Unfortunately since we have updated our policies, Humble codes are no longer valid. Sorry for the inconvenience!

updated our policies -> ban all unredeemed keys? o_o
I feel this is going to be a new trend. :o
are they trying controversy marketing for better exposure ? o_o
thats fuckin nice of them
sorry, but this better be a joke
sadly, it isn't.
yup, tried to give it to a streamer like half a year ago, didnt work :/
Withholds payments from more than a year ago because traders are breaking HB rules by not redeeming the keys themselves after purchase back then?
Ehh, that key was just for one month subscription, right? Still scummy but nothing of value was lost really ... :D
Unless you are a content creator, monstercat license is the weirdest thing ever, paying money for something that is already free.
Also, there are great alternatives nowadays, like NoCopyrightSounds.
a year. Scroll to NinosAksel's post.
A year. (So about 60$) And basically it was a gold subscription, which also allows for high quality downloads and stuff c:
Ohh I see, nvm then.
That service has no place in a 1$ tier ... whoever put it there made a huge mistake imo.
Well, i thought it was Tier 3 because I wasn't active in this scene as the bundle got released before I saw the steam gifts discussion.
Monstercat?? What's the actual name of the game and what bundle was it in?
I believe it is a record label with a Twitch streaming service. There was some sort of a limited subscription in a Humble software bundle a good while back that many more people have been trying to trade rather than actually use. It's a shady move but given the attitude of Humble towards 'traders' I don't expect much help for users complaining that the key the have been trying to sell for months is now worthless...
So it's from 1st tier in this bundle
Oh well, I had forgotten about it. I didn't really had an use for it even tho I usually like their music, it was a pretty useless thing for people that doesn't stream, aka most people that bought that bundle.
That's probably why they decided to 'update their policies' - bundling an expensive, but extremely niche service to thousands of customers for less than a dollar effectively makes that service worth around a dollar indefinitely (and strongly deters any full price sales), as the supply from bundle purchasers would have taken years to run out.
Granted, they should have thought about that beforehand before reneging on their contract.
Yup, seems like a major oversight. This could have been easily avoided by just stipulating an expiration date on the keys like how humble tends to do many times.
Monstercat is a pretty shit record label - https://www.discogs.com/label/258955-Monstercat
Sorry if I'm missing something here, but how's the link supposed to prove they're a shit record label? In what way? Just bad music or what?
Sorry didn't mean to be so vague - mostly wanted to highlight a comment on the page there: 'Monstercat used to be SO good in 2012-2014. They released so much quality electro house (Rogue - Adventure Time), drum n bass (Feint - Snake Eyes), dubstep (Au5 - Blossom), glitch hop (Haywyre - Everchanging) and trap (Aero Chord - Boundless). They were still pretty good in 2015, but it completely went down the drain in 2016 when almost every artist on the label started releasing poppy future bass, dance-pop and overly loud trap/dubstep/electro house. There's still some good music on there, but it's overshadowed by the types of EDM I mentioned earlier. Same goes for a lot of other labels.'
Also: 'The label signs artists on a non-exclusive single-track basis, allowing artists to freely move between other labels and brands. Monstercat follows a release schedule, where new music is released three times a week, in addition to an hour-long podcast that is live streamed every Tuesday on their Twitch, Beam and YouTube accounts.'
It's basically a meat grinder for electronic music, you might find a good track or two on a compilation but they release so many genres and a lot of cheese. It's a very commercial sounding and operating 'indie' label. And not being run by an artist means it is about money/business more than art/love I would imagine. I've never really liked much they released, all a bit too soft for my liking.
This debacle with humble bundle t1 license revokes is disgusting - they knew what they were getting in for. I would never pay a label directly for subscription service, only through third party like Bandcamp - but even then I don't want to subscribe.. I pick and choose what I like. It is rare (if ever) that I will like EVERY release on a label. So the whole subscription thing seems pretty worthless to me anyway. .
I'm a DJ and producer by the way so my opinions may differ from the regular enduser.
