More G2A Follow-up

The recent post on the G2A Website has an update from the keyseller following user feedback to their original post and a petition asking G2A to Stop selling indie titles that was started by Mike Rose. This all began with comments from some developers saying they'd prefer to have their games pirated over being purchased from G2A, alleging that shady practices keep them from seeing any revenue from such sales. Now G2A attempts to clarify one of the points many have seized upon, and says they will come back "in a couple of days" with a solution:
We received lots of feedback – both positive and negative. Developers themselves have offered some ideas and suggestions regarding the ways we can solve the issues they have with our platform. We need some time to put it all together. We’ll get back to you in the next couple of days with a solution.

Of all the negative comments, the following sentence was the most common:
“G2A admits they’re the problem because if not them, someone else would do it anyways”

Some developers cannot accept the fact that people have full rights to re-sell the things they own. It’s a problem for those developers, but not for us or anyone else. And certainly not for gamers who have access to cheaper products, games included, thanks to marketplaces such as G2A.

What we are saying is: “It’s a good thing that people can re-sell keys and, with or without G2A, they will continue to do so.”

Let us not forget the whole subscription service you can apply for on G2A that will protect you from the supposed tiny amount of fraudulent keys they offer....I mean, just have that service alone should raise a couple red flags, but then to charge for it should be the huge red klaxon of "beware"...

I love opinions based on outdated and/or inaccurate info. You never needed to subscribe to that service to get refunds for revoked keys. I had two revoked keys, filed support tickets for both with screenshots of the revocation notices and got full refunds immediately.

FYI, G2A doesn't even offer that "protection" service anymore. Not that you ever needed it to begin with. Their subscription service now just gives you bonus discounts, a larger cut from keys you sell, currency for loot boxes (yes, loot boxes are unfortunately common on reseller sites now), giveaways, etc.

Oh, so because they don't offer the service anymore means that it should be forgotten about?

As I said, these should be major red flags that a service was created in the first place, even if they didn't 'require' it.

Since apparently you seem quite willing to go to bat for them, can you then explain to me why they have basically admitted to being shady at best with the comment about "if we weren't doing it someone else would"? Or, how about the time when they partnered with Gearbox and then Gearbox went "nope" after the Totalbiscuit video?

Or if we want super recent things to question...why is it that G2A released yet another statement stating that they will be "working on" being better about their service? I mean, wasn't the last 4 or 5 times of them saying it enough?

For a company that is supposedly above-board when it comes to validity of their service, they shouldn't be having these constant stories about them.
