Steam’s Summer Sale was a bit confusing thanks to its Grand Prix event, a convoluted team-based “race” where users would pool together and try to beat rivals.
The rules were not clear, and as well as everyone boosting Team Corgi ahead, they started deleting games from their wishlists.
Because Grand Prix participants could be awarded free games from their wishlists, it was believed the prize pool could be streamlined by pruning said lists. This is not the case, but a number of games saw themselves deleted from wishlists in large numbers.
While Valve has now clarified, the damage is done, as indies find yet another reason to be concerned about Steam.
