Video game industry giant Blizzard Entertainment is profiting by taking advantage of gamers. Blizzard encourages gamers to spend hundreds (or thousands) of dollars gambling on loot boxes in hopes of winning items that allow them to progress, or compete against other players, in its games. If you have spent money on loot boxes in either Hearthstone or Diablo Immortal, and if you additionally paid the retail price for Overwatch before Blizzard removed live server support, you may be entitled to get your money back, along with additional damages depending on your state of residence.

Blizzard Entertainment deceives and encourages gamers to spend hundreds of dollars to gamble for loot box items in its most popular games, including Hearthstone and Diablo Immortal. Unregulated online gambling is illegal in many states. Additionally, Blizzard has intentionally designed its games to require gamers to gamble on loot boxes if they want to enjoy all the features of the game or compete against other players. Furthermore, Blizzard charged gamers full retail price for the original Overwatch but has since terminated live server support effectively preventing customers who paid for the game from getting to play the game they purchased.

 

 

We are pursuing private arbitration claims against Blizzard Entertainment on behalf of gamers who have spent money on loot boxes in Hearthstone and Diablo Immortal, as well as gamers who paid the retail price for the original Overwatch and can no longer play the game they bought. Successful claims could be entitled to refunds of the money spent on these products, along with additional damages depending on your state of residence.
