Hi-larious. Though, honestly? I idled like 1k hours even after that fiasco and ya know what?
Loved coming home to see a bunch of shit I could smelt down to metal for hats (When I cared for them).
Valve does sorta still fuck over idlers by doing surprise things like the Deus Ex update on fridays, cries of "OH NO I ALREADY IDLED" everywhere.
Weekend Idler master race.
noticed the craft recepy for the original was 1 reclaimed + 2 scraps
first i thought it was 1 reFINED + 2 scraps
guess who just got oldskool
So today I decided to try and get a machina. I only had a reclaimed and some other stuff, and a trader said he'll give it to me for 2 reclaimed. I say I only have the reclaimed and a scrap, so I also put up a vintage force-a-nature. He asks if I can also put up some other things, but I'm all out, so just as I'm about to click cancel he says "How about a crate then" so I add one and get the trade.
Bottom line: I like it when there are traders who I can haggle with.
Just got today!<3
I got a tough guy's torque in a drop
I am happy man.
Found around 5 hats in two weeks.
I found around 5 hats since hats were first introduced, you lucky fuck.
at like 1230, I found a football helmet
and then at around 1450 I found a Western Wear
I've found 3 hats.
A otodiosfjaifsajkofapndj mirror, hound dog and coupe d'isaster.
I found a fancy fedora about 3 days after hats were released and then a modest pile about 8 months later (at least). Everything else was either traded for or a promo.
lovely thing happened to me today
i was moving my level 3 sentry to another location, but i heard that a heavy is right around the corner, so i went to shoot him to buy time for my sentry.
and guess what.
it was heavy medic pair, they just killed a soldier, so heavy was on low health.
i shot two times at the heavy and he DIED.
then i shot the medic.
and that's why i love tf2
The Machina. Do I need to say more?
Not only does it shoot projectiles, but they penetrate and instakill!
A day or two after the Towering Pillar came out, I was totally mesmerized and wanted it really badly. But back then, of course, there was no trading, and crafting was a bitch.
Then I idled for like an hour, and came back to three items.
One of them was the Towering Pillar.
I was seriously so overjoyed I actually wasn't sure if it was real.
...now I miss my Towering Pillar. :(
I was in a match earlier in which my team contained 5 snipers, 3 spies, a heavy and myself as engie. We were getting our asses kicked, my sentry was the only thing preventing them from pushing the cart non-stop until they won.
Eventually the heavy clearly got pissed off because he was yelling into the mic for people to change classes, problem being that he spoke in russian so nobody was listening. (I don't speak Russian but I could clearly hear "5 snipers")
Eventually he just walked up to me and started listing off orders in Russian, followed up by trying desperately to translate what he said into English for me. Thanks to his attempts at speaking English we devised a plan to push the entire enemy team back, set up a complete engie nest beside the tracks and win the match.
Teamwork is awesome, fuck the language barrier.
Of course, it was mainly his leadership that did it, I was just the engie that set shit up where he told me to.
This screen popping-up, who doesn't love it
The first week I had TF2 I got the Magnificent Mongolian, I still have it equipped to my heavy. :D The first day I got TF2 one of my best friends gave me a bunch of his spare weapons to try. More recently I helped my friend by giving him a refined and reclaimed so he could have enough to trade for it (TS Bill's).
Some time in March, right after I had saved enough metal for a blighted beak, I got a Grimm Hatte in a random drop and was ecstatic (I have twice as many hours playing Medic as I do any other class). Now I have my medic decked out with Grimm Hatte, Balaclavas are Forever Blighted Beak, and Meet the Medic. <3 TF2
