So what the fuck is up with this shit?
Every day some apperantly random teams wins this shit by having double if not triple the amount of points as the 2nd place.
I heard that it's rigged and a ton of rich fucks get all the tokens for stealing points and switching teams, but I don't quite see the point in that since it will surely require a lot more money than those 3 games you have no chance of winning anyways.
Yet something is up with it.
wouldn't surprise me if it was just steam making sure every team wins at least once so no one feels left out.
can't have anyone's feelings be getting hurt now, or else they might stop spending their money
It's a pretty bullshit contest to begin with anyways, it's not about playing games or having games, just spending money on fucking cards.
Even if your team wins, 30 people out of probably millions get 3 games that are most likely on sale anyways, so like 10 bucks.
The chances are barely 1 in a million.
Even if your team wins it every day you still won't win those games.
In other words, the odds to win something are so amazingly small, that any effort in trying to make your team win seems a waste.
0.001% chance to roll trips on /b/, but lookie here:
A team will win anyway, people will craft anyway, why not instruct them to wait with crafting?
It won't cost them any more effort to wait.
and was one of those people you?
plus, it's not random who wins the games, it's based on contribution. so unless you are willing to spend the money to craft a fuck ton of badges, you won't get shit.
Odds are that you never rolled trips anyways , sure someone will have to get those trips, but it won't be you.
And I have no idea what the chance is to get trips, but considering you can 10 times every 1000, i'm sure those odds are a lot better.
It's just pointless to try to influence something that's so amazingly insignificant, but then again, if it's reddits doing, i'm not surprised that this is the result of those 2 braincells at work.
>Each day the team with the most points wins. 30 members of that team who contributed points that day will win the top 3 games off their Wishlist.
I thought so aswell, but you just have to contribute something apperantly,, even 10 points should do according to this.
I'm sure there are a ton of people who buy all these cards to contribute the most.
>so unless you are willing to spend the money to craft a fuck ton of badges, you won't get shit.
You contribute points on the day that your team wins: you get a chance at free games.
The most you will need to spend to get points is about 20 cents which you can get if you have any trading cards.
>Odds are that you never rolled trips anyways
I have gotten trips multiple times.
Chance to get trips = 1/901.
>65 million registered users
if we take a rough guess and say even 25% of these accounts are active, split into 4 teams
>4 mil people per team
>.00075% of winning games
>chance of being killed by a shark .00165%
so you are twice as likely to get eaten by a shark than you are to win a game from steam.
Thanks /b/ro, that's what im saying.
So why the actual fuck would you spend time and effort in order to make sure that everyone gets .00075% ( I will just take your word for it ) chance of winning about 15 dollar in games, by spending a fuckton more money on creating that chance?
You only get put in the running if you contribute at least a point. So the max would be a million for the latest pink victory, but it's most likely less since you can contribute more than one point and some badges can get you 10 or even 100 points. I'd be surprised if more than 500k people contributed to any victory so far.
