    This is turning into the Halo vs. Idler war.

    May we please stop the arguing before a huge rift appears in the TF2M forum and chat, sides are taken, and the whole world ceases to exist?

    Y'know, i'd have changed the timings of that, there'd be less RAGE if the cutoff point was the Medic update for gold, which caused a large influx of Players, due to the free weekend, and the second cutoff point would be the scout update, where free weekends and deals became the new vogue.

    Though i think the whole idea was a bit bad in the first place.

    To be honest, most of the decisions made by Valve that are supposed to have "evolved" TF2's personality have only pissed off the large majority of its fan base. Reward systems for checking the blog and getting limited edition ingame items through the announcements (or just limited edition items in the first place) have pissed more people off than they have pleased.

    First hats pissed off dedicated players (due to the random drop system and drop rate (which was later increased)), then idler/Halo's practically cut the community in half (many suggested that idlers should have got devil horns to compensate the harsh double punishment since the offence by players and punishment of the players were directly related to the lack of hats and the ramification was removal of idled hats/gear and reward to non idlers of yet another, and unique at that, hat), the drop system has frustrated more than a handfull of players regarding the non achievable weapons, even most of the weapon buffs/nerfs have had more of a negative impact than otherwise; look at how long it took them to fix the sandvich, bonk and the sandman, even the flamethrower and backburner seem to have gone from one extreme to the other; The Direct Hit and the Equaliser still need balancing... I know changes can only be made when the additional data comes in but who the hell are they getting this data from? Seriously... It's like they're playing a completely different game with whacky player testers from god knows what planet.

    People who give a shit about this really need to jump off a bridge or something.

    Chill the fuck out.

    Apparently it's a war if the first post is any indication!

    I'm not raging for any reason, just trying to prevent their success... I mean date of buying TF2... to going to their heads, and not treating everyone equally.

    It has happened to me on several occasions.

    (And, I know Okrag was kidding around.)

    Their success? Who's success? People complaining? people boasting? valve?

    No rift will form, everyone got something. If any rift was to form, a thread like this would just make it easier to do so.

    SPUF really counts as a separate entity from the "TF2 Community"

    I actually think VALVe enjoys splitting TF2 players.

    Valve is the biggest troll of them all.

    But i have to say, out of all the updates that are supposed to make players feel proud or fortunate, this one is the least offencive so far.

    I think Valve does not understand when you give something to someone but not others, the have-nots get pissed off.

    I'm mostly annoyed that I got a silver when I deserve a gold (it glitched for me) :(
    But other than that, I don't see how anyone could be angry about the medals, i mean, everyone gets on right? And there was even a thread on SPUF suggesting a Veteran's cap, so, it's just giving SPUF what it wants, right? lol
