I will not claim Daisy

Post by Harpooha » April 26th, 2021, 11:16 pm

I thought the whole idea behind this year’s charity pet was tone deaf and misguided.

I have no problem with MSF. The way this whole thing was handled was stupid. It encouraged players to wait for others to contribute while everyone reaps the reward. This is wrongheaded and personally offensive.

I enjoy collecting pets. But this was the biggest misstep since Graves. I have no intention of supporting this sort of nonsense.

I don’t have a problem if others claim Daisy. But I truly hope that this doesn’t become a template for future charity pets. Let us contribute and get the reward for it. Don’t reward everyone for the efforts of the contributors.

Don't hurt yourself for a protest no one will ever notice. Claim her while you can. Don't summon her if you are still angry. But don't cut off your nose to spite your face (or however that saying goes).

If you want to protest, do something that has a small chance of actually being noticed (emphasis on "small"), submit a suggestion with the reasons you don't like this new charity model.

For what its worth, I agree this new model sucks. Daisy is the best charity pet yet, I suspect if people had needed to make a donation to get her, that MSF would have received twice the donation. As it is now, all the free-loaders get rewarded.

Are we gatekeeping charity donations? Bonkers :lol:

The community donated, the community is rewarded.

Two million USD raised to support Doctors Without Borders. Two battle pets given away, each when the goal of 1 million in donations was reached. *Thinks for a moment* And, players free to not accept either pet, plus express their opinions across the web. Seems like a win/win/win/win situation to me.

Actually, the rewards were at 500.000 and 1.000.000, not 1M and 2M.

And the 500.000 reward was more a provocation than a reward, as it was directly taking the piss on serious collectors, because Bananas was kinda rare..

I contributed - I don't feel like other people getting a reward is somehow insulting to me.

I mean, that's pretty much my argument.

However, it's fine if you don't claim Daisy. I just disagree with the idea that it's somehow offensive if there's a group reward.
