C&C: RA 3 serial is missing one character

EA's solution: Guess it! No seriously, guess it!

 

We had a pretty good laugh this morning after seeing EA’s method to fix an issue that shouldn’t be an issue in the first place. Namely, something went wrong in the process of printing C&C: Red Alert manuals, so some users received a 19 character CD key, instead of the 20 character one.

Naturally, users complained so EA came up with a solution that would impress your average ape. They advised their users to do the following; are you ready, sit tight, this is going to blow your mind – GUESS!
