some times ago, when you announced that Guild Wars 2 is now sold at reduced price, i was annoyed because I have bought the game pre-launched  and then you give special promotions to new buyers.

MY apology, :D

today I login to the game and there it was, in a chest waiting for me, 400 free gems. and loads more before that, of goodies.

So Thank you for thinking of your loyal customers/players.

Are you also mad if someone buys a TV one year after you cheaper than you did?
Lets start with bad analogies! ;D

That's a 5000 achievement point reward. The people that got it discounted will get that too.

The 400 free gems is a good thing. The gems will go straight to fine transmutation stones because those of us who worked so hard previously to get exotics and transmute to achieve our desired aesthetics will need to transmute AGAIN when ascended armor is out.

In the light of that I'm definitely thankful for the free gems, for better or for worse.

Got 5 level 80 transmutation stones out of one of the reward boxes.  Booya.

Everyone gets the same. Which is the beauty of achievement chests - it's not a lot, but at least everyone gets the same and you don't screw 80% of the playerbase to pursue that which 20 % got by favour of luck. ;)

You got t-stones out of achievement chests?  I didn't even know those were an option.  Are they random?

Though he meant Mystic Forge Stones. If not, then apparently not everyone gets the same rewards.

I'm pretty sure it was an achievement chest because I haven't opened any other boxes since I came back.

Quick note, TVs don't depreciate at the same level as video games. The same TV today can still have the same price a year from now, only a different model number and enclosure style sometimes.

You can basic and fine transmutation stones from daily chests or from map completions.  Assuming it wasn't from those, and you haven't opened an BLCs, then it may mean that achievement chests can contain them.  News to me...and my entire guild.
