Hard to imagine what will do all those people who giveawayed these games on SG, and those who won, because their accounts can be suspended for not activating won gifts. I hope the administration will solve this problem.

Probably best is to switch all feedback to not received on these GAs (maybe en masse by mods - might be simpler than dealing with tickets separately). It's really the GA creators' fault for not reading the description on the Alienware giveaway.

Edit: about half are already deleted, there's like a dozen finished giveaways left to sort out so it's not that bad at least.

justice has been served imho..

imagine poor buyers who would buy the game from "shops" and turns out the key was from this batch.. poor buyer, again problem for seller to refund there

all the point-freeloaders are now having problems for giving away free keys which they should have kept for themselves or given to other people in friendlist...especially if it was unclear if the keys would get revoked or it was due date to activate them..

What noone says is apart from the dumb people complaining as a steam review that their gets got revoked, that apparently they also closed the servers? i would say that's more of a problem to this game.

I see no announcement of a server shutdown on the store page. Do you have a source besides the angry rant reviews?

No, not even even on discussion board (from what i saw) there were 2 reviews mentioning it.

After this shit storm I don't think many developers will be compelled to work with Alienware Arena to organize a free exclusive trial of their game for AWA members in the future.
Edit: To leave no misunderstanding it was said clearly from the get go that the keys would be revoked on 21 June. So I don't understand why you are obviously upset about this.

They could have just done a free weekend and get no flak whatsoever. This was better for us as this way we got free trading cards but people simply can't be bothered to read. They should have expected this outcome.

I don't exactly get what your problem is. It was clearly and prominently featured on the giveaway page that the keys will be revoked. If you didn't like it why did you take a key from the giveaway?

do you really beleive in every single word that Is written on the internet?
good for you.

Man... What's up with sarcastic bullshit you're pulling against dohlicious, despite "not complaining" and "not being upset" and writing a negative review because a dev said a thing, and kept their word? They could have done it better, but this notoutrage and notcomplaining is ridiculous. All for the dev telling the truth. Imagine them lying, and you actually being upset... luckily the game was only idled, nothing of value has been lost.

Hum... to me, you never came across as being funny, not even sarcastic. Just really, really salty. Because a game that was given away with limited access was removed from your library. In my eyes, it just seems like you did like others did... i.e. you didn't read the goddamn giveaway description. It was so clear that you could only play the game for a limited time... I really don't understand how some people didn't get it from the get go. It was so obvious. But yeah... people don't read usually.

Now, why be salty? I mean... you got what you wanted from the game: cards. You seem to like idling stuff you get for free so what's the matter? Next time you try to get free stuff, maybe... just maybe read (and try to understand) the giveaway's description?

I might be wrong... but in my opinion, you didn't delete your comments because you dislike "drama". You probably didn't want those comments to be seen as fodder for maybe some blacklisting. Personally... I see deleting comments as a bit of a cowardly act. But yea, that's just my two cents.
