Is Games Workshop done with "Incoming!" Emails?
May 17, 2011 Commissar Ploss
Got an odd bit of rumour that has just surfaced, and i thought i should share it with you all. Seems there’s talk that GW will be doing away with their Incoming! emails and other such rumour-tastic propaganda. Heretofore substituting the aforementioned with absolute bup-kis until a week prior to a release date for a specific item. Here is the OR (Original Rumour). Source is 4chan /tg/ boards. Grain of salt suggested…
“Basically, GW have decided that starting soon, nobody and that means absolutely nobody, other than the guys who deal with the products etc, will know what is in the pipework or being released until 1 WEEK before it’s actual release date. There will no longer be any incoming emails or the like, apparently the first that anyone will know of anything will be on the back page of WD. Which looks like releases will be tied into the same day that WD is released bearing in mind that subscribers get it around a week early.
Now before you all post pictures of salt cellars etc, I shall tell you where I heard this info. Today GW held it’s National Managers Meeting at GW HQ in Nottingham, and the source of this was actually present at the meeting. So bearing in mind it came from the head honchos at GW, and was announced to each and every member of GW management from across the country, please refrain from the salt jokes please.”
Discuss it how you will. I will ask around and see if i can get a more thorough explanation. We deserve one, and i know some people. I’ll keep you updated.
