12. Re: Black Ops II: Stats Reset? No. FOV Fix? Yes Nov 12, 2012, 17:15 eRe4s3r
 
I used VPN many many times to get early access to games I bought (elsewhere that is, not on Steam bought, but registered key on steam) and was never banned. But I was VERY careful never to let steam go online after unlocking game with VPN until the game was unlocked in my region. And I entered the key properly before, so it was preloaded and literally just "waiting for unlock" after unlock. I would disconnect the VPN, switch Steam to offline and never be seen again until release day.

Your friend is the first mention I ever heard of anyone getting banned for using vpn PURELY to unlock a game earlier. Maybe he bought with VPN or entered the key while connected via VPN, that would be a clear violation of several EULA sections. But just "logging in" with a VPN active is not illegal nor forbidden. Ain't your fault steam gets confused with active connections.... and thinks I teleported to South Korea....
