Wait, so how do foils work? I thought foils were just uber rare and anyone can get them, but people here are posting as if it's related to Steam level somehow? Do you need Steam level 10 to get foils? Is steam level actually useful for anything other than e-peen?

You have to be level 10 for foils to drop. Every 10 steam levels you unlock a new showcase for your profile.

Yes.

And I guess foil badges give you more XP, but you have to get a full set of foil cards so that's pretty insane.

And no, it's not really useful for anything but e-penis (at last not yet), but that's just like my rl-penis atm, so I kinda like it.

yeah when I got most of my cards I thought I had a chance of getting the foils, then i read the FAQ and found out you had to be level 10... I figure there will be plenty of games added over the next month that I own though so now that I am level 10 hopefully I can get a foil sometime.

But if I've unlocked all the cards already with a lower than level 10 profile, is there any chance of more dropping once I get to level 10? Is there a new cap for foils?

And how do you increase your level other than buying cards and using them to make badges and such? I don't care about any of that stuff and am not willing to put money into it.

Anyone at level 10 know how likely it is that foils drop in any case?

if you unlocked all your cards already you won't get anymore from those games (aside from dota 2 and TF2 if you pay more money) you would just have a chance of getting foils on other games as they get cards.

as for increasing your level without buying cards to make badges...(or trading for them) the sales have badges and you get 50 exp per year you have been signed up for steam... aside from those, and crafting badges the only other way i know to get some exp on steam is to release a game on steam.

I hope someone decides to release a game on Steam just to get a higher Steam level.

Finally have the achievement showcase in my options but it seems a bit useless. Just picked some random games so I can't show off more substantial, and rare things such as beating Metro 2033 on Ranger Hardcore. Oh well, sticking with the screenshot showcase it seems.

When I got my foil, it counted towards the total drop. It's only 1 foil per game at level 10 and I still picked up the other 3 cards for HL2.
The 1 foil per game is to prevent people from hording and selling it for a high price. That's just my guess.

Collecting the whole set and crafting a badge gives 100 exp, an emoticon, a coupon and a profile background. At level 10, there is a chance to get foil cards. Every 10 levels, you get a showcase to display your stuff.
Mostly nothing really besides raising your e-peen. You can't get the whole set by yourself. Need to trade or use the marketplace.
If you get to level 10 and happen to get a foil card. You can make some money selling it.

They have a chance of dropping instead of normal cards once your steam profile level is 10 or above.

I came across a profile of someone who had a bunch of foil badges, perhaps I misread but I'm almost certain a foil badge gives 100XP like a normal badge does. It's just a separate badge entirely. Is just costs ~$20/card to achieve \o/

You'll have to wait for more events that will have badges to obtain such as the summer sale.

I wonder if Valve will ever discontinue Series 1 cards, if they do I can imagine the prices sky-rocketing up pretty quickly.

I mean if you can't get new ones and the supply gets lower everytime someone crafts a badge they could slowly become pretty rare
