As a longtime fan of Stardock games, I must say that this company has pissed me off twice this week!
First, they triple charged my pre-order to Elemental, causing my credit card to be frozen. Their idiot sales rep said that they were not charges but "actually only verification that the funds are available." Old Emily over there at Stardock failed to even account for the fact that I made one pre-order but was triple charged.
Second, Brad Wardell, who I HAD a lot of respect for had to go political. As a liberal, I would have preferred him to keep his political affiliation and his business separate. Whether I like it or not, I will have his political views in the back of my mind every time I ponder making an Impulse purchase.
I like to put my money where my mouth is, and I do not support right-wing conservative businesses when I can help it. Since I can help this, I am canceling my Elemental pre-order until Brad comes to his senses and take politics out of Stardock and gets back to making great games.
