I cant even remember what i paid for lifetime/unlimited, i dont think it was much, but it was definetly worth it. Coming up to 7 years as a paid member, and have had no regrets, but i have had the odd tantrum, even got banned once, but after i apologised everything got sorted.
I think thats the key, if people get a bit upset, maybe throw a tantrum, if they sincerly apologise after it should make up. We forget the CH team are real people too somtimes, not the sleepless slave workers they appear to be.
We are all people, we all get upset sometimes, ive seem members and ch staff all have wobbly moments, pwiz loves his little rants, thats part of his charm.
Sometimes though, when we get so used to usign a trainer only for it to stop workign because a game has been retired, its really annoying, its not ch team's fault, its just the way thigns are with all the patchign and anti cheat systems inplace.
Back when everything was offline, no auto patching, where msot games actually had built in cheats. I dont get why game developers went from activly encouraging cheaters by putting command/console cheats in, to activly punishing cheaters.
I use to not buy a game until a trainer had already been made for it, but with all the preorder dlc and such, its not as easy anymore.
So thats that, while whiners are annoying, we all whine about somethign at some point, so we cant get all high and mighty when someoen does, jsut let them cool off, and apologize, only if they show no remorce, and seem to almost be trolling should harsher measures be used.
Thanks for all your tireless work CH'ers
