    Nothing too big ... but I didn't know Crit-a-Cola wasn't previously droppable. I guess that explains why it allegedly trades for hats (at least the Vintage version).

    Green socks for scout, nothing special or noticeable.

    Well, he also gets wristbands and shoes... so it's a little more noticeable than just socks. Still, it doesn't encourage me to buy MNC any more than I would feel encouraged to buy it otherwise (which doesn't mean I'm not interested - it just means the marketing gimmick isn't really working on me). Looks like an interesting game, and I'd probably look more into it under other circumstances, but I'm trying to save some money now since I just bought a new laptop and am thus shortish on funds. The only game I have any intention of spending money on for a while will be Portal 2.

    Small green socks, you hardly notice them unless you are looking for ones.

    Being reserved for mappers who made the community maps. I don't think anyone who had any part in orange_x_cross_delta_tango_12564783 deserves any sort of recognition, or encouragement.

    Actually, the medal is meant to be given to people who took part in artpass contest and it was modeled by Matt/Lord Ned, but none of the contestants have gotten it yet.

    Please tell me the MNC gear has LODs. Add 5 LODs, add 3 items that don't have LODs. At least they're going somewhere with it.

    Nope, no LODs. Why? They can just do them never instead.

    Didn't someone point out that you can't expect Valve to award you with something you made yourself, etc?

    In the thread for voting about which medal to send to Valve, several people pointed out that there's no reason to expect the artpass entrants to receive the medal since that was never discussed as a term of the contest. I know the MM is in the game files already, but I can't really blame Valve for slacking on awarding it since they never had any intention of sending that out in the first place. I dunno maybe this makes no sense.

    God dammit Valve, why can't you quit adding stuff that breaks TF2's theme. That's the reason I like the game.

    I was under the impression that after it was learned the polycount participants would get an item (which happened after our contest began), zpq asked valve about having similar for our contest and they agreed or something, but then zpq made an ugly pin which found its way into the chat room, which resulted in everyone else trying to make a better one, which resulted in said thread. I could be totally wrong though.
