Potato-Chani wish i could say something like valve are just biding their time but I'd probably be giving to much credit lmao
I don't think Valve was ever really about following trends or whatever, they seem pretty out of touch. They're the type of company to just do whatever they like and if something's popular it makes no difference to them. TF2's chance of being taken seriously as an esport died when it gained a reputation for being nothing more than a hat simulator, imo. I do wish my cousin would stop telling me about how Fortnite is better than TF2 while he sits there playing it for 10 hours a day and begging people to buy skins for him, though.
