Just got word from the Developer Ragnor that indeed the serial key problems some have been experiencing where they have received 6x4 keys in the format of aaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd-eeee-ffff (which do not activate Warband) from retail purchases through Germain re-sellers such as Saturn or Amazon.de are due to a mix-up at the publisher, Paradox Interactive.
Please contact Paradox Interactive for a resolution to this problem. Either email their support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org
or initiate a support ticket at https://paradox.zendesk.com/homeEDIT
- this issue has spread to Steam-distributed keys. See this thread
