I watched the videos on YouTube. I read the reviews in magazines. I read many forum threads. I got excited about the game. I went to GuildWars 2.com and clicked the Buy Now button. I was ready to buy a copy for me and my girlfriend and we were gonna give this new adventure a try.
Digital version...SOLD OUT. Digital Deluxe version...SOLD OUT. The $150 Collector Edition...the only option.
Really? Do you honestly think people in the 21st century believe you can sell out of a digital copy? Your efforts did not net you $300 for two new players, it didn't even net you $120 as I was expecting to shell out. It netted you $0 because of your greed.
Some might say, their servers are too full. How long does it take to throw up another server? Another dozen servers if needed. If you don't have enough servers to meet the game demand. Add servers. Don't just create some artificial scarcity by which people have to buy a $150 version.
There are copies in stores, but I won't be buying it. Not after the bad taste this shady strategy has left with me. It could be an awesome game. But I won't give it another look. You had an opportunity to make a sale, and you refused it with your fail attempt to funnel people into an overpriced version of your game. Fire your marketing people. You guys are missing out on who knows how many thousand sales.
