    I really wish they'd stop wasting time trying to enforce a stupid system rather than looking at what their player base obviously wants and giving it to them.

    I really doubt things like this take up much of their time at all.

    I think shmitz would have them just give everyone all the hats...?

    I would hate that, hats would be lame with everyone running around with them.

    No, I just chose to comment on the minor point instead of the major point because I hate hearing people talk about valve "wasting time", while I have no opinion whatsoever on just handing them all out.

    I like how valve spends their time adding useless bandaids to their broken system instead of fixing IMPORTANT REAL ISSUES. like the lowering fps each update

    They should add 99 hats and then give everybody 1 hat per class.

    I disagree... don't turn TF2 into a game of dress-up... the majority of players shouldn't have a hat... otherwise they're not special. I don't have a hat... Do I want one? Depends on what it is... Do I need one? No.

    how about make a series of achievements for 1 random hat, can only be done on vac servers or some other way to prevent farming. after that... small chance of ever finding one

    And the particle bug still goes unfixed. Good to see they've got their priorities straight.

    As John Stewart we say: "Uhh, 2 Things..."

    One being that if they wanted to block the SteamStats program all they'd have to is block item drops on non-VAC servers. The SteamStats servers don't connect to the VAC servers.

    The other thing I'd like to point out is that this could just be another "MMO Fortress" hoax the TF2 team's cooked up. Remember This?

    lol just had an idea, it would be awesome and possibly effective if valve gave everyone who DIDN'T use the idler a badge or medal or something similar... :p
