What's worse, is all the people defending this decision, are people that have already spent hundreds.
The reason for their fanboyism is completely contradictory.
I spent 50$ once, which is the price of a standard game, plus another pack which was a gift from my girlfriend.
People have to understand that GGG can't invite everybody at once. So they either do it totally randomly and piss off some of the people who spent hundreds and thousands, or invite only people who spent hundreds and thousands and piss off players who can't afford a lot, or do both partially and piss off both... Either way the players too stupid to understand/wait will be pissed off and there is nothing GGG can do against it.
