    - They stopped digital sales to guarantee a good experience for those already playing.
    - Refunded for missing headstarts.
    - Were forgiving for exploiters/botters in their first steps in the game to show people that they won't tolerate abuse and they will ramp up on the punishments.

    But still, whine, whine and whine. And the counter arguments get thinner and thinner, really. "That's what they're supposed to do!", "What about a warning that you can't exploit?!", "How about patch notes on the launcher!". Really, fuck that, they have more important issues to deal with.

    "I paid 60 dollars, they should make the game exactly how I want it and should prioritize what I want them to prioritize!"

    Self-centered, spoilt brats.
    What about a warning that it actually is an exploit?
    No one said anything about patch notes on the launcher.
    72 hour suspension is hardly forgiving to those ignorant of it being a bug/exploit.

    None of these counter arguments make anyone self-centered, nor spoiled for that matter. None of this makes them a bad company, just doesn't make them worthy of the praise they have been receiving.

    If, for example, ArenaNet believes that they'll make a loss if they compensate people who couldn't log in during the headstart (if, again, they thought a lot of them would remain just as happy and not complain/not quit/recommend it to others), they wouldn't do it.

    They do it to make money. It's as simple as that.
    Quoting myself because people need to understand this. ArenaNet isn't better than Blizzard. Blizzard isn't better than ArenaNet. They both try to make money.

    That is IT.

    People did say something about patch notes on the launcher, it just wasn't this thread. 72 hours is forgiving for botting, not for ignorance, yet they probably would think twice the next time they see something fishy.

    It doesn't make them a bad company, no. Would it be nice to post something positive on the internet? They really do it a lot better than other gaming companies, yet saying something good about GW2/Anet attracts trolls/depressed emo's like flies to a turd.

    I lol'd. The line about them doing it a lot better than other gaming companies is where the issue lies. They do not, no one company does this better than the last (for those that do engage in this sort of charity). I think they came up with a fun game that I enjoy playing, but there isn't really anything amazing about it (imo).

    They do what they're supposed to do, keep their customers happy, I agree with that. Don't you think some praise from the online community would motivate other companies to do the same? Or do you want to keep getting buttfucked by the other gaming companies?

    If you're going to be bitter about something positive, go do it elsewhere.

    I'm glad to see ArenaNet compensating players. Sad to see the mistakes in the first place, but at least they're doing something to make up for it.

    72 hours suspension is a pretty harsh punishment, but IMO, it's good that they've set an example that bug exploiting will get you banned.

    Also, iirc to get a 72 hour ban, you had to buy at least 40 of these items.That's a lot of items to buy, why would you immediately buy 40 items if you didn't know it was a bug that would get fixed?.

    Wow, that's really nice of them. I doubt many companies would have given more then a "sorry" message.

    All we got from blizzard for the d3 launch fiasco was a retarted open letter from mike, which in the end pissed off more players.

    There are many people who had the issue who are not getting the "upgrade" and what of those who have the DD? There were quite a few I know of who did not get to play for much of Saturday but I don't see anything done about the overall downtime during the head start.

    What about having a gem sale for those who had to watch a whole week go by without the AH? Oh, or does that one not count?

    huh, so tell me... did you get any compensation for not being able to play on release day of d3? i dont think so
    There's a difference, D3 didn't have a version with early special access. Do normal GW2 accounts that can't play (because of login issues for example) get compensated?

    I really wish every thread didnt turn into GW2 vs WoW.

    I PAID for Digital Deluxe and still don't have my Mistfire Wolf (I'm level 65 now...) so idk what's up.

    Dare to criticize this game and you will always get childish remarks like "go back to your Pandas", "no problem, World of Pokemon will be released soon", or "go and kill 10 boars". Nonsense like this can be applied to everything. For instance, GW2 has kitties in it, you cook chilly peppers and gather onions.
    This is true x1000, sad sad.

    On topic, I didn't get any compensation nor have I been expecting it or find it to be the work of angels. I've been refunded by many companies when they've failed to deliver, INCLUDING the company that shall not be named. I don't consider problems on the release day of major content/completely new games to be something I NEED refunds for though.

    Oh, and you forgot that you become a pig and search for truffles for frog men. I loved that quest myself but I don't fool myself into thinking that it's less childish and silly than anything found in other 12+ games.

    I can only imagine a VERY weak person who feels that he/she is getting "buttfucked" by gaming companies...it's not like someone's holding a gun to our heads and FORCING us to play their games.

    The amount of whinging in GW2 /map chat just tells me that some players are self-entitled brats who will never be happy and will never be able to expect issues on launch days. Anet compensating some of them won't do diddly squat, the whinging will continue.

    That feeling when there's a new expansion out and you sit in a Garrison wondering what the hell to do because you are stuck on an entire continent like Timeless Isle, only with flightpaths to encourage afk travel coz "immersion".

    You misinterpreted my post I think. I was talking in extremes because that's the only thing most people here seem to understand.

    Some people do get buttfucked by game companies though, my personal experiences were okay. But others didn't know beforehand they would get buttfucked until the massive dildo was shoved up their ass. My friend couldn't activate his account on Origin for months, that's how rape starts. Seriously.

    I think Anet deserves some praise to show them we appreciate their efforts, that's all I meant with my posts. Negativity is plentiful, it's refreshing to say something nice once and a while.

    But the game wasn't irreparably broken - it was just unplayable for a short while...so comparing a broken fan that needed to be replaced to an online service that was down for a few hours isn't really a very good argument now is it?
