    Oh dear, that nobuild thing sounds nasty. Anyone have any idea what that was about?

    Pants? Now I feel like we're just playing dress-up.

    "Please do not employ as primary source of pants" is probably the best sentence I've heard so far all year.

    Oh they finally fixed the cheap Spy-check inspection bug. About time.

    And the overheal bug? Hmm. The kunai just got a tad bit better.

    I approve.

    Of course now that the Tooth Kickers can be equipped by the Engineer, the Engineer gets a better thing to wear in that region. Of course.

    Hmm. This update seems to have broken spectate flyaround. It only works for the first ten seconds or so and then I get locked into my current position.

    I've noticed that too. Thought it was my map. Changing to a team then back to spectate seems to fix it (at least for 10 seconds, I quit pretty soon after).

    Edit: Yeah, I think that fixes it!
