Flight School False Advertising Discussion

Ok so obviously there will be people that say "but they never said they would add it" but let's discuss the false advertising we seen in the flight school trailer. It was an obvious hype move, Rockstar blatantly mislead their fans just to build hype. The most annoying part about the trailer was the advertisement of the military clothing. They showed all that & even hinted at it by saying things like "women love men in uniform" & proceeded to show off all of these clothes which turned out to be completely irrelevant to the actual dlc.

 

So what's your honest opinion about it, do you think it was the right move or do you think Rockstar should have took a different approach?

Surely your trolling ;)

 

But I'll admit, I knew we wouldn't get the generals outfit anyway, but I was hoping for a jumpsuit aswell as the full on flight suit we got :(

Considering Flight School Outfits is a new category on the wardrobe i wouldn't dismiss that we may be getting more stuff eventually.

 

or did they add one more menu just for one outfit?

It was a marketing ploy.

 

Only those who fell for it, feel they were given false information.

I found it to be a bit misleading to include multiple shots of guys in digi-cam and none in the update. But then again this was the Flight School update, not a military update. So now a military update could include these clothes. I actually would be fine with body paint camo (thinking of Predator), but after the video I had my hopes for digi-cam.

People aren't ok with it a lot just stopped talking about it, but you still see heists threads every week.

I suppose if you feel that bad about it, you could ask for a refund of the money you paid for the update, OP.

R* is incompetent as f*ck. If the vending machine is out of Funyuns, then they don't work for the day.

It sounded like there would be more clothes options, but what trailer for anything isn't misleading?

 

Wishing will not make it so.

The Besra, Swift and the flight school itself were the only decent additions in this particular add-on. The Miljet is just a glorified Shamal/Luxor, which I truly regret dropping all that GTA$ on, and the vintage Coquette is downright ugly and handles like a stuck pig (in my opinion). I really don't understand why Rockstar built up all the hype with that trailer, all they managed to do was shoot themselves in the foot and make a majority of their fan base annoyed.

I was disappointed that we only got one suit out of it. From the trailer I was really hoping we would be getting a service dress uniform. I mean really why are you going to use NPCs that you never see anywhere in the game?

All & all I think it's a bullsh*t move whether you fall for it or not, the only reason why companies get away with it is because it's considered the "norm" so everyone is ok with it. But is it really?

Of course its bullsh*t. But it gets results. How, from a business standpoint, do you try and go against that?

 

The more eager and needy the consumer, the greater the length they will go to satiate said needs.

 

I hate it, but I also don't fall for it.

It's a business. They have to create hype and promote their product.

 

If they must use other material to promote the actual material it means the actual material is not good enough on it's own, and they know it.
