backpack.tf is WORTHLESS
here's a scenario of trading without backpack.tf (or equivalent) one person has a cool weapon, another person has a cool hat, they want to trade and they say that it works, trade complete. Here's the same scenario with the existance of backpack.tf, one person has a cool weapon, another person has a cool hat, the guy with the weapon sends the trade offer and gets turned down because it's not equal to 2.33 refined. Said person then get's acused of being a scammer for not using the trading system and never get's the weapons and items he would like... do u see what this is???

I actually use backpack.tf quite a lot and i don't think so... i understood how to trade only from that site. With it's help i got from 2 stranges to Vintage Safe'n Sound(1 key) and other stuff. I am not saying it is the bast but still.. it helps to don't get scammed..

That'd be like buying a house for a stick. Things both in tf2 and in the real world have general price ranges because that's what everyone uses and that's what they expect you to pay. Backpack.tf represents the community, it doesn't dictate it.

Go to hell with backpack and your illogical thoeries, I'd rather use multiple sites alongside with the market to get prices.

Well, do they all say that a regular weapon is worth the same as a 2.33 hat?

who cares about the bloody market? My point (which I'm not surprised has slipped behind u) is that people who don't use the system are rejected because of it, and as such they get called scammers, and so everyone with the good items avoid them and they basically are stuck without the cool items to be registered as pro by the entire community, think of the Egyptians, they had a good trading system going without the need for quality control

Why do you ask me a question you already know an answer to?

Besides, if you go in detail, stranges are technically weapons so...

Your point is arguing against something no one else is.

You couldn't get gold for dirt in egypt, and you'd get rejected for thinking that. Bartering's not much different than bartering with a common currency, and as far as you're concerned they're the same.

Even if bp.tf didn't exist, most people still wouldn't sell a hat for a common weapon.

I AM one of those people who get abused by this system, I try my best to give fair and honest trades but that scenario that i posted actually happene to me, because that's what this trading system has done, it's made only the people who have played for years amount to anything in the market and left all the others to get laughed at

I just ask myself , Why buds are so much Expensive !? WHY !?! WHY!?! Yeah sure , maybe those extremely expensive prices for a simple misc like buds come from those websites telling the price and ♥♥♥♥♥ voting the ♥♥♥♥ty price until 1 day a ♥♥♥♥♥ bud until reach 100 keys ... That would be such as steal the keys from people , i would say , that's 9,69 £/$ ... And actually those ♥♥♥♥ty diference between 0.33 is ♥♥♥♥ed ... And i call it Pureback.tf , because everytime i see a ♥♥♥♥ty thing it always need to be pure ...

So you're mad that you couldn't trade your stick for someone's house or your dirt for some gold? Again, prices exist for a reason, no educated seller would sell for 2% of what other people would be willing to pay.

Not being able to as easily abuse others' lack of knowledge is not something to complain about.
