Will the Paradox 2012 Ultimate Pack be back again?


"Paradox Holiday 2012 Pack - $14.99 ($9.99 after coupon)

We are definitely going to run out of keys for the Paradox pack today (1/31) pretty quickly. I just spoke with my Paradox contact (he's in Iceland, I guess it is later in the day there ), they are going to try and get us keys by Friday at the latest and have agreed to keep the promotion up until the end of the day on Saturday. The Editor's Choice coupon will be extended FOR THIS PRODUCT ONLY until the end of the day on Saturday, assuming we get the keys.

So, hopefully we'll get more keys between now and the end of the day on Friday."

On the front page mate :)

I picked up the CK Pack (obvious choice), and now trying to decide between:

the Warchest (for King Arthur) and the Majesty Bundle (for WotA).

Any advice?

Oh, sorry. Didn't read the front page before I posted. Thanks anyway

Keys still don't show up for me as well. 4 hours and counting now since purchase. And not only the Paradox games that don't show, but I can't see any key on every single game I have ever purchased on Amazon...

Could have helped a few people with my extra EC coupons as well, but I'm holding out until the keys show up before buying more... and whoops looks like the Pack is gone before it was fixed. Sorry to those who are waiting for me to get you the bundle. Hopefully the key situation is fixed and the Bundle comes back soon :/


Tony posted this a couple of pages back in case you didn't catch it:

Hey guys,

For those of you having problems viewing keys, it is just a function of the system getting hammered a bit (lay off the sauce system!), it should resolve itself within an hour or so. Also, and I'll put this in the OP. We are definitely going to run out of keys for the Paradox pack today (1/31) pretty quickly. I just spoke with my Paradox contact (he's in Iceland, I guess it is later in the day there :) ), they are going to try and get us keys by Friday at the latest and have agreed to keep the promotion up until the end of the day on Saturday.

So, hopefully we'll get more keys between now and the end of the day on Friday.

Cheers,
Tony


Guess it didn't resolve itself within an hour since his post, but I'm betting it'll stabilize eventually now that they've run out of keys.

And no hurry to spend the EC coupons if you're sure you're gonna use them on the big bundle.

King Arthur Collection is an interesting variation on the Total War formula. Turn based overland strategic map and large scale unit combat. It's pretty good. KA2 is rubbish.

WotA is Warlock? That's like Fantasy Civ 5 light, less on the empire building/management, more on the combat (and it has magic!). Defenders of Ardania is a formula Tower Defense game. It's functional but unremarkable, and inferior to say Defender's Quest or Defense Grid.

They're both solid, if unspectacular games. Either is a worthy choice.

If it helps, Fallen Champions is a rubbish standalone expansion cash grab by Neocore, kind of like King Arthur II which is even worse.

Yes, I know, gotta catch them all (cf. Fable III DLCs).

Probably because it wasn't a "franchise" pack, but only a collection. Since FC is a standalone dlc they didn't add it (which doesn't make sense, but whatever)

Everything Neocore has made could be described that way.

It's a standalone though, you won't miss it when playing KA, it's also not of the same caliber.

It looks like the 2012 bundle is being held up due to lack of keys for one item of DLC for Game of Dwarfs. :lol:

Thanks for the feedback; it's helpful. Sticking to a budget is hard when people like Tony are around taunting us with incredible prices. :lol:

Maybe the system is getting hammered since today is the last day to use nearly all the EC coupons. Folks might be coming off the fence to pick up the 2k packs, ms pack, paradox stuff...

Ah yeah, I read that earlier, that's why I'm giving it 4 hours before posting anything, but it still doesn't show :(

Well, one thing to take from this, it looks like the current system couldn't handle the stress from a huge bundle (the test that will be supposedly done by the Strat First bundle, but with the amount of keys dispensed by the Paradox pack, it should be similar for all intents and purposes), so yeah 1C Bundle couldn't look farther away than ever :P

Hmm, if the bundle comes back, hopefully it lasts until the end of Saturday, because I may not be around Friday night / Saturday morning...

Should've taken fewer MS indie bundles..

Stranger, my friend bought Paradox 2012 Pack after me. They login and can see the "View product key". After they click View product key about 10+ games, they disappeared. Another friend login and they can see the "View product key".

Went to sleep last night refreshing this thread, woke up this morning and the 2012 Pack is sold out :(

I hope I'm not at work when more keys come in.

> bought Paradox 2012 bundle with so-called last coupon
> try purchase, still got coupon. ok
> use it on Seas bundle.
> try on War chest , got -$5.00 applied

Add me to the "Missed the 2012 Pack" club. Now I have to decide if I want to try to get some of the smaller bundles (not sure how many coupons I have left) or wait to see if the 2012 pack gets restocked. I think I'll just hold off and hope for the best with the 2012 pack.

@Tony - If the 2012 pack keys were NOT to come in for the new Saturday deadline, any chance we could see the EC coupons extended for these Paradox bundles only?

damn. I suck. Would really like the Paradox pack, if even just for War of the Roses. Hope that it comes back in stock today or tomorrow at some point

Guys, calm down. I spent all yesterday looking forward to the 2012 pack and missed it in the middle of the night too. Read the first post if you haven't already. Tony's making sure we'll be able to use the EC coupon on the bundle. I think we can all wait a couple days. Chill. Go play the many discounted games you likely bought already.
