I do not accept blind invites, so if I don't know who you are, your friend invite will very likely be rejected. If you already know me from another community or in person, I would suggest contacting me to let me know what your Steam username is before sending me the invite so I will know to accept it. If you were friendly in a Steam community Discussion or during gameplay, I may send you a friend invite myself or accept yours if I recognize your name.

Furthermore there appears to be somebody trying to link me to a scam called SkinWinner. I have nothing to do with this site, don't add me if your purpose is you lost inventory to this scam. It became apparent this was the case after somebody contacted me during a Double Dragon Neon stream on Twitch assuming I was support for it; I am not & have the discussion documented in this video [www.twitch.tv] (after the boss battle). If you run into a Steam profile that states this account has some relevance to this scam, please report their profiles to Steam using the Report Violation option on their profile.

Normally I broadcast to my channel on Twitch [www.twitch.tv], however occasionally I may stream to Steam if I don't feel like setting up my Twitch channel before streaming or don't have the time to do a lengthy gaming session as I normally would. I don't usually have the chat overlay visible while streaming to steam due to limitations in placement that would make it an issue with covering up part of the HUD, however friends can still message me over Steam provided the Steam Overlay works in that game & doesn't get broken from video capture software during recording/streaming ( KickBeat being one of these games).

My wishlist is sorted in the following manner:
- Full Games (with price)
- - Price
- - - Game Name
- Full Games (without price)
- - Game Name
- DLC
- - Game Name
- - - Price
- - - - DLC name
- - - DLC name (without price)
- Full Games (boycotted items)
- - Price
- - - Game Name
- DLC (boycotted items)
- - Game Name
- - - Price
- - - - DLC name
NOTE: Boycotted items are items I'm not willing to purchase myself for a given reason, but will accept gifts:
- The Deadpool DLC is a special situation where I'm unwilling to buy into the game anymore until key rebinding is properly implemented.

Market Transactions
NOTICE: Due to Steam flagging my site & slandering it as a malicious website, I am ceasing all incoming trades outside of my friend list. I will be contacting Steam about this, however I don't know that I'll be opening back up open trading again (you can blame Steam for this one). Cards on the other hand are being traded to SteamTradeMatcher users, however friends get priority (even those that aren't using the Steam mobile app).

Community Card Trades:
Card trades will only be acceptable if I have dupes. If an offer is sent my way for a card I own that I don't have a duplicate of, the offer well be rejected or a counter-offer may be sent for a card that I might have a dupe of within the same game. Normally I only attempt to make trade offers to people that will be beneficial to both parties; this means both parties in any trade offer I send will only be taken from a pool of dupes & normally only from the same game (although sometimes there may cross-trades if I can't even out the dupes available between games).

Steam Game & Coupon Giveaway:
Games & coupons are being given away, but only directly if you are on my friend list. If you are not on my friend list, you can request one in my giveaway on the GLINX Giveaway Links Group discussions located at http://steamcommunity.com/groups/giveawaylinks/discussions/18/496880203076033106 . Please note however that if you are on my block list, you will be ineligible for any of my giveaway items (including Coupons). If there is a pending trade offer to you when you request an item from the giveaway, you will need to complete that first before your request will be responded to.

SteamTradeMatcher information:
Considering trades often times get drug out to the point of expiring & SteamTradeMatcher has a report function to hide people for various reasons, I will be reporting anybody on that site that is allowing trade offers to expire, as well as blocking them over Steam to help remind me who not to send trade offers to in the future. Getting blocked for any reason also means you won't be eligible for any of the giveaways I am doing.

In the case of rejected trade offers, if there isn't a good reason for rejecting it, I'll also be using the report function & blocking them over Steam in cases when there's no real purpose behind the rejection. Acceptable reasons for rejecting a trade would be:
- If they've already gotten the badge for a game in that trade
- A trade went through previously that removed any duplicates they may have had in the trade offer or gained them the card that was offered to them.
Whether a user gets blocked/reported or not will be depending on what their inventory is & what badges they have after the trade has been rejected; if I can't see their inventory/badges after the trade rejection, it will result in an immediate block/report.

After a trade offer has extended into the second day after it's been sent (day 0 is the day the trade offer is sent, estimate the second day after that using -7 Mountain Time for the time zone), I will start looking for other people to throw the same card offered in that trade to others who may have more interest, where an acceptance from one individual will cancel out all pending trades that were using that same card (up to 7 at a time if a new offer is sent every 2 days and nobody is accepting). As the saying goes, "You snooze, you lose."

Trades with friends are given a little more slack on timeframes, however allowing a trade to expire can result in being placed on a "No Trade" list or just flat-out removed and/or blocked if I haven't spoken to them in a long time.

NOTE: I no longer recommend purchasing from Logitech due to their inability (and apparent unwillingness) to fix the broken Performance Monitor [drive.google.com] on older G-Series gaming keyboards. If you are having this problem, I suggest installing v8.85.215 [drivers.softpedia.com] of the Logitech Gaming Software, it's the last version where this function actually works properly...

Quick answer to your question, I wouldn't exactly trade for gems, it would be more a purchase of a card for gems.
WonderGamer Jan 27 @ 11:38am 
Steam restricting card drops on games acquired through giveaways or offsite purchases don't help with that either (now I'm spending any free time I have compiling a list of those games rather than focusing on trading); I've decided games that have been restricted in this sense are going to be treated like F2P game, I won't bother with any DLC for them & may eventually make the game primary on another platform (like GOG, similar to the year I was boycotting Steam when they refused to refund the purchase of the abandonware called Fray , which ironically is still listed on Steam after being unplayable for over 6 years, the demo not being accessible for those who already own the game, something I never really even got to play despite the purchase; I only ended this boycott after somebody gifted me something where the full price of that game would have been slightly over what I got ripped off on the purchase of Fray )...

I haven't, but if I were to, I'd estimate a 3rd the cost it takes to craft a booster pack, which is going to differ per game (this would be more specific & wouldn't require additional trading beyond that point). I don't really have intentions to do so & don't really mess with crafting booster packs for gems until I get what I have the ability to craft badges for (after some trading if necessary) taken care of. Haven't been doing much with Steam trading as of late anyways (would have had a few more levels on the 2018 Winter Sale badge if I did), I've had other life issues I've been focusing on & don't have the time to be going through cards to see what I have enough to trade up to a badge level, nor do I have the money to be purchasing new games (or upgrading my PCs so they can run them).

Do you trade cards for gems? If so, how many gems per card?

+rep Indeed a long time friend and resonable trader. Always gives me something I don't have.
