Sithil’s Summer Stash Items no Strange Modifier?

    I've gotten a couple cool items from the chest, so I'm not unhappy, but I'd like some confirmation that something about them will be unique in the future. I'll be really bummed if we all just bought non-strange items with keys and then later they're much more common.

    I feel like it's not much to ask for some explanation of why Summer Stash items, unique among all the chests, are not Strange. Did anything like this happen in TF2 ever?

      Well at this point I've bargained a trade for those items.
      I can only hope they'll be unique in the future.

        any confirmation on this matter?

          Tags for items became standard... and I've decided not to purchase any keys.
          Meet a bug?
          It was probably to make the game more skillful.

            Pudge Hook is still Base.

              I have gold spent and enemies gushed modifiers if anyone is interested.

                You can't apply strange modifiers on non-strange items. But as long as the summer items remain outside of the shop (exclusive to the chest that is now gone), there's little reason to be upset about the lack of Stranges.

                  Valve really went above and beyond with the awesome new Timebreaker, but reading the blog there's this worrying little tidbit:
                  Timebreakers that exist now are the only ones that will ever be until the end of time and thus the item rarity has been upgraded to ‘Immortal’.
                  What this sounds like to me is an almost-confirmation that any of the other items from Sithil's Chest are open to returning (except for Timebreaker, which is permanently exclusive), and that the only time-limited exclusive items will consist of the rarity 'Immortal' or higher.

                  As much as I'll be bummed when they make a return (as this sounds like), I'll take some solitude in the fact that my Timestopper is forever exclusive as the real prize. Better than the nothing I was worried about!

                    Now that the stash is gone, time to close it.

                    The items from summer stash are not strange.
