1. Log in to the page 'Games & Subscriptions

2. Lick on the option 'Manage' next to the account you would like to cancel

3. Click 'Cancel Subscription.' If you don't see the option, it means that you don't have an active subscription. It may have been canceled.

You can continue to play your game until the current game time expires. After that time, your account status will change to Inactive.

Contacting the Support Team

The best way to contact Blizzard for your refund or any other form of support is on the help desk. Customer care agents are friendly and helpful.

Email is another option to seek support if you don't need to speak with a representative. Keep your email brief but include details of all the issues you are experiencing.

Blizzard also offers support on Twitter. You will receive a response in a few hours. It is a great alternative if you don't mind waiting. They may call you or direct you to the relevant help on the help desk.
