Competiton

Discussion in 'Vanguard Stratics Forums' started by Mystic Princess, Mar 12, 2009.

  1. Still watching emails still watching posts, still watching pm's .............. anything from SOE about this? Surely 4 months they could have strolled from the USA to the UK, not forgetting pred is in the USA and has won a copy and not got it yet.

    I understand your dismay...trust me I do! I too am embarrassed beyond belief over this whole issue.

    As soon as I am provided the funds to ship your prizes, they will be sent. I do have them, and will make sure they get sent to you when I am able.

    Please direct any further questions to [email protected] as he is the one who can answer your 'when' question better than I at this point.

    IS there anyone higher up the food chain that we might be able to email on this? I don't think that it is totally fair that you take the brunt of this.

    The email address I provided is the founder of the network.

    Remember too that if anyone had game time coming, I *can* get you that info via email or PM here, just let me know!

    I sent him a message almost a week ago now just asking for all my gametime and the key from the CE. I also asked him how much it would cost if I paypalled him the money to get this shipped to my darn self. I think that is pretty pathetic. Its been what? almost half a YEAR?
     
  7. Got a mail saying they had sent it, Ill keep a watch with Pred he will get it first as hes USA based then I know it will be genuinely sent :) so Pred poke me in guild if you get it which I am sure you will :) ...........

    If the original game would have waited this long to ship I bet it would have been much more successful
     
  11. I reckon SOE got ripped off for a bunch of boxsets and everyone at stratics got a freebie.

    Watch this space for the 'omg, we had a fire....' post, or the 'office dog chewed them all up' post.

    Funny really, EVERYTHING with Vanguard on it seems to have been an abortion from day one. This was probably inevitable if you think about it. Jinxed or what?

    By the time we get these, they could be the first prizes ever for something that no one wants. The game is getting buggier by the day for me at present. No restarts, no patches nothing, It's like the staff just gave up.

    If Stratics and Vanguard Development are two examples of American businesses in action, no wonder the economy is screwed.

    Such a shame. Yet more bad Vanguard PR.

  13. They won't though, A is now blaming B and B has already blamed A fun huh!

    One says one has the box sets now the other says no the other has it, don't you just love tennis, I actually complained to Amneris this time stating that sony should at least say something, hahaha ohhhh hahah who am I kidding.

    SOE are a law to themselfs.... you would think with Vanguard running down the tubes fast, they would give a bit huh, spending oodles of dosh on Panthyon, etc, hump great advert vanguard *thumbs up*

    I'm still around, and I still have your prizes.

    I'm not with Stratics now, but as soon as I am provided the funds to ship your prizes you will get them.


    Email the owner :)

    Has anyone emailed Den?
    Furthermore, has anyone received a response of any kind?

    I get the feeling that this is one of those situations that won't get solved by waiting.
    Honestly, this runs contrary to my experiences. I received a Stratics package fairly expediently, with the only fault being the USPS mauling the package, and losing some of the contents.

    Yeah emailed them both, just keep getting the run-around. This is pathetic.

    NO run around, really.

    I was told I would be provided funds to ship these. I have not. The prizes sit here in my living room boxed and ready to send.

    All I'm waiting on is the funds to send them. :)
     
  22. Look this is getting silly now, it's like watching two girls fighting, emailed one this one says that one, that one says this one, g... come on!!

    Yes yes ohh stratics is good for UO always has been but there is no excuse, I am willing to pay my own dam shipping and for Pred's who by the way could have walked to you by now to get it hes in the US, and for Shazam... so can we get a resolve for this before it ends up crawling to the year, we have been at this for a long long time now. This competiton was done in good faith, so excuses don't cut it any more, I think everyone has been more than patient, dont you?

    So can you send me either an address to mail you a cheque, cash or whatever you need, or easier a paypal account so I can get these to the three of us.

    Well do it then do it do it, we want to pay we offer to pay pffft to Stratics sending you cash, if you say no now your just taking the pee out of us all...

    There is a thing called consumer protection laws ya know.... A promoter may not misrepresent purchase
    credits, or fail to award prizes or redeem credits as promised.

  27. Grats Zig on your 20+ free copies of Vanguard that belong to us.

    My wife even offered to paypal the shipping costs to you for 3 of us and you ignored her, your ignoring her icq requests to try and sort something out, says it all I guess, not worth the hassle emailing just to listen to how its someone elses fault.

    sent you emails zig, you never responded, we attempted to contact you and you're ignoring us

    you said you have the boxes, and now you stole them
