some people just want to watch the world burn


LOL.

Well at this point I have to think that GG is trolling all of us. That or they don't GAF about money and just want some attention driven away from Steam.

I think that witch's hex I paid for after the IGN discount debacle was the best $9 I ever spent at a carnival sideshow.

So, I finally managed to view one of my keys, but it still says the other 3 are "only giftable". Is this normal for 4 packs? It forces you to gift the other copies, and you can't see the keys?

Yeah when I got it from Amazon, that is how it works.

>>if it is the same, you put in the key, then it puts game in your steam library and 3 more giftable versions in your inventory.

I get that this is CHEAPASS Gamer, and that there are a million other people willing to take each CAG's place in line for these deals, but I can't help but feel like I'm watching some grotesque act being performed on an innocent child, each person taking their turn(s) as they please.

Analogy set aside, it's okay, to me, if a few (< 20 or so) people get in on the deal, but seeing their servers overwhelmed by the hordes of people taking advantage of the mistakes is just too much for me. I have nothing against anyone here, and this is nothing personal, but it's disgusting to me to see this, even the two (now) major times that it's happened.

If this keeps happening, GamersGate could go out of business, or another possibility is that publishers simply won't have their games listed on GamersGate's site since this HEAVILY devalues their games every time it happens. I'm not sure how much they're losing from these mistakes, but I would imagine it measures fairly large seeing that their servers take a HEAVY beating every time it happens.

It seriously depresses me to see this, but like I said, this is CAG, so I guess it's to be expected. Also, like I said before, it's not like another person wouldn't take each and every CAG's place in line. Meh...

Alternately, they could hire one of the higher order primates to run their site rather than the spider monkey they have doing it now.

I just don't get it. If these are "mistakes", how in the bloody hell do they happen?

Where in their system does a price change cause these kinds of anomalies?

Either the work of very clever marketing, a very disgruntled employee, or some very bad site coding.

Well, with the 4-pack it seems obvious that each time they tried to lower the discount, they were accidentally doubling it ($22 to $11 to $5.50). How that happened, I have no clue.

I can only guess that one of the site owners is entering these numbers because anyone else would have been fired by now.

Oh yeah? Holy crap someone sold a key for $15, I think they only expected to sell them one copy haha.

Severose - don't worry we'll save you a copy

I think someone at GG needs to relearn basic math.

Lol I pre-ordered it and the season pass. No regrets either.

I don't know. I do know how it worked from Amazon, and I suspect it to be the same here. But if you are worried I'd wait for someone who got it from GG to tell ya for sure.

I do feel bad knowing that these price glitches have become so common and widely known that is has to be seriously hurting their business as a whole.

Got a Borderlands 2 - 4pack for the equivalent of 2.8$. Amazing crazy deal at less than 1$ per game.

Well, site is down and I cant send payment. But I did get the confirm for the BL2 4 pack.

If anyone got in on the season pass I will trade one copy of BL2 for the season pass.

Someone here PM'd me with a report that their pack may have been revoked. But I remember during the Beth Pack fiasco that people were seeing all sorts of Library glitches on GG so I suspect it might just be that happening again so I wouldn't panic yet.

I think they're getting revoked.

I bought a pack, they were in my game library, I could even see the one serial. (I even used it already, so my order went through 100%)

Right before they took the site completely down, I got into my library again, and all my games were there EXCEPT BL2.

I believe they are revoking all orders that did go through. Not positive, but it sure looked that way to me.
