For those of us who weathered the early days of MMOs when downtime and rollbacks were a daily occurrence, the idea of compensation might still seem a bit foreign, but that won’t make us any less ungrateful. In fact, this week we saw two MMOs dish out compensation for game issues.
In Trove, an outage for both North American and European players on PS4 early this month is apparently being worked on, though not before causing players to miss out on events and even in some cases lose their growing gardens over the course of more than a week of being unable to log in. “We have resolved several issues for many players connecting to PS4 NA and PS4 EU, but those still unable to login we are working on a fix,” Gamigo wrote. “After it has been fully resolved we plan on sending out a compensation to players for connection issues this past weekend. More details to come, thanks all for your patience!”
