Soju Posted July 10, 2018 Share Posted July 10, 2018 I find it fascinating (not surprising, fascinating) that people spend hundreds of dollars on these items that have no difference from their dime a dozen counterparts other than having dark red text. If I'm gonna spend big bucks on virtual items I want to show off! I want people to know about it! Here's my idea: Kills with collectors quality items are shown with the weapons outlined in dark red (#AA0000) in the kill feed, kinda like how aussie weapon kill icons are different. If it's a collectors cosmetic then the wearer's name is outlined in the kill feed. The outline would have to be pretty thin to keep it clear which team the wearer is on. The outline could also show up on the in-game scoreboard and text-chat which may come in handy if you wanna spot an impersonator. This is basically a simplified version of websites and community servers giving flashy name styles to donators. Collector's items are rare and Valve already added player trails and voice-changing items (Halloween Spells) so this doesn't seem too outlandish. If we really wanna get fancy we could make it so that the red gets darker/ more noticeable the more collectors items you have equipped. Y'all got any other ideas/thoughts?
