A streamer under the nickname rainyday posted an interesting correspondence on his twitter. In the summer, he hosted a draw for Cyberpunk 2077 in the PC version. The competition has recently ended, the winner has been revealed, but he doesn’t want to play.
An unnamed user requires money, because he bought the game itself earlier, played a decent amount of time, realized that it was bad, but could no longer ask for a refund.
Hi rainy, I won Cyberpunk 2077 in your giveaway in August, but I’ve spent quite some time playing the game and can’t request a refund. Since the game is so bad, I think I deserve a gift card instead. I would like $ 100, but I will accept $ 50 too. You kind of owe me.
Obviously, the streamer clearly did not expect such a turn of events and tried to reason with the user.
Let me try to understand.
You won a game that costs $ 70. A game that works great on PC. A game that you shouldn’t be given just like that. And you decided that if the game is bad (it is not, because you played a lot of time), then I should give you something at a similar cost?
The streamer posted a few more screenshots of the correspondence in the following tweets. It follows from them that the unnamed user does not meet halfway and still requires a gift card instead of Cyberpunk 2077 in an amount equal to the cost of the game.
Recently, a similar situation surfaced on the network – players who requested a refund for Cyberpunk 2077 complained to tech support that they could no longer play the game.
