Well, some people were bitching because they were supposedly loyal customers and wanted a piece of the cake. There's no reward for loyal customers on Steam, GMG, GameFly, GOG... Yet there are already rewards for loyal customers on GG, and they still whine about. It's just ridiculous.


Shit, if you really wanted something purchased with the loyalty 20% discount, I'm sure that a fellow CAG would help you out.

Eh, not really. As you go up in tiers, your affiliate bonus goes up if you can get someone to click through your links. That's the only scaling bonus.

Granted you get the BC kickbacks but someone making their first purchase gets the same reward as someone spending their thousandth dollar. So it's not really a "loyalty" reward.

No slam on GG though since, as you said, no one else does anything much either in terms of loyalty bonuses. I still think they should scale a BC-purchase bonus to your tier (spend $10 and get 10,500 BCs at Tier 4 for instance) since that would give a solid reward and you need enough cash spent to hit the upper levels that you've been a decent enough customer. But they're not taking my phone calls.

Thanks for the head's up on Warlock. Been playing it a bit, it's fun but could have been a lot better. Already own most of the DLC but I'm considering getting the Powerful Lords with my paltry 700ish blue coins. Wish I had enough for a freebie Serpent because that adds more content.

hah nice one. I found a thread on Tutor that quoted some tweets from GG saying that the keys should be available this week and that they are waiting on Bethesda. Don't know how true that is but it gives a small glimmer of hope

Man you guys are more hopeful than I. The way I read that twitter post it sounds like they "might" have an update tomorrow. It doesn't sound all that confident when they start out with "We hope..."

Not to be overly cynical, but "I hope" to wake up a millionaire tomorrow...

That post being an attempt at a joke may imply that GamersGate is also a joke, but if the post is verifiable fact, it proves that they are.

Update 23 January 2013:

Hi again,

Last information we have is that we were promised serial keys for the Bethesda New Year Collection bundle by the publisher. We are still waiting for these serials and will distribute them as soon as we are able.

We are sorry for the highly unusual amount of time this is taking.

Don't see why Bethesda would have any reason to take so long to give them keys, sounds like they've been trying to get the price down the way they're pushing responsibility on them. Surely if they were willing to pay what was asked they'd have no doubt about getting them on a certain day -.-

Maybe they are working to get bundles "single key" to prevent sales @ cheap prices :lol:

And it would be ludicrous/ridiculous (take your pick) for the existing Bethesda bundle issue where the current state is that people have already redeemed parts of it.

Not to mention that people could've gifted individual games.

I really don't think they are too concerned about people re-selling the keys. At least not GG. Now, Bethesda might be concerned about that so I could possibly see that. I remember they recently had a Elder Scrolls pack on sale in the UK and that apparently redeemed with just one key. Was very surprised about that.

So while it probably would make more sense for GG to just get individual keys, I could see Bethesda insisting to do just one key to cut down on secondary market reselling.

Given the slow rate of discounting for Skyrim (still a 50-60% off title during sales), I wouldn't be surprised if Bethesda wasn't crazy about letting a bajillion copies of it and Dishonored into the secondary market to be resold for pennies on the dollar. Even eating the already granted keys might strike Bethesda/GG as a better option than individual keys for all the remaining packs. Just idle speculation though since we're only talking about a throw away one-liner in this thread.

Those of us that bought Sacred 2 Gold before it got switched over to DRM-free on GamersGate are stuck with the securom version lol. Kind of a crappy thing to do, I'll probably submit a support ticket.

I doubt those keys will be resold for less than 40-60% of MSRP in other places than CAG forums, so it shouldn't considerably hit Beth sales policy.

Yeah, I was looking into it. My library lists "Sacred 2 Gold (Old)" with a product code: DD-S2G. The downloader is now labeled: "Download Sacred 2 Fallen Angel (Old).exe" which further confirms that I'm not being auto-converted to the DRM-FREE version (yet at least). The DRM-FREE version has the product code: DD-S2GE. I'll probably submit a ticket -- lousy timing at the moment with the Beth Pack keys issue still causing rage. Oddly, I don't hear noise over BL2 keys.

I think everyone got their BL2 keys for the packs that were honored. So GG does come through on things and there likely is a legitimate reason the Bethesda keys are delayed.

Same.
I've Twitter'ed GG up asking about it.
We'll see what they same.

Let us know how things go w/ your ticket.
