MultiVersus Glitch Forces Players To Automatically Buy Skins; WB Refuses To Refund

Games have gone to court over this issue in the past.

Story Highlights

  • A new MultiVersus glitch is forcing players to buy skins on their own, as many have reported.
  • The tragic bug has caused many users to lose their money without being able to do anything.
  • Customer support is only passing on this bug to devs and has not refunded the players.

MultiVersus has been on a shaky ground ever since its official release. But a newly discovered bug is arguably the most destructive we’ve seen yet. The game is now forcing players to buy skins on their own, as reported by many players over various Reddit threads. Certain keys on the keyboard allegedly make the Rift menu spasm out of control, which leads to an automatic purchase of skins and a massive loss of prestige points.

Several proofs of the bug exist, but it has not been officially addressed so far. Unfortunately, customer support only seems to be passing the bug report to devs and has not yet issued any refunds to players. The statement from customer support alleges that the bug will be fixed in one of the future updates. If you recall, games like Fortnite have been taken to court over similar issues, so this glitch is most likely illegal.

MultiVersus Could Have Been A Fun Brawler Without Corporate Greed

The fighting platformer could have stood a chance in the industry if there had been no greed. Swaths of microtransactions and lousy gameplay choices have led the fun brawler toward destruction from the get-go. Therefore, Warner Bros. needs to rectify a lot of glitches and gameplay changes to have any hopes of succeeding, or it will just fall into obscurity.
