    Each card is worth about $0.22 and they're giving away, I believe, three to each member of the winning team. Do the math. This is class-action lawsuit material.


    It appears that they stopped predetermining winners. Purple was first, now Red is clearly going to take it.

    I totally agree, this looks like it was a failed experiment on their part.

    Everyone who put up threads on the steam forums stating that it was rigged was immediately locked out and banned last night :laugh:

    I'm not too invested.
    I just think that Valve should be more honest about their practices.
    That's all I'm saying.
    Like RCoon said it would be better if they said everyone has a chance to win instead of the random bs.

    I didn't follow this Steam sale so far (my back log is enough heh), but dang you guys are way over-analyzing some marketing ... class action over some video game entertainment and virtual items? First world problems for sure!

    Meh.I couldn't care who wins. I'm just waiting for GTA IV complete pack to go in the flash sale. Hopefully it will.

    EDIT: wow just one day later it got cheaper and I did get it. 6 euros for 5 games is ok.

    I hear you, it would've been nice but I still appreciate the sale nonetheless. As for the competition, it was looking like it was no longer rigged but I haven't checked today since I'm at work and can't.

    :confused: I've never even been able to understand this whole badge and trading card system, so I don't pay it any attention.

    Well, in this competition, whenever you craft a badge, you get points which will enter you in the steam "sweepstakes" to win games from your wishlist. That is of course if your team is at least on the 3rd place.

    Which kinda stinks, since I'm not level 8 yet, so I get no entries, but oh well. It is what it is.

    thanks, was trying to find you :) Appreciate the assist! Not a very "social" steam person, but would like the opp to win a game on my wishlist :)

    not sure what the deal is... I commented on, and uploaded, a screenshot this morn, which unlocked me the "Pillar of Community", which should have given me 100 XP, and the next level, but I'm still stuck :(

    crafting badges levels you up too!
    That's how I got from lvl 5 to 9.
    traded some of my "cards" with ones I needed to complete a badge and BAM! lvld up.

    spending money on games works too.
    I know someone who is lvl90 legit.
    He's got over 900 games..........

    For anyone interested Guild Wars 2 is on sale for $25 on their site until 6/29. It's not for everyone but I enjoyed it for a while. It's worth $25 just to play through to level 80 and explore the zones imo.

    Made it to level 10, unintentionally :) I ended up adding $5 to my wallet, because I really wanted to get the stupid credit for winning a day, bought enough to make lvl 8 making badges, then bought a few more just because, and now I'm back over $5 again today selling the ones I don't need :) thanks for the assistance again! the emoticon and background really helped.
