... These strategies are infuriating.

After 3 years of not playing, I come back...

You announce the Solaris 7 Deals two weeks ago, on April 27th, so I buy some MC/Cbill gift packages for myself so I can try some new 'mechs...

Then you announce the Solaris 7 Deals AGAIN the following week, but this time I wouldn't have had to gift to myself for the deal I wanted, and I could have just bought the MC/Cbill packages for myself...

Then there were also some Heros that were discounted, AFTER I had just bought two of them; had I known the next day you were going to discount some of them, my choices would have been different...

And, NOW you announce a bunch of mechs are 40% OFF, after I just got done buying 3 Annihilators with the CBills that I just bought the MC/Cbill gift packages for in the first week, AAAAAAND, I would've gotten bonus MC?!

I've been discouraged from putting anymore money into the game once again... so irritated... I feel stupid.

Hmm... Maybe I'm crazy, but Hero Mechs would be more attractive at 50% Off on their (MC) Price, if you want people to purchase them... However, I'll definitely be looking into all the (C-Bill) Mechs, seeing as 40% Off is a good price for them compared to their usual. :huh:

@Leidulfr
Contact support, they are great and can usually help you out if you bought stuff just before a certain sale :)

... These strategies are infuriating.

After 3 years of not playing, I come back...

You announce the Solaris 7 Deals two weeks ago, on April 27th, so I buy some MC/Cbill gift packages for myself so I can try some new 'mechs...

Then you announce the Solaris 7 Deals AGAIN the following week, but this time I wouldn't have had to gift to myself for the deal I wanted, and I could have just bought the MC/Cbill packages for myself...

Then there were also some Heros that were discounted, AFTER I had just bought two of them; had I known the next day you were going to discount some of them, my choices would have been different...

And, NOW you announce a bunch of mechs are 40% OFF, after I just got done buying 3 Annihilators with the CBills that I just bought the MC/Cbill gift packages for in the first week, AAAAAAND, I would've gotten bonus MC?!

I've been discouraged from putting anymore money into the game once again... so irritated... I feel stupid.

m8? have you contacted customer support? those guys do some amazing things when you take the time to ask nicely :) explain the situation and see if there is any way they can help you. They have helped me in the past!!!

I sent an email to billing, but... I don't have high hopes. I mean, why would they want to help? They've gotten plenty of money out of me in the past, and, regardless of how cheated I feel, coincidences are just coincidences and that's life. There's always another person to replace me.

Always nice to have a c-bill mech sale. Also, not complaining about this sale, but hasn't it been a REALLY long time since the IS Orion c-bill chassis went on sale?

The Osiris with 5 and 6 energy are pretty good. Just a bigger Locus and nearly as quick.

Do all the other retailers that you buy goods and services from let you know their sale plans weeks and months in advance?

They put up sales pretty regular. And customer support is actually pretty supportive with helping people who purchased before a sale. You're not a victim, you just have bad timing.

Great, I’m in the mood to buy something ‘just because’... I think I need an Adder, maybe that Florentine...

Yes and no.

Black Friday. Memorial Day. After-Christmas.

But, they don't do a sale, then at the end of the sale, stamp "SALE ENDS TOMORROW" to encourage sales, as if it's actually your last chance, then do another, very similar, sale the next week, and then again at the end of that next, similar sale, stamp "SALE ENDS TOMORROW" to encourage sales, as if it's actually your last chance again, and then finally do another, EVEN BETTER sale with bonuses that the previous buyers didn't get, at the end of the day of that previous sale, even sprinkling a 40% off on top of all that--or, at least, I've never been subject to such a ploy...

And, I wasn't asking to know plans weeks and months in advance. I was bickering about the cheap strategy.

Also, I've been gone 3 years, so I wasn't aware that now they apparently do sales all the time, especially not in this manner, otherwise, obviously, I would have held off instead of biting at the first Solaris 7 Deals. But, if that's the case, does everyone [who knows] just wait? And, then, if we wait and there actually isn't a better sale as in the past and the sale does actually "END TOMORROW," then I'd be salty that I missed my chance. It's sneaky.

In any case, it is my fault that I purchased something I had no idea I could've gotten a better deal on, the next day, and, then again an even better deal the next week. Again, I was just bickering/possibly warning others what could happen in the future, maybe show them they should be patient, unlike me, maybe just to highlight the cheapness of such strategies, maybe to get back at the system, because I felt suckered into something I should've seen coming.
