if they dont want to piss people off more then yes
The link Was in the in game news, you just had to click the link for more info like majority of their in game news posts.
They also shared the link to the News post in the event announcements on Twitter and Facebook. They probably should've posted it in News section of forums too but they could assume people get here through the website. Not sure how all streamers do it but I know Paulie Esther atleast goes through and reads the entire News post on streams and videos.
The sale was announced at same time as the event announcement News post. It's not DBD fault when people decide to not follow the link that provides all the details to the events like the date of an upcoming sale.
I'm not sure you know what is going on here.
The sale you show here is for older cosmetics. The new sale, that just came out today as "compensation", is for the new skins that have been out for less than a day. This sale was not posted anywhere and was just sprung on us because they believed it was a good idea. It is, in theory, but anyone who spent their shards on the one day they were full price literally got screwed.
Dude, they put banners with news like you showed all the time in the game news..enough with these links. They could have easily posted the picture with the sale written on it. Rediculous.
As much as that sucks, that's pretty normal business practice everywhere around the globe, not just in games. You don't really get prompted when a certain sale is about to hit consumers, well, not always at least. Look at Sony Playstation store for example. You might buy a game full price right now but within a week that game might be in sale for 50% off. Do you contact sony support and ask for a refund? That's just the nature of the business. If you are afraid of losing on good sales, just save up your shards, don't spend them unless there's a sale going on.
Actually if you bought a game within a week of a sale you can call Sony(Playstation support) to receive a refund. They are usually pretty good about it.
Yup, i also bought 2/3 of the feng outfit when it was pretty much clear that there won't be any serum this year.
I don't know how they do it but they pretty much seem to have some kind of skill to make the community mad over and over again.
I mean atleast it was earnable shards I spent actual cash like an idiot...
Ye, please reconsider the way you want to handle this or the community will be even more mad than before.
Having no event is one thing but having some of the community members lose shards because of that is even worse.
You definitely have it worse, but it still sucks either way.
Pretty sure Steam and Sony will refund you when this ######### happens.
Places like Amazon, Best Buy, etc. will do the same as well. Usually within a 14 day window. This DBD price drop has been like, 2 days since the Skins were put up lol.
That's a big if
Sony is known to be notoriously anti-consumer when it comes to refunds. Yeah, they got the basic covered unlike Nintendo, but I haven't come across something like this. If you purchase a game from their store, download it and play, yeah, you can kiss your refund goodbye. Now, if you just purchase but don't download it, they do refund, but that's not really a fair comparison to this situation.
the cosmetics from previous events werent sold for Irishards and could be earned through grindy prosses, theyre Auric cells only now, these new ones were sold for shards aswell as auric cells. and for those hording shards would get them for free. a lot of people were complaining that it was too grindy now all you suckers that didnt care and bought them anyway complain theyre on sale. lmao you guys will never be happy
Why do people keep getting surprised by this?
Another thread confirmed that you're out of luck.
The whole point of this discount and free shards is because people were really really pissed off. If they dont just run a script thats for every cosmetic piece not bought with auric cells give 4200 shards, people are still going to be pissed off, so whats even the point of the change.
Its really simple change and theres no way they dont keep track of people's purchases.
Same i bought 2 outfits full price
Late late night I finally managed to get enough shards to buy one piece of the new legion skin. As we all learned from the in-game news system, we were not going to receive any kind of special currency to buy these skins, so I spent almost all of my hard-earned iridescent shards.
And then, today, I find out that if I just waited two days (again, there was NO WAY to know this) I would have enough to buy THE WHOLE SKIN.
I'm so mad right now I keep questioning why do I lose my time investing in this game only to be disappointed again and again...
I dunno. Way back when I first got DBD I bought all of it, all DLC (up to Clown, Spirit wasn't out yet) downloaded it and played. Within the week it was discounted. All of it. So I called and got a refund to make up the difference. Granted though, that refund was in the form of codes to add funds to the PS Store. But I already spent that money on the store so it was fine. So maybe you can't really call it a refund, but I consider it as much.
This isn't nearly the same thing as something just "going on sale" of course people know that will eventually happen.
These items came out like 3 days ago. Outrage caused this to happen and a lower price. The irony is their MOST loyal costumers got screwed over by the change lol. They absolutely should get a refund.
I just bought 2 outfits for less than what some of them paid for 1. I would be insanely frustrated right now if I spent 42,000 shards for 2 outfits only for them to decrease the price by over 100%.
This would be like buying the new console this year and 1 week later they sell them for 200$. People would be furious.
######### are you saying dude?
I've been saving my iridescent shards since halloween 2018 and only spent on DLCS and one Jane costume.
This event should be like the last 2 instead of the way was released. Every person who complained about being too greedy is right and now every person who is complaining about the price change is right too.
You should put yourself in the place of other people and try to see why they are feeling this way instead of being so close mind.
I mean, I'm sorry to tell you that, for once, BHVR doesn't have any faults. I mean, it's just like when you bought a game day one, then a months after the game gets discounted. You just took the L, period. Why should you get a refund? Wouldn't be the same, like if you bought Blight only for undying, just to find the day after that undying is in the shrine?
Tbh i read the leaks and I knew there was a 70 percent sale coming soon so i waited.
Is pretty simple, they have the EULA to defend them but this is a question of principles. Also we are not talking about months, we are talking about 2 days and with a currency that NEVER had any sale.
They can refund the shards for us, the people who play tons of the game and enjoy it. Opening a exception on the EULA for this specific case or they can say "frick you we are right" and keep going.
I didn't DEMAND refund i just said that's the right thing to do ethically.
Wait what happened? I'm lost. Is this about loss when trying to link with Bhvr accounts?
Also I'm pretty sure you can't release things on sale as soon as it release I believe fallout 76 was called out for this so they had to place its original price. So bhvr covered themselves
They changed the iridescent shards prices for the Halloween sets from 21600 to 9000 and don't want to refund people who bought before the change.
Nothing to do with linking bhvr accounts.
The new "event" skins they put up are 21k shards.
Due to how terrible the "event" is and the massive backlash against it, they've lowered the cost of these 21k skins by a huge amount.
2 days after they put up the skins and with no warning.
Looks like the people who already spent 21k won't be refunded/reimbursed.
