I think you should play the fucking update before saying anything about it.

Also there should be a server option that allows or denies the use of unlocks. That way you can play some "good ole" TF2

meh, won't matter.

if it's anything like the last Scout update (doing 25 dumb achievements) then there will be a simple crack program to just give you them.

everyone competing in CEVO used them, because the competitive players have better things to do then "Kill 5 sentrys while using a bat in mid-air during overtime"

Well I dont really have much to say: They took my favorite call in the game... And gave it the crappiest update to date. I can honestly say that I was starting to enjoy playing TF2, but after this I dont know if i'm ever going to play it again. I was really looking forward to this update and they just fucked it up.


Like I said before, not everyone is as competitive as you which I think is the main reason you aren't looking forward to the update. I'm looking forward to it icon_lol.gif

No, I constantly said it was shit and stuck by that point until I found some people to play with who made it fun (Shaun, Ineffable, Fenyx, other PP people). However for that time I only ever played the 2 classes I always found fun: The first of which was the Pyro who's update I found rather good but not really enough to keep me playing it, the other was the Sniper which brings me to my next point...

The main reason i'm not looking forward to this update is because... Well it's not a "Sniper" update. I find what Valve said about Snipers getting up close and thus catering to a need for a bow moronic, the Snipers point in games has always been to stay back and play a defensive roll, people who says this is camping or unskillful are stupid. If I want to go in and get up close i'll play a class that's meant to be doing that, which is why I enjoyed the use of the Pyro every now and then. What I want in the Sniper update is a SNIPING update: Valve could have come up with all kind's of weapons that could have catered to the class still being used for what it's meant to be used for, and instead they just palmed it off with a weapon that really isn't meant for the class. This isn't even coming from a competitive point of view because if you knew squat about me you would know that I find TF2 to be genuinely fun but not competitive, which is ok but i'd prefer updates to add fun to the classes I use instead of just handing me some piece of shit i'll never use.

God, I dont know...: An automatic TFC style rifle with a scope that cant cause headshots? A sniper rifle with a thermal detecting scope that can see through walls at certain distances that has a long charge time? Or maybe only activates it thermal sight on full charge? A sniper rifle capable of incapacitating limbs so if you get shot in the arm you cant shoot, or walk slower if you get shot in the leg? You could call it "The Trophy Maker" or some other witty shit that Valve seems to like. Any of these ideas sound a lot better to me and I come up with all of them off the top of my head right now, and the reason they sound better is because they sound like ACTUAL *SNIPER* WEAPONS. Not cop out "Oh lol he's Aussie and looks like a hunter so let's give him a bow and arrow because that would be super funny".

The rest I really have no problem with, the jar of piss is hilarious and quite useful as a defensive tool and the shield I know I personally would find great use in maining a Sniper because I know how annoying Spy's are; but there isn't a chance in hell I would ever use the Bow as my primary weapon and feel ripped off when: The Scout got a weapon that seemed like a Scout weapon, the Pyro got something that was obviously a Pyro weapon, Heavy update was a Heavy update, Medic update was a Medic update, Spy update will be a Spy update... The Sniper update is far FAR from a fucking Sniper update...

bow&arrow doesn't really seem to suit sniper that much but we'll just have to wait and see

can't really say it's gonna change much

I agree with Tree_ on the whole bow and arrow thing...i WTF'd when i first read about it, its the same as nerfing the AWP to a scopeless pea-shooter and give it that 'australian' feel...


other than that, the update is looking good.

except the bow and arrow is optional, and nobody knows quite how it'll play exactly.

I'd rather the option to use a weapon that a Sniper should be using though, and not one Valve has already said will be a close quarters use weapon.

Its 1 "bad" update out of 3, tbh thats pretty good as video games go.

Anyways all this update hype has sorta got me on the bandwagon for Tf2 again, and my second time round is changing my perspective of it.
'tis a good game.

The sapper won't be updated. That was obvious all along, considering it's not even in the equipment screen anyways. This piss-in-a-jar seems useful, although I thought it was an April fools joke. It probably was at first...

So all's left is the new knife for the spy. Cross your fingers.
