Sony owns Paramount who owns Viacomm who owns CBS

KAG is Klingon Assault Group. Folks who make klingon costumes and wear them to conventions and the like.

Whoops. Viacom owns Paramount and perhaps I was mislead about Sony's involvement, but I was sure I saw that somewhere.

Still, no reason to make your posts feel so condescending. : /

Triple checked myself, I was on the wrong side of the coin. Sony owns Columbia and MGM, not Paramount / Viacom.

Ah well, no big deal. C'est la guerre.

First off, I love the title of the thread.

Now, I don't have a problem with the C-Store in concept. Hell, even Blizzard has an MT store for WoW (although there is NOTHING micro about their transactions). However, things have gotten completely out of hand lately. First we had the massive dumping of pre-order items (half of which still, for some unknown reason, are still "exclusive"). Then there was the inclusion of the Galaxy-X. Now this...and a lot more coming down the pipeline according to the latest Engineering Report.

My biggest problem right now is the per-character crap, especially when they're only rectifying 1/3 of the issue. So, yeah. I don't like where this ship is sailing.

They better change it. At some point you delete a character, then what? You spent the extra money for nothing?

Wow, this takes the concept of throwing money away to a very real level.

That said, I find the concept of per character sales troubling. I would never but anything that wasn't account wide, I don't buy renames or respects or anything consumable already, because I'm cheap. The very idea of non account wide sales could be what brings any support for the c-store to a halt. I feel the only way to stop this from happening is voting with our wallets and boycotting any non consumable item that isn't account wide. A few people raging on the forums won't work to get the attention of the marketing department on this. I say we need a way to organize a concerted effort to boycott these types of items and let cryptic know we are doing it along with how many supporters are involved. All the nerd rage in the world won't get a marketing department to change policy, but loss of projected revenue will.
sooo.....

how many threads you going to post this in ?

Yes, actually. And that is working as intended.

ah he has rights to copy past the same answer over and over on 50 different threads and then still claim 'its only a small number of people' if he wants

after all, when we are all leaving in droves to play starcraft 2, jumpgate evolution or the old republic, hes welcome to still be paying extra for 'per 24 hours' options (as it will end up if it keeps going this way) and spouting "but its how they make money"
