# 1 Cryptics headstart fiasco
01-30-2010, 01:58 PM
So the promotion folks at cryptic decide to promote game by deception. They promote digital downloads, hardboxes and the like with a decent amount of items including head start.

What they fail to tell you is the preorder downloads and items will not be available for download or shipment until the official launch, so what was the point in paying for headstart and the items in the first place cryptic?

Apparently cryptic feels that those ordering and paying extra cash need no explanations for their screw up nor do they need to fix this problem. Instead they type a small post with another announcement that simply states pro order items will be available launch day, after the heaqdstart.

Your business practices are ignorant cryptic.

I wasn't aware that you paid for the Bonuses? I thought those were Bonuses?

And this quote comes from the same sheep that are afraid to address problems and hope others will do it for them.

I guess when you post like you did Varxx without thinking you get that. I will explain it for you since you seem incapable.

You pay extra for bonus items and headstart, and regular price for no bonus items and regular launch day, you get that hero? Need it spelled out a bit clearer?

Possibly you do. I haven't. I'm haven't paid anything for my preorder yet, and when it ships from Amazon I'll pay the same that anyone else ordering it that day would pay. If the retailer you've chosen is charging more for pre-orders than for regular post release purchases you might want to think about who you've decided to do business with.

And having just checked, I'll be paying slightly less for my pre-order than someone who orders it on release day will be paying, as the price has gone up slightly since I placed my pre-order.
