Last time I shared to you, TF2 players and TF2 trading people, the last part of an amazing story about LoopsCode who achieved his dream with the help of actually playing Team Fortress 2.
TF2 Trading: Some Last Words
Well, we finished reading his story but he has some parting words and actually the moral of his own story. Here it goes:
So this is my story of how TF2 helped me achieved my dream of getting a job in Silicon Valley.
The lesson I learned is – just be a good person. Be a good person even under the veil of anonymity. You don’t know when it will bite you in the butt, or when it will literally help you achieve your dreams. Just do it!

EDIT: I swear I wouldn’t do these type of “front page EDITs”, but damn, I woke up to 800 upvotes and a gild. Thank you all so much for receiving this so well. Frankly, I was pretty happy when I got 10 upvotes.. I’ll try my best to respond to each and every one of your comments, but if I miss you, I apologize 🙂
This guy is very humble indeed. You know you will get so many blessings if you stay humble and do what you do.
There is one comment that I would like to highlights and it came from Jordanis. He said:
“The lesson here, folks, is make some friends.”
That’s true. You play an online game and just make an enemy out of every person you see won’t do you any good. Be humble and friendly always. Who knows, one of those people you bump to might be the closest one you will ever be. Which Kepgnar got right:
“Indeed, “playing TF2” didn’t get you the job, “knowing someone who worked there” got you the job. “playing TF2” helped you develop and demonstrate the skills to back up your referral.
Which seems to be the best way to get in somewhere, almost always.”
So yeah, whether it be giving away TF2 Items or just being friendly, the lesson is be good to everyone you meet and stay that way.
