    You demanded a Holiday update, and by gad, you're going to get it and like it, pal. We've cooked up a fine feast of new weapons, garnished it with more headgear than you have heads, and left it simmering overnight in a new game mode. What are you waiting for?! Get over to the Update Page and chow down!

    PREDICT HOW MUCH $ HEYO WILL GET IN TWO WEEKS.


    also "Added ability for players to donate money directly to the creators of their favorite community maps." which is the same thing

    Nice to see them nick the Tip Jar concept from Kongregate in relation to maps. Also, stamps that come with HATS. Curious about the Medieval Mode. Doubt it's truly melee only, considering the Medic is brandishing a crossbow and the Sniper is brandishing a Huntsman.

    Full changelog:
    So that's new weapons for the Medic, Heavy and Soldier, I would guess. Plus, even more HATS. Curious about that testing map for item makers.

    Joy! I get to build up another complete item collection! :O

    I'm anxious to know what the holiday crates contain... I've had one for a week, but want to know if it'll be worth it to open it before I spend any real money on a key.

    So is this really a surprise that Robin came into work drunk? I always assumed that this was the reasoning behind the Bonk nerf.

    The next contest should be based on this medieval melee-only gamemode

    No no no no no no no no no no!
    This game mode is the definition of a fucking gimmick. Please TF2Maps.net admins I beg of you do not ever use this as the backdrop for a contest.

    EDIT: Ok Okrag said that the next contest will not be using this mode.

    \o/

    Opened my winter crate, got a hairpiece-thing for the Heavy ... cool I guess? It's a hat, which is good, but it's weird-lookin'. Reminds me of Hitler's hairstyle somehow, and that I don't like :(

    Liking the new items, though the medieval stuff is iffy for me.

    No it wouldn't. Nobody wants to play a melee only map.

    BTW, sounds like SourceMod or MetaMod went asplodey with this update.

    Not really surprising, but there's that if the server died.

    Degroot Keep is sexy with new theme. Game mode doesn't seem promising, though.

    Also, some of the new weapons are sexy as fuck.

    melee always was buggy in tf2 due to clipping trough teamplayers and them taking your hits instead of the enemy. So this will be some gimmick mode that will die out soon.

    I like everything except the crossbow. It's a great idea, but the smoothing groups make it look like ... "glossy".

    Shudders.

    good $-maker for valve. festive keys + new hats being worth a shitload. wonder how much they are making of the mapper stamps as well.

    not to mention unusuals dropping out of the new crates at insane rates. seen people trading max's heads for just keys/crates combos.

    Degroot Castle is very fun to play and a bit of a fresh breath of air (also because De Groot is my last name :p), and as long as it stays with one or two maps for this mode I'm fine with it. It IS gimmicky though, and Valve already pretty much exhausted it.
