look at the advertising of banks e.g. 
A special offer with higher interest rates - only for "new" money, new accounts.
As a customer, you are already with a company - and that's why you are way less interesting then somebody else that the company MAY get as a new customer.

Sometimes it feels like a joke, I am quite with you there. You are with your bank for 20 years. Maybe even with quite some money. (Not millions, but let's say 50 000 or something like that. Sure, that's not much. But it aint nothing either.) And yet everyone who is a new client and who puts maybe 500 bucks into his account is better treated than you are.

Like I said, I understand the logic - why care about somebody who is already your client. 
Nevertheless you definitly get the (correct) impression that you are not appreciated as a client. Which may even leads to looking for a change. (Which - ironically - will make you interesting for the company who didn't care about you for years.)

Well, I stopped playing a little over a year ago right as Nighthold released.  No free week received here yet.

Man, I must have stopped too late.  I stopped mid-tomb and I didn't receive it.


Edit: For those who did receive it, did you have the game installed still? I had uninstalled it.

I cannot find the "Gifts" tab

Never mind. No gifts waiting. Thought my third account might (about 3 years now). May not apply since it is linked to my active account.

Hi Stan I just registered to say thank you for sharing the event that happened in April. Do you know of any future free wow game time giveaways from Blizzard will be? I haven't played in a long time and want to start back but don't have any money right now :(

      We've already taken a look at some previous iterations of AI taking a shot at various WoW-related things, from lore characters in the real world to characters singing, and more recently, story generation and artistic interpretations of expansions. Today we have a lot of images from that last category, as Whittz0r has been poking around the Dream Wombo AI app and entering various WoW raid terms with varying results.
       
      Whittz0r actually went through all of them, expansion by expansion, to see what the AI would cook up. Here are a few I thought looked interesting and you can check out all the rest here.
           
      You can see which elements it picked up on in the Vanilla raids, as it's going more for the generic terms instead of WoW-specific ones, although the insectoid theme of AQ is a pretty good catch.
           
      For the WotLK raids it did manage to get the snowy and Yogg-y themes of Ulduar right, which is a very WoW-thing, and with ICC you can almost imagine having the Frozen Throne there near the top! As for the Eye of Eternity, the image has nothing to do with WoW really, but I thought it was a pretty cool one nonetheless.
           
      The next three picks cover Cata and MoP, as the Firelands do look generic, but tell me you don't see Lord Rhyolith in there! As for MoP, the Throne isn't quite the building it is in-game, but the spiritual vibes work well, and Orgrimmar is looking pretty orc-populated and authentic!
           
      And finally we have a pretty accurate BRF and EN, with a spot-on theme for Ny'alotha!
      Again, you can check a lot more of these over here, with every single raid getting its own image courtesy of Wombo AI and Whittz0r. You should try the app out yourselves and see what you can get with some more specific WoW-related terms! Also, here's two bonuses, with and an interesting take on Castle Nathria and a pretty accurate bonus Yogg-Saron, courtesy of joe_the_insane.

      After a mistake with the Honor calculations in Season of Master Blizzard have now corrected the system and are in the process of changing existing player ranks to the intended levels. 
      PvP Rank (Source)
      6:00 p.m. PST
      At this time, we’re running calculations that will bring Season of Mastery players who have earned Honor to the correct Rank. This may take a little while to complete, and if you aren’t seeing your correct Rank thereafter, logging out and back in may be required.
      As soon as we can, we intend to remove gear from player-characters who do not meet the Rank requirement to have obtained the gear. With that in mind, we advise players who have found themselves in possession of a high Rank piece of gear to not waste any resources on it, such as enchantments.
      Thank you for your patience as we continue to fix this.

      Even though we saw one of Sylvanas' new models, her other 9.2 model remains encrypted in the game files, as of the latest 9.2 PTR build.
      Sylvanas is getting not one but two models in Eternity's End. One of her new models has her wearing prisoner garb and her eyes no longer glow red, which all makes sense. We'll use her knowledge to save Anduin and crack Domination Magic to beat the Jailer, but what about her other model?

      The second model remains encrypted, at this time, which means something's brewing up for the Winrunner, and Blizzard doesn't want us to know until the patch hits live servers. The Sylvanas novel was likely postponed to March 29, 2022, due to spoilers.
      Many new 9.2 sound files that potentially contain juicy spoilers also remain encrypted for now. This week's 9.2 PTR build contained new sound files where Sylvanas reflects on her past.
      Let's see what they have in store for Sylvanas in the final major content update of Shadowlands.

      Blizzard shared some details about the Protection Paladin 4-piece set bonus in 9.2. Currently on the PTR, it's not working properly. They plan on increasing its internal cooldown from 0.1 to 1 second in a future build, and more.
      The Retribution 2-piece set bonus isn't properly working either.
      (Source)
      Hello Paladins,
      We’re looking into reports of the Protection Paladin 4 piece bonus not properly casting Judgment when it should be. The intent of this bonus is that it does cast a real Judgment when it triggers - debuff, Holy Power, and damage. Also worth noting, in a coming build, its internal cooldown will be increased from .1 seconds up to 1 second. This will help keep the bonus’s power from scaling out of control when tanking large numbers of enemies at once, while still rewarding the intuitive behavior of “trying to block as many things as you can.”
      With regards to the Retribution 2 piece, it is a bug that the set’s Seraphim overwrites an active Seraphim. The intent is that it will extend one, so the value of the 2 piece is consistent whether you are running Seraphim or not.

      The latest 9.2 update revealed an interesting new PvP trinket called Gladiator's Echoing Resolve.
      UPDATE: The spell is not a PvP Talent as we originally anticipated, but a new trinket effect.
      The trinket increases the duration of incoming CC effects by 20%. When affected, it protects you from the next spell interruption and CC effect, lasting 30 seconds.
      Gladiator's Echoing Resolve - Duration of incoming crowd control effects increased by 20%. Does not stack with similar effects. When affected, protects from the next spell interruption and crowd control effect, persisting for 30 sec. In earlier builds, we also discovered new Gladiator trinkets with interesting effects that you can check out below.
