    Valve being sued over gambling in cs:go community

    http://www.polygon.com/2016/6/23/120...on-skins-valve

    Apparently Valve/3rd party affiliated sites have been allowing illegal gambling through cs:go and probably DotA and TF2 as well, sell your expensive shit now or forever lose your monies so far invested.

    It was bound to happen eventually, it's just stupid that it's happening because some faggot couldn't handle losing his items.

    McLeod says he purchased skins from Valve, gambled them — both as a minor and later as an adult — and lost money.

    He's got a pretty strong case. I hope the Feds shut Valve down.

    Valve has also been complicit in abusive child labor (see, Arteezy, Zai, Sumail)

    Welcome to the Theocratic States of America where most of our laws are devoid of logic and reflect the irrational desires of the church.

    Is it really true that there's a Valve-run "liquid market to convert back to cash?" It was my understanding that because Valve only converts to Steambux (USD value but can only be used in Steam store or for buying other Steam Market items) this didn't apply.

    this is why the suit will probably fail. valve refuses to help anyone liquidate their inventories as far as I know, you can only do it with 3rd party sites like OPSkins or whatever

    reading the actual lawsuit docs polygon posted is pretty hilarious tho

    In sum, Valve owns the league, sells the casino chips, and receives a piece of the
    casino’s income stream through foreign websites in order to maintain the charade that Valve is
    not promoting and profiting from online gambling, like a modern-day Captain Renault from Casablanca

    yeah the argument is they facilitate it through letting the sites use steam authentication and knowingly facilitated all the skin purchases

    some prime not a lawyer shit so who knows but it seems dumb

    Doesn't any site that tries to link with steam have to use steam authentication? I'm also pretty positive they've shut down a lot of those sites, and gives people warnings whenever they log into steam on another site.

    I mean unless the dude has proof that valve just secretly owns or profits off of opskins/other sites, it won't do anything. Pretty sure valve wouldn't just let themselves get fucked like that rofl
