Please remove G2A from the site
It's a terrible site, no one with a conscience should support them.

why would we remove it if it's one of the biggest competitor in Europe? what is your problem with G2A?

Buying from G2A is in some cases worse than pirating the game, because some, not all, of thge keys sold there are baught with stolen credit card information.

See this for example:

https://twinfinite.net/2016/06/dev-going-buy-g2a-please-pirate-game-instead/

If you google a bit you can find more.

i'm probably going to kick in some evidently and obviously open doors here, but...

what about... Kinguin?, or $any other so called " competitor/s" that operate in this legally grey area, with very little oversigh, but very big profits to be made....

The problem with these sites like G2A is that they have created an ecosystem for hackers, scammers identity thefts and other internet assholes.

Also if you're buying there you're actively promoting a fraudulent economy, the developers of games can be severely affected by these sites.. especially indie developers..

Example:

Asshole gets stolen creditcards dumps on the internet
Asshole buys keys with the stolen creditcards
Asshole sells them to G2A
Game company finds out game keys have been bought by stolen creditcards
Money has to be paid back and keys are already in the wild..

{LINK REMOVED} has been a good supplier with people that buy from the right resellers. If you buy something that's not working return it, the reseller has to deal with it not you. If you’re not happy they will probably refund your money. Spam and scammers are a fact of life. You can read about the reseller as you do with ebay.ca if they look in any way problematic, I would not buy from them. Ultimately it's the buyer’s discretion. I wouldn't like it if it happened to me though it probably wouldn't.

Guy you are si blind... You're going to kill developpers with G2A ! And so games.

G2A is trash, I agree. Immoral as fk and always refusing to resolve problems.

I support this.

never had any problems with g2a thus far... and having bought several things from reputable resellers there...

then again; mileage may vary; and people are prone to cry wolf :3
