Stardock Issues Weird Apology for Demigod

demigod2

So, Demigod. It’s that PC game that launched early over Easter weekend, accidentally flooding servers when they weren’t ready for it. Then, pirated copies showed up, ruining the experience for those that actually paid for the game, because that’s about the only thing pirates are good for. Then, the servers are still having issues into May.

So, what’s a good apology for those users affected by these problems from publisher Stardock? How about a 50% off coupon towards the purchase of Demigod! Oh yeah, that’s a freakin’ steal!

… but wait a minute. Wouldn’t the people already playing it have a copy? What good does a coupon for the same game they already own do for them exactly? Who came up with this marketing plan?
