They took the Bethesda packs from my shelf but no email and no refund showing on my card. Thinking about contacting my card to reverse the charges.

I wonder why there's even an option to download the BL2 client. It's steamworks, isn't it?

I haven't had any of the games show up on my shelf from the get-go. I've always had to click the All Games tab.

Shazam, just now got the refund email. Boooooo! It's gonna be a pain in the ass refunding all these people if they revoke our already activated keys.

For the record: I bought the Bethesda pack and redeemed every single key to my steam account. So far, no email, no refund, and all the games are still on my shelf. I'm very interested to see how this plays out.

Kinda similar, to my knowledge everything was activated.

Anyone know how long typically it takes for an activated key to get reversed?

Just contact GG's support. I'm sure they'll refund you without hassle, but you'll have to wait 3-4 days to get a response.

I'm really curious to see how they're going to handle the refunds for people who've activated some/all of the keys. I don't think they're going to revoke them from Steam, personally. I can see them just refunding everyone and taking the activated keys as a loss.

I bought 2 packs - the first was a giftable one by accident. I then bought a second regular pack because I couldn't get the first one gifted due to the site slowdown and I wanted to try to get some keys before going to bed. From the second pack, all but 2 of the keys have been redeemed by myself or sold to someone else. I've received 1 email with 1 refund, and the giftable pack is now gone from my shelf, but the non-giftable pack with most of the keys redeemed is still there. I really hope they don't revoke the keys though - that will be a pain to refund the keys I sold.

Took them about an hour to send me an email for BL2, but they refunded me for Ghost Recon, and Ghost Recon is still on my shelf lol. It's downloading now, will see if it still works.

Did anyone have their Borderlands 2 season pass removed from their shelf (if they happened to grab it at $7.50)?

I'm wondering this too, but honestly that isn't much of a price mistake considering you can get it for $10 from GMG. Wouldn't be surprised if they didn't do anything about it.

Nobody knows. If it happens then it will be on 'Valve time'.

It's going through a Gamersgate download manager right now,

it popped up after I clicked Download in "All games" tab so it isn't activated through to my Steam.

but it never provided me with a key/serial.



This is really weird considering Borderlands 2 is a Steamworks title, so the only way to play it is having it in Steam.

And yeah, if you didn't get a key better stop downloading, there are not stand-alone versions of the game.

Yeah, I think they'll probably let that one pass.

Yeah, my thought is they probably won't tinker with that. Or something like Viking which was only a $2ish price differential and probably 'sold' no where near the amount of keys as Bethesda/2K stuff.

I got a refund email as well, but the games still exist on my shelf for my Bethesda Pack. I activated all but Fallout 3 which was out of stock...I believe everyone who downloaded games should back up their respective steamapps directory, regardless of what happens you should be able to play them in offline mode, if they do actually reverse the keys. I will be highly upset if they do, because after purchase I got the Skyrim DLC packs separately, and the dishonored DLC. Hoping they don't, their facebook page is a world of venomous rage atm. I understand it was an error, and after this Borderlands 2 cock up they likely lost some large amounts of money....but its crazy to reverse what was purchased and has been played for several days. After all, it's Christmas!

The Season Pass mistake was actually fixed relatively quickly. Within 45 minute or so. So they probably didn't sell an obscene amount like they undoubtedly did with the 4-pack fiasco.

I don't think people would be complaining as much if it was just the Borderlands 2 fiasco being reversed, but the fact that they acted like they were honoring the Bethesda glitch by telling us we'd all get keys in January is what stings a little.

Oh, who am I kidding? People would complain no matter what.

And if they do it it's gonna be a huge clusterfuck.

I agree with this, although I only think people have at least some validity in their complaints with the Bethesda pack.

I'm mostly concerned about key revoking. Ugh what a nightmare.
