i can't believe people actually still trade for unusuals
they are extremely hard to sell

half the effects look like utter bs

they are extremely overpriced

if you compare finding an unusual to a hat in a crate they're not that rare (4% lower chance than finding a hat in most crates)

and they lower/raise randomly

this is why i will stick to high tier unique items and strange weapons

what is your opinion on unusuals m9

amen.

#Expencive and strange MASTER RACE.
I detect a scrub who uncrates too much. And hats are WAY easier to find than unusuals, not 4% lmao.

I think most hats in common crates have like a 12%- 16% chance of being unboxed.
If it's one of those crates that have a whole bunch of hats than maybe a specific hat can be at like 4%.
They don't raise or lower randomly. Better looking hats/effects, paintable, miscs....the reasons arean't that mysterious. And its not that easy to win one. Sure you can uncrate, but you could very well uncrate a cancer hat.

Unusuals have a 1% chance of unbox, (from a normal crate). I beleive it's 2% from a winter/other special crates.

Like someone said earlier, I think someone's mad after unboxing 40 crates worth of ♥♥♥♥.

I like how people are taking this troll thread seriously.
Someone has a different opinion, obviously a troll. Most of the people who buy unusual hats only do it to eventually sell it for more, maybe wearing the hat while looking for a buyer. Most of the people who uncrate unusuals are trying to sell them right away. Only a relatively small amount of players are actually happy with their hat/effect combination and don't want to trade that for something else.

Coming from someone who wanted nothing more than to have an unsual, once I got one, I got bored with it after a few days. I eventually sold it for some games on steam. Sadly, I'm now going through another "phase" of wanting one.

It's a brilliant thing, what valve does. They place these rare hats into the game so that you'll crave them, and once you finally get them, you'll realize that it's just a virtual item on a game. And you won't see it 70% of the time because it's a First person shooter.

When people freak out about them, it makes it worse. Until you spend a ridic ammount of money on them.

It just means you got it for the wrong reasons. And the value of other games was worth more to you than having a unique hat, which is fine, but its nothing more than a personal judgement call. Anyways basically you bought something which was beyond what you could really afford, which is why you couldn't feel contentment. Anyways the fetti nano/and orbiting fire professional panama you had were not exactly exciting, which is another reason why you were not impressed by what you had, cancer hats are cancer for a reason, and people only get them for laughs these days, no ones going to say wow..a cancer..

You jumped ahead, spending on an expensive hat when you did notyet have all your weapons stranged and the rest, game play enhancing features. So of course you feel let down. Most people with high tier unusuals don't get "bored" of them or feel like they've been ripped off, or expect it to change the world you know;) They get them after they have all the other nice things, its just a bonus.
I hate unusuals, but that is just my opinion, sometimes, some people get mad at me, once, some guy threatened me to report me if I didn't buy his unusual, haha. I have 200 keys and 250 ref, and I will never in my life buy an unusual, they are just a waist of money, and I yet still have 600 cosmetics. http://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198059778525

Playing video games is arguably a waste of life, so theres no point saying whats a waste;)

I bought 2 unusuals for my 2 favorite classes just so that I could show those are the 2 classes I main. Im never selling them, and I use them to impress others and identify enemy spies. (Its a opinion not a statement) I use normal hats and stuff for my other classes and havent wanted another unusual since, the new hats/miscs look nice but I cant afford, hopefully I will craft them.
