It's always nice to see communities rally together to help others.

Post a news article about D3 and RMT and have a 100(i'm exaggerating) people talk about how they're the devil and just a greedy corporation. Post 1.9 Million U.S dollars sent to Japan(right after the Make a Wish donation) and noone says anything.

I love the Massively community.

@arryn11 From what I've seen, that's the tendency of a large portion of the PC gaming community as a whole, not just Massively.

Probably because this was clearly motivated by altruism rather than greed?

@arryn11

because some of us can see beyond the PR stunts and arent as easily impressable as you

buy a couple minutes of TV advertisement for your game = $50m

donate $1.9m (that your players paid, NOT YOU) and get untold FREE publicity everywhere = priceless

for the rest, there's masterc...I mean, idiots cheering your laughtably obvious marketing campaigns as they were the purest form of altruism since Mother Teresa...

I was especially happy that 100% of the cost of this pet was donated, not just 50% like with the last two.

Not to belittle $5 per sale being given to charity, but the full price being given is still better. =D

@Eamil

So that means 190,000 were sold?

Not as many as the sparkly pony, which sent no money to charity :(

Very nice to see a gaming company (and the fans!) doing so much good.
