    The data provided by G2A was interesting. In one example, in all the keys sold for a particular game, there were over 100 sold by one single person in 1 day, being 45% of the total and 85% of the keys sold for that game were by only 3 people. If G2A actually cared, they could simply add a selling limit and flag people selling lots in a short timespan.

    There is a difference between banning an account and banning a key. If someone does a chargeback on a DLC/expansion you can just remove access to that content (at least the first time that happens).

    You can, but only if you assume there's a system built for it. It may be a wholly manual operation and if the volumes are what I think they are, it's unfeasible.

    So in order to make themselves look better, G2A expands out to shilling and admits to it.

    This is mostly a result of the outdated but impossible to get rid of credit card clusterfuck, it's a fraud magnet.

    Thank you America for giving us that fucking monstrosity and thank the EU for now fucking cementing them into the same place in our economy. Must have been some real fancy dinners and revolving door jobs the EU kleptocrats got out of it. Who could have guessed the credit card companies would raise their fees after the EU made it illegal to pass them on to customers? No one right? Now just like Americans I'm forced to use a credit card or cut my own wrist for not doing so, thank you EU.
