    From here

    Its good that they've accepted the facestabs, autobalancing and nade issues as rocky ground...
    But on the other hand its good that they're now back to work on TF2, any feedback emails would do well to be sent now.

    Can't wait for backstabs to be fixed, even if it means delaying the next class update, fix the bloody fail backstabs!

    I'm glad they recognize autobalancing as a problem, or at least its current implementation. I really couldn't say what would make me ragequit faster: the obvious bug of repeated face stabs, or getting autoswitched right after taking out multiple sentry emplacements.

    dont feel to bad, as soon as I read my RSS feed that the page had been updated and saw that the title was "Gentlemen", I almost wet myself from joy thinking spies were next.

    Or just as keanely being the only infallible sentry defence for your team, holding back the onslaught for 4 and a half minutes minutes just to be switched at the last moment and steam roll the rest of the stages in 3 minutes thinking "why on earth was I switched".

    Or in time to have your team reap the rewards of your bulwark defence and massacre you after your last minute switch as your new team suicide runs for 30 seconds; to no avail. Which is a pretty sour experience that happens all too frequently as an engineer player.

    The engineer is somewhat of a thin red line and when it comes to auto balancing are proberly best left alone. The amount of times i've seen an auto balance shift an engineer only to hand the game over to the other team.

    Or there's always the "It's 2 to 0 and I capped the intel both times myself" autobalance.

    facestabs are nice when playing with the spy , but they can be bad when playing with anything else except spy

    Not really. Facestabs are currently the only backstabs you can pull off in a real game... if they fixed backstab detection so it is possible to backstab and facestab, spies would be fun. :p

    Same could be said about the backburner. I've had far too many issues with it not criting when I'm behind someone that, without the extra health, its not at all worth using.

    So it's confirmed.

    The fabled Facestab DOES exist!
