The giveaway is now over - we had 556 entries! Winners will be announced after New Years Eve! :) However the Drawing Competition sucked. Most of the people who participated sent us stupid images from Google therefor we won’t be picking any winners, sorry! You guys suck sometimes… Have a nice end of 2013! We’re thankful that you guys stayed with us for so long and participated in all of our games giveaways in December. Even though some idiots posted on our Steam group that the keys are either fake, used or stolen we don’t really care because they weren’t. We’ve moved the giveaways to Steam Gifts. However, the site seems to be dead for few days now which really isn’t helping. Thanks!!!
Just a quick reminder that our Christmas Lottery 2013 and Drawing Contest 2013 are ending in 2 days. Join them now to have a chance to win free Steam games!!! :) Also there are some stupid comments on our Steam group that our giveaways and keys are fake or used. Some people need to get a life. Seriously what the fuck? Someone suggested I start a Steam Gifts giveaway to make it more appealing so here it is: http://www.steamgifts.com/user/stranded Will add more as soon as I can so go ahead and join!

It all started in 2008. Valve introduced regional currencies in the Steam store, at first as a beta to join for volunteers only. Back then everyone thought that $1=1€ was just a simple mistake in the new script on the beta site, there were naturally a lot of posts concerning prices especially in the Euro zone. Hell, countries that didn’t even use Euro in the first place were forced to use Euro in the beta as well – it has stayed like this until now and it’s almost 2014. Some guys posted about 1:1 exchange ratio, I’m not sure if any mods or Valve employees posted replied back then but I suppose they haven’t.
After just few days Valve pushed the currency system in the Steam store on December 18th 2008. That was probably very surprising to a lot of gamers around the globe. As far as I remember there was rage and anger on the Steam forums. I’ve created the original post concerning the currency exchange rates. You can still discuss it here:

Long story short people discussed the prices in that topic. If anyone created any separate topic or even mentioned price differences in game sub-forums they were either removed, edited, locked or the users got banned (if they were aggressively reposting).
My posts were edited, removed, I’ve got temporary bans on forums for posting links or saying things they didn’t like. That’s understandable considering they are only running a business.
That’s why I’ve had enough of it.
Hey guys! We'll be celebrating our 5th anniversary in few days.
