Since in this forum you can find just ♥♥♥♥♥♥s and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s I'll rewrite the fix here too:


If you bought the game from STEAM:
Exit from STEAM.
Reopen STEAM, wait for loading process.
Now go to library, or store page press play, i think (or is automatic).
By the way, now you can download the game. No need cdkey, because the key is kinda of tieded to your email.
When the download it's finished just press play. You will see a pop up screen, insert email and password and start to play.

No need to rage. Best way was to just go to the official forum (http://forums.playwarz.com/forum.php) and read, or ask people.

Any way, in Steam forum this is the third post with this question. You can find the answer there too

I understand the confusion, I think is a bug or something. The better solution will be from moderator to make a sticky in the Forum with the explanation since it seems to work differently compare to other game in STEAM

best way was not to just go to the official forum and read. best way was for the damn thing to just work.

mhmm strange..... it has to be the email and the password you gave when you purcheased the game. (not sure how it work with STEAM purchease, this solution worked for others people)

You can try to go to this link: https://account.playwarz.com/buy/buy.html

at the end of the page ther is the link to click to check the status of your order.
They will resend you the mail with the information of your purchease but inthis case I don't know if this option work with Steam purchease.

If this solution didn't work and you retryed the first one without succes the best way is to go in the offical forum and make a post asking about your problem. Try to post in technical support or for a faster aswer from players in forum ask for help in general discussion.

hehehehehe I know.
This is the kind of stuff they can resolve with a simple sticky post in forum (both STEAM and official) or with an actual fix!!!!!! Sometimes it's like they really make an effort to make people rage at them.

If you bought the game through Steam, the key should be located in the Steam library.

You can do one of the following things:

1. Right click on the game name in the library and you should see "View CD Key" right below "Play Game".

2. On the library detail page that shows the install/play button, news, etc. There's a "Links" section. "CD Key" is usually right under "Store Page" near the middle bottom part of the section.

If it's not in either place, try quitting and restarting Steam. If it's still not there, there's some kind of error going on that will most likely require contacting Steam Support to fix.

If you'd like to test it out to see how it should work, I saw that you have Fallout 3 in your library. It's a game that has a key and you can use the instructions I gave using that game to verify the process.

.


My friend i bought the game for did not have that option to view cd key on steam, it told him he could get a key from the steam store. which is odd considering i just bought the game for him there.
