I don't like GW, just as much as I don't like any large international corporation. The trouble with large corporations is that their main goal are not the customers, but the profits. Those two are unfortunately not exactly the same.
I sure can have some appreciation for people who work there, but I would never "give love" to a corporation.

By that logic, I would starve out, because I would refuse to support food industry. It does not mean that you have to appreciate a company in order to benefit from its products. All you need to is like their products enough to decide to buy them and yeah, I like most of the stuff that Games Worskhop makes, so I buy from it.

That is the goal with any size company, regardless of tinfoilhat theories. Any company who claim differently is lying through their teeth, trying to get the customers approval, so they can get more traction and thus more profit. Any consumer who thinks there's any difference between a small company and a large corporation on this front is not only fooling himself, but giving a unbalanced view on the market itself.

I approve of the message you're trying to get through @fatmantis . There's way too much negativity towards GW in general, no matter what they do. I will, for one, show them some love as I really like the approach they are taking to their products, their strategy and the overall way they're handling their games right now.

Keep at it

thanks man...you know its funny the question is often asked why postings are down...
and this is a prime example...nobody can make a simple gesture without people jumping on about capitalism and gw sucks..blah blah blah...it would be nice if people could just take the hobby..YES HOBBY as is is the good the bad and the expense..and just share...but all the social media sites are the same...just a place to complain...its such a shame...

Sure it is, but corporations do have the means to get away with it without appealing enough to people.
I'm not a big fan of small companies either(or free market in general for that matter), but at least they don't exactly have the means to be as aggressive as large companies are.

OMG do you realize how wired that sounds??? you dont like big companies you dont like small companies..so how in the hell do you survive in this world? live in the sticks? gone bush? of the land?
this really was suppose to be a thread about the love of a hobby..not about capitalism or corporations..what is wrong with you people!!! are you all that sinical and jaded just because something costs money and im might not be 100% what you want?? considering you have the choice...thats really really sad

Yet another thread derailed
@Jacobite has his own opinion of GW and does have a point in that he spends money with GW and that should be enough.

I personally don't conform to this view but also see little point in making 'GW we love you!' posts, as they just descend into bitch fests. I do love a majority of what has been made and I'm really looking forward to the new edition. But then again I enjoy all aspects of the hobby and have plenty of opponents who play the for the same reason I play, to have fun with toy soldiers.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

what doesn't end up in bitch fits on this site...??? it really does seem that the only threads that do well are the ones where people can get up on their soap box and throw a hissy fit....and yet the mods wonder why people dont post...this just makes me question what or if i should post again...it was just supposed to be something light-hearted..but derailed because of capitalism?? wow.......

im really starting to see why so many great members in the past have left.
