    So I was looking at tf2stats and something looked different about the front page. achievement_idle was gone! I found it at #14 and when I looked at its page it has been on the decline! Is this finally the end of idling or is it just because of the Demo/Solder update?

    P.S. to mods: This has nothing to do with the idler made by Drunkenf00l please don't lock!

    Idling will spike every time a new batch of hats is release, this is just a natural regression as people get the hats they want. So I doubt it'll last for long.

    Ditto man. All the Idlers have already got all the stuff they want. No point in idling if you have all the weapons and hats you wanted.

    I am sure valve will try hard to combat idlers with these new weapons. Maybe in order to get the unlockable primary you got to kill (Insert number here) demomen with your current primary and vice versa. Though Im sure we would then see Idle_Demoslaughter

    its cause everyone knows there is no point idling today, when you can idle the same time next week and get NEW WEAPONS AND HATS(?) for doing so.

    I figured that kills in the war were only taken from tf2stats VAC-secured servers, or am I wrong?
    The video did make me laugh, though. I wonder if the designer realised how sick and evil the idea behind this map was.

    I see Idling becoming popular again as people try to get literally any Item to craft with.
