Renathy Posted June 21, 2014 Share Posted June 21, 2014 (edited) The Steam Summer Sale is a massive list of discounts on almost every game available on the Steam platform. - A year ago, Valve, the developer of Steam, has implemented Trading Cards. These Trading Cards could be obtained by playing certain games, and with the right amount of a set of cards from a specific game you could craft profile badges, profile backgrounds, and chat emoticons. When the Steam Summer Sale started Valve added Summer specific Trading Cards, which could be obtained by spending a certain quantity of money on games; or the Steam Market; or even by voting on game deals. These new Trading Cards would grant you exclusive items for some free-to-play titles, apart from some new badges, backgrounds and emoticons. Warframe was one of them, and as many of you already know, the Phased skins were released. By now the Phased skin prices have lowered significantly, but there is just one problem: Each item from the Steam Summer Sale had a different quality, going from Common to Precious. An item of a higher quality meant a lower drop chance, which in turn would raise the item's price on the Market. Currently, the highest priced item is the Phased Tigris skin, going up to around 35€, but that's just from the Phased skin list. The new skins are the Rubedo skins, and since they're relatively new, the highest price goes to the Rubedo Viper skin, which goes as high as about 170€. Of course the price is certain to lower given the time, but sadly, it's still going to be quite expensive, much like the Phased Tigris skin. I wanted to suggest a different way of obtaining these skins, given that many players do not own a Steam account, or they do not enjoy Steam, and the item prices are based on the community, which will always be an atrocious system. I'm not demanding these skins, as I already have the Phased skins that I wanted, and I'm not far from obtaining the new Rubedo Plated skins. Steam is not an obligatory platform needed to play Warframe, and these skins should be made available in the game one way or another.
