            First, ARCANA is not a common or normal item in Dota 2. That's why it has the highest RARITY in the game!

            The common strategy for VALVE to make people buy Arcanas (especially Manifold Paradox) during this event is not by fixing any bug.
            If you focus and read the Dota 2 blog page, you can notice how they wrote on the blog:
            THE REWARD
            All players on a team that has been both victorious at the end of the match, and has successfully Fulfilled or Denied a contract will be rewarded with a trophy. Additionally, each Arcana owner in the match has a chance to trigger a cluster-drop of items for the winning team.
            I hope you understand the line I've highlighted for you. They told the players that if they want higher chance of item drops, then there must be more arcanas owner in the winning team for either successfully fulfilling/denying the contract.
            Link (referrence): http://postimg.org/image/jgjt7vcan/

            If this is the line of winning team in either successfully fulfilling/denying the contract:
            Player 1: Has arcana in inventory (triggering small chance)
            Player 2: No arcana in inventory (does not trigger)
            Player 3: No arcana in inventory (does not trigger)
            Player 4: No arcana in inventory (does not trigger)
            Player 5: No arcana in inventory (does not trigger)
            p/s: Right now, I am thinking if 1 player = 20% triggering of item drop. If more than 1 player, then it's called cluster-drop of item. 5 players with arcanas = 100% get the drop.

              And market is totally broken now
              Every item is worthless so Valve wont sold anything else from their store, cause community has lower prices.

              Valve need hint now ? Wipe and refund ^_^

                  I do, and I rather buy games off other sits, then buy the games thru steam. Because I do not want valve to get my money.

                  I will never spend any money on dota 2. Never!

                    Hello people! I would like to mention one thing about arcana and this event.
                    I am currently in LPQ and we can still play the event and receive items. I got more items in LPQ now than i have in the past half year outside of LPQ (by this i mean the rarity of items has gone drastically up).
                    This means that the only thing that separated LPQ and normal queue is gone.
