Warcraft 3: Reforged has not had a good first week. With player complaints that the game changed too much and rampant technical issues, the relaunch isn’t living up to Warcraft 3’s illustrious legacy. Seemingly aware of the game’s flaws, Blizzard is now offering instant refunds for Warcraft 3: Reforged via tickets on its website.

According to fans on the subreddit, Blizzard support will grant players a refund regardless of how much time they’ve spent on the game. User krOnicLTD played the final version of Warcraft 3: Reforged for over five hours, and still received a refund without issue. Many other users in the comment section echoed how easy the process was, and confirmed their ability to refund the game using the link above.

Players are unhappy with Warcraft 3: Reforged for a number of reasons — most of which are laid out on the damning Warcraft 3: Refunded website. Players feel Blizzard broke many of its original promises, such as the cutscene quality of campaign overhauls.

In our experience, the game hasn’t lived up to the quality we experienced at BlizzCon 2018. We originally praised the game for how different it was from the original. But after launch, it seems Blizzard went a safer, less interesting route, leading to player dissatisfaction.
