Originally posted by sack1hacim:you don't. you vote for them and then maybe, MAYBE, they get added to the game, but not with the OP stats you desire (VALVe decide the stats themselves, but take suggestions from the community). If you want items, I recommend going to an idle server (the map will be called achievement_idle I believe). I myself have never idled, but apparently all you have to do is log in to the server, then just leave your computer on (TF2 still open and on the server), and go away for awhile (most recommend a minimum of 10 hours, but idling for longer gets you more items). Then you should expect the items to start rolling in. As for actually getting better, just keep at it. When I started, I wasn't very good either. Now, I'm not exactly the greatest, I am a major credit to team :3Anyway, sorry for the wall of text, I hope it helped (assuming of course you read this far. or at all).
