I just don't even care about all these promo items anymore.
As long as I can tell what it does just by looking at it and recognising it, i'm happy.
So we have http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Promotional_items
So far I only like bill's hat.
It's simple, properly textured and has a appropriate design and is somewhat relevant to the time (has been used since 1960 ish). And I don't like it enough to unhide that, which should say something about the rest of the items.
Edit: answer to nerdboy's reply just below this post:
They may have. I'm speaking of personal preference though, not general consensus.
Remember when Bill's Hat first came out and everyone complained that it didn't look good on any of the classes?
Haven't we bitched enough already? I think it's pretty much a given that most people hate promotional items by now, for one reason or another.
I've got to say one thing, though. I think I read an interview with someone (the MNC guys, I think) and they were surprised at how easy it was to get their items into TF2. All it took was a handshake, they said, because Valve thought it sounded like a cool thing. It's seriously disappointing how they put pretty much zero thought into this.
I'm sorry I can't find a link. It might actually have been a video. Or just part of a video. Hell if I know...
EDIT: And look at me, I ended up bitching anyway.
I stopped caring as well.
selling max head $125
remember when earbuds was gonna ruin tf2's art style? heh HEH
weapons looks pretty cool but holy shit they fit tf2 0% at least the lid and max items didnt look THAT different.
Solution: just don't whitelist all the bullshit
IIRC you can't blacklist TF2 content.
You can on servers and locally (ravidge's mod)
Please keep your gay MMO shit out of my TF2.
^ What this guy said in the linked page.
I agree with Blob, but I do like that Pyro Axe.
Do you know what an MMO is?
Do you realize that obtainable hats and weapons, even if they're on fire, have no exclusive connection to MMOs?
I'm not happy about everything either, but I am sick and tired of the MMO comparison.
I think he was saying to keep rift's shit out of TF2.
The Pyro axe could fit, if a wee bit cartoonier.
The Scout melee? Fuck no.
But I do like the Well-spun Hat idea.
You can whitelist as well as blacklist but in TF2 it makes no sense to have a blacklist since you'll ban far more than half the items
After linking the article to a friend...
me: TF2 is some kind of weird hooker now.
them: Selling itself to anyone who wants a piece? Yeah, that sounds about right.
That's about how I see it.
You know for the most part I don't care about promotional items because none of them are for my class in general aside from Foster's Facade which I really didn't like but yeah I generaHOLY WHOA WHOA THAT PYRO AXE WHOOOOAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH THATS SO COOOL I DONT CARE IF THATS HOW IT LOOKS THAT SCREAMS HELLA AWESOME AWWW YEAH WAIT WHAT I HAVE TO PAY $50 FOR AN MMO TO GET THE DAMN AXE WTF MAN AAAAAAAAAARRRRRGH
I've wondered for a long time whether I'm the only person in the world who doesn't currently play TF2 solely to whine about content. If what content gets added is truly all you care about (complaints about new items are quickly becoming the bulk of TF2 discussion that goes on here. Seriously.), I suggest asking yourself why you're continuing to waste your time with something you don't enjoy, and go find something you do, so you can stop making yourself unnecessarily angry.
Sorry bro, but some of us aren't too thrilled with some of the directions TF2 has been heading in. I'm sorry we don't all share the same mindset as you! Anywho, in this thread we bitch about promo items, so if you gotta problem with that, here's a door for you to make use of:
