Blizzard really messed up on this one as their Metacritic score is the lowest among all other games published by them. Metacritic score hits a record-breaking low as fans of the franchise really want Blizzard to know that how much they hated the remake.
Fans started to flood the Metacritic score with zeros. The game’s technical state is not as good as it is filled with bugs. Along with some missing features that were promised during reveal trailers, fans are understandably angry.
After claims of false advertisement by Blizzard has them receiving a lot of criticism from the gaming press. Many big-name YouTubers and critics are basing the game for their lazy remake of a classic title.
Blizzard even started to ban players for helping others with the refund process. This really made consumers angry. Many said it was illegal to ban players for asking a refund as in many EU countries there are strict consumer protection laws.
All these unfortunate steps from Blizzard has left consumers with a bad taste. You can see the reflection of gamers’ anger towards the company as Blizzard’s revenue went down last year.
Warcraft III: Reforged’s Metacritic score is an example of players revolting against Blizzard as they made some questionable decisions with their beloved titles. And gamers wanted to show their frustration towards Blizzard.
