Actually you are right, they SHOULD take a hint. They should run awesome summer sales RIGHT NOW THIS WEEK before valve starts theirs. That way they can take advantage of people who are wanting to jump on steam sales. Some might even buy stuff on origin instead of steam if the price is low enough.
But EA is just too slow to react and their idea of a good sale is something stupid like 30%.
