Blizzard Expands Refund Requests For Warcraft 3: Reforged
Now's the time to get a refund.
Blizzard has changed its standard refund policy for Warcraft III: Reforged, allowing those disappointed by the game the opportunity to receive a refund upon request. This follows a week in which fans have remarked that the remaster of the iconic RTS was lacking in several areas.
The Support section on Battle.net has a refund page for the game that outlines its specific refund policy. "Blizzard stands by the quality of our products and our services," the page reads. "Normally we set limits for refund availability on a game, based on time since purchase and whether it has been used. However we want to give players the option of a refund if they feel that Warcraft III: Reforged does not provide the experience they wanted. So, we've decided to allow refunds upon request for the time being. You may request a refund here on our Support Site."
Blizzard's RTS remaster launched last week to a mostly negative reception. Many fans have noted that certain cutscenes failed to live up to the expectations set by what was shown previously at BlizzCon 2018, and many are disappointed with the absence of reworked story elements and an overhauled UI. The remaster has also courted controversy surrounding the fact that anything you create in Warcraft III's Custom Games is immediately owned by Blizzard, rather than by their creators, which hasn't gone down well in the game's modding scene.
Blizzard has responded to the negative reception in the week since its release, and patches are on the way. For now, though, if you want a refund you'll get one.
