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.

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.
