Description

Welcome to the forty second week of the 52 weeks of Christmas!!! What is the 52 weeks of Christmas you might ask? I will be giving away a new game each week for 52 week. To make things more fun, I will be asking a new question each week also. I hope that by doing this I may brighten someones week. I even create a group on Steam where you can follow every giveaway(link at the bottom).I hope you will have as much fun as I do with this.

New Week, New Questions

For some reason we haven't talked about this yet so let's get to it. Last month Steam introduced a new profile page as a beta. The beta introduced several new features including card trading and levels. The cards are uses to crafted badges that in return gives you XP to level you up. Each new levels gives you many different things including coupons (replaced by summer cards for the duration of the sale), backgrounds and more.

What is your take on this new feature? Do you like how the cards are implemented? What would you change about it?

Do you have a topic or a question you would like to be featured as the question of the week? Leave it in this thread.thread.

Response

I like the idea and what it brings to steam but the implementation is not the best. I would have loved to have cards being dropped because of actions done while in the game, something akin to Uplay reward system. As it stands right now, its just promotes idling in game or being the cards on the market which in both cases doesn't really promote the game. This is the only thing I would change about it. I would make the cards drops tied to actions in game.

Overall though, I think it brings something else to the table for those who wants to chase levels without impeding much on the usability of the service.

Weeks of Christmas

God bless. :)

I like it myself, though I could wish it was less tied to the trading card system. As to the cards, I think the system needs some work. Much as you stated in your answer. If I could push thru one needed change it would be to reduce the free-to-play card drop limit cost. $9 is way to much. I'd probaly put it around the price of a key so $2.50 or so. As it stands now, it's easier and cheaper to buy the cards instead of an item, and the ones putting money into the games aren't likely to be intrested in doing it for the card drops. They would probaly just buy the background/emoticon/ect on the market instead. Also nice choice for a giveaway. Thanks!

I agree, the $9 F2P card drop price is way too high... It should be a single in game item (I don't think I've ever seen an item in TF2 or Dota 2 that cost less than $.75 which is more than enough for a single card drop that can only be sold for about $.10 now anyway)

I also think that you should be able to choose the profile reward you get from crafting a summer getaway badge, I crafted a level 1 badge a few hours ago and the reward I got was "+5 to my friends list", my friends list has NEVER gone over 100 let alone gotten near the old capacity of around 250 or so (I've never come close so I actually have no idea what the "regular" limit is for friends list). I would have much rather had ANYTHING else over the "+5 friends list capacity" reward. :(

Also, thank you thank you very much for this awesome giveaway xamon0288! (⌐■_■)

I've really had my eye on this game since I found out that it was on Steam, but with living on a fixed income, buying games for myself is basically out of the question until I get a new PC and start making money from uploading videos to YouTube again.

Thank You! I like the idea, but i would love to see the ability to get all cards from game.

That would create a real trading market, in my opinion, right now it's just who has more moneyyyz

Thanks. I like the idea of leveling and have gatheres a few badges but was mostly selling the cards. I'm not too into trading cards, that's why I stopped playing Magic the Gathering. As some people said, it would be more interesting if the cards were tied to either achievements or completing some parts of the game.
