Exactly that. They are updating TF2 so Tf3 will at least be stalled by the updates. I have warmed up more to the idea of TF3 a bit more I feel like they will botch it with stupid-looking/sounding FemMercs of something
The interesting thing is, I never expected this to become so popular. I knew a lot of people were upset to hear about the hats, so I decided to show it from the merc's point of view. I'm really pleased to see people like it, and that they can relate to it.
He said he lost interest in TF2, but I think he was also upset that everyone was taking him too seriously. But it's been months and he hasn't done anything different like he said he would. I hope he comes back.
That's a shame, I really liked his style. I hate the way people in the community treat artists that do well because of jealousy. Maxofs2d caught hell after he won his category during the Saxxy's because people said he was a "professional animator." They have no idea what it takes to make good work in SFM, my stuff is mediocre at best, those guys spent DAYS working on scenes.
the first nine hats introduced in Sniper vs. Spy are being retired. they will no longer drop, be craftable, or be uncratable in unusual form. they can still be traded, and crates that have them as a possible drop can still drop them in unique form.
I've been at my Grandmother's for the weekend, so this is news to me. I have to say I don't fully understand the situation, as I have yet to bring this up with my peers. If anyone knows why these hats HAD to be decommissioned please tell me... I was hoping to upgrade my fedora...

Well I was on TF2OP and people are selling them for what most normal hats go for, around 2 ref so who knows, they might go back down in price since they were the first and even now most common hats to get.
