Making a separate post due to that being long.

I think the new hats look average at best. No colours, makes the Billycock, Stovepipe and Panama a bit useless.
Yay, the backgrounds are finally back.

Here are the hats:

So basically, they pretty much nullify the Billycock. I saw these yesterday and was really dissapointed in the supposed Tower of Hats. The one in Daimao's Hat Emporium was way better, and to top it off, was an original design...

It looks a bit silly, I'd wear the Modest Pile of Hat for the Spy and maybe the Pyro; the rest are a bit naff in my opinion. Less is more. Fingers crossed for it randomly dropping for me this week when I play. Smile Apparently it's as common as muck so you never know. At least it gets rid of the ugly Gibus. Neutral

In the next update, I forsee Valve making the Texas Ten Gallon null and void by creating the Egghead's Head Warmer, an unlockable hat that is spread by dominating an Engineer. It looks exactly like the Texas Ten Gallon except an extremely tiny grey smudge is on it.

It's kind of bad for those who won the propaganda contest. Their hats just have a ribbon on; a barely noticeable ribbon. I would have prefered a flaming rocket launcher myself. Razz

But I'm very disapointed at the laziness here... =/

News just in: Snipers praise new Tower of Hats. According to sources, there is a 69% chance of you being shot at first by merely wearing this... hat. And it's not cause it's an eye sore.

That's a thought; someone needs to get the Tower of Hats and do the Kukri taunt as Sniper. It'd be a laugh to see him take off his tower of glued hats.
