    *hiss* This means it'll be several months into next year, which means WAY too long in this quasi-crappy state. However, I hope it is only talking about "major" updates and they release a fix for the winbombs sooner. :(

    Understandable, but very disappointing. I was expecting at least one more major update before Christmas.

    I'm not too worried about this. They probably don't want to overshadow l4d and that's understandable and with the upcoming release of l4d and Fallout 3 I am not going to have much free time anyway. The longer they work on the update, the better we can expect it to be.

    /me notices the irony that they announce this and put the L4D preorder up on the same day...

    :(

    I was hoping that within a few weeks they would tell us which class would be updated next.

    It's the least they could do considering the length of time we're going to be waiting for it.

    Waiting will make it that much more sweeter. Besides, I already pre-ordered L4D. :D

    I can only hope, though doubt that it will happen, is that valve releases multiple classes for the next update.

    That would be a GREAT way to do it. It would also help reduce the "team full of Medics" problem we've seen in past updates.

    wait until next year? At least Feburary then. It wont be coming out sooner than that.

    Honestly I enjoyed the vanilla TF2 perfectly fine. All I thought I was getting was in the box. (except for bug fixes and additional tweaks). I never expected class updates and new weapons. I would still be playing it now even if it never had class updates.

    I played the XBOX360 Version for months before switching to PC and they don't even have the bugfixes yet. If you log on to any game it is riddled with people glitching into the sky, under the ground, setting up sentries in walls or sniping through walls. It's a completely different game now.

    I believe that has to do with Microsofts' policy regarding online content, mostly being that anything that you make downloadable, Microsoft gets some kind of fee, and that thats been a major disincentive for Valve to updated their game.

    Ugh. I hope there are at least some minor updates before that, or meridian is pretty screwed. :(
