    Left 4 Dead g2play

    Saw a deal posted here about buying Left 4 Dead keys on the g2play site. That site isnt working anymore, though it was earlier today, and i cant seem to find any trace of the deal here anymore either. Does anyone know whats happening and did i miss my chance at getting left 4 dead for a tenner?
    If anyone knows any other site thats similar to g2play and selling Left 4 Dead cheaply could they please share the link with me, I havent been able to find any. Thanks.

    Don't know of any other sites that are doing it for that price, but i'm waiting to see if I should report the site to PayPal as I purchased a key yesterday but it's yet to come through and the site's mysteriously not there anymore.

    The site was launched a year ago yesterday...........probably haven't paid for another year. lol

    Maybe thats the problem then! Will wait a few days see if they get back online.

    Fnerk, I have read lots of replys on different sites of people getting their code, so it seems to be above board. Hopefully this is just some stupid technical oversight and they'll get the site back online and start sending out codes again. Have you tried emailing them?

    Instantly after you have payed and confirmed at the G2PLAY site you should've received 2 emails.
    One with "additional information" about your email (This contains your code) and one asking for your order confirmation.

    I recieved one email from G2Play and one from PayPal - no additional information or code in either. I'll rattle off an email to the PayPal email address and see what's happening, seeing as the site's been down for at least 24 hours now.

    how much was the game anyway?

    $14.44, so just under a tenner.

    Not necessarily, it depends on whether it was an express deliver or a 24 hour deliver. I bought 2; one i got instantly and the second was delayed a day so I got it in 48 hours. They both worked fine BTW.

    I hope the site isn't gone forever, I was gonna buy summore stuff

    I definately hope the site isn't gone. I'll let you all know if I hear anything/don't hear anything by midweek.

    The domain is apparently 'undergoing verification', which, means the following:

    Domain is undergoing verification - the paid accounting period has ended. The domain name remains in this state for 15 days. Looks like it's down for another 13 days. I ordered my key on Friday and should have it by the end of today.

    Did anyone get a contact email address for g2play?

    Thanks for the PM ignorant Pom, I also found the site too late to purchase a key. Judging by comments from around the net it looks like it is worth the risk buying a key from them.

    Hopefully they're back soon as i'm eager to play the full game.

    OK, I emailed and got a really fast response:

    Dear customer

    As you have surely noticed our website went down in the last 36 hours and unfotunatley is still. The problem lays on the our webhosting provider and we are working on a quick fix for this issue. Unfortunatley we cannot fullfil your orders until the website is up again since we do not have any access to the eshop admin.

    We have all the keys in stock now, so you can be sure you will recieve yours as soon as possible.

    Please accept our deepest appology for the current situation. We will make sure this will not happen again.


    Thank you for your understanding

    G2PLAY Team

    Same.

    Happy days all round then, just have to wait for a little while long but worth it to save £15.

    I got a similar (albeit in more broken english) response, the site should be back up (hopefully) by tomorrow. Which is heartening, and should mean more cheap Left 4 Dead and Orange Boxes for everyone.

    It's back online BTW.

    Just completed my order with them, got the key straight away, and it works. When buying it I signed up for their site(didnt realise you just had to click on paypal symbol to pay) and it asked for my address and phone number, is that normal for a site that just sells keys through emails?

    Bah, and my key still hasnt come through.

    Bah, and my key still hasnt come through.



    Just badger them through the 'Ask for a transaction feature'. They gave me an extra 'point' (whatever that does).

    Ahh, will prob buy it this evening. However!

    Just found out that there is a 'Survival Pack' and Critic's Choice edition of the game on the way. No doubt 360 owners will be forced to cough up but will they charge PC gamers?

    Well that was frighteningly easy, amazed when the key appeared before my eyes on the site. Received a email a few seconds later confirming it.

    Will have to add you guys to my list for a match at some point?

    I went for a USD exchange rather than Euro, it actually seems like it was cheaper that way.

    Gave me a buzz too.

    My steam name is 'Ignorant Pom' if you want a game some time.

    My key came through about 15 minutes ago.

    Steam name: r3o* (which is subject to change).

    Popped home at lunch to start the download, code worked flawlessly
    Not sure what my steam account name is but will add you when I get home.

    Mine is still downloading, Virgin capping download speeds is very annoying! I'm Kells125 if anyone wants to add me, though I dont have a mic unless I can get my 360 headset working through the pc too.

    Wow, same boat! I'm with Virgin and speeds are terrible after 6pm (Hoping a large percentage has made it through so far). I did download the 1.5gb Halo Wars demo in 30 mins on Sunday afternoon though.

    I also need to find out if I can get the 360 headset working through the pad via Crossfire connection - Hassles! Alternatively, will my laptop mic and a pair of earphones work?

    My download speed halved within 30mins of starting to download, hasnt picked up since! I read somewhere that they cap your speeds if you download more than a certain amount before 9pm.

    I'd guess your laptop mic would work, I see no reason why it wouldnt.

    Just got home, amazingly it was on 99% complete. Shame I have a pounding headache :x

    Will add all the above to my list though, hopefully I'll feel like playing later on.

    Wow, finally got my code but the damn thing is invalid! Hopefully this will get sorted in the next few days. My Steam name is, unsurprisingly, Fnerk.

    Gutted. That was my initial fear as I copied it in, wouldn't have a clue what to do if it fails. Hope you get it sorted okay :thumbsup:

    Just paid the money and got the code straight away! Preparing to install now! so code works. Will update when done!

    This is really not working out for me. I'm still waiting for them to get back to me about the invalid CD Key I was sent. Considering all the positive feedback, i'm really surprised that I've fallen through the cracks and i'm out £10ish. I should have just waited and got it through Steam this weekend, as it's down in price. That'll teach me for buying from Polish websites that aren't as dodgy as they initially seem.

    How bloody typical, I think Valve go out of their way to irritate me.
    I swear if I hadn't bought it then it would not be the weekend deal.

    Guess I saved £3 though... Perhaps I should actually play it at some point too.

    Was going to go for this but unfortunately it says that the keys they have at the moment are the reduced violence version (german I guess). Does anyone know if this can be reverted to the full uncut version ? Until I find this out or they get new uncut keys I am hanging on. I really want to play this game though.

    Hi All,
    The uncut version of the game is now back in stock at G2play. Order in dollars to get it for about £15.14. I did it on saturday everything went fine and was playing Left 4 Dead on Sunday (the game is great BTW). You need to order through the old website as I do not think you can specify the change of currency in the new one.

    Hi everyone,

    I just wanted to share my negative experiences with g2play.net for those who are considering purchasing something from this website.

    On 19th July this year I purchased a 1-year Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 license from g2play.net. Despite being slow in sending my activation key after payment, the key they eventually did send me worked properly and was reported to be valid for 365 days. Needless to say, I was quite pleased at the time.

    Recently however, my Kaspersky license became blacklisted and allowed me to no longer use my internet security software. This is despite having some 285 days left remaining on my subscription.

    I have attempted to contact g2play.net numerous times over the past week, leaving messages on their website as well as several emails, asking for a solution or a replacement key. All my emails and enquiries have been ignored over this time. This is despite the business still being in operation, as their website continues to be updated.

    As a last resort, I turned to paypal and tried lodging a dispute. However, as many of you may be aware there is a 45 day limit for lodging disputes, which made a paypal dispute for a refund unsuccessful.

    So in short, g2play.net appears to sell blacklisted keys that appear to be (illegally?) obtained. They will not offer you any support, they will not respond to your emails should your product become unusable. This may particularly be the case after 45 days, when you can no longer raise a paypal dispute.

    Lastly, I want to say from personal experience that while it may be tempting to buy something at low cost, you should understand that there is a likelihood your product will stop working in the future, and that g2play.net will ignore you entirely when this happens.

    I apologise in advance for the long post, but thanks for reading.

    Yongy, shot in the dark here, did you contact Kaspersky about your blacklisting? Wouldn't THAT be the place to go?! Just because you got blacklisted 80 days into your usage, does not instantly mean that G2play sold a blacklisted key. Otherwise, it wouldn't have worked for that long in the first place.

    I know plenty people who have bought games from them with no issues.

    Just to reiterate, you should contact Kaspersky about your key being blacklisted and ask them why that is the case.
