    ICO - Update ( Mannco.store)

    Hi everyone, if you didn't already know i filed a complaint to ICO about how Mannco.store is releasing personal information(Email/Name), this was before they removed the scammer pg. They responded today informing me they have taken steps to resolve this matter. If there is more personal information that mannco.store Or any other site (tf2 related) has put out on their site without consent, let me know so i can relay the information to the correct team. Thank you for reading.

    Is it worth it to come back to unusual trading?

    It's aids because unlike old Halloween/Robo/Frostbite unusuals you can't just buy it for full B/O price then re-list it for 50% more than you paid for it and expect it to actually sell after a few months because "omg it's limited and god tier get it while it now before it's gone!"

    Really Need some help here

    Gonna call this a meme/troll post. Your BP has never exceeded $100 US, and the user in question has never had a BP above $70 USD.On top of that, neither you nor them shows up in any histories for PFetti Brain Warming Wears. The user in question also only has a 1k subscriber channel that's doing mostly clickbait/garbage videos rather than TF2 videos (even his TF2 videos are major clickbait seeing as he has thumbnails of australiums and burning/scorching flames unusuals but has only ever shown himself with a C9 pithy professional.) There isn't a single sane person on the planet that

    Strange Original confusion

    Any killstreak kits applied will make an item go off steam community market data for pricing rather than bp.tf suggested prices, which SCM data is almost always highly inaccurate or outdated on items that aren't selling dozens per day.

    Pricing some glitched items

    I recently got a tradable Dapper Disguise AND Bloodhound as an error from support. How much are they worth? I don't really see any precedence on either item, and I have no clue how to value them. I assume they are 1 of 1 or close to it. Proof (I traded with my alt to prove that these are indeed tradable): Dapper Disguise Bloodhound Thanks for the help.

    Is he a real user or a scammer?

    If you were redirected to some random on discord, the likelihood is that you were scammed or trying to get scammed further since discord chatlogs are very very hard to use as evidence since you can't completely say that discord user is the same steam user that you trade with. trader 5 might have impersonators, they are a rather well known tf2 and csgo trader

    what would be the best thing for me to do with 14 ref?

    Buy some cosmetics you like for the classes you play or get weapons you're missing; worry about trading when you're willing to drop $20-30 in starting capital. Bottom-tier trading is just not worth getting into seriously as you're fighting armies of more efficient bots for fractions of pennies. It'll take months to get anywhere worthwhile and all that time could easily be skipped by working a couple hours at a minimum wage job and investing that instead.

The sale will remain valid for 3 or 4 months, no need to suggest the exact same day the sale occurred In the future, you can make comparisons by going into a backpack, clicking on "Compare" on top right of the graph and select two days between which the sale occurred

    People follow buy orders to minimize risk of loss. And yes backpack tf prices are most of the time extremely out of date.

    Why does TF2 economy work?

    TF2 items (at least the expensive ones) are collectibles, so they follow the same principles as other collectibles. Yes, tf2 items are materially just numbers in a company's database, but old stamps or sports cards are materially just pieces of paper, yet they can be worth much more than any tf2 item. A fake sports card, even if indistinguishable from the genuine article without advanced instruments, is still worth much less than the real one because the value has nothing to do with the physical item itself. The value comes from the history of the item and what is implied by ownership of it. B

    yeah idk mate its not really worth the bother, you'll struggle to make meaningful profit. if you're going to trade you want to have more trading capital behind you to make it worthwhile.

    Can I profit off unusuals with 10 keys?

    Profit is possible, but don't expect margins like that right out of the gate. Your biggest obstacle's going to be that you'll have nearly all your capital invested in a solitary item, so if you make a wrong move, it will hurt (eggs, basket, and so forth). This also means it's important to recognize when to cut your losses, sell at a loss, and try again, as while that item's not selling, you're completely dead in the water. Whereas if you have multiple items you're selling, you can afford to have some be slow sales as you're still maintaining inertia in profit. As for what unusual t

    Looking to own some Unusuals in TF2

    If you can get together another key and some change I'd recommend the Neckwear like AJ since it's the largest and most pronounced effect. Dead Presidents is a very glitchy effect and kind of blah, while Orbiting Planets is very low visibility The cotton head and Law are both way outside of your price range. My man.

    Creating a payment issue is the correct way to do it, it was only created 16 hours ago so it having no response is not that weird. i’ve assigned it to an admin who can fix it for you, they’ll reply when available.

    Looking to own some Unusuals in TF2

    You could definitely get one of these hats for 25, or less, keys. Specifically the DP Dapper, OP Salty, and VP Neckwear. Someone is selling a DBD Cotton for 44 keys atm. The Law is probably the highest valued of these hats but not by a lot (you could probably get one for 60 or less if you try adding the owners). If you were expecting all of them for 25 keys, then no; you'll definitely need more keys. If you're looking to buy one of them, I would say go for the DBD Cotton Head. Nice all class hat and effect in my opinion. IDK what your financial position is but you could just buy keys from trus

    [Price check?] Items with spells on it

    Alright let me work out the price real quick. Orange colour (strange) adds 4.33 keys. Killstreak adds 1 keys. Professional Frozen adds 192 keys. Aurora adds 42 refineds. Sniper Rifle adds 1 keys. Team Shine subtracts 15% off total value (dumb colour people don't like dumb colours). 184 kills adds 3.5 keys (each kill equals 1 refined metal)

    I'd just list them both on Classifieds for some ridiculous price (500 keys?) and simply state "Collecting offers at the moment, buyout is a placeholder." or something along those lines.

  33. I'm wondering why this is happening. Has development of this site disappeared or become overwhelmed? Do they need help generating images? I would be willing to donate my time helping to generate all the images, if someone would point me in the right direction with learning the naming conventions and what they typically use to generate the image. I'm pretty useless at web development otherwise but if you need someone to help removing some of the drudgery from updating the site, I would be glad to assist if I can.

    Looking for price check please

    Probably 25-30 range. It's not a popular hat at all but the effect is nice. The only valid sale that exists for that hat thus far is 25 pure ~3 months ago (every other transaction is scammers or scrap.tf bots): https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198129223570#!/compare/1612742400/1613001600 Otherwise Green Energy is priced at 32 keys right now, so the range makes sense to me here.

Considering that both of yours are essentially 1:1 on the market forever, you have the power to ask ANY price you want. But don't let anyone try to take advantage of you. These should cost (Individually), in the least, 350~ or so keys. But, they could probably go for even more than that.

    Price gouging, not actually worth that. Try and trade one of those guys the same thing for something they have listed at even half that B/O and you'd get insta-declined. I had one of these a few months ago, and getting $65USD for it was a hard sell. That buyer for 60 is already overpaying, so if you want one I'd just wait a while and the market will go back to normal.
