Some random guy traded me a strange reserve shooter, a strange shortstop, and both jumpers, for the highest price ever known to man...

...a crate... No, seriously, a crate.

Best. Deal. Ever.

Was it just some random recent series, or was it Salvaged/low-numbered?

Apparently Valve's imminent retiring of the first batch of hats is making the earlier crates sell like hotcakes, and Salvaged crates are just insanely valuable all on their own. Awesome job if it wasn't either of those, though. :D

I had like all of those hats, but because the majority of them were terrible, I traded them away.

Then don't participate in trading, the game is still good.

You should. The core game is still fun, and all this wacky hat business is pretty easy to ignore(Though, if you're of a mind, there are graphical mods out there that disable all cosmetic items). The only reason it's still a hot topic is because the stuff that matters is pretty ossified. Hydro still sucks, Badwater is still a classic, and the balance of new unlocks is still dodgy. It's pretty clear that none of that is going anywhere, the game is 6 years old now. So conversation defaults to hats.

Hey, sorry for not keeping everyone in the loop - I did mention I was away for MAGFest, and I also had friends over from the community over the next two days (although I managed to be on for an hour still on Sunday). However, I've also had to make up hours at work, so I've been extremely tired.

I should be on again starting maybe Sunday, or Monday - it'll all depend on how exhausted I am. Feel free to start the server without me though on nights I'm not there!

It was some random recent one, I think 54.
Got 100 points in a single game as sniper, most kills were bodyshots... I'm becoming Sombrero...

Not if you're not throwing jarate and taunting them after the fact, you're not.
