[TF2] It's MANN Vs. Machine!

Recommended Posts

Ah.

 

Yeah I'm reading up on the ranks and items and stuff now. Crafting actually is easier than I thought... I might be able to make a couple of weapons that I want.

And I just realized the gloves I got were strange gloves. Cool. Also do people ever trade for crates? I found one but no way am I going to get a key or w/e to open it.

 

e: do people value 'Vintage' items at all? haha.

Yeah vintage items have decent value, over reg items at least. Most people will trade for the newest crate series the day they come out, after that they're basically worthless.

If you amass crates you can sell it for scrap and/or random weapons. Older crates are quite valued though, i think crates 1-5 are worth around 1 rec or ref, but don't quote me on that, i'm not into crate trading.

 

Me and a friend of mine placed a bet on who had the better unbox from a medic crate, he go tthe crossbow and i got the medigun :grin:

 

Also found a team captain. Professor specs+team captain is awesome, specially on medic.

Mrhh! I'll buy that Team Captain off you ): See if you like any of the hats on Page 2 of my backpack (minus the Bill's/Bud's/Made Man/Sight for Sore Eyes) and I'll throw in a key if you want, too.

Thanks, but I've already priced checked it and i know it's worth a whole lot of stuff, people on the reddit tf2 sub are saying about 3-4 keys, which is great. I won't sell it though, I really like it :)

Played for a decent bit yesterday. Crafted the machinima sniper.

 

Also I want a cool soldier hat. Right now I've just got [cabbage]ty generic hats (bills hat, elis cap, ect.) and nothing *cool*. Anyone have any that I could trade for. (though I might not get around to trading for a bit, BF3 beta!)

YOU HAVE A BILL's?

 

That hat is worth around 10 keys i believe, but don't quote me on that, i might be confusing it with Earbuds. I know 2 Bill's=1 earbuds, and one of them is 10 keys to get.

 

Basicly, if you sell that bills, you can buy like 10 hats easily, aslong as they are not very sought after (Team Captain is an example, Killer Kabuto too) or are vintage, uncraftable or unusuals. Genuine too.

 

tl;dr : If you don't like Bill's, sell it on forums like Reddit's tf2 trade and use the metal you get to buy other hats.

 

Edit: It's apparently 5-6 keys.

To be clear we're talking about This item right?

 

Or are we talking about the Bills sport shine because I have that too. (vintage).

 

 

I feel like I could be sitting on a gold mine and not know it lol.

 

And just because I'm curious now this is all the hats I own currently (not counting untradable ones.):

 

Ghastly Gibbus

Elis cap

Bill's Hat

Vintage Demoman Fro

Yes, that Bill's, the L4D one, is the one that's worth a lot.

Gibus is basicly worthless i think, and Ellis is often ridiculed (i don't know why, i think they are just one of the more common hats). those vintages could be worth quite a while though.

Heh, alright. Figures such a [cabbage]ty hat would be worth a lot :/.

 

And alright, that's cool about the vintage hats.

 

If only it was possible to trade for the dota 2 beta :P

I'm not sure if it was ever discontinued. I bought L4D2 in late 2010 and still got the hat.

Bills Hat is worth 4-5 keys (about £10-12), and Buds is worth roughly 11-12 keys (about £20). I know 'cause I game-trade a lot, so I don't want some idiot offering me, like, a Bill's for a copy of Skyrim or something :l

 

And no, Ellis/Frying Pan has not been discontinued, I don't think it ever will. Which is why people see the Ellis Cap as "trash".

 

Edit: Let me clarify. Don't get pricing information from Reddit. Ever. Get it from a reliable source. Oh, and, Vintage Hatlesses are among the highest priced hats (in the vintage section, that is) in-game.

UGH. It's been a few months and I still cant figure out this massive FPS spike drop I get on some servers. best gear etc hardware wise, and it [cabbage]s itself due to the limitations Valve have put (and break)

Everyone gets awful FPS in Source games.

 

The problem with the OB engine is that games feel like molasses the moment you go under 90fps. When I'm playing CoD4 it runs really well all the way down to 60, mouse input is consistently smooth and it's a lot easier to make snapshots/flick to heads. In TF2, aiming feels garbage regardless of FPS for some reason. CSS doesn't have this awkward feeling to it.

 

Valve should port it to the L4D2 engine. L4D2 runs beautifully for me and mouse input is a lot more consistent.

Try having it go from 200 FPS to 9 FPS the moment you enter a firefight.

I don't get more than 60 fps and tf2 seems fine for me...

Should probably also mention I'm running a GTX560ti and 2500k :P. Lol.

 

I only get like 80-90fps on 32 player servers though. I do know that TF2 is optimized for 24 though.

I think that's the problem, optimisation is broken with 32 slots. I run perfectly on 24 slot servers and 30 slot trade servers (cause there's not many people killing) but the two 32 slot servers im ALWAYS on are a total lag fest.

The L4D2 engine is a lot more optimized.

 

My old single core chugged a ton on TF2 but ran just fine with 50 FPS on medium settings on L4D2.

Nadril, your Bill's Sport Shine should fetch a high price as far as vintage items go. The hatless items were considered junk and so the majority were crafted away. Ever since older items became vintage they've sky-rocketed in value due to their rarity alone.

Well, shoot, the Schema update wasn't today. Too bad, i really wanted to try out Reserve Shooter Pyro without installing beta. Also, some of the items are awesome, particulary Pyro's Conscience.
