Why were my remaining card drops taken away?
I played for about 2 hours, haven't gotten any cards, and now my badge list says there are no card drops remaining. Why was I robbed of drops?

It's because the Christmas event changed the rules. On the very day the event ends and databases are restored to normal, everything is back to normal.

I get to wear a smug "I told you so," expression now :100percent:

Apparently not, I have games I got years ago in giveaways that I never got card drops on that should have had them, so that theory is a load of horse pucky, it's something that Steam manual restricts under the assumption of being a giveaway, therefore they believe we aren't entitled to receive those card (only reason I think we actually saw them com back this time is bencelot made the effort to contact them, something most developers/publishers wouldn't bother to do, the largest ones don't even monitor Steam forums for their games anymore)...

  • The Geneshift cards immediately stopped dropping when they changed dbs to the Christmas event
  • They started dropping again immediately after that temporary change was rescinded.

So yeah, smug. 100 percent.

I'll compile that list of games where cards are still negated, then we'll see how smug you are about that opinion afterwards, I'm guessing at least 10, if not over 50 are missing card drops due to being redeemed through activation keys.

EDIT: I've added another tab to my spreadsheet I was using to help Steam Trade Matcher get their information corrected (as well as used to help in calculating cards for games that I can craft a badge for, even if some trading is necessary before it's possible), I'll be using this new tab to save some time for real-time updates to the list as opposed to multiple edits to this post (this will be transferred to a new list once I get the review up, but the publication of that review is getting pushed back because of somebody's smug attitude...):

Which games?

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion still doesn't drop.

So is it only people with the dlc that get card drops ?

Well they dropped for me, looks like some people get them and some not maybe some problem in the db.

Do you mean they dropped for you just now?

"the moment db changed"

When was that then (yesterday?) and which other games had issues before (some examples?) ?

i really wonder what i'm doing differently. i'm close to my 2k+ badge and since the introduction of trading cards i never ever had any problems with cards not dropping.

maybe because i don't hoard stuff- when i buy/ activate a game, i farm the cards and sell them immediately. usually the same day.

they readded the cards back..yeah!

That appears to only be the case with F2P games & it's based on how much you pay towards those games over Steam, so activation keys don't count towards this balance. You can get these specific details (as well as progress towards the next gained drop) by clicking on the How do I earn card drops? link on your Badges page. I REALLY don't like how this works with F2P games & have found some games that are incorrectly labeled as F2P games (see Primal Carnage: Extinction) using this system (could be one of the issues with card drops like this one had, some of them never get cleared up).

Still going through my list of games, only got about a 3rd of the way through my primary account's licenses page before I needed a break, most of the games I haven't gotten drops in I assume are going to be 2015 or later... My secondary account will likely take longer, but won't have to search through it for games acquired through activation keys, it's library consists solely of games acquired through activation keys & gifted games from my primary account (I'll provide evidence in the spreadsheet I'm using to track it as I locate games where drops were negated via screenshots, this list will be added to the review once it's been written).
