Reports from multiple people have come in that Blizzard Entertainment is banning users on their official forum for helping other people with Warcraft 3 Reforged refunds.
Blizzard at it again lol
Blizz and Bethesda were like two studios that everyone loved and has now changed, no? This is just sketchy.
This whole reptilian invasion thing is starting to sound a little less crazy
They are being run by their ex CFO if I am not wrong. They are only about money now nothing else.
You think you do but you don't, I expect nothing less from a company ran by someone who said such an arrogant statement.
the game itself is a bad remaster work, that's why people refunded it I'd rather play the original than this
Blizzard, years ago, was one of the most loved developers out there. They were the CDPR of the time. Now, they're just soulless, terrible scumbags. Funny and sad how time and money change things.
Oh dear Blizzard....
Blizzard seems to be banning everyone for one reason or another these days. Even Luke from Linus Tech Tips just got banned for a reason that he can't figure out, and Blizzard wont even give him the reason. I'm not sure why anyone would want to deal with this company.
My WoW account got banned years ago for phishing at a time when I wasn't even subscribed. To this day they still refuse to reactivate it.
Man Blizzard you can really go F yourselves. They really gone downhill lately and now when I look at them, all I see is a greedy company that gives no f**ks to its community. They literally seem to only care about money now.
Nah....before they merged with Activision they didn't do crap like this.
It's that Activision cancer spreading.
Dear Blizzard WTF?
That is some EA level shit Blizzard is pulling
Well, I mean, they are Activision after all, so they really aren't that different.
Can't believe I am even saying it but not even EA are that bad. They are the embodiment of shameless greed in the gaming industry but they at least have a fair simple and robust refund system.
All this bad behavior by seemingly every big name in gaming has put EA into a different light. I don't think as negatively of them, specifically, anymore -- just everyone.
You know the world has gone to sh!t when...
Anybody that believes this is a moron.
Hi J. Allen Brack. Care to provide backup to your claim?
I don't put it past Blizzard at this point, but I'm definitely going to need some solid evidence that proves this. Especially when this very article shows none, whatsoever, and has a quote like this: "Note that some people may have said some inapropriate things to get the banhammer, but I saw many posts about refunds getting flagged for no reason in the first two hours of the launch."
Why would anyone ever buy another Blizzard game? Seriously.
Based off this article alone I'm gonna preserve judgement on whether this is true or not. What you see in this article is a banned user complaining about what they say they got banned for. But is there any investigation into their other posts on this forum, assuming they haven't been deleted by Blizzard mods? Without being privy to see their other posts, who knows what else they could've done to get banned. Disclaimer: Never played a Blizzard game so there's no bias here.
You are not wrong. Pretty thin evidence to base an article on -- however, the news still seems to be coming from multiple sources
As much as I want to play Diablo 4, I’ll probably prioritizing Torchlight 3 instead. I absolutely refuse to support Blizzard until they become human again.
Well see ya on diablo 4 release date next talks big game till it releases be first to buy it
You never decided to not buy a game? It's not that rare of a thing.
Said the same thing about CoD after MW3, and I haven't bought one since. So, take your verbal diarrhea elsewhere.
Lost Ark looks like Diablo 5. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Dude, that looks amazing.
The love of money is the root of all evil. Greed has poisoned mens souls
Here are some real Blizzard Shenanigans. With all this Reforged hype/hate, I decide that I'm going to go play Warcraft 3 Legacy again. It is nowhere to be found on any drive on my PC. I only found shortcuts that pointed to nothing. Blizzard silently uninstalled it. So that I found my purchase on Battle.net from my browser, I go and download it, so I thought. It makes me download the Reforged client. So now I have to run the game from the buggy mess that is the new client. Also, Blizzard changed their ToS regarding the world editor so that they now completely own anything anybody makes with their editor. They are still salty after the whole Dota catastrophe. Oh yeah, Diablo Immortal, there's that.
Blizzard uninstalled your copy of an old game? Lol.
It deleted my old warcraft 3 folder, then downloaded the new Reforged client and that is the only way to play it. What's so hard to understand about that? LMAO!
Are you seriously claiming that Blizzard uninstalled a game from YOUR computer?
Obviously comprehension isn't your thing.
No. Your writing skills are just that bad. You literally described a situation in which Blizzard uninstalled a game from your computer. In fact, you even said exactly that: "Blizzard silently uninstalled it" You say this after saying that you tried to play an old game but it was no where to be found on your drive. Then you had to download the Reforged client on their site. So basically, if you want people to COMPREHEND what you are saying, then maybe you should learn how to write in an understandable way.
That's what I said. Even my reply is a summarized version of my original comment. Your words describe what I had already said but you are trying to sound like you made some kind of sophisticated discernment between the two. I'm done arguing with a fool because people from a distance can't tell who is who. *mic drop*, son.
Add Blizzard to the list, when will customers see through all the bullshit these companies perpetuate. All it takes is an announcement of a desired game and all is forgiven. I've got mates that still defend BETHESDA, Bioware and other trash devs. Blows my mind. These big devs/publishers are scumbags on every level.
Ah yes, add them to the list. Yes, they're beyond redemption so let's add them to my cancel culture list to give me that feeling I'm making a real difference in the world where everyone else is not. You are a fool.
While I agree that cancel culture is problematic these days... Blizzard deserves it at this point. Besides I didn't see anywhere in that post what they meant by adding them to the list. He could have meant anything, and didn't explicitly say to boycott them. Could have simply meant add to the list of greedy corporations, and honestly they have filled that spot in my list a long ass time ago. He has valid points. They announced two games and mostly everyone forgot all the trash they've been flinging at their customers. He's not a fool, no. We're all fools that fall for these stupid tricks. Maybe not you or I, but people like us that visit sites like this and have discussions are the minority.
Rebel - label it all you like (pffft 'cancel culture') only dipshits do that. The fact is - this is a multi-billion dollar company that has released a broken product that wouldn't cost that much to make. And the downgraded are there for all to see. Making a difference? Nope just not supporting sub par games - nothing wrong with that.
“ Nope just not supporting sub par games - nothing wrong with that.” Yep, you’re right. But a company like Blizzard have how many different projects and dev teams? Im sure they’re all not contributing to these sub par games. Just because they had a broken game released doesnt mean these companies cannot learn from it and improve their quality next time around. But you do you man. Add them to your list and only deal with absolutes if it makes life easier.
Really? One of the most respected, profitable devs suddenly forgets how to make games? They've been this for 3+ decades, Activision 4+ decades. Where's the accountability? Stop being an apologist, they don't need it.
Just dispute the charge with your credit card company. Hmm time to torrent more Blizzard games LMAO. I already torrrented Starcraft 2 and the two after that one. Let me see what else I can take from you :D https://eu.battle.net/suppo... Refund link
Im worried fir Diablo IV
You're not the only one
Shit game, Shit company
Xi Jinping approves!
I seriously hate gaming "news". This is just the worst of exaggeration. First of all, there was just a single person who said they were banned. So, that's just one user. That isn't "users" as the headline makes out. Secondly, there's no proof of their original post. He could have violated any of their rules. Maybe he said "Here's how you get a refund for this piece of shit game." which would get him banned.
*laughs in Chinese*
what a trash company
The solution to these actions is in our pockets. Using it will change everything.
Where are our ddossers and hacktivists when you need em..
Blizzard Games are kinda lame anyway.
Lol can blizzard just stop shooting themselves in the foot already
Blizzard : A severe snowstorm Activision Blizzard : A severe s***storm. SIMPLE.
They will never learn when pepole buy their brand and not games. If there is any lesson to learn from the past two years in gaming Stop blindly buying games at launch.
