    Steam Trading Cards

    Had a play with this, nothing special. Changes your profile though to the new layout and adds a sort of metagame to Steam for bragging rights with a card and level system. Earn badges from events like sales and you get XP to increase your Steam Level and add show-off stuff to your profile. You can also craft badges from cards by completing a deck, obtained by playing any of these games:

    - Counter-Strike: Global Operations
    - Portal 2
    - Don't Starve
    - DOTA2 (F2P Restrictions)
    - Half-Life 2
    - Team Fortress 2 (F2P Restrictions)

    You can obtain up to half the cards for each deck by just playing the game (or idling on the menu if you so desire) but F2P games grant 1 drop per $9 spent on the game and up to 5 drops if you purchased anything in-game before trading cards came in. TF2 also grants up to 5 if you purchased the game before it's F2P transition.

    At Level 10 you can get rare foil cards to complete a foil deck. To complete the rest of the deck, you either buy them on the marketplace (yawn!) or trade excess cards with friends which is far more interesting. Completed decks win you custom profile backgrounds, DLC, coupons, emoticons and all grant a badge to show off.

    And for those who want to completely ignore it, it isn't required at all and entirely optional. Feel free to donate your unwanted cards to your fellow geeks though...

    Adding DLC to the list of things these cards can get you [which is probably a VERY rare chance] makes it seem more worthwhile than it actually is.


    0/10 - go [censored] yourself, Valve.

    [I'm still annoyed with single-use online activation for PC games.]

    I doubt you will get a COD map pack or expansion pack from it, probably something trivial and silly like a TF2 hat or DOTA2 character.

    Get in touch on Steam, I have two spare invites to trade.

    Also saddo moment: I got excited at my first foil card last night from HL2. And it is Gordon Freeman of all characters! The ultimate foil? :P

    I'll add you when I get home (or if you are at home already, add Rikev in the group's list).

    If you had waited, I could have sent an invite.

    I still have all 3 from when I joined the beta.

    However I did not wait, and received an invite 3 minutes after the request! Impatience FTW!

    There's no way they'd make a DOTA hero DLC. Likely outfits, taunts or HUD's though. (Every DOTA unlockable is purely cosmetic and makes no difference to the hero abilities, if you didn't know. It's not like TF2)
    I can certainly see TF2 hats being on that list, though!
