    Yes. Though it may not seem significant, the sales / promotions for zen devalues in game gold. This is great for a heavy cash shopper like myself, but it also requires me to spend LOTS less money in game to get what I want. They need to balance the amount of stuff provided per dollar spent with the amount of money coming in. This way I have to spend $2,000 to get what I want instead of only spending $1,000 to get the same amount of leaves.

    Given this situation where people are spending in spite of the absence of sales, I'm pretty confident that there will be no charge rewards or BOGOs for the foreseeable future. Maybe on Valentine's Day? Before guild wars 2 came out, we didn't really have this ridiculous merc BOGO every other week / charge promo every month extravaganza, so why should we demand it?

    Bottom line. The value of the dollar has dropped in this game. It looks like we're getting some hot stilettos tonight!

    bottom line is with the ammount of ppl who are waiting for a bogo or charge promo and seeing as the auction house is pretty much frozen cause ppl are holding onto their gold, it'd be pretty damn stupid to wait till valentine's day hell even to wait till end of the month.

    I had some christmas money to spend, was waiting for the charge rewards to open... they haven't opened, I haven't bought leaves. It's a pretty simple formula. No rewards = no spending.

    PWE gave us some boxes to collect and 20 minutes of dailies to do for a holiday event, and that's it. Lame as hell.

    I think the point is as follows...
    Say I have $550.00 that I'm saving for charge rewards.
    I see that nothing has changed on the main site since Christmas although it is the 7th of the month and holidays have been over for quite sometime now.
    So...with nothing being announced about charge rewards (or anything else for that matter)
    I go and buy that $500.00 pair of stiletto heels
    (that would compliment my pencil skirt nicely at work)
    THEN they do the charge rewards and i spend the remaining
    $50.00 dollars on charge rewards....
    therefore, this company has just lost out on $500.00 and only gained $50.00 because I have already spent the money on my
    oh so sexy stilettos.
    Now do you see the point?

    i know for a fact that most people on eyrda want a charge promo and are waiting for it and whats worse is that its actually starting to affect non csers even. cause every one is holding onto their money waiting for the bogo/promo the auction house is pretty much frozen. barely anything sells unless its for a cheap price, ontop of that leaf prices are waaay down to what they normally are now sure thats nice but with all the people waiting for the promo its pretty silly not to do one since those people are just gonna spend their money they were gonna cs with on other stuff. seeing as theres plenty of alluring stuff out in the rl world lulz.

    I was just wondering if these were coming back?

    I got some PWE gift cards for Christmas and have been waiting patiently for the daily specials and BOGOs to come back so I can get more bang for my GC buck!!

    remember back in the old days when there were no charge rewards? and no daily bogo sales?

    good times... the economy wasnt destroyed then.....

    **** the sales, star crystals and fusions shouldnt double in price over night.

    I'm just curious, IF and just say IF you get a charge promo of BOGO how many of you are going to start rage posting is something goes wrong?

    Since it seems that when palyers post that they want something and the secnd it goes wrong there are rage posts stating that "you should have tested that better" or "if you knew there were going ot be bug why put it out there"

    I'm really thinking this could be the reason there is no promo of any type going on right now, they are in fact making sure there is no bug, snag, SNAFU what ever you want to call it so you can get the items and not complain about it later.

    I think by now, after a month or so of nothing, and after sitting on 15k leaves, I'd just be happy to get the 2/3 or 1/2 of the bogo that I can claim now, even if it means I wait a week or 2 for the second part of my loot.

    The economy is dead, I've managed to buy leaves for 26s at some point, because gold has become so scarce. All the prices are dropping and rage/blood have dropped officially into the below 2g.

    A crystalline that sold for 7-8g just a month ago is down to 4g.

    These are just a few cases of the down economy we're experiencing that will take a month or 2 at least to recover.
