Server wide announcement when someone's weapon reaches Hale's Own?

Its kind of sad to see a hale's own notification slide by the chat. They should be congratulated, the ring does it anyways and it doesn't bother me. And someone's strange reaching hale's own doesn't happen too much anyways. Please?

It should be when a weapon reaches a million kills.

Yeah considering how close my scattergun is too reaching that 8500th kill mark. Then everyone can congratulate you.

Why bother?

Jackasses who think they're cool to farm their weapons up to Hale's Own have completely destroyed the point of Strange weapons.

I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you over the sound of people playing the damn game. This isn't about those people, this is about THESE people that get their kills legitimately.

You do realise that we'd be getting notification after notification because of those farmers, right? (Assuming it works as the Something Special, which is what I understood)

Hell, they could easily just rig a server-wide griefing machine; make an "grief" server, have the admins change everyone's stats so they fire the weapon 1000000% faster, with nearly infinite ammo, have everyone trade weapons to reset the counter, then have everyone spam idle bots at light speed. It'd barrage everyone around the world with pop up after pop up.

Server wide is not TF2 wide.

I'll be lucky if my poor Shotty ever gets that many kills.

I like the idea, but...

Only in the server. Like the old Strange weapons.

Also, bots don't add to kill count of Strange weapons. So there.

No. Definitely no. Every server I go to, even valve ones, everyone is always hitting Hale's Own rank, it'd be too annoying.

Nah, really there's no reason not to, since it is a really rare happening, nobody would mind very much.

Who cares? Hale's Own weapons are farmed anyways and there will be no actual people to see it on the server.

I have better idea. Delete steam account when someone hits Hale's Own on any weapon with proper message:
Quote:
Congratulations!
You just reached Hale's Own rank on Your ______ it took only X hours to do so! Now when your e-peen is bigger, you can do it again!
Steam account deleted.
