Step 1: So we have Clan Battles upcoming, but there is absolutely no information about free skill reset.

Step 2: Give people -60% discount on skill reset with doublons just few days before CB season.

Step 3: $$$ PROFIT $$$

Step 4: Now, that everyone spent his doublons on skill reset, act like the man of people and give it for them for free.

 

WE want OUR doublons back, that WE spent this weekend on skill resets! :cap_rambo:

Usually skill reset for free is given after clan wars. 

And before...

Literally from the patch notes:

 

 

From June 30 through July 6, those who have played at least one Clan Battle will be able to redistribute their commander skill points free of charge.

Exactly, these patch-notes where published today, just after the -60% discount was over.

Everyone knew that CW was right around the corner...

We just didn't have the exact date, which is nothing new.

 

Is it sneaky? Maybe.

Was it your own fault? Definitely.

And that was suprising how?

This is the THIRD season! We have done that twotimes already!

we've had a free skills reset every CB season so far, so why would you assume we wouldn't get it this time?

Never EVER give for granted a gift. The fact you got free stuff in the past doesn't means it will happen again in the future.

Sure it is a tactic but for those who do not play CBs the discount may have been of use.

Who can read has a clear advantage!

Who can read the future has a clear advantage! Since WG made it sure, that these patch-notes are not released sooner than the -60% discount ends.

Since when do they have to disclose with every offer, if there will be a better deal in the future? 

They don't, but giving intentionally -60% on something, that they already plan to give for free is still a cheap trick.

 

Imagine the outcry, if a company like Apple would do something like this.

The CW-reset is only meant for CW, and only people who played CW will receive it.

 

If you made use of the regular reset offer for anything but CW because you couldn't wait (we knew CW was around the corner), you shouldn't complain. 

 

If you used the offer to reset for CW, you should have paid more attention to the former seasons.

The fact you got free stuff in the past doesn't means it will happen again in the future. I know it by experience, especially true for WG products.

 

Skill reset discount for non CW people is very rare (maybe once-twice per year), yet WG somehow managed to put it exactly to the date that can be mixed up with the CW reset. Coincidence, right?

Ok, no more discounts for that forever now. Happy now?

So you didn't take the chance and rather paid for it.

Them not giving a CW-respec would actually cause an outrage btw.

That is what this was: a non-CW respec.

If you did not use it for CW, it was working as intended. Nothing wrong with that to be honest.

Why should they inform you so that you can abuse the CW-respec for something else?

Exactly my problem: I have seen WG doing crap like this countless times, so the assumption that there won't be a free respec was valid. If they would have chosen pretty much any other date for the 60% discount, that would have been a clear message, that relax we will give you the free respec this season too. Instead they chose to intentionally setup this timing, using people's insecurity to create more revenue.

Or they would just skip on the free respecc and this rebate altogether and get even more...

 

The way you're twisting things you could twist anything to be nefarious.

 

/omg this stuff is so much cheaper now in january than it was in december?? omg!!!
