Exception for Pricing Rules on 1-of-1 Strange Unusual Weapons


Recommended Posts

Reposting this since apparently one month is old enough for a thread to get auto-locked and archived. Original thread here: http://forums.backpack.tf/index.php?/topic/58137-pricing-strange-unusual-weapons-with-old-trades-exception/


I've got quite a few strange unusual weapons that I've wanted to make price suggestions for ever since I got them.


Unfortunately that functionality simply has not been available on the site until just recently, and now all my proof is at least a year old.


Since I'm interested in pricing 1-of-1 unusuals that will never be traded again, can I use the prices I paid for them even though those trades are so old?


For example, I have a Min Wear Strange Isotope Butcher Bird Grenade Launcher ( https://backpack.tf/item/4707218574)that I paid 110 keys for back in April 2016 ( http://i.imgur.com/rYMclXH.jpg, http://i.imgur.com/wkRh6BQ.jpg -- there are a couple of field tested ones, but this is the only min wear). It will never leave my backpack again, so unless I can use this evidence, or in the extremely unlikely chance that an identical one is unboxed AND traded, this will NEVER get a price.


Since the ability to price strange unusual weapons was not available, can we get an exception to the old evidence rule if the item is 1-of-1 and in a collector's backpack?


To be clear, of the 16 strange unusuals I have in my collection, only 3 of them would qualify for an exception (the others being not 1-of-1s or they were off the steam market or mixed), so this would not be a free-for-all.


In this status update, Polar mentions specifically 8 months old may be allowed: http://forums.backpack.tf/index.php?/statuses/user/17466-thewiz/?status_id=424193Unfortunately that doesn't help my case, since my most recent is April 2016 (11 months old). It's very frustrating to lose out on prices for my collection just because the site wasn't prepared for it at the time so I'm hoping an exception.
