Welcome to the new Quality Games Giveaways (QGG) Group recruitment thread. The old thread can be found here

Group recruitment window is from the 1st to the 20th of each month.

Steam Group
SteamGifts Group

Top 10 GAs last month:
Ghost of a Tale
What Remains of Edith Finch
Pathfinder: Kingmaker
Life is Strange: Before the Storm
Yakuza 0 X 2
Sid Meier's Civilization VI - Digital Deluxe Edition
Project CARS 2 X 2
Everything
>observer_ X 11
Wizard of Legend X 3

To give you an indication of the quality of the giveaways in our group, here is a selection of some past giveaways: https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/jMqJT/quality-games-giveaways-qgg-group-popular-giveaways

A word of advice: This is not one of those groups where nobody really checks what you do, so you can do whatever and nobody will care. This group is more similar to "Actually Playing Games" or "Playing Appreciated" where there are strict rules, and everyone needs to follow them to the T. If you're more a free spirit, who just wants to give some games and win some games, and not to think about it too much - this is not the group for you!

A word of advice #2: If you're thinking of joining the group, and entering as many giveaways as possible until you're kicked from the group - please don't!
Many have tried. All have failed. Our group management tool allows me to see exactly which GAs each member joins, and as soon as I detect new members trying this, this person is kicked from the group and blacklisted by all members.

How to join:

  1. Read all the group rules (especially the "new members rules"), understand them (if anything is unclear - ask me), and be willing to follow them.
  2. See that you comply with all the general rules. if you don't, I won't add you to the group, so there's no point applying.
  3. Leave a message in this thread with the name of the game you're planning for your "new member first giveaway".
  4. One of us (Mdk25 or AZzoCat) will add you as a friend on Steam (so we can communicate with you)
  5. One of us will invite you to the group

GENERAL RULES

• At least Level 3 on SteamGifts
• If you're new to SteamGifts, you need to be a member for at least 3 months, and be a member of at least one other closed group (a group where you need approval to join)
• For users below level 5: User must have a positive Real CV ratio (Check ratio here) OR Positive SteamGifts won/sent ratio
• Clean slate at SteamRep (https://steamrep.com)
• Steam profile has to be public
• Multiple or unredeemed wins within the last year - are forbidden.
• You must try to keep a positive group ratio
• Do not blacklist other members
• Be nice and civil to other members (for instance, if you win, please say thanks to the poster)

GIVEAWAY RULES

We only want quality games in this group, so members need to abide by certain rules when creating giveaways.
• Each giveaway must have 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 60%+ Steam rating OR 100+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating. Games with 10,000+ reviews on Steam are allowed regardless of their steam rating.
• Shared giveaways are allowed (except for monthly, and free games). But need to abide by our quality giveaways rules (steam rating, etc.)
• Optional: If a giveaway is QGG-only, the gifter/creator is allowed to require the winner to play/finish the game within a set amount of time. Applies to "new member" giveaways too.

MONTHLY GIVEAWAY

• Each member will create at least one group-exclusive giveaway every month.
• Monthly Giveaway should finish by the 25th of each month.
• Monthly Giveaway should last at least 3 days
• Monthly Giveaway cannot be region locked
• Monthly Giveaway must have at least 10P value, and one of the following:

  • 10,000+ reviews on Steam and 70%+ Steam rating
  • 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating
  • 100+ reviews on Steam and 90%+ Steam rating

SKIPPING A MONTH

• The ability to "skip a month" was added so people can be able to take a break from SteamGifts when they need to, and not worry about being kicked out because of it. It is NOT a tool to pick and choose which GAs you want or don't want to enter.
• Each member is allowed to "skip a month" (not create any group GAs, including a monthly GA) by simply abiding by the rules. No need to notify anyone about it.
• When skipping a month, you cannot enter any group GAs (i.e. any GA that QGG is in the list of groups).
• You cannot "skip a month" on your first month of joining (i.e. not create your "new member" GA).

NEW MEMBERS

Please read these rules carefully, and only apply if you're sure you can follow them.
• New members need to create a giveaway in 48h upon receiving an invite to the group
• New members first giveaway must be a QGG group-exclusive giveaway
• New members first giveaway must last at least 7 days
• New members CANNOT enter any group giveaways until their first giveaway is finished. (Finished = marked as received by the winner)
• New members first giveaway must have at least 18 entries when it's finished. Begging for entries is forbidden.
• New members first giveaway counts as the monthly giveaway of the month he joined
• New members first giveaway cannot be region locked
• New members first giveaway must have at least 10P value, and one of the following:

  • 10,000+ reviews on Steam and 70%+ Steam rating
  • 1,000+ reviews on Steam and 80%+ Steam rating
  • 100+ reviews on Steam and 90%+ Steam rating

(I recommend searching for the game in the group giveaways, and checking how many entries it got last time this game was given away in a group-only giveaway, to prevent the situation where your first giveaway doesn't get enough entries, and you're forced to create a new one to replace it and wait another week)

RETURNING USERS

Users who left the group (or were removed without being banned) and were members for at least 1 month (did not leave on the month they joined), can return to the group, by abiding by the following rules:
• Returning user needs to create a "new member giveaway" on the month of his return. Which needs to comply with all NEW MEMBER rules described above, except the "New members CANNOT enter any group giveaways until their first giveaway is finished" rule.
• Upon re-entering the group, the user needs to verify his group ratio (value-wise and amount-vise) is positive. If his group ratio is negative, he needs to immediately create the GAs needed to rectify the situation.
• User wanting to return to the group needs to leave a message here in the recruitment thread.

For full list of rules, see our group rules page

Rules still unclear? Check here

Management of this gourp is done using the SGMT tool. All checks and verifications (new user, monthly, GA quality, etc.) are fully automatic.

The best balanced group in terms of quality of giveaways and member dues - in case you dont have so much money to spend on sg gifts, as to become member of one of the unbundled/AAA groups, and you are still commited to making one high quality GA each month, I would recommend you to join QGG

Your first giveaway need to get at least 17 entries. Last time (2 month ago) nobody in the group entered No Time To Explain Remastered.

PS I don't know answer for your question, I just checked how popular was no time to explain. :)

Hello thickdog,
Unfortunately you do not qualify according to the following rules:

  1. Won more than Sent (Real CV value).
    Real CV Won: http://www.sgtools.info/won/thickdog
    Real CV Sent: http://www.sgtools.info/sent/thickdog
  2. Won more than sent in SteamGifts:
    Won: 13
    Sent: 9
  3. User level is less than 3

If you do decide to apply again in the future - I encourage you to read group rules before applying.

Thanks,
Mdk

I'd like to join the crew with one of these:
Just Cause 3 XXL Edition (new to the monthly bundle = ??? entries)
Garry's Mod (0 GA = ??? entries)

I'll probably only give bundled game, as you can see. And let me know if you think other games should be envisaged to reach 17 entries.

I think that Just Cause have big chances to get those 17 entries. Main games from hbm have mostly nice anmount of entries, for example:
Cities: Skylines 18 entries
Hollow Knight 23 entries
Conan Exiles 18 enties
Just Cause 3 is also on wishlist of 23 members and was popular before being in hbm. Of course, even if taking all of it into the account, you can't be sure it will get those 17 entries, but as I said, I think it would get enough entries.

Hi Zorskan,
Just Cause 3 XXL is good enough. Last time it was given away it got 30 entries, so should be no problem.

I can provide Just Cause 3 XXL Edition and Hollow Knight this month.

Both games seem suitable.
Hollow Knight is slightly more wishlisted, so I think you have a better chance with it.
But it's your call.

Hi, I appreciate your interest in our group, however we have the following rule:

However, we are here for the long run.
So in 2-3 months, you're welcome to come back and re-apply.

Hey! Interested in joining.
Haven't got any groups on SG so far. Used the website long time ago, but not in a "hardcore" way. Just doing things here and there.
Got back about a week ago. Can do an Undertale or Papers, Please! giveaway as soon as I join!
Thanks!

Hello FifflarenVintage,
According to your GA history, it seems you only made very little GAs, and of very cheap bundled games.
As you know our group has a monthly mandatory GA policy.
Do you think you would be able to create giveaways according to group rules & policy?

Hello !

I read the all the rules, subscribed to two of the topic on Steam (the announcement and the one about bundles), I am not level 5 (not yet, working on it ^^ !) but I suppose that $244 sent for $88 won works, at least that's how I understood the rule.

The only thing I don't get is this : "You must try to keep a positive group ratio."
if it's sharing games with the group at least once a month following the rules, I'm down with it, I already do so with Playing Appreciated, I do like the group system as I believe it gives more opportunities to people to get what they really want.

Tell me if I'm good enough for you (I hope ^^ !) and I'll happily join you if everything is ok for you :) !

PS: I sent you a friend invite Mdk25 ♥ !

Hello Ylthin,
The subscribing to group updates rule is actually for members of the group, not candidates.
Rules for candidates are actually written here, and unfortunately you seem to have missed a few.

  1. "At least Level 3 on SteamGifts"
    So this is the first rule in our general rules, unfortunately as you know you don't qualify according to this rule.
    But it shouldn't be too hard to fix, if you're dedicated to it.
    Let's just say members of our group don't remain lvl 3 for long...
  2. "Leave a message in this thread with the name of the game you're planning for your "new member first giveaway"."
    This is the 3rd point of the "How to join" list.
    This is also something missing from your message.
  3. "Each member will create at least one group-exclusive giveaway every month."
    Not something you missed, but something to keep in mind.
    From your giveaway history I see you mostly give away free or $1 bundle keys.
    This will not work in our group.
    Each member needs to create at least one giveaway each month, and while bundled games are allowed, you will soon find out that most games you've given away so far are either against group rules (or at least the monthly giveaway rules) or simply won't get any entries, as everyone already has them.

I'm not trying to discourage you from applying, but these are my concerns about you and you will need to address them before we can move forward with your candidacy.

P.S.
Regarding your question, by "group ratio" we mean what is written under "Gift Difference" and "Value Difference" here.

Oh for my level I thought that this would apply:

• For users below level 5: User must have a positive Real CV ratio (Check ratio here) OR Positive SteamGifts won/sent ratio
For which I do apply without any problem thanks to my abysmal luck (I'm really good at having bad luck, 83% chances ratio yesterday and 0 well, c'est la vie.. Technically we're still yesterday in NA though ^^")

• "Leave a message in this thread with the name of the game you're planning for your "new member first giveaway"."
For the game I forgot to ask your help actually, I have the Humble Paradox Bundle 2019, I noticed that you were the one posting in the bundle post of the Steam group and thought it was smarter to ask you which one(s) fit beside Crusader Kings II and its DLC as it was the game I really wanted. As it was written that no mistake would be allowed I got a little afraid to try to pick myself which one(s) would fit.

• "Each member will create at least one group-exclusive giveaway every month."
Yes, I know about that, I do give both actually, but now you're scaring me some more hahaha ^^"

  1. The "below level 5" rule applies to you, but so does the "At least Level 3" rule.
    Otherwise, why would we even have the "At least Level 3" rule if it never applied?

  2. You'll have to at least write a list of games in that bundle. I don't remember it by heart.
    Also, I can't guarantee any of them will be of good enough quality for the "new member first giveaway".

  3. This is a very important rule.
    Not just a monthly GA which needs to be by monthly standards (which are higher than regular group standards), but it also needs to get entires in the group.
    I'm not sure if any of the games you've given away on SteamGifts until today, would qualify as a monthly GA.
