Good. I hope 8000 more get nuked.

Although the vikki spotter games at least did some work with the series.

Quite a few fake apps (pretending to be other very popular games) in the removal list.

also dang it, I've been smeared by these app removals

I lost 20+ games, one of which was a win from here.

Edit: Game I won has now been added to the SG tool whitelist.

SGtools claims that I have three unactivated wins, all seem to be from this batch of removed stuff. Let's hope they get added to the list of false positives soon.
Thanks for the heads up, at least now if I can't join a giveaway I'll know why.

All non activacted win bans should really be put on hold for now.

Friday got added since this post was made. In your case you have https://store.steampowered.com/app/1015130/Wounded__The_Beginning/ but have not activated https://store.steampowered.com/app/1631290/Wounded/ which is a completely different game. Seems in your case that you didn't check the app ID when you marked it as received, and just saw the title looked similar.

Right now i can't check sgtools even. it's down, i had 20 games shown at the time of writing this 3 hours ago, i don't know if you only saw that, but thanks atelast for informing me about that, i contacted the gifter.

Often when i wake up i am still too sleepy too look closer, and i am like yeah fine, i'll mark it redeemed juist to get that flashy icon out of my way, i need my tea and coffee first and then i can be bothered. :P

Yes, at the time of my comment only that one was visible as not activated. No problem, happy to help. What I do is click the GA Steam link to check the IDs before marking received. I have won a few games where the name was different, so I always do that now.

Normally, i also always check the store page but even then minor things as a different with it, i probably wouldn't have noticed still anyway.

According to that website ormax3 showed, 679 games got banned from Steam in the last 24h though some are demo's but still, that is a lot!

Once a developer is found to have broken steam rules (review manipulation, etc.), all of the games listed under their account are banned with them, this explains the large number of "similar" asset-flip games in this ban wave.

If I had to guess, this is a response from valve to what was recently in the news about all those fake games of popular titles like Helldivers 2 etc.

lol Steam really needs to take a good look in the mirror and take stock of what they need to change.
People can now just create fake copycat pages with not a single review from Steam? Come on.

Those fake games were actually "repurposed" by these scammer devs from existing trash games in their catalogue.

For example, these games used to be called something else before their transformation:

Well I guess that was the next step after the asset flips at 156 bucks.
Like the knock-off Disney movies on dvd before the real thing lands in theatres...

Is there a way to see if I lost any games? I doubt I lost many, if any, because I have very few low quality games, but it would be nice to know.

Only if you knew your profile counter or library count from before. Otherwise only by looking for them manually. Either by madjoki's page (linked above), steam-tracker or SteamDB.

Ah never mind, not worth it. There was a website that did this a few years ago, but I think it's gone. I thought there was another tool that does the same thing now.

IsThereAnyDeal points out removed games when sync'ing, but that would require a very recent sync.. and I never verified if it does that correctly.

Checking the library totals will not work, the games didn't disappear from libraries.

Not regarding the banned ones, but apparently the few fake apps which started this were automatically refunded.

You don't lose access to games that are banned. They will just not appear anywhere on your profile any more, not on games count, perfect games numbers etc.

This thread came first. After seeing a couple of users with 20+ non activations today, I thought nudging knsys would be a good idea.

I agreed with not supporting crappy asset games and even to report them,
but about steam limited status at 0CV, that would involve that small indie gems,
that somewhat never quit this status because they are not very visible,
will suffer from this status too and get blocked to 0 CV...
that would be a pity because some some these are very good.
