Much appreciated :)
Not worth linking my steam account and risk ban, maybe I'll create a second account for claiming freebies.
what are you on about?
Trading games can get you banned, higher risk if steam account is linked.
i've traded near every game since choices started and no ban and if they did so what - i don't like most what they offer anyway that is why i am trading them
happy cake day, hope you have your account back
Why exactly would you get banned? HB is an official store.
THANK YOU <3
God dammit I should have made a ga sooner
because I saved up the key
from the reaper bundle 3
and now it's given away for free ;(
It's a me, mario tea
It's 4 am don't judge me.
doesn't matter if you did GA of this game 10 ys ago or 10 minutes ago. CV will be reduced for everyone.
okay, I was wrong.
That's not how it works, is it? At lest it didn't use to work like that but I have to admit I have not been paying much attention lately. It would seem odd if this changed though.
No, it doesn't work like that. Once a game is given away for free, it gets marked as No CV from that day onwards, any giveaways before retain the status they had before. Same applies for Reduced Value. So people having keys from before but who make the GA now won't get any value out of it, while those who made it earlier will get the CV that applied at the time.
from that day onwards
from that day onwards
Ostensibly. Sometimes staff will set the day of freebie/bundle-list addition a day, or even days earlier than the actual promotion date, without any clear indication as to why they've added in the additional buffer period (I've never once gotten a clarification on such matters, when I enquired into them). To put that in mechanical terms, I've had several games go free/bundled because they were available on [eg, Humble] a day [ie, 24 hours or thereabouts] before they were on a steeper sale [eg, on the Steam storefront]. So for the CV-focused, it can be worth setting giveaways with a span of several days, to see if a chasing promotion pops up.
But yeah, as long as you're not dipping into the same general waters as a promotion, your previous CV is locked, barring retroactive listing recognition of a different promotion (or of the promotion you originally sourced from). So it's entirely possible to lose CV after-the-fact, but not if there's no time-associable basis for it.
I think it reduces the value only if the giveaway was made after the game was given for free

Yup, same here :-/
Wasn't this included in humble choice before ?
F1 2019 from March's?
I keep confusing both f1 2018 and f1 2019. Both have similar cover art. So f1 2019 was in march choice.
It was in:
Thanks for the info.
your credit card was denied xd
The same problem...
Неа. Саппорт ответил общими фразами. Написал опять, пусть чинят т.к. в последних 2-х раздачах все у них с этим получалось - проблему решали и я забирал игру.
Here's my key for F1 2018

I hate those multi-accounts, are clearly multia-ccounts on SG too
Thank you very much.
