Originally posted by =Jumbo_Grill=:It's just too strange for this massive region lock to come crashing down so suddenly. Several articles around the web say that this wasn't a policy enforced by publishers, claiming that Valve was the one to retroactively lock these games in order to crack down on trading.
The Valve I used to know wouldn't harm a majority of players like this in order to contain mere traders, is what I'm saying.
