Valve in a couple of days is enforcing their steam mobile authenticator on the masses. This could destroy trading and betting websites, which has the added effect of potentially very harshly hurting esports (Mainly CS, and Dota 2) How you might ask? The mobile authenticator works similar to the email confirmation. If you deal a trade you go and type a code you get from mobile. This wouldn't be an issue if you could disable it, because if you _DO_ disable it your trades don't go through for a whole *THREE DAYS* this could screw automated trading bots that are working on all trading sites. Betting is what made Valve esports so popular. Without it Valve is risking killing off esports right as it started up. Not to mention Valve is pointing the finger and saying **** you to anyone who doesn't own a smartphone or I'd using a Windows phone. They're forcing android and apple on people unintentionally. (I'm an android user, only saying) Now why would they do this?... Eh there's a possibility this is just bad foresight. But there's also the possibility Valve wants to kill trading. Valve wants more users to use the steam market place. Why would people think Valve would do this? It just do happens Valve made it so if you turn on the mobile authenticator on early before it's enforced you get... Up to *33%* off items on the market place. That's a huge amount and could even **** over item economies. The worst part? Even with so much outrage from the players Valve has said nothing except that this is still going on. Anyone that thinks Valve can do no wrong... Eh. Thoughts?
