    Bitch be trippin' hats

    And that's how I got my Unusual Sober Stuntsman that lets me poop confetti!

    and that's what trade servers are for, to separate trade fortress from team fortress. EQUALITY THROUGH SEGREGATION

    Who wants the sober stuntman anymore, everyone knows it's all about the Chieftan's Challenge!

    This is sad because its true. All I do with hats is delete them or give them for something like an uber-saw.

    I just want to play the game, do you have any idea how boring it is to be the only one playing.

    Oh by the way im trading some hats for hats.

    as a protest against this hat-mania, I forged all of my hats into scrap metal.
    and threw them away.

    Remember when this game was about shooting people?

    Someone want to explain this comic to me. I'd try to figure it out myself but I'm too busy looking at my awesome hat.

    I only have one hat--it's that damn football helmet--that isn't from a promotion and 5 Mann. Co. crates…why, Valve?

  12. Kam_Fakami on December 5th, 2010 7:02 pm

    I only play Gang Garrison 2. BITCHES.

  13. Link4all on December 5th, 2010 7:20 pm

    So you're saying there should be a cap on trading? But that would just add another hat…

  14. TheKingOfGraves on December 5th, 2010 7:32 pm

    This isn't what I had in mind when I heard to win you needed to learn the trade. It seems things have headed in a different direction than shooting to win. Now, you take the helm of a hat dealer and compete to be at the top.

    I think I've got this thing down…

    Games are more and more becoming about achievements, collectables, and ranks…

  16. DustyScoot on December 5th, 2010 8:01 pm

    My only hat is a piss-soaked strip of cloth and I'll be damned if I ever trade my baby away.

    (Although, if anybody wants it…)

  17. KamikazeGible on December 5th, 2010 8:09 pm

    No one says anything about Captain Falcon's hat being in here? I thought I knew you Halolz…

    This is why I play Minecraft instead: there are no hats, only creepers.

    You have found: Stainless Pot
    You have found: Frying Pan

    Kitchen soldier, go!
    Guy: Can you trade me your Stainless Pot so I can be kitchen soldier?
    Me: Hiss!

  21. zeldafan8 on December 5th, 2010 10:28 pm

    That's one reason I love Legend of Zelda. Thiere is only one hat and it is universally loved. And in most cases you automatically have it.

  22. Jade Catima on December 5th, 2010 11:01 pm

    Remember when we used to try and kill each other? Man, those were some crazy times.

  23. ZatchZombie on December 5th, 2010 11:40 pm

    Hat trading is ok but personally I prefer….

    Caps as in control points. Control points are a huge part of TF2. Get it now?

  24. FungiGamer on December 6th, 2010 12:57 am

    This comic is COMPLETELY inaccurate……

    I mean, hats? DROPPING? SURELY YOU JEST!

  25. 3K9 on December 6th, 2010 4:24 am

    Lets not all forget to give Heavy a Duke Nukem hat, is the day the whole TF2 trading system falls to oblivion, NO SURVIVORS

  26. Xenomorph42Q on December 6th, 2010 8:12 pm

    It's weird. You see a hat on someone else and you're like, "Meh lame." Then you get one yourself and it's like "OH MY GOD THIS IS THE GREATEST HAT EVER"

    I experienced this after crafting a Hard Counter

  27. lokik21 on December 7th, 2010 9:45 am

    I have never heard of this Team Fortress 2. Perhaps it is as good as Trade Fortress 2 =P

  28. cAlTh3MAd on December 10th, 2010 5:35 pm

    This comic is a LIE! TF2 never let's you just randomly obtain hats. They make you slave over hours and hours of constantly playing their game to find duplicates and triplicates of weapons that you no longer need (some of which you collect just to find that you have no extras of that item or other class item) so that you must smelt them down twenty-seven different times to smelt the products of your previous smelting down nine times to, again, smelt those down three times so that you can find a random hat.

    Then, to your misfortune, you find that the hat that you have just crafted, is already in your inventory. >.<
