Man...we have been trolled hard
07/01/2013 07:24 PMPosted by VinnyIYour issue is you think just because something is promised and you don't read the "fine print" that you are owed something. Sorry... read the fine print. Blizzard wouldn't back out if they were legally obligated to release that content. Obviously they had some legal mumbo jumbo in place to protect themselves should they not decide to release the content... this isn't the first company to do this... welcome to America.
It wasn't only promised. It was advertised. You really need to look up false advertisement because you obviously don't know the ramifications of a company falsely advertising a product.
LOL Has anybody ever bought a hamburger from a fast food joint and it looked just like the ad? No, its all smashed small.
Every commercial on TV is a troll attempt. lol
07/01/2013 08:24 PMPosted by NoxiferAnd where's that "fine print" which would allow Blizzard to get away with advertising Arenas prior and post the games release and get away with not delivering? I can pretty much guarantee there are protective laws in Europe against this kind of behavior... I don't know about USA, but from what I hear they don't tolerate false advertisement either.
07/01/2013 08:50 PMPosted by NoxiferSounds all good and well at first, but what if they announce another PvP mode, make us wait for it another year and then shelve it up again? And then another, and another? How long must we wait in order to get the PvP mode. Two years? Three? Five? Ten? How long?
07/01/2013 08:50 PMPosted by NoxiferAnd what if we don't like that mode at all, what if we want the mode, which was advertised at the time of our purchase? How come they even get to switch the contents of the game at will?
If you people really think you know what false advertising is... you should all be suing every single item sold in "Infomercials". I see commercials on TV every single day for items that promise to do this or do that... and they are only $19.99 and not only that if you buy them now you get a second for FREE! You only pay a processing fee! Wait I thought they just said free?? How can they advertise it for free but then I have to pay some fee to get it? Is that not false advertisement? No. There are sneaky ways around the laws... loopholes if you will. These people know how to advertise and "promise" while at the same time protecting themselves. Guess what, it happens... it's called capitalism and marketing.
If you don't like a company or a product... unless they have completely crossed the line or broken a rule... there is nothing you can do but stop buying/using their products or services.
