I Require Feedback

Greetings all,

Over two months ago, I publicly vowed on this forum to wait to hit VIP 14, with the goal being to cross the VIP 14 finish line by purchasing the five 4* citation offer. Since that declaration I have not once seen that offer, nor seen any forum threads where it was offered to anybody else. I have reached out to DB on the forums in other threads and on twitter numerous times asking for that offer, and lately asking if it is still even an offer at all, and have heard nothing.

In short, I am stuck. I want to honor my promise, but I have no idea if it is even a valid vow anymore if the citation offer has been discontinued. Ideally I'd like to wait until I get that offer because that was my dream/goal, but I'm also tired of waiting, partly out of frustration over the fact that I'm literally trying to give a company money and them not wanting it, partly out of annoyance that every week I spend nothing (I'm RIGHT on the threshold of VIP 14, I can only safely buy one more monthly card without going over) I'm losing ground, and partly because I feel it is passed time for the party thread.

So the only thing I can think to do is either stay the course, or else bring this to the public forum and ask the community if I may be released from my vow, so to that end, will you guys allow me to take back by stated pledge to wait to hit VIP 14 until I buy the citation offer? This may seem silly, but to me this is a matter of honor.

    I always appreciate your posts and will continue to do so, regardless if you keep the vow or not. Please don't get frustrated and do whatever it takes to keep the pleasure in playing this game.

    This. And also you know what will happen the day after you give in......

    Isn't this offer only given out on Christmas or big holidays? I have only seen it a couple of times.

    More importantly, why on God's green Earth would you make that kind of vow to get VIP 14? Especially, on something so rare and insignificant?

    Real men get to VIP 14 by only monthly cards. /flex

    Not sure if this game will ever last long enough for that to happen. But I respect those that stick with just the monthly hoping for the day they can make VIP 14.

    I've asked about this offer on the forums numerous times in the past, and never got a solid answer about it. You may be right, I am not sure. But that is kind of my point in a way, what is the point of stuff like this not being public knowledge? As to why I did it, why not? At the time that offer had been given twice in a matter of weeks, so I just assumed it was going to become a regular part of the rotation, so why not have a little fun? Honestly though, asking why at this point is not incredibly useful, the past is the past.

    To perhaps put this issue to bed, given the feedback from several people whom I have tremendous respect for were all unanimous in dissolving my obligations to hold to the original promise, I have since crossed over into the land of VIP 14, and will begin preparations for the party thread! Thank you everyone for engaging with me on this subject.

    That's the most important thing, leave it behind and enjoy the game. DB has creative rights to do whatever they want and they don't have to tell us when, why or how. You can leave feedback in the forums about anything but I wouldn't get bent out of shape over their decisions or lack of feedback. We players can't know everything going on behind the scenes. Just enjoy VIP 14 and the extra crew slots that come with it.

    Took over 3 hours to open all the packs, deal with all the beholds, and screen grab all of it, but that work is now complete. I did make one mistake, but otherwise it went smoothly, although it did fry my brain, so stay tuned for the main event!

    The data gathering is always the painful part. Would be nice if the device were using had unlimited memory. So we could just let it video record it all. But, that still would mean going back and watching the video and documenting the data.
    But, mistakes would be minimal.

    Question: have you made the purchase or still waiting for the right offer?
    If waiting I would not be shocked if you finally get that citation offer this weekend😉

    Just make sure you use all that honour to cite someone to 5/5 that will be memorable to you. So you have something to remember this moment. 🙂

    Once I was publicly released from my original agreement, I immediately bought the Test Pilot Archer bundle for a host of reasons, and that pushed me over the VIP 14 threshold. I did wait until I hit VIP 14 to crack open the cache.

    Just make sure you use all that honour to cite someone to 5/5 that will be memorable to you. So you have something to remember this moment. 🙂

    I'm undecided as to where all that honor is going to go, but given how I shot up from around 35,000 to dang near 100,000, I have also been kicking around the idea of buying Kahless. That would be immensely memorable, and also very useful on those Gauntlet rounds when he is basically an auto-win.
