I use cash to buy items in Team Fortress 2 because I find a lot of my enjoyment within this game, and I feel that trading is where a lot of that lies. 

 

I've spent around $300 on TF2. 

 

I've made around $400 off of trading. I'm not as hardcore as many others on here, but I've made enough to feel fairly satisfied.

 

I collect virtual items because it's fun to me. It's cool to have, and neat to maintain. 

 

This is a heavy hobby of mine, I've been playing for about 3 years now. 

 

I believe it's very real, and I've done it before. I'll do it again someday when I decide to leave this game. 

 

I enjoy this game very deeply, and I will continue to enjoy it for years to come. I feel I owe a lot of my enjoyment to the community and friends, though. 

 

I personally Collect "Lowcraft" Capo's Cappers because I just really like the hat, and want to have a neat and unique collection to show off. I don't have a real reason to collect them other than just to have them for personal enjoyment. 

 

I'm 17 years old. 

 

Where's my cookie? I'm starving.

Why do you use real money to buy virtual items? I almost never spend real money on virtual objects


 


How much real money have you spent on virtual items? Like $20, on Supply Crate Keys


 


How much real money have you made on virtual items? Quite a bit, backpack.tf gives me an estimated of almost $1200, of course it's not that much but around 1000 it's my guess


 


Why do you collect virtual items? I am more of a trader than a collector, i do it mostly because of the money i can get and because it's cool to have burning pixels around my head :^) :^)


 


Is this your hobby? It has been one of my biggest hobbies for around a year already


 


Do you believe in making real money from virtual items? I do, many people around here have made a lot of cash from trading


 


Do you enjoy it? I do enjoy it, most of the time


 


Why do you collect virtual items on TF2? Same reason as, ¿Why do i collect virtual items?


 


How old are you? 15


 


I really want that cookie...

Why do you use real money to buy virtual items? I don't personally, I only used it when I was new to buy keys, waste them and get nothing :D

 

 

How much real money have you spent on virtual items? I'd say around $60? not too sure, maybe more maybe less.

 

How much real money have you made on virtual items? $400-500, not as much as most people but I still really enjoy it

 

Is this your hobby? Yeah, pretty much

 

Do you believe in making real money from virtual items? Of course, that's what we all do here xD

 

Do you enjoy it? Yeah, a lot

 

Why do you collect virtual items on TF2? It's fun seeing yourself make profit and your backpack value grow

 

How old are you? Let's just say... younger than this font size.

 

GIVE ME MY INTERNET COOKIES DONUTS OR I SHALL VAPORIZE UR-ANUS

Why do you use real money to buy virtual items? :

 

I don't use real money that I get from actually working / earning it irl. I use funds from this game in order to get other items I'd like or I see I can make some sort of profit from.

 

 

How much real money have you spent on virtual items?

 

Like.. $50?

 

How much real money have you made on virtual items?

 

Like... $1,000?

 

Is this your hobby?

 

Damn right.

 

Do you believe in making real money from virtual items?

 

Damn right, look at E.V.E. online.

 

Do you enjoy it?

 

Do you think that a 16-year old wouldn't do something he likes? Hell, I hate to read.

 

Why do you collect virtual items on TF2?

 

Why not? Literally, why not? To collect is to get money. I want to get money playing a game, sounds damn awesome.

 

How old are you?

 

16.

1. I put money in the game because I enjoyed the game and I felt that it would enhance my experience to have items I got from it.

 

2. I've only spent ~$20.

 

3.I haven't really cashed out, so I've only sold ~$5 worth of stuff for PayPal. If you mean, just my items, probably around $525 if you include my CS:GO items and the outdated prices of my unusuals.

 

4.It is one of my hobbies, yes.

 

5. If I didn't think that I could, I wouldn't be trading today.

 

6. Hell yes.

 

7. I think it's cool to have them. They are unique and serve a function.

 

8. 17

 

9. I have ~1050 hours in game, but I spend a lot of time in other games with Outpost and Backpack.tf open to browse.
