It's really frustrating me now. Some people will buy multiple copies of a game leaving, none left for others to purchase.

I check this site every day for to see whether the latest humblebundle games have been restocked. I'll often go look and find some trader has bought 10+ copies of it, leaving nothing in stock.

Of course people have the right to do this. But, I find it incredibly selfish to take multiple copies of a game that is low on stock. Tremor games should implement '1 per customer' for certain items.

This.
For the crappy games that keep being restocked even if they arent on any bundles (and dunno why) there's no need for a limit, but for the decent games from HumbleBundle and Bundle Stars I think it's a good idea put a limit of copy buys.

It would be bad for business for Tremor to put a stop on people buying multiple copies, it will never happen.

If there is profit in allowing us to purchase humble bundle games, why is the stock always 0? There in very high demand for these, yet during my daily check, all copies are sold out.

How about a temporary 1 per customer for bundle games (humblebundle and bundle stars) which lasts 24 hours upon stocking an item. So if copies are still left after that time, the bulk purchasers can have their turn.

2nd time you stress that you login and check tremorgames daily but appearently not reading the forums well. or why you feel the need to open the 379th complain thread about this? we can only exchange the same arguments over and over again. nothing will change.

same with humble bundle. you dont need to tell there is high demand for the bundles but it should be long known now that unfortunately the purchases are limited and tremor cant buy multiple copies anymore. the (re)stock solely depends on user tradeins. you can count the copies with one hand and ofc they are gone fast even without multiple buyers.

Thank you for the links. I have now read the admin statement threads. I saw no info about humblebundle purchases being limited. It wasn't something I was aware of. But that would explain why there's so little stock.

Still, It's frustrating for me, the consumer (and obviously countless other people), that the little stock that is available gets depleted quicker with resellers buying large quantities of said item. But I guess, from a business pespective, there is no incentive for the site to change things.

However, I did like the recommendation in one thread. A system was suggestede whereby a user could essentially reserve a game for a small fee. Perhaps if that system was implemented, it could be limited to 1 game reservation per account? That seems a fair solution that would benefit the site and keep everyone happy.

I have read in other posts about this issue and one user had a good idea. Allow a one copy reserve on titles that way everybody gets a fair chance at getting one if there are any left over let your resellers have at em.

And whats the difference for Tremorgames, when a reseller buys lots of copies in the very first minute or when users buy one copy => in the end there is no stock and Tremorgames gets his commerce. So why no steps against this multibuying?
And what's wrong with multiple posts regarding this annoying theme? The employees answers to all these wrong topics "Please post in support"...why not answering here, too? Would it be so hard?

It will never stop, would be bad business like I said. Pointless crying about it over and over again, nothing will change and Tremor have already said this.And Godofhelfire the Admin says "please post in support" simply because that is where you are meant to post, it's not rocket science.

You can also just buy the bundle for couple bucks if it has a game that you absolutely must have. Problem solved and no waiting for it to appear and be in stock elsewhere.

just because the "same old complaint" keeps coming around doesnt mean it should be dismissed. ideas such as a time period where people can only obtain 1/5/10 copies of a game is not a bad idea. those who buy 100+ copies will still be there when that time is up, and before that it allows everyday normal users to get in on new games. those guys are only taking the games and selling them on g2a for profit. believe me, if they had to wait a week/month/etc they would still be waiting and will buy out all the copies

so you have 1 scenario where many users get copies and another where a profiteer buys them all and sells them for gain on g2a

in both instances all the copies get bought, how do you argue against that? its not a bad idea or impossible to implement and hurts the site none, the items will be redeemed, just not 99 at once (at least not for the time period)

if you look at the "hot items" bar you see old games pop up time and time again when these guys redeem 30+ copies, you really think they give a damn if they have to wait a day or 2? im sure they would just because greedy people would but business goes on as usual

business model: turn in key, get 1500 coins, use 1500 coins to buy 15-30 games, sell 15-30 games for 50 cents profit, 15 games $7.50, 30 games $15, purchase more keys at $2.50 and repeat. 1 key becomes 3 minimum and you rinse repeat (some 3rd world country guy ends up getting a big mac for dinner)

It should be dismissed because TremorGames is a business where it's better to sell faster, not a charity where everyone getting their share is some virtuous principle. In free market economy people can buy what they want when they want just like Tremor is able to buy 100s of bundles even when someone might not be able to buy even 1. With the whiner logic they shouldn't buy more than 1 bundle before everyone else got theirs and there would be nothing to sell here. If you didn't get the game you so desperately wanted from here, tough luck, next time just buy the bundle to begin with and the problem goes away. Or buy it from Steam sales like most others. It really is as simple as that, you don't have any magical reason why you deserve to get a game more than anyone else who has the coins to buy it.

Actually if it's "money" you want then you might want more active/happy users because you act like you actually give a shit about them by allowing a fair chance at new games. Douches like yourself are part of the "it's all mine" category that don't want this because you sell on g2a and want to buy all the copies (screw everyone else right? I'm all about myself attitude). It's completely laughable to have such a mentality and be unable to acknowledgeit. Lol

If you knew anything about business practices you'd understand, but I doubt you majored in business management. Let alone anything else, hence g2a reseller >.>

Douches like you are the problem everywhere, blaming others for their own problems with random false accusations. You don't seem to get even the simplest things about how business works, so that's all you can do. Can't really remember ever selling any game other than 2 Battlefields that I had no use for (or some crappy FPS, not sure) that came with GPUs I bought and that I did locally. I don't even buy from shitholes like G2A where most stuff is bought with stolen credit cards and cashed long before they get revoked. So try again with your insults mr "majored in business management but have no idea how free market works"

(Douche mode activated) yeah bro? (End) What does someone like yourself do with 32 copies of Frankenstein? Not for profit? Hmmm maybe you have a lot of friends and you're just a nice guy. Yeah that's it.

In case you haven't caught on you'll never not be the guy who is all for himself and screw everyone else. Sad part is if you looked in a mirror you'd still not see it. It's funny for me though how clueless some can be.

Still haven't made one cent from any of this. If that's the only thing you can imagine people doing that tells more about you than anyone else. You're the selfish asshole who thinks others shouldn't be able to buy something you want, but that's still not how free market works. And with your silly attitude you should be against Tremor who is reselling bundles for their own profit. Please tell me how is that any different from anything you imagine me doing?

Not really checking but I would guess I have traded in more Humble games to here than I have bought. At least they usually cost too many coins and since I'm not selling them there isn't any point. If the bundle has a game I actually want I'll just buy it from Humble instead of crying here, because that's the only sensible thing to do. But some people are so greedy they can't give couple bucks to charity to get a game they want, it has to be free.
