Yesterday I wrote a quick piece on Virtual Steroids being down. The downtime actually lasted longer than expected, and customers began to wonder whether the bot will ever come up at all. New customers found themselves 30 Euros short, and without a bot. The Virtual Steroids Facebook page was not updated either; apparently it was created by fans. The VS Twitter account was taken down just before the outage occurred, an unfortunate coincidence that just compounded the problem.
A thread was put up in a major botting forum, the OP claiming to have disputed the funds for the Immortal key he had purchased. This was a very hasty decision, considering the site had only been down for about 20 hours at the time. Outages of this kind are very common; even moreso for newer sites that are still dealing with growing pains. I should know, because I have dealt with it personally.
Dozens more followed suit. I can only speculate as to how many paypal disputes were opened up against Virtual Steroids, but my guess is that it must be close to 100. I make several referrals to VS every day (between 10 and 20). No referrals have been made since the site was brought back online. According to several posters in the VS forums, the company currently cannot accept Paypal payments. What does this mean?
Thanks to the idiocy and hasty herd-minded decision to dispute VS on bot purchase transactions, VS is being investigated by Paypal and cannot do business until things are cleared up. It may be weeks or even months until things are in working order again. I'm not sure how VS will react to this, my hopes are that they can get back in business soon.
