Next Update Revealed!

Like a month ago!

There are more details on the blog. I love that I can put this game down for a month, come back, and fall right in love with it again. A Shamwow commercial actually inspired me to reinstall.

That looks pretty brutal. I love the tag line as well, "You will shoot them and they will stick to the wall and they will die".

Between the piss jars and porno shots of the Scout's mom, I think it's Valve who's shown me who's boss.

They posted the rationale behind the random drops. The idea is to get rid of achievement servers and grinding (just play the damn game.) The more time you put in, the more loot you get. Eventually they hope to implement a system where you can work toward specific items, but for now it's random. You can also get duplicates because they're going to implement a trade system at some point.

I didn't like it at first, but I've already got the ability to throw my homemade lemonade at people and at the end of the day, that's all I really wanted. :twisted:

It's funny to me that they have to go through the same growing pains Guild Wars did with PvP and unlocks. They misunderstand that people think unlocking weapons in some way is bad, when in general, people think unlocking weapons is bad. They want new toys and new achievements, but they want to try their toys out and not have them tied to progression.

Ya but the main problem with that is that now they have modded servers that make it so you can go AFK and have the game think you are not away with things like taking damage over time as you spawn. So now when people don't plan on playing TF2 or just going AFK they go into these servers and unlock all of the weapons, so they actually made it significantly easier to unlock things.

Well, obviously they're never going to be able to fix the cheating for unlockables, but I guess the point is that any idiot can get stuff and you don't have to play one class to get it. There should be less compulsion to cheat for them now.
