No, it's ruining my class that creates my fun within TF2, icon_smile.gif


Fixed that up for ya there.

Okay j/k, but in all seriousness, there are unlocks, you don't HAVE to use it. And if they suck so bad, all the easier to kill the ones using them right?

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

I'm going to try to get a password on the server as soon as the update's finished downloading. It will most likely be, "ppupdate".

So, is the update out, or are you just saying that in advance?

There's a firewall at work that blocks most gaming sites.

I expect it to be out in ~1 hour. It is not out yet.

One thing that does remain consistent and awesome about TF2 though is their marketing. It's bloody brilliant.


Agreed. I don't like the unlocks but the information they give about it always makes me laugh.

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

I was playing on a server I usually play on a couple of days ago. I was gonna switch weapons and it said the server had lost conection to steam so the unlocks were unavaileble. The server was working fine just couldn't use the unlocks

You can see the extra effort valve puts into the games, and I love them for it. Even their update teasers are amazing.

I wonder how awesome a valve MMO would be, and ya posting that in a fps section will probably bug someone out there, get over it people like MMOs.

Also is valve in its own unique timezone >.> what could you be doing that takes so long. I understand delays but you think they update is pretty much ready once they start launching the teasers.

Sounds like the Blizzard time Zone, we all know that 11AM PST means 2 or even 3PM PST.

I don't understand why they feel the need to make us wait for the update... They should've released it at least 2-3 hours ago.

My friend runs a few different source servers, one of them being tf2. He just texted me to say that the server was downloading an update. I get off work in 20 minutes and my parents bought me a sub from Penn station for dinner. I'm pretty excited now.

I installed the update, appears it did not feel like giving me the included maps, took me 10 trys to find a server willing to download it to me.

Oh well once I get in I will be happy...

...sad till then

I'll post an announcement the moment the server gets updated; this final stretch is going obscenely slow. It's at 97.65 percent for the last few minutes...

EDIT: Yeah, by the time I got the server up, every server had updated, haha. I removed the password.

29 minutes left, and my clan server is actually populated for once. ETA is actually going up.


The aforementioned sandwich was good though icon_smile.gif

Some people on the Steam forums are suggesting that the weapons are spread by killing someone who has them (not stealing, but replicating). If this is true, then I'm assuming Valve gave themselves the weapons, and begun spreading it... might take a while to get them, that way. Nobody to confirm whether this is true or not. icon_confused.gif
