Fallout 76 support tickets and personal identifying information have been sent to a play by mistake includes home address, email and more.
isn't this kinda very very bad?
Yes...yes it is.
seriously...somebody...anybody ...SUE THE HELL OUT OF BETHESDA ALREADY!
@badz149 While i understand that yea, it is a terrible thing. There really isnt a valid reason to sue them over it.
@Tsuru WHAT? remember the PSN fiasco 2011? there were no solid evidence for any leak of actual info and credit card got hacked but Sony shut down PSN and issued warnings anyway and urged users to changed their credit card and so on but gamers were up in hands trolling and even going as far as trying to sue them for it. so what's different this time? this is personal data actually sent out to strangers. why is it "isnt a valid reason to sue them over it" to you??
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! This dumpster fire just gets more and more entertaining!
Oh dear god... Can they not rid this game and pretend it never happened
I wonder how many accounts were compromised
probably 0. Why would that compromise their account?
And yet people will still flock to buy their next game....
Isn't this a personal data leak? They should've been more careful with those already badly treated customers. Fallout 76's Fallout is a total crap storm!
When you dox your own customers after your own mistake/bad business practice. 12 Days of Bethesda F*ck Ups keeps on giving (or taking)
A few years ago, this would have been bad, Bethesda would have been sued to shit and lost consumer confidence. But now its catastrophic, with GDPR and the Canadian equivalent, Bethesda are facing an unlimited fine and legal action on top of the before mentioned things. Throw in the shitty way they've handled it, and all the previous fuck ups and this could very well be the end of the company.
It's just one massive problem after another, its been nonstop since the beta started, every week I find myself waking up expecting at least one problem related to the game. This is just sad now.
You realize the person doing the support for your ticket is probably your age and prone to f-ups...and you are bashing the company as a whole because of...common Fallout press.... lol. Let's blast it on SM. Not sure what's worse the original poster or the parrot whatever-mmo-site poster. Oh man. Can't make this shi7 up. BTW that's not "reaching out" via social media... not unless they offer direct live techsupport on social media (which they do not, they refer you to regular support EVERY TIME). Give me a break.
