It will go down as the "Great http 500 fest" for me.
Store via browser is completely broken.
Via client it was not possible to install and play a game from the suggestions.
only things for me working currently is account/license and account/registerkey (but I didn't stress it)
Yes I do know it sounds like a joke, but is there anyway to let them (steam) know that this event was not only broken but broke also the store.
It is working fine here outside of a couple of the tasks not unlocking for a few hours after they should have.
how do I do the task of playing the First Account Game without downloading ?
the first game on my account is ARK: Survival Of The Fittest
Download this app, then open it while Steam is running
choose the game then press commit changes, done!
Everything worked fine, thank you.

Can this ban the account?
I used SAM years ago on VAC protected game and no ban (and countless other games later). I've never heard of anyone getting banned because of SAM or similar program. Best would be to do your own research just google it.
Not that running SAM's seems like a good thing to do unless an achievement is broken otherwise, but if you're gonna do so, just don't run it while also actually having a VAC protected game open. That is how you would receive a ban for using a SAM.
I don't know how these things work so I'll just share my experience. I used SAM on L4D2 to get one achievement, no ban. I let IdleMaster get me cards from CS:GO and no ban either. You may be right, it might be possible to get banned but I wouldn't know.
I had never used these programs so I was afraid
Idle Daddy on android works really good for this. Download the app, go to games and find the game you want to start.
worst event ever, so buggy
What are the 5 trophies? I see 3 medals and 1 badge that can be levelled to level 3?
The trophies is the 5 "permanent" challenges at the bottom, I think.
This event works fine for me. I love these stupid Steam events and Gaben is still the king. :p
Same here, and I'm hoping they have another big one like the Saliens event for the summer sale.
Yesterday I had day2 activated on all 3.
Today I have day 3, day 1, day 1.
bye badge I guess :D
I missed the tasks from day 1 so i'm unable to get max level badge :( sad life
Steam event badge completion requires a combination of diligence and dumb luck. Don't worry, the summer sale event cannot be far off. :)
I did not miss it, it just didnt wanted to count 2/3 for first day, steam didnt want to count time played for SPIN CYCLE and CLEAR THE BACKLOG for me, tried every game,..
You are not alone :)
Does anyone else have a problem with getting the games for the last day?
Yeah, it is the best to wait a few hours til it is fixed again
Oh good, it isn't just me.
Yep, none of tasks is working for me
At first I thought maybe it wants me to try new games, which I did, and it's still not counting >_>. Except I've done the same game on multiple days before, and those counted...
Still not working for me. Guess we'll wait.
Valve, is it too much asked for you to make your crap to work?
It should be set to PDT but it seems to be set an refresh an hour after it should.
Shouldn't it have been up over an hour ago?
Ya I add my time wrong, yesterday it was two hours after 10am PDT it refreshed.
It wasn't that late for me, judging by my ASF history I did mine at 10:40 am PDT yesterday.
Only other thing it could be is the number of people trying to access the severs right now.
Broken yet again.
sad thing is not that it is broken, sad thing is that nobody is suprised about it...
wait a little, they are still implementing bugs
Valve and Bethesda should merge.
wake me up when they fix this day :/
10PM here. Still doesn't work. At this rate I won't be able to complete the task...
How thoughtful of Valve to schedule this spring cleaning to fall on Memorial Day Monday, and not have anyone in the office to fix the event... when it's already been bugged before.
I'll have to get up in 7h, so I'm off to sleep now. When I get back from work it will be ~16:30 CEST... at best.
Only for Speed Clean.
(ヽ´Θ`)-3 It is a bad day...
Speed Clean is working on my end. Others will work in a few more minutes when the games cycle again. Same thing happened Day 2.
~EDIT~ It's working.
Not for me :(
Completed all Spring Cleaning tasks! Now I can go outside and play!
oh, I was sure that completing all 17 would have removed that poster from the wall and uncovered something special :'(
I know, right? Ah, well. Steam still misses out on good opportunities to amuse us. I suppose the extra tasks were to make it easier for latecomers to still get level 2 badge.
Level 3 Badge
What does '2 Rares' mean? I don't think I received anything in inventory.
2 rares means 2 rare items in inventory. (I got the "clean garage" background and a seal emote)
A smiley and a background, i.e. https://steamcommunity.com/market/listings/753/1083560-%3Acleanseal%3A and https://steamcommunity.com/market/listings/753/1083560-A%20Clean%20Garage :)
I guess I got the seal and the clean garage... but I remember getting those while I was on 15/17 tasks...
I did 15 task,
I will receive something special to make the others two task?
I didn't receive anything else
Pretty sure I didn't either. I got 2 items while 15/17 tasks were complete though...
Wow, that was kind of embarrassingly poorly handled :P There was something odd about how it handled repeats. Like what are the odds that someone with 4k games in their library ends up with an almost identical 4 games on "Spin cycles" on day 2 & 4. Only one game differed, and it was a game I had on day 3. Same holds true for "clear the backlog", I'm currently looking at the games I had day 1, with only one difference.
My "Clear The Backlog" changed daily (though it did list a few repeats each time), but I don't believe my "Spin Cycle" changed at all, after the first day. It's still showing the same games today, as it was Day 1. It's also unusual in that it only ever listed 4 games, while the others have 5+"View All".
Then there's the glitch regarding it recognizing Spin Cycle and CtBacklog completion on the second day, and the fact that it should have been 18/15 if they wanted to create a buffer (17/15 seems to serve no constructive benefit whatsoever), and the generally poor conception of categories in relating them to actually stimulating non-simulated play, and..
Anyway, so yeah:
that was kind of embarrassingly poorly handled :P
that was kind of embarrassingly poorly handled :P
But, cha'know, it is a Steam event. I go into them expecting them to be underwhelmingly handled. I'm just appreciative enough of the fact that there weren't client bugs this time, like there was Winter Sale 2015, with its mixed up account displays, or whichever Halloween Sale it was after that, where the client had various (messenger and client crashing / black screen) bugs introduced.
Spin cycle absolutely changed for me. I had both day 3 and 4 open in different windows when the event finally updated today, with only one game being the same between day 3 & 4. Incidentally it was the game I started on day 3!
Oh yeah, it could have been worse! This time they just showed that whoever worked on this event don't know how to even do a simple randomization properly, you know, one of the very first things anyone learning programming will learn how to do. They did at least not try to touch anything that could break something else.
such hard work, i can barely move my hands now, damn you valve, don't make things so complex 🙄
damn ugly ass badge just popped up on my profile ugh -_-'
What? Something like that:
yep, both are very disappointing to look at.
If you care about how badges you craft or get look, it worth checking them out prior to that on https://www.steamcardexchange.net/ (in Showcase)
thanks, I know about that site. Playing DbD all weekend seemed to be enough though to earn me the badge, without wanting or trying.
Ah, yes, free weekend games, that's unfortunate.
None of mine are working today still. Fun...
Edit: Finally credited.
For anyone curious, these are the item rewards if you did every task.
Can't convert them into gems but can sell them on the market.
Would have been more useful to give people the possibility to turn them into gems too. What's the point of selling them for 2-3 cents each? It's not even worth the time to list them on the market.
Gotta admit though, the seal is kinda cute. :3
Even if you put it on the market, it will not be sold anyway (depends on your country) - through different currencies and their conversion is the order completely broken, with such merged items.
Example: There are 10.000 items for the price of 0.03 € - you add yours and the logic would say your item is rank 10.001
If 1000 items were sold per day - you should get rid of yours in ~10 days ....nope, that's not how it works^^
any item which get put on the market in a currency below the value of the euro will be listed before yours
which causes your item to slide further backwards or not move at all - After just under 6 months, the transaction will expire
and the item will end up in your inventory again ....you put it back on the market and it will be even further back in the postion
I don't think listing expires - at least some of my items have been listed there since forever.
I cant tell you exactly which item types expire and which not
merged items like tf2 crates, csgo cases/sticker etc expire
"normal" items that are listed individually (weapon skins for example), probably not
Cards, backgrounds, and emoticons don't expire. I've got some that have been listed for over a year at this point.
But your point is definitely valid. I've had some junk items from the Winter Sale listed at $0.03 for 5+ months now and they still haven't sold.
I spent the whole Sunday with my family, eating dinner and watching movies, while completely forgot about the Steam Spring event! Now I'll never get the gold badge, feels bad man!
I missed day two A) because of the glitch and B) because I forgot to go back and see if it wasn't glitching again.
You win some, you lose some.
