Quoted from Whysnow:
I am pretty sure that Stern is very comfortable with the troll roll.
This is kind of that new era of marketing style where it is cool to F with your customer base. Problem is that Stern comes off kind of prickish rather than "ha ha we got you" since they dont really engage with customers outside of these things.
Also, it really seems like they think any press is good press, when reality is the opposite in todays world.
The hard reality is that Stern trolls their customer base, continues to cheapen products, has recently gone radio silent on the many QC issues they are having (including no longer replacing parts that are defective within warranty? I hope this gets fixed ASAP), and steadily charges more for less.
It seems like everytime they make strides in one spot (hey look... sweet code update for a 2 year old game) they F up on the flip side (shit marketing PR and more and more defective pfs going out).
Not really true, according to you they are charging you less, much less. How long before you claim distros are calling you to take a SWHP for $2500?
