It's an A-bomb kind of week *sigh*.
A-bomb to Halo 5. I finally decided to get an Xbox one, so I could play Halo 5. I play the series primarily to go through the story co-op with my hubby, and do couch multiplayer with family and friends. Well. Screw you, Microsoft. I can't do either. Didn't even occur to me to check such a thing since that's never happened in the history of Halo. I returned the stupid thing, games and all.
A-bomb to FFXIV's 'Customer Service' (Settle down, Magicman, it's not about the actual game). I tried to sub for six months for the hubby and I so we could get back into it, but it kept giving me two seperate errors. After several tries (and a call to my bank to be double-y sure), I put in a ticket describing my issue in detail. I got back a canned response that made it clear they never read my ticket, to which I responded that their reply had nothing to do with my problem and that I was still having it. To date (this was almost a week ago), they have not replied back except to tell me to fill out a survey on my 'experience'. Oh believe me, I filled out that survey and told them exactly what I thought. Careful Square, you're not the only game out there, and you wouldn't be the first to make me walk away due to terrible service.
QOTW : I have the same mindset for Daybreak since they canceled landmark , shut down and fuck off , i don't care under what overlord they serve ,they do not deserve mercy or redemption , they screwed over too many players to many times .
