    It means you can spot the 'more money than sense' people a mile off though, when they're wearing a hat that's cost them more than the actual game...

    Sort of. It isn't that annoying for a good sniper because snipers that allow their charge to fill will get owned by good ones.
    True, but there's still some new hats you can only get through random drops and not the store. Those are the super rare ones now.

    :p

    At least you can tell who got there hats the right way because of the "vintage" tags.

    Not really. "Vintage" tags are only put on stuff that was found before the Mann Conomy patch. I think you can see if stuff has been bought or found though, by looking at whether it can be traded/crafted into something.

    I don't have an issue with the update. Prices on all the new items will come down in time and it's a good way for them to pay contributors for their work.

    As most of the things in the store can be obtained via achievements or the item drop system it's basically a way for impatient people to get up to speed if they want. Nothing wrong with that since you can do the same via trading or crafting.

    If people would rather pay for instant gratification, more power to them. As long as all the gameplay related items are craftable, tradeable or drop in the game I don't have an issue with it. Paying a little money to customize the color of your hat or add a special name is fine.

    As it is, I'll probably drop a little bit of cash in just to check it out and grab the training rocket launcher just for the Mann Co. hat and maybe a can of paint to recolor it.

    I'm not ashamed to admit I put $5 into my steam wallet for this game. It's treated me so well for 3 years, I felt it was the least I could do to show my continued enjoyment and support. I knew what was going to happen though.

    I put $5 in because I got a Series 2 crate that probably had a 99% chance of giving me something I didn't have (which it did, I got a Shortstop out of it). I had also never received a class-specific hat drop in all of my playing. So with the $2.51 left, I got the Soldier's Stash helmet and said to myself, "Watch, now I'll get a hat drop."

    I **** you not, I joined a server and within 5 minutes got a drop: Sergeant's Drill Hat. So not only did I finally get a class-specific hat, it was another Soldier hat :rolleyes:

    Anyone have a vintage Bonk they want to trade? I turned mine into a Crit-A-Cola before the update and am now Bonk-less.

    So everything you had pre-update is now "vintage"? o_0

    I'll give you my vintage Bonk and a Towering Pile of Hats for that Sergeant's Drill Hat. Add pineconeboy on Steam, I'll be on tonight in about 10 hours.

    Your Eternal Reward slavering noob Spies are chainstabbing their way through teams, and yet somehow, from all I've seen,.. it doesn't really amount to them dong much for their team. They snatch up a few kills more than usual, and never get around to capping or defending a damn thing 'cause eventually they do get caught and quickly sent packing.

    Now my Pyro,.. him I'm getting good with lately. :D I'm using all stock except for the Powerjack, and getting downright mean at reflecting projectiles finally.

    Keep in mind I've only been playing really about a solid week now, but it's getting to be a good deal more fun than I thought it would.

    The Halloween Update is out jerks. There is a lot of new stuff, some of it for Halloween only again.

    There is no question that this game is the best 20 bucks I ever spent. May TF2 live a thousand years. :crysmile:

    I was fortunate enough to be on a server when someone bought and used a server gift. I'm now an owner of the Chieftan's Challenge :) Had I not traded pine my Drill Hat, that would have been 3 class-specific hats in my inventory...all for the soldier.

    This Halloween update is a lot of fun, I love the Franken-Heavy. With the new Mann Co. store and all the class updates in place, I wouldn't be suprised to see more seasonal updates. I can picture Santa-Heavy now...

    I was hoping they'd add Santa hats last year after the success of the Halloween event but that never materialized :( It would be great if they did that this year.

    Hoping to get some time in with the game tonight. Sadly, I'm ultra-casual with this game so I haven't played for any significant length of time since this time last year...

    I had enough metal to craft the Horseless Headless Horsemann's big freaking axe for my Demo, then promptly used it to help beat another Horsemann to death.

    What stuff do you need to craft it?

    I didn't bother with the Horsemann's axe because it's the normal axe with a new model, and I never use the axe in the first place. Instead I used 4 Refined metals (knew it was a good idea to save it all) and the unusual metal to craft one of the new Halloween hats. I was desperately hoping for the skull but got the lame voodoo juju instead. :( Probably just going to buy it since it's the first hat I want pretty bad.

    Also, there is an easy way to spawn the horsemann and cheat via the console in your own server:
    sv_cheats 1; noclip; hurtme -9999999; bot; tf_halloween_force_boss_spawn; sv_cheats 0
    Chances are valve will fix it before the event is over. They can probably tell who has done it too but I doubt they'll ban for it though. It's no fun doing it that way either.

    The axe seems to be a reskinned Eyelander actually, so you can collect heads.
