    Just get good deals on stuff, I once made a bud in a couple days by buying and selling killstreaks, but they aren't always easy to sell.

    My suggestion is don't get rich. Makes you a bigger target for phishers.

    Don't get rich, after 3 years of playing TF2 trying to make it rich I have learnt that it is not worth trying.

    Did you give up becoming "rich"because of the high difficulty of achieving it or did you succeed and then found no pleasure in such swagness?

    A bit of both. On my alt (which used to be my main) I had a backpack worth many buds, but then I was so focused on getting richer I got bored with tf2 and sold all mai stuff for real money. I then got back into tf2 and tried to get rich again, which I have a moderately "rich" backpack or at least what is considered rich by most tf2 players (owning an unusual), but I just buy things I like now, no more trading to get rich for me :3

    I don't really try at getting rich. I just look for items I want, work my way up to them, and finally buy them. It's too much of a hassle to become rich and there really isn't that much of a reward to it in my opinion. Here's how I look at it.
    Perks to being rich:
    • You have nice stuff.
    • People respect you for having that stuff.
    Downsides to being rich:
    • You are always wanting more.
    • You are more likely to be targeted by Phishers.
    • You are always having random people beg you for free shit.
    • You eventually get bored with the game because you are too focused on trading.
    In my opinion, the downsides out way the good sides. This is why I don't want to be rich, nor have I tried very hard at it. The most I do is take the weapons I find and sell them to Scrap Bots.

    The time spent trying to become rich in TF2 could be spent better elsewhere. I'm not a rich trader, my backpack is only worth about $300 but I'm perfectly fine with that. Besides, once you have everything you want, you get bored.

    THIS IS POOR PERSON LOGIC:
    Perks to being rich:
    • You have fan boys
    • You have nice stuff
    • You can make fun of poor people like Brunerth
    • People respect you for money (lol?)
    • I own Harpoon Gaming
    • I swim in a pool of melted icebergs
    • I have a helicopter that shoots Harpoons
    Downsides of being rich:
    • There's poor people around you.
    • You run out of things to buy.
    Clearly the pros OUTWEIGH (rich people can also spell) the cons.

    On a serious note, it's less important to be rich than to be happy. Plenty of people play with their friends, admin a server or compete in matches and find their happiness there. Personally, I used trading to take up spare time and also get some profit. But overall, I used the majority of my wealth to start HG and try my best to spread happiness and awareness to the community.
