    Looks like EA is working hard to get that "Worst Company Of The Year" award again...

    Not sure I agree with that. The conditions for refund are:
    Refund requests can be made within 24 hours after you first launch the game, within seven days from your date of purchase, or within seven days from the game's release date if you pre-ordered

    I met ALL those conditions and nowhere on Origin's or EA's guarantee does it say if you have been charged you have to deal with customer service.

    Also on the refund guarantee page it says: Visit your Order History and select the Request a Refund link next to any eligible product.

    When I went to my order history, it plainly said Not Eligible for Refund. That's when I had to contact customer service through chat.

    What about it?

    • There is no "Overwatch Campaign" so that's a moot point.
    • Every map and hero is available to everyone who purchases the base game.
    • Overwatch only has cosmetics in its loot boxes.

    I really don't see the parallels you're going for mate.

    Still lootboxes, cosmetic or not.

    I'm keeping an eye on the game, I really enjoyed the closed alpha and the beta tbh and I'm happy they tweaked three times the loot boxes. But as of now it's still too much smartphone pay2win-ish, no one can objectively deny it.

    I know they're going to tweak the system even more because the overwhelmingly negative reception of those micro-transactions can really hurt shareholders trust toward EA, that's the only thing that can scare them, players satisfaction they don't care since the PS3/X360 era imho when the game-as-a-service trend started.

    Don't push too far, I don't care (along with many other players) about cosmetics lootboxes, Rainbow six Siege or Overwatch have a very healthy business model. Between DLC that divide the player base and cost 60E (premium/season pass) and cosmetics-only loot boxes I've made my choice.
