Starcraft II is now FREE TO PLAY!

Blizzard just made Starcraft II FREE guys, just as promised few days ago. Go here to read more about it. You can download the game from your Blizzard launcher. You seriously gotta see their latest promo video dissing EA Games for their shitty politics, it’s hilarious!

EA situation in few senteces and why it’s good for us

Here is the whole situation in a nutshell. EA releases their brand new AAA title – Star Wars Battlefront 2. There even is a collector’s edition, goes for $80 (wtf). The game itself has locked content in it (like guns, equipment etc) and requires you to play around 4500 hours to unlock all of it. It’s fucking crazy.

What’s more crazy? You can skip the unlocking part and get all of the unlocks for $2100. You’ve read that right.

So naturally the gamers were furious and it was pretty cool and trendy (and right) to just give back that piece of shit and use their refund optionwhich was suddenly gone.

So basically if you wanted to get a refund you had to wait in line, on hold, for an hour. Internet does not forget and I really hope that all of their competitors won’t pull the same tricks on us, I’m talking to you Valve (mostly), GOG, Blizzard (they’re too good to fuck stuff like that up) and others.

Source: reddit

Electronic Arts removed the refund button from Origin

OK it’s been crazy today, Steam launched a lot of new currencies on their platform. GOG apologized for higher prices in Poland and promised to contact developers/publishers to change that (they are higher than Steam’s right now which isn’t quite nice considering GOG is a Polish store).

Anyway it’s been pretty loud on reddit today that EA Games had removed the refund button from their system and if you want to get a refund wait in line… for around an hour (that’s right) to even contact the support team. I don’t quite understand why would they do that but I guess it’s all about the $$$.

Looks like some games are even more expensive on Steam, for example in Israel. Also there was a funny bug on Steam for some guy, he got over $4 000 000 (!) in his Steam wallet after the update. It got fixed by Valve though.

Another thing is that selling Stream trading cards is somewhat broken, you see when you put it up on sale let’s say for $0.03 in USA Steam automatically converts the price to be 0.03zł (in Poland for example) which means it’s cheaper, anyway I’m sure they are going to do something about it because right now you earn less by selling cards in certain regions. At least that’s what I think is happening, not a trader myself.

Something interesting is finally happening, if there’s more I’ll let you know.

Source: reddit and the Internet basically

Watch out! New currencies coming to Steam tomorrow.

In case you didn’t know Steam is introducing a lot of new currencies to the store worldwide, including Polish Złoty. If you have any money in your Steam Wallet and it happens to be in Euros €€€ then you might get fucked. You see, they have sent an e-mail about it recently and Steam is going to convert the cash you have to your local currency.

Why are you out of luck? If they convert it on their own currency exchange rates (which is 3.59zł for €0.99 instead of 4.18zł) you will loose some money.

Here’s a quick example:

If you have charged your Steam wallet with let’s say €25 you paid around 105 Polish Złoty for it. Now if they convert it with their exchange rate you’re going to have around 90 Polish Złoty. If not you’re all good. But if they do… you’re going to loose around 15zł, if you can spend that Steam Wallet funds on something do it now I guess, but it all depends on the price of games.

Valve is going to leave the new exchange rate as a suggestion for game publishers/developers but if they’re going to even the prices to western Europe you’re mostly out of luck. If this happens this really sucks. More info about coming changes here and here.
