Originally posted by Spawn of Totoro:The only way to do this is to contact Support and have them remove the game on your account.Please note, you will not get any thing back by doing this. When it is gone, it is gone.
Originally posted by «Gғм» Kid Of The Century:To be more specific BurtonJ said that they can't (or at least aren't allowed to) activate another copy of a third party game on an account which already have or had in the past the game.The "when it's gone is gone" part is more relevant than one might think: once you have a non-Valve game removed from your account you can't re-activate another copy on it.
Originally posted by Spawn of Totoro:I've never heard that. Please post a link.People have had games removed by Steam for other issues, and were ableo to buy a retail copy and add it to their account.My understanding is that, even if you add a retail copy, you will still get the original key (so as to prevent bypassing VAC bans).
Originally posted by BurtonJ:Terminating a subscription doesn't result in what you are expecting.If you need a new CD key for a previously purchased third party game, you will need to create a new Steam account.
