If you bought a Founder's pack they said you could play Aug 18th. the 3 founders packs are in tiers Slayer(basic) Hero (middle) and top tier Founder.
Then they said in 3 different emails Purchase Founder' pack to play! Even telling me I would play Aug 18th ,play tomorrow, play today. But for $40 more dollars
I had already bought a Founder's pack back in May on the 6th. So the 18th come and no email on how to play even thou i got the countdown email?
Confused i went to the site to find only Founders pack/ founders tier would be playing, I got to the forum to complain and Vola my thread closed followed
by me being Banned from Play dauntless dot com and anything else dauntless. A few emails came in telling me I was disruptive and spamming with my unpopular opinion.
The person who banned me was a Dev Ian Tornay said directly
I understand that you are upset and that you feel taken advantage of. As I explained to you, this is not our intention and we have been very forward about what is offered with each pack -- and we have been very open about refunds.
You were issued a refund. If you did not understand what was posted on the webpage, I apologize. However, we are doing everything to make this right for you, and your behavior on the forum is disruptive. In turn, you will not be able to participate.
If you have a problem or a question with our business practices, you are welcome to bring it to our attention in public. But you are not allowed to bother other players with it in unrelated threads.
But they call them all Founder's packs with different tiers.
First email in May read
We are proud to announce that the Dauntless Founder's Alpha will launch on August 18th.
Slayers who purchase Founder-tier packs
will be able to explore the Shattered Isles in
this first publicly available version of Dauntless.
We will also be lifting the NDA during the
Founder's Alpha, allowing Slayers to stream
and capture content. We believe in the
power of content creators!
THE ISLANDS ARE CALLING
The Founder's Alpha starts on August 18th.
Soon, Slayers from around the world will start their hunt in the Shattered Isles, defending it from the Behemoth onslaught.
You can join the Founder's Alpha when you upgrade to a Founder-Tier Pack.
10 AM PDT, August 18th
6 PM PDT, August 30th
Mindful i bought mine back in may and they only need say Slayer and Hero tier play Sept 1st, While Founder tier play early August 18th. there was no dates when i bought in.
Looking back to the emails they use these term interchangeably and then defend themselves with retorts that i misread it thus for spamming and need to be banned, I looked to see if this was isolated case but no im not alone many other players also thought the same thing and when they tryed to stand up they where also banned and booted IP blocked for life for. So sending me emails to hype me for playing where just not needed. Try stating this in the forums get banned from both the forums and the game for life..... Spend your money there if you want but i would say BUYER BEWARE they are rotten.
Monster Hunter has once again stomped them into the ground as i knew it would.
Founders are Slayers that committed to buying before hand thus a pack, and the highest tier but not the slayer tier, and the name given for all slayers even at the lower tiers slayers and heros?
My retort was they could have called the tiers Hunters Heros and Super Heros! or something else others than founder and slayers and that would have made they whole thing easier to understand. and i get banned!
I dont know about you but this got my head spinning real fast, i got 3 kids i work 50 a week and I dont have time to pour over details of most unreleased games. I rather spend my little spare time on quality gaming and streaming.
On top of that I run the largest Monster Hunter Costuming site on Earth techdollogic.com and was willing to offer them much praise there, but i didnt slam them there after all went wrong cause i am professional on my site and I dont even make money off it, i dont even have ads for F sake.
I wish their PR skills where better and we could have had a civil understanding rather than ban my IP for life cause I missed out on the transparent nature of their business. Since when can you be spamming in your own forum topic. Which Ian locked soon as he seen it so no further discussion could be had and the others that didnt understand could stand up and say what about us? we paid our $40 you sent all of us emails telling us that we would play and now we have to spend 39.99 more if we want to play.... Its just shitty.
I also noticed a influx of bored person, the game not working for roughly 1/4 of the players and many people whom thought the game would be more, I understand it was a alpha and still is,,, but now im just laying in wait for MONSTER HUNTER WORLDS it looks so good, so polished exactly the game dauntless will never be. I would have talked at least 30 people personally into playing, dauntless missed out more than i did. At this time I would not even play it for free, I'm buying a second PS4 so me and my son can play MHW together and I bolstered up the PC's in my house with rx580 to run MHW smoothly when the PC version comes out , so you can tell ill spend money on games. I dont mind spending money on games I just dont like feeling tricked. If you went to the theater for the next hero movie and you already payed 6 months ago, you would not think you would have to wait for it to come to DVD...... thats how i felt.
Option A Im happy they get money i spread good word
Option B I might not be happy but at least i know you understand the concern
Option C I vent you keep a player that is possibly unhappy but mabey they change their mind after a while.
Option D I tell everyone i know All my friends also pull out and get refunds they loss money i lose respect for the company
Option E I put that money into monster hunter worlds, Ive already bought another ps4 and 2 copies of the game i know when Im going to play exactly and im happy and ps and capcom have even more money. Dauntless folds as they cant keep the doors open once MHW releases and all the players go to worlds cause its what we wanted anyhow.
