…and yet “the usual” is what you’re gonna get.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m with ya, as someone on EUW with several T3 chars, most of them somewhere between Valtan and Argos level, and well over a thousand hours deep, I feel ya!
I can’t get proper engravings on the lower T3 chars because our accessory market is empty.
I can’t find groups to do content with after 10pm, 11pm, because our region’s party finder is empty.
All the while the absurd levels of inflation seem to not be about to halt any time soon…
So I am absolutely with ya - but if you look back just a little bit, you will see that the entire EU region has been treated like an afterthought since launch.
Look no further than the infamous incident of a certain NAE server’s entire playerbase getting a $20 starter pack for what comes down to being a simple server outage for a couple of hours (less than 24h), while days/weeks of no-play for EUC due to the rampant queues went uncompensated.
Heck, some of the people who were promised a second Founder’s Pack, with regards to them moving to EUW back then still haven’t received those to this day.
I myself opened a ticket for a missing powerpass about 3 or 4 weeks ago (which I was told would take around 48h), and despite checking in twice on said ticket I still have not heard back from them to this day.
Not that I really give a sh*t at this point anymore because I just blew the gold on the knowledge transfer and got it done that way - but this is just another anecdote of how much your patronage means to Amazon.
And you know what, I don’t even blame Roxx or any of the other CMs; frankly I think the CM team is understaffed (most of them aren’t even from the EU let alone play here) and probably completely out of the loop half of the time, as would be par for the course in a company that cannot be bothered to deal with simple tickets within a 4-week-timeframe.
Ultimately CMs have to be the punching bags for a more or less articulate community that has to deal with the neverending frustrations caused by a company that does not give a sh*t about their customers or the products that they are handling (and consequently running into the ground).
At this point, I have resigned myself to the fact that I will either be forced to quit or start over on NA if I want to continue playing, given the state of our region.
Enjoy your weekend, and here’s to getting an official and satisfactory statement on the matter soon! (lol)
