This looks good

bobofatt (Support) (10 months ago)

Oh, very nice. I guess this clarifies what "personal use only" means?

:D

Dunther

Agreed! I'm glad we finally got that out of the way! lol

Why would anone create a new system just to abolish it?

What the hell is this

+1 seems crazy/pointless. they must have gotten hate mail. more than they did for the crossplatform drm free thing or they would have ignored it

This way?

Dunno if I should do that...

PapaSmok

Hmm kinda interesting how it doesn't show the person... Or any fact that it was used...

Ekaros

(10 months ago)

It's taken... Not me though

Groopy

(10 months ago)

I took it but i already have bought the worms bundle. What should i do ?

midnightshooter

(10 months ago)

Try sharing it again? ;D

Ekaros

(10 months ago)

There is no Gift box. I know what to do. I ll redeem yours to my account and gift my copy here. Thanks for tah game :P

Flaw with this system #n: you accept the gift link blindly and if you already own it that's tough luck because you can't pass it on to someone who didn't own it - with Steam keys it would remain unredeemed until someone who doesn't own it redeemed it.

Lewder

Yup. If i knew what it was i wouldnt redeem it. So in behalf of Ekaros good will and my politeness and honor i "regift" this: https://www.humblebundle.com/gift?key=cmH2CYcSev6bDN67

Have fun whoever gets it.

Cool. When the WB bundle launches, I can finally gift Scribblenauts to a friend who's been dying to play it. Thanks for the heads-up!

I'm also tempted to wag my finger at Humble bundle for teasing us with the WB Bundle for the second time today (even though the first one was Scribblenauts' fault). Might as well just tell us what the 2nd week's BTA bonuses are :/

andie (10 months ago*)

I'm actually quite happy with this "solution". The way I see it this will prevent people from earning money off of keys by trading and then retrading their way up, but for those of us that want to gift extra keys to friends there's no problem. I'm cool with that! :)

how does it prevent that?

TheGannet

(10 months ago)

Once the gift is activated it's used and can't be retraded. :)

andie

(10 months ago)

now i got it... pretty nice solution :)

dafuq is this? i thought free games :(

xfumblesx (10 months ago)

If this means no more wasting copies of games I already own I'm cool with this.

I guess it's to stop key resellers on auction sites.

Ekaros (10 months ago)

I have to admit this system needs little bit more retuning...

Sisyphus17 (10 months ago)

Sounds reasonable enough.

gift4u (10 months ago)

Nice work!!!

kirbman101 (10 months ago)

This seems like they'll be moving away from multi-game keys and still allowing us to give games to our friends, so I'm happy with this.

I agree. It annoyed me when they had those giant bulk keys. Had to give all the games to a friend instead of just the one he wanted. Now I can just give each game to people that want them.

Way to go!

Tychox (10 months ago)

that's insidious!

nonamE2192 (10 months ago)

They got me back

ExDec (10 months ago)

This system actually could work. Atleast people will be able to give others games they don't need.

zombiemakermx (10 months ago)

I like this but, it's too funny how they implement the new key system to do the things "more easy", and now you have to do 4 steps to gift a key.

Well, I prefer 4 steps to gift over 4 steps to activate games.

This is perfect.

Peroxide (10 months ago*)

My Team17 bundle is showing the gift link for the games I already had as well. I'm not sure about any bundles before that since I've revealed the keys on all of them.

This is a great feature though! This along with the auto redemption means we should never see single keys again and we'll always be able to activate the games we want and giveaway the ones we don't.

When you gift the Steam key, do you lose access to the DRM-free version?

bobofatt (Support)

(10 months ago)

I'm pretty sure the Team 17 Weekly and WB Bundle are both Steam key only.

Peroxide

(10 months ago)

Ah, gift option not added to older bundles.

kurokitsune91 (10 months ago)

awesome! That makes the WB bundle now an insta-buy. Only hesitated because I already have Scribblenauts.

I'm the opposite, I want Scribblenauts, but already have AC.

Add me on Steam. ;)

Peroxide

(10 months ago)

Hey if you'd be willing to trade something in return I'd be more than happy to. ;P but this isn't a trading forum.

kurokitsune91

(10 months ago)

I never said anything of the sort, I simply said to add me!

I wanted to chit chat about other things we may have in opposite...obviously,

Good update, now points will skyrocket again.

BernardoOne (10 months ago)

I now laugh at everyone that said that gifting keys was agains TOS and that it wasnt "personal use"

Awesome of humble bundle, I already have most games on this bundle( the only one I do not have is FEAR 2). I would skip it because of the new policies, but as they fixed it im getting it! Also, this will solve the "keep drm free copy, giveaway steam key" problem.
