Personal status update

Hey everybody,   Most of you probably not even know who I am. I've been on the backpack.tf forum since the beginning, and stayed on it for a few years. There are several reasons why I don't get involved into the forum and/or discord anymore.   First off, I got graduated. This means that I currently have a job and most of the time I'm working in a foreign country. This means no more TF2 for me, because the hotel WIFI is always shitty. I also doubt that my laptop could handle the game.   Secondly, I was already out of the trading game for a longer time. The feeling of making good trades and gaining profit has disappeared, apparently. I never thought that would ever happen.   And finally, I discovered other games to play. Yes, I am talking about Fortnite, but then again, I cannot play it unless I am home. I also play Tekken 7, it's the best game in the world, because there are also hats. And we all know hats are important, hats are life.  But seriously, I play TF2 for only about an hour a week while I'm home.     I hope you all have a great time and never give up on your dreams.      Kisses, hugs and much love.   ∞Ramses   PS. I still have a lot of Puddingkip-crafted stuff, so I might give it away in the future. We'll see... That stuff is really really valuable.

How To Get Steam Premium/Credit: A Guide

I just helped my nephew get steam premium - to add friends etc - and thought i'd just share this with some people who may not have premium. So, these are possible methods for anyone, all ages, can be done without credit cards. AND do not need your steam-related ID or any info, just make a fake email account for this and it'll still work since it gives steam codes.   For TF2 Premium: 1) Get a friend of yours who trade/already have funds in their steam account to gift you an upgrade to premium item from the store, and pay him back the cost or just get it as a gift.  This is the only way to get in through in-game item, the rest below CAN get you steam & TF2 premium, if you use steam funds to buy an item from tf2 store (any cost)   Steam Premium using $ cash: 1) Buy a gift card from the store A list of where you can purchase Steam Gift Cards (Singapore) 1. Game Stores Game stores are the most likely to sell Steam Gift Cards, although at a price premium. Visit your closest shopping centre and you’ll likely find one that sells Steam Gift Cards. 2.LAN Shops Local LAN Shops are likely to sell Steam Gift Cards. Prices are comparable to those offered at Gaming Stores. 3. Online stores/selling platforms Online sellers are generally less trustable but you are likely to find cheaper prices from here than the other alternatives. You could purchase gift cards from sellers on platforms like Carousel and pay them in cash. 4. Debit Cards This is the best option due to convenience. You can easily get a Debit Card from the bank for free and use it to purchase Steam gift cards/codes online (or direct from Steam).    Steam Premium without using cash: 1) Ebonus.gg (get 50 coins for clicking tt link, and making an account) 1. Set up account 2. Confirm account and simply start doing surveys - earns more coins 3. If you wish to watch videos to earn coins (most slack), i would suggest you download tampermonkey and then search for ebonus.gg scripts to use so that it will auto click next video with the tab open. 4. Earn enough coins to convert coins to steam credit - this may take a few days because surveys may be drained out etc, but it's free to earn and you only need $5 and then purchase an in-game item for premium 5. If the game code or reward you want is not offered, you can send a ticket in for it to be offered on the site. The response is often within 24hours, flexible and rather friendly! advice: always set up your profile, i.e know exactly what are you income level, age, industry, and STICK TO IT for surveys (some may tell you they are looking for anth profile and allow you to continue, i'd suggest altering only at this point), only do surveys that reap larger rewards   2) Points Prizes 1. Really easy to set up account, just enter email 2. Same thing as above, uses a different pricing system (i.e coins/points to real $ comparison differs)   I think those 2 sites are the more popular and legit ones (tried and tested!), you may want to just see what other game cards/codes that the two sites offer and then focus on the site that has what you want or you feel is more comfortable using. Good luck prepping for your Christmas Gifts!   *Comment below if you're interested in how to effectively earn coins for ebonus.gg cos i kinda learnt the trick already and have 20k coins, will add anth guide!

Remember me?

Yo, shoutouts to anyone that remembers me all these years ago LOL.    It's been awhile, or rather sup to those that have heard of me for the first time. I hope BP.TF has been flourishing well and that the newer generations have been outclassing the old guards like me. I just felt like posting random things that I have been reminiscing about.    I'm not sure if the demographics really changed much in this website, but I remember back when I around, fairly good amount of people were in their high school years or below 18.  I and probably many others that were top contributors had so much free times in our hands that we would spend absurd amounts of time on arguing over prices of a few pixels. Idk if I reflected my maturity during my years of activity, but I definitely was still in high school at my prime. I remember wanting to be a mod so badly, but I couldn't for awhile because I wasn't old enough. In fact even when I retired, I actually still wasn't old enough to be a mod. Now I am, but damn there were some things...that I quite don't know what to express.   First off, maturity. I was told that I was pretty mature for how I expressed things, but upon further evaluation, I definitely had holes. While I addressed many things in a professional and a matter-of-fact way, I definitely got provoked easily. If I felt like I got attacked or got emotional, then I wouldn't hesitate venting or saying some things that I regret. Restraint is definitely a skill that potentially gets easier as you age, and that has definitely applied to me. I cringe at some things I said as a result of certain things, but at the end of the day I do appreciate all the warnings cleverpun has given me as a learning lesson. Is cleverpun still around? Clever was such a good mod in retrospect heh.   Another thing was that overall, I was a quantity over quality guy in making suggestions. Ok sure, I actually put some effort for my quantity unlike some people (d0 and Pyroman comes to mind, are those guys still around and pop some names? Or am I old?), but at the end of day, they were just quantity suggestions that quite frankly didn't require much extensive effort. Sure I was the first suggestor to achieve black belt status when they decided to implement that, but at the end of the day looking back at my achievements, all those hundreds of hollow suggestions are next to meaningless to me. While I did hold the #1 Top Contributors part for a little while, it's not really that great of a feeling when majority of those votes came from blind votes and superfluous suggestions. The suggestions that really do mean a lot to me though are the ones where I put in hours into crafting and thought into. The ones that come immediately to mind was when I suggested to change the Loose Cannon to a scrap price range when I was merely an orange belt, which was an incredibly ballsy and an unheard proposal to do when it was universally accepted that all weapons are only worth .05. https://backpack.tf/suggestion/52153a974bd7b8171200000b   Suggestions like these resonate with me the most. I went against the conventional wisdom and trends because I wanted to do what I felt was right. It encouraged me to think outside the box and make sure my argument wasn't bullshit or else people would rip me apart. And when my extremely hard work got accepted, I really felt like I accomplished something. Suggestions I did like these, doing key suggestions when shit was really vitriolic and dealing with hate (damn keys are worth 27 ref+? Are they gonna be 50 ref when I come back a year later?), and doing suggestions on all unusual variants of the Fez are my proudest accomplishments. They made me learn things and actually contributed to the site the most even though the contribution points or whatever don't really properly reflect that. I don't remember my suggestion trains like when the latest halloween items were dropping in value or when they required little thought, but suggestions that required hard work and critical thinking are something I recommend every prospective suggestor to do more often. To me at least, they're the most fulfilling.   I guess the biggest thing I would like to highlight though is towards the end of my prime years. I'll just say it out there right here in the open since I honestly have little issues expressing this: I was dealing with pretty bad depression at the time. I will not go into details as to how it occurred, but if you just looked at how I phrased things towards the end of 2014 and some of my blogs, it's pretty obvious that I was just really sad and tired. With things that were going on IRL that transpired through my contributions, I complained and was pessimistic more often than not. I attributed part of my depression to little enjoyment towards suggesting so I announced my retirement. That clearly didn't actually help, and if anything it made my depression worse as the years went on. I went on to have suicidal thoughts and being afraid of my future. I was extremely vulnerable and self-deprecating. I was pathetic, which I thought of myself all the time before. Soon though, I ended up getting some help, and I was doing things that slowly but surely got me out of depression. I started addressing the root of my problems. I started meditating to get me to think clearly. I started to eat better and exercise once in awhile. I started smiling more. After a year of getting out of my hole, I was pretty much out of the woods, and I'm so grateful to be out of that state of mind. To all of you currently struggling, try to find someone that will support you. Try to find motivation in one thing that you find dear to you and cling onto it as your reason to keep going. If you don't have that one motivation, make something your one motivation. Set goals. Meditate to have a clearer state of mind. Address the root of your problem and resolve it. Things WILL get better if you address it in due time as it did for me. Perhaps y'all should go outside for a little while and get some Vitamin D, since I know you probably spend a little too much time on the computer than we should. Depression isn't a simple topic and everyone has their own problems, so I'll leave it as that, but I will say to those that are struggling: why not start now to get better?   Welp, I guess that's the most I have in my mind right now. If you're wondering why I don't return to the main site or really hang around here that often, it's because my interest has long past TF2, suggesting, and trading. The fire in me is long, long gone, and TF2 is incredibly stale to me. I tried coming back when my depression has significantly subsided, but my heart really wasn't in it. Nah, most of my current interests are stuff I'm doing in college and Melee, so coming back here in my prime days is pretty much out of the question. It's a bit sad that I'll never be able to come back to my peak, but the memories of my experience is still there, and I'll probably check back here every once in awhile to see what's new and old. Feel free to comment and asking me whatever and I might come back in an appropriate timely matter to answer, but yeah that's what's up to me.

Proof:
Solds:
https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198079416605#!/compare/1509062400/1509148800 ~ most likely sold on the SCM for the 40.05$ sale which would make it 17 keys, but its hard to tell so we wont use this one (buyer at 18 too) Sold #2:
https://marketplace.tf/items/30907;5;u58/Cloud 9 Battle Boonie ~ sold for 35$ ~ / 1.95 (going key price on backpack) = 18 keys...

So-duh

Soda   You drink soda? You probably do. I don't, but that's not convenient to the case.   The soft cold liquid that just flows down your throat popping all the way trough your esophagus and gracefully merges itself into your stomach acid, refreshing you and providing energy! Soda just seems like the perfect substitute to boring old water now, is it not? Well, it is being marketed as so for a reason.   No branding became as powerful as soda brandings, the flashy colours of their tin cans are so appealing to the eye, and their taste is made to make you happy, and keep you that way for as long as you live, yes, happiness can be bought CHEAP. And they like you that way! after all, while you're enjoying your nice can of artificial tastes you just stop thinking about how the world makes you grumpy, it's the little moments of "alright" that the mass keeps craving by pushing the soda industry further, raining money on them for their little bottles of gas, water and sugar.   Sugar, or worse, ADDED sugar, key component to the little drop of endorphin release on all those cans of justice, bringing to your pallate the sweet, sweet taste of being PUPPETEERED, to feel exactly how they want you to feel, along with that little kick that nasty processed sugar gives you when it hits your bloodstream, giving you energy, satisfaction and refreshment. Simple, convenient and troughly engineered in every aspect.   How the marketing for those little buggers go? Advertisements displaying the youth, happy families on holidays, SPORTS! (Allow me to say, no high performance athlete even touches soda.) and Santa Claus, portraying it like "It's just something you can't live without!", but hey,all publicity goes like that, so it's alright, it's up for the individual to see what's going on after all.   Cool drinks for cool kids, who wash away the troubles of the day trough high doses of refined sugar and added chemicals, well, it's the convenient way of living, you wouldn't want to overdose your mind on your problems, they are selling happiness trough little snack packs anyway, It's just confortable being controlled.   Remember folks, they control you by doing whatever's in their reach to make you an F3: FAT, FULL AND FRAIL   Stay woke and reconsider your game fuel.

Break the conditioning!

HELLO! I am Carrots, creator of The Conspiracy Corner, a little project I plan on updating from time to time that has the objective to spread TRUTH and make you, kind traders of scrapack.tf WOKE against the major and troublesome realities of the world(s) that surround you and I.   Not really, this is pretty much a project I started to have somewhere to share the content I have written trough the weeks, most of it poking fun (with a little hint of actual facting) at the extremism that orbits how the globe is being politcally lead, and it has the objective to entertain you folk, so down all the content that will be posted here with a smile on your face and a little drain hole in your mind.   Why am I doing this? For fun.   That being said, let's get ready to awaken with Mr. Jones. (Quite loud, I warn you.)

scamming

putin: aka putina, rat, cunt, empire oof yugoslavia is a scammer. he has scammed many people and these people have come to me and told me that he had been scammed.
I have to admit I was pretty stupid, I Thought something good about him, and thought he was being legit, he said he would pay me back. he gave me 7 cosmetics on the spot, and said that there were more to come, promising a key and the snack attack. this was about right item over pay right? exactly.

he said he couldn't trade for 2 months because he removed authenticator, then he promised me an unusual then a headtaker, I declined both because i had waited long enough to get my items and then he ended up removing me and blocking me.

I reported him but still,dosn't matter. hes a dick aswell, he made up this whole bullshit about him not being able to do it because he had a rough childhood, dickhead. if you want to find him he commented before he blocked me.

here is my steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/ack13/
here is his (go report him): http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198372796928

Unique Weapon Level Pricing

So I have found a few regular unique weapons lately that have some good levels on them (100, 69, 42, etc.) and I was wondering, how much would a level number change the price of a regular unique weapon?
