Like many others and after a very long waiting time, I got the answer to my refund ticket on Ubisoft Connect.
"We cannot refund u, because u have allready startet the game."
So how can we find out if the game is not what was promised without starting it? We cannot (maybe buying, not playing and scouring the forums = but then why did u already buy?)
Cyberpunk 2077 also did also make a horrible bad launch performance on some platforms, but atleast CD Project Red allowed refunds of games, which were already played to salvage some of their reputation. And it feels like ubisoft doesn`t really care about their reputation.
Like killing the chickens to get the eggs.
When a few country`s already cracking down on lootboxes, I really hope there will be a move to change laws to make the practices of releasing bugged games to meet holidaysales illegal.
I am really someone who never makes post and is in only-read-mode, but valhalla has driven me just so far.
I am but one person, but I will not forget.
I will be waiting for your next AC game and I will be damned if I don't take time out of my day the make a post to make others remember this mess and what preordering brought us.
Doens't really feel good to be a dead chicken.....
