Topic: Class Action Suit against OGP & SuperRewa
Posted: Sep 05 2012 at 8:48pm
This is a thread made to collect people in order to start a Class Action Suit against OGPlanet & SuperRewards for Flatulent and False Advertising.

I know this thread will most likely disappear in due time, so I am asking someone with expertise in php forums to open up a free discussion board somewhere so all the name collecting and evidence collection can happen without interruption. Thank you.

Here are some facts I have to present.


The offer clearly says 1555 Astros awarded upon completion

OGP even advertised the new and VERY MUCH improved Free Astro offers on the SDGO facebook page

Even the GM advertised it Here

Got said 1555 Astros

The confirmation email

The removed amount -1418

Doing the math 1555-1418 = 137 Astros

We were promised 1555 Astros for giving our personal information (name, address, postal code) and credit card information not 137 Astros. If this is not fraudulent and false advertising then what is?

Update1:
OGP has posted an "apology"

Here

I don't see any sincerity in what happened here. We were lied to and then ripped of our promised reward without any form of compensation. That is not being sincere about their mistake.

I'd hold off on something like this until OGP gives an official announcement on what they're going to do about all of this. (Unless they already did and I missed it)

Wasn't 137 around the number that those offers used to give?

It could just be an accident or a glitch? Do we have to take it this far?

http://www.ogplanet.com/news/ogp/notice/7115/view.og

and the ogp official announcement about this

personally i did not lose anything because of this
(mainly not having the blockbuster/netflix offer in super rewards)
but i will just add something here

by browsing through the threads, apparently users whom gained astro via free astro offers had their astros severely cut down, including the "genuine" astros which they have payed for

The fact is that no one seems willing to wait long enough for the problem to be fixed before they start flipping tables and burning matresses.

As it is right now, without any form of compensation it is just false advertising.

We should take it far. OGPlanet is just screwing with us at this point.

i lost 7 astros

should i get compensated as well?

Western canada doesnt get blockbuster at all or uber netflix (mine was, has been, always has been, at few hundreds).

I demand compensation for racism against canadians, since americans get better offers.

Y'know, there's a major flaw to your plan.

The post said "New and Improved Astro Offers". Not "Blockbuster and Netflix are offering a ton of Astros go stock up now!" If they had advertised Blockbuster and Netflix, then YES, we'd have a problem. Instead, they just said New and Improved Astro Offers.

Sheesh.

To be honest this would be a form of unfair Patriosm, which it is not. Can't really control the fact that Netflix and Blockbuster don't run in Canada.

netflix and blockbuster is both in canada if thats what you were saying.

Theres only one video offer everyday for the canadian free offers, whereas us gets like 3-4 every 5 hours or so? not sure, heard it from someone.

Note: Theres a Netflix offer for me as well, but it wasn't at 1.xk it was like 200-300

Sad to say but Ashura here is correct when Rollup and the FB Page advertised "NEW" Offers it ment the Rumble Fighter one((probably gonna be a La tale etc. later)) the Blockbuster and Netflix offers have been around for along time.

I'm not trying to defend OGP I'm just pointing out a small hole that may come up in your lawsuit ((if you go through with it))

OGP cant just go ahead and take purchased astros without compensating people for their purchase. thats called stealing OGP, and yes its against the law

lol what server? TW?

TW is horrible and KR is sooo hard to get in, not to mention illegal (since you fake a KSSN (unless you are korean)).

and CN is super cash based, there are no normal events, Japan is weird, thailand is too special text, SEA is.... considerable...... but its money heavy.
