Ok, the latest fuel for the nerd rage fires is the announcement that the Champions Online Life Time sub ran out, fast. According to some, the emails sent to players with the offer didn't have the "limited quantities" wording in them. I don't know, and would love to see one of these emails. Seriosuly..who got one? I would love to link it.
Clearly on the forums they warned of the limited quantities. VERY CLEARLY.
The are questions as to if they warned people, in EVERY communication about the deal, that there were NOT limited quantities, just an end date. I want to find out. Someone on Massivelt said that in their email they just saw "limited quantities" and not a date.
Here's my hunch: they covered their asses. They said both "limited quantities" AND "until Sept. 1st." This is case of "change your oil at 30k miles OR at 3 months, whichever COMES first."
We'll see, though. It's fixed easy enough, just let those few remaining people buy it and eat the cost for any confusion.
Now, dammit, see what I DID? I wasn't going to TYPE today!
EDIT: Someone has just posted a screenie of the offer. http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/8858/emailt.jpg
Limited means in quantity OR date. Whichever comes first. Done and done. Next time, move faster.
