Just a thought I had and wanted to share. What if Nvidia and AIB partners knew about the BOTs and released a small quantity to etailers so they would snag those up and the PC master race would then get mad (as we did). Then we would kill any chance of the scalpers being able to sell their stock pile of cards by using bots to inflate the prices making them unattainable and the scalpers with no money to buy any more cards for the real release this week. Just something to think about while I sit here pushing F5.

    I think etailers would release as many as they had on hand.

    I thought of the same strategy, it must be a pretty easy strategy to come up with. The only problem is that it might make Nvidia look like an unreliable company, but it's better than allowing botters.

    What if I said that one's entire life had been decided by fate? That every single one of your actions, from the minute to the monumental, stemmed not from your own choices, but had already been decided upon? That life being a journey of limitless possibilities was but an illusion, and no matter how fiercely man struggled, he stood at the mercy of a long-established path? The wealthy shall know their riches. The needy shall starve on the streets. The wicked shall be wicked, the righteous just. The beautiful, the hideous, the strong, the frail, the fortunate, the miserable... and finally, the victors and the defeated. What if I said that all such things had been carved into stone eons ago, allowing for no divergence? If so, sinners have nothing to answer for, nor do saints have any true virtue to their name. What if I said that not a single action is carried out of one's own volition, but had been decided long ago? That we are merely adrift in the current of time? Tell me, would yo

    imagine if it really were an nvidia competitor that're powering most of these bots. that would be very odd, i wonder if that would even be legal?

    they knew there would be bots, they just dont care. The only reason they pretend to care is because they have to, to stay in a positive light. Look up the conflict theory in sociology.

    Sadly as has been said money is money to corporations. Enough anger does force some action but generally as long as they are profiting companies are happy
