It’s funny how WG doesn’t at least acknowledge that they lied

Fool me once, shame on you.

Fool me twice, shame on me.

Fool me three times, I’m willfully ignorant.

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

A lot changes in two years and when the only argument against black tanks is "I don't want anyone but me having them" well I'm sorry but that's selfish. If wg decides to bring them back due to a large demand then that's their prerogative its doesn't negatively affect anyone who bought them you still have your tanks that you don't play and you still had two years with them to yourself. Demanding compensation and their removable just to placate a desire to be the only one with them is plain selfish. 

 

Boy. I’m sorry to say, but I’m getting a bit tired of your whole ‘look at me being all open minded and accepting’ attitude anyway. But okay, you do you, I guess.. I kinda feel the need to reply though when you start accusing others of being “constantly angry” and “selfish” when all they do is voice their discontent over a promise WG made over and over again and finally decided to break, much in their disadvantage.

 

We get it already, you’re never angry and always have the best interest of humanity in mind. Good. For. You. Now, if you can’t adjust to the viewpoint of people voicing their dismay in a very civil way, with decently worded arguments, may I kindly suggest just not getting involved in a topic?

 

Sorry for that, back on topic: I personally don’t own black tanks and did not buy them now. I am very much in favor of letting people enjoy their ‘luck breaks’ and as such I congratulate people who wanted black tanks and missed out the first time on their new black tanks. I can’t get behind the way WG handled this though. It seems greedy, even condescending towards original owners (an emblem? Really?) and especially in the context of their lackluster communication in general it seems plain stupid on a marketing/image standpoint. It makes me wonder how many times they plan on shooting their own feet...

My answers on the survey were pretty similar, I'm not bothered the Black tanks are back though.

First off, I'm not against WG selling Black tanks, although different ones and ones for the smaller nations (without decent crew trainers) would have been the FAR better and smarter move in my opinion. But, I suppose that would have taken resources away from developing Core Breach.

 

Anyway, my main question is this - Where are all the new Black tanks?

 

WG assured us that they had "no choice" but to bring them back - because of the overwhelming demand for them from newer players and also from collectors.

 

But I've hardly seen any since Tuesday. I would expect to see at least three-a-side if what WG was saying is in any way true.

 

Instead, the only times I've seen even two in a match, is when a platoon of them turns up.

 

So where are they?

 

(And one final thing WG. Even in the close up view, I can hardly see the "special" emblem on my legacy Black tanks... and that's on a 50" 4K TV - I think the chances of anyone else noticing the emblems are pretty remote. Explain to me again how this is anything more that a token gift WG?)

My concern is it seems lately like a money grab “everything must go” before the game goes down. I’ve had lots of fun in this game so if they need money I’ll provide a bit. I got one black tank the Fv 201?? British tank.

OP has been around long enough to know that the "Never will be sold again" was a promise that was never going to be kept.

 

PainGod should have never made statements about WG

never offering/selling the original Founder's Packs tanks or even the Black Tanks again. It was a promise that was never going to be kept.

 

Why?

It's a business

Car dealers do that all the time. Most businesses do. "limited time only" and "this weekend only" sale happen regularly then come out again anyway if demand is high enough. And with this game the supply is digital and basically infinite. 

You don't understand the difference between a "limited edition car" and a "sale".  Why do you bother?

This Black tank thing is one scenario where i do feel sorry for Rai, Max and the other staff who come here. Odds on some anonymous person is marketing made this choice and then the staff here end up taking the flak. For the people who are angry, there's a lesson to be learned here that the original V/IV owners learned a long time ago: WG, as a company, simply can not be trusted and their word means nothing. 

 

Now, that doesn't mean the individual staff shouldn't be trusted. Alot of them do everything they can for us. The company overall though? Got to be very wary. 

If I remember right there were those who predicted this situation. Feels bad. Especially considering how damned ugly they are. Should've kept their word.

 

p.s. is the Black medium any good? the F20 something or other :trollface:


Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.
