Booster Packs?
Anyone got any booster packs? And if so how rare are they to get

Well, I just got a Stellar Impact booster pack (my first one) and I've had all my drops for 3 or 4 days. I don't really know how rare they are though. I've had all my card drops for other games longer than that.

If your hoping for a specific booster, don't hold your breath.

The rate at which they drop depends on your steam level. Every ten levels or so you get a higher chance of it dropping. Not sure what the exact amount is. And you have to log into steam every week to maintain the ability to get them. I just got my third booster pack today since it was implemented, if that gives you an idea.

Rare as Foils. From grinding level 8-10 with badges I only found one.

Even more rare than Foils I'd say. I got a Foil Card within the first week but have not gotten any Booster Packs yet and I have 5 games that say I'm eligible and have been for some time now.
I thought when I hit level 10 and increased my odds I'd see one soon but still waiting for my first Booster to show up.

It depends how many games you have where you gotten all the free cards. I would say they are pretty rare. Lets say you have 20 games where you are eligible of getting booster pack. In month you would get one booster pack (If you are level 10ish)

These are random numbers I pulled, but something like this probably.

Which makes me laugh a little simply because I'm the other way around. I got a boster pack within the first week or two they introduced them while I have yet to find a foil card. I guess my point is they're out there for sure. The rarity, however, is going to be speculation based on who you're talking to and their personal experience to this point.

I got my first booster pack for Hotline Miami while I was playing CS:GO. They seem pretty dang rare. Every 10 steam levels you get an added 20% chance of one dropping (not sure what the default chance is if you are less than level 10). I don't know if you have to be playing any games or if you just have to be logged onto steam, either. The FAQ is a little vague about it.

I believe the base chance, before the modifier, can be mathematically expressed as "haha fat chance". They should call them unicorn packs. I fully expect to see a unicorn before one of these boosters.

"Booster packs are granted randomly to eligible users as more badges are crafted by members of the community." - so their rarity depends on how many cards the community spends. I've got 10 games with no card drops remaining (not that much, I know ^^), and I've not gotten any yet.

I've gotten a Grid2 Booster pack, CSGO, Portal2, Half-Life2, and 1 other one that escapes me at the moment.

I think people who craft badges should get more booster packs as they are actually using the cards.

They do in a way. The higher the level (which you gain from exp.. from crafting badges) increases your chance at getting them.
