With the break between Activision Blizzard e Netease and the Diablo company’s related blocking of games on Chinese territory, more than a million local players started asking refunds for unused in-app purchases.
NetEase of its own explained how to get them. On February 1, the Chinese company launched a special channel dedicated to Chinese gamers. Refunds will be granted to all those who have purchased virtual coins of Blizzard games that have not been used. Among the titles that are part of the initiative are World of Warcraft, Overwatch 2 and Hearthstone.
Gifts and rewards are non-refundable. Even owners of accounts at risk of security cannot ask for refunds.
Refund requests must be made before June 30th, otherwise the money will be forfeited. According to GameLook, there are more than a million users queuing up for refunds, for amounts ranging between 100 and 300 yuan (about €15-45).
The break between Blizzard and NetEase was particularly dramatic, so much so that it caused a decidedly broken reaction from the Chinese company.
