    It's embarrassing and makes a terrible frist impression.

    get over it.

    You never been given a task to do as you were rushing out the door? This seems like typos as someone was heading off to thanksgiving. And before you say use a spellcheck, I can't recall many graphics programs with that feature.

    deliberate typo?

    "Hey Champions! Black Friday is making its way to Millennium City, complete with some massive discounts. From Thursday, November 27th until Saturday November 29th, we will be offering a variety of items discounted by 50%.

    The sale item will change every 6 hours, so make sure to check in regularly and get the best deals in town while the discount lasts!"

    Champions online, where people freak out harder over minor issues in games than even the Game Grumps' Arin Hansen does.

    I don't care much about spelling. My only grip is that they should have announce it earlier but well. Still I am happy that they are pulling great offers so kudos to the management :biggrin:

    If you need to use spell-check for the word "Friday", then maybe you shouldn't be in charge of the marquee graphics for the game launcher.

    If it weren't so prominently placed, then yeah, who cares. But it makes the game look like it's run by illiterates and/or those who don't give a crap.

    Well, technically PWE doesn't give a crap.

    Fact of the matter is that typos happen in various forms in publications from time to time. The only difference is whether the message is misrepresentated enough that in this case, leads to false advertising.

    Since it obviously isn't and anyone can clearly tell that its about a Black Friday 50% off sale, then this a trivial matter, so stop making such a big deal out of it.

    Lulz. Only in CO forums would the simple suggestion that a horribly prominent typo be fixed become a hot topic of debate. Make yourself a turkey sandwich and dial back the intransigence a notch for a day, Jenny.

    fixed by who exactly? It's thanksgiving. I am sure the last thing anyone is thinking about is "I must get back to the office and fix that typo"

    I never argued against the typo needing to be fixed.

    When you start making hyperbolic statements like "game is being run by illiterates / those who don't give a crap" to describe something so laughably minor, expect it to turn into a "hot topic of debate".

    Also, I don't like turkey.

    Eh, to be fair, Jon and Arin both were awful at following basic tutorials and gameplay hints that address much of the nitpicking they'd have w/ each game. Dan at least convinces Arin that they need to look up stuff sometimes- after the 10,000th time the Grumps willfully ignore or fly past instructional bits cause they're too busy exaggerating their outtakes for the viewers or cause Arin's burping or farting up a storm again or w/e the poopybuttTopic of the Day is.

    In their case, the nit-picking is often caused out of ignorance. Here, its just to be critical of the game's presentation.

    I think its a silly mistake, and in being a silly mistake- something to just chuckle at and move on. If it becomes a repeated issue in the presentation for CO, then ofc my concern would grow.

    Didn't I tell SweetNsour, just yesterday to read things backwards to catch typos?
    Well maybe they'll sell us some Black fir trees for the holidays.

    Stuff like this haunted me every day of my graphic design career.
    Except that one time I was doing an insert for Popeye's Chicken for a client who was totally anal about ever millimeter of her layout. I switched "Two Dine for the price of one" to "Two Die for the price of one" and the look on her face was worth every miserable moment on that account.
