Season Transition Compensation

Simple fix would of been those with season 9 gear to upgrade via npc vendor for season 10 gear. Even trade 1 piece of season 9 chest gets you 1 piece of season 10 chest. seems real simple and everyone would of been happy. But no blizzard has to go about it the hard way to find out who got screwed over and then they decided lets bend um over like a old break down shotgun and pull um on like a old boot and only give them 4k points and only to a select few.

Ok, I'm sick of reading the "Let blizz correct this" posts...

No.

THIS WAS THEIR CORRECTION. And they still eff'd it up. Correct their correction? Do you understand how idiotic that sounds?

Let me remind of the screw ups this season transition:

Strike One: Converting my conquest points to gold a week before it was supposed to. Unintentional but it still happened.

Strike Two: Releasing new gear without telling me it was forthcoming allow me and thousands of others who pvp'd that week to waste their time.

Strike Three: Failing to give me the honor they promised as recompense for the earlier slight.

Ok...I'm sorry, but no more "It's okay, Blizz, sh*t happens, we understand" posts. You had three strikes.


This. So much this.

Yeah, like many others, I didn't get honor on 3 of my 4 deserving toons.

The thing that sucks is I got the honor on a toon that I wasnt even sure deserved it. I bought gear in that week then didnt play the toon. After S10 started I still had the return available, so I returned the S9 gear and bought the S10 version. THAT is the only toon that got the honor. Other toons like this one that absolutely deserved it (grinded and spent at least 18k in that week), got nothing...

Is it delivered via the mail system? Maybe it's just taking some time to show up. *hopeful*


They points should just be in your HP total already (signed in and had 4350 hp)... my toon got a mail message explaining why I got the points, but the points should already be available to you - but since it sounds like you didn't, it sounds like they screwed up.

I farmed the full set and have started farming the s10 set.

got nothing>

not to mention wasting the time and all that honor and gems and enchants etc.

much much much more than the 4k honor promised and again not delivered, while those who only bought like one piece got the 4k in my guild.

OUCH

Just logged in...no honor...this is ridiculous.

This toon had all the S9 gear, which I've since ground out hours of pvp to replace with S10 gear.

Where's my promised compensation?!

My druid was full S9 from *last season* but capped, bought a couple of offspec pieces. Basically retired him. He got 4k honor.

This mage had farmed hours upon hours of S9, was capped at the end of that transition week, no compensation at all.

I really wish they wouldn't have bothered if they couldn't have solved it in a reliable way. Also, I've already farmed out most of my S10 vicious gear. The honor compensation wouldn't have mattered. Maybe I get one of those expensive shoulder inscriptions. Ideally, I would have liked that time lost spent honor farming somehow transferrable to my 3rd alt who I'm currently grinding for.

In short, too little, too late, and not solved reliably.

lol...by the time they figure out how to compensate ppl you wont need honor and your extra 4k with be for a stack of ore. If you actuall do any pvping you've already bought most or all of the s10 honor 2 weeks later anway.

4k honor is nothing, people just need to get over it or ask for 4k gold instead.

CASH IS ALWAYS THE BEST COMPENSATION.

Got them for my warrior (I don't do arenas with her), I purchased 16 from the 17 pieces during that weekend and just 1-2 pieces for my others toons, no compensation for those. So I think this is related to the amount of honor points earned/spent during that time, how much I don't know.

Just to add to the plethora of people who didn't get their deserved reimbursement... ME TOO!!!

Would be great if you could stop messing up Blizz. Consumer confidence and all that other good stuff....

A Blue post would really be helpful.

For real. I mean, was it really that hard to do an armory database search for toons with pvp365 gear obtained during that week? I mean, each armory has a record of when you obtained your gear...why couldn't blizz just use that as info? In the end, they nuked the solution that ended up screwing over more people, yet. again.

can't be as I bought one piece of gear on my priest from honor I had and was rewarded with 4k honor while on this character I bought multiple pieces from the honor I earned over the AV weekend during the July 4th holiday.

How did I know that we would all get SCREWED by Blizz on this.

I wasted over 10K of honor!

I see that I have not received any honor yet!

WTF BLIZZ!!!!

So, did this not happen or did you just forget to refund _everyone_? I bought 5 or so items during this period with combined capped Justice and Honor points. When I logged in today, I haven't received any reimbursement or compensation for my lost points? What gives?

It is funny how the three alts that only bought a couple of the 365 gear items got the 4k honor, but the two alts I farmed honor the most, missed out on the 4k. Still wearing the 365 gear as well.,
From the CS Forums:

Ok guys,

Looks like they are investigating some of these cases through our game master department, please submit a petition or web ticket here: https://us.battle.net/support/

***Please keep the following message in mind, you must have spent the honor between the June 28 and July 5 to be eligible.****

Thanks for that info, ticket done.
