okay but some of us paid actual money so from your position getting 3 free skins sounds like a pretty amazing deal, i'd love to be in your shoes. i assume you thought about the hours you'd put into the game earning those shards before purchasing either of the halloween skins initially? you must've thought they were worth it at the time, right? and now because you aren't getting 5 free skins instead of 3 you'd be willing to quit DBD, or at least threaten to. surely you understand how that sounds.
i'm really not trying to trashtalk, that's just a pretty strange hill to die on.
we can only have hope.
We read the in-game and twitter news, and they only post the OLD ones will have a discount...
each halloween collection have a different name, and again, they only said on these news about make a discount from the past two halloween collections, nothing about the new one, wich if they want add a discount to the new one... they should wait until the discount day to add them in the store, or have the discout before they make the others discounts.
so... please, don't mix the news about the old halloween collections with the new ones...
It's quite appalling how BHVR hasn't replied to this topic yet. It's blatantly clear that many people were scammed out of their shards/money from this and now they won't even acknowledge the issue. Under no circumstances should this thread be buried, keep it up until they finally respond.
rip, tried posting a similar thread on the DBD Reddit and its getting bombed, cant see the dev's taking any notice at this rate with how most the community seems happy now.
This will show how much they love the fans if they do refund
Just respond to people with the same problem on reddit linking this thread like this https://www.reddit.com/r/deadbydaylight/comments/jgun58/skins_discounted_to_9000_everyone_will_be_able_to/g9tpul0/
It's free of you think your time isn't worth anything. I pity you if that's true.
Also, if these people used their shards after this "sale" they would be able to get another skin plus be even closer to another with the additional login bonus. If they bought 2 skins at full price? The math shows how badly screwed they got.
And again, they were screwed because this was time they put into the game and time is worth something for most people.
i don't count 'time spent playing one of my favorite games' as money, no.
dbd isn't my occupation and if were iri shards wouldn't be my salary. 👀
Dude, i literally lost hours of grind because of this. I don't consider this "free skins" because you need to play a bunch to get one of them. And its not about getting refund to buy more skins, is getting a refund to buy the same skins for the discounted prices and keep all my hours grind still.
If you can't play the same amount you can get with real money but this is not the point of the thread.
And yeah, if they don't refund ill just quit because i don't want to support/play a game with bad devs. already did this in the past with other games.
if you're only playing dbd to get iri shards to eventually purchase cosmetics i think quitting is a great idea, it shouldn't feel like a job and iri shards shouldn't feel like necessary payment for doing so. if it's really that tedious, at least take a break for your own sake. i plan to do the same honestly, it's really hard to enjoy a game everyone else is so vocally miserable about all the time.
I sent an email to support yesterday and haven't received a response.
Obviously i don't play only to get Iridescent Shards but seeing all the shards i got since 2018 being literally "scammed" like that is not something that will make me put a fake smile in my face and keep playing.
Exactly!!! I was saving up shards for so long and it took me AGES to get over 40k for anything worth it. I bet BHVR just syphoned those shards out so people have to actually buy DLCs instead of earning them with shards. Guess what, no money is coming out of my wallet anymore. I'm done with this.
I spent 42k and i still have 39k left so i still can buy tons of things but not getting the refund is just morally and ethically wrong and i will not going to support them anymore if they don't refund everybody who got caught on this. Straight outrageous.
If they cant keep the game playable with pushing out new content every 3 months they need to do it every 4 or something cause they break te game everytime something new comes out and they have finally made everything from previous update somewhat better...all just to f it up again..
I'm shocked this actually happened. I'm one who spent some of my shards for the Feng outfit and to find out that the very next day it's already discounted by a HUGE margin is one of the biggest slaps in the face I've ever seen from a company. Those of you defending this are either shills or disguised BHVR employees. I wouldn't have an issue if this year's blight stuff went on sale later, since that's something all cosmetics get eventually. However, to have these items get a huge reduction the FOLLOWING day after they're released? Yeah, no. This is BS.
You truly lack any empathy if you think this is morally right in any way. What they have done is a scam, nothing else.
Are you seriously? This is not compensation. Since October 24, everyone will receive the shards. Not just those who bought overpriced skins.
"The developers are not violating the arbitrary rules that they have complete control over and that they themselves have instantiated." is a pretty low standard to meet. By the same logic there is any number of awful things that the developers could do, but just because the EULA allows it does not mean it is a smart thing to do.
I fully agree that everyone that purchased at full price should be refunded as good will. The way that the sale was added was slimey.
Be glad you didnt buy the Felix skin with 1200 auric cells,like me...
Agreed. I have supported this game since Beta and have all the DLC chapters day one, along with a handful of skins.
I will not be spending another cent on anything this company produces if this stands as it is. I didn't agree with the Rift but it was entirely optional. I was a bit disappointed in the Halloween event this year but I didn't throw a fit, and I enjoyed the Legion skin so I bought it. Now if I had spammed their social media accounts and complained enough for three days I could have saved 52%? That's bullshit.
I didn't complain when other people complained about this event. And it’s unpleasant for me that BHVR did this in relation to the players loyal to them. I'll get over it, as well as an unfriendly attitude. But now I will think many times before giving them money.
Yep, got the same BS message from support. Do you know how long it took me to grind those shards?? I've been saving up since last year and just got scammed out of all of them. Seems like they don't care either as no official response from a dev/community rep yet.
Saaaaame. Feeling all kinds of boosted for that lol
You should level claudette to lv30 itll help you understand whats wrong.
Honestly i feel like even you should get 4200shards per cosmetic piece too but its been a day already so idk whats going to happen.
Also personally i feel like using your shards from 50+ hours of work is worse than spending $10
I feel so ######### scammed. I had to choose between the rift and the you outfit because no way was I going to have time to grind 21k shards. I bought the you outfit with Aric cells and now youre telling me I couldve had it for free and instead used my cells for the rift?? are you serious??? Its crazy the most biggest supporters of the game are being scammed while everyone else who held out and complained get what they want. Im baffled honestly. I tried playing today and I couldnt. I feel so gross playing knowing how little they care about their most dedicated players like myself.
