    I got hyped about trading cards because I thought it would bring nice profile backgrounds as well. Now I feel mildly disappointed. Are you planing to add some in not too distant future?

    Profile backgrounds are earned each time you complete the badge. That requires to collect all the cards.

    Ok, so I don't understand how it works. I thought there would be some for sale almost right away. And I sold all my cards, but one, sbr4 in foil (it doesn't have a buyer yet). So will backgrounds appear on the market as soon as someone sells one? Or what. I'm confused...

    Ok, i Just checked the market. There is one background for sale. For 27 euro. :|

    You're not supposed to sell the cards, you're supposed to collect them. You would have to purchase all of the cards needed for the prize.

    The selling is so that if you have duplicates, or already have the prize, or don't want the prize, you can sell them to other users who want them.

    I'm now buying them all again xD. But I will be better off, since I sold most of them last week at higher price. So I will profit a bit or be at no profit. And BTW, the entire collection is to be bought for less than 1 euro so I don't give a f. And I want just the background so I thought at first selling the cards and getting just the background would be a better way, but apparently not.

    I got the hang of it myself. I collected all the cards again, all in all it costed me 0.20 EUR so really cheap. I got Gavril D15 background, Street Cone icon and 90% off coupon for zombie ballz game. Good enough for me, I actually like the background a lot :D

    you still have 3 more cards to drop, just keep playing. If you still get same stuff (which is unlikely) then just sell duplicates and buy new cards. They are all roughly same value.
