Complete Ripoff
I bought Legendary Way, Way back before everyone could play and see how bad the game was, and after a while, I quit to see if they'd improve. Well, upon trying to come back, I tried to login and had issues, so I submitted a ticket, claimed my legendary badge on the forums, and came back the next day. Upon returning the next day, I tried to login and was greeted with a permanent fairfight ban. On an account that has been unused for months, and that wasn't banned yesterday. Hmm.

In short, this game has been my worst purchase, Ever, and is a shining example of what is wrong with supporting a game in development. I can't believe I wasted 200 bucks on this game only to get screwed. I would be more than happy to release any info that may prove that I have not cheated, and have not logged into my account in ages, however, I fully expect this thread to be locked and deleted. Please prove me wrong, I dare you.

Edit: to clarify, I'm pasting my post from further down this thread.

Yall are really missing a big part of the point here.

1.) The devs have obviously gotten away with this before, and will again, which is a huge problem.

2.) The entire concept of "We're banning you, and because we're banning you, we can't look into your claim that this is an illegitimate ban" is circular reasoning, and wrongheaded.

3.) Despite claims like this, and a very negative history, there are still people (trolls?) that whiteknight this game and it's devs.

4.) These whiteknights are happy to claim that you should just buy the game again, since it's so cheap, when that only furthers and supports the problems with this company.

It is my personal belief, that Hammerpoint is trying to milk whatever cash they can from ISS before they close it down for good. See the "new game" that they are coming out with, described as, "an evolution of the ISS, it still uses some of the art assets from the existing game, and it does more feel like 'ISS as it supposed to be released back in 2012' than a completely new game" source: http://forums.infestationmmo.com/index.php?/topic/148552-infestation-new-beginning-what-do-we-know-so-far/


And finally, since people have been saying, "why would you blow money like that on this or any game, blah blah." I'll interject that I make a lot of money. I enjoy gaming, since I was nearly killed in a car accident 10 years ago, gaming has really been a source of pleasure, a way to do activities with my family that don't hurt, and in general, a highlight in my life since then. As such, I _enjoy_ investing my money in games that look interesting to me, I've spent thousands in League of Legends, Marvel Heroes, Infinite Crisis, and Firefall, for example. In all of the early access/kickstarter campaigns/etc, that I have been a part of, the only one I regret is The WarZ (Infestation: Survivor Stories) It is for that reason that I've brought this up on the Steam forums, and will bring it up elsewhere, Hammerpoint is a disgrace to the gaming community, and to game developers in general.

UR acc was hacked

Sounds like your account got hacked/hijacked so would recommend changing your password for steam maybe even get a new email account. No one here can help you even if we wanted to and why should your thread get locked/deleted?
Weldon Jun 11 @ 1:50pm 
because there's a long history of locking negative threads on these forums? because my account got hacked, I lose over $200? If Blizard doesn't screw it's customers, why do these people do it?

Agreed this game sucks, a streamer friend of mine was asking for a deal in bulk for a give away, in the end he's forum banned for 'trolling" not to mention the foolish forum post the dev made saying "Our games unhackable" then even now nearly a year later they still have a prevelant aimbot and esp issue..

The legend accounts had a month free stronghold when you purchesed the legendry account. And when they relized that alot of people still had there legend accounts they realized they was gunna lose alot of money so they banned all of them. The clan that I was in everyone's legend account got banned all at the same time in middle of streaming. We all put up a ticket but no reply.. then out of nowhere apparently we all 13 of us was hacking lol really hacking?!? what a joke!! why do we need to hack if we have a team of 13 including me .. and i'm gunna be honest we wasnt that good. and i think we had about 5 dead clan member at that point then BAM!! BANNED !! Yeah i agree with you total waste of money and time!!

I did create a ticket, here's some email copy/paste for you.

Initial Ticket:
Hi, I purchased the legendary edition of The WarZ a long time ago, and decided to download it again and give it another shot. However, I was unable to login to my account, could find no "migrate" or "upgrade" feature, and upon trying to redeem my old key, found it to still be in use. My email for the WarZ is the same as I am sending this email from, [email removed], I'd like to access the account I paid $200 for, thanks for your swift response.

After a day went by, I tried loging in to find that I was now banned. (never redeamed my month of stronghold rental) and recieved this response:

Greetings,

Please note that Support is unable to assist with this account as it was closed legitimately. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Regards,

Infestation Support



Now, if it wasn't banned the day before, and yet it was banned After I submitted a ticket, met with a response of "we're not helping," I'm crying foul. I've had my WoW account hacked, and you know what blizard did? They recovered all my stuff, reset my password, and sent me on my way. One look at the IP that supposedly caused this "legitimate" ban would prove it didn't come from me.
Weldon Jun 11 @ 5:33pm 
Also, note that I didn't recieve that response from support until After I made this thread.

could be server rentals / marketplace

still from the reply he's banned. game over, and it does not sound like they will unban him, so its time to move on, nothing nobody can do... lots of other zombie games on steam and lots more coming in the months to come... at least he didnt get banned from $80-$120 game like you see in ea forums all the time... reminds me i'm waiting for battlefield hardline beta, sadly unlike cod dice dont do zombies for battlefield, nor dinosaurs :(!

You seem to confuse these forums with the official one, they cannot just lock threads they dont like a mod will be the judge of that, they once tryed but kinda backfired on them. But gotta ask what have you been paying 200$ for btw? You got 20+ hours so have a hard time believing that they went for serverrental also because you say that you used to play the game before there were anyone else playing the game hench before private servers were even implemented("I bought Legendary Way, Way back before everyone could play and see how bad the game was, and after a while, I quit to see if they'd improve") so please tell me what have you been using your hard earned cash on, the marketplace???

What do you mean by "a deal in bulk for a giveaway", did he want free stuff or how is that to be understood?

illiterate, He was going to pay full price per individual game, just a deal to buy them all at once as to one at a time, that is all, illiterate.
