Yet Another Reason Grim Dawn Sucks

Post by atom0s » Fri Mar 18, 2016 10:18 pm

I was linked to a new thread on the Grim Dawn forums tonight in a joking manner talking about how Grim Dawn has basically fucked over early supporters.
You can see the thread here:
http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35636

Basically, the jist of what's happening here is that anyone that backed the game during its early access, as well as kick starter times, was told they would receive a DRM-free copy of the game when it was ready. Meaning you would have both the version you currently bought and had access to, plus a DRM-free copy later. However, this is no longer the case now. Instead, you have to pick one or the other. If you want the DRM free copy and you do have valid access to it, you have to surrender your current Steam copy if you activated it.

I bought Grim Dawn during the early access backing time where I was told, via the site, that buying it would give me a Steam copy and a DRM copy of the game. Now that wording is magically gone from the site and this thread is saying otherwise.

But, that's the great part of the internet, things do not get lost or forgotten. Here you can find the original wording that many are referring to:

The wording here states that buying into this tier (the one I circled in red) would give you access to play now. It also states that you can download the full game DRM free on release. No where does this say you lose your current playable copy. No where does this say you have to pick or choose which copy you want.

So I really do hope Grim Dawn gets pirated to hell and back now and makes close to nothing if they want to pull asshole moves like this on their backers.

Anytime I get asked if Grim Dawn is worth playing, my opinion is always no. I would never recommend this game to anyone, and now with tactics like this, I would never recommend Crate games as a whole to anyone.

Another post showing proof that Steam+DRM copies were supposed to be supported on purchase:

I'll probably be seeking a refund for fraud via Steam for my copy since I don't play the game and was screwed out of what I paid for.

I noticed the changes from the very first one they canceled: Alpha Access for all backers. They changed to a Steam only access, which left those of us that know distribution registration is DRM out of the fray. Contacting them, they provided the first of many excuses. Their latest one, the DRM / third party registered distribution access was my own breaking point. It resolved itself with a refund of my monies and torrenting.

I, like you state in this post, will never recommend anyone purchase GD. For that matter, I will also never recommend any of their products or company.
