Your favorite Badge/Pin is....

Surprisingly the favorite badge or pin of TF2 traders is: The Genuine Companion Cube Pin.  Possibly the most widely available and signifying that someone bought Portal 2 pre-order for a good amount of cash, the Cube is the clear winner.  The License to Maim from Poker Night comes in second place, and the Soldier Medals and Bombinomicon tie at 3rd place.  Flair with an honorable mention in 4th place (I can see the Office Space rentals on Netflix getting queued up!)

Most unloved?  Dr. Grordbert's Copper Crest at a measly 7 votes.   It cost the same as the Silver Crest and was available for the same amount of time and the only real difference being the name and color.  But as we see so often in the TF2 economy, gamers value things with similar consistency to real life: silver being slightly more popular.  Although let's be honest the crests were a somewhat awkward store item and had seemingly little interest from the community.

That is all.  Carry on.

  1. I think what might have put the copper crest in last place may be the fact you can't actually wear it with the set it goes with, because the hairpiece and goggles are both misc items. It is all-class, but if not all the pieces of the set can be worn together on the Engineer, well... that sounds about right.

  2. You're probably right, surprisingly, the Hairpiece clips with almost EVERY HAT! I wonder if it was meant to be in the 'Head' Equip Region than the Misc, which should from the looks of it as it covers more Head than other regions.

    How dare they vote the Companion Cube, the License to Main...come on, what's a floating cube gonna do when I got a shiny badge that allows me to dismember you and tear your kneecaps out with a shatter gun!
