  • Deleting Strange item bug (does not generate strange items)

    Hi All,

    After deleting about 9 strange common items i found in chests to run some tests I finally got an uncommon item and I was like woot finally.

    Then I realised it my strange item had become just an uncommon item.... The text make it sound like deleting a common strange item will potentially yield a uncommon strange item.

    Please fix this bug asap as I got a worse off item then i had to begin with and a waste of many keys, thank you.

    its not suppose to give u a strange item, deleting items only give u a chance at a non-strange item of higher rarity .

    Only way to get stranges is via chests.

      I feel like this is an oversight. Mostly because opening enough crates tends to leave you with SEVERAL of the same strange item.

        Trading them would be a far better option, then.

        Working as intended.

          Yes I obtained a strange then deleted it for a small chance for a better strange item (ie from common to uncommon).

          Why after taking that risk should i be rewarded with a non strange uncommon item worth considerably less?

          This cannot seriously be working as intended.

            If you craft stranges in TF2, they turn into regular scrap. Similarly, attempting to delete-upgrade Dota stranges leads to regular Dota items.

            I strongly suggest trading these strange items next time.

              This should be changed.
              As I understood it currently deleting
              common -> uncommon
              strange common -> uncommon
              feels wrong. this means deleting normal drops is just as valuable as deleting bought stuff from chests.

              If Valve keeps it that way, strange items should have at least a far higher chance to become a better item.

                Strange items are not meant to be upgraded. They're part of a set series of items from a particular crate. If you open an Axe crate, for example, yet get an Axe item and you aren't allowed to upgrade it to something else.

                  WRONG!!! It does NOT give you Strange!!! Delteing NEVER gives strange.
                  Try to understand: Deleteing an item gives you an item "MORE RARE". NOT, a more rare Strange. You only get Strange from chest.

                  Nobody ever said you get a strange if you delete a strange. Why did you think you do?!
