    This is not explicitly detailed on the fly screen - nor does it defualt to an error or loop screen if you are not eligible for this offer - When you click the Go Now biutton you are taken to the Gem Purchasing page, indicating that you have to purchase 1400 gems to proceed. This is a sharp practice.

    Anyone in the EU who purchased believing this was a genuine offer should be able to seek a refund for this scam through the purchasing agent.

    Heroes of Camelot is only a game but KABAM as a corporate entity (wherever based) have to adhere to Consumer Legisilation regardless.

    Legal Key points:
    (1) FLYER TITLE --- Beginners's Offer V3 Special - suggesting this offer is new to V3.
    (2) First Line of Text --- Get a Beginner's Offer now - suggesting you have to do something (purchase gems) to get the offer. (Use your Beginner's Offer would have been less confusing).

      Please ignore these people, Aaron. They believe because of their stupidity they are entitled to kick up a fuss and get free stuff out of it. To anybody with half a brain the promotion was very clear at who was eligible and who was not. If people choose to throw their money at an offer without even reading it, or checking the forums if they are unclear then frankly, they deserve to be parted with their money.

        Hello Hoeldin,

        Welcome to the forum.

        Your vitriolic outburst – it probably comes down to one of the following?

        A: You genuinely believe what you stated – notwithstanding the offensive words you used.

        B: You are in the employ of Kabam, or it’s owners.

        C: You got caught like a lot of other people and you are equalising your cognitive dissonance.

        I not really surprised that there is not lot more traffic about this subject on this Forum – some people simply don’t bother – others have learned that Kabam will not respond to them. Yet more have learned that promised made are rarely (or never) fulfilled.

        I play across 5 realms and there has been a lot of realm chatter – mostly moans and groans since this “Promo” began – it certain seems to upset quite a few players.

        I agree with you on the point of checking the Forum – perhaps all rules for promotions and games should be posted on Forum a few days before the event – this would certainly allow people to make a more informed choice or judgement on whether to participate; furthermore it might even attract more players.

        For my part I was simply stating those players who purchase within the EU and that believe that they were misled over this Promo may have a legal right within the EU to seek a refund. We within the EU are fortunate that we have VERY STRONG CONSUMER PROTECTION – unlike other territories where it is a case of Caveat Emptor. (If in doubt review the fines and penalties recently awarded against Microsoft)

        I have information from a source I trust that Heroes of Camelot suffers considerably more buyers’ remorse that any other game. I believe a lot of this is down to miscommunication and the fact that the Kabam poorly explain either the Rules or the Risk of a particular event.

        The take up of this game may have even surprised Kabam – this thought is borne out by the perceived lack initial game development and the fact that the Developers are always playing catch-up. This game certainly seems to have become a cash cow for Kabam and perhaps they need to tighten up their corporate and international responsibilities.

        Anyhow back to A, B or C

        It’s not nice to accuse your fellow gamers of being ‘Stupid’ or say that they have ‘half a brain’ – if it were not for the anonymity of the internet – comments like that could open you up to a ton of legal angst.

        On the balance of probability:

        A 5%
        B 45%
        C 50%

        Have fun – enjoy the game – be more positive – help your fellow gamers.

        He who merely sniffs my flower does not know it, and he who plucks it merely so as to learn from it also does not know it.

            As the message indicates, you will receive your extra items in 1-2 days after purchase.

                On the offer it says "The Beginners Offer only lasts for 72 hours so get it while you can!" It says nothing about your account being 72 hours old. Why don't you state that inside your offers. Then you wouldn't have this problem of everyone razing on you.
