You had PREVIOUSLY given the grace period where "everyone got a little more."
And now: "its a genuine race."
This means it is NOT the same as the past months. Period.
You should not be saying that it is going to be the same when it is actually changing...as in, the grace period is being removed.
It would have been completely fine to say, "Ronin is staying for the upcoming month. One change to the promotion is that we will now be enforcing the max-number of players limits. So far, we have not done that. We will be adding a page on our website that will update everyone as to how many players have reached which level so that everyone knows. This will begin with the start of the new Ronin promo on August 1."
See? Simple. And lets everyone know. Instead of telling them that it is going to continue the exact same way as before when, actually, it isn't.
I don't think this is a giant deal or anything. I'm pretty forgiving of Lock mis-speaking on their own promos as are a lot of others I believe. But I do think you can learn from this. You just need to be careful on saying things such as it being the exact same when Lock had actually already decided on a change.
I seriously can't believe I need to directly advance the argument that "making a change means it is not exactly the same."
But you seem to actually be arguing, "we did keep it the same....all we did was make a change."
