Currently, clicking "Claim code" leads either to error or to 404 page.

For those who don't know, claim here - https://dashboard.totalwar.com/home/troy-amazons

Yeah, most likely the site crashed under the pressure. It's now going through ''scheduled maintenance''....
Not uncommon for free stuff when the title is something people want.

Should soon be fixed and up and running I hope.

Indeed, after a few white page errors, reloading that page and re-clicking "claim code" finally showed the code. Thanks.
And clicking "Epic Games" on the redeem here line will automatically copy the code to epic games for easy redeem.

Didn't see that was clickable, ended up googling to reach https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/redeem

SEGA's page (and emails) aren't the clearest

got code to claim but epic says

Double check the game itself mate, the page redeems the code then goes back to the redeem code page, so it looks like it hasn't done anything and when you click it again it throws that error. Did it to me, I went into the game and the factions were there ready to play.

Not sure why they set up the page to work that way...

sega is pimping their total war site with this promotion I reckon

From what CA has said there are mainly 3 reasons:

  • main one is that CA's plan is to try and have their website as a hub where it unlocks your games in every platform. FOr example if you buy a game on steam it would unlock that game on EGS. This way you could buy DLC whenever there is a deal going on. In a way they are trying to reduce the barrier of entry to their games while giving the costumers the choice to play wherever they want, independently where they buy their content.
  • By having the traffic going through the site I imagine CA can get some data on what activities people do. THis data can be done so you can make the product with limited but focused budget still be interesting to costumers
  • By using a website made by them they are also directly responsible to the costumer service and have a direct line to their costumers. This means CA is less depend on steam/EGS/reddit/etc. promoting their games.

unlocking games across platform is nice, but unlikely. steam wants its share
all the other stuff is valid but creating an account and linking it is just a useless extra step
they could just allow login with Epic or Steam and create profiles.

with every publisher adding their launcher\hub\website the less likely users would look into it
could be just me,,

Steam doesn't want their share for outside content redemption AFAIK.

Steam want their share if, inside a Steam game (launched via Steam), you buy anything.

Also via EGS promotion they can't nicely harvest email addresses like they can with this. SEGA loves emailing the shit out of you (see Make War Not Love promotion with free games).

you are misunderstanding CA's plan. The idea is not to allow you to buy stuff inside the game. The idea is that if you bought the game outside steam paltform CA will gift you the game for steam.

Currently steam doesn't have any rule that prohibits that behavior. There are several games that yo ucan buy at the dev store and you get a DRM-free version + steam key.
This is basically the same with the difference that you don't get just 2 versions of the game but all the versions.

This is different that what EA did a while ago where you could have micro transactions inside steam games that used websites to circumvent steam's share.

Steam (like all platforms) gets the money per sale. so while providing keys for Devs, they must have a limit so they can drive the store sales and keep profiting.
in game purchase (MTX) through steam is still a thing. but its not as exploited as mobile platforms
Epic claims to have a smaller cut and is doing the whole fight apple thing, yet they keep going for exclusive deals on the platfrom
so im sure they are looking to keep the profits as well.

im yet to see cross platform sale outside some limited marketing campaigns.

no steam doesn't have a limit on key generation. you can read the rules here https://partner.steamgames.com/doc/features/keys

In very simple terms it basically means that as long as steam users get the same treatment as non steam users, valve will stay out of your way. Also if Valve suspect you are abusing the key generation they may deny further requests without explanation.

When steamspy worked i remember that there were games where more than 50% of sales were steam keys so clearly valve doesn't really push for steam to be the dominant "store".
Valve seems to believe that as long as their client is better and offers more feature they will always be the major store

It isn't that unlikely. What CA basicaly does is use a free generated key from steam and activate that on your account. They are testing the same for the EGS.
If i remember correctly steam rules for keys only mention that steam users can't have a worse deal than non steam costumers + rules for preventing abuse.
Theoretically what CA is doing is inside the rules steam currently has.
The biggest problem is, as always, EGS. They want users for themselves and they don't like sharing. To my knowledge EGS doesn't even have the rules for their key use in a way for us costumers to see.

Also even if it was unlikely it is written in their wood elf DLC blog that this is their plan.

CA text "A long planned for goal and major feature for Access we’re working on is the ability for you to link your different store accounts through it, so TW games and DLC you buy in one store will transfer to the others. This means that, for example, you can buy a game in one place, and then take advantage of a DLC sale in another. Plus, play multiplayer with people on different platforms. We’re working on it with our retail partners at the moment and we’ll let you know when we’ve more to share. "
From here https://www.totalwar.com/blog/dev-blog-july-2020/

The ballpark is on EGS and steam's court now. Probably more on EGS as steam usually plays ball with anything that favors costumers.

I mean, if they use your Total War account, they can just let you access DLC based on what you're allowed to have at login time, without using keys at all. Just a server side ownership check of what you paid for on any platform.

I don't understand what you mean. CA's free DLC (grombindal, gotrek, amazons, scary big spider mount) were all activated Steam/EGS keys.

Also wouldn't that server side ownership check require the game to always be online? Because currently total war games can be played offline as long as denuvo doesn't interfere.

Because SEGA/CA wants you to use their site, they want you to get invested in their ecosystem, and drive traffic their way. It's basically a marketing tool.
They've given away small DLCs on there in the past, for the same reason (those are still available, by the way, so if you have Warhammer 2, you can still grab them, but unlike the free DLC for Troy, they're "exclusive" to their platform, and you need to register there to claim them, you can't buy them elsewhere).
