    I like how they've put a countdown timer just like this site does. It makes me feel like I have such a small time.

    Payload carts are an allowed entry. Will probably do one of those so the mapping community can make use of it too.

    Fun fact: Wircea (the guy whose guide is linked in the first answer of the FAQ) is collaborating with me for the MvM contest.

    We thought it was a hilarious coincidence.

    Someone should make a weapon called Mcguffin for Demoman which does nothing different from his standard weapon but looks x10 times cooler.

    There's no way I'm going to be able to learn weapon design, modeling, and TF2 style texturing in that time so I'm just gonna throw this idea out here for free: a stickybomb launcher called the Dead Man's Switch, which removes the ability to detonate in mid-air and reduces damage per bomb but also causes every active bomb to detonate with full force if the Demoman dies instead of harmlessly disappearing. (Any that are in the air at that moment will detonate the moment they hit the ground.)

    What if the demoman gets dead to his bombs? Do they explode with full force or not?

    Since we're throwing out wild ideas;

    "The Marauders Minaudière "

    Replaces secondary with a balloonicorn 2nd grader's back-pack filled with propane tanks and it gives +50% more Primary Ammo for the pyro. This could help players using the phlog as well as any other flamethrower while also sacrificing the puff and sting strategy.

    Not sure what you mean; if he hit the detonate button and blew himself up, there aren't going to be any bombs left over.

    Cool ideas but stats are something only valve can handle, we need to know what these weapons would look like.
