I have two crate 41's and F2p account where I can't trade them, or even gift them.

I might just buy one key and get a premium account for trading and no more problems with my backpack being full.

May as well buy 2 keys if you're going to at all, £4 is the minimum amount you can add to your steam wallet.

And then don't open the crates. Trade them for something better.

I've recently seen a lot of f2p accounts with a lot of tools and rare crates, and since I'm 100% sure that new accounts drop hats more often than older accounts, I'm going to make an experiment and see if f2p accounts drop tools more often than older accounts, since there's no way they'll be able to get hats via drops.

I think the drop system works like a basic leveling system in an RPG, where it is easier to achieve a new level when you are a new player.

I had a Hallmark drop in my first week of playing, and nothing since then. No tools, no hats in 300 hours or so.

That's because new players get hats more often. I have 3 idling accounts and all of them have had about 2 hat drops in the first month, and then nothing after that.

And it's done. I put Shrimpchris as my "reference" because he gave me a Cloak and dagger when I just started. I'm still searching for a YER, but this time I can trade unlike a F2p bum :P (link to my steam inventory)

I'm going to try just waiting and letting the crates sit, they could go up in value one they stop dropping, unless someone offers me a good deal on them.

They most likely will, since the strange parts isn't in the store or in any other crates.... yet.

Also, did trading become fashionable again?Because that's almost all you've been talking about in the last pages..
I remember that, when trading was implemented, we talked about nothing else for about 150 pages.And 50 of them were just my posts :P

There isn't really much going on in the tf2 world right now. So trading is the only subject at the moment.

Well, trading's not the only thing that's out of hand. So is the raffling side at the moment. Some guy makes multiple single hat raffles, gets banned for it, and now people are calling foul.

Also, I won some stuff last week to the point where I'm 2 scrap away from crafting a hat.

Never craft a hat with 3 refined. You can buy most hats for less than that anyway, and if you REALLY want to craft you can buy two shit hats for less than 1.33 each.

Well, went with this advice, just to speed up the inevitable.

Is it best to craft metal from duplicate items or is it better to keep the duplicate items to use for crafting any new weapons themselves...
I use to craft hats because I would pick up most weapons by the drop system, however I have started crafting weapons as well, and actually have been doing quite well.

You know what is weird? The drop system used to give me weapons, when I crafted hats. and now that I started crafting weapons, the drop system now gives me hats.... I wonder if there is any pattern or if its just a coincidence...

I usually save all my weapons, and when some new weapons are released I craft them, and then I craft the remaining weapons into refined and then I start over.

I don't think that's the case. Since the drop system doesn't give me any hats.

Team Fortress 2 is one of the few FPS games that I've played, let alone like. I received the game as a gift not long before it became free. I'm not really the best TF2 player, but I still manage to have fun.

Steam ID: shadowaurion (Current Alias: The G-Man)
Best classes: Soldier and Pyro
Favorite classes: Everyone except Demoman, although I enjoy messing around as Demoknight.

My dream is to become an expert Spy; sadly, every single game that I join always has 1 or more spies. As a result, I don't play him too often. :/

God damn it.My Steam account was hacked.And I didn't even have Steam Guard enabled, but only because Steam would tell me to "try again later" every time I tried to activate it.
Anyway, I just want to know if what I did is enough: I sent an email to Steam Support on the "Hijacked account" section, and sent them the Paypal details of my last transaction, billing name, adress etc., like they asked.
The good news is that the idiot only took my account and password, so as long as Support acts quickly I should be able to get my account back.I hope they give high priority to messages about lost accounts though..

The item schema got updated last night, and it added a "mysterious bundle". A lot of people think it's a super monday night combat promo. I really hope that they're right, since some of the items in smnc looks really really awesome.

I don't normally care when someone scams other people, but when they boast about it, It gets a little sickening.

It's basically all I do in the game these days. Getting the trade completed message is more satisfying than any kill or game win.

I need help.

Retroactive jewing hurts, man.

I sold a strange kritz for like 8 keys, too.

Also not jewing, the guy made the offer, not me, but I feel I got a pretty good deal.
