Ubisoft Uses Missleading Advertising for Heros of Might & Magic 7 Collectors Edition

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Seems like Ubisoft is at it again, They're definitely trying to over take EA on the hate train. Which is fairly easy considering-*/-* EA's recent company changes make EA "For the player". 

 

Ubisoft this time has misleadingly advertised their Heros of Might and Magic 7 Collectors Edition, They've advertised it as a PC DVD ROM Game on their store page.

 

The game is listed as "PC" for the collectors Edition VS. "PC Download" for the standard edition.

 

When the box shipped, it came in loose packaging. The Lid was off and contents spilled out when it opened. 

 

BUUUUT. There's a big empty spot where, you guessed it! The DVD's are designed to fit.

 

Imgur user Melchior1090 posted this screenshot of a support ticket sent to Ubisoft and their response to their issue.

Ubisoft have changed this issue on another page but it still shows the physical box for the game.

 

This only affects US residents, customers revived physical disks in the EU.

 

All of this is on top of ANOTHER half assed buggy mess Ubisoft has made, which is currently getting destroyed by reviews on steam and other websites.

What do you guys think about Ubisoft now?

EA, doesn't really seem bad at all compared to this. 

I think this is ridiculous and Ubisoft should of issued refunds if people wanted them...

Because the game was activated against their will as well that's even worse...

Imo EA > Ubisoft.. (Even though EA still sucks with it's quite shitty games, at least they're not idiotic assholes who fuck everything up)

 

Like damn, how many times of massively fucking up does it take to learn your lesson?

UB is the new EA.

 

One time my ACU game save got deleted from their cloud. The local save got corrupted. 20 hours gone. Their support wouldn't do shit for me as it wasn't their policy. I had to essentially blackmail them. I made a YT video of how terrible their service was and how many Ubisoft games that I had. I said that I would take it down after they helped me. Eventually it got shared to UbiCentral and he hooked me up with their PR guy and I was able to get my save back with a free copy of The Crew. Not the most glorious process.

Battlefront isn't bad and I have not encountered any glitches. Hopefully they are on an upward path.

Not all of their games are shitty, but I know what you mean.

This has been said ever since Watch Dogs, lol.

 

I don't think Ubisoft really cares since they're going to be raking in all the sales of Ass Creed and Far Cry series games.

FC4 was good and nobody can deny that. Good thing I didn't have to pay for it (GeForce promo.)

Haven't played it yet. I'm gonna wait until it's like $10 or something around that - but I've heard it's just a FC3 expansion essentially.

Wait what?, they sell the collector's edition without a physical disk?

Forget the shovel, Ubisoft might need one of these.

Damn Ubisoft is greedy. Someone should sue Ubisoft for false advertisement.

Looks like an administrative error. Not the same as the intent to mislead consumers. Imgur is not a reliable source of information btw.

Compared to Nazi germany you're right, stalin's brutal communism doesn't seem all that bad. 

 

EA and Ubisoft are still both big, red, X's in my book. Ubisofts is just getting bigger, while EA's slowly gets smaller.

Just look at wow wod failure, instead of fixing whats wrong they gave up making same mistake again that they did in mop, currently last reports from Q2 2015 say wow has 5.6m subs next report in november will probably be another 2-3m sub losses.

Devs that insult community etc by saying minor patch is a content patch, or saying there won't be more content anymore, + lot other mistakes they did since launch no apologies at all for those mistakes.

They wanna do yearly expansions, while no one wants yearly expansions they just want more bang for buck, the last amazing expansion they made was wotlk and its been going downhill ever since.

God damn it Ubisoft.

You not only screwed up Heroes of Might and Magic, now you also screw up the advertising for the game?

You can earn tokens by playing the game and pay for subscription like that and those people are not accounted in regular paid subscription numbers (afaik) and therefore those numbers seem to be declining (among other reasons). And I know people that do that (2 of them).

And the same people told me that there have been issues with bugs, not fixing them and instead releasing new content. Got ahold of that info yesterday, before writing my previous post.  :lol:

Since I don't play WoW I didn't know that, because I don't know any other Blizzard title that has problems (I played almost all of them).

Ubisoft just realized that they make way more money through false advertising than they do through actually making good games. Apparently it hasn't come back to bite them yet since they keep doing it.

I don't think it was a huge fail, it was ok, not bad and unplayable. Much better now true.
