This isn't anyone's fault here someone purchased something before it went on sale is all. Buyer beware.
Didn;t say that they were. Just mentioning it since I recall a specific time where something got mislabeled by Cryptic and the player did not get a refund.
Been meaning to mention this. The last time we had a big long thread about this, some said that no MMO pre announces sales. Just weanted to mention that it appears that DCUO has done so on their last two sales.
Yeah, but does DCUO have a dilithium-type store? I think that's part of why PWE refuses to announce sales ahead of time, so people can't cash out early to get more out of their grinding. Conspiracy theory sure, but it's not like PWE actually cares about the Star Trek brand, just oodles of money :tongue:
Yup, you could have bought it 1 minute before the sale and you are still out of luck. If you can resist, hold your purchasing till there is a sale. They are fairly frequent. Either the C-store sales or the Bonus Zen sales.
Oh no, sales are going to continue I'm certain of that (hey ya even get a bundle bonus if you purchase a lot of Zen in one sitting! :smile)
What I tend to do is if I'm really wanting to buy something I wait till the weekend. This way if a sale is going to happen, it'll happen while I'm ready to purchase hehe.

The funny part is with Starbases coming and how that is expected to affect the relative values on the dilithium exchange, the question becomes 'do you buy now at 20% off, or wait and hope your stockpile's value increases more than the higher costs?' Got me pulling my hair out.
