I actually don't find them that expensive considering the large one is about the size of a medium Nox. If it wouldn't be for the international shipping and customs costs I'd surely get a set.

The slugs really tickle my fancy (it's a local thing, slug based humor is universally accepted) but with a Con in 7 days? I can't let that $50 out of my hands. And it sucks.
The list of things I want to write never stops growing. In fact I'm almost drowning in them! Help! *Glub, glub*

Are they that big ? Given the bottles of lube they are shown with in the pictures, they look like they are barely higher than said bottles once put vertically.

Probably going to get people mad at me for bringing this up in this topic (really, im not trying to stir up stuff) but....
To keep you from being salty this April Fools' Day


Anyone else feel a slight slap to the face with that, regarding whats happened this week?
Maybe that's not how they meant it, and I don't expect mods/CS to explain (as they may know just as much as us) but...damn.

Considering past April Fools' items, I honestly feel a bit let-down by the Slugs. They feel...I dunno...rushed somehow?

I don't really have a major slug or snail fetish, so not even the large one appeals to me (which I think is the coolest bit of it since you can use it for...purposes).

Also, this bit:
"To keep you from being salty this April Fools' Day,"

Ouch. Really? :eyeroll: I know it's just trying to play some humor, but don't do it at your own faithful customer's expenses'. That's like being spat in the face with recent events.

I already mentioned this. I gave it side-eye so hard. I know they probably don't mean it that way and are trying to be light-hearted, but dang. TACT, BD. Tact.

The big ones are 7inches around by 7 inches long, which is comparable, but the shape is so tapered I think it makes it seem smaller, you know? I think everyone would have been very happy with smaller ones at a smaller price. I really do love them, and think a giant slug would be hilarious, but oh well. :unamused:

I guess those are only the small ones. The chart below says the big one is 7" long and has a diameter of 2.5". That's as long and even thicker than what the measures on a medium Nox say.

Part of me feels like they knew what they were doing. Like....they should know taking away bruce/colors are bound to make people salty. Like really, I doubt they are oblivious. Their statement though, it's not blunt like "to distract you from our recent actions;SLUGS!" So we can't say "they meant it this way" when they could be saying "oh yeah don't be salty after being pranked all day, have slugs". Still pretty lacking in tact either way.

Oooh makes sense. I didn't look at the sizes, just the pics, but you're right about that.

And the "to keep you from being salty" is pretty obvious, imo.

I agree. It sort of makes it feel like they aren't taking the fact that many of us are upset seriously. :unamused: I dunno, I'm probably just seeing things from the bottom of the salt lake I've been swimming in.

Kingsley mentioned something about them being back in the Fallout promo and I think he was right. I don't remember seeing the pic myself, but a post or two mentioned them being on the Blast Radius CD page covering up the names of the songs that hadn't been released yet. So at minimum they've had them around since then, but whether they were planned for today since then who can say :mystery: It does feel pretty random, but then I guess all the previous years have been too lol.

I think most of us can agree that they've been doing some shitty things recently and throughout their history, but I think everyone is over-analyzing the statement.
"To keep you from being salty this April Fools' Day."
So I do believe they are referring to this as well:

No matter what they could have done today, it still would have pissed people off lmao.

Eh, same here. But hypothetically, shouldn't BD have some kind of clue what they're doing isn't making people happy? Like...I feel ridiculous when I seen that statement and immediately thought "Are they making a joke of what they've did?" Instead of "Oh thats....a thing"
I doubt that no one informs higher ups about our complaints, be it on the forums or through CS. We send in enough of them.
I also feel bad complaining about this because I feel like a buzzkill. But no word with what BD's course of action is, or why things are happening makes me pretty salty too....

I think most of us can agree the joke backfired on them anyway :stick: I mean these things are getting a pretty good deal of salt as it is lol.

They are going to make money regardless of how pissed off they make us, so from a business standpoint, they may as well make their jobs easier by offering less

Eh....maybe, maybe not. If they gave us insight but their recent actions I, personally, would be grateful. Maybe still complain, depends on what they said.
But yeah I probably would have complained in the topic if BD announced anything else they were selling today either way (instead of paying attention to the elephant in the room).

Whoops, meant to edit my original post. Sorry guys, my phone doesn't like me >_>

I feel like I missed something important? So what did BD do recently to upset people? Do people have links? Since people feel that the salty comment could be a dig?

I am really curious? What happened?

Ah! Interesting! I didn't know that. That's actually...kind of cool then. Sort of like an Easter Egg of sorts for those with good eyes (and knowledge of that promotion). (To be fair, I didn't pay close attention to the Dragontech stuff.)

So, I guess it's kind of neat they've made them available if they've been around since then, and now are purchasable as kind of a fallback (and joke!) to that. :dukeretro:

I'm in this camp. :unamused: Maybe I am just too cynical for my own good, but the first thing I thought of wasn't "oh hey, this is entirely an April Fools' joke! Including the text! It's entirely lighthearted and meant to be fun!" it was "...wait, are they making fun of us?"
