steam items

so right now i am sitting on a bunch of copies of items. frankly none of which are worth more than 6 cents. i was wondering if either it could be set so we don’t get multiples of the same item or maybe the way we get items should change.

one idea i had was why not have a loot chance drop for them in game instead of just randomly giving us items willy nilly.

this also would be a good way for us to use our blue prints to gain steam items instead of them going to waste once we got all the ingame standard items.

also this is just another idea i had. the way we get blueprints from fragments seems really random. why not let us choose what we want to research from each tier of fragments.
