You can, they changed the wording from "Unlock" to "Unlock and upgrade", so if you hit 15 you'll be able to get the next one.

True is that you can get a visor for 2 scrap, although I traded my 2nd for a refined XD
I can also get a ghastlier gibus for a scrap easilt which is the standard price for a mask. The most rare ones are the GHASTLY gibuses because they are exceptionally few.

In case anyone wondered how does it look like...personally, I find it extremely cute -although the value of the Tricorne will drop dramatically :P
Oh, and apparently they're untradable.I wonder if they're COMPLETELY untradable like Golden Wrenches, VALVe weapons etc. or just need a gift wrap.
Uh oh.I just had a terrible thought.What if the three treasure hunt hats were identical to each other, but with bigger chests on them?

The second one has the open chest with a coin particle effect. I personally think the last one will be a crown of sorts with a gem effect on it.

According to that, all of us who have both games should get that whenever. I would have said right away but look what happened to the L4D2 items a few months back. This is enough for me to pick up Killing Floor again, though. It's not a good game to play all the time but I like it in small dosages.

Gather around. We pray.
Oh lord, please make it so that these hats will be absolutely untradable and there will be multiple suckers buying games to get the third hat in order to trade it and then realise their errors. Lord, let there be asspain.

People are going to be jealous of my new Killing Floor pyro hat and pyro tie.
Do you have to have the game before the event starts to get the items? I want it to be rare.

Also I recommend all of you guys get Killing Floor, it's a double reward because the game is great fun. Too bad the game engine feels a little clunky at times and they haven't added enough game modes.

I'm guessing if you have it or buy it before January 4th, then you get the items.
Which is good for many of us, I'm sure, because of Christmas money. And that the original game without the extra packs is (I think) $10. Yeah, I plan to get it.

I have Killing Floor and Team Fortress 2 so I'm all good. I traded my vintage pyro beanie awhile ago for something else so I wouldn't mind something for my pyro to wear, also I can do aerial shots/airshots better now as a soldier, when you do them you feel like a pro.

Also I'm annoyed at myself with this treasure hunt thing, I have the Ol Buddy ol pal achievement for New Vegas but my copy isn't on STEAM. Oh well. I have 10 STEAM friends and I've played the demo of that game and now I'm considering buying the Base jumping game but I'm still not totally sure.
All I want is the TF2 treasure hat but I wouldn't mind the chance of winning 100 games.

Even if I were rich and had heaps of time getting all 28 objectives would be very hard, and there are probably people out there who are doing it though and will definitely win heaps of games.

I reckon the Hat of undeniable wealth and respect will be among the top 10 rarest hats.

I personally think the hats look stupid, and I'm not downloading, or buying games just to get a hat or another chance at getting 100 games. Most of which I couldn't even get. I can only think of like 30 games I would really like, the rest would probably be random filler stuff.

I can just tell the difference between fun (TF2) and completely dull (Killing Floor) games. I bought it expecting much more than what it offered and now I just can't stand to even touch it.

Have to agree with Oliver here. I haven't played TF2 in weeks because it seems like all people care about now is new items and hats. At least in KF you get to work as a team with other players, and no one is spamming the chat with trade offers or bitching about not having very many hats.

I hate to sound like a faggot, but I think TF2 was a lot better before the Scout update. I know they gave us all of this free content, and yadda yadda, and I am grateful for such free content. I just wish it didn't ruin the community as much as it has. Oh, and the balance, really.

That being said, anyone willing to gift me Evil genius for a hat? Or two, but personally I think that's pushing it.

Steam ID
Backpack

It may look confusing, but my backpack is linked to a different account than my Steam account. The steam account with TF2 on it is a friend of mines, and I only use tf2. Just to clear that up.

KF is great. Although lately I have only been playing that custom doom map. I am the L.A.W.

Maybe...who knows?
Maybe if they hadn't released something as groundbreaking as MANNconomy players would've lost interest.
Although the fact that the community got worse...well, is a fact.
Also, you'd give 1-2 (vintage) hats for Evil Genuis?I think it's a good deal lol.

A few times, I have thought TF2 would be better off without hats in the first place. Considering how far people go at times for these hats, I sometimes wish that was the case. The treasure hunt may be fun but to buy several games just to get the biggest hat is stupid. I'm glad I can still play the actual TF2 whenever I'm up for it. That is often but right now I just want to focus on other games to give them a chance rather than playing TF2 all the time.

Well, there's a positive side to all this...don't have enough money/don't want to spend money for a game/s?
Give hats for it!Then you can idle or simply play, get metal, and trade it for more hats!
Speaking of which...accept my damn invite Raven.
Oh, and the second hat is hilarious.I think this is the first particle effect that can be affected by how you move (if you watch the video closely you can see that the effect is only there when the pyro moves/jumps).
Maybe the third hat is just a big chest with A LOT of coins overflowing from it.

The fact that tf2 would be better without hats insists. I throughly insist though that tf2 would be THE BEST with MANNco. and such but without trading. This thing turns people to trading machines spamming TRADING THIS FOR DAT and never actually playing. I have seen people playing only tf2 for one week and doing only trading in that week. Also, I am not keen to buy games for the Treasure Hunt but if I find out that I can't do anything at the next 48-hour period, I will surely buy one or 2 cheap ones that cost like 2-3 euros...

Trading is the worst thing that's ever happened to TF2. I enjoyed working for hats. Getting to that point where you finally had 4 refined and a class token, then crafting the result. That was fun, and that was rewarding.

What the fuck are you guys smoking?Trading is the BEST thing that happened to Tf2 since they introduced the unlock system!
You don't have a weapon, and have a lot of spare ones?You don't have to wait until it drops, just trade for it.
As for hats, we all know that it was one of the most unfair systems TF2 had.
It took MONTHS of idling to get enough refined for a hat (especially at first), and a big percentage of the players that crafted something randomly for the first time got a Hair Fixative, very probably due to a bug.
I honestly don't see where's the fun in that.I know I wasn't having fun and felt no sense of reward when, after sooooo much trouble, I got a Fixative.
Random drops?Oh please.Don't even get me started on random drops.I don't think I need to say "I got no hats in more than 250 hours of play (the hours count from the moment they introduced hats)" again.
Trading at least made things fair...if you have stuff, you can get other stuff for it.Before trading only the lucky players had any hats at all, and of course, if you're one of them *cough* TCK *cough* you don't like trading BCUZ IT TAEKS NO SKEELL, BUT FINDAN HATS TAEKS SKEEL.
And really, you don't see trading spam in non-trading servers.Probably because there are, I dunno, TRADING SERVERS?
That, and the fact that it's a bannable offense most of the time.
The bad idea was introducing hats that were MUCH more valuable than others (yes, vintage stuff was probably a bad idea), unusual/promo hats/items and the like.
That's what made players fight over value, and ultimately become hat-obsessed freaks.
Think about it.If most hats (excluding the hatless, which is something they should seriously do for free) had the same-ish value, ranging from 0.7 to 1.4, you should just add a few extra items to seal any deal, or in the worst case give 2 bad hats for a good one.There would be no scamming, no flaming, no obscene requests, no nothing.
But you can't blame trading for this.You could blame the community and the super valuable items, but not trading.

Sorry for the wall-o-text.
