Event ended.


[non-limited accounts only] (TL;DR: you spent at least $5 USD on Steam)

Click here for the broadcast. (If the link does not work or is offline, check the sale's page just below. If you see a stream then that's it, if you just see the sale page then the stream is currently offline.)
No point in sending !drop in the broadcast chat.


Like last year, you can get Steam items by watching the Wargaming Publisher Weekend 2024 broadcast.

The items will drop after roughly 10-15 minutes. The items are not tradable, not marketable.
Reminder to make sure you are logged in, works both in client and browser.

You can see what the items look like at the bottom (thanks timka4umka) or on Steam Card Exchange.

You can see more on MeguminShiro's Reddit post.

You can also get DLCs! Click here for the dedicated post.


FAQ:

  • I never spent money on Steam/spent less than $5 USD, will I get the drops?
    No, events tied to Steam broadcasts only work for non-limited accounts.
  • My account is non-limited because I spent $5+ USD on Steam, but I am market-restricted because I didn't buy games in over a year, will I get the drops?
    Yes, you will. (I confirmed it during Quakecon 2023).
  • Can I mute the stream and still get drops?
    Yes.
  • It's been a while and I still didn't get the drops, why?
    If your account is non-limited and you made sure you are logged in, try the usual troubleshooting steps: refresh the tab, use a different browser, clear cookies, etc.

Just usual delay I guess 😅 Or they forgot to turn it on.
Either way many people already posted the screenshot there, so no need for me to post this time.

Last time 🚂 caused a lot of issues, so I waited until getting the drops to post this time.
Didn't want to go through the same situation like last time 😱

Hey hey!
I kinda thought the same. 😅
Still now, some of my friends aren't getting the drops... I am this close to tell them to send !drop in the chat, lol.

Maybe tell them to unmute the stream (Somehow it works for some people) or refresh again to see if it drops or not.

Yeah, I noticed that for me the stream would get stuck at some point if it was muted and I'd have to keep on clicking on the "go live" button, but if it was unmuted it was playing fine.
They still didn't get the drops, so... Eh. I'll just give up, lol. I'll just tell them good luck. 😆

For those who don't have the items, try this:

  • if you looked it directly on Steam and have nothing after hours, look at the stream on the browser

I don't guarantee it will work but strangely for my boyfriend, it worked this way (he got the items immediatly in the browser)...

So maybe:

  • if you looked it on your browser and have nothing after hours, look at the stream directly on Steam

Check your market history for expired sale offers. You probably put it on sale 6 months ago, and it expired recently so it was added back to your inventory.

I didn't do anything with it 6 months ago (Was unable to) and so this is the first time I've even noticed Wargaming and I got that drop.

There must be at least one other person who got one somewhere?

Strange. Could you maybe check your inventory history?
The event is ending today anyway, just out of curiosity. It's alright if you can't be bothered to.

Also, you are the only one that reported that here on Steamgifts, and MeguminShiro said he didn't see anyone talk about it on Reddit. If anyone else did, they didn't talk about it. :shrug:

Thanks Franck, I didn't know that feature existed - handy to know!

Seems you are right, on the 3 Aug 2023 at 9:52 PM (My time) I got the Head on a swivel wallpaper (As well as a Straight as an Arrow wallpaper) and some other things like a frame from Wargaming.

Why the Head on a Swivel didn't appear in my new items inventory list until the recent batch is news to me. But I think we've at least cleared up that it wasn't associated with this event for now.

Thanks for the new information about inventory history! Hopefully I can pass it along when needed to others :)

Very nice then! You are welcome! :D
You can access your inventory history as well as your trade history from your inventory screen (buttons on the top right), and your market history in the marketplace.
So, mystery resolved... Sort of. 😆

I was momentarily confused, but I have that exact image....or well, two different ones with the same name.

The one you posted is NOT exactly the 2023 event one. That one is labeled for "Wargaming Anniversary Advertising App Rare Profile Background". It's right there on the page. 2023 event's version is labeled "Wargaming Pub Weekend 2023 Profile Background": https://steamcommunity.com/market/listings/753/2306810-Head%20on%20a%20swivel

Thanks Icepick, so I have a rare in name only. Still, it's a rare?!?

Judging the time on the background arriving I may have been sleepy and not given much thought to what I was doing. Odd that it seemed to only arrive with this recent stock in my new items notification, but I'm happy enough either way :)

Thanks for your due diligence in helping me out!

I have no idea why it only just showed up for you. At the time I got my stuff in real time, that was in August 2023, so that was not that long ago. I'd believe that was in reference to this: https://store.steampowered.com/publisher/wargaming/sale/wargaming25thanniversary
