Does Sega get a big fat refund from Denuvo for Denuvo FAIL?
The Sonic Mania DLC was cracked on DAY ONE.

Sega, you have legitimate customers who have bought your other titles but refuse to buy anything with Denuvo. You are shunning a large portion of the PC gaming market by using Denuvo, and this group is growing by the day.

Would the most rabid Denuvo defender argue that Sega is not entitled to a giant refund from Denuvo being a complete and utter failure? It's DENUVO who are the real crooks in this story with their lies and snake oil.

Was it a complete waste of money which could have been SAVED but also translated into more sales because there are people like me who hate Denuvo with every fibre of their being?

Remember folks, if you had trouble with thet "Offline Bug" just bear in mind the pirates had the luxury of having this feature uncompromised, and with the added bonus of Denuvo not gobbling up resources like a greedy pig.

Can we *please* not antagonise the company we're asking to do the sensible thing...?

Denuvo's use is irrefutably reducing sales. We can encourage them to reconsider its use once it has failed in a more constructive way...

I'm antagonizing Denuvo not Sega. If this is thought provoking to Sega perhaps they might actually consider getting a refund for having the Denuvo cracked on day one?

If I had my tires replaced and they popped upon leaving the mechanic, I'd do the same thing.

Steam had a great thing going on until Denuvo showed up.

I'm gonna have to agree with the OP on this, Denuvo has done nothing but make people mad. Best Sonic Game in 15 years? 10/10? Pfft denuvo just revokes all that

Oh and the OP has a Private Profile too now ain't that a surprise.

Technically Denuvo didnt really protect the DLC Considering the DLC Was cracked Months ago on PS4 and it wasnt even cracked in that way on mania itself people used the dev stuff we arent supposed to have acess to

You don't even own the game so why bother coming here? to start drama?

You're probably the butthurt kid that responded to me on Twitter then immediately bawwlocked me afterwards.

Look I'm against DRM as much as the next person but you should be taking this up with Sega not the Steam forums.

It can't hurt, but please be aware you'll just get a form response from a first-line support that has been instructed to disregard you.

Because Steam is totally not doing that. The only response whiners get here is getting pointed at for being whiners who only complain about Denuvo. Sounds so much better, am I right? Sigh...
i bought this game. the original release. day one.
...everything was fine. this denuvo♥♥♥♥♥♥is a myth. the game can be modded, the game can be played offline.
if it werent screamed about by these cucks, i would have never have known this was a denuvo game.
i dislike drm, but this is ridiculous.

Arguably better a voice that might be heard than one that is purposefully being ignored.

Let's get some constructive talk going though. Given that we can be confident Sega support is told not to care, where would you recommend sending the message?

In the toilet where nobody can hear it. Torturing users and filling forum with toxicity isn't going to help anybody and surprisingly (not really), you're only going to annoy more people than not...

Ah, there is the forum's resident Denuvo Defenter™, was wondering where they were. Never fails to bump topics so more people notice them and complain about Denuvo in them.

To answer the OP's question: Yes. Leaked Denovu contracts state that the publisher does get a refund if the game is cracked within a certain period of time (usually one month).
