    Finally got metal for a new hat and I craft a Tyrolean. Which would be cool if I didn't already have one. So I crafted it together with my final Texas Slim Dome Shine and got a... Stainless Pot. Not only is that lame but I also had that, too.

    So I craft the two pots together and got a Hustler's Hallmark. That's pretty fly. I just wish I didn't have to craft away a bunch of hats to get it.

    You act as though this isn't some diabolical Australian scheme by Robin Walker.

    I mean, the dude's fucking obsessed with hats.

    I call the event hats, all of them, "shame hats". They are what I wear on classes that do not yet have proper hats. They are like unemployment benefits. It's nice to have and better than nothing, but you'd really rather not have to resort to them.

    i do love the rocket launcher despite some people thinking it looks plain

    but i gotta admit i am not impressed with the hat

    I need that launcher and the hat so I can start yelling BELLOQ over alltalk and then threatening to blow up peoples' caravans.

    But seriously what kind of monster do you have to be not to like the softcap

    Oh lord, that last game with the overtime caps happening again and again. And they weren't even a 2ft overtime capping but the entire bloody start-to-point cap.

    That was hilariously bad. People on the Red team should be ashamed we kept extending the map in overtime.

    fedoras are basically the manchildiest hat you can own

    That's way creepy. Also, she doesn't really show you her face, right? I never got her to take off her helmet.

    EDIT: I just went and googled it. Don't know why I never did. Somewhat disappointing? But really, don't know what people were expecting.

    I've pretty much given up on ever receiving a hat via drop at this point.

    Edit: and after all the time I've played I'm just now getting enough metal to be close to crafting a hat. Ugh

    it's not like I don't like the guy or anything

    but I've been gone for like 3 months and never seen him before and I joined the game and he was like "T4CT is playing T4CT you're on the wrong team"

    and it felt like that awkward situation where someone says hi to you on the street and you say hi back but you can't remember their name

    I'm in this boat. There's something very smug about taking down a sniper you've been dancing with from across the map. I'm sure people think I'm not being a very useful team mate but... *shrug*

    This chart is cool

    So 60% of players have no non-event hats whatsoever and then some of you have tons of them for some reason. That seems really odd.

    that counts people who logged in once and then never played again

    or who stopped playing before hats existed

    and people who started playing after those hats came in

    etc

    Its not the entire playerbase:
    Data sampled from 78112 unsuspecting players on Jul 17, 2010. Totals listed are representative of this sample, and not the entire player base. However, the percentages should be more or less accurate given the size of the sample. Numerical data is provided simply to give context to the data sample.

    Its really surprising to me that 50% of spies use the C&D.

    And 80% of medics use the Medigun.

    What are people smoking

    regardless of the details of the sample you have to atleast admit that a contingent of the PA community was utterly idlicious when it came to hats
