Steam blocking FM gifts to Brazilian accounts

Recommended Posts

I don't know where is the right place to talk about this, but, I'm from Brazil and the Football Manager situation is getting kinda ridiculous here.

The game went from supporting Brazilian Portuguese to barely acknowledging the existence of the Brazilian FM community.

We know the game isn't sold here for reasons that can't be discussed. Which sucks, but what sucks most is the absence of an official statement explaining the reasons, but, maybe SI hands is tied in legal procedures or something of the kind.

And know, we suffered another blow in our opportunities of having access to the game we love. We have found a way of circumventing the region-block on Steam, like the germans did when FM wasn't sold there. The method is pretty simple, someone with an account outside Brazil buys the game and resell it, delivering the game via gift. Now, Steam has blocked this method just for FM to brazilian accounts. So, we just need a clarification: this is SI doing because of not officially selling the game in the country or is something coming from Steam?

As you are well aware, this is a licensing issue and so SI will not comment and of course methods of getting round any licensing issue cannot be discussed on the forums, so this will need to be locked.  The distribution of the game is done by SEGA not SI, who are purely the developers
