Yep its okay for them to play bait and switch and lie etc.. we will just call it "changing their minds"

Your cell phone provider sells you a phone, you sign a contract. Cell phone provider tells you all future updates are free, update comes out and costs you money.

Would you not care? If so, you're an idiot.

It's much different than some twerp telling mommy he is going to school.

There was no contract in this case.

But keep the personal attacks coming, it is really helping you make your point.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

A game developer says one thing and it doesn't go as planned?

This NEVER happens. Call the cops!

yeah no... cellphones have evolved into somewhat of a necessity. they are not merely a platform of entertainment. things were supposed to be one way, now they're another. it's how life works and if you can't understand that, you're an idiot.

Having a change in plans is not a bait and switch.
