Why Crate Keys is so expensive?
Why are they so so way expensive, and if your just gonna open crates for random useless stuff
and it should just 0.99$.... why Valve why???

The key word is random. Keys are essentially gambling. You have a low chance of getting something you want/something good. And the keys are so expensive because it's how Valve generates revenue from TF2. Stop complaining about it.

That doesn't stop them from trying to make more money

You say that as if Valve isn't a business. Every business does this. Every single one. You may not see it, but they do. It's marketing/economics.

Well, why are you complaining if people sell it cheaply?
Nobody's FORCING you to pay 10$ for 1 card

Yeah I know, no one forces me to buy 1 card with 10$
I'm just saying that Valve made 1 card so expensive......

Well dont unbox then. Its always better to buy the key turn it into metal and buy things with that

Oh funny people. "Why do I keep paying money for something I don't need? WHY?!". I envy Valve, they should make some forbidden things for buying only for a few people. Like 5-10 in all Steam, some golden item for $1000. These people will totally hack the server to get the opportunity to pay Valve this money. Yep, Eric Cartman strategy =D

It's because of the rare chance you get a super high valued item. Steam doesn't want to be giving away $100 hats for $0.99.

Because valve wants money
It's that simple

Keys arent necesarely used as crate openers, they are another form of currency the same way crafting metal is. Even though valve didnt necesarely intend for it, anything with a price is compared to metal, keys or buds, they are raw money basicaly and the hats and stuff are the things that are worth money.
