Every Steam user has a level, with higher levels granting bonuses like extra slots on your friends list and higher drop rates for booster card packs more on those later.
They had plenty of advice for a rookie like me, but before we dig into their strats, let's run through the basics. Knowing these basics, I assumed that the way to get a high Steam level was to simply buy and play a boatload of games.
After talking to the experts, I quickly discovered how wrong I was. You don't actually need to own a game to craft its badge; you can simply trade for or buy the necessary cards on the Steam marketplace. Considering the size of my Steam backlog, I was very glad to hear this.
But how do you know what cards to buy? Steam Tools is your first stop for all things badge-related. Full card sets are listed with their average purchase price on the Steam marketplace, with plenty of filters to find the cheapest sets and hide ones you've already crafted.
Simply sort by price, click on the cheapest set's marketplace link, and you'll be taken straight to the current Steam listings for the relevant cards. From searching to buying, the whole process takes a fraction of the time it would directly through Steam. Steam Tools also features a level-cost calculator for approximating how much you'd need to spend buying cards to reach a particular level.
It doesn't factor in XP earned from non-card badges or Steam sales, so it's a bit of a high-ball estimate, but it still puts the cost of Steam levelling in perspective.
Chump change! Another useful site is Steam Card Exchange. Here you can trade your duplicate cards for ones you actually need by using the site's automated Trading Bot. Just remember that bots are forbidden by the Steam Subscriber Agreement "You may not use cheats, automation software botsmods, hacks, or any other unauthorized third-party software, to modify or automate any Subscription Marketplace process," it readsso use at your own risk. After collecting a full card set, I expected the next step would be to craft some badges.
As The Cpt Froggy explained to me, though, it's actually better to save your uncrafted sets for the big Steam Summer and Winter sales. All badges crafted during these sales events award you with bonus Steam event cards that can be crafted into event-specific badges, each of which can be levelled up endlessly during the period of the sale. This is where The Cpt Froggy focuses his efforts, saving every four out of a game's five card sets for crafting during the next sale.
ROFL and StrikeR echoed the importance of going all-in during sales, with StrikeR telling me 'seasonal sales events [are] hands down the best way to level up your profile. When it comes time to craft, XP won't be your only reward. Every badge you craft drops three random items, stuff like emoticons and profile backgrounds that I'd always written off as junk. But as StrikeR pointed out, it's junk with monetary value. By reinvesting that money in more badges, he was able to boost his level to the massive it is today.
Unless you're badging the latest and greatest games, most of your item drops will fetch only a couple of cents on the marketplace, but they're cents you can put to more cards, and more badges. And if nobody's in the market for your baseball-bat-swinging cupcake emoticonyou can break it down into gems which you can then use to craft booster packs for even more cards—and the cycle of crafting continues.
As shiny as they are, foil cards are a bad investment. A badge crafted from foils earns the same XP as a normal badge, but foils sell for much, much more on the marketplace. StrikeR advises selling foil cards and using the funds to buy multiple cheaper, regular cards instead.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts. Change language. Install Steam.
