    An update. With no classes.

    From Valve's Blog:

    Throughout history, men have worn hats as a way of showing how much better they are than other men. “I buy hats,” a behatted man seems to say. “I am better than you.”

    In wartime, hats were a useful way of conferring rank, and ensuring that casualties were confined to the lower classes (hence the famous command of “Don't fire till you see the tops of their heads” at the Battle of Bunker Hill by William Prescott, a general renowned for only shooting enemy combatants who were poor). During peacetime, hats have been instrumental for men to let the non-hatted know just who is wearing the hat around here.

    And that’s the entire history of hats. The history you were spoon fed at school, that is, in your government-run hat class. But here’s a little truth bomb your teachers, pastors and ombudsmen of your regional newspapers DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW: Team Fortress now has MORE hats. We hope this didn’t blow your mind out of the top of your head, since you’ll need a place put all these cool new hats.

    Arena Offblast:


    Arena Offblast is a fast-paced, high-altitude community map set in a top secret missile silo wedged into the top of a hollowed-out mountain. Open-air paths and narrow hallways converge on a central control point located just under the silo’s blast doors.

    This mountaintop arena also boasts a sheer cliff face encircling the battleground, giving you the chance to help your opponents improve their tactics. Specifically, anyone you blast over the side will get some time to think about the various flaws in their “standing next to the edge of a cliff” strategy as they plummet to an excruciating, non-respawnable death.

    Let's hope day two is:

    "Idling no longer unlocks items!

    Now when a player owns a hat, don't assume they're some dumb kid with a huge energy bill!"

    No, but if Valve keeps it up, this update will include good community maps for once.

    Oh, check out the HTML of the hidden hat page. The 'Mann' section of the text has been seperated. :O

    Aren't those hat models from the community?

    Wonder if one day they'll start charging for apparel items on TF2 characters.

    This might mean that you can take others hat? Doesn't really make sense but thats all I can get out of that.

    Trading, mixing weapons of the same kind creating a higher level one? Also breaking weapons into two?

    Says a lot about healing/disease weapons. Maybe the soldier's getting the virus the medic had in TFC?

    Request hats might be a option?
