They don't deserve to demand an unlivable amount of a paycheck for a "maybe".
Why is there no ESO plus free 6 crates event? If this is the replacement for that mechanic then I'm extremely disappointed. First the 100k gold replacement for this month instead of more free crates and not to mention the full 30 days cycle.
I'm telling you people. If you keep biting this, we'll get less & less free stuffs and even more paid gambling in the future. As you can see, we can already feel the effects. They've already put more exclusive stuffs at a higher gem price inside RNG gambling.
Anyway, before you panic, we'll probably get another ESO+ event before these crates go away.
Real Money Gatchapon system
If actually tested in any court case, that will hold as much water as an upside down bucket since they sell that "virtual currency" directly for money.
The correct answer to the post you quoted, if you wanted to avoid that discussion, was the ignore the post completely, just like the developers do and anybody with any public relations experience will do when they say "no comment" to a direct easy to answer question.
The gem only pet makes some sense. We've been getting a lot of free gems from twitch and monthly rewards and they want to remove some of that from the system. Seems ok to me.
Except 2/3 of their player base has been excluded day one from the twitch rewards. Seems pretty crappy in the end if you ask me.

And how and when I'll get this 3 free Hollowjack crates?
The only thing i had remote interest in was the Hallowjack Netch pet...but to make it gems only?? Why do you keep finding ways for us NOT to throw money at you, if this were crowns i'd be all over it, but i refuse to ever buy into gambling crates. So much for my favorite season to buy items.
