    [AC3]"this CD key or activation key has been banned" on a just unboxed version

    So apparently, some bastard has managed to get my AC3 Freedom Edition CD key banned, because I bought this game today and i haven't even played it yet. I got this error on activation in the Uplay browser. i've already contacted Ubisoft Support about this, but is there anything else I could do?
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    There is nothing you can do short of contacting ubisoft.

    Being that you've already contacted Ubisoft, I think you might as well wait. The only other thing I guess you could have done was go straight back to wherever you bought it and explained the issue.

    sadly being that it is a PC copy the store will not take it back for exchange. I know it sucks, but have you tried entering the key without the dash's between the numbers/letters? try different variations on O/0/Q since they can look alike, L/l/i/I/1 can all look alike too, short of doing that i'd say ring ubisoft and patiently wait the the queue time to actually speak to someone

    yeah, Terrorwave, i've tried that. when i do that, the CD key is not recognized, so, yeah... all I can do is wait.

    I made a call to the retailer, or rather, my father did. apparently, the shipment containing the game was assaulted, and the thieves took off with the CD keys. I can go and pick up a new one on Saturday.
