What is "Cloud Activation"?

The Cloud activation method is a fast activation method, where you will receive an activation link from us via email.
You simply need to follow the instructions on screen after clicking on the link - the game will then be automatically activated on your Steam account.

Please note that we will not send you a digital activation code and that you will be required to enter your Steam account information in this process.
We will not save your personal data nor forward your personal data to a third party for advertising purposes. We strongly recommend that you active the Steam Guard Service to protect your account.
If you have concerns about this activation method, please consider checking our webshop - we offer most games as both cloud activation and as regular digital activation codes.


How does the Cloud Activation work?

The link you will receive will guide you through the activation method easily - first, you will be prompted to log into the Steam account that you wish to activate the game on.
After entering the information, you will be asked to enter your Steam Guard code sent to you via email by Steam (or the Steam app, depending on your personal settings).
Follow the further instructions and confirm the activation of the code.
The game will be activated on your account and you will be able to download the game in your Steam library afterwards.

I don't think they're using a VPN - I think that's the whole point of you giving them your login details. They must be getting region locked keys from a cheaper region but then have people who are actually in that region to login to your Steam account and activate it for you. So Valve won't be able to detect the use of a VPN because there isn't one being used, but it's still going to look pretty dodgy if they see you've hopped to the other side of the world, bought a game, then gone back to the UK to download and play it all in the space of 5 minutes.

Oh, and then there's the fact that you've just given your login details to a complete stranger, who may or not be saving them on a company database or even writing them down for personal use. It's the dodgiest way of buying Steam games I've ever heard of (and I've heard of a few!). It's pretty hard, if not impossible, to steal someone's Steam account - you can always regain access by proving you own it, which is easy to do, and it's not like anyone can steal games from your account while they have access to it - but do you really want the hassle of going through that?

The fact that they're calling it 'Cloud Activation' to make it sound like some kind of cool feature is just laughable. If anyone wants to give me their Steam login details I'll 'cloud activate' a few games for you. Why not give me your online banking details while you're at it and I'll 'cloud transfer' some money for you.

Yeah, no thanks. If I'm buying a key, I want to see the actual key - even if it's region locked. Then it's up to me what to do with it.
This is a DISGRACEFUL "deal".

You're putting so much at risk giving out your steam log in IE your information, your library, the lives of your children, your grandchildren and your grandchildrens children, brexit negotiations, your sexual health, the value of bitcoin, the price of fish and the chances of england winning the world cup.

You are selfish. And all for a few quid? You're a DISGRACE

Lol no.

Don't do it. If they won't do a proper Steam link like Humble Bundle or Indie Gala then I wouldn't touch them with a bargepole....

If you want to lose your account and save £2.50, go ahead...
Not keen on this cloud activation malarkey. What's the best deal elsewhere?

Yeah It would worry me on two things.
Giving details to a stranger and region buying.
Think steam are pretty strict when it comes to this.
It's no different than using a VPN yourself and buying regional priced games.

Do not risk your Steam account for a saving of a couple of quid. Want the game? Buy it from someone that doesn’t want your log in details. Not worth the saving at all.
Stay away from this as the keys will be dodgy. No legit seller would activate using this method and you may end up getting your steam account hacked or banned.
Not a snowball's chance in hell I would ever use that cloud activation stuff. Basically like throwing your steam account in the bin. Utterly freezing for that alone.

Buy a key, play the game for a hundred hours and get your money back from selling the in game items.
Lol, the mod's deals these days...
excellent price , this is going to go EXTRA HOT !!!
Cloud activation? not a chance. Get a proper activation code for an extra few quids and peace of mind
Now just need a nice cheap price for the Xbox One verson now (£20ish is cheap though)
This does seem a very strange way to activate the game. Personally I would just pay the extra and get it from CDKeys or Steam directly.

Also be aware the game is pretty CPU/GPU heavy, surprisingly so considering it's relatively average graphics. Saying that though the game is awesome fun. Especially rewarding when you get a solo chicken dinner.
No chance.
Have you seen how bad this is on XBox, its insane
This is such a questionable way to get the game, it's not even remotely safe - cold from me for the fact that you have to expose your account to potentially dodgy people AND break the steam EULA.

I think the issues arises from all the mapping of the players , which is fairly typical of busy areas on MMO games , things tend to slow down quite a lot..

I especially like how on the website, they recommend enabling Steam Guard then in the next paragraph say you'll have to provide them with a Steam Guard code.

A friend of mine was gifted the game from this site and they are in fact chinese keys (shows up as chinese under licenses/activations in his account). So yeah, the keys are region locked and do require to be activated from China, explaining the reason they need your login credentials and "cloud activation" process.

If they're not using VPN, it's probably a bot of some sort set up on a chinese computer because the activation is instant after you provide your login details, there's no wait time for a person to manually login to your account or anything. My guess is it's easier to just use their own VPN to activate the keys though instead of a bot, but I don't know for sure.

I definitely recommend against buying from them, but if you do purchase it make sure you change your password and reset all devices under steamguard/mobile authentication.

Of course. Staff members have always been able to do whatever they want, what's better is that this will guaranteed end up on the "Highlights" panel (again, selected by staff). Probably a paid-for-deal from GD. These days this site is just about driving up profits via click through links


There is ZERO legit reason for GD to activate the game like they do. Please note that buying PSN/XBL stuff and Steam will be very different so you can't really compare.

As someone else said, they will be using region locked keys and a VPN to activate on your behalf. if they don't have local keys available. People HAVE been banned for this (Not like Xbox who don't G.A.F), hell, even I know someone who had a "Russian" steam account locked for doing this manually himself from buying region locked Russian keys from G2A.


As a side note, they are also not an allowed retailer on other deal sites specifically around game deals, such as "isthereanydeal.com" and /r/gamedeals which vet all their key suppliers (In fact there is a blanket ban on a bunch of sub reddits). They have also been caught doing shady things around how they purchase the keys & in-game currencies for reselling too as far back as 2 years ago.

I wouldn't personally use them (and I buy from some ropey G2A sellers!!), and I can't believe a staff member is recommending this, yet they banned sites like Nuuvem - maybe Nuuvem wasn't giving them money?

VPN Activation for buying Games? Or can you not use a VPN while on Steam? Can you use it to change your region to get some games early
Don't share your steam account details with anyone or you'll be sorry when it's gone. Pay a few quid more and buy from CDKEYS where they give you an actual steam code.
Wow Amazing deal so I save a couple a quid but I have to give a website that I never heard of my Steam account details? Great

/S
What's the big deal about giving away your Steam details? Lots of people have sold their souls for less...! 👹
Oops. Not only did I heat without realising 'cloud activation', I also confused Gamesdeal with Gamesplanet. D'oh.
The usual reason for these types of activation methods from shady sellers are because they are selling stolen codes,
they cannot guarantee the codes will work and haven't already been redeemed by someone else so getting access to your steam account allows them to try as many keys as they need without you knowing how shady their being.
Some sellers do this so they can use stolen card details on your account to get you the game, they don't care about your account getting banned down the line because they already had your money.

Only a fool gives out their steam guard info, its like giving out your online banking info and 2 factor code.
If Steam catch on, which is easy due to the same IP activating the game on lots off accounts, a blanket banhammer is easily applied.

Stay safe people, don't fall for this sort of scam.
