Ooh, a new promotion centering around the Legacy 1.2 update? Grovel, BioWare, GROVEL AT OUR FEET. Let’s see how you did:
Shut up! Just shut up, BioWare. You had me at free tauntaun… you had me at free tauntaun.
Hey, good idea, especially for the rage-quitters who put their money where their mouth is and expected you to deliver on these promises. A full week of free game time, nobody can complain about that.
AND THIRTY DAYS OF FREE GAMETIME FOR ALL! WOW! HOLY CRUD! That’s… awesome… it’s…
…just for level 50s?
Ooh, so close, BioWare. So very very close. And then you just put your foot right into it.
It’s hard to complain about a month of free gametime, especially if you’re on the “have” side of this equation, but as was quickly pointed out to me (if my common sense had failed me as BioWare’s obviously did) that plenty of Day One players don’t have a 50. Whether it be alts, crafting, or what have you, you can’t just assume that all of your loyal players will be 50 by now. It’s not good form. And it smacks of, as a friend put it, sucking up to endgamers while making lower-level players feel like crap.
The forum rage should be good on this. I’ll head over there now.
