    I've been working on Steam Trading Cards and Badges for the past couple days. Once they're approved, you'll earn Steam rewards for playing SSL. :)

    Steam games that utilize cards require the user to gather the full deck of cards for that particular game. Playing periodically will drop cards until you've reached around half of the required cards for the game's deck. After that, the game will stop dropping cards and the other half of needed cards will have to be acquire via the means of trading with a friend or purchasing them from the Steam community store. Once you have all the cards in the game's deck, you can craft a badge which will be featured on your Steam profile, giving you an emoticon to use in Steam chat, a background for your Steam profile, a coupon for another game on Steam, and 100 EXP to go towards your Steam level. Normally games have five levels of badges, allowing you to level up the specific badge each time you acquire a full deck, giving you more stuff and another 100 EXP each time. If you do not wish to keep the cards or items that come from the badge, you can always list them on the Steam community store to make a few cents or convert them into Steam gems.

    Thanks Kyle.

    It's a small way that will increase the player count. Not necessarily one I would find myself striving for but awesome it will attract a new audience that hunt for these.

    Finally trading cards! A lot of Steam nerds take that into account when buying things, so a pretty good decision. :)

    Maybe they just want cool stuff on their steam profile to show off to their friends. I'm gonna get that badge, and wear it proudly on my steam profile because I rarely go for badges. :D

    guys lets be honest i know that like rum say steam is full of nerds that want all badges so it's a good update for game.
    But i still think that it should have been put just before official realase and not as a waited/important update :/ i think most of community prefered new stuff usefull for game play than this :/

    How many cards are in an average deck? :confused: If there's 1,400 and i get half and sell for 1 penny each = free Shellshock.

    i wonder what kyle type of artwork he's going to put in the badge when you unlock it because every one comes with a profile background and an emoticon Google567 can you tell kyle that?
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    they range from 4-13 or higher it's not hard to get

    Emoticons are easy.

    But I certainly do hope that he won't use in-game screenshots as profile backgrounds........

    Trading Cards are out now. There are 12 of them, and people are already selling them @ $2.30 Seriously though, if you are selling your cards at $2.30, nobody is gonna buy them. You should lower it to 30 cents at least.

    Lol I would buy the cheapest card on sale and resale them. THATS HOW U WOULD MAKE SOME PROFIT @Google567 so yea those "noob" may be noobs but they're smart Kinda

    If that's is possible I would sale them at the highest price so the other person couldn't get a profit
