    Yes, if you buy the retail pack you get 5 codes you can redeem in the "my profile" page. If you already have an account it will add the gems and special items to that account. Haven't tried to install the game on my computer, only used the codes myself. So for an answer to that question maybe someone else will know better, but I don't think it will be a problem.

    I think many people don't want to install the game, but I guess having a client as opposed to playing in the browser makes the game run smoother. Personally, I'm happy with the browser option, and buying gems online when I can afford to. Having the disc will just use up space at home, collecting dust.

    Maybe they should just sell a card with the codes on instead, like some other online games do.

    lol i wonder what the carbon footprint of the box is after all the designing, printing, packaging, delivery etc etc when all we wanted is an email-able code

    Plus the fact that they would be able to save money by having no disc or packaging, which they could then pass on to their customers by reducing the price. All I can think of, is that they use the packaging in shops to advertise the game. There will be people browsing through the games who didn't know that Settlers is now an online game too. And as Settlers is a popular series of games ( I have bought the first 4 games ), this would attract those who enjoyed the previous ones. :-)

    Yeah why cant we just get the codes the same way we purchase Gems????

    2 to 5 week wait when it can all be done in a few clicks of a mouse.
