    Valve seriously needs to say no to developers when they suggest things like this. It's so yellow that it is impossible not to look at it.

    The bug fixes are nice and they implemented some of the community schema fixes, good update in my book

    Majority of hats and paints are still dumb, surprise

    I don't think hats change the hitboxes, they aren't supposed to be monstrosities like this.

    No, but it's the equivilant of wearing a beacon that says "OVER HERE, SHOOT ME".

    But if you think this hat is "big", may i remind people of the "towering stack of hats".

    The Towering Stack of Hats, altough being the beacon is not as shining as this. So people can miss the Towering Pile of Hats, but not this big shining thing.

    I wish they'd add alternate styles to the Tough Guy's Toque and Pyro's Beanie so I could have one that's orange-and-yellow. Who do I have to whinge at to get that to be a "community-submitted schema change"?

    This thing is on the level of cheating by replacing the player model texture with a solid primary color fill. It's that bad.

    I think that is bad at messing with head hitbox perception?

    I think Valve is running out of ideas. Now they're accepting every single monstrosity that comes their way. Both hats look ridiculously ugly.

    Oh well at least there's a new MvM map to check out.

    EDIT: Woops, misread. Well that's a downer.

    They are promo items, any idea for which game? They are ugly, that's for sure.
