My new book telling the story of the rise in Team Fortress 2, its virtual economy and the TF2 Spreadsheet is available now on Amazon.com!

This book chronicles the rise of Team Fortress 2 and the simultaneous rise in its virtual economy. The TF2 Spreadsheet was an online price guide and blog for valuing items found within the TF2 marketplace. This book uncovers the inner workings of the price guide and also tells the story of this blog's rise and fall. There is something for everyone, even if you never played the game. Whatever your interest: gaming, economics, trading, reading about interesting people, running a website or even designing a similar game, there is something for everyone.

After some time away from the site I've decided to call it a day. My time commitments to other people and projects have made it difficult in keeping this site updated. I want to thank every one of our site's developers, contributors, donators, and of course our visitors. Many of you have been generous with your time, donations, and even simple things such as commenting on posts or adding to discussions. Without all of you this wouldn't have been possible and for that I personally have a great sense of gratitude.

A price guide aimed at giving TF2 traders a reliable and accurate idea of value was always our goal. The trade scanning software was a great leap in allowing for the most accurate peek into actual trades. As someone who knows intimately how the real stock market works I can tell you that actual trades are the only market prices. I see trade.tf as having the right methodology and recommend that you give them a look. I have no connection to their site, I only have read how their own software works.

Good luck to everyone,

Admin

ps. In response to some inquiries, the url, the site code and the trade scanning software code are available for sale. Serious inquiries can email me directly. Also, we will be doing a final giveaway to be announced later (not yet so don't post here for it).
