No, they're there to be collected and combined into badges and they give you the items I mentioned a couple posts back.

Well, as always it is


Overall, it is free and done in the background and you can either ignore it completely, toss the cards to other F13 people, or sell them if feeling greedy. Just don't ever ever ever buy or trade for TF2 cards

You can theoretically trade them on the marketplace if you don't want them (they go for something like 50 ea, as far as I can see).

Otherwise, yeah, looks unfinished.  I can play HL2 for an evening to earn every card I'll ever get from it, so as a long term motivator, it seems weak.  No matter how long I play game X I can't ever get a complete set for it without trading, and I don't think you even need the game at all to get all the cards for it, so it's not like it's going to encourage people to buy more games or play them for more than a few hours.

I could maybe see your "Steam Level" correlating to the number of achievements unlocked or games owned (like gamerscore or something) to encourage people to buy more games but it doesn't even do that.  And you don't get "levels" for getting cards, you get them for completing sets, which you can't do by yourself, so it's mostly just a measure of how much you've played the trading card game.

Maybe it's an attempt to build community stickiness or something, I don't know.

Not that I actually plan on doing any of this, but why is TF2 trading something to be avoided?

I don't think you even need the game at all to get all the cards for it, so it's not like it's going to encourage people to buy more games or play them for more than a few hours.

You give internet people and gamers far too much credit towards their common and financial sense. People will and do buy these games, just not always directly (example: they'll buy them from 3rd party markets like TF2 and Dota2 trading sites using their in-game items, this causes the sellers to re-purchase the games from Steam during their next sale and Steam wins). It doesn't matter how long someone plays it, just that someone buys it. Hell, selling the 4x Don't Starve cards you get pays for about half of the game anyways. Spend $10 on TF2 keys on the market or from a trusted seller, buy Don't Starve with the the 4-6 keys you'll have, sell the cards you received and you basically just bought Don't Starve for $5. Most people here probably won't give two fucks about doing that, but others will as they have that kind of time.

As much as I don't like the TCG, this is a good move by Steam that just needs some tweaks. The main thing is I have to keep reminding myself is that I'm not their targetted demographic. I'm not the kiddie who's using Steam as another social media, and I'm not someone who gives two fucks about what my profile looks like or what collections or achievements or badges people are aware of. Others are though, and Steam profits from that now.

Not that I actually plan on doing any of this, but why is TF2 trading something to be avoided?

Not TF2 in general (though that trading is to be avoided as it is a pile of shit) but I was saying to not buy or trade for TF2 cards (though I should have said "with your cards from other games"). Basically, with TF2 accounts being free means the market is flooded with those cards (and Dota2 to an extent, but not as much), which is why they're 50-80% cheaper than other cards. If you want TF2 cards, run TF2 in textmode on a new account on a media PC or something while you go do something else.

I've got a coupon for 75% off Lunar Flight if anyone wants it.  It's basically a 3D update of Lunar Lander, but you can do missions and upgrade your module and so on.  Kinda fun to play around with but not exactly life changing.  Cost is something like $2.50 after coupon.

  • 10% off Toki Tori 2+ (a value of almost $1.50!)
  • 50% off Sniper Elite V2
  • 66% off Starvoid

I have a spare Gone Home steam key if anyone wants. Just send me a PM. Gone.

Still available: PM me for a Don't Starve gift. I'll need your email address for that (in PM) if I don't have you as a steam friend already.

Don't worry about needing a trade. Free stuff.
