Heroes of the Storm Dropping DX9 and 32-bit Clients

Blizzard announces plans to drop support for DirectX 9 and 32-bit clients in Heroes of the Storm this summer. They say that most of those playing their MOBA are using the 64-bit client under DirectX 11 or higher, but apologize to those affected by this. They recommend everyone upgrade, and also note there may also be potential problems with DirectX 10 (or as we prefer, DirectX X). Here's word:
In the coming months, we’re planning to end support for DirectX9 and the 32-bit version of the Heroes of the Storm client. DirectX has had several major releases since DX9, and the vast majority of players in the Heroes community are now running the 64-bit version of the game, along with DirectX11 or higher.

Once support ends, Heroes of the Storm will no longer run for players who are attempting to use the 32-bit game client or DirectX9. Please also note that while the 64-bit Heroes client might still be playable on some machines using DirectX10, this may not be the case for all configurations, which is why we recommend that all our players upgrade to at least DirectX11.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you‘re not already using the 64-bit Heroes of the Storm client and DX11 or higher, we encourage you to consider making the switch prior to July of this year, which is when we aim to go live with the planned changes.

And Blizzard is offering full refunds to those that cannot meet the new requirements right?
I personally have never bought, or played it, but if anyone's computer does not match the new minimum requirements, by law, they are required to to offer a full refund of the price the person paid, or some way to play the game in another way.
There is already case presidence for this.

Please feel free to quote actual precedent rather than just you know declaring it exists with zero references

And if you're gonna bring up OtherOS for the PS3 that isn't relevant here so try again
