How do I generate a Gift Link now?

On the "Choose your games" page, you click a game, scroll down and click "gift to friend" instead of "get game". Then you see the usual region lock notification about countries that receive a different game version than you do or do not receive the game, and you can pick between generating a gift link or sending the game via email.
"Get game" will instantly reveal the key and NOT simply add the game to your Downloads page for this bundle.

Note: The guess / leak for Void Bastards is NOT included.

๐Ÿ’ก Humble original

To be revealed later.

Humble Choice gives "Arrog" (doesn't say DRM free?) and "Desert Child - DRM-free", so I think those might consist of the Humble Originals to go with this month's Choice.

If you are referring to Humble Trove reveals, I think that already happened for the month given that the Humble Trove's countdown clock is currently 21 days. That implies to me that Humble Trove additions happen the second week of each month (on a Tuesday?). The Recently Added Games list @ trove is: Arrog, Balconing Simulator 2020, Dear Esther, and Race The Sun: Challenge Edition.

Actually you can grab them anytime before they're launched (which is next Friday), but it auto-charges a week early. You could even pause/cancel now and still if grab them anytime in the next week if you change your mind.

According the FAQ, you don't have to choose now, you can choose in two years and they'll provide your keys at that time.

I wouldn't wait that long though, as there are sometimes issues when you try to redeem old games.
A recent example is Ethereal, a Humble Original from the September 2018 Monthly. Keys were available a few months after the end of that Monthly (like that's often the case with the Humble Original games). The ones who claimed the game quickly after the release got their key without any problem. For the ones who waited too much, boom, no more key available. And now the game is no longer in the list of the purchased games, so I assume we will never get that game.

But maybe the Monthly and the Choice keys attribution works in a different way and your keys are 100% guaranteed forever. Too early to tell.

I think the issue presented with Humble Originals are generally because they were not promised to the buyers. We are given a DRM free copy and I don't think the devs are under obligation to give keys and even if they do, to provide for the entirety of the volume of buyers for that particular month.

For the other games, it should be fine to claim them at any undefined period unless Humble decides to start setting time limits

I definitely wouldn't risk it. Humble has removed older unredeemed games from peoples libraries before (remember someone on SG had that happen to them with one of the delisted Spiderman games).

That's a really bad example as its a very specific case of a delisted game and as such one they couldn't provide a replacement for even if they'd wanted to. Though I do agree it's best to claim your games/keys as soon as possible.

The point is they didn't save keys for people who had bought them, so if anything happens to the company who made a game or if they and Humble break ties your humble keys will not be guaranteed.

I have a recurring subscription from the old Humble Monthly. Does that mean I have extra benefits for the newly evolved Humble Choice with complete subscription? Also, with the latest it says you can choose your games - up to 10. But there are 10 games. So I basically just get them all?

Sorry, realized I forgot to answer your question:
Yes. you'll get all 10 games, but sometimes there may be more than 10, and in that case, you'll have to choose 10.

To be sure you're still on the Classic plan, you can check this link. https://www.humblebundle.com/subscription/home

It should say "YOU'RE ON THE CLASSIC PLAN", like in the image below.

They reveal the choice in the first week of the month and--if you haven't yet taken an action on it by the end of the month--autocharge at the end of said month.

Did you claim any of the December choice games (or the month) already? If so, I would almost guarantee that you already were charged for it. The autocharge date is, as I understand it, the default "we'll charge you if you don't cancel/pause and haven't revealed any of the codes earlier" date.
Did you have any unused monthly credits saved up from the old program? If so, it used one of them.

Yeah, I just remembered I paid for it earlier, normally I wait for it to auto-charge but did an exception this one time. So I guess the 31 Jan is for the next choice and I can pay for it even after games are revealed, which is nice.

First timer here and I'm not sure I understand region lock correctly. I got the bundle from Italy, Europe, so Blasphemous should be ROW, but when I try to create a gift link for it I get a bunch of Countries where the gift cannot be activated. Am I doing it wrong?

The list doesn't reflect the actual region lock of the key. You can read the notification more like "For these countries we give region locked keys" rather than "Your key is region locked and will not activate in these countries".
Customers who get ROW keys will always see this kind of notification, as long as there are other countries that receive locked keys.

๐Ÿ’ธ Subscription + Bonuses

There's evidently been some recent quiet changes to the non-Classic subscription costs for non-USD regions.

Basically, instead of regional pricing based on payment method which was more closely tied to exchange rate, regional pricing is now a fixed amount for each region set by Humble. In the case of GBP, it is 6% higher than the previous regional pricing. (Reddit thread where I asked about it)

Apparently they have posted a support article about the change here: https://support.humblebundle.com/hc/en-us/articles/360039435794 and linked to it in the new bit of text they have added to the "How much do I pay under a Classic plan?" paragraph of their default Humble Choice - Classic Plan FAQ article:
Additionally, it is worth noting, the Classic plan retains the USD pricing. It does not update to the region that you are currently located in. If you switch to any other Humble Choice plan you will be subject to pay under the currency of the region you currently reside in. More information on regional pricing here.

Hope this isn't a stupid question, but if I don't choose any games by the time the next choice monthly goes live, does that mean I'm locked out of choosing afterward? Since choice carrying over seems a good thing but I'm super indecisive (among other things) right now.. Since I paid for Dec I don't think I'd be locked out of anything so I don't wanna jump the gun until I got some better internet to look into the games more thoroughly XD

Just a heads up. I paused my subscription earlier in the month. Just went to check and I had a warning that I would be losing my classic status soon. I went to manage my subscription and it said I was an Active subscriber. Bit confusing. Anyway, I hit the pause button again and that seems to have sorted things.

You might want to check your subscription status before the reveals today.

Weird - So you paused previously for December Humble Choice and did your warning appear on the "My Subscription" page, clicking the "Manage Your Subscription" button, or elsewhere?

I didn't pause for this recent December Humble Choice to be able to check for myself, but it does appear that I can pause even before January's Humble Choice is revealed later today as it says my "Next Billing Date" is near the end of January. Makes me curious if it is possible to pause for next month immediately after paying for the current month?

I understand that. Let me rephrase my question to be a specific scenario (which is not exactly related to BauerBoy24's concern):

If I were to buy today's January Humble Choice after it goes live, can I pause my subscription to prevent being autocharged for February? (I am aware that pausing means I suspend my subscriber benefits)

The fact that I paid for December Humble Choice and my "Next Billing Date" is currently near the end of January suggests to me that the answer to my question might be "Yes".

I think so too, if I remember correctly pausing basically just skips an autocharge date.

Weirder still is that my subscription page says I paused the December bundle, but in fact I activated every game, so I don't know what's up with that.

Now as far as pausing January, I looked at the FAQ on it here, and if I'm reading it right, then we can pause January any time before the last Friday in January, giving us plenty of time to decide.

For fucks sake, I hope they get their shit together

Being a bit short on money ATM buying the bundle was the last thing I wanted to do.. Randomly decided to check on Humbles page what it shows and had the same warning about billing error. For monthly they at least had the big pause icon on main page that showed if its paused or not...

Wouldnt have checked at the last minute I would have lost the classic plan.. I wonder now if this shit was done on purpose.. I suppose they can just say - a mistake was made while changing to Choice, but this would have thinned out a bunch of people who skipped and would have lost the Classic plan.

Would like to give them the benefit of the doubt but seems like there has been a lot of these "glitches" in the past. Hopefully the people that don't notice this message don't lose their status. For the rest of us, I suggest we keep a close eye on our subscription page from now on.

I paused the past month around December 20. And also when checking HB today I noticed that in the morning, but left it untouched. If it was a glitch, it's their mistake and not mine, so if there was any problem they should fix it. But now I found something odd:

This was early today: Image 1

This is now: Image 2

Somehow, I was automatically paused for this month (January)? By now I'm kind of lost. I haven't done anything and lost the subscriber status. My plan "will automatically renew on Friday, January 31, 2020"; but somehow I still have the classic plan (Month-to-Month Classic Plan).

Anyway, there's nothing interesting for me this month and will pause it anyway. But now I don't know when or how should I do that, since I should be an active subscriber by now, yet somehow it's the opposite status.

So confusing... (>_<)

Comment has been collapsed.

Well when Humble switched Monthly to Choice, there are some people who didn't pause and cancelled all together based on principles, such as:

  • "I'm not going to support a company who increases prices almost 50% for new subscribers who want as many games as they got before in Humble Monthly vs Choice."

  • "I think the quality of monthly bundles were going downhill anyways. Might as well just buy other bundles or games on sale individually."

  • "Humble is not the same since they were bought by IGN"

I'm paraphrasing here as I don't hold all these views myself, but I understand where some people are coming from.

So even though compared to Humble Monthly people who continued on with Choice Classic (whether paused or paying) get the new benefits of being guaranteed 10 games and seeing them all before they buy, evidently principles like the ones above override those benefits for some people. So that's who would end their subscription.

Who are these people? Humble are giving existing subscribers a perk because they were loyal - most companies would throw existing customers to the dogs and chase new customers with sweetener deals.
