    i find it hard to believe that releasing something for 3 days will out sell a longer term offer. i get alot of people would buy EVERY one instead of the one they like if all were available but im not sure. 3 days is awful short

    The sale was one time only. That is why I bought the mount(otherwise I wouldnt because I'm still waiting for discounts in the shop to spend my crowns). I would feel offended if Zenimax put Leopard Mount on the sale again and immiadately cancel my subscription for being lied to.
    When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
    What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
    For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
    O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

    If it's limited they put psychological pressure on you to buy it, otherwise you would not be able to do it later and you'll regret not having done so.

    This the best way to soak money out of people

    Actually, if you read what they said, they said that it was "available for a limited time", but that this would not preclude them from possibly offering it for sale again at some later time:

    You folks whined to make this game b2p. Now, suffer the consequences.

    Limited time items are more likely to sell than permanent options.

    Google the f2p white paper. If more people read that there would be less whinging for every new mmorpg to go f2p/b2p.

    It's to make the purchase more tempting, leading you to believe you're going to have something exclusive.

    Problem with this (or the good news, if you missed it) is that nothing short of the actual limited production Imperial Edition (Physical) has remained exclusive.

    Give it enough time, you'll be able to purchase the same in store (probably cheaper than the original).

    Why?

    Same damn reason - give it some exclusivity for a period of time, gives those that have it 'value' and makes others want it more. Down the line, they'll put anything in there someone will pay for. If they don't they're losing money.

    ESO is about many things, losing $ generally isn't one of them.

    Exclusive/limited edition/limited time today, on sale for cheap, tomorrow. Count on it.
    Just because you don't like the way something is doesn't necessarily make it wrong...

    Earn it.

    The polka-dotted senche will return. Probably sooner rather than later, due to demand. I'd like to see if they can go several months, almost a year, before they break down, but my guess is that it (or a retex) will be back shortly after console.

    Allow me to say "goodbye" now as they announced, even before the sale was over, that it was limited time, not one time only.

    You make it sound like knowing what is happening suddenly makes it acceptable.
    That 'ESO Live' special on the day of the announcement is still horribly painful to watch.

    Pretty much. They all looked like they needed more fiber in their diet. :smile:

    For me, I like that they are limited. Cool things in game are much cooler when not everyone in game has them. Won't it be awesome 5 months down the road when you have a mount that others want but can't have? Not sure what all the backlash on this is all about...

    What makes you think that they wont keep bringing them back every couple months? Nowhere did it say they will never be offered again. It only says "limited time". So you wont have a mount noone else has access to unless you have the striped senche mount.
