Looks like DC Universe Online’s new Amazon Fury Part 2 was plagued with glitches and now players will suffer the consequences. Sony Online Entertainment was purchased by Columbus Nova and changed to Daybreak Games and customers will have to forfeit all the armor they received from the recently removed Throne Of The Dead Raid . There will be no reimbursement.
Fans were able to change their character’s power to Quantum for $9.99 and use it to tunnel through a wall allowing them to defeat the boss without having to fight all the ads in, as some players refereed to this as, a “Tactical Advantage“
But Daybreak Games was quick to label this a glitch and are now quick to punish those who used it. Since the controversial buyout of SOE customers have reported that they’ve removed all technical support Via Live Chat and phone support. What does that mean? We, as consumers, have been experiencing delays, up to two week.
This is defiantly not good for the players as many of them have spent a lot of money on Marketplace points in respect to their characters. They grabbed up replay badges to have a do-over for the raid and also purchase total recovery kits in order to remove their mods from their gear that they have farmed for 900 points for a 10 pack which is the equivalent of $10.
Customers will soon log-in to find that not only that their armor has been removed but also that the mods they so heavily farmed online to get are gone. Officially a bad start for Daybreak and it’s new acquisition. That means that already many customers have lost hope in a company that holds rights to properties such as Everquest, Planetside 2 and H1Z1 to name a few.
I know if I spent tons of money on any game along with a $14.99 subscription service to be told that my armor was going to get removed as well as my hard earned farmed mods I would be pretty upset, that would be like saying that those using the Dying Light glitch to duplicate their weapons will have their game banned and their saves corrupted because of it.
Recent reports of layoffs could be the warning signs on the way toward the downfall of a company. I tried to reach Daybreak and DC Universe Online but we were quick to get auto responses and told that this matter is no longer up for discussion. So what do you think? Do you believe the players should be punished for a flaw in the game? Should the developers make tons of money while we’re tossed aside?
