Eh, I think Scout looks ridiculous and the items look terribly out of place, but the same people wanking about hats "ruining the game" are the same ones sperging out as soon as new ones are released. The wank is plaguing the community, not the hats. That said, this might be the only pic of Scout I've seen in that hair that doesn't make my eyes bleed. Nicely drawn.
Let the trolling commence I suppose. And here Valve was once known for its high QA standards... well, the games still are, but their DLC is somewhat problematic. But who knows, maybe they will really take the big leap with Episode 3 and finance it only via Item Shop and what we're experiencing right now is the "Let's see what we can get away with" phase.
