Steam players (and only them) apparently can claim an additional free 14 days of premium.

We did get 14 days for free. Some may have gotten 28 days. Is it enough reason to get riled up about? I think not :cap_old:

Why is WG offering these things? Could it be they need more exposure on a big platform like Steam? Maybe the competition from other games on this platform is more apparent and they need to offer some extra now and then?

 

Does the community benefit by feeling slighted at every single opportunity something comes up?

It proves that the statements of WG that :

  •  "there are no differences between the players, regardless of what platform they play on".
  •  comparable offers will be offered to WGC players as well

 

are just hollow shells in the end. Especially given WG's refusal to allow transfer from WGC to steam.

Sure... the Steam players got a slightly better 28-day freebie compared to the 14-day freebie. No monetary involvement whatsoever, just a nice gesture by WG that needs to be turned into a negative thing. We can't let this slide :Smile-angry:

You forgot the free t2 uss Albany that steam players also received in their steam inventory together with a second one to give away to another Steam only wow friend.:Smile_trollface:

 

Edit: the free historical us cdr was given free but only with 3 skillpoints instead of the 10 that you get by paying 1500 doubloons. So with no extra skills that’s worth 25 doubloons..

@MrFingers you should actually rewrite your post and your post title because it is simply not true. You can get the 14 days premium bonus only once, whether you're playing on steam or on stand-alone, or both. The bonus is activated via the news article and the activation only works once. So please stop spreading this misinformation.

 

@MrConway @Crysantos please confirm.

As a steam user I did receive 28 days of premium. 14 days after clicking in game and another 14 after receiving the steam inventory “ voucher” for another 14 days.

 

Not sure if this was intentional but sure not complaining.  But hey, you got 14 days premium, good four you, steam got 28 days, well nice for us. Stop the rage! WG could have given us both nothing!

You see that this is (once again) quite unfair as we can't change our accounts to steam. Noone would use the game center it literally offers no advantage

true, I was invited by my friend to join him in wows but he really pushed me to take the steam option. He could not switch ( loosing progress and premium ships etc.) but I am more and more thankful  for the good advice.

that's not true @MrFingers.

 

I've got 14 days of premium for free, and I'm thankful for the WG nice gesture.

 

In Portugal we've a saying that goes more or less like this.

 

"Don't look a gift horse in the mouth"

 

others got more?

I don't care

I for one am still waiting on an equivalent to the steam summer sale haida bundle.

Good equivalents were promised, bit specifically the haida has definitely not been discounted lately- and certainly not in a pack below the haidas original pricing

Thing is that steam sales tend to be much better, while WG players are actually the original playerbase. Thats twisted. Ive been around since open beta, and i get poorer offers than ppl making new accounts through steam just cause theyre on steam.

.

And we get promised some stuff to make up for it, but that doesnt happen.

I want a haida+2k doubloons for 8,50eu, but that wont happen.

yes, thank you WG for the 14 days.

however, inequitable treatment always feels unfair.

all special treatment given to steam players or twitch followers or whatever never fails to leave a bitter aftertaste.

Try working on this. You'll be less upset about life in general.

Although I am a Steam user, and did receive the 28day bonus, I do feel that non-Steam users are a little hard done by here. I wouldn't complain if they got an additional 14days to make up for the difference. After all why should I get a better gift (for doing nothing) than other players, most who have been here a lot longer and probably have been better WG customers than myself.

Just a thought....I wonder how many of the whiners in this thread complaining about Steam players getting an extra 14 days of premium, have also activated 14 days free premium on their alt accounts. :Smile_sceptic:
