You've got a lot of upset buyers right now Eric...I think you'd be wise to address their concerns and frustrations.
He already stated that these were different and intended to coincide with the event. Why are you fighting for what's already there?

Because he also stated yesterday that the team "heard the concerns" so I was wondering if those concerns were being addressed or simply heard.
All warfare is based on deception 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

I still find it interesting that they embargo this pack with patch 2.8.1, but the other pack won't be embargoed until "somewhere around 2.9"...
Makes it feel like this first embargo was a bit rushed...

Because you all are blowing this WAY out of proportion maybe?

Thanks for the clarification, Eric.

Y'know, If everyone had known from the start that they were for summer event and would be available for a limited time, had more rare armor pieces, and higher unlock costs, I think this pack would have gone over way better.

Sure, people still would have complained about how hard it is to complete sets and how the unlock costs were too high, but I'm sure there are plenty who would still buy the packs even knowing this. I have learned never to underestimate the marketing power of "limited" items -- they can have a powerful draw!

. . . but not if you're sneaky about it. You've got to play it up and advertise the limited-ness as a feature, not surprise people with it. >.<
