G2A Refutes Unknown Worlds' Claim [Updated]

A post from G2A strikes back at Unknown Worlds for their recent allegation that G2A owes them $300K. Charlie Cleveland tweeted the claim based on G2A's promise to reimburse developers tenfold for credit card chargebacks caused by G2A's services (thanks PC Gamer). G2A claims the alleged theft and sale of the Subnautica keys in question took place before they existed, saying this makes Charlie's statement on the topic slander. If it was false, such a statement would actually be libel, but that's probably beside the point. Here's their response:
Launched in 2014, G2A Marketplace was celebrating its 5th birthday this year. The said keys were allegedly stolen and sold before March 8, 2013 – 6 years ago. Charlie wrote: “We paid $30,000 to deal with credit card chargebacks because of G2A.” That’s just slander, and we expect him to at least edit his posts, if not straight up apologize.

However, if Charlie Cleveland would like us to hire a professional auditing company to check if the keys from before 2014 appeared on a non-existing marketplace, we encourage him to contact the G2A Direct team, as per the initial offer.
