Me jelly. I probably wouldn't be premium in TF2 until around August or so. ):

If it makes you feel any better, Premium isn't all that great. It just lets you trade with other people freely and gives you a pretty small chance of finding hats and misc. items by drops. That's about it. =w=

Didn't we have Fortress Fridays or something? I never played back then when those were on so I don't know anything about them.

I guess most of you guys are busy cause of school cause it's nearing the end of the school year for you guys? It's still half year for me here so I don't know xD

Apart from that, I just got upgraded to being a premium member and it's even more fun! Getting really better at it compared to my f2p self a few days ago xD
GVSU got out at the start of May. It's just that I'm leeching wifi because we don't have internet right now and the signal's too weak to play TF2 effectively. Works fine for WoW, though, so I'm playing that on a private server at the moment.

EDIT: or not. XD Maybe we need someone else to be in charge of these sort of schedulings, if the staff is too busy. But that's just my thoughts. =w=;
Oh, I'm not usually busy. The schedule stuff will be set up soon, actually. And that is the official PokeCommunity group, the one that I posted is our PokeCommunity TF2 group.

Hey SkullKing, I kind of think it's a bit excessive to be making a PC Steam group dedicated to TF2. We don't need to be forming new groups left and right. I'm in discussion with an old mod of VG and we're going to try to coordinate some effective use of that group to at least host TF2 events. Hopefully regularly.

Hope yesterday's event went better than the one I hosted a week ago lol

That's what I wanted to get, durr. Like I said, if it wasn't for that juicylicious trading I couldn't care less about premium.

Well, at least you can receive items, and trade said items. I'm always happy to give away some swag I don't need. XDDDD

PS Still looking for a server that can get me the Haunted Scrap. No luck yet. Can someone help?

How can someone become a 'premium' member? If all that premium does is allow you to trade, I've been premium ever since they introduced the crafting/trading aspect...

The least you can spend is 5 bucks, since adding funds to your Steam wallet comes in bulk ($5.00, $10.00, etc.). So if I were to recommend anything, if you do choose to upgrade to premium, I'd say spend that swag on cheap hats or Crate Keys.

If you bought the game (meaning you got the game before the Uber update, which is June 23, 2011; bought any item in the Mann Co Store after the uber update, etc) you're premium.

Since I can't add money to my Steam Wallet, I'll be buying the Orange Box (luckily for me, they still have copies of those here in the country, haha) to be premium. And I also get HL2 so it's a win. :DDDD

Ohhh okay, well that makes sense. I bought the game back in...2009? I'm glad I was given the Proof of Purchase hat when they brought in the Uber update. :3

Eeek, I got Zepheniah's Greed. I'm thinking if I should sell it or save it for something later. :D
Granted, Greed isn't really that pricey anyway.

I'm bored with trading. I have everything I need. Hats, misc, and I achieved my Tf2 trading goal, Earbuds. Who wants my remaining stuff that I may not sell? Seriously, nobody wants it. ITS FREEE.

What're you giving away? I'll take just about anything but crates.

I don't mind taking some swag. Got any Spy and Pyro stuff? *Plays as those two classes a lot, mostly Pyro, pyromaniac, whatever XD* Also, if you have anything for the Demoman, can I have it? My girlfriend loves playing as him, but she's F2P, so she can't get hat/misc. drops for the class.

I want strange weapons! That's probably too much to ask though, so you can ignore that. xD

I don't care for DeGroot Keep. Every time I play, it's full of chargin' Demomen.
