alright, so the team version of AC:B is finally up, but when I try to enter my code at the activation.exe it says my serial number is invalid. How can this be? i literally copied the one that steam gave me....
also i noticed the code was like this:
XXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX,
should the first three digits be four?

i installed it from a friends cd who bought the game at a retailer, its still downloading through steam, although its already at 14% with 1.3 mb/s.
could this be the problem, that the steam version is different and uses different types of serials?

On my code the first digits are also 3, but I haven't still finish the download to try it.
My download speed is between 100kbps and 500kbps (a little unstable) and yet it will take a few hours.

alright, so its not just my code thats missing a digit, i hope it will just be that i have to play through steam to make it work. maybe this is why it was delayed

I have the same problem... waiting for a useless steam download.

alright, i got it to work. It just had to finish downloading from steam.
And everything works! I'm actually surprised about how fast you can get in a multiplayer match, since i've seen how it goes on xbox

steam key codes and retail key codes are usually different for games
