It was more trying to get the point across a bunch of us purchased the game to play multiplayer and basically a year later multiplayer was still not working. After waiting almost a year for the game to become playable i figured asking for a refund was within my rights as a consumer. Yes it was a year later, and yes I had zero expectation of actually getting money back( once again it wasnt the point).
If I go to my local Ford dealership, and buy a new Escape take it home and find half the features on the car were either not installed right, or not finished at all I would give the dealer a chance to fix it. If they did not I would expect a refund. The sticker on the car said, A.B.C.D. and I got A,D...
This relates directly to purchasing software. They said at my time of purchase this is what id be getting, and i didnt get that. The difference is I trusted StarDock to fix the game, in my opinnion they havent yet. Glad to see they are still working on it, but otherwise im really unhappy with the unfinished product. Not you may say look a year went by why didnt you ask for a refund? Simple. I trusted the maker to take care of me. I gave them the benifit of the doubt and my money and let them run with it. I was wrong. Its just further proof that game companies are getting more careless with our money and there products. And even Stardocks not immune.
And at the end of the day it was only.. what did I pay for my box set collectors edition...60.70.80... dollars? Something like that? Maybe more. Also purchased the game pre order before Brads whole Multiplayer Essay b.s. which should have been a huge red flag. live and learn.
