WildStar is in the Humble E3 Bundle… for non-players

All that we're saying is give Nexus a chance.

Getting WildStar for only a couple of dollars seems like a pretty solid deal, especially when that means an extra 30 days of game time. Sure, the game is going free-to-play, but it’s not there yet. But existing players who decided to jump on the Humble Bundle’s E3 ticket bundle just for that code got a bit of a surprise when the WildStar portion went from being a bonus code that could be applied to an existing account to being for new players only.

Images of a cached version of the promotion announcement state that the codes can be applied to existing accounts, while the current page states the opposite. It’s unclear whether this is a sudden switcheroo or a similar change was made on the Humble store, but after players have spent the past few months being encouraged to pick up more copies, it’s a bit of an unexpected shift.

deekay_zero BalsBigBrother Rozyn Greaterdivinity what they did was correct the mistake and nothing more or less than that.  A more PR savvy company than Carbine appear to be would have offered an apology too but this is Carbine we are discussing. 
As for putting implications into mouths far as i can see you are the one who has been using the shady word more than most anyone in these here comments.  So kettle pot black.    :-P 
I really am done now it’s gone 2am for me and I am pretty exhausted so continuing this would probably not end well. 
Thanks for the discussion DK and I will just agree to disagree with you.  Take care and hope you have a pleasant evening / night :-)

deekay_zero BalsBigBrother Rozyn Greaterdivinity obfuscation yay o/  What does how a restaurant deals with something have to do with this?  Nothing, different service sector with different expectations for said services and what they do when things are wrong.

Spent enough time on this but I will leave a quote that I think is appropriate for this situation:
 “Many journalists* have fallen for the conspiracy theory of government*. I
do assure you that they would produce more accurate work if they adhered
to the cock-up theory.” 
Sir Bernard Ingram (1985)

*substitute commenter and Carbine and I hope you get the idea

Xephyr BalsBigBrother Heh well this is why I am not really too fussed either as I basically got it for the World of Warships beta / Company of Heroes,  But a second WS account is a nice bonus too /shrugs

BalsBigBrother Xephyr Nah I didn’t really buy the bundle for Wildstar, I bought it mostly for Psychonauts and the Twitch turbo. While it rubs me the wrong way and I’m a tiny bit disappointed with Carbine ultimately I don’t really care that much, I’m having fun playing Psychonauts. :)

This is a pretty awesome deal for anyone the slightest bit curious about Wildstar.  Keep in mind that this will also give you some benefits when the game goes F2P, like more character slots, bank storage, and housing decor.

It actually leaves me a bit curious how they’re planning to make money when the game goes F2P with how much they’re just giving away, even compared to other F2P MMOs.

In fact, I just did!
