i consider the advertisement: "up to 50% off the most sought after auras" to be absolutely manipulative.

i am not new to it and i still refuse to get Used to it. certainly won't enjoy it.

your defeatist post, imo, did not disagree with me, that the advertisement is manipulative, you simply told me that i must expect, accept and condone the socially accepted practice. i refuse to. i stand alone, i reject the practice that solidifies the emergent structure it leads to. {the socially accepted practice itself}.

take a stand. don't create an emergent structure that sucks.

All I'm saying is that it's not illegal what they're doing, there's no legislation against it. All you can do is vote with your wallet - don't buy anything that's not 50% off when they do advertise 50% off.

yeah, i'm not talking about legality. just decent human interaction between a company and it's valued customer. the manipulation shows "the value".

I'm with Johan here. While maybe not technically inaccurate, their wording was disappointingly misleading. From the fact that they have been hyping up this "50% off auras" sale for over a month prior to the sale, I expected something big. I expected most if not all auras to be 50% off. I didn't expect there to only be a single aura at 50% off... I dropped by the store to see about picking up some auras I didn't have yet, and found there to be only a single aura that I don't yet have on sale, and that one at only 25% off. From this thread I see that the high level skilling auras are also on sale, but I'd have to buy three other auras at full price before getting the "on sale" level 4 & 5 auras at a mere 25% off. Very lackluster for what the sale was touted as. If they had just dropped this sale on us this week I wouldn't care, but after raving over and over about how amazing this "50% off auras sale" was going to be for over a month now, I certainly expected a lot more. Very disappointing.
