As most of you may know, the 9 beautiful hats introduced during the "Sniper vs. Spy" update are being retired.
What do you think about the prices? Will they drop or rise?
I think the prices will go back to the norm. after a while... Even though they ARE retiring, they are still the most common hats. Also Valved mentioned that you will be able to unbox them in crates, even after they retire.
A: Crates that contain these items will still have a chance at unboxing them in normal quality only.
Q: What about older crates that have these items as a potential drop?
What do you think about weapons from the past? Will they be retiring also?
Some people I know think that the weapons from the "Sniper vs. Spy" update will be retired along with the hats. I thought this was a dull-witted remark. If weapons would retire, people who started playing TF2 or who are richer in TF2 will have an "Advantage" while playing TF2, Valve was smart with the balance of weapons. If anybody has noticed, being richer or being a veteran player of TF2 will not
give you an advantage. If Valve was kind enough to balance this for new to old players, then the "Sniper vs. Spy" weapons (Cloak n' dagger, Dead ringer, Ambassador, Huntsman, Jarate, Razorback) won't retire.
What's your favorite retiring hat?
Easy question, are you a Jimi hendrix fan and you go with the Demoman's fro? Do you bat people's heads in while wearing the Batter's helmet? I can't decide which one if my favorite hat, I like the Soldier's stash, the Pyro's beanie and the Prussian pickelhaube.
