Make My MMO

This week in MMO crowdfunding news, we learned about the new Powerplay update coming to Elite: Dangerous that promises to revamp the space sim’s mining profession into something approaching lucrative. We also heard from Crowfall’s devs, and more specifically, how they plan to make their ambitious realm war title for a paltry $6 million. Finally, Shroud of the Avatar got some visual upgrades and some pretty kick-ass in-game books!

His M.O. has been to slag the game off from day one, claiming it’s an SC knockoff, riding on SC’s crowdfunding blah blah, never mind the out and out lies that have been proven false. What idiocy would make me suddenly feel he has any validity when he claims to have the game or has requested a refund?
a – It’s only logical that someone so constant in dissing the game would have made a lot more noise on the forums in their attempt to seek a refund, especially someone as persistantly vitriolic as NovaScotia. Yet he has never offered up any links of his own attempts or refusal of being granted a refund.
b – If someone was willing to put down 120 euros on a game then prior to their opinion of it going sour they would probably want to discuss it in some way, small things they hope for, things they’re unsure about and so on. Yet that has never been the case which obviously calls his ownership into question.

Regardless of his bias, that does not make him a liar. It’s well documented that they were not going to give refunds to any and everyone from the start. Was there some press release where they changed their minds about that that I missed? That whole “if you played you’re outta luck” stance they had put a very sour taste in a lot of people’s mouths. Even people that were big supporters of the game. So really unless you have some insight into his actual attempts to get a refund, you really do t know what you’re talking about.

So a bunch of links where people post on the forum asking for a refund, what exactly is that meant to show?
They
ask for people to contact support not post their own thread because the
mods can’t do refunds. Nearly all of those links are from last year
with zero follow up.
Even one of the most vocal complainers admits that Frontier do grant refunds as can be seen here – https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=60257&p=1983265&viewfull=1#post1983265
Just
sell your account if you really have one. You took a gamble with
pre-ordering or KS, this constant whinging just goes so far
beyond the pale.

– Previous reply seems to be hidden so reposting (with a bit more politeness).

Cotic_OP LordOfBread Dozens of locked threads from disgruntled and in some cases banned backers not even getting a response from their so called customer support tell me you´re making this up on purpose.

I know for a fact I didn´t get my 120€ back, will you refund me? You seem well connected, go sort it out.

Uh huh, and I suppose pigs fly where you live as well.
From KS to when a decision was made about removing the offline mode you never once asked a genuine question or bounced a single idea about the game. The only thing you ever did was criticise it and always while talking up SC, why would anyone believe you spent money on it?
Everyone that wanted a refund got it except for poor little you, yeah right.

Cotic_OP LordOfBread I bought the offline game they advertised, I paid for that and got scammed, they refused refund after they forced their RMT shop online launcher on everyone, I wanted to do modding like people do with regular offline games like Freelancer – impossible now in favor of their cosmetic exclusive junk shop with ripoff 15€ skins
