There's still plenty of reasons to complain about Epic's lack of features. This is just a step in the right direction instead of paying off developers NOT to put their games on other marketplaces besides theirs.

Except it does?
Or am i completely misunderstanding what self-service means in this context?
Last time I refunded a game (in November) I had to file a ticket and wait for their slow ass support to get to it. If there is a self-service refund then I am ignorant to it.

You did it wrong, unless by filling a ticket, you mean using the refund process, and by slow ass you mean less than 1 hour.

I'm pretty sure they did say they were going to add new features/improvements in 2019, so they started sooner than expected.
Not entirely sure why people expected a store to be as good as it was ever going to be right at launch, but it's nice they implemented fan suggested features quickly. Imagine they'll keep at it as they keep pushing the storefront

Stop the exclusivity moneyhatting and you're actually going in the right direction of what competition should be Epic.

I wonder if people will keep accusing Epic of moneyhatting whenever a developer opts to release their title on their store instead of Steam...

Then you're doing it wrong.
You need to go to https://help.steampowered.com/ click on a recent purchase and simply push the buttons for "i want to request a refund", then you get a confirmation within 2 to 3 hours.

It's not an accusation if it's a fact.

Didn't expect that so soon. I'm a little surprised, almost a bit impressed, to be honest. Good effort.
Yeah.. but does each game have its own unmoderated Forum?
I really do like Steam, but I think that's not a major aspect of Steam, especially with so many forums (and reddit) out there.

definitely not an hour



(I requested refund immediately after purchase because the store had advertised an inaccurate price)

Well that is enough for me to consider purchasing on the Epic Games Store. I still won’t purchase any exclusives on the platform. I doubt it will have any affect on whether they will continue to do pay for exclusives or not but I just can’t support that practice on the PC platform.
