I just checked my Steam badges page and found a new entry for a "Mysterious" badge. It doesn't seem to be related to a game in my library. Is this possibly for the upcoming summer sale? Does anyone else see this?

- 10 cards
- people suddenly getting "mystery" cards from crafting badges
- "mystery" badge
- it's June

Summer Sale it is. And I think it was JaseC who said the cards always start dropping about nine or ten days before the sale starts, so more evidence of the sale starting June 11.

Just crafted a badge and I got a Mystery 8 card.

EDIT: Actually, it's called Mysterious Card 7, but has the number 8 on it (lol). It also says it will be tradable after 6/8/2015 at 3 AM.

Pretty sure it's the steam sale badges like everyone else is thinking. It's rumored to be June 11th-20th

The whole being traceable on the 8th has to do with their new trading rules I think.

I miss the more involved game-specific stuff from a few years back, completing various objectives in different titles.
It was quite easy to cheat it though. People just used SAM to get achievements they would have taken them 2-3 hours or more to get.

Then in the wintersale somehow they also ran out of games from the publishers and could only use their own games to give away.

Any idea what's going to change yet then?
Nothing. When you purchase anything, it gets tainted as untradable for around a week, and anything you craft with such restriction inherits it. After the time passes, the taint goes off.

Why is the 11th a bad day to start?
The later it is, the more time people have to save their pennies. Also, July is tax time here and my refund would have added at least a grand to my budget. I suppose I can put that money towards a 980 Ti instead.

Ah, okay.

It makes sense, especially with E3 and the new AMD card shenanigans. happening around that time too.

The sooner the better for me. After 6 months of nothing I need the major TF2 update that typically comes with the summer sale so bad right now.
