Perhaps they only get one chance to pick and their computer went down.

Originally posted by DarkCrystalMethod:"Gifting this item"...Perhaps exchanging this in a TF2 or steam trade window isn't enough.You obviously can't test that now with this guy. Once you go premium there's no going back.Also, I never purchased the upgrade item nor traded anybody and I have a speks with 2 people on it. I have no idea who they are/were either.
