You be the judge, isn't this harassment?
That's just Twitter.
Why all the attacks? He says
Are this perfectly reasonable reasons to post pictures of their children, their resumes, their marital status, videos, e-mails, scantily clad pictures, their childrens' names,etc?
"Cloud Imperium spokesperson Dave Swofford tells Ars that "a lot of the information was fabricated" in the Reddit post discussed the below. Swofford says the account in question was issued an individual refund of $330, not the $45,000 claimed in posted screenshots and videos which Swofford says do not reflect actual complaints requests logged by the company. What's more, Swofford says the refund was handled "in a timely fashion" with "no extended debate over whether we should."edit. And this article on PC Gamer:
The Reddit post contains a number of screenshots of correspondence between the poster and CIG's customer service department detailing the refund process, however: "The screenshots do not represent the actual communications which were shared to and from our support department," the CIG representative wrote. "So no…there’s nothing to it at all. There is no story."edit. Right after CIG's reaction and the media intent to contact who claimed the refund, the poster deleted account.
...a refund was issued recently to one customer, but in the amount of $330. I asked if it appeared this was the same customer, and if this customer had perhaps doctored the correspondence to make it appear as if the amount refunded was $45,000. The response I got was: "Yes to the first. Yes to the second…as best as we can tell."
Like the vid I linked the guy mentions as well, this has been a long pratice in mobile gaming but it took one AAA title to push them in such a way to get reactions and things moving.Slapshot1188 said:I suspected it would go this way when EA pulled their loot boxes. I'm sure they had a feeling for what would happen before it was announced.
Now we will see how it's negotiated and what stays/goes.
Invalid argument.TaishiFox said:However when it comes to an actual minor I'm sorry to say but it IS the parent's responsability to make sure they are doing the right thing so I still stand by what I said about irresponsable parenting.
All it would take is EU itself to get involved and put out regulations for it, when Valve pushed it they fined the hell out of them. So I think it's about getting the issue being discussed in the right places and then things get to happen.immodium said:It won't though. All they'll do is build the game around the new regulations. Loot boxes aren't going anywhere in AAA titles.
Go on a full rampage. Is it because of me or do you really love spending money in loot boxes? O_owaynejr2 said:
Hey PIG. they are not considered gambling in America so stuff it. All they are doing is a review and that could simply mean they say: "yes, only a fool would call it gambling". So stop your hissy fit.
