We've all heard of them, maybe even some of us have gotten them. What are they, where do they come from, how do we get more of them?
Alright, I know there is a FAQ about this, but it really doesn't clarify a whole lot. I've got tons of questions, but only several come to mind right now.
Firstly, I've heard that booster packs are awarded weekly, if someone maintains "eligibility", which apparently means having one game that you've received all drops from, and having logged in at least once in the past week, you can receive a booster pack. I thought this meant that booster packs are dropped weekly. Then, someone posted that steam had confirmed that Booster packs can drop hourly.
Steam apparently posted that a level 10 user (maintaining eligibility) has a %20 chance to receive a booster pack. If they drop hourly that user, statistically, should receive multiple booster packs a day. I've also heard that steam has since increased the drop rate of booster packs.
I've only received one booster pack and it was at exactly 6:00PM central, on a Sunday, which to me is a good "weekly" time.
