Crafted a second Tyrant's Helm (would be stoked about it if I didn't find one 3 weeks ago), and then crafted that with my Stainless Pot and got a second Bonk Helm. Then, crafted that with my medic mask, and got a Tyrolean (which I like my Medic Mirror more than). icon_sad.gif

Only good Solly hat is the Stash.

Haven't seen this ONCE, and I got earbuds as well for the fuck of it and to troll people. Didn't work..

Same, I haven't heard anyone get abuse for earbuds at all yet.

I have heard people jokingly call out "GET THE EARBUD WEARER!" or something like that occasionally, but everyone is laughing and it's in good fun, sort of like when people were getting targeted for having a hat when they were first released.

I have to know what these awful servers people are playing in, since I rarely run into annoying douchebags* in TF2.

*Other then myself.

I haven't played Tf2 much because of the the new UI. I haven't seen any earbud wearers.

I don't see what was wrong with the old one, perhaps Valve thinks macfags can't understand a normal menu.

I'm guessing someone already has a mod out that reverts it back to the old style.

Its fine, its better than the other one, what is wrong with just making the menu look nicer instead of having plain white text .

I really don't see what is wrong with the new UI, it looks nicer, it says what each button does, so there isn't a problem.

I really could care less about the UI, I can still use it, the buttons I use most are more predominant and I spend about 0.01% of the time TF2 is launched in these.. so who cares.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

I don't join servers, I just navigate randomly around the Menu.

But in all seriousness, lots of people care. Its a very important part of game design.

Honestly, I think the only reason people have a problem with it is because they're so used to the older design. I mean, the only real design problems with it for me is that it doesn't clearly indicate where you go to see your statistics, 'cause it's in the "Character Setup" button. it doesn't clearly indicate where you go to see your Achievements, 'cause it just says "View All" in the achievement tab, and the title of the game isn't even there. I saw a pretty nice revamp of the positioning of the buttons on the TF2 forums, but I don't think it's a bad direction.

EDIT: Also, I meant to say it like 5 times before, but I laughed at your signature.

I must be on some terrible servers, then. I didn't see this happen once, but like three goddamn times. Everyone rushed the earbud wearers and banned people who were trying to stick up for them. :T

I haven't played in ages but it still seems there's only one good hat. The 10 gallon hat for the Engi, and I'm glad I got it. 8D

I'm not one to get too attached, I just don't like it (I didn't care when facebook or youtube changed design)

Holy shit, today I finally got the ever-elusive Got A Light? achievement. I was playing koth_harvest_event, and there was a spy on my team waiting for an enemy spy to come over, so he could backstab him and get the flicking cigarette achievement, so I swapped team, waited on the roof, and then when I saw he backstabbed him, I jumped down and ignited him. My life is now complete.

Imagine, you go into an achievement server, and then suddenly, this happens.
