Nobody who was asking for this race wanted it to happen like this. What this is, is insulting and dishonest in every possible way.
If you werent around for this whole campaign now you'll never get the race and every time you log on the fact you were screwed by PWE will be flying in your face becuase it shows up whether its possible to unlock or not.
All races should be buyable in zen store for roughly the same cost as the Moon Elf pack. This isn't something that is controversial, this is called not being sleazy.
