    These look better than the Halo, which removes the point of the 'reward' (it could have looked so much better)

    Rating the OP dumb proves you're a Halo-haver, I presume?
    That hurts, man.

    Anyway, The Health Subtraction SHOULD be there, although I see many people stating otherwise. They don't want to give a free, no-downside hat to a group that they've stated they don't want to support.

    Good idea, but making it so that it gives you negative stat boosts might be a bit unfair.
    And while this might reduce the rage between idlers and ''Honest'' people (Who use achievement_idle =_=''), it could also increase it. For example, people with halos would start banning people with horns from their servers.

    Why would Valve give you something?
    A hat is a hat, and I think they want them to be cosmetic, rather than having an effect on the game.
    Anybody in this thread who has half a brain would realize he's right. Forget about the fucking hats and play the god-damn game.

    "I use achievement servers."

    "I use speed hacks."
    "Have a ban. You still get a halo though."
    "I use idler programs."
    "OMGG you sux haxxor stfu NO HALO FOR YOU!"

    All Valve has done has torn the community in half, lose a load of players get whiny idler admins banning moralists, and vice versa.

    Valve, you were doing so well.

    I gotta be honest the most anyone ever did to my lack of halo is went "lol idler" and I went ":D" when I got all my lost items back.

    Let just the curse be lifted after a certain date. I want to keep this cooler hat to rub in those smug halo-haver's faces.:devil:
    This entire idea will not work. The idlers want hats, and by the looks of it, even if it means as a punishment. That's pretty fucking sad if you ask me. "Rewarding" the idlers with devil horns is not the way to go. Even if it does have a "curse". Idlers need to stop fucking bitching about hats, and play the game. Hats =\= TF2.

    If you're gonna whine and complain about hats that won't fucking matter in the long run, don't even play the game, because you're obviously playing it for the wrong reasons. The reasons are to have fun, and feel good. Not to have a pointless status symbol among a server of 24 people.

    The splitting of this community is absolutely un-needed and unnecessary, and yes, Valve is partly to blame because of the Halos, but you, the people need to realize that you're also to blame. Banning people because they do or do not have halos is fucking idiotic. Spazzing and blowing up at those who cheated and who didn't is a) not mature at all, and b) pointless. If you really care about a fucking pixelated HAT, stop playing the game and stop ruining the fun for the rest of us players, who actually play it for fun. We don't care if you have a hat or not, or if your e-penis is the size of Saturn.

    None of you can seem to get this through your thick skulls. Idlers and non-idlers alike.

    Hilariously enough, people who didn't "play the damn game" due to them simply buying the OB and playing HL2 and Portal got halos as well by doing just as little as the idlers

    I think anyone who has received a VAC ban can't really enjoy their halo. Nice going, genius.
    Also, quitting a game forever because of some stupid goddamn piece of APPAREL is the manbabiest thing you can ever do.

    Oh well, all companys fuck up eventually. And when they do, they simultaneously destroy thier community and gameplay. Im not recommending TF2 to anybody, anymore. If i could sell TF2 back to Valve i'd do it. Not because of the idler, im sick of the shitty gameplay and horrible community.

    So you're saying that you don't want the Halo to have any benefits, but the proposed Horns make you lose health?

    Wouldn't a negative effects that only affects idlers be a benefit to non-idlers?

    You think folks flipped a shit when they got items taken away?

    Imagine the utter chaos that would ensue when they are forced to take a NOTICEABLE and DETRIMENTAL effect upon themselves.

    Actual moral-high-ground-admins on servers would be trigger happy with the Ban Cannon, and it'd be the equivalent of stamping a golden star on your jacket.

    And then you'd have the Haylollers who WANT devil horns, despite the impact on their game.

    There's a reason why Valve simply just cut and cauterized, rather than stuck a giant salt rock in there on the way out.


    P.S. Since it also is 'only forced on classes without hats', some epic fucking hilarity-pocracy would ensue there as well.

    No, because why would you have any reason to use the idler if you only play during free weekends?

    No i ment that the people who got this hat are bitching that they recieved because they were special and non idled when in fact any account that was activated in the last year and at least played tf2 and didn't idle got one.

    Sorry, but the idea is horrible. Right now, the community is split between Halo-ers and non-Halo-ers, but at least you never know for sure someone does NOT have a Halo. You could just have it off, or wear another hat instead. With these horns, it clearly identifies who did and didn't idle. While it looks cool, it'd only widen the gap.

    That's because nobody actually cares about not having the Halo, or having a hat idler's do not, it's about what it represents. And the Horns represent the exact same thing as not having a Halo, except with more certainty: this guy idled, please ban him, do not heal.

    Id they decreased health by 10% rounded down it should be fine and I'd even wear it as a scout(113 hp won't cause to much trouble) just due to the awesome factor. The negative health should be removed on a certain date as saying you "repented".

    Edited:

    Make wearing it optional, but it is so awesome comparatively wearing it is detrimental for a while.

    Why reward people whom valve intended to punish, with a better looking hat than the ass looking lament? My common sense just got beat up by a horse. Tell me one reason why you SHOULD be compensated. Valve only took the stuff you didn't actually earn. Altough giving everyone who didn't idle a lament was just weird though. A ton of people walking around with the lament just looks plain stupid.

    Just get rid of the stupid lament and give all people with a lament a random regular hat. This will stop all those immature shits from moaning all day and ruining the game with their pathetic attempts to gain attention.
