Buckle up, kids, because this story is a doozy. Over at the Reboot Develop Conference in Croatia today, one of the representatives of G2A held a panel to discuss the recent backlash the oft-scrutinized game key reseller has been receiving. Senior Account Manager of G2A, Mario Mirek, did his best to defend the company's business practices amidst a crowd of displeased developers who were looking for answers. That just sounds like a recipe for disaster, but it somehow gets worse.
To start, Mirek insisted that G2A does not operate as a "gray market." According to him, all the business they do is legitimate. Mirek was also surprised Gearbox ended its business deal with G2A and assumed the reasoning was because of TotalBiscuit and not its "shady" business dealings. This still does nothing to address why G2A is refusing to make the changes Gearbox issued, but that is another story.
In response to a question on why the company has taken so long to alter its policies, Mirek bafflingly commented that 40 percent of G2A's workforce was female.
