you are right I guess. There is no need for the hate because;
we don't have to buy it.
valve is money grubbing us, indeed. but only for the people that buys it.
Yes, there is sad, pathetic idiots which would buy useless ♥♥♥♥s like that, and valve will focus even more on content-less patches/updates and focus more on useless ♥♥♥♥s like this.
...Thinking about it, hats don't do anything right? Look how far it's gone. People just don't get it.(not counting the VERY FEW set hats that actually does something)If they wanna be idiots and throw away their cash on virtual items that doesn't do anything but scream I'M AN ATTENTION ♥♥♥♥♥ LOOK AT ME and inflate their own e-peen/ego, then sure, let them be. They'll realise someday how dumb they were, just as how dumb I was when I bought nearly all ♥♥♥♥ing pokemon cards nearly 11 years ago.
btw that ring popup is annoying.
I remember when TF2 was a team-based FPS...
