Does anyone know what the culture is like over at GW? 'cause they've just got these notions I don't get.
Another, thing, their website fires a popup that says it is tuned for four different browsers and to please use those... But what they are really saying is they prefer you to not use Internet Explorer. So they write their site to work for four different browsers that cover 30% of the market just to spite they bulk of their users? You know, the 70% or so that use IE? Why on earth would they hire a web development group that focuses on telling their consumers to use different tech? WHo the hell hired those idiots and why is that acceptable to them?
For example, another thread discusses their price change not making sense compared to conversion rates. Are they just trying to pull more money into the UK economy taxes by making it cheaper to buy there and ship out?
And of course, they've always had a hate-hate relationship with any vendor they don't totally control. They seem fixated on control of their retailers rather than letting the market sell their goods for them (at a higher rate). Don't tell me it is because they have a limited supply, there are dusty boxes of just about everything at stores that are foolish enough to maintain in-store stock on GW.
So we have a bunch of control freaks who will actively engage in practices that limit their convenience to customers.
Good thing the game is fun. If I hadn't gotten hooked 12 years ago I'd probably be playing Flames of War right now, mainly because it is just so much easier to actually deal with them. (Oh, and Flames of War does indeed rock, but that is another thread)
RecklessFable's Journey to Mediocrity (Painting an IG army)
I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
The world will end soon, let GW have their fun...
In other news, the prices and customer support at GW are ridiculous.
So... if I gave some daemons a matte paint-job, would they be "Matte Daemons?"
