# 1 Buying from XFire
02-13-2010, 08:58 PM
So Amazon was taking their good old sweet time getting me my game and I finally got tired of it, asked for a refund. Amazingly enough, they agreed without a fight. So now I'm choosing a digital distributor, thinking I'm going to go with XFire, the 500 Cryptic points are the most appealing. I just want to confirm from someone else who's bought from XFire, I'll get the account key right off, right? Won't have to worry about waiting to download the game or launching it through XFire? I don't think it'll be like that but I just want to confirm.

Do they still have the 500 Cryptic Points? It doesn't list it on the website.

Id recommend Steam,

the 500 points is included along with other useful items.

Argh. Wish you had mentioned that orders from Steam tend to take a few hours.

Clarify.

Do you mean the actual download? Or the time it takes to clear a credit card?

If the latter it should go thru instantly and allow you to start downloading

Also if you are experiencing slow download speeds go to


File>Settings>Downloads Tab

and change your download region analog to your location.
