I saw some software store when I in collage since 2003 to 2007.and this kind of store sold cd such as this one in the picture.
The disc in this picture was clearly a fake, and some pirates had packaged it as if it were copyrighted software. I aslo played pirate CMBB sinice 2006－2008,sorry for that.
when from 2010 to 2014, we(about 10+ chinese player) give money to a friend who lived in USA,he helped me buy the CMSF,CMBN,CMFI,CMRT and DLC with them,because we did not how to buy the game self at that time. my friend give us the actived key to run the game. Through this time I still didn't know there are a account in bfc.com which the game key binding with it.I aslo register the fourm in 2006,and I thought there are only fourm account ,no store account.
In 2014 ,after we play the cmrt for several days,some player and I found the actived key were all the same.We gave 10+ times money,and only one key?! So we asked the friend in America,he said it seems only one key in one account ,no matter how many times the money.From that time ,I found the exist of the account in bfc.com and game binding with it.
Now I have a account in bfc.com and bought most of CM game besides cmsf2 and cma.Some key which bought through the friend's account were lose efficacy，so I bought the game again binding with my own account.
I aslo wait the DLC of CMRT for nearly 6 years.hope before the May in 2020.
