no ones begging u deserve that hat more than the people that got it originally

surely this is fucked up like lunacide said his hat is 280 keys for basically free thats not gonna fuck the economy? lol wat are they smoking

how do you not come to the conclusion that making them all untradable is just a better option for preserving the economy and making things go smoothly? i dont even trade but thats just dumb and i cant see trader mains rly enjoying this whatsoever

i mean maybe it wont because i think trader mains dont really have brains to begin with so maybe it wont effect anything considering they're content with instantly spending 100s on team captains thar the previous day went for as little as £20 they just lost the plot i guess

ridiculous if those of us who didn’t exploit get nothing... they’re basically encouraging everyone to exploit their next bug. then again what can you expect from this joke of a company anymore?

ValveA few of you were concerned that you had done something wrong by opening a bugged crate, and proceeded to delete your hats. While we appreciate the concern, you didn't do anything wrong, so hats from bugged crates deleted before the tradable date will be restored to your accounts with the same restrictions described above.

B4nny is going to be very confused when a bunch of unusuals just show up in his inventory again.

I'm lacking in general knowledge and I feel like I'm turbo-theorycrafting, but this solution seems kinda strange in the long run:

  • everyone keeps every single unusual, taking thousands of potential buyers out of the market
  • both the steam market and third party sellers (scrap, backpack, stn) suffer from the reduced demand
  • whatever percentage of lan/tournament/season prize pool supplied by resell markets drops, unless geel feels especially generous
  • valves own quarterly profits from the Mann co store and market transactions drop, making untangling spaghetti code to keep the lights on even less worthwhile
  • valve keeps every penny they profited from the mistake

Correct me anywhere if I'm wrong, but doesn't this feel like the closest thing to valve physically cashing out all their tf2 chips? They raked in thousands now and nearly butchered the last thing keeping the game running monetarily. Like, we all know they're no strangers to both wholesale slaughtering their virtual economies and not caring about tf2's welfare, but doing next to nothing about the unusuals really does seem like the "welp we tried" solution to the problem.

Additionally, that refund policy is actually pointless. No one in their right mind is gonna return a high tier unusual for the ~$10 in steam funds they spent on it.

Yeah seriously does anyone really care that their unusuals are untradeable? They're in their inventory for essentially free. That's what matters. When you try to get an unusual from someone be it trading or purchasing, the end goal is getting it in your inventory so you can fucking wear it.
