I was curious so I looked at my bp history to remind myself what hats I owned back then. This was about 5 years ago around when Jungle Inferno came out. I had unboxed some unusualifiers that I traded up. Some stuff I ended up getting (not all at once) was a phosphorus company mann, blizzardy storm soldier's stash, darkblaze noble nickle. I can't believe I ended up trading away all this stuff back then! I was younger and didn't really have the foresight to hang onto all that. I remember I ended up trading the darkblaze noble nickle for a terror watt well wrapped hat and some spelled items and cashed out for like $150 and I bought Far Cry 5 to play with my friend lmao 😂. Nowadays that would be like -$1000. I liked those times where sick hats were more easily obtainable.

 

Do any of you have stories of items you wish you held onto?

purple bat antler, 

Green Bay bonk boy ,

Back when I was maybe 16, I got sharked for a Scorching Flames Brain Slug. Orbiting Fire had just been added, and BLACKENED who was a big name at the time gave me two shitty Orbiting Fire hats for it, with everyone in the server telling me to go for it. 

 

One old hat I loved I reacquired recently! My Flaming Lantern Attendant. One of my other very old unboxes I wish I could have again is my Cauldron Bubbles Grimme Hate, but that is way outside my budget for one hat nowadays.

When I was 13, back in Summer of 2012, a month before the Pyromania update was when I first started trading in TF2. I got started in crate trading and got my first big break from someone giving me a salvaged crate 40 and 2 scorched crates for free in July 2012.

This feels ridiculous to victimise yourself over given that prices were so different back in 2017. I was also trading back then and made trades with miscs that nowadays look ridiculous but that's the benefit of economic inflation and hindsight.

 

I had to dig through compares and individually check dates for this trade because of the backpack.tf data wipe but the trade you made was easily fair at the time.

https://backpack.tf/suggestion/599f2afecf6c751fc7205912 - sugg at 420 on the hpjr ke at the time, not sure if this is the whole trade

https://backpack.tf/suggestion/58b52540c4404526f95c0a88 - oh it's sale 1 here which was used to price the bonk at 530, $200 paypal i couldnt see in the trade

It was easily a fair trade at the time lmao

 

and you got the cv bonk in this gpan trade?

https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198027544408#!/compare/1486771200/1488153600

cv bonk at the time -  same as above

sbtwc boa - https://backpack.tf/suggestion/588c88720e2cad4f94107cbb - easily 400 at the time

misc 100 keys in items and the spelled back scatter unaccounted for

 

a pretty standard trade at the time and surprisingly has held up to gpan and hween inflation

 

you can't claim "sharked" when the trade was perfectly standard during 2017 trading prices.

 

and you aren't talking about trades that retroactively, you clearly benefited from too at a similar time?

https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198027544408#!/compare/1491004800/1491091200

frost grimm for bonzo reggae? clearly a "shark" given that its 300 for a frost grimm today and 1200 for a bonzo reggae

 

stop this narrative that you were "retroactively sharked" because prices have gone up on some unusuals you used to own.

 

EDIT: I don't know Lila too well but he's an old face and old name in the community (that I used to bug for sales) and I was active around the same time he was active on the discord. The above is as unbiased an opinion as I can have given I've provided relevant compare links from the trades at the time.

 

Double edit: https://prnt.sc/ugP46WNjpmZb I've noticed you even commented to confirm the trade you made on the CV bonk suggestion so it's even crazier for you to retroactively pull your opinion here.
Google pictures died on me rip

Screenshots are from around 2018 since the screenshots above do not show the dates, when I was last very active in discord, aside from the quarantine period.

lmao yeah if you want to talk actual sharks I knew a kid about a decade ago that moderated a trading server, server owner sharked him out of an unbox, gave him like 100 keys or something for his freshly unboxed halloween all class

 

It was a cloudy moon crones dome

I clicked into the page expecting everybody to reminisce keys for 2.33 ref. each...

 

Well anyways that's what I'd be reminiscing! 😂

Frankly and honestly, not all too much. I have a bad habit of getting too attached to stuff I have and holding onto it for years, like my sulpherous metal drill, cauldron bubbles slouch, mg napeleon complex, and even unboxes from years ago I just cba selling and now imagine would be even more difficult to shift with glad bots gone. And the shit I have sold or traded probably contributed to getting hold of my current bp so really no need to get mad about shit imo lmao

Honestly, I'd say the best time (for me) was 13' to 15'. I was just a lil boy back then, but the most fun was seeing all the unusual trading servers and seeing people actually HAGGLE for prices and not using bp as a be all end all for prices. People still haggle nowadays I guess, but it's certainly not the same. The only time people haggle and barter is if it's something unpriced or if the price is exuberant.

I just miss the comradery of people liking each others' sets and mucking about. Spycrabbing also used to be a LOT bigger (and more tense). I still remember Satan going on unusual servers and doing these crabs of over $2000. I also remember a fella trading for over 50 unusuals at once. Someone even has video of it somewhere and you can hear my squeaky voice over the mic lmao.

This feels ridiculous to victimise yourself over given that prices were so different back in 2017. I was also trading back then and made trades with miscs that nowadays look ridiculous but that's the benefit of economic inflation and hindsight.

 

I had to dig through compares and individually check dates for this trade because of the backpack.tf data wipe but the trade you made was easily fair at the time.

https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198027544408#!/compare/1488153600/1488240000
https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198055847835#!/compare/1488067200/1488153600

 

https://backpack.tf/suggestion/599f2afecf6c751fc7205912 - sugg at 420 on the hpjr ke at the time, not sure if this is the whole trade

https://backpack.tf/suggestion/58b52540c4404526f95c0a88 - oh it's sale 1 here which was used to price the bonk at 530, $200 paypal i couldnt see in the trade

It was easily a fair trade at the time lmao

 

and you got the cv bonk in this gpan trade?

https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198027544408#!/compare/1486771200/1488153600

cv bonk at the time -  same as above

sbtwc boa - https://backpack.tf/suggestion/588c88720e2cad4f94107cbb - easily 400 at the time

misc 100 keys in items and the spelled back scatter unaccounted for

 

a pretty standard trade at the time and surprisingly has held up to gpan and hween inflation

 

you can't claim "sharked" when the trade was perfectly standard during 2017 trading prices.

 

and you aren't talking about trades that retroactively, you clearly benefited from too at a similar time?

https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198027544408#!/compare/1491004800/1491091200

frost grimm for bonzo reggae? clearly a "shark" given that its 300 for a frost grimm today and 1200 for a bonzo reggae

 

stop this narrative that you were "retroactively sharked" because prices have gone up on some unusuals you used to own.

 

EDIT: I don't know Lila too well but he's an old face and old name in the community (that I used to bug for sales) and I was active around the same time he was active on the discord. The above is as unbiased an opinion as I can have given I've provided relevant compare links from the trades at the time.

 

Double edit: https://prnt.sc/ugP46WNjpmZb I've noticed you even commented to confirm the trade you made on the CV bonk suggestion so it's even crazier for you to retroactively pull your opinion here.

Stormy 13th hour Villains Veil

 

Knifestorm Villains Veil

 

Spellbound Backwards Ballcap (sold for unusual weapons)


13th Hour Company Man

 

Cloudy Moon Brainiac Hairpiece

 

Burning Flames El Jefe

 

Burning Flames Bonk Boy

 

Scorching Flames Bonk Boy

 

Sunbeams Bonk Boy

 

Haunted Phantasm Jr Bonk Boy

Burning Flames Soldiers Stash

 

Scorching Flames Blighted Beak

 

Sunbeams Mountebanks Masque 1 of 1 


Knifestorm Modest Pile

 

and so so so much more. it was a different economy back then, these days im torn between reminiscing and being disgusted at the state of things, the greed is limitless.

 

 

I’ve owned many of those hats myself, and have done the same, I can confidently say you have good taste in unusuals.
