LC-DDM not neccecarily true, if they ever do get the trade system up for items then they might sell them like gold in wow or meso's in maple story, will this happen, maybe. But it is a good thing they brought this down fast or we might have the equivelent of gold farmers in there later

I never really cared for hats. I just play for competition, funs, and the lulz.

Actually, that isn't Valve- (spelling controversies aside) tan, that is Steam-tan (notice the logo on shirt).  Valve's logo looks like VALVE with the last "E" in superscript.

Just join a server with the equipment plugin http://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=98651, lets people have the hat they want so they can focus on the game.

Hey guys I got a halo because Valve loves me *trollface.jpg*

Sounds more butthurt then anything else if people are actively implementing stuff to make the Halo pointless and going out of their way to kill Halo wearers.
Might not be you and people you know...  Congratulations for not being in the butthurt statistic.

Those servers should also just ban all other hats because seriously, does it matter all that much? It's just fucking in-game models, you're not gonna get rich for it.

I play on a server where you can't see halos.  I don't doubt more and more will install plugins that make them not even matter.

I'd bet you the first five Hats I get, more then 3/4ths of the newbies who got halos had no idea the idler existed, therefore they did nothing to earn it.

1. Great destruction resulting in the extensive loss of life, especially by fire.
Oh hai. STFU people. the Holocaust was a bad event.
a holocaust is great destruction. Its a legitamite word folks its not limited to genocide.
Such as a holocaust that killed hundreds of idlers. XD

Before the other times when Valve reacted to people using a third party tool to get items in the past (seriously, does nobody remember?) I would've been pissed. I was pissed. .
Now, those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it and amusingly rage about it.

My beef isn't that Valve punished a bunch of (mostly harmless) idlers.  It's that this isn't a fix for the real problem, which is a broken random drop system. 
Now this will only encourage more widespread use of achievement_idle servers, which means Valve never really fixed anything at all.

The butthurt from cheaters who think that finding a way to cheat makes it okay to cheat, then cry when they get slapped for it, makes this whole episode the best thing to come out of Valve since Portal.

Well.. Im not saying idling is exactly the best thing to do, but when semone wants hat I see no reason he shouln't try getting it and idle unless he uses the '3rd party software' but giving the halo is more like a punishment to those who got it.

It's not cheating, it's Idling. when are you dumb fuckers going to get that in your head? So what If I cheated the already FLAWED system, It's valves fault for implemeneting such a piss poor system from the getgo, and your calling ME the bad guy? Grow up.

Personally I dont care about the item loss (lost only three items, which i never really used, and found my only hat legit, so i kept it), but what valve did "wrong", was giving the non-idlers the halo... this made a lot of the idlers angry... ^^ even more than the itemloss

iLol. Serves whoever used the idle program to get hats right. Not only did Valve render thier time worthless, but they gave everyone who didn't a nice bonus. Yes it's a little tacky and it's a terrible hat for certain classes, but that's what makes it great.

Oh well lost a bit, but didn't have any hats anyway. And you get back anything you got through achievements it seems.
I just hope no one really does ban people from servers who do/don't have a halo.

Meh, just play on a server with the hats plug-in. Everyone's happy, and it's not taking anything away from the game. Even us "DEMON IDLERS" can play with the crappy halo if we wanted. I don't, you can see it when you're a disguised spy. NO TY

The word on the internet-street is, some particularly irate "victims" of the Idlecaust are trying to hack the Halo into a giant "Fag!" sign.

I believe the words for this whole thing are "pwnt", crybabies" and "BAWWW"

Gabe stole my 35 sandviches! I knew he couldn't resist my precious collection! The system is completely flawed though, my grand total is 1688 items and not a single hat. If I was playing my regular 2 to 3 hours a day it would still take me more than 3 years to have got a single hat.

No offence Jo, but if you wear that Halo, your most likely gonna be kicked/banned from a good bit of servers.

So if you used the idling dedicated program you lose your hats , but if you only idled you get a free halo !!! Thank Valve !!!

But after the Idlecaust, Valve finds a new villain running amok, Achievements_Idle. Taking note of their TERRIBLE and DISHONEST actions, they decide to make those that use it POOR and IRISH so the DECENT and HONEST players can walk the HIGH ROAD!
At least that's my fantasy.

It doesn't matter what item system they decide to use, people will always abuse it.  People can still abuse this one.  Difference is, now you have to have TF2 running to do it.

in the long run they want people to know not to using 3rd party
apps to mess with their servers. Got it now CosmicKirby? also 400 character limit sucks :P
Pedro

in the TOS it states that you are cheating(both 3rd party app and
communications area) and cheaters got punished wile people who never
idled got positive reinforcement.
Pedro
almost 15 years ago
First, valve doesn't give a crap about idling wile in the game, what they do give a crap about using a 3rd party app to emulate their software's communications and spoof the system. mind you the item system is so flawed. it doesn't give you the right to CHEAT the system with a 3rd party app.
