possibly there's the one we get for free, the others will probably be available in the cartel shop.

I understand that. That's the issue. Allow the people who want one of the other two to choose themselves, not be forced into a decision from the result of a FACEBOOK fan-poll.

well, facebook is a popular medium, you could vote without having an actual facebook profile, and it was mentioned on this website that there was a vote going on, so if people 'wanted' to, then they could have voted.

I know some people just didn't vote out of stubbornnness

Again, taking the vote to facebook is a poor gesture. All 3 items are ready to be obtained, give the players the choice that they want; why are you needlessly arguing?

no it wasn't it was good marketing strategy its all advertising the game and that its going F2P and putting that information on a website that's had over 171 Million Unique Visitors is the best way to do it

Not arguing, just stating my opinion, and why is it a poor gesture? because it's the most used social network?
when they announced it it was very clear where to go for your vote, if a simple click that takes 5 seconds is too much for people, then they have no right to complain imo.
While I do agree that doing the poll on this website only for registered (subscribed) users would have been better, they still took the better option to use the most used social network instead, which is accessible by everyone.
Besides, we don't know how that cartel shop is going to work, seeing we get coins for free, you'll probably be able to get the 2 other items on the first day, result --> everybody happy
