Players Accidentally Activate Diablo 4 Premium Pass So Blizzard is Fixing it

Multiple players who don’t plan on playing the latest Diablo 4 Season have complained the game’s menu is intentionally designed to accidentally activate the Premium Battle Pass. It seems that Blizzard once again had money on their mind when crafting the Premium Battle Pass menu and made it so obtrusive that scrolling through the game accidentally activates the pass.

Players report that when visiting the Season menu tab in the game, there’s a button called Activate Premium.  This redeems the Premium Battle Pass. Usually, this isn’t a major issue as players would have to go purchase in-game currency to buy the pass but the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions come with a pass included.

These game versions don’t restrict you to this season. You can redeem the included pass next season if you wanted to avoid all the horrible gameplay adjustments Blizzard has made which has ultimately slaughtered the experience. So because of the included pass, the button will instantly redeem the included incentive without any prompt whatsoever.

The issue now is that when you go to this tab, even if you want to just check your seasonal progress, the default position of the cursor is always on the Activate Premium button. So players are now accidentally redeeming their passes when they don’t intend to.

One Twitter user explains the situation below and accuses Blizzard of intentionally designing the menu this way. He calls the design malicious.

Blizzard has now acknowledged the issue. The studio says it will release a fix that will move the default cursor away from the Activate Premium button and onto the Season Journey tab instead.

If you have activated the season in Diablo 4 by mistake, you’re pretty much screwed. Blizzard is not refunding users for the accident. Multiple gamers on Twitter claim that their refund ticket was denied. So until the fix it out there, don’t accidentally click on the button.
