My opinion on: “How to get your money back from WG”

notserb

Yes, this is MY opinion! I’m totally against that shit and I’ve been emailing Seb many times yesterday asking in the end to remove the post in total. Seb is the owner of TAP and is entitled to post anything he wants and I don’t have a power to stop him, but I can bitch about it as an author on TAP.

Proposed act is a theft of money from WG, no matter how you describe it or call it, and it will stay a theft. TAP is blog about WOT, not a criminal manual, hence this shit shouldn’t be on TAP.

Many readers feel that they’ve been screwed by WG, so they are entitled to steal from WG, which is a nonsense. If a company or a person is capable of profiting from you while you feel bad about it, as long as it’s in a legal way, it is normal (everyday) business. This happens all the time, and some people decide to fight it, in legal way, and some win, but most lose. Trick is that this legal fight, is a time/money/brain cells wasting model for which most will decide not to do. For those who do it, some end up losing even more, so when an average person is faced with this dilemma, he’ll most likely end up eating/drinking something and forgetting about it.

The system is made by companies for the companies and against the consumer. In EU there is a great misconception that the system is made for the consumer :) :) :) Living in a shithole (like I do) frees you from that illusion and you are ready to be f*cked by businesses. The most important component is constant repetition until you are capable of receiving the act without even thinking about it.

WG is a company, I’m ready, so we do the business, I get hurt, WG tricks me, I cry, WG does nothing, WG keeps the money, I get nothing, everything is just as it should be. Of course it’s NOT, but as I sad previously, no time/money/brain cells to waste, and a company wins.

If you have time/money/brain cells to waste, go ahead, fight the power, make WG your bitch, make them cry (pay), hurrah a true hero for all of us to worship! I will post all the juicy details how you confronted WG and post pictures of their tears.

This shit that Seb posted has nothing to do with heroism, fighting the system/man/etc, it’s a pure scam where WG is NOT made to do anything, in fact they’ve been tricked and money is stolen from them. It’s NOT a WG’s decision to return money, it’s milking the system, using a loophole and has nothing to do with a fight against WG, it’s a criminal act!

You guys decide if you want to be a criminal or a hero.

    Their HQ should be in Minsk, but noooo.

    3. So? I have all three and am happy with them. Stop complaining and try to learn how to play it. The mechanics in this game will ever change – learn how to deal with it.
      To me it seems that many of WG’s playerbase are … how you said? … the biggest scumbags on earth.
      Sorry for my harsh words, but whatever WG will do there will be thousands who will complain, mainly “just because”.
      And before you ask, I am an 81k player with 225 tanks in my garage, so yes, I know the game at least rudimentarily …

      As for the refund – buying a newspaper or a magazine and complaining following day that it is completely outdated – that is seriously your thoughts? To me WG has proven over the past six years that while it might take a while they will try to get it in line again. Of course this game will evolve and will ever be changed. And changes need time.

    4. Bought the IS-6 in 2014, on discount, clocked 1k games in it. I’d say I got my money’s worth out of it. I enjoyed all the credit making it did, and the roflstomp I had for 3 years. I was already bored of it when the Defender came out. It sucks that the IS-6 cant really do anything against the new powercreep tanks now. Tho instead of wanting my money back, I want them to rebalance it so it can fight properly again.

      1. Got my IS-6 through a marathon once and play it since then – even now 1st classes or Ace tanker happen from time to time, and I am only a “green” player.
        Fact is that you have to adapt to the new meta instead of complaining about it. The IS-6, to stick with this example, never was good at penetrating enemy HTs frontally, but given that the IS-6 more times faced lower tiers this wasn’t too apparent.
        But it is still possible to deal 2k-3k damage in a battle (without APCR) by shooting flanks and using HE more often. Use the IS-6’s mobility and go for falns and weaker targets. Don’t spoil yourself as a front brawler unless facing lower tiers. Use its strenghts instead fussing over its weaknesses.
        A once strong stank my become weaker over the time (as it happens with nearly all things on earth – you once super modern car will turn out outdated some 10 years later, but you will not go to the company and tell them what crap they sold you 10 years ago, do you?) but it still can be played to its strenghts.
        But this means learning instead of just clicking and doing again and again whatever you did in the past. Evolution does not only affect the game and its components but also the players playing it. Once anything changes this means new learning, not complaining.

    They are treating us like brainless cattle, trying to milk every last penny, and in the process ruining what had all the potential of being a truly wonderful game.

    If there was an option to get a PART of your money back, that would IMO be the most fair thing to do.
    Let`s say, give me back 80% of my money I gave for premiums, and you can keep all your worthless powercreeped pixel tanks.

      1. Most retailers today allow for refunds. The refunds are usually limited to a certain time period, but they are NOT “use it 1 time, and no refund for joo”, like it is with premiums in WoT.

        Also, most other businesses companies aren`t allowed to change what they sold (like, for instance, selling you tank that has ~30% chance to be top tier, and then changing the MM so that you are top tier in 10% of the time).

        Such actions are called “bait and switch” and are generally universally frowned upon, and in many countries, they are illegal.

        So, there is nothing wrong about doing this, UNLESS WG changes how it behaves, and starts listening to the community, over an extended period of time.
        If that MIRACLE would have happen, then yes, this might be immoral. But as it is? HELL NO!

        I work in digital goods and services, and I can tell you black on white that if the devs fuck up during delivery, and the client doesn’t get what the sales rep sold him, it’s money back. If my firm refuses, it’s off to court and we’re losing. badly.

        If we decide to change the services’ functionality in slight, but significant ways, its money back or off to court to lose.

        Artifically making a product worse by applying global changes, then selling new products that are exempt from that?

        Just ask Apple how its doing with its planned Iphone obsolescence lawsuit uncovered last year.
        They’re scrambling to damage control by lowering battery replace costs and offering store credit on it across the board.

        This behavior in a company very usually leads to frequent lawsuits that typically end in out of cout settlements, because the company knows that it’s losing.

  9. It’s hardly theft if WG takes back control of what already belongs to them after the customer has been refunded. No WG customer ever really received what they paid for. On top of that, any transaction done through Paypal is insured by them so it is Paypal who are the arbiters of whether a refund takes place or not. If the customer can show that they have a legitimate claim and then Paypal refund, for WG to then close the account to the customer is wrong (yet nobody seems morally outraged by this) and opens themselves up to further claims and thus further refunds.

    WG could ony sue Paypal not the customer because as insurer of the transaction, Paypal subrogates the rights and defenses for the transaction, and WG don’t stand a chance of winning because of their behviour.

    Whether or not customers make a genuine claim or not is their business. However, Seb should ammend the article so that only genuine claims are encouraged rather it being seen as a campaign to encourage non genuine claims.

    (Tl:dr: Marketing abuses and uses, disgusting psychological tricks to make ppl buy shit they dont need)

    Such things may be legal, but are -at least in my opinion- absolutely immoral and wont change any time soon, neither get influenced by the ppl that decide to play fair.

    As far as I experienced the world we live in I noticed that:
    Its an unfair world in which u get what u take as long as its legal, even if its just borderline legal and moral is nothing worth.
    Its a world where moral is like a wall thats not made to lead to a fair and peaceful society, but to make those easily abusable that hold on to it.
    If we take a look at the history of mankind, its always cruelty, greed and power that rules, look at Rome, its based on slavery, look at the Greek, the great alexander, who got to power by slaughtering others that had territorial claims, look at the medieval times where only those would be able to hold their claim, if they were able to oppress the small men and now look at our modern society: Its still based on greed and the search for power, its much more civilized indeed, but the frame is still the same. Its only working ‘cuz those that seek power and fortune are able to, without harming one another physically, but the rules are made for those that seek power and fortune and not for those trying to live a fair and morally correct life.

    So why would you play the game of life morally right, if the rules are made for those that dont? This isnt like monopoly, you dont get punished by your family if you play to win, instead of playing to make sure everybody has a good time. If the game of life is over you are done. No aftermath. No punishment. No nothing, just emptiness.

    PS: For those believing that there is a afterlife, let me ask you something: If god is good-hearted and almighty, like the holy texts claim, how is it that such things as cruelty and greed exists? Either your god is not good-hearted, and tries to torment us to test our loyalty, which makes him per definition cruel or he isnt almighty and some other bad forces can influence this world. Which of both it is, its not important ‘cuz your afterlife will either be under a cruel god, or one that is not able to rule it, which generally makes it pointless to please your god, ‘cuz your afterlife will be just as shitty as this life.

    But customers DO have rights, mostly to have a working product and not being lied to about the specs and performance of that product. For recent example, fine applied to Volkswagen for lying about their cars respecting pollution limits and regulations.

It’s like buying a smart tv that received an update that removes all the software. I know I would be fucking pissed… Also, if you buy a tank, play a single game and ask for a refund they won’t give you one without outright threatening you they will lock down your account and make you regret it. By law you’re allowed to get a refund for digital goods up until two weeks. I’m sorry but I strongly believe anyone who does go the chargeback way does actually behave exactly like he should. I personally won’t as I’ve spent too much time that will be frustrating to loose but if it was just a moral issue, I would chargeback in a heartbeat

  18. To be honest, cancelling a purchase is normal if you do not recieve the goods you purchased or you get something you did not agree to buy. In many cases this can be applied to the products from WG. The products are faulty, they do not function as specified, they can be made unusable without warning etc.

    The first step is to talk to the customer service. We all know that does not work at WG.

    Let’s take an example that you bought a premium tank, gold and premium time. The day after you get banned for use of illegal mods even though you only use mods from the WG website and nothing else. You have no rights to appeal that and talking to customer service will result in nothing.

    Is it wrong to get your money back in this case?

    Next example. You spend lots of gold to free XP a specific tank. Without warning WG nerfs the underwear off that tank and it is not what you wanted any more…. but it was when you got it. You rage quit and feel cheated. Again talking to customer service is pointless.

    Is this wrong to get try and your money back?

    I feel that it is the right of everyone to attempt toi get money back if they do not get what they bought, or were tricked into getting something inferior to what they thought they were getting.

    The problem is evil intent.

    I disagree to anyone saying “this should not be posted” because the difference between “evil intent” and “legitimate claim” is the mindset of the person doing it.

    Posting this idea here is NOT encouraging people to do anything fraudulent. It’s only information. I suppose it can be seen as provocative but not more than that. (This being a copy/paste from EWOT makes it provocative by default lol).

    Chill people. Don’t make things bigger than what they need to be. (That’s WGs job). Do it or don’t…. just don’t flap your fucking arms around so much.

  19. This is my opinion on this whole topic:

    Did you like getting effed by wargaming? I did not choose nor agree to change and balance the vehicles in a direct or non direct way, i payed for them for a reason they advertised them to be. They still did it, and they didn’t care.

    We got robbed in a way, or tricked by them, which you may or may not agree, but i personally find it disgusting and a backstab towards the people who supported them by purchasing these online goods.

    If i had the chance, heck i would do it, i would charge them back for all the money i’ve put into this game but since i didn’t use paypal i will not be able to.

    I also had a chargeback issue back in 2011-12 where wg charged me 2x the money for a single bundle i purchased. I had contacted my bank that this is not correct since i only got an auto reply message from a support bot as usual denying everything. My account got instantly blocked and they made me pay back 75 euros total including the 30 extra that they charged me for… i got robbed by them and had to pay so that i can play on my account.. ever since then i decided not to pay them for anything which i obviously failed. But i completely agree with anybody deciding to do this process, knowing how shady and disgusting of a company wg are. They deserve it like it or not.

    They are losing community contributors left right center, so does the playerbase.. is it surprising? I dont think so. Every person has the right to do whatever to get their money back. If you think it is shady and considered as a crime then ask yourself what wg did? It is equal if not worse.

      1. Unless you lived under a rock and did not follow what happened to wot, you would know what they did..

        Fucked up the balance of the game while trying to title it as a “fix”, arty did not get nerfed, but only changed to something else that is still a problem to the game, they fucked up the rng, and made the game more random, unenjoyable while titleing it as an esport product, accuracy nerfs, did nothing to balance premium ammunition, did nothing to fix the maps, they instead made it even worse, and more tunnel like. One of the biggest cuck ups lately were the pref mm premium change proposals, and their excuse on why they want to rip off so many players who spent tons of money on rare, special tanks with or without pref mm. They kept powercreeping all the tanks in the game, and they continue playing with the people by adding a new prob unbalanced meta tank, then later introduce another one that powercreeps the one before… eventually trying to keep people paying up if they want to have fun at the game… cuz actually balancing the whole game would not be benefitial then.

        I hope you are satisfied with the short answer i gave you..

  20. The amounts of Salt getting higher and higher. You buy a product. After a short time it does not work as intended anymore. You go to the store and either you get a new one that works as intended or you get your money back. That is called warranty.
    And such things are for example part of the EU law and here in Germany is even german law too. So, if WG make changes that make certain tanks worse, you have the right to want your loss back.
    WG knows that and that is the reason for their stupid EULA. Purchased goods are never yours and so there is no warranty. I am not even sure, if this is legal.
    So, please, go a step back, look at the whole picture and take a decision based on facts, not on emotions. You are grown humans, not teenagers.

  21. How about you leave TAP. I think that would be the best. Like who the f*ck cares about heroes? WG shouldn’t had charged so much for tanks anyway. With 30 euros you can buy really good games,yes, plural. Now imagine when you have hundreds of tanks. If people could get their money back legally, why shouldn’t they? only WG is allowed to do tricky business?

  22. These “tanks” are on lease. They are not yours, they dont even exsist.
    The longer you use them before they get changed the more you have
    gained from your investment.

    Its like “buying” high speed internet. You pay for the speed you have and
    if they change the speed to worse you dont get refunded for the time it
    was working.

    This is a dirty trick but sure feels good to have the power to bite back
    if you feel cheated, misstreated, butthurt or whatever.

    Human nature.

    1. It’s nothing like your high speed internet comparison.
      What would be closer is, if you buy a computer, and then then a year later the manufacturer through out an update that reduced the computers performance by 30%.

      Guess what? If that happened, you’d be entitled to a refund as the product you purchased no longer performs as advertised.
      Same shit applies to prem tanks that people paid money for.

      1. Im pretty sure there is a line in EULA that gives WG the
        right to change whatever they want.
        No, the tanks are not physical objects you can keep till
        the end of time.

        1. Actually, under EU regulations, they are exactly as physical goods.
          No EULA can ben actually enforced in a court of law as you as buyer had 0 power to negotiate it with the seller. There a few cases that got to trial where the EULA was thrown out as irrelevant.

  23. I’m astonished at the number of people who see nothing wrong with stealing from WG. Our world is certainly going downhill fast. Even if you feel they somehow stole from you, two wrongs don’t make a right. All you’re doing is sinking to their level and showing you’re no better than WG. Perhaps even worse since you chose to pay them. They aren’t choosing to pay you, you’re stealing from them. Shame on you. Shame on TAP for getting their hands dirty by participating in the promotion of this scam. And don’t claim you didn’t think anyone would do it and that you’re just providing information. You’re an accessory to a crime.

  24. There’s a middleman (Paypal),and under law he has the obligation to do a refund, with or without the consent of the supplier (WG). How is this considered stealing?

    If there was anyone stealing from WG that would be Paypal, and i seriously doubt these guys don’t know if what they do is legal or not.

    Also, if WG doesn’t want this to happen, they should start behaving like a serious company and reply when Paypal and others are trying to contact them and resolve the issue in a proper manner.

    WG has to realize that the world is not Russia. They can’t always do whatever they want. If they want to behave like jackasses and still profit then they should pull their games out of US and EU and sell their junk to RU morons who never knew anything about laws and obligations anyway.

  25. While i do agree that going forward with that moneyback process is questionable ethics, i think calling it “criminal act” is going way too far: 1st of all, it does not go against any law. 2ndly, this is included in the tems that WG agreed to when they decided to accept payment through paypal. I find it quite amusing that the most comonly used defence of WG’s monetary practices is that “it’s a company, so they must make money” but that is not mentioned now at all: they must have made a financial simulation and decided the added income would be more than the cost of such moneyback practices before they signed the contract with paypal.

    Is it questionable to use the “loophole”? Morally, yes. Legaly, no. It is said that 2 wrongs don’t make a right, but this it is also an actual method of relaying your disapproval to the company. They also had different practices betwen serves, which can be seen as discrimination, which, just the same, were immoral, but legal. I do not agree with either, but i do understand.

    This is not a white & black matter, and should not be argued for or against as such. It is most certainly not illegal, and it is not something that WG did not know about beforehand. The question is more like “do you wish to stoop to such lvls to make a statement?”

    Btw: a very similar issue is online purchassed goods returned within 15 of their aquisition for any other reason but actual faults. It is legal, but it is not moral, and it is wasteful. So if you ever bought somethign from amazon, opened it up, decided it’s not for you, and sent it back… well, that product will not be resold at full value, thus costing someone their profit margin. That will likely reflect in workers wages along the way, when the financial analysis of the product is made. Just because it is convenient for you, and is your “right”. Do you also call that stealing? As i said, legal although immoral. A bit hypocritical to take the high horse stance now.

    Disclaimer: i have not made use of this “loophole” nor am i planning to.

  26. You have to realize that you are not going against 1 but 2 companies.
    PayPal and WG sure has a bunch of lawyers ready to go after any
    sinister action with their fine prints.
    I rather think that PayPal teams up with WG than a bunch of butthurts.

  27. Just imagen if WG was treating the player base like customers like they did before. Like imagen that. We might not had this people go this route to show WG what bad customer / bad business practices are going to lead to. That being angry and rightfully pissed at what WG is doing to the game they spend REAL money and TIME into. But I’m sure if WG made the game worth the money and time again they get that lost money back. (unless you lost your trust like me)

    If it only was the stupid power creep tanks that was the problem.But the hole game is just taking the utter shit on consumers purchases. Even people that paid for there IS6 4years ago shooed get there money back. The hole company have changed and is doing changes to ruin the costumers time and enjoyment of the product. Like they broke the rules with power creeping tanks and making a MM that is just devaluing a paid product to the point you feel that your bait and switched. It is just fucking fair that the consumer uses what little consumer rights they have. Looks like WG is not handling this Russian rage quit very well. As they just had to address the problem ASAP when it started to take money from WG bank accounts.

    And they just say “have patient with us, 6 months to change some settings in match maker. We need to make it right and perfect before we go about doing it”. Like wtf? 6months to fix a problem that makes players Russian Rage quit? Fuck you WG. It is like we are just a bush of cows that can’t do anything but Muuuuuuu!

    Funny how they don’t like it even now just recently they had the Russian refund towards us. Maybe you get the same kind of treatment as you are treating others? Not to talk about 3 5 7 MM and all this outer stupid stuff. Like what about gold ammo spam and corridor maps? That was a problem even before this shit happend. To say that peaple are just stealing money from WG is like saying that waiting years to get your lawn mower back don’t mean you can just walk up and take it back from your nai bros garage…
