    I think it would be a smart move to have an extra discount for those who own all the previous Arks.
    It would become a no-brainer for those who already own everything else and are questioning whether they need this, while also encouraging new customers to buy the other Arks on sale and take advantage of the offer on this one.

    They’re probably wagering that if you’ve bought 3 out of the 4 then there’s a good chance that you’ll buy number 4 too. Just a guess.

    It doesn't really show us any anything to be honest. I wish developers who do this kind of thing would have decent walkthroughs available as soon as they announce a product rather than waiting til just before the preorder offers finish. Never understood why they do that, makes no sense IMO.

    yep, would never purchase without a walkthrough.

    Release the trailer a week before the sale, build up hype and guessing at what it is, then release the walkthroughs on the same day as the sale.

    That's what got me.

    I had been on the fence with Exp D for my Arks as a front/first hack.

    Saw this and the Articulations and Features PDF,


    • The Front Row of the Metropolis Series
    • Focused Section Sizes

    Still hanging on for a BHCT WL deal.

    Disappointing not having the Loyalty discount. I think this is the the one I will pass on because with the other 3 Arks I can do so much already. With a Loyalty discount I probably would get it as there are some interesting articulations that I liked in the demo, and also the voices seem nice and diferent enough from the previous editions. But it is strange to say the least, to stop giving loyalty discounts on Ark 4... What is the message here? Loyalty is no longer valued? I don't seem to be the only one unhappy about this...

    Would you buy it at the same price if it already included a loyalty discount and would just cost 50 bucks more for everyone who doesn't own one of the previous Arks?

    Someone's gotta pay for the POWER LEGATO!

    Edit to add: this is how they handled the previous Arks. Loyalty got you 50€ off. So for those who have been buying Arks loyally this represents roughly a 17% increase in cost. It doesn't break the bank to be sure, but I also understand why people are irritated, especially with all the other unannounced policy changes OT is making with respect to sales and so forth. It's not like the company has been communicative about any of this. I mean that's their choice, but it's not the best customer relations.

    Well, seeing how I just bought 3 OT libraries recently, I would love to get it for free or a deep loyalty discount. :)

    I feel a certain sarcasm in your question, but I will disregard it. The answer is... I would buy it for 299, as I did for the previous 2 Arks that offered a loyalty discount.
    I would go as far as saying that the loyalty discount should be proportional to how many products you bought in the past, or at least how many of the Arks you bought before. That is how Strezov does it and I find it very fair. A person who bought 3 Arks should get bigger discount than one who bought only 1 ark, and so forth. In this way they are making the case that they no longer care about loyalty. It may be a subtle statement, but it certainly encourages me to look elsewhere at other developers that do care about loyalty. Or implement a no Loyalty system from the start. It is strange to give loyalty discounts for the first 3 Arks, and now drop it, with no good reason. They just said there is no loyalty discount on Ark 4, and made no effort to give at least some reasoning for it.
    Fine. It is their choice. And I also have my choice, which is to pass on Ark 4. Really love the first 3 Arks, but I think I'll live without the 4th..
    Unless they reveal what POWER LEGATO is all about and turns out to be a game changer. I doubt it though :)
