Steam Trading Cards

Now you may be asking, what the fuck is this?
That is an incredibly valid question with no acceptable answer. Though the first tidbit on the official page is the best summary.
Steam Trading Cards are virtual cards earned by playing games on Steam. Sets of cards can be turned into game badges and tradable Steam community items.
You can get stuff like chat emoticons, game coupons, special profile backgrounds on your community page, and other stuff. It's weird.

I don't even want to begin understanding what the fuck this is.

But I joined the little group thing for it, cause what the hell.

Grabbed mine at 2.30

I hope they push the invites out quick. I'm not paying to get in but I love getting sucked into gimmicks designed to make you spend more money.

I really dislike this.
Making people unlock useless shit they can spam if they are a high "level" is just dumb. Just the idea of any form of gamerscore is retarded because it's nothing more than a way to measure your e-penis. Just the whole idea of trading cards on a fucking service like steam is just retarded.
Fuck this shit.

Also I hate image emoticons in chats with a fucking passion

I wouldn't be so quick to judge, especially considering one thing you can earn from this service is game discount coupons. It wasn't too long ago Gabe (it was Gabe right?) was talking about coming up with a way to reward those players that actively contribute to the community, and are overall beneficial to it. People who are a positive influence and ones you'd WANT playing your game. This entire trading cards thing is really really far out there, but I can definitely see its relation to that idea.

Price went down to 20 cents,
I'm not great with inflation and deflation regarding Steam so why did it go down so low?

Because the only reason it even went over $2 was because people were excited and weren't thinking, so the price was driven up as that's the price people were paying. Now the only people willing to buy are every rational person who wasn't gonna pay over 20 cents in the first place. Meanwhile I made $4 off dumb impatient people.

Read into it, while a neat and interestin feature, especially if it gets implemented into all (Or atleast most) steam games, it's just another quick cash grab.
