ctsteel Posted May 2, 2014 Share Posted May 2, 2014 It was the confusion between original message about availability (at least how I'd read it) and the situation when they went up for sale that caught me out - with the time zone differences I would have had to be on the webstore at 4am or so just to have had a shot at the first batch. I had expressed confusion and a desire for clarity on the handling in the thread before the extra posts were culled but I was rather shocked when the reference to nasty messages was made - up until that point there'd been some expressions of disappointment or whatnot but all still polite and appropriate seeming to my reading. I make a point of being polite and respectful in all my forum travels, so I hope that none of my posts over that period contributed to the feeling of being harassed. Having said that, I understand and totally respect the position Bryan's put forth as to "attendees first, bag/contents limited" etc. I do hope some form of swag bag will be offered in the future because short of dropping a couple of thousand dollars to fly from Australia over to Texas (and I actually floated this wild notion with my wife the other night for next year's Con ), I don't really have any chance of taking part in the Con or the related exclusive items. And (as in this case) I wanted to feel somewhat connected to the excitement of it all and the exclusive limited items are always a draw, so I'm hopeful that this can be an option for me in the future. If there are fixed limited quantity of the full version bag, and we know about it up front and we know the time that they will be up, that's fine with me - I'll either decide to get one and arrange my online time accordingly, or I'll decide not to and let it go. But at least I'll have the information to decide for myself, rather than miss out because it's not known until it's too late. For my personal view the extra third party supplier stuff would be nice to still have as it will expose me to other vendors and products, and things like the gaming mags and sample models/bases etc can be like fun little surprises. But I'd equally be appreciative of the Reaper-only option being what we get (short of the remainder of the full bags being available at a set time after the con or such). 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
