I remember that ubisoft incident, they did those poor people a favor.

Anyway, I was referring to steam bans from valve, not revoked keys from developers of the game. And as SinisterSlay said, those were all ubisoft games.

So again, either show some screenshots of steam accounts that got banned because of these grey market cd-keys as you like to call them or stop misinforming people.

Nothing at all wrong with Stickies, they just have to be relevant and updated. That one is old and archaic

I've talked to some people that have had their keys revoked from steam, but never banned.
Since they show as retail keys, steam can't tell what region you bought from or how much you paid.

Can you screenshot some profile or proof that people have been banned after they bought keys from one of those sites?
If not, then you're just misinforming people.

That's just Far Cry 4, it's happened with other games too, but one should be enough to get the point across that there is a serious risk if the developer wants to fight a legal battle


this is just ubisoft with uplay
i think it's nice

There have been others, I figured one game was enough to demonstrate but it's happened several times

I knew way too many people who bought G2A that I warned and couple weeks later they are mad that their game got taken away,

G2A is basically stolen games or cd keys they ripped off at the super market/electronics store.
