    Awesome, fast post.

    This is pretty cool, only thing now i have multiple hats that i like for the same classes. I hope they add a randomize hat option every time you spawn or something i never can choose and hate switching all the time.

    Do we get a free Left 4 Dead 2 shirt if we preordered TF2?

    I was wondering if Valve could do something to convince me to Pre-Order instead of waiting it out until Christmas for the sale.
    The Bat didn't work, the Demo didn't work.
    But, by God, the Bill's Hat did it!
    Valve just made another sale because I'm a sucker for collectibles.

    I want them to add a "turn off hats" checkbox to that little advanced multiplayer options box they love sticking new settings in.

    I hope they extend it so those who buy the game after release get the hat as well. Limited time offers suck.

    Rumor has it, it's a random drop too, but I haven't seen any confirmation of this.

    I don't know why people are up in arms about this, but maybe it's just because I got the hat. I love the blog entry, by the way.

    Grr, so many unique items, I'm a sucker for collectables. *bites fist* "Just wait for the sales, just wait for the sales. Better safe than sorry. Better safe than sorry. Better safe than sorry. Better safe than sorry. Better safe than sorry."

    Should be getting this later. Seems like a nice idea apart from the limited item thing.

    Jesus, I have to buy one of the best games of the year just to get this? Kah! That's what I say to that!

    /me wears his hat... awesomelook

    All this jealously (which of course is obviously not jealously) flying about is a little frustrating.

    How? I fail to see how valve using something lots of people want (hats) to get people to buy something they probably will enjoy (L4D2) which makes them more money. Its a fantastic idea from an advertising point of view.

    And since hats pose no real benefit in TF2 it doesn't really matter if you have it or not, its just bragging rights.

    I'm a fan of one-off hats so with the halloween stuff and this and the medal, the backpack in TF2 just keeps getting more and more exciting. Like its actually worth having a backpack now. I suspect that the answer we got of "this year" for trading will be a late this year or early next year and buy then we may even have another class update with probable another 9+ normal hats plus a few time limited exclusives and then theres christmas, and how can they NOT do santa hats now they've done halloween? so yeah, there will be so many hats by this time next year no one will really mind about the exclusives and missing them, since they'll probably have loads of other hats anyhow.

    If you STILL have 0 hats excluding the halo. You're doing something wrong.
