    Nah, they're all to busy making giant 'FAG' or 'LOSER' words to hover above the people who didn't waste hours on end just for a simple cosmetic hat.

    Awesome pic though

    P.S If you want to start a flame war about that, go to the Steam Forums, or home as you might call it :D

    A little conundrum I like to pose to people.

    They say that idle hands are the tools of the devil (or "the devil's workshop"), but they also say that there's no rest for the wicked.

    So the wicked never have idle hands, suggesting that there's a Non-Devil-Based purely human variety of wickedness.

    It feels like high-school. If you do the right thing even when all the cool kids are doing something else, and... Wait, it's the internet: It's full of people who are physically or mentally still there... :facepalm:

    This is how valve will secretly incorporate factions into TF2. Soon servers will consist of players with halos battling players with horns, fighting against each other in a never-ending battle of tears and bloodshed.

    Oh dear god, it is WoW after-all.

    I would have done that with a little devil pyro and an angel medic sitting on a neutral scout's shoulders. it would amuse me, not that this isn't amusing itself


    My favourite is the giant bullseye, but it doesn't allow me to see cloaked spies

    Seriously though, no need to try and bait people

    I'm curious as to if Valve actually gave the idlers a devil-horns hat that had a small debuff (-5% health or something), if people would still wear them. Would the overvaluing of "rarity" be more important to players than a small gameplay disadvantage?

    It'd become a badge of honor for idlers, and they'd use it to improve cohesion of a cult of victimhood, and make jokes about being like satanists kicked out by a puritanical god...

    Amusing, but not helpful.

    Almost as helpful as pegging non idlers as morally pure.

    Idlers already think they are badge of honors themselves becuase they haven't got a halo. They think they are rare as a player...

    The funny thing is they were all claiming valve's statistics were bull and that the majority actually did idle. and now?

    Meh. One way does make more sense than the other, both from the perspective of encouraging certain mores in a community.

    Devil's in the details. If someone hasn't played for more than three months, for example, I couldn't consider them important in the calculation. But really Valve has statistical data (however they present it) while most everybody on the steam forums has a fistful of anecdotes.

    Not sure about the movie, but the book sucked. Ludicrous sciencey bits, silly claims about ambigrams, and quite a bit of shark-jumping. I think the author did a bit better with his second book. (The Da Vinci Code.)

    The poster looks great.

    Pity this halo thing is so...not going well.
