The funny thing is, outside of a few articles like "Wow, this guy spent $35,000 to have the highest level on steam" (which is more of a curiosity than esteem, respect or whatever) most of the time nobody really talks about steam levels.

You don't actually have to own the game to get the badge, so you could look for cheap-ass badge levels according to average price and then keep buying up cheap badges...

However, from what I understand, the steam sale badges have no limit to them (because normally it's 5 levels and you're done, unless you want to spend extra and get a foil badge). So basically you just wait for a steam sale, dump all your cash into the steam wallet, go nuts buying sale badge cards and level up like crazy. Since everyone is trying to dump their steam sale cards at once the card prices always seem to hover around 6-8ยข each and so it's much cheaper than the vast majority of the badges and you don't have to fiddle with 1000 different games worth of badges to get your levels.

it's not really gaming the system though since as you saw in that video, the guy who did that literally dumped enough money to buy a car just so he could have the highest steam level.

People do bring them up in the context of trolls, but the first few levels are easily achieved without cards if I recall. If someone has a hidden game list and hidden profile/level 1 it's more likely they are a troll account. It's similar to low level profiles on GameFAQs, which often though obviously not always accompany outlandish topics that are likely troll topics. The low level itself isn't talked about, but when it's paired with an outlandish attitude it is.

Well yeah, level 0 or level 1 pretty much means they haven't done ANYTHING to their steam account. That makes you look like a bot or a troll (but I think you're only steam level 0 to everyone if you're a private account).

I was talking about people bragging about their steam level like TC insinuated. Most people beyond level 10 don't care...and most people only care about level 10 because that gets them one profile showcase.

He was making it sound like people were spending money on their account just so they could get a free hotline straight to Gaben or something. Lord knows that Middle Eastern royalty guy probably could afford to have Gabe's personal Cell number.

Yeah, though of course the TC thinking achievements rewarded levels deflated the entire troll attempt.
