The big ol'Steam Trading Card for trading Trading Cards

#1 Edited by Abendlaender (2803 posts) -

So I guess this is a thing now.

Might as well open a thread here to help you fulfill all your Steam Level and/or Trading Card wishes without spending money on it, right? Right. Somebody smarter than me could probably come up with a complicated and better organized system to do this but since everybody else is just going to post "HAVE X WANT Y" I guess I just start.

I offer "Destruction" from Portal 2 and I'll take any card from Portal 2 except Mannequin (and Destruction durr)

Just add me on Steam (Abendlaender because I'm not very creative) and BÄM. You can also add me if you just happen to like me.

Let the (madness) trading begin

This a good idea!

I'll be sure to check this thread if steam ever send me an invite.

#3 Posted by RareMonkey (106 posts) -

Yea was hoping for an invite once I get one i will more than be willing to do some trades

#4 Posted by OmegaPirate (5522 posts) -

Might be worth someone throwing up a ' i have a spare beta invite' thread too - not many people seem to even be aware of this thing - and the trading group chat is full of people demanding multiple games for an invite to the beta.

#5 Posted by Pikawai (135 posts) -

They just announced a new wave of invites sent (apparently yesterday they sent 10000 and perhaps it's the same number this around too)... but I still didn't get any.

#6 Posted by AlisterCat (5559 posts) -

I play a lot of don't starve and dota so I hope I get an invite so I can start earning trading cards!

There are currently around a 150,000 people in the Steam group. I'm putting my waiting hat on.

Just putting it out there, the beta invites for trading cards are going for about 25c on the marketplace. I know it's dumb to pay for, but if you really want in right now, just buy an invite.

#14 Posted by RioStarwind (544 posts) -

I've got a G-man, Gordan Freeman x2 and a Trouble underground card. All from half life 2 obviously. Up for any TF2, Portal2 or any HL2 cards I don't have yet.

#15 Edited by Jaqen_HGhar (895 posts) -

Still haven't gotten an invite, but will probably trade cards once I do. I'm kinda fucked so far though, as I don't play many of the games on the list. Haven't touched TF2 in ages, and don't think it is wise for me to play DOTA as I would only play it casually at best.
Hopefully the number of games will increase, and that there will be more singleplayer games on there.

@soap: people are selling their spare invites on the steam marketplace, invites are going for about 25 - 30 cents.

#18 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -

I went and spent real money on steam trading cards to complete a set do not make my mistake do not live the life I live.

#19 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

@jaqen_hghar: Don't you worry, the site even says "We'll be adding more as we get them done." in their list of games.
So they will add more, no need for us to sit around and hope.

All we can do now is play the waiting game*.

*Game not included in that list of currently supported games


Well ok, I'm not getting any "fancy" things since I'm not in the beta, but still. Waiting! Woo!

I have a Wendy from Don't Starve to trade a card from any game.

I got a 33% OFF Euro Truck Simulator 2 from crafting the TF2 badge, and I'll take pretty much almost anything for it.

#24 Edited by Protonguy (305 posts) -

any spare invites still kicking around? looks pretty neat :). Steam user Ulgrim

#25 Edited by AlisterCat (5559 posts) -

@Gnubberen: Says you have 0 items in your inventory. I've traded the card now though.

#26 Edited by audioBusting (1534 posts) -

Screw you guys, I'm selling all my cards and invites on the Market. #followthemoney

(Seriously though, I'm willing to spare one invite. It's kinda fun.) edit: taken

@alistercat: My bad, must have changed my privacy settings to stop all the friends requests I got, from guys who wanted to buy my TF2 Max hat. The inventory should be viewable now.

#28 Edited by Extreme_Popcorn (842 posts) -

I'm after Bounty Hunter, Tidehunter, Tiny, Tusk and Vengeful Spirit for Dota 2.

Got Spy, Pyro and Heavy for TF2 and Gordon and Alyx to trade for them.

Steam ID is ExtremePopcorn

#29 Posted by ThomasG666 (154 posts) -

Give it to me.

#31 Posted by Nekroskop (2786 posts) -

I sold all my cards for a total of 20 USD. The only ones I'm missing are the DOTA2 cards. Do I need to have DOTA2 premium to get those? That set doesn't even show up in my Quests.

For the most part this is what I've been doing. The Portal 2 cards were going for like .80c so I sold two of them and just bought up the last TF2 cards I needed. This marketplace thing is crazy.

#33 Posted by Fattony12000 (7402 posts) -

God, I need to be all up in this shit. Knowing my luck I'll get in just as they close the beta down or something.

YOU WIN THIS ROUND...AGAIN! DAMN YOU GABEN!!

The sad/sexy thing is that I'm probably the most balls deep into TCGs (digital and analogue) out of all of you, I've been watching this weekend's Dragon's Maze PT coverage. The thought of grinding out DIGITALLY CRAFTABLE VIDEO GAME TRADING CARDS is just getting me wholly damp.

I've got some invites, PM me if anybody wants in.

All gone!

I just want to know what Valve's economist is thinking creating an economy with no way to get any more cards once they're gone. That's not fun. But it is profitable... Valve's economist has taken over! We need to send in out top fungineers to sort out this mess.

#37 Edited by AlisterCat (5559 posts) -

I have a spre 'SWAT' trading card for CS:GO. Willing to trade for any other card.

#38 Edited by AlisterCat (5559 posts) -

I've also got a spare engineer card for TF2. Will trade for any card.

#39 Edited by oljunebug (13 posts) -

I'm looking for a trading card invite! Hell, i'll trade a copy of Half life 2: EP 1 and the first Poker Night at the Inventory I have sitting in my account.

Edit: Nvm, just got one!

Just so everyone knows, you can buy invites on the marketplace for ~$.30.

#42 Edited by HaroldoNVU (591 posts) -

I'm looking for Dota 2 cards. I have an extra Riki to trade for Tusk, Tidehunter, Phantom Lancer, Tiny.

Still looking to trade, @stonepawfox? @extreme_popcorn?

I have two invites if you guys still need them. Add RadWizard on Steam.

Dude, sick! Mega thanks! Weird thing is though that upon opening up Steam this morning (I'm in the UK) I already had one sat in my inventory AND seemed to be in the beta anyway!?

WHAT DID YOU DOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?

I started at Level 10, is that normal?

#46 Posted by MachoFantastico (4682 posts) -

Have three invites for the trading card system this morning, anyone interested?

@hamst3r: got an invite yes? if not you can have one of mine, just add me - kurinkita on steam

It's so shady that you have to pay $9 to get another card drop in the F2P games. It's cheaper just to buy any remaining cards from the steam market.

Yeah, that really sucks. I'm not really happy with the system at all, I kinda thought that they would "reset" the card drops after some time but it seems like that's it. So if you really want to complete your sets you have no real option than to hand out some cash.
