I hope I can at least get my money back with whatever they end up being worth.

Valve let you melt cards and items down into gems, which can be used to bid on games in the auction or re-crafted into new booster packs for 400 - 1200ish gems depending on the game. People found a way to exploit infinite gems, they were selling infinitely for 3 cents per 1000 on the marketplace, everyone bought as many gems and possible and crafted them into booster packs to sell back for 5-10x profit, trading card economy is totally fucked.

Valve does an auction event.
It involves gems, which you get from either the market or by items.
BRs dupe millions of gems
People buy the gems on the market and craft booster packs
People sell the booster packs, lowering the price of cards across the board.
Retards get rid of all the items for the event, but find out they can't even get anything from it because richfags and dupefags have millions of gems.

I almost hope they do a rollback and apologise. And I'm saying this as someone who currently has 200 gem bags.

The event was pretty okay other than the massive amounts of gems duped. Although, without all the duping I don't think the gems would have reached 3 cents for a bag.

I like the gems into boosters idea though.

Valve only made money off this whole thing, it costs them nothing to create gems and cards and they make a profit off every market transaction.
All the money everyone made came out of other steam users' pockets.

It's much worse than coal. If the night crew didn't catch the Market servers crashing every 5 seconds and this went into the morning, then cards and boosters would be completely worthless; as of now, they're just worthless.

So I bought 800 sacks back in the previous thread. It cost me $24.

I unpacked them all and then bought every booster possible. I spent about 50k gems which is about $1.50.

I have ~750k gems left now. I put up every booster for sale and got about 6 bucks.

So what now?

But that's literally the exact opposite of what happened, people learned how to make infinite gems out of nothing and people crafted and sold an insane amount of cards.

The amount of cards in the system only went up.

Nobody has lost their actual profit though, just gems that they were too late to turn into a profit.
If you made cards and sold them, it's yours.

The paranautical activity dev sperged out about a minor site layout error during the launch of his game, wherein his newly released game was still listed as early access. For an hour. For that minor mistake he threatened gaben (obviously in a joking way but still) and the game got pulled from steam, while the game's CARDS still remained. So naturally for about two hours the cards and the emoticons skyrocketed in price. I myself managed to scam about $25 out of that whole deal because my timing was right.

Because raffles are a racket. The more people involved in them, the less likely you can win. And since there's way too many people on steam, giving away 100 free games is like them granting a crumb from their table to the dirty mice starving to death in the corner.

Reddit tried to rig the scoring so that each team would win exactly twice. After the 5th day I think when everyone had won once, and red won again Valve changed the rules up and it went to hell and every colour for themselves.

backgrounds/emotes i crafted was bullshit that was listed on the market for months. spent $6 on gems and recouped that some foils. in the end i got a free $30, not bad. even bought a set of holiday cards for shits & giggles. got pic related. i image this is what the average valve employee looks like right now.

Daily reminder: Valve can't do shit if you just bought gems and made money using their own system. There is no way to tell if a gem was duped or not, and any ways of making money of it was actually Valve's lack of thought.

This is why this is the fucking stupidest shit ever. Valve needs to stop trying to be a funny epic social media site with events, it just needs to be a games distributor. I'm less and less interested in buying games on steam, and more and more annoyed by the bullshit, and the stupid layouts on the store and bloated nature of the in-game overlay every single god damned day.

Valve decided to give you a way to turn your unused Steam trading cards, backgrounds, etc into games by converting them into gems and either making new trading cards or bidding to try and get games every 45 minutes, starting at a certain point on the 15th.

Then some guy found a way to dupe these gems, shit infinite amounts, make trading cards, and flood the market with both cards and gems alike.

Now Valve deleted gems all together and we have no fucking idea what's going on.

It was awesome that people found a way to make a profit from out of the Gems.

Technically you can pay your bills with the money you're saving by not spending it on a game you get with steam money.

So it does pay your bills indirectly, same as coupons.

I often wonder how easy it is to make steambux profit if you know the market and tricks.

I guess the more money you have starting the more profit you can make with actual valuable items like dota or tf2 hats rather than little things like cards.

It seems like a lot of clicking for a few cents at a time though.

The marketplace was really good near the beginning, not many people using it, people knew values, and they were stable.

They opened it up, and the floodgates opened because every BR or ruskie that ever downloaded a game could undercut by 90% to sell instantly, but everyone would start using that price and it would just plummet, which is why cards for brand new $60 games are ~$.10, and online games where you pay $x per card are like $1.00~ per card.

That said, the limit to $400 for an item on the marketplace killed most big trade. Most people still use keys or paypal. Just sold a stattrak fade gut knife for 300 keys. and that was still a huge loss.

There was a link on one's badge page that led here.
http://steamcommunity.com/tradingcards/boostercreator/#214560

There would be a drop down with all eligible games you own. You click the game and it would tell you how many gems it would cost -- from like 400-1200 -- depending on how many cards are required for a badge in the set. The only caveat was that you could only make one booster pack for each game every 24 hours.

Part of the event was a thing that let you use gems to craft booster packs for all the games you own that support cards. Gem sacks which contained 1K gems each were going for 3 cents a piece so people were selling cards and shit they had in their inventory, buying up gems by the boatload, and then throwing all of those gems into boosters to then turn around and sell all the new cards or boosters for maximum profit. So far, I ended up turning 80 cents of loose change in my account into $4 with over 60 cards still to be sold.

People who bought from dupers in the market are probably safe since they had no say in where the items filling their buy order came from, but there is definitely a way for Valve to track all of that. It doesn't matter though, they deleted all the gems anyway just to be safe. Anyone else actually think that this event wasn't even meant to go up today?

I did it by mistake. I was turning all of my junk into gems as quickly as possible, and I noticed my gems were doubling every fifth or so time.

I didn't do anything with them, though, and valve took em all away thirty minutes later.

no it wasn't. You can't access the server right now. And if you can, it's probably a borked version of it with misalligned tables.

I've seen other people's inventories where my own should be more than once. Give it a couple hours and look again.

If they give gems back but for auction only, Shitstorm

I'm at a loss for what they can do that won't piss a bunch of people off without just turning everything back on and letting the jewstorm continue. The next day or two is going to be hilarious.

Totally 100% agreed, this kind of shit is very exclusive to most of the userbase and I just feel ripped off when I see scammers getting free games and shit even though I've been a paying customer for like 10 years now. Even fucking EA and Microsoft give out free games to their users regularly and GOG gives free shit every time they do a sale (keyword being shit, since they suck, but still). It's really making me dislike them. All I wanted was Half Life 3 and Left 4 Dead 3, but all we keep getting are cash shop Jewing, sales with barely worthwhile "discounts", and bloated pointless layout changes.

/v/ explain to me because I'm retarded.

I sold a card for .11 and then proceed to buy gems > craft boosters > sell cards > buy gems. I made $2-3 monies doing this. Since everyone was doing this, who was paying the difference?

I didn't know about the whole coal thing, I checked my inventory and I had something like negative 127 million coal for no fucking reason.
It went away on it's own when the sale ended

I'm looking forward to the massive amounts of false positives when it comes to punishing scammers. There will be wrongful bans, blatant scammers running around free while /v/ cheers them on, inventories being wiped, money not being refunded, and there will be much shitflinging. Merry Christmas from Valve Software.

I spent the first half of this year playing CSGO religiously for fucking weapon skins and crates. Ended up spending probably ~$50 on keys over the course of 5 or 6 months and ended up getting a handful of valuable weapon skins that totaled to about $125. Wasn't really worth it since I could've just used that money to buy other games, but the wallet funds I did use to buy games in the summer sale and whatnot, so it wasn't a total bust. Ultimately got burnt out on that game because I got to the higher tiers of competitive play and the hackers were driving me fucking insane. Then again, I guess putting over 400 hours into something over the course of a few months will do that.

people buying cards really. Think about it, before the event there was a pre-existing market for trading cards. some people legitimately wanted these cards. therefore the market AFTER the event started was being funded solely by card buyers, while the ones profiting are valve and card sellers. Make sense?

Volvo rolls in new toy money that can be crafted by "smelting" your other Steam items like backgrounds and cards. Said toy money can be used to bid on several games like an auction house and the highest bidder receives a game. Repeat every 45 mins. Said toy money can also be sold in the market.

People found a bug that enabled them to dupe infinite toy money. Volvo economy crashes and everything is FUCKED.

gabe creates event where you can turn cards and community shit into gems to bid on games, usually the top 100 bidders get the game

it gets exploited for thousands of gem sacks to flood the market at a lower price than the cards themselves

goys keep burning through cards while jews buy sacks to turn into booster packs, then unpacks the boosters to sell cards for a slight profit and to buy more gem sacks to rinse and repeat

event gets shut down and everyone loses their money and gems except the guys who took advantage of the goys, so the jews win
