    Yeah because some of those guys could buy them all if they were allowed to.

    Nope, there are unwritten anti trust laws in here. Although both Nathan and Jo are pretty easy going and quite cool, they are not naive. They know who the potential flippers are plus this place being a tightly knit community, some of us have long memories and put those who tend to abuse the trust on our shit list.

    I meant that some of them are wealthy enough to be able to buy them all if they were allowed to buy them all.

    i understood the gist of your post and I have nothing against those who whether through sheer hard work, astute life decisions, dedication and discipline or just pure dumb luck accumulated wealth. What I was referring to was something else:

    Some people scored 2 in totally legit ways. Nathan never prohibited anyone from owning more than one as long as they did not want 2 in the same sale in the same claim post: Some people scored an extra one by those heads up plays when Nathan sneaked one in every Friday Sale offering the left overs from the Blade Show 2020 (CPK didn’t attend). All of those were fair and square. I’m talking about those who scored by both playing and also by asking for proxy too. With 65 in total and many many more left out looking in, that sorta play wasn’t cool.

    I may be an opinionated ass but I also know that there are some hard feelings by those who missed out at the expense of the very few who chose to hoard. None of this would’ve mattered in preorders. Preorders mean the more the better for CPK and CPK’ers.

    Yes, I just meant that I believe a couple of the guys who made it today have snagged one of the weekly ones or got one from the first batch as well.

    Yeah, I was one of those that missed out. I also like the preorders so that everyone can have one or more. Sure, we have to wait for them but that is better than not getting one.

    Oh well, it was still fun trying to win one. I was actually pretty calm this time.

    There's so much great stuff coming that me missing out on Friday sales is really just determining what preorders I can afford!
