The web team have basically given themselves permission to delete all further complaints and therefore create the impression all is well...so no...GW have not listened as there will be nothing to listen to - genius!
Not really, they have said that they are leaving the threads open for people to continue the discussion, but have asked if those same people could refrain from spamming new threads.
To be honest I don't think I have ever seen a backlash against GW like this before. Sure, there have been grumbles and moans but most of them have been from people who like to grumble and moan and are never happy unless GW are giving stuff away.
Maybe it was how close together everything was, Fine Cast, the embargo and then the price hike all within a couple of days.
Many of the people complaining now were the same people defending GW in the past, I think it is a matter of this time they have gone too far. People are pissed off and will take it out on the people they see as responsible, GW.
With almost any other company on earth if there were about to be price hikes there would be an explanation and possibly an apology to go with the increased dent in your wallet. Instead GW hit you with an embargo and the happy news that they have recast some old minis in resin and want to charge you more for them, hooray!
Oh well, letter posted today supporting those who got shafted.
