WTF is this running out of keys **** on Steam?

Stop guys, you're really hurting on my feelings. You don't like the largest online video game community in the world. You guys must be real cool hipsters. What sort of boxed frame glasses do you wear? I want to be cool like you. But please, stop talking about me. The OP direly needs his attention. If he doesn't get the key to this game ASAP there might be hunger problems in Africa.

Or worse.


You realize coming to a gaming board, where the topic is gaming, and trying to ridicule someone for posting about having paid for a game they did not receive with a "first-world problems" insult - when basically every single topic on this board is "first-world" anyway, doesn't exactly make you look like the brightest tool in the shed, right?

If you run out of keys, why continue to sell it?


Which do you think would piss people off more: a) a big sale on a great game for a great price results in having to wait a little bit for more keys to be issued (your problem) or b) a big sale on a great game for a great price results in the game being "SOLD OUT" possibly until the sale is over?

I know you may be a bit upset right now, but you'd have way more people complaining about Valve not allowing them to buy it. I also think it would make sense though to just say "temporarily sold out" and just put the sale on hold until (and continued later when) more keys are acquired, but maybe it's not their decision to make. Maybe Bethesda says "Run the sale for this day only"? I don't know.

In any case, if by "Summer sale" you mean the one that ended about two weeks ago, you waited two weeks to play this game, and you can probably wait a day or two more. Valve isn't going to leave you hanging and permanently unable to play your game. Be patient.

If by "Summer sale" you mean the QuakeCon Sale, well, then they're probably just about done with whatever backlog they built up and I'm sure you won't have to wait much longer. Again, just be patient. Worst case scenario is that you'll get your money back but no game.

Ok, it's working now. Glad to see it does get fixed fairly quickly. I was worried that it could take weeks to play certain games seeing how I purchased FO3 a few weeks ago. I'd be pretty pissed if I bought Splinter Cell at launch and then had to wait a month to play it.
