    Mann vs. Machine's been up and running for over a week now, and we've been hard at work since we launched to make the experience even better. We've upgraded our matchmaking system and given a huge boost to our server count, reducing the average wait for Mann Up Mode down to a minute or less, and Boot Camp to around two minutes. So you should be able to get in to play a lot faster, and get matched up with people a lot closer to you.

    Also, guess whose birthday it is? Did you guess Team Fortress or Valve? Well, technically sure, both are sixteen years old today. But more importantly, today is the birthday of high-wattage Hollywood megastar Steve Guttenberg, who is probably 112 years old today, if we had to guess.

    In celebration of all of these birthdays, and birthdays in general, Birthday Mode is active in the game! Happy sweet sixteen, everybody! We're not going anywhere! Long term, we mean. Short term we are going somewhere, because Team Fortress is now old enough to drive, so we're gonna go Tokyo Drift over to the cake store.

    What no, "Sweet, Sixteen new hats for everyone!"

    or "Sixteen new weapons"

    or "Birthday hat for everyone!"

    So THAT'S why there was a goddamn massive beach ball in my map. I thought VVIS did something crazy to my map.

    ... Of all things, you attributed that to VVIS?

    If the last three years have just been teenage angst, that explains a lot.

    Gah, I meant VBSP. At least I didn't say VRAD.

    Well, the cake is a lie, that's for sure. Not that they promised cake, but it still is. So sad that there's no cake. I feel the need for a cake-based hat.
    And August 24 is a great day for my country:
