    It's not like Valve isn't making money from it - think of all the people buying some of the items because they went multi-class or because they received a notable improvement in quality?
    I don't understand who these people are who buy items from the in-game store at crazy prices rather than just buy keys/metal and trade for what they want.

    Dealing with traders is generally an awful experience (made worse by all the security features Valve added), and some people probably just aren't aware they could get things cheaper by trading.
    remember that the Phlog was a best seller for years at around $10
    might still be

    I was, at least in part, counting that too. Even if they are buying keys/items to trade, or buying something off of the market, that is still money going into Valve's pocket.

    Yeah, but 10% on a metal trade is a far cry from 500% or 1000% on some of the pricier items.

    real talk though the icon loading has frustrated me beyond belief recently, i will be in scrims or even matches and i need to switch from minigun to tomislav, and it takes 15 seconds for the icon to load meanwhile my respawn is 6 seconds

    i've just learned the position of all my miniguns now honestly because icons arent reliable anymore

    As much as I'd love to get items that I want for much cheaper, the recent additions to the trading system are terrible to the point where like many other people, I'd rather buy it in the store and save a few headaches.
    Plus, what charon said. I had a terrible experience with traders, most of them try to either lowball you to oblivion or outright just scam you and even start kicking and screaming if you call them out on it. I am yet to meet a decent trader that isn't a toxic bag of asses.
    And finally the asinine economy bullshit. Why do I have to give you 5 hats in exchange for 1 misc? I must know why this single misc is so fucking special that almost every trader is demanding 4-5 items for it.

    I bought the Heavy commando set and the graybanns in store for 2 reasons:

    1. They're the only cosmetics I even remotely like, so I really wanted to support the item creators since I adore the items and want to show my support monetarily.

    2. Valve made trading so inconvenient I just don't give a fuck. WH bots are stupid after escrow and I hate traders.
    Valve's ploy worked, they made trading so fucking stupid, the over priced store looks better in comparison to the rigmarole of trading.
    I would still have to buy keys, wait for them to be tradeable, wait for a trader, wait for escrow, at that point it's like what, 2 weeks, fuck it, I'm not a huge
    trader, a one time quick purchase that benefits item creators is better than 2 weeks of valve bullshit put in place because some stupid fucking 12 year old
    sold his shiny gold gun for a normal hat and valve punished us for individual stupidity.

    You did good with the dictator.

    I like how that hat looks, but there are pretty much zero cosmetics that match it.

    Tried to go along with the ghost' theme for halloween 2014, but couldn't find any of those spooky cosmetics other than the surgeon.







    And there's really no better/other obvious choice for matching cosmetics with a ninja hood unfortunately;

    I can finally have the dream Mario set that I always wanted now that the dictator is finally all-class. I still have one misc slot open, so any recommendations on how to fill it would be great.

    If you don't mind restricted items



    I'd suggest the Accursed Apparition so you'd have Mario being chased by one of these guys

    ...Thanks for telling us?

    It's not really an earth shattering loadout and unless you're posting pics to show how it looks for people that might be interested then it sounds more like bragging than anything.

    I was just posting because earlier I posted a worse Pyro loadout and nobody liked it. You could've left out the "thanks for telling us".
