Elemental Patched

The Elemental Forums have the change log for a new version 1.08b patch for Elemental: War of Magic that's now available through Impulse. The new version has a bunch of changes, including the beta version of the strategy game's multiplayer support, which they explain like this: "We designated multiplayer as 'beta' because we disabled playing against AI until next week. I had written a lot of AI code this week that is in the single player version but had not been adequately tested for MP. We didnít want to give players the impression that was considered the feature set in multiplayer as being all thatís coming." They also discuss the future: "Next week we anticipate releasing v1.09 which will continue to address issues that were not found in the initial release, improve computer AI further and provide it and other new MP features. After that, we will begin focusing on v1.1 which will be the first post-release update that is designed specifically to extending game play." Thanks Big Download.

For what it's worth, it's really easy to get a refund. Coming here complaining that you should have bought Civ 5 instead is kind of disingenuous since you CAN get a refund on Elemental. Let's see you get one if you decide you hate Civ 5...

How? Tell us how you can get such a refund. You can't return opened software. EBgames/Gamestop won't take back PC games used.

People got screwed huge, months later this game still isn't playable with the FULL feature set it promised upon release.

Did you actually buy it from one of those places? I only ask because one of the biggest complaints was that it was hardly available on store shelves, only directly from Stardock.

That said, it's not hard to go to their site and learn how to get a refund. If you can't be bothered to find out on your own then I'm not going to hold your hand. Perhaps you are one of those people who post "their opinion" when they didn't even actually buy the game?

Mind you I'm just as disappointed as everyone else at how it ended up being released and I'm hardly a fanboy. I'm just pointing out the fact that Stardock has always been, in my experience, accommodating and they will take care of you if you bother to take it up with them instead of random whining on random forums. But I understand why expecting a bit of effort might be asking too much from some.
