Gamers don't have the courage of their convictions. It will be like the boycott COD group playing the new COD on day one. Few players will ask for refunds percentage wise. The devs know this and this is a pr win with low monetary cost.
Or another possibility. That each person speaks for themselves, so when 10 people come here and whine, ultimately it is 10 people not 10,000. Those getting their money back are getting what they want. Those not asking for money back are getting what they want. The people you speak to seem to be people that want their money back, but rather complain about it then go getting it, imo that will be few. It isn't near everyone that wants their money back and we have to respect that, that what we conclude isn't always what another will do.
SOE has 3 large scale games in beta/dev: H1, Landmark and Next, the two we can get our hands on... wow they have a lot of work in front of them and a LOT OF DIRECTION needed. I wonder if this is what past projects looked like internally and now we see it, or if they've slid a bit back, I know Landmark while in some ways pushing the envelope forward a game needs to be in there to.
