Bring the Golden Wrench back!
Ok, so everybody who plays on TF2 knows what the Golden Wrench is. And I was thinking, sure it was supposed to be a special item and everyone wanted it, but I've watch countless videos of those who tried and failed, and also learned of the fixed drop timing. So I thought maybe it would be a good idea to bring the Golden Wrench back, and crafting would once again be involved. I was thinking it would work similar to the way Unusuals work with crates. Every time you craft something, you have a 1% chance of crafting the Golden Wrench instead of the item you think you're crafting. So.......feedback? Should Valve implement this?

Why should we have a golden wrench? Does nothing when I used it.

If Valve ever brings it back, they better not have it distributed in the same way they did before. That was a disaster, due to Valve employees leaking the secret schedule among other things.

It is supposed to turn your opponent to gold, and the engineer mentions something about you not being useless anymore. Also, I think it should be a 0.1% chance due to Metal Craft reps

Nope.

Limited "editions" stand for something, no?

Not really a chance to craft it EVERY TIME, but the same thing they did last time, but maybe once every year. Or maybe they could make a DIFFERENT Golden Weapon, (Golden Fists I would LOVE too see) and still have the Golden Wrench mecahnic like before: Only 100 can be crafted.

Create special 'Golden Metal' that is made from 3 Refined Metal. 3 of these will create a random Gold Weapon, and there's a limit of 100 of each gold weapon.

*groan* Why? Golden weapons? Give me a break. This is nonsense that only traders can come up with.

0.000001%, THEN I will say yes.

Oh, but alas, the Golden Wrench and Saxxy are both very real weapons in the game. You can even see the players that still have there Golden Wrenches. 80 of them are still out there!

Yes, but the Saxxys are earned. No-one trades his Saxxy away, thus they never enter the market anyway.

The Golden Wrench was a one-time event thing. (Personally, I hope one that is never repeated, because I think it was an ill-conceived decision.)

Old-Alien, if I crafted a specific item and got a Golden Wrench instead I'd not be happy.

Perhaps the Golden Wrench WITH the specific item? When I say feedback I really look for ways it could be more fair

Rule #1 of game delvelopers. Don't ♥♥♥♥ off your fans. Alien never got that memo I think. So I'm gunna need you to come in on saturday mm'kay.

I say just make it craftable by putting 8-20+ hats in the crafting box, enough to fill an oldschool trade window (8 I think) or just a crapton of refined metal. Something obnoxious.

That way you coooould have a lot of hats....or.....a fancy weapon!

Juat my take, like an "end game" that you can reach without much luck involved.
