Is that untrue? Surely NI could have said that the version being auctioned was download only, to avoid this sort of confusion.
Why should you or I suppose it is not a download version?!! If they sell it as a download version?!!
I'm completely with you if the product is only a box version (like before), but it is already sold as a download version, what's strange in that?
I didn't make any assumptions, but it seems that the person who made the winning bid did. If it had been made clear it was download only, he has stayed he would not have made his (fairly substantial) winning bid.
It is not NI fault neither Luftrum. Here from the first page:
Donating: Native Instruments would love to participate. They are offering 2 x Komplete Ultimate licenses.
Where do you see something indicate a box version? It is the bidder responsibility to ask. Did he ask if the version is download or boxed? So, why it must be NI or Luftrum fault that there is no 'clear' wording about the download?! Why it is not the bidder fault that he didn't check before bidding?!
Usually we ask to be sure of something before bidding, right? Not assuming! (and then blame the others for not being clear!!).
Anyway, this will bring only negative impact on the charity and this is why I'm sad. I'm thinking of next year, will NI be kind and participate?
