The Steam Summer Sale Grand Prix game is confusing the hell out of everyone

Update (June 27): Valve acknowledged that the Steam Summer Sale Grand Prix game was overly complex in a blog post in which it apologized for the confusion and “the broken mechanics that have led to an unbalanced event.” It’s also made some changes to the rules meant to smooth things out for the remainder of the sale.

  • We’ve made improvements to the Driver’s Dash and Manual, to help clarify how to play.
  • We’ve made some back-end changes to help mitigate some of the snowball effects we’ve seen that have led to Team Corgi running away with the first two days of the races despite their tiny legs.
  • We’ve changed some code to help deal with the imbalanced team sizes across the board.
  • We’ve added a new random drop drivers can receive upon boosting called STEAL BOOSTS. If another team is way ahead, use this attack against them to help close the gap by stealing their boosts for your own team.

“We’re hoping some of these changes will help make the event more clear and enjoyable. We’ll keep an eye on things and continue to adjust the game as needed,” Valve wrote. “Our goal is to host a fun event where you get to explore and use Steam in new and interesting ways, but it’s clear that this time around we could’ve done better.”
