EA details fixes for broken Red Alert 3 serial keys

As reported by Joystiq, EA’s moved to fix a couple of serial key issues with Red Alert 3.

Some people were getting their key pinged back with “invalid,” while others were shy of a digit for their 20-number code.

From this post on the EA forums:

  • Invalid key issue: EA says the issue should be resolved by now. It involved a “small amount” of keys not being pre-loaded to the company’s “backend.” Coincidentally, the same place where customers probably felt like they were kicked.
  • Manual has 19 digits instead of 20: Either click here to contact customer service, or resolve the issue by trial and error. The only thing missing is the last digit, which is either “a number from 0 – 9 or a letter from A – Z.” That leaves only 36 possibilities.

So there you are. Go get strategizing.
