I no longer have the flash drive the CD key and install were preloaded on. Ex had formatted it to make room for something else. >.< I have purchase history as proof of buying D3 Collectors. Is there a way to recover the keys? I checked my account and it doesn’t show the classic games on my list.
I’m not sure. I wonder about this myself? The only CD keys that pop up for me are the two I’ve bought in the last few years, my collector’s cdkey isn’t on my list.
Also, I found my usb last night but where is the cd key? Is it preloaded onto the USB installation files?
Edit: I stuck my usb in last night, but I didn’t try very hard to install it. Since D2 was already installed on the default path, the usb just gave me the option to uninstall when I opened the .exe file. If I get to experiment more and find out, I’ll update my findings here.
Edit2:"Starcraft and Broodwars are in no way associated with the StarCraft II Collector’s edition authentication key. The key for the first game is obtained during the install process from the Jim Raynor Dog tag USB drive which came with the collector’s edition.
To claim your key you would need to install StarCraft via that USB drive after which you can then add the game key to your Battle.net account.
As Diablo 3 has yet to be released I can only guess the process will be the same, in that you would need to run the install process from the Diablo Skull USB drive to obtain your keys."
So you will be able to add them to your BNet account by installing them from the USB that is included.
So to sum it up, if you don’t currently have the game installed or on you bnet account and you can’t find the USB you may have to fork over another $20 for another cd key.
But let me tell you, if you fork over $20 for the game again your money won’t be going toward stopping bots
I guess the Blizz strategy is to ride the coat tail of D2 and drop D3 to resounding success. Make D3 a solid 6-7/10, playeable for sure. Make it simple so it can easily port to console. Next, continue to aggravate the D2 fan base by ignoring the game completely, let bots run rampant. Get D2 loyalists very angry about D3 then ignore D2 cheaters as well. Make sure your D2 fans start thinking twice about what they think the name Blizzard means. Is it quality? Maybe not, it sure used to be. I think the focus has switched to profit for sure, however, I can hold a grudge.
Blizzard company values : profit$$$$, not Hong Kong
For the love of god, charge a server fee and do some basic work on the servers. If it’s so expensive to keep this game going, charge your customers and keep it quality!
I’d hate to spend more money on it as i owned it originally, then now in the collectors addition. I want to play it, but I’m having a hard time convincing myself. lol
Kinda sucks they didn’t provide another location for the key other than digitally. Could easily have been in insert somewhere in the box it all came in.
