Seems like valve will be opening the door for people to use these proxies under the guise of a family member abroad.

Do you think that will be an issue

explain cause I dont really see how this could be a problem


pretty sure the user is only allowed 10 people to share to and only 1 game at a time can be played by anyone


and why are russians family sharing with you?

Are you trying to say that you can't live somewhere and have family in Russia? What are you getting at exactly? You can authorize a Russian computer to play your games or vice versa but only one of you can play ANY of the others games at a time.

He's saying that the tactic people used to use to get around region-locking (which is purchase a Russian key, use a proxy to log in from an IP address in Russia, then log back in) is now suddenly more plausible. Previously, if you logged into an American IP, then a Russian IP to redeem a Russia-only game 10 minutes later, it's a safe bet you're not in Russia and just using a proxy, and Valve can use that to punish you, if they discover it.
can u even count 30 in 1 second? no, u can't. so u can't tell difference between 30fps and 60fps. stupid. -Shinobier-

Can a friend and I share a library and both play at the same time?

No, a shared library may only be accessed by one user at a time.


Otherwords, it's worthless as only one person can be logged on at a time.

So this doesn't apply?:

Can region-restricted content be shared across regions?
No, any region restrictions will remain in place when lending or borrowing content.
