I don't get it.
So, people don't like the Gibus. They think it's a noob hat. What I don't get is this though; How does it take more skill to buy a hat from the Store than to dominate someone wearing the hat?
It just doesn't make sense.

More like, "How does it take more skill to have a hat randomly drop than to dominate someone who actually likes to wear the Gibus?".

When a new player first starts, the Gibus is often the first hat they'll receive as a drop. That's why it's been stigmatized as a newbie hat. As that player continues to play the game, eventually they'll receive other hats as drop and the Gibus will be stuffed away in their backpack, forgotten and neglected.

Because most Gibus wearers are noobs and there is no skill involved in dominating noobs.

It's a hat for people who are too poor and Irish to wear a fancier hat.

I can't see why it is so stigmatized. the ghostly gibis looks awesome on demo and heavy when you have the right misc. For example on hobo demo.

The Gentlemann Leisure of something / Full Head of Steam looks better than the gibus on both heavy and demo in every way.

People who wear it apparently care enough about cosmetic items to equip it, but not enough to invest in the game and trade for a better hat or get a random hat drop.

That's what irks me about it, and the mercenary badge too. I know when you're new, and have like three items in your inventory, the temptation to just equip them all at once is big. But you don't have to. You don't have to look like an eyesore.

Only poor and Irish gibus wearers buy things from the store.

Real men trade for their earnings, and if they have to buy, buy from the market.

All I buy from the store are keys and Tour of Doody tickets to trade.

NEVER open crates.
