How do you get more card drops
I see in the badge section i got like 5 out of 5 card drops for TF2. I'm wondering if i can get any more card drops in the future or if im already maxed out.

After you use up all your card drops for a single game, you're eligible for a booster pack, which is awarded to accounts on a random basis. Each booster pack contains three more cards for the specific game.

You cant get more than the initial amount. After that all you can get is a booster pack which is given randomly and it takes forever.

I think you can get only half of the ones available by yourself...

Those booster packs are ridiculously rare so don't hold your breath. I have like 15 games had have trading cards and I've gotten the card drops for all of them and I've only gotten one booster pack. Once you get all your card drops the only way to get more is to trade with other people or buy them in the Market.

not mentionned above is that the higher you steam level the higher the drop rate for booster packs
lvl 10 = 20%
lvl 20 = 40%
lvl 30 = 60% etc etc etc

For Team Fortress 2 and Warframe you can earn extra card drops by spending money in the game shops. For every $9 USD you spend (not necessarily at one time) you get one extra card drop.
You can see your progress for an extra drop by clicking the "How do I earn card drops?" link in the game badge / card collection.

More info can be found in the FAQ

the annoying thing here is that there is never any indication displayed that u have gained xp or leveld up? other than mannualy tracking your progress ....right?

What a clever way to boost your sales, Steam.

I thought it was kinda stupid. Until I started to see my card collection go up and wanted to re-play old games so I could get their cards. Now I'm trading TF2 junk I never use for money to complete my card collection. Who would have thought?

I wish they give us more booster packs, I'd really like to finish some of my badges but don't want to spend money to buy cards...

Wrong. you should have a tab at the top of steam with your steam name under that go to profile and you will see your level prominently displayed with how many points you need to reach the next

That is manual, because you're going through things yourself to get to it. I think he means notifications when you do level and a progress bar in the steam overlay or something.

Yeah, I just hit lvl 10, so I'll see if I can go from zero boosters to > 0. Also, do I have a better chance to get a booster if I have more games without card drops remaining? I have a half dozen games that I haven't played since the badge process started, so if clearing out my current drops help, I'll get those done.
