The WarZ Team Blacklists Customers Asking For Refunds

The WarZ, and Hammerpoint Interactive, is blacklisting customers asking for a refund. (PC, The War Z)

I think the craziest thing is they may abandon the game completely in 6 months.

That's how cash grabs usually work. Sell them lemmings what they want to hear.

I guess I got my refund at the right time. I had to argue with them via Paypal but they finally gave it to me. Secret is proving your pc can't run the game. Then they proceeded to tell me my account is banned from purchasing the game forever. They decided to leave my account active too. Real genius on their end.

Sucks for the kid that eventually gets a gaming pc that can run the game, tries to come back to the game but panties ruffled butthurt dev says no.

A turds a turd, no matter how you sell it.
Shady business all around.

Do Not spend money on WarZ
To me it seems Hammerpoint is just using PC Gamers to set up WarZ console production funding!

I've always said since i first saw Warz that it seemed like a console game and not a PC Game and to hear all the GROSS and POOR customer Service complaints makes me believe Hammerpoint does not care!

The Game is buggy and full of HACKERS! People are spending money and being Hacked and or Banned with no refunds, the Game is Extremely set-up to be Pay to Win, and Hammerpoint isn't addressing these issues!

I just feel they are grabbing PC Gamers money to finance a console release!

*Warz has great potential and if released on a console with these problems corrected I feel Warz console will be great BUT........as a PC Gamer i just can't see spending money on this game with all it's issues and DayZ sitting right there!

Warz is not as demanding system spec wise or as hardcore gameplay wise as Dayz so more casual gamers may enjoy it! Check it out....but be careful spending money on it!

If these reports say anything, it is to be careful with your money with this company right now. You're right.

this why they are not getting any of my money. I've played a lot of f2p games in my day but none did anything like this

I hope games like the war z and hopefully day z do come to
Consoles.
RuperttheBear  +   699d ago
After all that's been reported on War Z you still want it on consoles?
WarPonyDestroyer  +   699d ago
Dayz sure. Their Dev team should get all the accolades for bringing this game genre to the masses.

I bought it and trying to get a refund for a week now... and still don't have a response.

DO NOT buy WarZ. Support is AWFUL, and that game isn't getting as much relevant updates as it should... Just saying this because, DayZ is on the corner and it looks much more trustworthy.
Sketchy_Galore  +   699d ago
No trustworthy and decent company ever puts out such a blatant rip off of a game. It should be clear from the fact that their game is simply piggybacking on another successful game even down to the name that these are sneaky people only interested in making a quick buck and completely lacking any kind of passion or respect for the medium.
Strongmad  +   699d ago
Please get some upto date info, the name is a derivitive of war inc and was not a dayz cash in tho a diferent name should have been chosen. The advanced stage of the alpha showed that it was not badwaggon hop for dayz hype. If you were active on the forums you see how passionate the developers are about this project and far from making a quick buck and as for "having no respect for the medium".. really say that outloud and see how you sound buddy.

I played dayz and plan to pickup the standalone and am still enjoying warz, people asking for refunds just because thay dont like the game shows the warped expectant mentality of the average gamer.

Alphas and betas acces used to a be a privelidge and the testers were passionate and enthusiatic.

Now its ruined by people who dont know and shit and expect the world.

are you really this naive or an employee of Hammerpoint ? Seriously.

You all are talking BS, This negativity is all spewing from a single disgruntled ex employee and I verymuch doubt has much truth

The game is still in alpha and you are whineing like its retail. Hammer point are doing a good job IMO and I was happy for them to have my money and continue to do so.

As banning due to asking for refunds, Id like to see some proof but as usual its hearsay promoted as fact ... which is the norm for N4G.

People just want something to hate and complain about.

Good thing I didn't spend any money on The War Z, I just played the trial. The game runs like shit (on my comp anyway), tons of hackers, false screenshots, and shitty support. It's obvious that this was a cheap cash-in after seeing DayZ blow up, Hammerpoint is just scamming people.
