Exclamation Forum Notice Revision

I've recently had a discussion with a few friends that are new to DCS. There was the usual confusion regarding activation across the two different platforms.

The below notice on the forums currently state:

"""Only DCS World keys purchased from these locations are valid purchases and can be activated in the Module Manager:

DCS E-Shop
Heatblur Store
1C, Gamazavr and YuPlay in Russia
Acealpha in South Korea
Any DCS World keys purchased from other sources are invalid and are simply trying to re-sell keys that are bound to other users or purchased through fraud. Such sites include Kinguin, CDExpress and G2A.

If you purchase DCS World keys from these sites, we cannot help you. We suggest you contact these sites for a refund."""

However, in this post the situation is outlined differently for modules M2000C and after.

Delete this post if needed, but it may be prudent to update the notice board with something that is clearer for the benefit of new users. I've played for a long while, but this seems like it could be misleading to a newer player.

Do Not Confuse Efforts With Results.

The post you are quoting is aimed at keys from G2A and Kinguin etc. So if you buy from those websites, ED can not help you, thats what the message is aimed at.

The post you are linking is about the cross-platform activation.

Keys bought on website (E-shop) > Will not work on Steam and vice versa.

Simple as that, no need for revisions

Any modules on steam from the release of the M2K will have steam keys older modules will still use starforce keys.

Anywhere else apart from ED store and steam they [ED] can not help you.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
