Steam Level Rewards List
i looked around and could not find this information. as i have found others to have the same question i thought i would start a thread here for people to wiki this information into existance as Steam/Valve does not really specify what these rewards are other than some general vaguries.

the rewards for Steam Levels are as follows:
–reward / 1 level = +5 friend slots
(base: 250, link facebook: +50)
–reward at level 5 level 8* = receive trading cards for voting in the community choice votes during a steam sale event
–reward / 10 levels = +1 profile showcase slot
–reward / 10 levels = increased drop rate for booster packs from community crafted badges

thank you to all who posted for sharing this information and correcting my initial misconception of how the rewards structure worked.

*note: valve has revised up the required steam profile level to get drops from community choice votes. read the faq on the store front page. i am of the opinion that since they have done this once they will likely continue to do this.

please post screenshots of the level up rewards as you get them for easy confirmation. imgur is great for that.

That a very long list, with very few rewards. Come on Valve, get rewarding your customers with some prizes!

They are as follows.
Every 1 level = +5 friends
Every 10 levels = +1 profile showcase

That is everything.

So how about some real rewards, for example a random discount coupon every week if you are level 20+. Getting 5% of your purchase amount in wallet credit when you buy a game if you are level 30+.

^ This. No need to do a list.

Level 10, 20 30, 40 you get a +20% bonus to booster drop rate and an extra showcase in your profile. Every level gives +5 friends slots. Level 5 or more gets you cards from the voting in the summer sale.

Levels don't get you background, emoticons or coupons, that comes from crafting the badges themselves, which is what also is currently the main way of getting XP - so of course for levels below 11 you get +1 level for every badge you craft at the same time as getting the profiles/emoticons, so that might be the confusion, but those bonuses are actually from the badge not the level side of things (this obviously makes a difference from level 11 onwards as initially you need 2 badges per level, then from 21 you need 3 badges per level, etc.)

Woops! Forgot it is for badge and not level. So yeah, even less stuff per level than I thought.

What does the + 5 friend slots do? Is it a limit for how many friends you can have?
b33f3r Jul 21, 2013 @ 3:11pm 
yes it would seem that steam as applied a cap to how many friends you can have. and the cap is increased every 5 levels.

So, then why do I have two showcases at LVL 12?
