    they don't care if you were completely occupied by real life that is not their problem, but you just cost us Average Profit Per Player so shame on you for not being psychic and racing home to your PC to spend money on the game that cant promise future content in specifics

    For those who care, was there a reason?

    APRIL FOOLS!!! You fell for the old " a week is really only 60 minutes" gag!

    I mean, if Gamigo REALLY wanted players to take advantage of such a sweet deal and throw a ton of money away,...I mean, at the game they would have advertised this "sale" well enough in advance so the maximum number of people would benefit instead just those few that happened to see the notice within the teeny, tiny time limit.

    Suckers!

    Not only is it a joke about the length of this event, but they do it at the end of the month even though they should know that the majority of players are not high earners.

    Clearly a great way to get players back to the game! At least WalMart gives the shopper all day on black friday. I expect this thread to be closed today.

    I asked for a reason. The Tae person chimes in for thread closing but is quiet now.

    Looks to me as if they can't afford to sell credits at the double credit price. So they have a short sale to pretend to have a Black Friday. Then they quickly return to the regular prices so they bring in money at the same rate. If players bought these when they aren't making enough money now and make more money at regular prices, especially if they really need more of a gain, this sale might actually lower their ability to pay their expenses. Pretty much a continuation of Trion. They were barely able to keep their heads above water last year and Prime was a last ditch effort that also failed.

    Default Black Friday Week

    Seriously, this seems wrong on so many levels...many of us faithful subscribers would love to have been a part of this had there been more than a quick notice for a one hour only sale on one night only. Very disappointed, so are my alts, we all agree this was unfair!

    Whoever was the brains behind this one hour sale idea, has accomplished losing more of their remaining scant player base, and losing an opportunity to generate badly needed revenue. Seriously,,Gamigo? A one hour sale?? Do they have any idea on how to keep this game alive and keep players interested in playing any more? I beg to differ. I feel sorry for their spokesperson as they have to defend this, and so many other posts of discontent.
