(Closed) Crafting badges is addicting :(

Won't you agree?

I drew a line though. I'll max out only those games I really love. Portal 2, HL 2 and Super Meat Boy so far. I've already maxed them out. Now waiting for more games I love :)

Valve is cheating you out of your money

No worse than buying a Tf2 key and opening a crate.

No worse than getting cheated out of your money is still not a good thing.

Not really. I buy cards for money I get from selling cards I don't want. So I lose nothing :) Well, I could use it on buying games but I've already have a huge backlog. I've spent like 30 euros on my badges so far.

However, for all these cards, and all these cards you buy, Valve gets their part of it. So Gaben gets more dosh.

Laudes

So? I like Valve and I have no problem supporting them. Everything they make is good for their customers and I think they deserve some money for that.

hustlayo

So So? I wasn't really saying that it is a bad thing. I'm neutral, they want money, do I care? Not at all. The badges are nice, and it is a money printing machine for Valve, that's for sure. Now if they make HL3 of that money or not is not really a big deal either, they do as they wish, and I have bigger things to hope for then HL3 to come out. We all have dreams yo

+1, yo, the truth has been spoken.

hustlayo

I was just thinking earlier that the whole trading card thing is printing dosh for Valve, exactly because of the market fee. Nice move, Valve.

Not everyone uses market for them.

I get money, the game devs get money, Valve gets money... Who exactly is losing out here?

The people who buy the cards.

Vercinger

If they were losing they wouldn't do that. They gain what they buy and they like it. Everyone wins.

I bought 40 faerie solitaire cards from the market, to craft that badge and get it to lvl 5, I'm happy with that, and I'm gonna buy more cards in the future.

I hate the idea of having tons of badges. And yes, crafting is addictive

Do only for those games you absolutely love. Like me :)

hustlayo

(1 year ago)

Yep, trying to do that.

Stopped crafting badges after Level 10. Just want to reach that level. :3

Laudes (1 year ago)

I agree, however I can't see myself crafting a badge without making it level 5, atleast if I really like the game. Planning on doing these lvl 5

Crusader Kings 2 (my favorite Strategy game, I absolutely love it! I own all of the dlcs, I have lots of hours ahead of me in this game)

anything where you need to collect something is addicting if you have an addictive personality

I do. That's the problem.

I ended up selling all the cards I own, due to making a heavy loss on a foil. Oh well...

loss on a foil? If you had found it you didnt loose anything! Maybe the price was much higher at the beginning, but did anyone really buy it for that much or did people just keep on underpricing each other?!

AtzeMD

(1 year ago)

I bought a foil hoping to sell it for a decent profit (it was priced cheaper than the next lowest by several bucks). But I set the price a little too high (by only several cents) and next thing I knew, the price had tumbled down by a lot...Okay, I haven't actually made the loss yet, but I'm 99.95% sure that it won't sell if I try to price it at a profitable price, or even a break even price.

MDuh (1 year ago)

I don't think so, the only reward that I want from crafting is those emotes/background. But if the emote or the background is much more cheaper than the cards, then forget about crafting

there will be rewards for badges/crafting in the summer sale.

do I care? I get my steam games from russians anyways

MDuh

Good for you.

Nixxi

so there wont be a summer sale in russia?! ;)

AtzeMD

(1 year ago)

then I won't spend anything on summer sale

MDuh

+1 lol

waskaxo

free games > buying from russians

besides, there is quite a bit of games that are region-locked.

BernardoOne

(1 year ago)

Source please. And yes I know the downside on russian traders having RU/CIS restrictions, but have you seen an indie game that is region-locked in russia? cause I haven't

MDuh

(1 year ago)

Hopefully cause I already maxed out 3 badges. I hope they'll remember about those who did it before their event. And I hope that badges with level 5 will get some special benefits during the event.

Got badges and free money as well thanks to foil cards lol. To be honest, at first I can't think that I will be a card-fetish like this lol

I can't get any foil :/

I have 300 friends and growing. I can craft a couple badges with my foil money.

-ive. Addictive.

nigerianmahogany (1 year ago)

I stopped after I got a foil, sold it, and got to 10. Seems like a waste of money now there's booster packs. Although I just think that it's a way to spend the leftover money you have in your steam wallet.

CombatWars (1 year ago)

1 XP left...

But I got two more sets...:D So it's all good. lolz

one or two games added should work

zeruz

(1 year ago)

Yeah but I had two sets in my inventory and just crafted them. I didn't have any games left but I might pre-order COD Ghost

Edit: Got COD Ghost...still missing that 1 EXP for a perfect --00 score. lolz

CombatWars

(1 year ago*)

I got 3 xp left to level 12.

FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU

If there was more incentive to crafting a badge then I would be more likely to participate. But as it is; I prefer to just sell the cards on the market and use the steam wallet I get from it on impulse on sale items. I'd rather have a game than a badge.

Yeah, I can't see the point of getting more than level 10 on my profile. I like the showcases, but only really wanted the achievement showcase.

2 showcases are better! :)

Once I craft a badge, I max it out and it's only for games I enjoy playing. I don't enjoy collecting badges at level 1 or 2 just for the sake of having the badge. The past two weeks have been very disappointing for me because no games I enjoy playing have released cards :P

ladynadiad (1 year ago)

The games I really love aren't likely to get badges and cards, so I just crafted two with games I have that had cheap cards and the badges at least looked neat so I could get to level 10. So I have a Magicka and Offspring Fling! badge even though I've barely played both games.

I know your pain... I wish Bad Rats and Horrid Henry got cards too :( I'd max them out right away!

hustlayo

(1 year ago)

You never know, I never thought CK2 would get cards, and I alreadyk now Thomas Was Alone will get some, and probably Hotline Miami too... If to the moon gets cards too, then I will have cards for all my favorite games. Killing Floor should get some cards too! In time, in time.

Dgek90PL (1 year ago)

Just got 10 level and started selling all my cards. I got like 15€ from them (no foils).

xth3rm4lx (1 year ago)

i've done it twice

Enverex (1 year ago)

I started to lose interest when I realised I'm going to have to spend a LOAD of money to actually get any badges due to how few card drops you get and that booster packs seem to be pretty much non-existent.

Pokocany (1 year ago)

I couldn't care less about this badges than I am now. I just sell all my cards. Already bought the only background that I like and several games with that money.

Solidwtf2 (1 year ago*)

I sold enough cards to get a friend Gunpoint. Thanks Valve!

mhmed009 (1 year ago)

yes its addicting but i managed to beat it and i didnt craft a badge yet :D

einfachGaer (1 year ago)

nope, not at all, selling every card i get..

etze (1 year ago)

i have one maxed out badge (CS:GO) but i think i'll try to lvl up a few more sometime in the future

kataztrophik (1 year ago)

I'm personally addicted to see how much money I can make from selling these cards. I crafted a few badges back when you had to be level 10 for foils to drop (level 3 TF2 badge because they were cheap and a level 1 BL2 badge because I love that game) but aside from that I don't really feel the need to craft badges or increase my Steam level. I have purchased a few backgrounds or emoticons that I personally liked, but it's almost always cheaper to just buy that item directly instead of buying cards to craft badges.

Zrr00 (1 year ago*)

I just got to level 10, that's it for me. No more badges. I sold rest of my cards. So no, it's not addicting for me ^^
