Q22

Recommended Posts

This is a question i have had for a long time now. What do steam levels do? i think you can unlock a showcase at a certain lvl, but im not sure. so if someone could give me the rundown that would be great

every 10 levels you get a profile module (some sorta showcase)

friends with the highest levels on your friends list show up on your profile

every few levels you can have more friends on your list

every 10 levels you get an increased chance of booster packs dropping

Not a whole lot that's useful, but you do get more exposure by being at the top of your friend's lists. If you have no friends, it doesn't help much at all. :3

I leveled up to level 69 for a few reasons:

 

6 showcases, not bad..

level 69... :^)

i like purple

i was tired of people declining my friend requests. often times when somebody sees someone that is level 69 added them they arent going to decline.. so thats a plus.

 

id really reccomend at least getting to level 10.. very easy and cheap to do simply by buying tf2/csgo/gmod cards @ 2 scrap/ea. GL! =)

Once you have received all of your card drops, you become eligible for a booster pack, which is a set of 3 trading cards that may include both basic and foil cards. Booster packs are granted randomly to eligible users as more badges are crafted by members of the community. Make sure you log in to Steam each week to maintain eligibility. 
Once eligible, your Steam Level increases your rate of receiving a booster pack drop:

  • Level 10: +20% increase in your drop rate
  • Level 20: +40% increase in your drop rate
  • Level 30: +60% increase in your drop rate
  • Level 40: +80% increase in your drop rate
  • Level 50: +100% increase in your drop rate (i.e. the rate has doubled)
  • Etc.

Not many people now about that feature, but it pretty much is the entire point of leveling up ^^

 

 

I hope this answered your question well,

Mostly it's for 

A   E   S   T   H   E   T   I   C   S

It's a means to show off, like how some car owners show off their brand new race car. Same thing.

Trust mostly, I trust a level 26 person more than a level 4 or a level 80

 

I'm glad I didn't level up ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

 

Seriously though, the increase in drop rate doesn't seem useful.

Looking legitimate. That's the only reason I did it. Plus a red texted level 111 goes well with my red text collection and profile.
