Ok now I have another hassle to deal with. I've just got Dawn of War 2 in new condition and find that the cd key is duplicated. Does anyone know how I could somehow recover it? I'd really rather not contact Steam Support and wait for up to 2 months just to have them tell me to wait even longer. I have entered my key over and over and it keeps coming up as a Duplicate. Any tips would be much appreciated.

Here's some possibilities....

Pirated game
Illegal Download
Shared keys

And It won't take two months to sort a legit issue with a phone call to tech support.

My suggestion: Call the game's tech support and have them figure it out. If it's legit they should be able to sort the problem rather quickly, If it not legit.... well I suggest you purchase a legitimate game from a reputable retailer.

Good luck.
