Third "Misc" slot.
Well, I've been thinking about it, and damn, I think it would be really cool if Valve will add extra misc slot. There's some positives about what it'll bring:

First of all, that'll be a great opportunity to make your class sets even more individual and looking more cool.

Also, that means more space for imagination.

And well, there's been REALLY a lot of new stuff coming out from Workshop, and some things are really good, but for example, I usually have to choose from some variants, so it comes out that I have to say "No" to really cool thing just because I don't have enough misc slots to be able to wear it.

And I want to hear your opinions about this idea.

It's probably never going to happen. Mainly, because most things are badges/belts/side items so you cannot fit another one on the ones you already have. Like, if you put a HHH doll, a teddy roosebelt, and a pocket kitten just because. But of course, it all comes down to more slots.. There will NEVER be enough.. First people want 3, then 4, then 10, then they'll want every single thing they can get on their bodies(oh my).

You're right, of course, but as for me, three slots is more than enough. Too many slots will look ridiculous, I agree.

I think it's a relatively superfluous idea.
HOWEVER:
As more items are introduced into the game, more become redundant (you only have so many load-outs to equip them on). Addining an additional misc slot helps the economy, as an item someone's wearing is not an item someone is selling and thus contributing to market saturation.

Also, as new item-points are added (the flying halloween companions, for example; or the cursed voodoo souls), the more viable additional combinations become.

I can see a point arriving where market saturation gets to the point where it becomes inevitable.

I would really like to see a 3rd Misc. Slot- dedicated to badges only. I'de really like to wear my photo ID badge- but I've got a Spirit of Giving with 52 gifts given- and I don't plan on ever replacing it with another Misc. or badge- especially now that the smissmas season is coming, I'm gonna' have a Hale's Own Spirit of Giving before New Years day comes. I know, it's a little bit silly to spend so much money on gifts for people I don't know... but... in my eyes, the Spirit of Giving can be equal in value to many mid-grade unusuals. (The Hale's own Spirit of Giving being 250 Gifts given = $250.00 USD)
Unusuals? Pah... Who needs them? I show my wealth and value in the community by spreading it to those around me, other players who I've been in a server and they've been good sports. Most of the losing team members say "gg"? - or if My/our team loses, some people on the winning team say "great match, guys. We had a tough tug-o-war going there for a while." or something. Yeah, I'll go ahead and open a dozen or two secret saxtons for this nice group of people. Really, seeing some of these people say "Thank you, Eddie!" Is the reason I do it, and It makes me smile to (hopefully) make them smile. If leveling up the spirit of giving was the only incentive, I wouldn't do it at all.

My point being... I love my spirit of giving, but.. it's just making a choice to equip only 1 "badge" is hard when you have WAY too many badges to choose from. Like I said..I'de like to equip 2 badges. (Instead of a 3rd misc. slot = we still have 2 misc. slots + 1 Badge specific slot.)
Even more so, I'de like to wear my ID photobadge above my genuine Merc Medal- with the S.o.Giving on the other side of the model's chest.

Simply adding more badge only positions/slots doesn't SOUND like a hard idea... but I dunno'. Programming and such isn't something I know much about.

Hey, a very interesting idea here. Agree, that would be great if they add "Badge" slot. Some badges are really have high value, such as Primeval Warrior or the spirit of giving, indeed.

No more room on the models.

Unless it was something new, it'd be hard to do.

I disagree, one hat and three misc slots is all we need for proper customization. The hat slot should be self explanatory, but 3 miscs would be just perfect for facial customization as well as one item for the upper body and one item for the lower body.

I don't really think that one additional slot will make players look chaotic. Depends on what you're wearing, though.

how about chemistry set merges 2 misc into 1 so you can equip 4 miscs in 2 slots

Would totally support this idea. I want my demo pirate to be able to wear his beard, Liquor Locker and parrot or swap the parrot for the whiff of the ol brimstone.

Actually, Valve can make a special tool, and if you will use it, you'll get additional slot.

Well, I feel like that if we get another misc spot it'll be the hl2.exe incident all over again, with it enough to make players ragequit from TF2 for good.

(And make DOTA 2 the supreme ruler of Steam and eventually the earth.)

There should be a community vote for this, but better idea, have as many miscs on you can have on at a time (without conflicting), there is just a scroll down list of misc slots (limit:20) also make the pyromancer mask a misc jeez just do it already.
