They probably wanted to encourage new users to try out Steam.

So for the grand prize drawings tomorrow do I just need to have coal and 10 items in my wishlist? Do I need to log into steam and click an icon to enter?

Omg so many people abused the system:(

Wow, kinda wish I hadn't seen that now frown.gif. Hopefully those account will be punished accordingly. Sucks that people who really tried to super hard for their achievements won't be as lucky.

I got garbage.
I got a boat load of coupons for games I already have or are already so cheap even without the sale that they're useless.
I crafted 7 coal by mistake, got 50% off for Painkiller. I have it already and it's only $10 to begin with which is well worth the buy to begin with.

And now that every achievement you get - you can only get a Valve game, Valve coupon, or coal: I consider everything I did to be a COLOSSAL waste of time.

I got jipped in other words, because I'd much rather have Valve games and coupons or coal rather than coupons for useless stuff like 50% off Nai'd. We should've waited till the last day and just did the achievements.

Valve had a pretty nifty idea, but failed in execution and ended up crucifying themselves with a ton of abusing people who now have practically every game for free.

I was just looking at a video on You Tube of HL Lost Coast and the person doing the commentating said it was free with people using an ATI or nVidea graphics card....

Of course, that video was Jan 6, 2010... lol

It was. Both nVidia and ATI had promotions where you could get it for free just for having one of their gfx cards. However, Lost Coast is only about 30 minutes long, and I'm pretty sure is a level in HL2.

I played it. It was nothing more than a show-off of the graphics engine used in Valve's newer games.
