Is Tux Penguin the new Buds?
As you may have noticed, anyone who launches TF2 on a Linux machine will be receiving the Tux Penguin Item. I was wondering if it will reach the same value in trading as Buds have since the Mac release for TF2

i mean what? Feb 14, 2013 @ 1:33pm 
It won't, back then trading just started and people made the more limited items more valuable to help the brand new economy.

Everyone's trading nowadays, not to mention lots more alts too, so there's probably gonna be lots of Tuxes floating around.

Team Fortress 2, the Free to Play game, is also now available on Steam for Linux. For a limited time, Steam users who play the game on Linux will automatically receive a free, exclusive in-game item: Tux, the Linux mascot, can be carried by any of the game’s classes and traded between players.

It wont even reach a fraction of the price.

I at least expect it to be worth a few keys after a while. Remember, people aren't as adventurous to try Linux.

I would get ubunto, but it sounds a bit iffy, and i don't really want to spend too much time on installing, so would someone give one to me? after you get one, of course.

It said you need to get it before march 1st right?
scavenge Feb 14, 2013 @ 2:46pm 
I'm gonna get it on 3 accounts. It'll be worthless.
scavenge Feb 14, 2013 @ 2:47pm 
Not to forget that I could create another 1000 accounts till 1st march?

Edit: Just read it lasts till 1st may haha. Craftable misc? 1.33 ref max for this. Is it craftable?

Cause if it's craftable the people with 100 alts with trade rights will be able to craft a free 33 hats, haha.

Weird, I clicked the first link in the tf2 news section in my games library and they claim 1st may. Must be their error then.

Edit: Jup, PcGamer has it all wrong. This thing will never be the new buds either way.

Can you give earbuds a Demoman or Pyro style? You can with Tux, I don't care how much he's worth to the trading community. :D So cool!
