What playtime did you get your hat from a find?
Just a question

Don't remember. But it was very at the beginning.

Plus, I got already in total, around 10 hats/miscs (+ 3 salvageds)

I got my first hat find at about 600 hours.

Then I found 2 more in the other 500 hours.

I found my first hat drop (the Demoman Scotch Bonnet helm) in the first week of playing on online servers.

And then I basically gave it away for some weapons and Halloween souls because I didn't know that hat drops are rare and Demoman wasn't my prefered class.

Got a handful of hats and miscs from drops since then... maybe 7-10 all in all, plus 2 paints.

I got my first hat I think after about 100 hours of playing.

I never found a Salvaged Crate so far.

But then, I seem to get fewer drops in general than other players. There have been stretches of up to 3 week with no weapon/hat drop and no crate drop either, while my husband only needs to start up TF2, he isn't even in a server yet and BAM he gets the first drop... and he plays for 2 hours and has 6 weapon drops. *shakes head*

I think it's tough luck.

The drop system targets F2ps more.

When I was F2P, I got a few fantastical drops (inclding a slavaged crate) which a derp-ily traded for single weapons or deleted. But my first drop was a Ballonicorn at ~600 hours (right after trading for one too).

My first hat drop was a Professional's Panama, at 900 hours in. I only just recently found my first misc drop, which was a Villain's Veil, at about 1200 hours. Those are the only two hats/miscs I've found in my time.

Can't remember, but it certainly wasn't a long time. I got Ze Goggles.
Found the Deus Specs after about 20 hours.

spartan's helm was my 1st hat after 2 weeks of playing, then i didnt get dropped anything more until after 800 hours: hound dog, tyrants helm, anger, party phantom, and physican's procedure mask.

I have gotten very lucky with hat drops my first one was right after I went premium (around 200 hours total I think) it was the Western Wear then I have gotten Flamboyant Flamenco and that hatless engineer hat whos name I cannot remember. Yes my friend occasionally rages at me for how lucky I am since thats all in under 500 hours total. :)
