XP exchange was not a disaster. People didn't read. It clearly says, and with pictures, elite XP. The site has always said, "ship XP" when referring to the ship convertible XP.

Yes indeed...bait and switch scams often work best because of customer confusion.

I had no plans on converting either "ship" or "elite" XP so I have no side to take in this fight. I do see where the confusion came from and although I don't believe that WoWS was doing it on purpose the whole thing did leave a bad bait and switch taste in some peoples' mouths.

Except it wasn't a bait and switch. Its not WG's fault some people just lack the ability to read or understand something extremely basic.

As I said I don't believe that WoWS did it on purpose; BUT THAT DOSEN"T MATTER.

The fact that it left a bad bait and switch taste in peoples' mouths is what the company should be worried about. Establishing blame is all fine and good but it doesn't change what is the end result.

It's not WG's fault most of the playerbase, or the ones complaining have the IQ of a 2 year old. Only the ones who can't understand something so basic are complaining.

Again...who cares whose fault it is. The question now becomes how does the company deal with another(although admittedly minor) public relations snafu.

They don't need to. Just need to continue on as normal.

To be perfectly fair, I was somewhat surprised when I logged in and found the XP bonus was for Elite XP. Took me rereading the article to realize I was illiterate. I can understand if people were annoyed, but they'll probably have another conversion bonus by Christmas at the latest so people just need to chillax. The amount of outrage over this is kind of stupid. Especially since Wargaming are truthful, even if the mistake is easy to make. Mabe hey should put in Elite Commander XP to help distinguish it. But still, not a big deal.
