How to get around the whole "free accounts cant trade" thingy for extra drops

#1l33t_ninj4_1337Posted 7/5/2011 9:27:21 AM
1. Have a premium account
2. Make a free account
3. Give everything in your premium account to the free one
4. Continue to idle on premium account and trading it all over to the free one
5. Free account becomes main account with double drop potential

Of course, valve would probably notice and get pissed :/
I have claimed Sveta as mine, because she is powerful and attractive.

whats the point if you have the premium and play on the free???
I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.

Everyone is trying to find a loophole for this.... what a colossal waste of time :I

If you REALLY want the extra accounts, you make a bunch, then put $5 in each one... buy the cheapest item in the mann co store...if that makes your steam account able to gift games to others, then you can buy a game you want with the remaining money and gift it to your main account....if not, find a cheap ass game (especially during this sale) and then buy that, and THEN you can use the remaining amount of money to gift a game to your main account... OR

Buy keys, wait for them to become tradable, use a program like sandboxie or whatever to trade to your main account, then trade those keys for metal....

You're STILL going to have to spend money if you want a full 2nd idling account.. $5 is pretty cheap though for someone who is hat greedy.

Why does no one do this. Put $5 on the idle account buy 2 keys trade them to your main and now you have 2 keys and an idle account.
Hope is the worst of evils for it prolongs the torment of man.

Free Accounts don't get drops though so there is no double drop essentially paid to have a free account and now all your items are stuck there.
