The Official TF2 Community Hat Preference Tier List...

#1davidaaronkPosted 8/13/2010 7:40:59 AM
Using steam stats usage percentages, I have compiled this list.

It is definitive.

I only included real hats and not junk like the gibus. We know they are below hatless tier, whether the data proves otherwise or not...

When making trades in the future, do not ask to trade low tier for high tier hats because that is trolling etc...

New Hats are rarer and thus more preferred so this list doesn't necessarily denote the quality of hats...

Please be sure to request Sticky!

Without further ado...

You got the bottom two the wrong way around.

If you want sticky, delete and remake?

This is a dumb idea... This list assumes the trader cares more about how rare his/her hat is vs. how much he/she likes the look of it. Very bad assumption for an item that is purely cosmetic.

Also, since stats are the only thing you're going for, you even got hat wrong. The owner of the Uncle Sam doesn't even equip his hat, which by this list and your logic would make it the lowest tier'd and most worthless hat since 0% of tf2players have it equipped.

Since all video game related tiers are jokes, I kinda just assumed he was joking, while simply providing some interesting trivia.
I could, however, be wrong, since the main thing that makes such tiers funny is that some people take them seriously.

LOL

I would gladly trade a Whoopee Cap for a Bonk Helm or a Batter's helmet.
It's all personal preference when it comes to hats really.

I like how he put all the "original" hats in the bottom tier. /sarcasm

Also, WTF is the Kabuto doing below the Sergeant's Drill Hat?

I'd agree with Drill Hat > Kabuto. That damn samurai helmet looks so out of place and weird.
