    OMG, if I'm right, this has been the bane of my existence since the game came out. I'm so crossing my fingers right now

    what exactly does that do?

    why would they put that small delay in?

    The delay with the sniping scope means that a quick shot (scoping and shooting straight after) will no longer crit, basically means snipers are going to have to camp even more.

    As for the reason, I'd guess it was put in to stop lucky headshots from close range, or to combat aimbots.

    im an offensive sniper, and this pretty much derails my game with the fail train.

    did you think they meant 11amm our time? its 11am valve time. which means 11 days from our 11am date.

    Im downloading as we speak, lets hope they didnt ruin badlands like they did well! ;)

    Update- Honestly the only thing that really stood out at all for me is the new rock textures, and the 3d skybox. Than again, im not a big fan of CP either.

    It likes it. I vastly prefer CP to CTF and it sure is a looker. but thb the most exciting thing is a few new textures and props to use :D

    They're going to have to change the "Coming Soon" entry eventually.


    EDIT: Also, what new props? I counted all of one barrel that looked unfamiliar, plus a couple new skins for the existing oil drum.

    Phht, no... THIS is the biggest news:

    * Fixed a crash caused by alt-tabs during map load

    FINALLY I can load new maps while engaging my ADD (I actually dont have ADD, but I do get bored waiting on maps to D/L)

    "Added a small delay (200 ms) before a zoomed sniper shot can get a critical hit"


    "This change is actually live right now, it was something we missed posting in last update's release notes. There aren't any changes to the sniper in this update from what you're playing right now." - Eric Johnson, Valve
