Why are giveaways not showing up for me on time?

  • 122

Hey. I've been a member for quite a long time now, and i could rarely get any steam keys from giveaways. 

Let's take yesterday's giveaway for example. I log in today morning, and see "bloodharvest giveaway, started 14 hours ago". that's pretty funny because i was on my computer until midnight (that's 10 hours ago). so where had this giveaway been for the 4 hours which I spent online? 

no app notification, nothing on the website. and i mean nothing. i've checked the site multiple times and no new giveaway.

and yet still, as always, next morning the giveaway appears with "no more keys". what's this and how to fix it? i feel pretty demotivated seeing all these giveaways only the day after with no keys at all. 

oh yes, i can get the skin giveaways with 999,999 keys - I'm glad for any giveaways (even skins), don't get me wrong, but usually those skins are pointless to me since the base game has already run out of keys....

Hey i seem to have similar thoughts and i know U.S residents have their own copy of this site.

Is it possible that the two different sites run at different times???

i actually use a VPN to have access the U.S site (both sites have different quests...good way of getting more ARP)


I don't have proof because of the nature of how this happens, but I could swear that the same happens to me too. I tend to check daily, usually there's nothing new and one day I check and there's a giveaway that's been up for days so I'm "WTH". Many times the keys are all gone.


I had a similar gripe, documented here. According to OrgWithaStick, the reason is that threads get created, but than wait for review or approval, or they create them after arranging the deal, but of course, the giveaways have a certain start date.

Your best bet is the homepage, where giveaways are featured in the order of publication.

Yes, I know what you mean. I always check the comment section by the way, and these giveaways usually start at 8 pm (my time). This proves that there must be some kind of a bug, because lots of people are commenting right after 8 pm, but they only show up on my homepage/giveaways on the next day. Same as blood harvest as I mentioned above.. it showed "started 14 hours ago", and the people were thanking the giveaway accordingly, exactly 14 hours ago, after 8 pm my time. 

I don't have problem with the giveaway popping up like "created 20 days ago" and it's fresh, my problem is something like after they pop up, I still don't see them, only the day after.


If u go to the forums page and look at the bottom under Arena Rewards Discussions u will see all the different contests not always showing at the top on Giveaways. There are contests for NA and also Global. KnightWolf posted this yesterday on a different thread. I've missed out on the giveaways too sometimes by not seeing them listed on top until they were gone.

I'm having the same issue. I'm still not sure why these giveaways aren't showing up under the giveaway section. I finally get it after 3 days (already full of comments from 3 days ago) and this isn't the first time this has happened. there's no point in me lvling up my rank (i'm master bronze and get absolutely no benefit from it) if I'm not even getting giveaway in time to actualy get the key. I'm not sure what's causing this, if this is done on purpose (maybe region related?) no idea but it should be fixed :(
