You removed them for the Graf Spee mission should you keep up a standard and do it again.

 

If all Bundles came out on the 19th you would make more of a killing than you would by using the staggered method.

They'll make a killing anyway...

 

There are enough unenlightened, stupid and desperate people out there.

 

Or just people who actually need the junk inside those super £100 bundles.

We might need the doubloons and if you get the useless upgrades etc for free you buy them, at least I need doubloons now.

NA - so it was free over there and they let EU players pay for every single one handed out over there? :trollface:

They sold her in three bundles - most expensive first and bare some time later. Was a pretty bad outcry :-)

 

Some ppl tried to defend the money grab like "well it is business and if you don't want to you can wait". But at the end WG apologized and said it was an experiment that turned out to be a bad idea.

 

That is why I was slightly surprised to see the almost exact same thing here now...

 

EDIT: couldn't find the NA thread where WH said it was a failed experiment but MrFingers picked it up on EU as well:

And there was stupid me, thinking WG EU FINALLY got the memo to stop screwing over their community and stop "spoiling" us EU-cashcows... Instead we get this sh*t again. 

How could I be so naive?.

 

Edit: at least all servers seem to get the same BS staggered release crap.

Ah ok. Thanks very much. 

 

While i'm not too bothered by the staggered pricing, because I was going to purchase the ultimate shekel package anyway due to needing some gold and flags anyway, it's quite unfair to everyone else who don't/can't spend that much on items like this.

Well I was willing to splurge 50-60 pounds on Thirsday. Not 100! Well I'll just wait and buy tge basic boat, to be honest I'll wait till later in the year till it's on offer now. I dont need it that badly. The money saved for Thursday can go on something else

I sometimes buy the doubloon+premium packs, usually if there is another premium ship I want that I can buy with the doubloons. I got my Tirpitz and Mutsu this way. I will probably not buy this on principle though, I stopped buying COD games after Activision tried to push the prices up when MW2 came out.

Interesting to see that each bundle also comes with a progressively more experienced captain depending on which bundle you take.

 

I see WG is preparing to milk the everloving cr*p out of the Hood, the baiting game with experienced captains and those new signal flags is stronk!

This is going to backfire. Totaly removes any incentive to do campsign for me, its just a massive money grab

BTW anyone noticed the Alabama is already gone from the shop?

 

They already moved it into the EU tech tree (not on NA or RU, though), so it doesn't need to be in the shop - unless you want to gift it to someone!

It's fair if someone actually needs some of the stuff in the bundles but to deliberately stagger by starting with the most expensive bundle is a cynical, greedy money grab. Nothing less.

 

What stops all bundles being released together other than greed?

 

Yes, you don't "need" the Hood to grind the campaign but there doesn't even seem to be amazing rewards. Bismarck has been power crept out by the reborn Tirptiz now anyway.

 

It's poor WG, very poor. It's why I play your products now and think how can I spend the least as you constantly exploit your customers.

I think all bundles should have been available from the start and maybe make the hood missions on the dates instead like it was with the graf spree.

I thought they would learn form their mistakes. No one likes staged releases but they are still going with them...

 

Wow... you guys are literally asking for a shitstorm. It's not even funny anymore how obvious it is...

 

 

So if somone is a completionist and wanna get all achievments form the bismarck campaign it needs to buy a bundle with stuff he doesn#t need. Wow... Thats like going to a local store where you wanna buy a TV but you only get it if you also buy a CD Player that you doN#t need and a 200x9v battery package that you will never ever need at home....

 

Of course you have to pay more for it afterall...
