IainMcNeil -> Coupon & Serial Issues (7/3/2015 9:43:48 AM)

Hi guys,

first off let me apologize for the issues and confusion. A number of things combined to really create a perfect storm here. This is how it works.

Anyone who has a copy of Revolution Under Siege from Slitherine/Ageod or Matrix is able to upgrade to the Gold version for just $4.99 ($14.99 if you want the boxed edition). Unfortunately it is not possible to offer this discount to people who bought else where as we do not have the serials to validate. We only have access to the serials that we generated. We understand some people will be upset about this but we simply don't have access to the information supplied by paradox at the time so no way to set this up.

You can redeem a Steam key with a revolution under siege Gold serial. ONLY RUS GOLD SERIALS CAN BE REDEEMED for a steam key. You cannot redeem a steam key for the original Revolution Under Siege as it does not exist on steam.

Now on to what went wrong
* The announcement about the discount was not made. This is just a brain freeze as everything was set up and we blanked the fact we had to announce it. If you have a serial from Slitherine/Matrix or Ageod you are eligible for the $20 discount. As mentioned above we cannot verify keys bought elsewhere so you cannot use them for a discount.
* The steam key redemption was not explained. Some people seemed to think RUS was now available on Steam. They were trying to redeem a steam key with their RUS serial. Only RUS Gold serials can be used to redeem a steam key. Combined with point 1 above this caused extra confusion.
* The steam redeem system was setup but not turned on for release. This is part of the standard test process so somehow it got missed on this release. No excuses here. Combined with the point above created more confusion.
* Some keys were missing. Ageod has been selling RUS for a very long time and some of the original batch of keys generated were missing from the list that was supplied for the discount codes. This was not noticed until we had support calls on keys that were valid and we found they were missing from the list.

These 3 things combined to make a disastrous first impression. We are very sorry for the confusion and lack of information and know its simply not good enough. We're having an internal review today to ensure this doesn't happen again. Once again apologies for the confusion and the system is up and running fully as intended now.

If you are still experiencing issues and you think your key should be valid please do contact support with your serial number so we can investigate. Note if you bought from another site there is unfortunately nothing support can do to help.

Edit - I forgot to add, if you bought the game at full price and have a valid coupon please contact support and they will issue you a refund for the difference.

Hopefully we can now move on to enjoying this great game and put the launch issues behind us.

Thanks

The Matrix/Slitherine & Ageod Teams

+1
No good deed goes unpunished.
I had no problem with my discount purchase of RUS Gold.

My serial number went through but Bluesnap doesn't seem to want to accept my Paypal payment, though Paypal has authorized it. Might be because I've changed my e-mail for here, and for Paypal. I've contacted them but haven't received a reply yet.

Ditto with triple bold underscore. This issue was handled as well as it could possibly be. Slitherine is a good outfit.

Who have you contact Paypal or Plimus?




jjdenver -> RE: Coupon & Serial Issues (7/4/2015 1:13:01 AM)

I bought it with the $20 discount for $4.99 since I already own original RUS, got the serial # and now want to activate on Steam.

On Steam I go to Games -> Activate a Product on Steam and input my serial # which is in the form XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX

Steam then gives me a message "Invalid Product Code"

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Thanks for the fast reply.
Plimus, there doesn't seem to be any problem on Paypal's end; they sent me an e-mail saying that they authorized the payment but slitherine hadn't accepted it yet.

Same problem with my serial, I bought RUS Gold yesterday




Capitaine -> RE: Coupon & Serial Issues (7/4/2015 12:42:49 PM)

You guys need to register the game on the Slitherine site and get your Steam key there. The key for RUS Gold won't work on Steam; you need a special Steam key.

Go to the Slitherine site, log in to your account (I think it uses your Matrix account info), and head to "My Page" under the Resources header. There you'll see a link for getting the Steam keys.




RedBunny -> RE: Coupon & Serial Issues (7/4/2015 4:10:05 PM)

If I buy the game from Matrix or Slitherine why would I want to play it through Steam? What are the advantages?

buy from Matrix or Slitherine you get a steam key as well, and support from here, so imo a better choice.




RedBunny -> RE: Coupon & Serial Issues (7/4/2015 4:30:18 PM)

I was thinking that too but what are the advantages of using Stream. Pretty basic question I know and thanks for your response.




IainMcNeil -> RE: Coupon & Serial Issues (7/6/2015 2:17:18 PM)

There is no advantage to playing through Steam. Its exactly the same.




gexmex -> RE: Coupon & Serial Issues (7/6/2015 3:23:01 PM)

deleted - I realized that I didn't purchase RUS Gold, just the original version. Sad panda [:(]
