    It's been almost a month since a new update was released. Is Valve getting ready for October, or are they just lazy...

    Are you trying to imply they haven't been lazy for the past couple years while they just add stuff the community has made? :p

    • Company wide Summer Holiday.
    • DOTA2 Release Crunch.
    • DOTA2 International Tournament
    • Super Secret Projects.
    • Large Update
    Those are, off the top of my head, all the reasons that would stop Valve from putting out an update on a six year old game in the space of a month. Stuff will happen when stuff happens, no sense rushing it.

    Wa wait, you mean you want more patches? Oh God, I remember when I logged in to play tf2 after a year break and I was like
    I'd like it more if they only release updates that make the game more stable w/o any new guns, hats, etc. But then the player count would drop and then everyone would leave tf2...
    /Rant?

    Its literally been 8 and a half months since the last update to include new unique weapons (Not counting the promo weapons). I really hope something besides hats will get released soon.

    ITT: People who don't remember the 3-6 months between (non-hotfix) updates back in the days of yore.
