Sonic Runners Red Rings to be Refunded Over Bad Descriptions

Sonic Runners Red Rings to be Refunded Over Bad Descriptions

by September 26, 2015

In a move that will at least cost Sega some money lost from refunding valuable red rings, the company is admitting it messed up when they mislabeled two new items that came to Sonic Runners’s premium roulette this week.

In a statement released to the app this week, the company says they oversold the Dark Chaos and RC Pirate Spaceship, and will refund red rings used on the roulette from the morning of September 22nd to the early morning of September 25th as a result:

It has come to our attention that the RC Pirate Spaceship’s rarity was incorrectly indicated as “R” within an in-game notification. The RC Pirate Spaceship is an “SR” Buddy.

Furthermore, the Dark Chaos’ ability description was incorrectly written as “Boosts score from enemies by 500%. The correct description is as follows:

  • Boosts score from enemies by 250%. (250% Same Type.)

Both Buddies were added to the Premium Roulette on September 22.

As compensation for this error, we will reimburse all Red Star Rings used on the Premium Roulette between 9/22 9AM and 9/25 3:29AM (UTC.) Affected players will also be sent 10 Red Star Rings for each time the Dark Chaos was obtained during the period above. Distribution of these items may take some time. Thank you for your understanding.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
