Popular gamers 'should play for free' – Valve boss


not a bad outline proposal from valve

whilst not covering every possible angle, its nice to hear valve's outline of a reward system for 'good players'.

Obviously, prior to the discounts being given, some background checking would go on - its a bit naive to think that just because a clan voted their own members up, it would give them a guaranteed insta-discount on all games.
