  • Please Include some way of knowing that the egg is unusual through trade!

    Come on! There is no way of knowing an unusual egg in an inventory. It only states the egg's name....

    I just got scammed by this guy:

    |steamID: Christopher Nolan
    |steamID32: STEAM_0:1:35255544
    |steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198030776817
    |customURL:
    |steamrepURL: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198030776817

    For trading my Baby Rosh for what he assured me was a Merciless Egg with 3 Unusual Essences attached.

    Actually there is a visual indicator, if it has been infused with Unusual Essences then it would have had glowing white ring around it. If there are 3 unusual essences then there should be 3 glowing rings around it. But I think there is a bug where the egg glitches after you trade it, but I believe they fixed that already.

        Ah yes I see the issue now, the indicator is only seen from Dota inventory in game and not in Steam, that is unfortunate. I agree then that there needs to be a visual indicator or at least written text to identify that it is infused with an unusual essence.

          Not only that, but the AMOUNT of unusual essences applied. This is a serious issue and I'm sure quite a bit of people have been scammed with this.

            Tell valve, they might consider it enough of a bug to undo the trade. Only a slight chance, but might as well try

              Thanks for your concern. I have sent a ticket to steam support and am awaiting their response. I have also filed charges for scamming to the guy, so I'm trying every avenue available to me to bring down this guy as well as redeem the trade.

                Update: I have also sent multiple friend requests to the person concerned, and he has denied all of them, which makes it highly likely that he knows of this exploit and it is not a bug with the egg. Valve, please reply before Diretide is up, as this issue only gets harder after it.

                  I also got scammed in similar way. Though the user and his alternate accounts has been marked on SR http://dota2traders.com/threads/7656...9-zhatu.21441/ , I am still waiting to hear from Steam Support, so that I can at least get my keys back, because we are not at fault here, as you can't see whether the egg has unusual essence in it or not in trade window. Lets hope they reverse the trade quickly enough and ban people like this, who are so sick that they get kick out of scamming people :S

                    We have no hope of doing this. Because Valve is just going to wait until Diretide is over so that the problem goes away. Hopefully they do better in the future though. If not, I just might be tempted to do the same to others, as there is no retribution for this, obviously.

                      we should get togheter and sew valve.

                      they state we're responsible for trading, ensuring that the items we're receiving are correct and even say "Mouse over every item to ensure that the item/gift's properties are correct. Information about the item/gift will be stated here including the quality, name, description and any effects."

                      but when we CANT see the info... whose responsibility is that? I lost so much on that scam.. been really tempted to do the same to someone else and make up for my loss.
