a company wanting people to play their game???   

 

how positively SHOCKING!!!

 

srsly, it's a nice thing for WG to be doing, and a decent game is just PRINTING credits and xp.   Some people would be unhappy to be hung with a new rope.   sheesh.  :facepalm:

Some people have their heads so far up their own behinds that they think a company taking advantage of a bad situation for monetary gain is a nice thing.

Well, you should pull it out once in a while.

I suspect our friend is unhappy with the free gift because he is unable to transfer it to ships/tanks but will actually (gasp) have to play planes.

Germain may refer to:

 

germane

 adjective
ger·​mane | \ (ˌ)jər-ˈmān  \

Definition of germane

 

1being at once relevant and appropriate FITTING
omit details that are not germane to the discussion
2: obsolete closely akin

 

Ok got it.  

 

The poster doesn't know the definition of germaine nor how to spell German.  I will use less complicated words next time. 

 

So instead of using germaine in my post, I should have used "has nothing to do with the subject at hand" instead.

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

Personally I would like to thank Bubba for the grammar lesson & clearing up that the "gift" is in fact bait from WG to get people to play their games while they are stuck at home & maybe break out the credit card while you're at it.

 

Yes, under your definition, just about anything that might entice you to do something is "bait".  The stuff is everywhere.  Just think of how much "bait" you've gobbled up during the Christmas season, just blatant attempts to win your good graces or affection, birthdays, weddings, free stuff designed to get you to do this or that.  

 

I think we should have a movement to correctly label these things like Christmas Bait, and Birthday Bait, or Wedding Bait.  Maybe some common expressions like "Bait from the heart" or "the Bait of Love", maybe the "Bait of Compassion" or the "Bait of Music".  I mean, literally, it's EVERYWHERE.

Hang on, maybe there's a vaild point here being made that is being obscured. And Wg has stated publicly that they "want people playing their game". No surprise there. But it does seem suspicious that when numerous posts and pilots appear to converge on an idea, they listen. Not that it's right, or a godd way to do business, because there are better ways of treating customers, instead of reacting to situations perhaps forethought, instead of waiting for public pressure, they could have had some foresight.

 

Anyway, we are playing their game, and likely spending money. But not just WoWP. Be careful. Remember, it"s not real. Food, water, shelter. This is real.

You forgot toilet paper.  I think it goes: Toilet Paper, food, water, shelter.

I could be wrong, but googling germaine gives this example:

 

English

Proper noun

Germaine

  1. A surname, a variant of Germain.
  2. A male given name from Latin, in modern use transferred back from the surname.
  3. A female given name from Latin transferred from the surname or borrowed from modern French.

 

Whereas I presumed you wanted to use germane without the i originally and that it was misread as German, the nationality?

 

Let the innocuous banter continue please...
