Blizzard offers Korean  Diablo III  refunds in light of server issues
Blizzard offers Korean Diablo III refunds in light of server issues
June 21, 2012 | By Mike Rose

Newsbrief: Following news that the South Korean government is investigating if Diablo III developer Blizzard Entertainment is violating the country's commercial laws by refusing to offer refunds on its latest game, Blizzard has now said that it will give refunds to anyone in the country affected by server issues.

Korea's Fair Trade Commission raided Blizzard's Seoul offices earlier this month after it received hundreds of complaints from users who said that server problems meant they could not play the game. Blizzard had originally said that it would not offer refunds to these users.

However, in a post on the Korean, and as translated by the Wall Street Journal, Blizzard has changed its mind and is now offering full refunds for these users. Users who have a character than is lower than level 40 in the game can apply for a refund from June 25 to July 3.
