Wandumby “tf2 team” do you mean one guy with a split personality order from the dota 2 team

I like to think about the tf team pushing this update after 72 days of nothing, heading home feeling accomplished checking the stats "oh wow tf2 has 90k concurrent players this is cool" "oh cool we made 200k in market transactions people must love that ricardo hat we added" then in like the tf team whatsapp groupchat in the middle of the night when people are on their way home or in bed someone just writes FUCK in all caps

MouldNinlopThe worst part about this is they likely were working on a large update, which is why there was engine level changes and optimization changes and generally just a small update to prepare for the bigger one, but I feel that now this massive fuckfest has happened any motivation for the TF team to finish that update is just going to disappear.
didn't they literally fix one exploit and other than that it was hats and medals and drops? where are these changes documented

steamdb showed loads of engine level changes and string renames, iirc even the crate bug was the result of an attempted optimization change within this update

ShooshYou go into a music store and like this guitar. It has been mislabelled for £200 instead of £2000. You go to the checkout and there's a new employee there who doesn't know this. He sells you the guitar for £200. You have the receipt. You now own the guitar.
The owner of the store shows up to your house the next day. He forcibly gives you £200 back and forcefully takes the guitar back. You have no say in the matter.

You see a truck outside a shop stocking up
the back of the truck is completely open and you can see all the products inside
the shop owners are no were to be seen
you fill up your car boot when no one is looking and then say "well they shouldn't have given me the opportunity in the first place"

They might just be account locking them temporarily so that they can turn on the market and trade servers so that they can do a rollback without people trying to cash out

Jw321123IMO, a rollback would certainly be a hard pill to swallow for players (no one on earth would want a cool freebie taken from them)

But these people took advantage of a clear exploit, they didn't innocently accidentally spend 100 usd on crates and get 100% unusuals out of luck, they knew it was an exploit they knew it was a bug and they still acted. IMO If youre completely aware and taking advantage of an exploit you're also completely aware that it can be taken away from you and that's the risk you take

TobVeccrealistically, how do they fix this?

rollback is probably the most logical option right?
What'd the rollback be?
  • Resetting all inventories to prior to the update? I doubt that's a feature in TF2/Steam so that won't happen
  • Reverting all Steam Market transactions since the update? Once again I doubt that's a feature. It also wouldn't fix the problem
  • Removing all new unusuals? Apocalypse scenario. Solves nothing. All profit remains with those who unboxed and abused, those who bought the unusuals lose everything (heard something about a trade bot that wasn't updated and was scammed for 6000 dollars worth of keys)
  • Making them untradeable? Solves nothing. Profit remains with those who unboxed and abused because they've already sold most of them.

Maybe there's something I'm missing here but any scenario where the hats disappear from the market is one where the abusers profit or go even. (Feel free to prove me wrong though. I might be missing something obvious)
Only possible damage control that won't hurt the playerbase in my eyes is fixing the bug. The hats should be here to stay

they are completely able to reset inventories, steam market transactions or anything of the like, they have done it with dota before and they have master records of every transaction done on steam, through trading, the market etc. it would be straightforward to just write a program that would revert anything to do with buying selling or trading the crates as well as whatever they create to the way it was before the update hit, ie; if you put 50 quid in your account and unboxed a bunch of unusuals then when the update hits you will have 50 on your steam account and all the items will be missing. Valve also has the ability to re roll items that have already been unboxed this is also another theoretical approach to solving this issue. as for people who made money on external 3rd party sites at that point there is nothing they can do since it is no longer valves money and they do not have control over them.
But most importantly there is no way that valve can just allow these items to exist at all, it would just be a massive middle finger to everyone who legitimately owns any unusual because now a rare item that is valuable due to it's rarity is overlooked since everyone just has 50 unusuals, they cant just make them untradable, the items have to disappear in order for the economy to return to a stable state as well as keeping customers happy.
