If you ever get to this point, please do me, your bank account and your life a favour and stop.
Steam sales can get a bit out of hand, especially when people start going deep on trading cards and crafting. It’s always seemed a tad ridiculous to me, but the thought that I can get a few extra bucks in my Steam wallet by flogging off some digital card I don’t care about is a nice feature to have in your back pocket.
But then you have people like this user, who go way, way overboard. It’s a shot of the amount of card drops they’ve earned in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. You can earn a few cards by playing the game and some by trading, if you really want to go deep the easiest method is to spend cash.
Or you could spend lots of cash. Approximately $23568, according to the latest exchange rate.
I’ve heard plenty of stories of people going completely overboard in CS:GO. I’ve had one guy talk to me and contemplate how meaningless his life was because he’d just lost what was left of his inventory making stupid bets.
But the prospect of spending such an absurd amount of money on pointless, in-game crap is just staggering to me. Honestly, what are some people doing with their money?
