Is woot handling the TREASURE HUNT right by cancelling orders?
First, let us apologize for this. There were indeed cheaters that worked out the URL early. Those sales happened VERY fast and we stopped the sale. That's why you are seeing Sold Out. We are going to cancel all those orders.
Second, we can identify the first 200 users who hit the custom URL after the final piece launched. These are the users who should have gotten a Buccaneers of Caribbean (our quantity was 200). We are working out how to make things right for the "Honest 200". As always, that represents only a very small percentage of customers who wanted a Buccaneers of Caribbean but it was our intent that you all have a fighting chance.
So please put down the torches, take a calming breath and go ahead and go to bed. Some of you will get good news tomorrow.
And we're making sure that this cannot happen again with tomorrow's map. Please give us another chance. Thanks.
