    I swear if i still had any valuable item left i would sell it to the WH, buy all stranges i can and get back to TF2. I dunno why, but leveling stranges is really fun to me.
    It's something that I call "The Achievement Effect".

    Achievements that are gained legitimately give the player a sense of satisfaction. Incremental achievements (such as dealing 1 million damage over the course of a career) give the player a sense of personal progress as they see the progress bar fill up.

    Stranges act the same way. They track a player's progress with a particular weapon, the only difference is that they keep increasing ad infinitum (or if there is a hard limit, it has never been reached before). This allows players to personally track their effectiveness of their fighting skill over the course of their entire TF career (after having equipped the Strange).

    Having more than 1 strange allows the user to track how frequently each one is used for killing. This can give them a general sense of which ones they feel strongest with and which ones they actually are strongest with. They can adjust their style of play and loadout accordingly if need be.

    Update to my strange collection:

    I won a S Tribalman's Shiv.

    1 more for the records, 10 more to go. 17 if you count the festives.    Sadly those 10, excluding 2 of them, are all expensive as hell

    Give this man a winner.

    And Buro, I know tf2outpost is a trading site, but a lot of people make trades where they ask for opinions on their name tags and what not. I am very much aware its a trading site.

    Leveling stranges is damn fun when you get an amazing kill and the strange level-up too, pretty much icing in the cake. Though in still feeling stupid back when i had all those old stranges that are highly overpriced now, i got pissed at something and sold all them off to get keys, ended up not knowing values and had a really big profit loss.
