BTW Humble might be sending a coupon for 4 months of Choice (non-pausable as per new guidelines) for $32, but only, to make the story short, if you are a Classic squatter.
So check your inbox and spam if you, too, abuse the Pause button.
There is no way I’m sinking $32 into Choice now that promotions can no longer be paused, and with no knowledge of what’s in the pipeline.
However, it’s a small enough sum that a few of you might decide to go for the gamble.
Looking at the big picture, I wonder if this indication that a non-negligible portion of Classic users is more receptive to Choice whenever they get the $4 coupon.
FWIW this has swayed me occasionally, but it’s not like $4 off do much, if I care little about the games to begin with. So circling back to my previous point, committing blindly to 4 months might turn out to be a waste of money, rather than savings.
Not to belabor it, however there’s only been one, or perhaps two, instances of the $4 coupon being able to sway me twice in a row. So the chance of pulling the trick 4 times consecutively is suspiciously close to 0, given the past 17 months of Choice.
IOW, should there be certainly 2 bundles that can benefit from the $4 sway effect (possible), and zero that I would buy at $12, plus zero that I would buy at any price (realistic given track record), they’d still have me pay $32, instead of $24 or $20.
Of course, under the assumption of zero value for the games you don’t want, which might not hold true for many.
