Bought an extra copy of CSGO for $3.74 Steam Wallet for a spare account to solo queue so I don't **** up my main accounts matchmaking elo. I idled with the account during today's Dreamhack Tournament Finals. Got "DreamHack 2013 Souvenir Package" case. Sold it on the Steam Market for $9. Got paid to buy CSGO.

TL:DR Paid $3.74 for CSGO; got paid $4.

But you didnt get paid for buying CSGO. You got something for free while playing and sold it for money,

Everyone is such a downer in PCH.

Someone goes "hey I got something for free"

PCH: "no you didn't" "insert explanation here".

Similar thing happened with me a while back. Found one of those boxes with the gun skins and figured "what the hell, I'll buy a key."

Got a Stattrak M4A1-S and sold it for 18 dollars. It paid for CSGO when I bought it on release for 13 dollars and it paid for the key with 3 dollars left over for another key. Opened another box and sold some P90 skin for 6 bucks.

Lucky me.

You guys should see the dota market. I bought a hoodie that came with a digital unlock. Hoodie cost about 43 dollars. Sold the item for 35 keys. (Approx $70) Used them to get CoD Ghosts (Lol) and trade for other dota items.

TF2 sometimes too. Balloonicorn for example. The real plushie got sold out so quickly which also included a digital code. For a while there the Genuine Balloonicorn ingame item was around 2 buds which is around 36 TF2 keys. It wasn't long since it dropped in price though once stock came back up for the plushie; more digital unlocks became available.

Friend of mine paid 50 cents to go premium in TF2. Couple of days later he found a Salvaged crate and traded it for both Arkham Asylum and City GOTY.

And people ask why PC gamers love Valve so much.
