They simply don't care.
I agree. I believe the original coins were a last minute "oh crap, we did say that" gift to begin with. No surprise that they flat out skipped this one too. Subscribers are not valued...CC sales are. They sure as hell wont miss a new pack release because of "technical" issues.
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

To be honest tough this statement by Eric made me laugh hard. I mean if they gave us coins again i'd probably rage a bit about crappy gifts and stuff but this one is so ridiculous that it's actually funny

On another note back in the days before f2p they gave subscribebers once 30 days of extra subscription(don't remember the reason for it tough). Think this would be a much better form of making the subbers feel good.

Yep, that's the bottom line. I, too, feel my subscription is worth it. 500 extra CC? Great, I'll take it. Something else gets canceled? Mildly disappointing (at most), I suppose.

Some people, like the person you were replying to, just are not happy unless they are complaining.

Sorry for any confusion.

I would say you saw the backlash from the lackluster job you did last time and needed to re-evaluate what you know as worth while. Maybe brainstorm longer than 10 seconds this time and you MIGHT come up with something we all like, or feel VALUED from. I mean, you rarely ever see people complain in Guild Wars 2. Try looking to them as an example of QUALITY content and awards.

We have all become aware that if you aren't making money from it on the Cartel market then you wont put much effort into it.

Why not make something like this a surprise. So we don't know about, and we also don't know when you again (bio-)fail.

Just don't tell us!

So we can't be disappointed that often.

I want to see Bruce come to this thread and give another anecdote about how this relates to his wife.

I can see it now!

"I said to my wife that I really appreciate her companionship, and that I planned to get her two gifts to show my affection. The first was gift card for a store she wasn't keen on... The second... Well the shop was closed and it was late so I didn't get her anything else. She was mad... And I didn't learn a lesson."

No thread would be complete without DarthVengeant whining!

I'm pretty sure the last time I saw you crying, you claimed to have canceled your sub. That you were 'quitting the game.' You are what is known as a mole-hill-mountainizer. I do not ever want to see another of your posts. Ignored.
