Nevertheless, Valve has ultimately owned up to the error and offered some sort of compensation. Players affected by the software glitch received an apologetic email from CEO Gabe Newell explaining that the error wasn't something inherent to Modern Warfare 2, and said that erroneous bans have now been reversed and accounts have been restored. In addition, the company has also given two free copies of Left 4 Dead 2 to all affected players, one of which can be gifted to a friend through Steam. That said, if you already owned a copy of the popular zombie shooter I guess there's not much in it for you other than the gift of giving.
