Sorry for any confusion.

Hey Eric,

So does this mean the original plan has been completely scrapped and you're looking for something different, or that the technical issues are still being worked on?

It's about how they handle it. If they said "Yes, we haven't forgotten about the second subscriber appreciation! We're giving every sub 500 more CC!" people would complain. But if they said "We did have something extra planned at the end of the month, but we ran into some technical difficulties we were unable to overcome. We'll be giving subscribers another 500 CC and will be looking for additional was to show appreciation to subscribers"

They're pretty much the same thing, but one shows a lot more thought put into it. So no, I do not believe that more coins would have made people complain if they had approached it right. But at the end of the day, anything is better than nothing, and nothing is what we got. A promise of subscriber apprecation just puts us back at square one.

Soo... What was it?

Is it still the same thing planned, but you're working on the tech? Or is it just scrapped now? Is it something other than Cartel Coins?

Sorry, but the vagueness of your post kinda makes it seem like there weren't anything planned, and this is just a way to salvage the situation. I don't believe that myself, but the post does seem really vague. Just a hint that there might be something some day in the future..

To echo ikinai's own post, yes, I am willing to overlook what you consider shoddy business practices because it is just a computer game.

If you feel so shabbily treated, why do you subscribe?

I'd take a free transfer

glad that they were at least planning something, hope the technical issues get worked out of whatever they do instead is cool.

Cartel coins just add a monetary value to me being a subscriber, and only for being one at the time the CCs were given out. I'd prefer a system that not only rewards being a subscriber right now, but for having been a subscriber for a long time, and for continuing to be one. As a result I'd love to see the long-term plan be a veteran rewards program related to subscriptions.

Bad news is they failed hard and couldn't even do the CC again.

Fail
Why on God's Green Creation would they want to give out more of something that people are STILL crying about?

I personally enjoyed getting 500 cartel coins for free. It wasn't the highlight of my month, but I hadn't expected it to be. *shrug*
