So I don’t know about everyone else but with news that blizzard has cancelled their initial plans of increased customization throughout the expansion I am going request a refund for services not delivered.
Yes technically we did get customizations initially. But blizzard stated that customization would be added throughout the expansion. Which means I am not getting the full product I ordered. Many of you may criticize me. Blizzard themselves might deny the refund. None the less they deserve to know my dissatisfaction with this choice. Blizzard doesn’t promise a lot but that was one thing they said was going to happen and cut entirely. Yeah I know it’s not the first time. WoD had it heavily while I didn’t request a refund I did hardly play in WoD.
I’m not mad at the devs. It probably wasn’t even their choice to begin with.
I’m disappointed in this.
For an example to showcase why this is worthy of refund.
Imagine you buy a game when it comes out for the normal $60. The base game is alright but it promises free dlcs with an epic dragon fight or some such. And then… nothing. It just get cancelled. The DLC in that case wouldn’t be “Free” you paid for it with the initial $60 and they failed to deliver something that was already delayed from release.
Another example being you order a table off of amazon. It get to you but you only got the base not the legs. They tell you that the legs will be delivered at a later date. Finally you hear back from amazon and they say “sorry no legs”. You’re entitled to a refund because you didn’t get the whole product you paid for.
One of the major selling features this expansion with the increased customization. The cancelization of it only half finished when I was already on the fence on renewing (blizzcon was going the make it break it) means I’m done. For now. Probably for shadowlands. Maybe I’ll consider coming in mid next expansion to see if they actually do what they say they’re going to do.
Not only did blizzcon not entice me to resubscribe but also made me want a refund… that’s never happened any blizzcon. Not a single time have I ever wanted a refund for a blizzard product.
I’m not just upset at the cancellation but also how they addressed it. So cavalier about it. Like it’s not a big deal. Like we shouldn’t have expected it even though they said it was going to happen. They acted satisfied with what is currently there when is is clearly half finished. Look at every allied race (except void elves). Look at half of the core races who got hardly anything compared to orcs and humans. How can any of that be justified?!?!
Literally got a table without legs. I was content to wait for the legs to get here but they just got cancelled. This is not fully delivering a product. That is the gamble with games where the purchase takes time to fully release like MMOs but I’ve never been this dissatisfied. I don’t raid much but also for raiders out there… the new raid? not only doe sit not have class sets it’s just a recolour of 9.0 gear… yeah… 9.1 is looking bad… Like is this WoD.2? sigh. Imagine if in WoD they only updated half the races said they’d do the the other half and just never did it. Didn’t blood elves get delayed? What if blood elves NEVER got updated when their update was promised just delayed. That’s what happened here.
If you are dissatisfied with the current direction of the game and shadowlands. If you’re upset about the lack of fully delivered content. Of only half done content and half finished concepts then you are welcoem to join me in unsubscribing and asking for a refund.
Refund Reason: Did not fully deliver product.
Agree with me, disagree with me. Think I’m whiney, think I have a point, think I’m overreacting, empathies with me, think I am ridiculous, gonna follow my lead and ask for a refund. Whatever. These are the WoW forums and I am posting my grievances.
For what it’s worth… this wasn’t easy. WoW saved my life. (not going to go into that story). I never wanted to give up on it. But despite the emotional connections I have to it. Ultimately it is a game. A game is meant to be entertain. I am no longer entertained. That’s all that matters.
