...nice if they said "to everyone who prepurchased the game originally, you will also get a free upgrade." It would be a sign of good faith towards the early adopters...
Why should they, they already have our money.
Since the ascended update they showed us that they dont care about their old playerbase especially not the gw1 one.
So why give a sign of good faith to the early supporters/prepurchasers ?
Its all about getting money fast from the new GW2/old MMO crowd. Happy Wintersday.
