Why didnt goa/mythic make the keys for catac available to buy online which then forwards us to another update for game files (around 300mb i believe) ? would have saved alot of this mix-up we got now which has left most uf us in UK wit no catac on the release :(

Standard reason is because the deal with distributors doesnt allow for it.

(See the Valve vs Vivendi arguments for what happens when publishers think their slice of the profit is being threatened)

GOA stated that you'll be able to buy online keys -except- for Cats. Which is good, since the distributors can earn money from the first sales, and people who join the game later, don't have to rely on impossible to get expansion sets.

Any situation that takes the game out of the control of the established distributors is a good one. GOA might not be to blame for the current situation, but they are responsible for it - none of us have anything to do with any of the other parties involved in the distribution. ;)

tbh if I was goa's legal rep i'd be looking very carefully at their cata's distribution contract. If there was a bit saying "we'll get it out when we said we will" or soemthing, then by missing that, they're in breach of contract, so goa could terminate it, and then put the CD key sales live :D
