They make it too much like D2 and one group complains.
They make it too different from D2 and another group complains.
They try to find a middle ground and both still complain.

It's early still. We'll see what happens.

Several of these are being denied because people aren't willing to fork over a picture of their ID. They need proof that the person contacting them is the person registered to the account.
They're not stealing identities from it as they already have that info.
It's a deterrent to keep ex's and siblings from getting revenge on each other this way.

Don't know about all of the denials though. Impossible to know who is being honest.

Lmao that would be amazing if true, copying your passport and sending it to a Chinese or Indionese support guy? Yeah, THAT is a great idea. I wouldn't trust support people to that extend... especially since they are outsourced, and 100% violate the GDPR at all times... so in Europe, that would not be a thing I guess.
Outsourced?
All of Blizzard's North America player support is in Irvine CA and Houston TX. With the bulk in the Houston office. A large chunk of the Irvine staff will hit up Disneyland after work on Friday nights. I walked through with some of my friends from there who pointed out a ton of people.

I am European, Texas or Beijing, makes no difference to me.
Of course it doesn't. You're just using this as an opportunity to take shots at Blizz. It doesn't matter to you that the EU offices are in France and Ireland.
The only area that doesn't have an office in the area is S. America. They get handled by the North America offices. They were able to hire enough American residents that spoke all the languages needed for South America.
The only group that has an issue is the French Canadians. Cause their stuck with English language support. Unless they want to open an EU account instead.
Oh and a correction. I wrote Houston for the Texas office but it's actually in Austin.

My understanding from the people I know in Blizz is that this was inevitable. Even though they don't want to get involved at all.

Of course more automation is taking jobs away. In some places there's no one to fill those positions. We have an able work-force but many are not willing.

No true everywhere obviously. I imagine the insurance costs for the machinery is why different then for humans.

News Comments > Gearbox Responds to Union Beef

10. Re: Gearbox Responds to Union Beef Oct 1, 2019, 17:21 Brazor
 
The nurses at a hospital I worked at bailed on their union. They had safety issues that needed to be addressed by Congress but the Union reps were only concerned about increasing the pay rate. Even though the bulk of the nurses said they didn't need the raise and that the safety issues were far more important.
The issues were with the laws at it's core. The hospitals and insurance companies can't change it. So the unions we'ren't going to budge. They just accused some of the nurses of being Republicans when most were life long Dems.

If your industry requires unions then it's as good as dead.

I never finished 1, 2 or pre-sequel. So I'm not in a rush to pick this up. I have other things I'm playing too.

I'll think about picking this up later. After the initial launch bugs and DRM issues are worked out. It's also an opportunity to see what 2K investors decide to do after they think the community is complacent....and for Randy to run his mouth again. Which he will eventually.

Too many people logging in at once.
Too many people trying to buy a subscription. The banks are auto-rejecting several transactions. Though plenty more are not setting up their PayPal account correctly or they're entering the wrong numbers from their cards.

Nothing unusual.

Just hope the game is good and not terribly buggy at launch. Though always expect some bugs.
Also hope that it isn't bogged down by MTX.

Ideally, yes. Companies should stop selling the keys. Though, in counter-point: what kind and how much collateral damage will occur? How many legit players will be lost, if any.

My friends who work in Support at Blizzard have talked about the G2A keys for years. They get thousands of customers who contact them for help because the the G2A keys were pulled due to credit card fraud. They are always advising customers to stay away from G2A as it's just a site for money laundering.

Anyone can lie about their age online.

And that's a little problem that can easily be fixed with the right tools.

Issue a coded number on a card linked to your birth date only, with a personal PIN that you have to provide to verify your age online to every citizen.

Kids can "steal" the parent's card ( or memorize the code ), but without knowing the PIN, they're fucked.

The seller's system automatically checks the coded number against the birth date database, if you're not 18, it refuses to accept the order.

There, easy simple fix.

Sure the parent can give the PIN, but then he'd have to be aware of what is happening with the kid, leaving room for PARENTING to happen.
How is a seller going to know for sure if an adult is involved at all with 100% certainty? If someone wants to file charges against a game dev for selling to a minor, then they need to prove that the dev knew for sure who was at the device that made the purchase. The only way a company could do that is if they had access to a webcam or forward facing camera on a tablet. Which is a major privacy concern. That's if the camera exists in the first place......and the user doesn't have paper taped over it.
I would love to see more parents doing their job. Not going to happen any time soon.

LOL can children even buy loot boxes? do they have credit cards and shit?
Children make a coked up ferret look like a quadriplegic.

Epic Games Refunds Family After Son Spends $1,200 on Fortnite

12 year old spends nearly 700 on video game in three days

17-year-old uses his dad's credit card to spend $7,600 playing 'FIFA'

As for shit, they don't call them diaper dirtiers for nothing.


Yeah, but did the child have a credit card, or were the parents negligent? Children cant buy loot boxes, their parents buy them for them.

If a kid swipes $20 from mom's purse, and goes into a store to buy a pack of scratch lotto tickets, is it the parents fault for failing to keep money out of reach from the child?

The bigger picture is that the child should not have access to a consumable product that presents gambling as entertainment. So the sales clerk at the store will not sell it to the child; we as a society made laws to protect children because they are vulnerable to gambling entertainment due to a lack of understanding the value of money.
A gas station clerk can look at the kid and tell. A game Dev nor publisher can tell who's at the keyboard or tablet. Anyone can lie about their age online.
Besides, it's not the kids that are the big money makers. It's adults. The minors just make good news pieces.

That's politics for you. "Protecting" children. Won't stop loot boxes.
They're not even trying. Just looking to earn some votes off of a hot topic.
