 "WarZ" is a f$#k up, steam giving refunds
topic by TheCityOnMyMind - 12-19-2012, 05:23 PM - Boxden > BX GameSpot


After our astonishing interview with The War Z's executive producer yesterday, it comes as no real surprise that Valve has stepped up and pulled The War Z from sale on Steam until Hammerpoint sorts out its issues. Customers who already bought it via Steam can keep it if they want; those who don't can get a full refund from Steam support. Valve also admits it made a mistake in releasing The War Z in the first place. Valve's full statement below:

Valve: From time to time a mistake can be made and one was made by prematurely issuing a copy of War Z for sale via Steam. We apologize for this and have temporary removed the sale offering of the title until we have time to work with the developer and have confidence in a new build. Those who purchased the game and wish to continue playing it via Steam may do so. Those who purchased the title via Steam and are unhappy with what they received may seek a refund by creating a ticket at our support site here: https://support.steampowered.com/newticket.php

Again, we apologize any inconvenience.

That's about all I can ask from Valve in a situation like this, other than some kind of a$surance that new policies have been put in place to prevent it from happening again.

Figures this was a mistake. The game is still in early alpha so of course it looks like crap. It's no where near ready. It's a blast to play with friends, and even crazier when you find random people out in the open.

WarZ = arcadey style shooter survival, where as DayZ is more simulation based.

And this is why Valve / Steam is so much better than the other services.

I was about to make a big thread yesterday but got to high and totally forgot.

All I have to say is DON'T SUPPORT THIS COMPANY EVER.
The are a scam of a company and the main dude behind it was also responsible for one of hte worst pc games of all time, BIG RIGS. The WarZ is JUST as bad, if not worse.

I could sit here and write up a huge list of things they have done, but I woudl be here for hours.

Bottomline is, go buy DayZ, Project Zomboid, The Walking Dead, Dead Island or wait for the DayZ standalone if you want a zombie game, because WarZ is complete garbage.

One of the worst games ive ever played in 20+ years.

This has been the very first time ive been upset at steam for something, but they did the right thing and took the game down (despite it beign #1 in sales for two days). Instead of just keeping the big sales going, they stopped it, very well done.

One thing that I have sen over the last few days is how wonderfully most pc gamers are warnign other fellow gamers not to buy this ####. People are also helping others try and get refund frmo steam and the devs main website. Its nice to see the pc gamign community not stand for this. This is the worst false advertisment of a game EVER.

Never mind how bad the actual game is to play, the devs are just ####ing idiots and scam artists which is the big thing to me. STAY AWAY!

Seems like this company just cashed in on the Dayz hype. Never really liked the look of this game, cash shops in a survival horror game sounds horrible, plus from the gameplay I've seen the zombies move incredibly unrealistic.

I'm sorry but if you bought this game you deserved to be scammed. This game was brought to you by the same guy that gave the gaming world Big Rigs. That alone should of been enough of a warning.

Wait, these are the same dudes behind the abomination that is Big Rigs?

ni##as tried to pull another fast one. Big Rigs was as good as a bull#### game I once made in an XNA tutorial. Somebody just needs to confiscate this studio's equipment and ban them from ever making games ever again.

If you want a zombie game get Project Zomboid or Dayz Mod.
Or jsut wait till Jan when the DAYZ standalone on a new engine comes out.

Or if you REALLY wanan try WarZ for free, there is a well made EMULATOR that has 10 private servers on it.

Don't give these scam artists any money
