If I sold you a car, the car of your dreams we can make it, and I said "buy this and get a free pillow as well". Would you want a pillow with feathers in or one with sawdust?
Besides, the pillow would be there to attract customers not make them bugger off. And if it's a free gift, why don't I give it you even if you don't buy the car? The pillow aint free, it goes along with the larger things you buy. Summary, you pay for it.
You have to pay for the Premium Account to get the free item. Let's repeat it; You pay first and then you recieve the free item.
Agreed, but how come you say this when you have stated so many times this IS a free item?
And I wouldn't complain if I bought one steak and got a bottle of sauce as well. But the sauce wouldn't be free as I have paid for getting the steak AND the sauce since that is the offer given to me, so I might look around for a cheaper steak without the sauce that I don't really want.
Actually Midnight, I would just want the car. Im not into faffing about. I much prefer to walk into a store whip up what i need, pay and get on out of there.
These gimmicks that the stores do, actually turn me off sometimes. Its only a few weeks ago that i walked out of one store as the way it was all being sold to me frustrated me more than anything else.
There seems to be a big focus in this Topic now on whats being paid for and whats free. Lets just try set that aside and actually give viable without having a laugh solutions.
I have one and it saddens me to say it. I suggest they remove the free daily item bonus and replace it with something else.
Suggest that everyone who buys a premium is alloted a special number. Once a day or once a week even, they hold a random name draw. The GMs announce the winner via Ingame. Its a sure fire crowd puller to see a GM ingame.
Not only will this hopefully put out the flames and unfortunate negative impact this give away has created.
Or they could even announce the winner via forums. That would attract players to join us merry folk on the Forums. Possibly give Item Mall points as the reward.
Its a kinda crazy concept to me, that an idea, like i have just suggested,would probably be more favourable than whats currently in place.
Alot of players would obviously never win anything. Yet to just have the chance would be more than likely enough. As example, look at the people who buy Lottery Tickets. They know their chances to win are astronomical, yet they still diligantly place those numbers on each week.
As to the lucky players that actually did win...well im sure they would be happy, dont you?
