Steam Summer Sale 2018

OK, I started getting Mysterious Card drops today so that means the Steam Summer Sale is right around the corner

Now if only there was a way to level it up to 100 instantly

Its weird. I got 6 random card drops just out of the blue. I only play games I've already played for hundreds of hours, I deserved none of them.

My girlfriend something similar, she got a whole bunch of cards at once which she should have gotten while playing and not a week later when logging in.

Gimbal, this happens when you have played a game where there wasn't any Trading Cards yet.

If the DEV adds them later on then the hours played counts towards the drops, hence why you have cards for those games/apps

This also has happened to me so when I checked the game and hours played I figured out why I got them.

Usually the DEV posts some news for the game/app that Trading Cards have been added.

That would explain mine, but not those of my girlfriend which were Terraria and Stardew Valley, games which have had cards for eons.

Yeah, I stopped mentioning them as they are just shovel ware merchants now with the odd 'full/over priced' title to make them look 'cool' and the current 'sale' is nothing to shout about.

Spot on.

I see it is already gone, not lasting sale...

I do have to share my positive experience with support, after they helped me with 2 games that were missing form gog connect list, and I had them in my inventory on steam.

Lots of good games on sale. Will have to limit myself though, not very flush this month.

Whats with this silly Saliens game, it looks like something made by preschool kids. Its just as shitty as that stupid sticker book crap a while back.

Remember to farm 6 cards every day boys, fastest way is to joing any sector and quickly reloading game three times, and viewing your discovery queue using Idle Daddy on Android
