YES.

For one thing, we need the TF2 KYM Server, I’m gonna check the thread now.

Also, how much is a Strange Big Earner?

Cheek the TF2 Spread Sheet
A Strange Big Earner is only worth about 1-2 reclaimed metal(s) in Trades.
But If you’re talking about something like USD.

I like TF2, even though I suck at it. My Kill/Death top ration is 6 to 10.

Don’t give a s**t about your K/D. A lot of really good players tend to have more deaths than kills. Focus on capping points and pushing the damn cart. Don’t go out of your way for kills, unless maybe you’re a Spy or Sniper.

@Katia Managan
Cite is right, But don’t get out of your way for just for kills even if you’re playing Spy or Sniper,
A Sniper with a Sydney Sleeper can still be a good teammate just from Assist kills, And a spy can get 30 Deaths and 5 kills but still get a lot of points from destroying a lot of buildings, And there’s even a Medic achievement for being MVP without getting ANY kills. I’m not saying you should not kill players in TF2, I’m just saying you can still be a good player with a bad k/d ration as ANY Class.

Also, What Hats do you guys have. I have atleast 4 Non-Dirty Hats, Non-Dirty as in I can Trade them and Craft.

Deadcone, I recently got this hat from Drop.

Ol’ Snaggletooth, I actually Crafted this hat, it was worth the weight.

Billycock Backbiter, Not my favorite to still good to have.

Handyman’s Handle, I have Two of my favorite hat, both from Drop. I’ll be willing to trade second Handyman’s Handle if someone has a hat just as good as this.

@Notsocool
I did a lot of trading recently, and I’ve got some pretty awesome ones, all clean. Barring the obvious ones like Ellis’ Cap, and the Ghastlier Gibus, I have….

Officer’s Ushanka. Very first hat I got from a friend for buying the game. My favorite hat, as Heavy is best class.

Proof of Purchase. Bought the damn thing a week before it went free. Oh well, at least the PoP is an awesome hat. I use it on my Soldier and my combat Engineer.

Copper’s Hard Top. First had I crafted. I used achievement items for the metals, so it’s nontradable, but oh well. It’s a cool hat.

Hotrod. Been wanting to get one forever, and finally traded for it the other day.
Other hats I’m not including pictures for: Ellis’ Cap, MONOCULUS!, Horseless Headless Horsemann’s Head, Seal Mask, Manniversary Paper Hat, Party Hat, Ghastlier Gibus, Bolt Action Blitzer

With some trading, I also have most of the Heavy’s Halloween costume. I’m just missing the Can Opener, but the Ghastlier Gibus makes a good replacement. Also, it’s the only time I’ll ever use that hat. I also have the Professor Speks because I am good teacher, and the Summer Shades. I also have the Sandvich Safe from the BEST TRADE EVER (Schadenfreude for it), and a Pocket Medic I got from an Ornament Armament. Not to mention I also have that renamed Iron Curtain. Overall, my Heavy’s pretty pimped out.

Only way he could be more pimpin’ is if he had a High Five!, the GRU were strange, and maybe if the Ushanka was unusual. Not that I care about that much.
All in all, my Hoovy is badass.


Yesterday i got this its called Lord Cockswain’s Pith Helmet i’m glad too because it seems rare
After i got it some one sent me a trade request

The Pilotka
Even though the TF2 wiki says this is a promotional headwear i rebuilt it

Familiar Fez
I forgot when i got this but when i noticed it notso got so jelly (i also got the Eternal Reward and the L’Etranger which means i got all the items in the Saharan Spy set)

Stately Steel Toe
I got this a long time ago and for some reason just noticed that it was a level 74 hat

You’re right, I guess I just need to stop thinking of TF2 like every other shooter.

I’m just saying but you kind of just thought of this now..?

And don’t worry about sucking, you are supposed to suck when you first play. Everyone does because, yeah, this is not your average shooter game.
And to be honest, a 3:5 k/d ratio ( > 2012 , not simplifying fractions) is actually really good. When I first started I literally had a 1:10 k/d for the first few days of playing time. Then you just…get good. I can speak on behalf of multiple people I have introduced the game to. You suck, then suddenly you have an awesome match and then just…do better from there on.
And no one really cares if you’re bad because a single person doesn’t really hold up the team (unless you’re a Medic, then everyone loves you). Plus there aren’t any stupid profiles that you can be paranoid over people looking at your horrible k/d when you first start out.

LOLOLO TF2 IS 4 CASUALS OLOLO

By the way, in this article, there’s talk that Valve announced a new secret project that’s something new, any thoughts what that could be?

Obviously, it’s a huge new rendering engine that can have 24 players playing on a hat/map hybrid while 24 players wearing the hat/maps will also play a game of TF2. So basically, on one server there can be 25 matches of TF2 at any one time.

I haven’t played in a while unfortunately. Just curious, since the Sandvich alt nerf, do people actually use shotguns as heavy now? And have I missed out on any new weapon adds since the engie/pyro update?

No, Heavies still don’t use the shotgun. It’s not as big a nerf as you’d think. It also encourages players to give Sandviches to their Medics, thankfully.
Also, you’ve missed… two or three, I think.
Added since the Pyro/Engie update: the Wrap Assassin, the Holiday Punch, and the Spy-cicle.
There haven’t been any major updates since Australian Christmas 2011.

I’ve already seen those weapons. I think they came out at the same time as the engie/pyro update, or at least within a very slim timeframe.

Glad to see the nerf encouraged teamwork at least. Still kinda sucks that people totally overlook the shotgun. Works great with the Brass Beast. Oh well. As much as I dislike it when good weapons go under-rated, I suppose it’s for the best. I hear Brass Beast goes for as low as one Ref.! >:]

>brass beast

Dude, never spend more than two scrap for a weapon unless it’s been out for less than three weeks.
Also, the Brass Beast is pathetic.

Then i guess i should’ve not crafted my Horseless Headless Horsemann’s Headtaker

Recently found out that my Summer Shades are apparently worth 5 keys.
Definitely not trading that now. It’s like the only item of superiority that I have since Cloud mysteriously erases my vintage hats from my backpack and Valve never gave me my season 5 Highlander medal :I

GIANTDAD wrote:

Aww man, you guy’s have so many cool hats! I don’t even have one yet….

Some of the older hats are real cheap now in terms of metal. if you have 2-3 refined metal sitting around, you can trade it for a decent hat online.

For example, the Sniper’s Desert Marauder and other “Craft Hats” go for about 1.66 Refined metal (That’s one refined+2 reclaimed metal)

So smelt your extra junk weapons and trade ’em for hats!

That’s different. The only way to get that weapon is by crafting.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT.
Did you paint them?

God i want TF2. Dunno if i can get it or not. i only get 10g of internet a month, so i question, How many gigabytes or kilobytes does Steam itself require for download, and how many Kb does TF2 take up?

>Asking about Kilobytes and Gigabytes
>skips megabytes

TF2 overall is around 8 gigs to download, give or take. As for your internet limitations, 10 g should be enough; TF2 uses 105 megs an hour.

Also, LATEST UPDATE:

Updated the Frying Pan so it can also be equipped by the Scout, Sniper, Medic, Heavy, and Pyro

I used to have a Frying Pan…
