30 million users and they're giving away ~150 steam decks. do you feel lucky
To manually enter the Giveaway, .. print name, address, city, state, country, postal code, email address, Steam account name (account can be limited or unlimited), and telephone number, as well as the name and date of the Giveaway that the entry is for (“The Game Awards 2022 Giveaway”), on a self-addressed 4"x6" note card and mail the completed form to: Valve Corporation, P.O. Box 1688, Bellevue, WA 98009-1688.What's a limited or unlimited account? I know what I won't be doing for 2½ hours
Edit: Can I substitute my winnings for a toaster oven.
Presumably means no VAC ban on the account, and has at least $5 spent on it to be a what we could call a non-trial version of Steam. Which means I'm fucked since I have a VAC ban on my account (thanks Bungie for sabotaging my Steam account due to bad ram triggering their anti-cheat garbage).
Also, afaik EU in their case is still selective, since not all European countries can buy the Deck directly... I've heard from a few people here on Iceland who had to jump through some bullshit hoops to get one, like getting people (random/friend/family) in EU countries to buy it themselves on their own accounts & then ship to them, and those buyers had to pay out of their own pockets even -> couldn't use proxy payments via PayPal or similar.
