And I say spend 10$ (except - see bellow) for this specific thing of your choice with the parameters of the sale spelled out. I believe there is a difference between these two things.
Yes, there is no risk in this offer, but there is no gain either. Transparency does not protect you from your own foolishness.
This, let's call it graciously, so called offer rewards you nothing other than pieces of vanity, I repeat: You do not gain anything.
Furthermore most of these cards can and have been acquired by singular pulls from the seasonal lotto without spending anything at all. They are from a limited card pool available with various offers to make them much easier available. That has ALWAYS been a good thing about seasonals.
The idea of re-skinning the cards is a splendid idea Rom stole from LoL, but it is simply not worth it in the framerate you layed out. This is apparently obvious to everyone but you.
Sorry, you are no less a greedy **** than the bigsuits sitting in japan. Sorry, if you did not expect this result then I am afraid you are delusional.

One was the Market place, of which various events conspired against us, but we're pretty far into the new file editor which is a prerequisite. The other was revamping the entire game first and then addressing it (this is the content of most of the specific complaints above). Our forums search function should get you that stuff. In any case, I found that doing nothing had its own bad side effects so we occasionally do stuff like this. If you don't like it, ignore it. It's not for you and it's not your problem.
I remember, I also remember being pointed out that this approach would prove disastrous and that you need to get your arse moving, if you pardon the expression. Yes, a certain someone pointed out that doing nothing would eventually ruin you; and I am fairly sure this "event" is not moving it into the right direction.
I especially like the bolded part. I don't have to tell YOU how small the player base is, do I?
