Makes a little more sense if you’re up to date on this. Personally I lost two hats today, and I was pretty mad at first… but I will admit the resulting fallout has provided me with some quality laughs!

    Actually that's a suitcase (in before Colonel Obvious).

  2. Mogo on September 3rd, 2009 8:50 am

    It may be a suitcase, but in TF2, it's labeled the "backpack." Also, they totally fucked my backpack. I lost everything. :|

  3. E.S. on September 3rd, 2009 9:19 am

    That's what cheaters get! FUCK. YO. BACKPACK.

  4. Link_09 on September 3rd, 2009 9:25 am
    hey shawn, i'm sure you'd lol at this.

  5. Joshy206 on September 3rd, 2009 9:30 am

    I love the picture, but as for the actual news…

    If your going to get angry, which a lot of people are, don't get angry with the people with the Cheaters Lament. I never used an idling program, because I considered this unjust, but I had toyed with the idea because I didn't have a hat.

    Now… I have a hat. So don't get pissy with me or anyone else with it.

    In addition, I'm not sure about the 'deleting all items' idea… I guess deleting all the ones obtained via idling would make sense, or just losing all items for a month, like the last time, but I agree with the halo.

    Wow, I'm ready to be flamed. But please, keep responses legitimate, not just "OMG Y DID VALVE DESTOY MY ITEMZ?!?"

    Must…resist…posting…'CRY SOME MORE!'
    Ahh crap. At least I finally have a hat.

  7. drill on September 3rd, 2009 10:44 am

    all i have to say is fuck valve. the extra weapons updates were good, but then they put in that random items crap. if the people didn't want to work for their weapons, that sucks for them. i have seen people on tf2 for 200 hours, not get anything, and then people who had just gotten the game and five hats on the first server they join. i had only one hat, it took me at least 5 months to get it, and they delete it.

    I honestly can't see how anything good will come out of this.

    Valve messed up big time here, letting Steamstats go on for months, then suddenly deciding to label the users as cheaters. Even the guy who made the idler said that he would stop the idling if Valve dropped him a line telling him to stop it.

  9. Beelzebub on September 3rd, 2009 11:34 am

    Still laughed at half of my friends list for this shit, getting all their items over night by idling. I laugh at them since all the shit I got for actually playing was from achivements and duplicates of items I already had and no hats. SO HA HA IDLING FUCKS!

  10. mckillyoface on September 3rd, 2009 11:45 am

    So.. I lose my idling items, but the ones I got from achievements are safe, right?

  11. Rikumelenium on September 3rd, 2009 11:46 am

    i love how people are griefeing and not healing halo'd players

    also, my friend used the idler like twice. no halo for him :< thats some bullshit right there
    ALSO i lost all my useless stuff, along with my only ubersaw and blutsauger, leaving me with a shitty kritz on my medic =.= I DONT EVEN USE A KRITKRIEG FFFFFFF

  12. Badonk on September 3rd, 2009 11:56 am

    Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live… at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell valve that they may take our backpacks, but they'll never take… OUR FREEDOM!

    *sound of sticky bombs going off at valve headquarters*

  13. NoShoe4You on September 3rd, 2009 8:02 am

    Well you could have gotten this instead…

  14. Link_09 on September 3rd, 2009 12:23 pm

    If it weren't for us idlers, you wouldnt be bragging about this wouldnt you?

  15. Link_09 on September 3rd, 2009 9:01 am

    Yeah, im a faggot, i have no Cheater's Lament.

    I only idled just to get certain dupes cause i know an item crafting system will be implemented..
    i was right, and was not surprised.

    And now we have these faggots(including scott [yes im prepared for over 9000 -1s]) who have the Cheater's LAMEnt who just keeps making fun of us.

    This is what i feel of this situation, i'm sure MJ will feel the same too.

    Get over it.

  16. Hack on September 3rd, 2009 1:08 pm

    My friend idled and still has all his stuff… Plus the Halo. Needless to say, FUCK HIM.

  17. lost my hats on September 3rd, 2009 1:45 pm

    Lost mmy Soldiers tash and my cooking piot. DAMN IT

  18. Tenck on September 3rd, 2009 2:57 pm

    I wonder if I got a hat…I had an account for the free trial weekend, never got around to buying it, does my account still get nice things for when I go back and buy it once I have more free time? XD

  19. Masterluigi452 on September 3rd, 2009 5:36 pm

    Oh god…
    Don't tell me they put demo of New Super Mario Bros. Wii in there…

  20. Badger on September 3rd, 2009 5:39 pm

    I play Team Fortress 2 on the Xbox; we don't even have hats.

    That should put things in perspective…

  21. BiIIy on September 3rd, 2009 5:49 pm

    Since I only go to Ubercharged servers (Party mode is on) I cannot see my Cheater's Lament. Oh well.

  22. Someguy5031 on September 3rd, 2009 5:53 pm

    Its not the lament that bugs me. It's the ones that hold a grudge after not getting a free hat that tick me off

  23. SexyLegs on September 3rd, 2009 3:11 pm

    yea yea yea took away my unlocks
    but not rly a big deal
    hence i sitll have all my hats and my medal :D

    ps halo sucks

    edit: i mean at least valve could have given them an item that the idlers like us couldn't receive

    ne ways the halo is too bright
    ez to snipe targets
    and the spy gets it the worst

  24. FungiGamer on September 3rd, 2009 8:39 pm

    Wait, so are your hats deleted for using the idler or ALL of your items?

  25. Captain Obvious on September 3rd, 2009 8:53 pm

    That is a suitcase, good sir.

  26. Jetire911 on September 3rd, 2009 9:17 pm

    bawwwwwwww I got caught idling and lost all my items that I didnt earn valve suxxors

    That's pretty much the steam forums right now.

  27. FrEEz on September 3rd, 2009 9:35 pm

    Shame on you Shawn…using an external program to idle. They deleted the unlockables before from people who used external programs to get them (before the random item getting), and now they did it again.

    I however, got a halo :3, exclusive to to the players who did not use idling programs. Which is like 95.5 % of all TF2 players ;p (proof here, in the last sentence of the first paragraph:

  28. codemaster525 on September 4th, 2009 12:28 am

    I actually got a hat for once. This is quite swell.

  29. Chris on September 4th, 2009 8:33 am

    seriously though….not healing people who have the halo


    its not even like its making a point. valve dont give a shit if your team loses cause your too much of a 'tard to just heal the bastard and get on with your life

    its not harming valve in any way ¬_¬

    also, by getting so pissed off with the "halo" players, all you doing is gratifying valve cause at least then they know theyre getting a response (:

  30. Rogan on September 5th, 2009 3:16 am

    OH EM GE I HAS A HAT what now? hats are a piece of shit, they do nothing WHERE TEH HELL IS MY DEMO UPDATE

  31. MrRaccoon on September 6th, 2009 1:38 am

    I have a word that's not even a word:
    Terms of service
    Read them and go facepalm please

  32. hahaha_suck_it_down on September 11th, 2009 8:28 am

    I would really like to see just one Idler admit they fucked up, be good to see a post saying "hey you know what, i cheated and got caught stupid me, good luck to those who got halo's"

    never gonna happen though is it cos they're cheaters and thus lame to begin with, I bet they're the types who used god modes in games then tell their mates about how boring the game was as it was too easy to beat.

  33. IdlerShawn_lost_Hats on September 11th, 2009 1:05 pm

    ah no excuses, if you use anything to get shit in a game via methods other than the program itself and it's designed way of earning you know you're cheating so no good saying ya didn't know. sucked into all who lost their stuff. You brought it upon yourselves. Why the fuck cheat at games and such? where is the satisfaction of being a fucking loser?

    Ok now I finally found the fucking funny shit about shawn losing hats from the VG Cats site my day is complete. cos this is a lame ass fucking site with genuine funny shit posted few and far between and god you see the same shit every second page due to the shawns fucking love of Tags and Categories. Learn how to make a decent website and get some original content. LOL Hilarious when people bitch about losing from being cheaters.
