    I almost want player-to-player trading to not come, just so I can laugh at everyone.

    @booj So they can rage at you, and make some sort of detection when you try to join one of their servers and perm ban you.

    Lol, I checked to see what people would want for my Brigade Helm (didn't intend to trade it, just wanted to check), and I got a friend request less than a minute later.

    The only place I ever get around to playing these days is our servers anyway, so they can ban me all they want. :p

    A part of me wants the trading system to never happen. I can imagine people selling their hats for real money or players spamming servers looking for a specific hat trade.

    The other part of me wants to trade my soldier's stash for a pyro's beanie

    I agree with the folks commenting on not wanting a trading system... spam, people paying real cash for hats, etc.

    However at the same time I would like to see something like that, mostly since I've got a few friends who I just wanna give one of my three sniper yellow belts too. :/

    I already have some request for my hat :p

    If valve implements trading, there will be a very good reason for tf2 players to use it

    I wonder if that also applies to the particle bug.

    I'm looking to trade my Tough Guy's Toque for a Tyrant's Helm.

    I want to trade one of my bonk helms for something good. Either a Ushanka (never gonna happen) a fireman's brigade, or a professionals panama.

    Well it looks like you need a hat to trade a hat, so so far it looks like dosh is not too much of a concern in terms of this new function being abused.
