Blizzard is handing out refunds to players of Diablo III in South Korean over server issues stemming from Error 37. The firm’s refund policy originally allow for returns of a game already used, but South Korean law guarantees refunds of products within seven days; therefore, the firm had to comply. Players under level 40 can apply for a refund starting June 25 and until July 3, and going forward, those who are level 20 and below can obtain a refund within two weeks of purchase date. Those above level 40 are out of luck. Last month, the Korean Fair Trade Commission steeped into Blizzard’s Seoul offices to investigate after numerous claims were filed against the firm. Via WSJ.

Blizzard’s Seoul offices were raided by Korean authorities this week due to customer complaints filed with the country’s Fair Trade Commission. Customers complained to the body Blizzard refused to offer refunds to players unhappy with the game, and the FTC is currently investigating whether the firm was “ill-prepared” for the amount of players crushing its game servers. It is also looking into whether Blizzard’s no-return policy violates Korean law on electronic commerce and commercial contracts. A spokeperson for the FTC told The Korean Times it had received enough complaints from Diablo III players to launch the investigation, despite Blizzard adding more servers to help alleviate some of the player crush. If the firm is found to be acting counter to FTC laws, it will be forced to issue refunds to those who request it. Thanks, Shack.
