    At the end of the day, the Pyromania update is a celebration—not just of Team Fortress, but more importantly of you, the TF community, and even more importantly than that, of us, the TF blog post writers, and how great yesterday's blog post was. That Men Without Hats material was a career high. In fact, we decided to never touch this blog again in the hope that it might be preserved in a perfect state for future generations.

    Oh god. MORE items. I think VALVe's great plan is to make people buy backpack expanders, once everyone runs out of space.

    Oh come on, all these urban combat themed weapons and no urban themed map to go with it? I'm ashamed, Valve.

    Heh. Wonder if that's hinting at they're actually working on a revamped version of 2fort as well.

    They are hinting at ctf_teufort, the medieval version that every scrub mapper wants to make.

    I'm surprised I havn't seen anyone do that yet.

    Take degroot, mirror it so each team has a keep, and then spawn intels (or maybe banners) in order at A, B, and then finally C.

    The new weapons look fun to play with. I mean, fuck balance, but I want to try them out.

    Where did that name originate from anyway?

    The Engie Update had a map of "Badlands", with various points of interest ("Badwater Basin", "Dustbowl", "Thunder Mountain", etc.) marked out on it, and one of them was "Teufort".

    an urban warfare map would be really cool (although it would probably require a lot of custom content as well, and i'm not sure how much it would fit the tf2 "theme")

    i kind of want to do something like that eventually

    Little underwhelmed. I wonder what the new maps going to be, if there is one.

    Just realized Scorch Shot could shoot a grenade projectile, that would make it much more decent

    It definitely looks more like a grenade against the Scout's face. I was wondering why it was so large.

    Hey guys remember back when they spent 6-12 months designing weapons for the game and only had three or four?

    Remember how the weapons were (for the most part) not utter shit?
