    Why anyone would want to permanently delete an item is beyond me. Why they would even add the feature is further beyond me.

    Thankfully I can now delete my stats when all of the updates are released so I can reset all of my wonky records due to achievement farming.

    ...
    Permanently delete items that can never be re-earned?
    That's kind of... lame... or something...
    I have no idea what to think.

    TF2 the MMO? I believe they might actually be going w/ a randomized item-drop. So you can probly pick up similar weapons w/ different stats. Also, wtf is w/ the the head-slot? Are we getting hats as well? And as many people have mentioned, this is a 4/20 update. So the guys at Valve might be flying a little bit.
    Edit 1: I really don't know what to make of this;

    Edit 2: 'Reset Stats' will also reset your play time, for some reason. User be warned.

    Yeah, Backpack needs a big, red, "THIS IS PERMANENT" warning. Other than that, I'm happy with the stat reset option, and the hint of an alternate cloak.

    This worries me. The FPSRPG conspiracy is becoming more and more prevalent.

    As someone said on the Steam forums, there is indeed such a thing as too much content.

    Maybe it's only for the new gamemode?

    In which case, I would be fine with it.

    New weapons, different slots, different level weapons, Valve's warning of huge update for all classes.

    Definitely FPSMMORPG!

    It's a leap of faith. If you have the cajones to delete all your items you get the spy unlocks!

    I have a feeling it's simply going to be custom clothing to help players customize their favorite classes. Hey, they have to "compete" with Battlefield: Heroes somehow...apparently...

    I'm not judging till I see what's up.

    Someone has to go to Valves office and repeatedly beat the employees in the face if they don't tell us what they're up too :p

    TFTrue 3 anyone?

    I don't know. Compared to TFC, TF2 is infinetley more approachable, if only because of it's simplicity.

    Sometimes complex works (IE: Fallout, F-Zero). Other times, it doesn;t (Mario Bros, Contra)
