Yaaaaay.....more crap to waste money on.....

Seriously, this sale is magnifying the fact that Anet currently doesn't have many desirable Cash items for sale at the moment.  They should have just waited on something like this until Christmas when I'd assume they'll actually have new costumes and other stuff up.

So I guess keys are not being sold alot?
I'd think keys are one of the best selling things in the shop. Cause they actually give you something.

Everyone was better off buying the BL keys yesterday since it can give you multiple items including most of the junk on sale today. They should put the good stuff on sale, but they won't out of greed just like every other business out there. It's like any other black friday for every retailer in the world. 99% of the crap they put on sale is just that....crap....and people will buy it because it's supposedly "on sale." I saw maybe 2 legit good deals in stores, but the only way to get those were to be the first 10-20 people in line and be there super early. Let's hope cyber monday turns out some much better deals.

Actually, I think they're showing that they know exactly what their customers want.

You don't think they'd offer deep discounts on stuff that people would buy anyway, do you? No, they discount the stuff that doesn't sell - like the three dollar revive orbs.

You get them for free in game. Takes about 15-20 mins per key but waste of gold / gems if anyone is actually buying them for the crap they give.

I don't want any of this crap. All I would like to see discounted is character slots, bag slots, and bank slots. Nothing else is worth buying except maybe the GW1 Skins.

more junk. They can't sell this stuff at regular price and will realize even discounted no one wants it.

I purchased a bundle of the boxes of fun for Pink Day last month, and they were a pretty big hit with the crowd. Sure, they aren't ideal for everyday situations, but they're nice to have once a special event rolls around.

Yeahhhhh... no... I'll pass!

I'm pretty confident that Anet would have raked in far more cash if they had only offered discounted character slots this weekend instead of the 9 items they offered.  I felt absolutely no desire to give them any money and I doubt I'm alone.  Offering character slots or other items people actually wanted would have changed that.  It makes me wonder if they are sitting over there with their fingers stuck in their ears going "lalalalalalalaaaa!" or something.  They obviously want money... why are they refusing to offer stuff we actually want to spend money on?  I don't know many people that buy stuff they didn't really want to begin with just because it's discounted. :unsure:

Time still has a value, and in those 15-20 mins I can do a dungeon runs which nets more than a key so it isn't even worth it imo.

Point is, I would think keys are one of the most bought items, probably just a desillusion at my side.. :P
