Someone's salty. This is their bundle sale. The Christmas sale is the one with lots of individual ships.

thanks, [edited] your bundles.

They will go on sale again in the future.  No need to be rude and insulting about it.

THAT's the way to get WG to see your point and give you what you want!  :cap_like:

You can buy it later without the pack. You can spend more money to get the ship earlier or wait it out patiently till they introduce them as single packages or as a doubloon purchase in-game.

Yeah, WG’s Black Friday sales are pretty terrible. I rushed to the premium store and...well, rushed away.

Yeah, the entire sale is pretty much "meh".  A lot of expensive bundles made expensive by shoving in a lot of ships no one really wants.

Just checked, seriously disappointed that what we had last year isn't back again with the -50% off the 365 days of premium package. That one was always my first to grab and nothing else interested me.

Disappointed as well, I was looking forward to some sort of nice deal on premium time, nothing else really interests me, I might buy the hotlanta, but I'm honestly on the fence since its *only* a 20% discount.

The Bama is currently being given away if you buy any "Save the Texas" bundle.

 

As for Kii, she will return, just give it time.

Doesn't WG usually make a bigger deal out of cyber Monday than they do Black Friday?

I was just asking about this marketing strategy in The Pigeon's Nest, using the example of the Alabama, which I also want. There is no reason to have a product and not sell it to consumers, but many companies think this is a good strategy. From what I can see, WG's brilliant marketing strategy is to refuse to sell me the Alabama in September for $45 but then to sell it to me for a discount in December or give it to me for nothing in a drawing. Most kind of them!

 

Bundles like WG does too are a old practice in marketing but the research on them, which is abundant, is quite equivocal. I have been unable to find any relevant research on bundling of entirely digital items in games. Too much of the research in this field is game-theoretic. But in general, bundling is known to deter purchasing, as we have seen in this thread...


http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0969698916302636
One major challenge associated with traditional bundling is that it requires consumers to buy unnecessary goods and/or services beyond their actual need in order to qualify for the bundle discount. Under rational decision-making, this burden can and does deter many consumers from purchasing in bundles (Foubert and Gijsbrechts, 2007).

I don't think the Bama is being given away if you buy the "Save Texas" bundle

If you got the bundle within the time listed, you are in the drawing.

O.K they weren't all that clear on that point.
