Is this lineup a trick ๐ŸŽญ or a treat ๐Ÿญ?

View Results
[Recurring subscription] Oooof, this is a pretty bad month but Iโ€™ll still keep my subscription going otherwise the regrets will haunt ๐Ÿ‘ป me even in the afterlife โ˜ ๏ธ.
[New subscription] This time IGN managed to put the right ingredients in the cauldron โšฑ๏ธ of this bundle. I am bewitched! ๐Ÿฆ‰
[Maybe subscribe] Not all the featured games are interesting for me, but overall I still wouldnโ€™t call this a bad ๐Ÿฆ‡ lineup. I need my crystal ball ๐Ÿ”ฎ to help me decide.
[Pause] I donโ€™t see anything Spooktacular โšก among these titles.
[Cancelling / will not buy] None of the last months appealed to me ๐Ÿ–ค, therefore I think itโ€™s time to pull the plug completely โšฐ๏ธ.

I just love how developers throw a grenade in their own feet choosing region lock keys.
They simple make the bundle hard to sell, because everyone outside ROW knows they will end up with a unusable key.

Untradable, not unusable

I meant unusable but not in the classical meaning (maybe there's a better word for this... xD).
The struggle to find something to do with those keys if you won't use them is real. Like very real, for every key, even with good, rare or unbundled games. The South America is incredible large and populous and it has many countries. Yet, I can't find people to trade region locked keys. You won't believe I bought Tropico 6 for 1 TF2 key after one year the bundle has been released. If you don't use the key yourself, region locked keys are unusable, not by itself, but no one else wants it.

Bought 3 months for $6 each. It's still worth for Amnesia Rebirth alone.
Last months were awful so it must only get better. I hope they are saving good games for pre-Chtistmas months.

It might be considered a form of begging tho... As I see it, it's not that different than someone asking for a game. But anyway, I wouldn't count on that if I were you. I mean, most SG users who check the Choice threads are probably already on a plan and that referral thingy only works for never-before-subbed accounts.

Eh, at worst, you might have gotten a few days of suspension, but I think that if anything, a mod would have simply warned you since, as Shannon pointed out, it's kinda a gray area. ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

I find it hilarious that they would send this coupon. No, I would not like to buy the next bundles in advance and give you room to make them even worse than this one if that's possible.

Can I take profit of the coupon if I resume now but directly pause the month without paying this month? (I'd like to take profit of the coupon, BUT OTHER MONTHS, I don't like what they offer this month...)

Sorry if this has been previously asked, and thank you in advance.

Doesn't work like that. In order to use the coupon you need to buy the bundle. When you buy the bundle, you'll be taken to the payment screen right away and there's no way to pause. And the coupon is timed so it'll expire before the next bundle gets released.

And one more Email from Humble Bundle.

Reminder: Get 12 games for only $6!

I will be the only one who did not receive that email, at the beginning of the month I paused, they only wanted to give me a discount of 3 dollars with which I continue with the pause, in short, after so many years and not an offer email.

1 month ago

Well, not that it helps, but you're not the only one ^^ Didn't receive the one mentioned above, and this month not even a discount when pausing (usually only receive a pause discount if I have actually skipped the previous month, and even then it is not guaranteed).

Probably varies with a series of factors... one of them being that if a person is already a long-time customer it doesn't pay off for them to offer any discounts, because the money already comes in (unless, of course, the regular customer consistently stops being regular).

Supposed customer retention tactics and profit management, it's part of every business model ยฏ\(ใƒ„)/ยฏ

(there's also the remote possibility that it's all just random and chaos over there, just for giggles when they come over to read this thread)

No discount email for me either :(

Also they are kind of scamming people with their ads - if I log into Humble, there is a banner on the starting page saying you can get 12 games per month for 12$ but when I actually try to join they suddenly announce that it will cost 18$ per month.

Nope.

you would also need to buy the next month to keep it up, right? so you would pay for Games just in hope humble would finaly make a good bundle again to make it worth to have spent the money on the previous ones, right?

They'll refund it if you ask nicely and haven't revealed any keys.
You should pause as soon as a new lineup is revealed if you don't want to forget. You can always unpause again if you change your mind.

If you took the $6 a month coupon, after the first month can you pause a month or do you lose your $6 if you pause?

It was worth it to pause till now, I finally got one of those coupons too. 5.4โ‚ฌ for Katana Zero + 11 other games is a pretty sweet deal.

I paused and I got the coupon too. Can you confirm is only for one month payment? I pay three months at time.. I'd like to keep it :(

The coupon is indeed for month-to-month payment plans only, and you can't get back to 3 months if you switch.

Got the coupon, okay for 3 months for โ‚ฌ5,40 I'll bite.

Of course it freaked out and threw a billing error, because why wouldn't it. At least selecting a game and requesting the key popped up the payment window and I could manually pay it. (DO NOT remove all your payment options or you'll lose Classic.)

Well, got the same error. Upon unpausing due to the coupon I was facing the billing error as well.
With having only one payment option possible I'll have to put some trust in the customer support.

Yea I only had one payment option as well. No amount of account checking/paypal login helped. But when I went to unlock a game it asked me to pay manually (with paypal login to authorize payment) and then the payment went through.

The billing error in the subscription section went away when I paid manually, as well.

sadly this didn't work out for me, instead I was getting the message that the billing method got canceled or something like that.

How to redeem that? I unpaused to redeem, but... I don't see the option to get the deal? Do I have to buy new subscription? How can I buy, if I have next 3 months paid already?

If you've already paid, you cannot use it.

Okay, thanks.

So that's a scam, then. Giving me something I cannot use, just to mock me. And then, what if someone would think it just worked and would maybe somehow cancel already paid subscription to buy new one or something. Especially that I know coupons that works after the checkout, so people would maybe think the same. Someone would have change billing cycle to 3 months or something, thinking it would work and actually lost what he already had bought.
That's the most stupid thing Humble is doing. And generally I would like to pay in advance e.g. 5 years and I can't, because Humble don't allow it. Not making any sense. Any other place let me do it.
