TP is Scrooge

Please change Tilting Point to Bah Humbug. No Christmas deals??? Except for a 10% Dil deal? OMG TP, you missed out on an opportunity from many players. I guess you are looking for an investment that will lose money? 12 Days of Deals was really nice last year, but this year was the games worst year imo. Evidently TP truly is Scrooge

At least I can say Merry Christmas to everyone. Or Happy Holidays. Or Season's Greetings. But I won't say that to TP/WRG

  • It's not Christmas here in the States yet. Xmas surprise queued up?
  • Can only agree!




    Question is will they get visited by the 3 ghosts? And subsequently change and give away stuff in the morning :D


    Still Happy holidays to all

    Do not compare them to Scrooge! Once he realized that he was wrong, he went out his way to make things right. Expect no such change of heart from TP.

    Also your greeting is not inclusive enough it didn't say Happy Kwanzaa or boxing day... For shame!

    Brat!

    lol, Merry Christmas Homeless <3<3 🍷
  • @Veterinary Phlox True about the campaign but the deals weren’t announced as anything special. I agree with Trista that leading up to Christmas has been disappointing but we can hope for something extra special tomorrow 🖖🖖🖖🖖

    Agreed, the campaign extras were a welcome surprise and much appreciated. However, I thought TP would have an official announcement of something leading up to Christmas. As echoed earlier, they might be saving up for Christmas Day or Convergence Day. There may still be goodness yet to come. LLAP

    I used to laugh when the deals would expire before Christmas when people would usually get gift cards.

    Seems some people missed the point of A Chrismas Carol, aka the Scrooge story. You know, about how being greedy is bad, and that we should appreciate what we have gotten instead of always wanting more. :p

    Just so I have this right. You believe the point was that Bob Cratchet didn't want more and better for his family? I will grant that Bob learned to appreciate what he had better than most people who had more, but he didn't deny himself the desire for more. He wanted a raise to better support his family. It's easy to not appreciate what you have the more you have. Having more isn't wrong, but what's the point of collecting things and money if no one respects or cares for you? If you want to stand on people's backs, you don't want them to decide to pull you down.

    Your take away would apply only to the character of Scrooge (and by extension to the topic, TP). The message of the story against greed is aimed at the rich not the poor. Chuck wasn't telling the masses to divest themselves of possessions and be happy with less. Greed isn't simply wanting more than you have. Only the rich would see the poor wanting more as greedy. It's curious that some people would see the extended lesson as intended not to extend to TP. Why admonish the crowd for greed, but not the company? An odd contradiction, no? Why would the take away of the story be to leave the powerful alone to swim in their money vault?

    TP is going to give us all a free lump of coal avatar at noon :p

    Itll only be a 1* lump of coal though :D

    And half way through immortalising it, the art work will be withdrawn and changed unexpectedly ...

    Happy Christmas/holidays Trekkers.

    I agree with you 100% Trista. One would think after the recent foul ups discussed widely across these boards, WRTP would be falling over themselves to make amends to the loyal customers with offers and deals.

    Instead there is nothing.

    All 5 Christmas books were a concerted effort by Dickens to showcase the plight of the poor in England and London in particular and to try to get the rich to be more generous.

    I will disappoint you, there will be no further news for sure until Monday or Tuesday, and even that we still don't know if it's what we want or not. After all, not everyone is able to invest money on a constant and permanent basis.
