Yes, advertising a fancy looking canvas bag and then swapping it for a cheap looking nylon bag is dirty. And it's even worse when the Corporate powers that be decide that instead of fessing up to it, they were just going to wait and see. (Easier to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission concept I suppose?) And yes Offering only 500 Atoms does not make up for the fact that $5 is not how much it would cost to buy the bag advertised.
But for the love of donuts, STOP saying that you spent $200 on a bag. That's not how it works.
- Tricentennial Version – $90 (It's a steel book after all)
- Glow in the Dark Map – $20 (Redbubble large size)
- 24 Plastic Miniatures ~ $10 (user Belyal reports that these are more akin to Army men quality. Saying $10 for IP)
- Power Armor Helmet ~ $60 (Wearable, exclusive item)
Now let's get to the bag.
Assuming this $199 price point is a "deal" a true canvas bag would probably cost $25 or so to purchase on it's own. So advertising such a bag in a $199 bundle based on the rough estimate prices of everything else above, you'd be getting the bag for $10.
As the math shows, when you add up everything besides the bag you're probably around 180-190 dollars. So yes, offering $5 to make up for 10-20 dollars of value is cheap, it's not offering $5 for $200 value which so many people seem to be happy to harp on.
I get it, you're upset, but this type of sensationalism is unintelligent and only fuels the self destructive fire. BGS Corporate overlords have some explaining and apologizing to do, but quit overreacting that your $199 is gone to waste because you got a $5 bag instead of a $25 bag.
EDIT I am not defending them and switching out bags without telling anyone is false advertisement (I also do not think 500 atoms is enough, even based just on my math above), I'm just trying to put things into perspective. the crappy thin nylon bag does not diminish the quality of the other items you received. and the other items you received still hold their value.
