    Players report that you can't even refund this game because they sell it as DLC.

    Still no mention of male scholar, mage, or archer. I wonder if this will be like the Mystic in Bless Online where the game closes before something that was announced before launch ever gets released.

    Are you really sure you want to launch on a platform with refunds?

    Gender locked classes are a sign of a poor, lazy dev team.

    This is why you cant play the game from their storepage. All it does is redirect you to their DLC pages and on Steam, this type of DLC is not refundable as it will add items outside of Valves reach.

    So if people want to judge a game on its marketing.. this is one dead RIP game :D

    if you click the "read more" button you'll see a standard edition for $30. Sneaky way to get people to miss that one and pay $80 lol...

    OMG! So excited about this game, you guys!! I'm downloading it as we speak. Check my activity on my page...it's so close to what I've been longing for! This game will allow me to be the ringleader of a gang of lollies! Fragilae!! It's indescribably beautiful!

    Update: They just launched the game in NA...and immediately went into a 6-hour maintenance! :D

    Edit: Do not buy this game...the graphics are terrible. They are using Unreal Engine 3 and DirectX 9 for this POS. I'm in the process of getting my $30 dollars back.

    Wow selling it as DLC to avoid refunding is not great. 

    I had fun with the game while I played, but I doubt it will gain any traction on steam, and if it does it will have a hard falloff like Bless.

    People have been reporting they've received refunds so maybe they've fixed their problems.

    Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

    Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

    Honestly, it might depend on who you talk to via steam. I've gotten refunds on stuff 10+ hours into a game by proving that the hours don't always calculate right on steam (had some games start the gameplay timer while I'm actually downloading the game due to external launchers).

    They only "Fixed" that because they got called on it.
    Otherwise they'd of kept with the dlc stuff since they had to deliberately put it as DLC.

    Someone thought it was a sneaky good idea. The community gave a big FK YOu and bam ooopsie poopsie it was a accident.

    Lol.... I guess if that's what you want to call that an accident then it's an accident.

    I still call shenanigans because we all know they clicked the "IS DLC" shit.

    Like seriously.... why would you think this?

    Anyone who has played this can tell you that it's completely forgettable and below average.

    like you need to play to know that
    FOR HONOR, FOR FREEDOM.... and for some money.

    They've had a two-week refund policy for several months.

    I wouldn't play this if they paid me $3,000.
    How long would we be required to play it? That money could be invested in some other game.

    It also has an issue where if you had a trial account for the original web site client you can't create a steam account without using a new email address, no way of linking accounts.
