Hi, years ago I payed for charter-license, ended with 10.1, and now want to upgrade to 11.6 + octane 2.
Is it possible?
What contains the charter-license?

Kind regards from Germany

You should email customer support to see how the HardCore membership relates to bundled promos.

Don't buy the lightwave octane bundle because you will lose charter license that gives you future upgrade prices of 395-495usd for lightwave.
Upgrade your lightwave only now then buy octane separately for 586usd. So you still keep the future discount upgrades for lightwave atleast 5 major version was said to be discounted.
I went through the same thing for one of my lightwave license.

If a person buys the Octane bundle, that would be adding a seat. The Charter seat would remain intact.

Talk to a customer service like I did.
Einhorn1001 is in a similar situation as one of my lightwave license which includes a charter membership. Upgrading that will FORFEIT the charter membership and all its benefits that includes discounted price for 4 or 5 major version of lightwave. I forgot how many since Core was discontinued. Newtek doesn't allow promo's to be combined so you can't benefit from both the octane bundle and keep the charter membership discounts. There's more benefits if you're a charter member obviously.
Upgrade for 395 lw 11 + 586 octane = 981 which is cheaper than the bundle. If you're post charter member add 100 for lw 11.

Upgrading lightwave 9 and below or 10 WITHOUT charter membership is fine since there's no membership to lose, hence no discount to lose. Go for the bundle in this case.

Well, I was going off what you said: "buy the LightWave bundle", not upgrade an existing seat using the Octane license bundle. The latter doesn't make any sense if you're Charter. Just took it at face value. Now, I see what you meant.
