  1. Sadly you can't too much beyond reporting them. Valve has this weird policy about trading, so that when you accept a trade, they always say it's your fault you got scammed. They will most likely ban the guy and move on. You gotta be always weary of scammers. They usually give you links to their sites, ask to check if a stat of the item is "in order" or it's no duped then ask you to trade it to someone. If the price is too good to be true, always get suspicious. Real traders shark very hard and will offer you half or 3/4 of item's worth since trading bots are a thing. That's why scammers are so common, a lot of people are hungry for profit or making things even and when they see an opportunity after months of looking, they fall for it. I'd recommed finding his profile on rep.tf or backpack.tf and give him a negative rating with a detailed description, so people will have easy access to your case when trading with him in the future. Remember that a trader can get all the info they need on your item before they trade right on Steam or on backpack.tf, never put it anywhere for "checking" or that kind of stuff, it's always a scam.
  2. Oh hey! Rockman X Dive will enter CBT stage in 3 days. Somehow I got in!

  3. How is Valve going to fix unusual prices? 

  4. Well, it's like the image says: 2 weapons make a scrap 3 scraps (or 6 weapons) make a reclaimed 3 reclaimed (or 9 scraps or 18 weapons) make a refined Since the amount of refined is growing faster than keys (because keys need to be bought from Valve, therefore people try to get them cheap from other players that want to "cash out", so the number of keys on the market stays the same) the amount of refined needed to trade (you can't craft keys) for a key is ever growing. Bonus tips: Right now keys are being sold for ~53.55 refined (That's 482 scraps or 964 weapons!) so trading up to a key is usually very tedious and long. It can be done, just not by random drops alone (you get 8-20 weapons per week, so it would take close to a year to get a single key). Smart item management, crafting MvM killstreak kits, looking for differences in prices between trading sites (buying cheap, selling for more) are the ways to get that little bit of profit. Sometimes you might get lucky and get a few refined of profit. Once you get to 7-10 keys you can go for the higher value items like some really popular stranges or cheap unusuals. Really I'd recommed buying your first few keys, it's easier to start with a budget. Unusuals are pretty hard to sell and they never go for their backpack.tf price. Usually it's down from 70-80% of it. Although if you manage to get to unusual trading, you can get a few keys in profit, if you do it right of course. From my experience crafting MvM kits is the best way to get profit, I could be wrong, but that's what worked for me. You can get some fabricator really cheap, since not everybody wants to bother with crafting. Just look for popular weapons (Usually stock or meme weapons are the best) and effects (Team Shine and Deadly Daffodil are usually the best). Don't expect giant leaps in your backapck value, I assure you, there's a tone of people looking for profit out there. Don't get frustrated if you won't find any opportunities and be careful when trading valuable items. You might get scammed. Unique and strange items are mostly sold for its backpack.tf value. The more addons an items has the more uncertain its value is (though strange parts add ~50% of their value to an item) I hope that I helped and didn't drown you in information. If I got something wrong, guys, please correct me. I'm just a guy with lots of free time.
  5. Drop rates are the same. The only difference is that premium users can drop "rare and cosmetic" items i.e. f2ps will only drop weapons while p2ps can get hats mixed in there. source: http://www.teamfortress.com/freetoplay/faq.php
  6. Found Poker Nights at Inventory key on an outside site. Bought it, used it and got all the items for TF2. Demopan set it finally done!

  7. I was goofing around with thermal thruster on payload and accidentally made a vital stategic move by taking out a near-uber medic by landing on his face. Didn't realise what was going on and why my teammates thanked me on voicechat since I died right after that. When it finally dawned on me, it was the one of the best moments of my life (which tells a lot).
  8. Two words: Fashionable Megalomaniac (also goes well with Smock Surgeon.I really like it and recommend it as a set). Proof:
  9. It feels like a small simulation of the market before all bots came around. It's great! And also congrats on getting a nice profit out of this.
