Some people did the financial breakdowns for War Z market place. Just think about this for a minute. .75 per round of .50 cal bullets. Each single bullet. .25 cents per round normal rounds. Per round <------------ Caters to gaming addiction. You know the last company who thought of this method of gaming? EA with Battlefield 3. They originally wanted to sell people ammo clips, a dollar per clip. At least common sense came over the EA execs. Whats Hammerpoints excuse? :D

This was the one thing I kept pointing out though from the start of the War Z fiasco. How can you trust this company with your credit card info. Even worse, some people paid with debit cards. Probably not knowing that they dont offer the same protections as credit cards. IF they took 1000.00 out or your savings or bank account via debit card, at best you might see only 20% of that back.

Don't know if EA ever actually specifically planned to go there, but Riccitiello certainly did talk about it as an example of where he would like to take microtransactions.

Scummy as hell.

As for this SNAFU, ultimately payments and transactions is the responsibility of xsolla. Which is another quite questionable company handling payments for Hammerpoint. There's no way I'd deal with them. Best of luck to this guy getting a straight answer from them though.

How can people still defend this scam? This is getting out of hand. I wish they would just run with the money and pull the plug on this game.

Oh they will soon, the nearer we get to the standby the more shady stuff is going down it apears.
They are trying to commit gaming suicide it seems so they get shut down and they dont need to keep going when the standalone is out.
They can just happily walk away with all the money.

It certainly appears that way. I can't wait to read the reactions of the fanboys when that happens :)

Haha, it will be "oh...ehhhhhh well they had every right to do so, they are corageous and amazing people. We are just so lucky we got to play it while we could".
