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 :)

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.

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.

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

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.

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 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

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

Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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?!

Comment has been collapsed.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
