Like it's done with Team Fortress 2, Valve recently reached out to members of the Polycount forums to see who could make the best gear for its DOTA 2 game.

The winners were announced over the course of last week, with the very best not only set to appear in the game's next update, but as is Steam Workshop policy the creators will all be getting a cut of paid download sales.

The overall winner was Danidem and Hunter's "Rider of the Storm" mount for Disruptor, but I'm quite partial to Sniper's chappish "Tally Ho" set as well.

Hey hey! Good news for valve! They just got community respect AND free labor!

If only more people realized Valve is just as greedy as EA or Activision.

The only difference is the former is like the Mooch who steals from the Halloween costume party's candy bowl whereas the latter are like the big hairy Italian guys shaking you down for protection money.
