There are new games?

Well, that's a far cry from what I expected you to say.

ZING!

So a crate dropped while we were playing tonight. THIS was in it...

Sweet and congrats!

Brainz lived up to his word and provided free hats for a ukick domination, I highly recommend everyone to dominate ukick

Speaking of ukick, this picture captures him in his element.

Funniest moment of the night. I'm sniping in the upstairs room overlooking the last point of badwater. Ukick has been back stabbing me all night. Ukick leaves spawn and I head shot him. "Tboon come protect me, ukick will be here to revenge kill me in about a minute" Tboon stands in the doorway with constant pyro flame. I get backstabbed 60 seconds later, tboon doesn't even realize I died.

Hehe, ya he was standing right behind you with his flame thrower going. I just ran through the flame and stabbed you, then burned to death. Well worth it.

Yeah I didn't even see you catch on fire. I turned around, saw you on fire, gave you as little help in dying then you died. I thought Gumbie had moved to somewhere else and didn't realize you'd gotten to him until after he respawned and was talking about it.

Well done. Jerk.

Sure. Tboon "ACCIDENTALLY" let you die. I would order a full study of the situation, and the collusion between ukick and tboon.

Huh, well look at this: http://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=9567 - http://steamcommunity.com/market/

Is there a way to pull money out of your steam wallet? No right? This could be good for people that buy keys and such though. They will always be cheaper than in the mann co store. It just opened, but as of right now, keys are about $1.50 and tags are about .50c

The steam wallet is a black hole for real money, but then you could be making money to buy other steam games. Valve only takes your money, unless you add content that let's them make more money.

That's pretty cool. Curious how trading sites will see this...
Unusual hats will go quite nicely as well. No middleman needed etc.

So we add funds to Steam Wallet to buy games to generate items to sell to other users for real money to put into our Steam Wallet to buy games to...

I definitely welcome this. Anything to augment/supplant the TF2 item market as manifested by TF2 Outpost and TF2 Warehouse. This might lead to true supply and demand pricing. Remember that economist they hired a while back? Now it begins to make sense. And don't forget the most important point:

Update

Updates to Team Fortress 2, Day of Defeat: Source and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

Source Engine Changes (TF2, DoD:S, HL2:DM)
Fixed a hang on start-up with non-scalable bitmap fonts
Fixed crash on start-up when joysticks are attached

Team Fortress 2
Added a prompt to turn on controller mode when using Big Picture
Increased console font size for the Linux version
Fixed some problems caused by disabling controller mode
Fixed missing HUD sounds for Engineer building status panel
Fixed the Spy version of the tf_zombie entity not using the correct skin
Fixed international keyboard chat and console input for the Linux version

So how does it work? Can I actually sell my hats for real world money or did I misunderstand that?

You can sell your hats for Steam Wallet money to buy games.

Cheap keys. Neat. Having it valve run should make things much more smooth than a third party.

Uh, neat, I sold 5 bucks worth of stuff already. It was pretty instant. I guess crates aren't going to sell that fast but might as well clean up my inventory...

It appears to only be crates, keys, tools (tags, decal, paint, halloween crap) and strange parts. Hopefully hats and strange weapons can eventually be put on there. I've got a lot of extra strange weapons that I'd sell for a quarter.

THIS MARKETPLACE THING IS SO COOL.

I am hoping that they will let you sell your game licences in the future. Even if there was like a 1$ "restocking fee". Heck it could be like a tradeable "rewrap" item that would let you sell a game.

I am excited to move from mercenary to war profiteer. TF2 is now the most accurate war sim ever.

Wow, this is going to play havoc with the trading values of items for a good while. Have to wonder if it'll bring down some prices though.

Alternately, you could take it to the trading thread and sell at cheap in-game prices (i.e. for metal or random weapons) to the unwashed masses. Please?

But seriously, I bet this has been in the works for a while, especially since they hired that economist.

It was probably the economist's idea! He's gone mad studying the TF2 economy! He wants more data! And he'll get it by any means!

Couldn't hit sh*t tonight sorry for all teh bodysh0tz lulz.

First time in a while I've seen Dustbowl held by both teams on 1-1.

Good times tonight!

That was surely unparalleled in the annals of online competitive haberdashery. Great defensive work, everyone!

Also: I've been playing a lot of Planetside lately and it's great, but I have to say: God, I love TF2. It's the quintessence of.. so many things.

Who still has like 70 paints hoarded?

MY MASTER PLAN HAS FINALLY COME TO FRUITION
