Someone Spent $13,000 To Get The Highest Steam Level

If I had thousands of dollars to blow on Steam, I think I would spend it on games instead. Do you actually care about your Steam stats and engage in all the trading card and badge stuff?

Why do that at all, er, ever? The special Steam Summer Sale badge had a unique quality to it. Using trading cards, it could be upgraded an unlimited number of times. As a result, while St4ck has significantly fewer games and badges than PalmDesert in total, his level 54k summer badge got him so much XP that it made up the difference and then some. (For comparison’s sake, PalmDesert only managed to craft a level 18k summer badge. Still no small feat!)
