lol. I might, but I've never had even 1 of them. My wife's had TWO, though. She got one via drop, and uncrated the other one. She immediately crafted the lower leveled one together with another dupe hat and got HEAVY SAMURAI/SUMO WRESTLER HAIR! It's not the greatest hat for heavy (hell, it might be one of the worst, though it's better than hitler hair, that's for sure)... but she had 0 heavy hats, and it remains her only one, so it'll have to do. Heavy was the last class she didn't have a hat for, too. COLLECTION COMPLETE!... ish.
Already traded away my description tags as well as those shitty duel mini-games. One guy I know wants as much duel mini-games as possible so I'll happily hand them over to him. As for description tags, whoever wants them.
Hahah, I was trading a hat for a hat with Trickster last night, and he wanted to get rid of descrip tags, name tags, paint, and dueling minigames. I only took 2 name tags and a few duels (I can always trade 'em if I don't use 'em). But I can't think of a good way to use descrip tags and I have enough paint already (and more to come from crates at some point, I'm sure).
And just earlier in the evening I was swapping hats with Wiggles as well, and he wanted to toss me 2 crates and a paint. I declined them all. I have a new "no extra crates" policy, Valve gives me enough as it is. #;-}>
You didn't have to poop all over my party there....Well there's no plot twist, alright?
Very well. I don't even remember why I wanted one anymore, anyway. :D

Not bad. Once again I didn't miss a single deposit between updates unlike all of the other users that were once close to me in the rankings. I still can't believe that even though I haven't missed a deposition in months I only have a 58.81% deposit rate.
That break I took a few years back really killed me.
When I really got into NG in early 2003, I inherited a very very very poor-in-stats-by-my-later-standards account... FROM MYSELF... that I'd made in 2000 but neglected quite horribly. I had around 950 exp out of a possible 10,500ish at that time. I began depositing every day, and didn't miss a deposit till like 2005 or 2006, and since then I've missed no more than 1, 2, maybe 3 per year.
My % when I started truly being a NG statwhore in early 2003 was 9.05%.
My % now is nearly 76%.
That took over 8 years to do. We do indeed pay a heavy price for our past stat-neglecting sins.
But take heart, my 9 to 76% rise should illustrate that anything is possible in NG statland, given enough time. :D

Eh, if you like studded/spiked skull maces that are... golden for some reason, sure.
I'll take my level 55 sword and I'll like it, damnit!
level 55.... next best thing to level 42... so tempting to just stop depositing once I get there.
If 36,000 exp and level 55 were possible to have at the same time... I probably couldn't resist the urge. Or at the very least, gfoxclock would have one hell of a retirement exp amount AND level icon at the same time.

I feel taking 10 1/2 years to reach the last level is enough. I'm hoping they can keep 60 levels as it is. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'd rather have new B/P ranks than new EXP levels.
I'd rather have neither, but... yeah, the 60 level system is relatively fresh still, no need to fuck with it for a few more years, at least.

Thanks for the update, Bahamut and congratulations to oblivion for reaching level 60.Perhaps we'll have an active user of the forums at some point, that lives at Level 60.From the looks of things, that'll be poxpower followed by gfox... If he's considered active on the forums to you. :P

god, getting into the top 50 is going to take foreverAt least you're only a mere five ranks away. Some of us are still at least 100 ranks away from the top 50 such as myself. Getting to the top 100 is one thing but the top 50 is another.
Getting to the top 100 would be the exact same grind as getting to the top 50 if all 100 people were depositing 99% of the days in each year, really.
It's all up to the depostering of those above ye. How many shall fail to deposit, and for how long shall they fail to deposit.
Of course, I'm not saying that say going from 105 to 100 and going from 55 to 50 TEND to take the same amount of time, just that they could. Hell, it's even possible (not sure if it's ever happened in the past, but it may quite possibly happen in the future) that for one user, the people between 105 and 100 are such good depositers for so long he has to wait for people who were in the 60s or 70s (back when he first went from 106 to 105) to drop down to 100-105 before he can pass enough to get to #100.... LONGER... than he has to wait for his own 55 to 50 transition. Unlikely, but possible.

Thanks for the update Bahamut! I'm gonna be ranked #75 for a very, very long time.
Indeed, seems so. Still there. At least 75's a damned good #, and a nice halfway point (... well... not really, but yanno) between 100 and 50, the most-craved segments of ze list.

I hear ya, man. I've missed way too many deposits in the past few years myself. Missed two in one week one time a year or two back, and nearly did it again this past month!
