I was wrong.

I googled the regional pricing circumvention thing, and some users who have done it excessively have been warned about it by Valve. The lesson is basically this: buy a few things that way and you're okay. Don't make a habit of it though. If Valve notices a pattern they will give you a warning.

Makes perfect sense, if someone is doing it intentionally there would be a lot of evidence of such on their account, which gives them the grounds to call you out. But if it's only a couple of games, how would the average user actually know they're buying a Ukraine or Russian gift on a few occasions?

They're not going to be heavy handed about enforcing this. You're safe to buy a few games, so I suggest getting deep discounts on the big ones and calling it a day. And make sure you buy a lot of other games in between your RU/Ukraine/Whatever ones.

Just got this.

This game was activated with a product code that is valid only in a specific geographic region. Since you are not currently in that region, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is not available to play.

Very upset. Wonder if this means my Call of Duty Black Ops II copy is bad too...

I'm out like, 80 bucks now. I was so addicted to X-Com. Such a great game. Overblew my video game budget to get it, and I can't play anymore. This seriously sucks.

Where / who did you buy XCOM from and was it a key or steam gift?

It was a gift. I bought it from some guy from Steam Trades, but I assume the same is happening to anyone who got a gifted copy of X-Com from a different region.

:( Is all I can say at this point.

Now I am afraid to claim my copy since it is a different region and I am in the US. It is still sitting in my inventory.

They'll take it away from you, don't do it.

At least if it's in your inventory you can trade it. It's totally valueless once you redeem it.

From what I've read it looks like they snuck in a Region Lock with the past update to the game. But I thought gifted games didn't have restrictions when redeeming them? Not sure what I am going to do now if this is true. If anyone else has a (RU) copy are you still able to play?

You people should check for tags in Steam gifts titles you are about to buy. Just insist before paying to see whether the game is tagged or not. Always avoid anytthing tagged (RU) or (CIS) because they would be 75% locked (some are not locked just tagged but it is still a risk). Also avoid (DE). (AU) and (JP) (they are censored most of the time but not locked)

XCOM Enemy Unknown (RU) PrePurchase and XCOM Enemy Unknown (RU) are region locked. Period

You should always get untagged games or games with (RoW) or (NA) tag (these are region free)

Steam keys are totally different thing. COD series cheap Steam keys are mostly (RU) locked for activation (need Russian VPN) and they are risky, while the same COD series in Russian Steam store as gifts are not tagged at all and are region free
Borderlands 2 (RU) Steam keys were region free first although they have (RU) tag but now new keys are locked, while Steam Store gifts were (RU) tagged and locked from the start

As a CAG, I like cheap games, but also would NEVER risk my account with any tagged game (locked or not)

Ironically, the only (RU) game I have in my account (that was redeemed via a key) is Witcher 2, and the key came directly from the publisher.

Ironically, I forgot that I traded for the same Witcher 2 (RU) Steam key last year (im my first days of trading) lol

Glad to know that it seems The Witcher 2 Steam keys are only (RU) because the game was only available as a Direct Download DRM Free

You can try to contact Steam support and say that the gift has no indication that it can't be played in certain regions. Steam should put a note in red (just like they did with Guest Passes) on those locked RU gifts that they would not work outside Russia/CIS region

It's weird that I was able to play for days before they locked it down...

I never should've been unable to unpack the game without a warning if I wasn't going to be able to play it. Steam has seriously failed me, now I'm out a bunch of money.

If you already added the game to your library, contact Steam support and ask them to deactivate the RU version and activate the right one for your region. Be polite, patient, convincing and show them it is their fault

I'm terrible at that when it comes to shitty support. :roll:

Good advice though. I really hope you can get things worked out, Broly. That really, really sucks...

This is definitely your only chance. By the sounds of things, they slapped the region lock on it AFTER release and by the time many of you had either traded/bought the game and activated.

If you guys just ignored the tags and didn't bother seeing if their was a region lock, I could see them doing nothing. But for those of you that already played and/or owned the games before it was updated with the lock, I can see them helping you after some back and forth.

Even though it sucks that most of you paid for the gifts, as others have said, I would suggest not mentioning that to support since it's technically against the rules. Good luck.

So as posted in the 2k forums, the Russian copies work now?

I restarted Steam and XCOM runs fine now.

I checked and I still have the (RU) version. Not quite sure what happened on their end but I am sure glad I can play now!

I checked my Licenses + Subscriptions and I have an Item, "Steam" just added and the acquisition method is 'Complimentary'

I wonder if that has anything to do with it?
