Apart from the administration of fraudulent billing and purchase activities by Valve’s fraud department, we’ve implemented our own mechanism to provide additional security measures.
Newly created teams will not be able to register items on the market and participate in 1:1 trades for 3 days (72 hours). After the 72-hour mark, players will be able to fully use the market and trade systems as intended.
*You can still purchase items from the Market.
We’ll be checking for cases of abuse during those 3 days, and block abusers and confiscate their items as necessary.
We hope to maintain a reliable in-game economy by preventing abusive commercial activities ahead of time, and request your cooperation.
We will be performing a temporary server maintenance to apply these changes as a patch. Please look out for our maintenance announcement on this particular feature.
Thank you for your kind understanding.
