L4D2 Pre-Purchase unfair regional pricing

If you are thinking about pre-purchasing L4D2, you should think twice, as you might be yet another victim of Valve's regional pricing scam. Previously only differing the price between US Dollar, Euro and British Pound, they now topped it by even discriminating between the European countries. So we not only have the well known unfair price difference between Dollar, Euro and Pound: US L4D2 Pre-Purchase: $44.99 EU L4D2 Pre-Purchase: 44,99€…

Future Chat Events will be held on our IRC Channel only.

While our "defeat the admin" TF2 event was a full success and I believe that we all had a lot of fun, the chat party - unfortunaly - was an uncontrollable chaos. The Steam Group Chat proved suitable of smaller amounts of users, but absolutely not for several hundred people with many of them spamming nonsense or virus links. The chats programming seems to be flawed and inefficient too, seeing…

Here is a picture of the response: (mirror) The person responding appears to be not understanding the issue. Or is it that we did not understand the issue at the time? We must be reminded that the original issue was 1 euro…
