What this means is that, upon your next billing cycle, you will not be receiving a new grant because you will have already received it as of today."

You dropped the ball again... Then you go ahead and point it out... Then you want to be cheap about it by saying please stay with us but we will NOT give you Cartel Coin next month... Cost you nothing... Worth almost nothing... But you will still be cheap about it... Pathetic... Own up to it and let it go or give some to others too... Its not like there is anything that special in the shop anyway...

Talk about taking cheap to a whole new level... Can't stand people in high paying positions trying to justify their pay-check!
People like you are cheap, not BW. Meditate on that.

It's asinine to complain about getting your freebies early. They could have taken them back along with anything you purchased with them which would be much worse than what they did. And they at least told you what was going on.

You have no basis for complaint.
^ This here!

OP,
You were told that you got CC early....so guess what? You won't get a stiped next time....because you already got it!

I was thinking the exact same thing.

You are missunderstanding the OP, he got his CC early and is angry they wont effectively giving double the CC he's supposed to.
Personally I think Bw man'd up and admitted their mistake, sending an email out.. ironicly to prevent people from whining.

BUT Thank you OP, bioware not giving you double CC is them being cheap. Thank you for puttting us straight.

Bioware: Whoops we accidentally added a months worth of extra CCs
OP: WHAT?
Bioware: Well, just consider it an advance
OP: so what will i get next month?
Bioware: it's technically already with you, you already got it
OP: NO WAY! I DEMAND MORE CARTEL COINS!

amazing

OP is way wrong by a long shot, but I also thing it's dumb to turn a thread into a political flame war. Video game opinions have nothing to do with political affiliation, people.
CE fancypants.

Man this guy is hilarious.

They did make a mistake but the OP loses nothing.

Nothing.

Nothing is lost. OP has had no losses.

Stop being cheap BW.


Oh and he's referring to "The War Z" beta game codes that were issued. They messed up and insteadof revoking them, which would be a huge pain, they just said "keep them, give them to your friends" Not exactly what happened here bt if your self-entitled they sure do seem similar.

OP should ask mommy and daddy where money comes from and how often people give them extra money for free. Maybe they can explain it in a way he'll understand.

Or maybe they'll give him an "advance" on his allowance so he'll go away.

Oh wait...

The absurd level of self-importance, self-entitlement and "Me!"-ism reaches new heights here every day.
