Aren't g2a supposed to be a bit shady?


Very, Gearbox software tried to get them to clean up their act as part of a deal, G2A did none of what they agreed forcing Gearbox to back out and expose them online.

Gearbox just wanted them to take steps towards being a legitimate site and to stop selling stolen keys or allowing others to do it so easily through them,
The deal was in their best interests only and some of the stuff was pretty standard and easily achievable.

G2A needed their bad image improving and this would have helped them greatly, instead they just exposed how bad of an outfit they really were.

Scamming people with G2A shield charges, working keys should be guaranteed, you shouldn't have to pay extra to them for the gamble of buying a stolen key and getting your game revoked.

Steam Sale starts tomorrow, no harm in people waiting to see some legitimate sale prices!

Thieves, if you have any morals then don't buy from these rogues.

I was put off by their 'if you don't pay extra for this cover then you accept all responsibility for not receiving anything for your money' tick box at checkout last night.
Oh and their fee for paying by debit card, or PayPal.

I can't see any real sale prices, all looks to be the usual amount.
A shop that is so risky they actually offer insurance for their merchandise, any other store wouldn't charge extra for tthis, or require this even, they would just replace what doesn't work, because their keys aren't stolen, and don't get revoked by ubisoft/ea/steam
Boycott this company.

That's putting it mildly, to say the least.
While I'm glad people here are refusing to upvote G2A, other shady grey market sellers like CDKeys generate a lot of upvotes.

There's no bait. Grey market sellers are inherently shady.

other stores have been proven to be shady due to stolen and revoked keys, I've recently had customer service issues with 2 other sites which turned out to be acting fraudulently according to paypal.
Haven't seen any evidence of cdkeys being illegitimate, I am fairly sure if they were people would have yelled louder in comments by now.
So many grey market sellers are shady it seems like you are just tarring them with the same brush without reason, cdkeys seems to be on the up and level, possibly scdkey also - I've shopped at scdkey and hasn't gone wrong yet, though I only did it once, havent heard anything bad of them yet but I am quite skeptical of new websites now
Was sold a code bought with a stolen credit card by G2A and even with Shield they didn't lift a finger to help.

If you buy the codes sold by G2A themselves you should be good, but on the marketplace there's always a risk.

Would rather torrent a game (which I obviously have no idea about, just something I heard) than give money to this lot!
Only had issues with non working keys once where it was slightly wrong but they helped me after about an hour (without g2a shield).

Let's face it, the keys are suspect but what do you expect when the prices can be a 5th of the price elsewhere.

I don't use them a lot as I prefer cdkeys but they are good for some things.

I feel like the people voting cold are people who try and shame places like g2a but then use stuff like Kodi or buy from knock off dealers for other stuff.

I definitely don't use sites when they are like this, recently had interactions with 2 sites I found out to be questionable after purchasing there, it took days/hours getting nowhere with their customer support uploading tons of screenshots, and finally took 1 hour on a phonecall to paypal explaining what happened, at which point they recovered the money for me when the 2 website's customer services were trying to make me jump through fraudulent hoops before I would get to purchase anything.
