No, it states, in English, they are launching the "newest game update, the Shadowfell Conspiracy". Notice the lower case u and the comma following it and then the proper name?
Your semantics game you want to play will not work with anyone with a basic understanding of grammar.
If they had said they were loading the expansion, it would have been inaccurate, because there were other changes, and UPDATING, which occured, and people got, regardless of whether or not they bought the expansion.
Is it clear yet?
Wrong. McDonald's had a company policy requiring the coffee to be kept at a temperature that was INSANELY SCALDING hot and could actually cause third degree burns. If you look at pictures of that poor woman when she was in the hospital, it looks like she was attacked by a flesh eating virus the burns were so bad.
They had hundreds of complaints before which they disregarded. That fact, and the fact that the burns were literally life altering, caused the jury to award her (I think) the equivalent of one day of coffee sales (which was in the millions).
Now if you can prove pain and suffering and have thousands in medical bills due to this update, then swing away Merrill!
You will not require skin grafts.
That's the difference in temperature. MCD coffee wasn't coffee hot, it was branding iron hot. It's like selling liquid nitrogen as ice cream and then saying "They knew it was cold!"
MCD employees repeatedly tried to get the temp dropped and were not allowed to because the higher temp caused a stronger coffee smell to fill the room and that increased sales.
I'm not a fan of this expansion but come on this has been ran into the ground.
i think turbine can update you with better terminology verbally in the future... and verbally saying "No" to your refund idea, and that can even be free. Like all subscriptions, there is a price. Perhaps they can update you (or people that want a refund, or long term non-vip/non-premium players) with advertisements to help pay for the costs, after all magazines and other companies do that right? Come on guys, support the community & not be leeches. There are some roads we should be fortunate they have not gone down. Lets see the game advance positively for the community & do our share (if we truly support it). i would not be opposed to a rate increase....under the right conditions of course.
First, this is not the first time the woman in question has had experience with coffee. She was a member of the blue-hair brigade, and undoubtedly been drinking coffee for most of her adult life - like my grandparents. And you know how they drank their coffee? They drank it from a perculator. Mainly because that was one of THE MOST popular forms of making coffee. And most of them, over the years, drank it straight from the pot. Cripes, my Grandfather drank it almost directly from the pot.
The coffee served at McDonalds was NOT hotter than the coffee she has grown up drinking. Period.
Secondly, McDonalds gets hundreds of complaints a year about the fried not being salted enough. That's that happens when the have a gabazillion outlets worldwide. So that part about all the complaints they received is ABSOLUTELY PHONEY.
The coffee served at McDonalds at that time was not kept at a boiling-point temperature. In fact, those machines have specific temp limiters that prevent the coffee from getting too hot to the point it starts to boil. Otherwise the coffee burns, and tastes like ****. So, it was kept below the boiling point, most likely somewhere in the 180s (F).
This is well below the boiling point, which is the coffee that this woman was USED to drinking.
Coffee being brewed and served at optimal temperatures in the home really didn't happen until the Mr. Coffee machines started being produces in the 1970s. Until then it was either an electric or stove-top perculator. Virtually every house had one.
Maybe if she had immediately stopped the car, jumped out, and stripped nekked she wouldn;t have received the burns she did. But she didn't. Then again, if she hadn't spilled the coffee in her crotch in the first place, this wouldn't have happened to her. People seem to want to forget that fact.
Then again, any idiot who had drank coffee will tell you that you can get second-degree burns if you spill freshly-brewed coffee all over yourself. Never mind the fact that it was in the groin area where skin is far more sensitive than, say, your arms.
It isn't McDonald's responsibility that after decades of drinking boiling-hot coffee herself, she hadn't the brains to figure out that if you hold hot coffee in your crotch, it very well may spill, and if hot water spills on you, you're going to get burned. Duh.
Oh, and to continue to kick you while you're bent over, it is important to remember that most coffee out there - especially the type that is sold in some 99% of restaurants in the US - has to be brewed in the 185 - 205 degF range. Water can scald a human adult if gets over 100 defF. So, unless McDonalds wants to serve its coffee at temperatures that some 99.9999999999999% of coffee consumers would NEVER EVER DRINK, then there was no way they would serve that moron coffee at a temperature that wouldn't have burned her.
So, again, spare us the bleeding-heart, mindless propaganda.
This thread has gone a bit beyond ridiculous, and is now closed. Update 19 included the Shadowfell Conspiracy; the expansion was the main thrust of the update, but obviously there were lots of other changes in there as well. To the OP, I can't speak for our Account folks, but refund requests are handled by our Account Support team. You can call them or get in touch with them by visiting support.turbine.com.
