After getting a very low average score from both critics and players,
Bethesda is once again getting yet another backlash due to its alleged deceptive refund practices. Fallout 76
players are currently voicing out and are currently discussing their experience in trying to get a refund for Bethesda's faulty product. In relation to this, Migliaccio & Rathod which is a law firm based in Washington, D.C. states that they are investigating Bethesda's alleged refusal to issue refunds for Fallout 76. The Reddit post of the said law firm was eventually removed and was tagged as Self Promotion Spam, however, we were able to acquire a screenshot of the post through YouTuber and gaming enthusiast Yong Yea's discussion of the issue (see screenshot below).
