If you’re a real-time strategy (RTS) fan, chances are you’ve played Warcraft III (stylicized as Warcraft 3) when it was released way back in 2002. In case you haven’t, Blizzard Entertainment has released a remastered edition of Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos called Warcraft 3 Reforged.
Released yesterday, Warcraft 3 Reforged has been met with mostly negative feedback by gamers due to technical glitches, gameplay issues and more. If you’re one of the people who want a Warcraft 3 Reforged refund and need help, you might not want to talk about it in Blizzard’s official Warcraft forums.
Multiple reports have surfaced that Blizzard is actively banning people on the official Warcraft forums for helping other people get a Warcraft 3 Reforged refund!
Even on the Warcraft 3 subreddit, users have jumped in regarding this ban wave, with one user stating that Blizzard doesn’t want to talk about refunds on the forums in the first two hours of launch.
Checking the official Warcraft 3 forums, you’ll see a lot of disgruntled customers and gamers all chiming in with negativity.
We’ve contacted Blizzard about this and will update the post if we hear anything back.
While some might argue that Blizzard has the right to do this given it is happening on their official forums and all, it doesn’t look good on them for sure.
Do you think Blizzard has the right to ban users and that if gamers want a refund they should do it outside the studio’s official forums? Or should gamers and buyers have the right to talk negatively about the game and what the best course is in terms of getting their money back if they’re not satisfied with the product?
