The Great Gift Pile

We ran out of prizes and coupons from 3rd party publishers. The Great Gift Pile currently contains Valve games and coupons. Thanks to all for participating!

So only valve games and coupons remain?
I already have all valve games lol

Edit: Can we please craft coupons into games?
e.g. coupons that combine to 100% or 200% gift a free game

I've got
4x valve 50% off
2x valve 33% off
3x valve 25% off

They'll never be used, I already have all valve games.
All my friends already have valve coupons, so trading won't work.

Wow. I sincerely hope you're planning on actually warning users on the actual website instead of just a sticky thread on the forums?

I wasted my coal not knowing you guys ran out prior. Now I feel let down.

Wish I would've known this before I crafted! Not even a pop-up warning?! I want my coals back then! Or at least a Valve game instead of coupons!

PS Not everybody comes on SPUF you know.

Is the game drop rate 1%? Make it at least 2%!

Umm... would be great if next time (I hope there isn't a next time tough) such an announcement would not be delayed by 6+ hours. Hours in which countless people will craft their coal without even having a decent chance of not getting a Valve coupon.

I made my final crafts 6 hours ago and it's just annoying to know that they've been wasted.

Change the title to "We Ran out of 3rd Party Prizes!" In red font.

I didn't notice this thread until someone pointed it out.

I'd be happy with my coupons if I could stack them.

But giving the same coupon 3 times in a row is poor form.

I feel cheated.

Valve trolled and conned the crap out of us end of year 2011. Bet they made so much money out of this trades and objectives rubish. And people were fooled that it was random gifts when everything was calculated for profit's sake for valve using our wishlists, recommendations, friend's activities etc.

why? they did nothing that they did not state in all in rules of the contest.
maybe this specific announcement was a bit late, but conned? wha?

Valve, I don't mind the gift pile has a limit. However I hope communication is better for the next event. Not everyone uses the forum so getting the message to everyone should be a priority. Alas, I feel the forum is now going to be flooded with annoying threads. OMGZ I CRAFTED 100COAL AND GOT JUST VALVE STUFF.

Steam, or more like Valve = a complete joke!
Shame on you for bribing your own loyal customers.

I spent over 2 weeks, wasting my precious time in doing objectives, spent incredible sums of money on buying 'Great Gift Pile' games and other relevant games in hope of achieving something spectacular or something worth the sacrifice and all I have been getting in return is worthless bloody Coal + crappy duplicate Coupons. I'm done with this load of nonsense!

Time to get back to my University work, life is more important than wasting my hard-earned money and precious time with such greedy and money-oriented business' who give absolutely no priority nor have any concerns whatsoever over their loyal customers.
