Assassin´s Creed III
As for the other guy, dunno why Ubisoft is making you do all that, unless you bought a russian/stolen key from one of those less than legit sites?
Dunno why they would refuse it. Sounds too weird that.
If you have proof of buying the game from Steam, and did nothing to lose your account etc, then it should be working.
Why did Ubisoft say no to you? They have to have a valid reason as why. If they don't then they are illegally holding back a legally paid for game.
Also you have to ask Steam why also, as they sold it to you in the first place.
EDIT: Re-read your initial post, if you bought from Steam, then it should still be in your games list. And you should have a seperate account for Uplay where the key is activated.
So yeah Ubisoft has to give you a valid reason on why they de-activated your key.

Do not bring up bad blood from previous posts that have nothing to do with your topic or it will get ugly for you to. What he posted in the past concerning violations of the rules is between the moderation team and him (not you).

as a matter of fact the key is mine. legally bought. i tried logging into uplay with that key and it said "invalid". i have notified ubisoft about that and they replied I would have to reassure them of the key being mine. made the screenshot and they wanted me to further verify who I am, where I live, make a copy of my ID and include it either in an email or letter.
i told them that steam has proven to be a genuine gamer platform for years and if that might not have been proof enough for ubisoft? i suppose someone might have used a key generator and hit my key, therefore now exists twice. i didn't have the game installed for quite some time and i am not sure if i ever registered the game before...don't even know since when uplay exists, don't recall. nevertheless, the whole process took 4 weeks with them repeating what i would have to proof and me neglecting. bought the game legally on a legal gamer platform, why the hell do i have to proof more than i already did? sorry, i refused. they do not own me, i just happen to have owned a game of them. to cut it short, i am done with that company. we both know how easy it is to get a game for less what you pay on steam, gamersgate etc (illegally of course) but within 20 years of legal game purchases I have never experienced a more customer unfriendly behavior as shown by ubisoft. therefore, no more games from them. that's all. no matter how good they may be. the time i spent communicating with that so-called customer service was useless. i hate wasting time and as much as i like playing good games, i can also turn the pc off. took me some time but eventually it happened. thanks anyways.
EDIT: I might have also used another uplay account which i never used again. that's what uplay does not allow. you cannot use YOUR OWN game (not bought on uplay!) and play it on two different UPLAY accounts. even if the platform you originally purchased the game from is genuine, meaning the key is unique...what the hell? why not divide so far down so that i have to use 11 logins and 11 passwords to finally be able to play a game that i have paid for. as if one platform isn't enough. sooner or later i am done with gaming with all these steps inbetween. i am done with this topic also.
