11th Anniversary Items Question Again

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Aboo, Jan 6, 2009.

    Here I go again :bdh:

    Since there were EA people on the boards yesterday I thought I would take this opportunity to ask yet again, if there is any word on the 11th Anniversary items for all us people who are NOT in Japan?

    It is very frustrating to be told that we (the other paying customers) would get them 30 days (thereabouts) after Japan did which I believe was around November 13th and yet here it is January 6th and no word yet and most all questions regarding this have been ignored.

    Please can we at least get someone to comment and tell us they don’t know when we are going to get them instead of just ignoring us?

    I'm telling you, they meant to say we'd have it available in Dec '09... they just forgot to put the year when they made the original announcement...

    Wait 11 more months and we'll get them... not a problem.

    *grins at the magicman* I sincerely hope not, it would however be nice to get any news at all, even if Jeremy was mislead and we are not supposed to get them at all.

    That's my point. If Jeremy gave us incorrect information inadvertently, it would be nice if someone corrected that misinformation and told us something else. Just leaving us hanging with no information at all even though it has been asked over and over again is, in my opinion, not good customer service and shows disrespect to their customers.

    Jeremy isn't the only who gave information. I cut, pasted and linked to quotes from Kilandra and Draconi as well as the link on the herald where Kilandra and Mesanna? basically signed off on the rewards. I'll try to find it again.

    Is it spam to just keep posting that info each time the anniversary question pops up? It's not like we'd have to keep asking if they would just communicate with us.

    Perhaps we need to speak/write with Asian accenting since they seem to get everything up front, with no begging or pleading required . . . not like the rest of us.

    So make your R's sound more like L's

    Speaking for myself, I would appreciate the links.

    I am confused as to why someone won't just tell us what is going on. Ignoring us is just rude in my book. Even if they said something came up and they aren't sure when/if we will get them would be better than nothing. Granted it would not make me happy to know we have again gotten the short end of the stick compared to the Japanese market, but at least they would care enough to communicate with us on it.

    Aboo,

    I'll find where I posted it before and link it here in a bit. Gotta do a search.

    Well that was easy enough. :)

    Here's the link to my post from Dec.
    http://vboards.stratics.com/showpost.php?p=1028594&postcount=25

    The two quotes below are the ones I paid most attention to: (bold is mine)

    And this from Draconi:

    I did find something here (dated October 30, 2008) and this is part of what Jeremy said:

    "Since we are sure that some of you would like to also take part in owning this awesome collection of goodies, we will be making this package available on the game codes store for purchase in mid-December." (Emphasis mine)
     
  12. Aboo

    Aboo Guest

    Thank you Flora for finding those quotes. I believe the second quote from Draconi was in response to my inquiry over a month ago regarding this and that may have very well been the last time anyone answered the question even though it has been asked over and over again.
     
  13. DHMagicMan_1

    DHMagicMan_1 Guest

    Like I said, Aboo, they've had a lot of changes at EA, personnel and otherwise in the last three months... The problem is that Jeremy was supposed to put "Mid-December '09" but she didn't... she is no longer with EA...

    Now they are scrambling to figure out what to do and have no idea.

    I heard EA is running to congress asking for a "Bail Out" on the 11th Anniversary Tokens Fiasco so keep an eye on Fox News... we'll probably hear it there before anyone official posts here.

    :hahaha: You gave me quite a chuckle with your post. Thank you, I guess we needed some humor here!
     
  15. Flora Green

    Flora Green Guest

    You're right, Aboo. Draconi's post was in direct response to one of yours. :) BTW, I saw him on the list a few mins ago. Maybe he'll chime in with some updated info.
     
  16. Aboo

    Aboo Guest

    That would be nice.

    I haven't posted about this over the Holidays because they (employees of EA_Mythic) all deserve a holiday too without complaints from us. But since they are back at work now and they were posting yesterday, I had hoped they might answer this question for us since it is way past when they said we should be able to purchase them.

    It would be nice to hear an answer even if they say we will get them when pigs fly.

    Then we just have to figure out how to get the pigs to fly. :D

    I am pretty sure that someone from EA has read this thread but still no response from any of them. :sad3:

    canary Guest

    Indeed. Even at this point a 'We are passing this off to ppl who handle the promotion' would be nice. It's cases like this that warrant people to scream 'WHY ISN'T THE TEAM LISTENING??'

    I mean, at least friggin' own up and ACKNOWLEDGE it has been read.

    Isn't "Cal" in charge?

    Several of us saw him in this thread... if he can't post or get someone else to, I guess that shows what he's in charge of...

    What's the big deal, EA? Own up and answer us, please!

    As I've mentioned, I'm pretty tired of being leftovers, here. We pay the same amount every month, and deserve to be treated the same! :rant2:

    It would be nice to get an official word on this and i am waiting for one. If they don't give us one it's prolly because of what happened to the last person to make an official statement about it.

    Yup seems to me that they just dont want to make money.

    1. Create token code for EA store.
    2. Sell tokens on EA store.
    3. Make money.

    Perhaps im missing something.:thumbsup:
     
  25. Flora Green

    Flora Green Guest

    I'm actually losing interest in buying tokens now. From the time it was announced until now I could have farmed a ton of monsters on an Aisian shard and bought the items in game.

    Indeed we could have but it's sad we would have to resort to that.

    I am thinking of starting a character or two on one of the Japanese Shards. Might be fun! :)

    The saying "The squeaky wheel gets the grease" leaps to mind so I'm trying to keep this front and center in the hopes that someone from EA will finally address it.

    Oh my God!

    An EA post about this topic... It says NOTHING, yet again... but at least it's a post.

    LOL

    Thanks Draconi... now if the people who are supposed to be working on this issue would give us an update... I somehow doubt this falls under the "Live" team's realm, but thanks for at least giving us something. :bowdown:

    The particular topic of this thread is the release of the 11th item collection on uogamecodes.com (not related to anything else that might happen in the future)
