It makes no sense at all.
People buy keys more than gift wrap. But otherwise I agree, hatconomy's all fucked up. I bet in two months we'll be remembering "the good old days" when name tags were only 1.66
EDIT: My opinion on flaregun: only viable with homewrecker when protecting engie's nest. Equipping it with axtinguisher/postal pummeler, and/or using it for sniping is a waste of time.
When doing a good job and nobody says anything, doing great
When someone says you're doing a good job:
how r i select class?
Being able to pull off airshots a few times and then spending an entire amount of 20 rockets to hit a heavy once with the direct hit. My aim couldn't be more horrible.
Pyros are invincible to my revolver.
You can't explain that.
and everywhere as in everywhere on their body
getting shot all over their body
i realise that shotguns fire shells instead of bullets but it makes some sense
When someone wastes a tag on something very very horrible.
So the other day, there was this kid offering me a V. Southern Hospitality for my name tag and I kept turning him down. And he persistently tries to trade me during my entire stay in the server. When I came back the next day, he got a description tag instead for his Force of Nature.
When Heavies complain about the Axtinguisher. Especially Tomislav Heavies.
When Pyros use the Axtinguisher and complain about Heavies murdering them.
When you're an Axtinguisher and a Pyro smacks you into a Heavy's fat ass.
When you backstab Pyro and Heavy and they complain.
Flare Gun Shotgun issue? Use the Reserve Shooter! No seriously it's like a mini-axtinguisher and it's great for taking enemy pyros out. I don't see many Pyros using the Reserve.
Also, it's kind of a weird thing to hate, but...
I absolutely HATE those "Pr0" Pyros.
You know, the ones who Crit-Flare a Scout after Airblasting them 50 feet in the air and doing a 360° spin.
My FPUK addiction. I'm vastly outskilled by about 50% of the regulars, but all the other random servers just feel less alive.
How goddamn expensive name tags are in metal.
Though, I should be greateful they're not twice as much as keys in metal, because that's how much they cost in the store.
Valve is actully just a bit greedy me thinks.
Sticky spammers who are entirely convinced there some sort of "super pro" shit.
Said sticky spammer went on to call me and the server scrubs, and then left. Good riddance.
The Tomislav. I mean fuck, Valve needs to fix that. Yes, it can be a decent weapon if they would fix it.
But right now it just makes that awful noise when you shoot it and then pause but keep the gun spinning.
Today, after playing some Gmod, my computer started to crash in whole. Rebooting does nothing as it crashes after a minute or two, what is going on. This is a serious matter and it is getting worrying.
To TF2 I got loads of weapon drops and managed to make all that into a refined and a reclaimed! Some luck in that. But in combat I have the worst luck: jumping into rockets, snipers, FaN scouts that are good, crits out of nowhere and all the other bad stuff that can happen.
But something similar just KO'd my new rig. Had to reinstall W7 twice, WinXP twice from a bad CD, and 3 times from other bad CD. My HDD's prolly toast, since BIOS doesn't detect it. When I put my old HDD in, it refused to start (probably toasted as well). Right now I'm posting from some 10yo junk that... Well, it's not junk, it plays my favorite games perfectly, but let's say it wouldn't be glad to play 3D games.
Not sure how long it takes until I'm able to play TF2 again, but meanwhile I'll be monitoring stuff like hatconomy overhatting levels from here.
And he WRITES with dialect, all the time (background info, we germans have different dialects depening on where we live).
This guy, and a friend of him, are total cunts. I mean, this other guy, nox, played a couple of rounds as Spammodemo, said "raped", and then "goodbye bitches" and then left.
Jeez, those guys piss me off and, as I said, those who play their best classes.
I also dislike people and then isntantly go power-loadout, like Degreaser+Axtinguisher Pyro.
I personally use that combo from time to time too, but I rather use it when my team's too bad and the other team's too good.
Why do people think TF2 is all about winning?
Imagine a real world community where the government keeps adding more and more money to the system. It's also the whole reason that, over time, hats have decreased to being worth less than it costs to craft them, since eventually the demand for the items drops off, but there's a surplus in supply and more never stop showing up [through random drops].
It annoys me that I have a backpack that some people would envy, yet I'm not happy with it since I don't have the three things I want.
on the flaregun v shotgun thing I got with shotgun everytime. nothing better than making someone think your not a w+m1 idiot.
also I was on a server earlier that had 23 players
went to Hydro...
dropped to 12 and less players.
next map the server suddenly shot back up to 24
