Did Steam games stop dropping cards?

I have constantly played the same games since the sale ended and I got a few cards from them, but since the last 2 weeks I noticed no cards droped at all.

Isn't there supposed to be a limit to how many cards can drop per game? I think you're only supposed to get like an half of the available cards by playing the game. The rest, you have to trade/buy/etc...

Requiem: well, that would explain it.

You get 4 or 5 drops fairly quickly for each game with cards, and after that, the drop percentage drops WAY down. After you have your first few cards, your chances of getting additional ones are slim.

The fact that you didn't feel like just reading the card FAQ, and instead getting confused and inquiring here about something....in the card FAQ

Or even worse you did read it

That seems silly. Good thing I couldn't possibly care less about cards.

Hafting to trade for trading cards is silly?

Well. Okay then.

This is the correct answer.. if you go look at your badges page you'll see if the game has any available drops left.

Notice in that picture it clearly says 5 drops left, I have 3 cards, and it takes 15 to make a badge... you get just about half of what it takes to make a badge from playing the game, the rest of the drops have to be traded for or purchased from the market.
