While Blizzard might have been enjoying the wave of success that it had with Diablo 3, which apparently is the fastest selling game on the PC, it looks like the company might have gotten itself into a spot of trouble with the South Korean Fair Trade Commission (FTC). So, why would the FTC get involved with Diablo 3, you might ask? It seems that all the server errors and being unable to login has resulted in average of 150 complaints being filed a day. On top of that, there have also been numerous complaints about hacked accounts which Blizzard has since issued a statement for.
At the moment the South Korean FTC has stated that they are going to “look into the situation” and there’s no word if they will be taking any action, but if they’re going to be the first, we wouldn’t be surprised if the effect snowballed and other trade commissions around the world start investigating Blizzard as well. What do you guys think? Do you think that Blizzard’s attempt at creating an always-on game has backfired, and do you think that all this attention could force them to ultimately create an offline version of the game?Related articles:
