OP  12/20/12 3:46:02 PM#1

Hi all=)

Well I did wrong as somehow (lag, wrong click) I purchased same armor part I've already got with karma points. As it was a lot of points, 42k, I've contacted custom support and asked for exchange.
I was not much surprised by the answer, where GM told they have no ability to refund or exchange items.
I know it's not a big deal, just like 3 more days of non stop karma farming, but it gave me a very bitter taste.
I made similar mistake long ago in one of f2p games i used to play, with very bad support, but even them were able to help me and replace wrong item to correct.
Just let you all know about, as personally I dislike games with bad support.
Here ANet disappointed me badly as from GW1 I kept in memory good and helpful support, but seems it's not a case of GW2.
Shame again as here nobody is even close to Blizzard where we can call support just Support, as guys did all and more to help WoW gamer.
Again disappointed as i though GW2 can be considered as A+++ game, but it's not anymore for me.

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

Have you ever seen the amount of adepts manuals in the TP?

All too many clicks.

Shit happens.

And my GF had a bug in WoW where she add enough mounts and still couldn't get the achievement and they didn't fix it, so yay for Blizzard.

Nothing else to say than I agree, their support /management fails for not giving the support coworkers this option. 

Although It could result in flooding of support tickets, I dunno what is worse.

To busy playing GW2 to post much around here... *shrug*

12/20/12 4:51:51 PM#4

Well, it is your mistake...

I haven't seen many games where you can make a mistake like that and get a refund. When it concerns cash shop items, that's possible but a karma reimbursement when you have to click a confirmation whether you're sure you want to make the exchange of 42k karma for the piece in question.

You just made a mistake, no reason to blame that on so-called lousy support, blame it on yourself and get over it.

It's unfortunate they don't have support for something like that actually.

No where in the OP's post did they BLAME Anet, they acknowledged in all honesty it was their fault. People on this forum are so quick to be rude & offensive.

It is too bad they don't have the mechanisms to address something like that. It's always better to go the extra mile for customers, but my understanding is that the GMs simply do not have the tools to provide item exchanges or karma refunds. Maybe they will develop a more robust toolkit for the GMs to address cases like this, but for now we just have to be really careful with our purchases.

I've made mistakes like this in other games and other games GMs, CSRs, or whatever have been able to correct it. Seems like their Customer Support lacks here in GW2. Its a simple honest mistake that one should be correctable. Don't see how it could not be. Yah you can go back and grind Karma for 3 days which isn't too bad. But I can recall a guildmate of mine making a mistake on an Epic Weapon Quest in EQ and if the GMs didn't fix that well heh doubt he would of been playing after that.

Seems odd that they couldn't/wouldn't fix something like this.

Word gets back to the community if the CSRs are willing to go to an extra mile to help customers for an honest mistake. And, I've written follow up reports on CSRs that have been helpful to me and I think the Company internally appreciates it if the GM is willing to go an extra mile for me. I'll go an extra mile for him.

guys I never told it was not my mistake..
but I guess exchange 1 virtual item to another takes less time then to write the answer of my ticket.
we all can make mistakes and good support is supposed to help us out, IMO.
but may be also they don't have tools to fix it up which is shame...

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.

So ArenaNet disappoints you and has bad support because you made a mistake and spent your in-game currency on the wrong in-game item.

Honestly? QQ more. I don't see how any of this could be ArenaNet's fault.

Blizzard gives every item a 2 hour grace period to sell back to the vendor to get a full refund. ANet should add that capability to this game to avoid tickets like this from being created.

I'm just fascinated how people blame support for everything...

Bad support would mean that they don't do their job properly, and seeing that you've got your answer (probably quickly) I don't see how that's "bad support" :D

They don't have the ability to give you your items back because that's something that would require massive logs and what not and since they have kinda unique server structure it's a bit harder to implement that. Same thing with returning a deleted character (which they said will be implemented as soon as they manage).

Also, you didn't get answered by GM - because there's none. That's what makes this game B2P and it still is better than most of the P2P sub games, including support.

While I have to admit that bad customer service experiences suck in any medium, you can be sure that you'll be trolled hard for bringing your gripes to these forums... it's the equivalent of seeking therapy on a kindergarten school playground.

I had a problem with GW1 once.

The support wasnt very interested in keeping me as normal player.

They have simple not been helpful and friendly, instead they've been blunt and short.

well, i havnt touched it ever again.

That is still one of the reasons for me, not to go with GW2.

 

I looted the wrong item in AoC once.

The GM exchanged it to my wanted item, needed less then 5 mins.

 

My char in FallenEarth was vanished one day.

Imagine, its a F2p and i was a free player ... support was super friendly and transparent, i got my char back.

 

I can tell you ..

that why I explained a difference between good and bad support. If you are happy with bad support, good for you. =D
I'll not die because of it, just made my opinion about game provider.
Now I'm 100% sure GW2 is NOT the best ever game and other hyper crap people keep post about.
Best game MUST make customers happy by taking care of them and give them some fun.
So far it's not a case of GW2 at least for me.
I think I did wrong purchase of game once again (my worst still Aion) and could better by MoP of WoW and play like 3 more months or so. again IMO

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.

So, just because they can't replace the item you bought by missclicking and being triggerhappy clicker you're droping the game? 

Yeah, that's deffinetly a deal breaker. lol

Yeah, but it took them quite a while to add that.  I think they got tired of the gm tickets, because they were pretty good about refunding badges if you bought the wrong item.  It was probably eating up a hefty chunk of time.

I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you.

I would have just cursed under my breath in this situation and resorted to doing what I had to, in order to fix it myself, whether that be grinding, or doing what I had to. 

 

You can actually contact support for stuff like this?   People do that?  I wouldn't really consider contacting support unless there was some kind of game error.  If it was a mistake I made, I'd automatically assume that's not support worthy. 

 

Well I'm glad there are games out there that will help a player resolve issues like these.  I had no idea.  I have to wonder what folks do in a single player RPG or game where there is no such thing as GMs.  Maybe that's my issue, as I also play a lot of those, and the idea of contacting support over an in game mistake I made is absolutely foreign to me, mmorpg or not. 

 

To complain about the lack of support fixing your mistake is even more foreign to me.  Sorry I can't identify. 

 

However if I leave my toon AFK in the wrong place in GW2 and get killed, and suffer armor damage, I'll be sure to try and contact support.  Maybe they'll revert my armor damage for me.  Heck I've fallen in some holes in the game too I can't escape out of off, and have had to port out.  Maybe I'll contact customer support on those too (Which could actually be valid). 

 

Or maybe I'll just deal with my mistakes instead of wanting some employee to fix it for me.

I don't consider it bad support.  If support people aren't allowed to do it, it's not their choice.  Everybody has a boss, and nobody wants to get fired.

 

On the other side, I think ArenaNet's decision to not have CS people allowed to do this is mixed.  Personally I would make the rules as:  1 item swap per month per account (avoid abusers), item swaps only offered if reported within 12 hours of the mistaken purchase, and any item that was used is not allowed to be swapped (avoid abusers).
