    havn't fixed the rapid weapon switching for the taunts yet i see :p Not that there's anything wrong with watching the HW Guy spin that 150kg minigun on his finger.

    That one was beginning to annoy me, quite often I'd go 'whoa wtf theres a blue behind me' turn around and see its the heavy I'm kritzkrieging......

    I see they've still not fixed the problem of being able to heal someone whilst you are taunting as medic.....

    Did they change Gold Rush, because I was on the Ville last night (actually morning :huh:) and the map looked different.

    The back building's entrance on "A" was walled off and the upstairs looked different, is that what they mean by "exploits"?

    I noticed this on some random french server too. It wasn't my regular server but it was closed off all the same. I'm not quite sure how a doorway could be exploited though? I suppose simply using it is exploiting the fact that it is there? In which case they should remove all doorways? :p

    I was slightly confused because someone had a sprey paint that said "owned!" in the tf2 style that actually looked like a sign, they had spreyed it where the door was and i actually thought VALVe had put that as an overley there, or maybe atleast the server. It made me chuckle.. Of course it disappeared later and i realised it was a sprey paint but it was the principle all the same.

    Valve ninja'd in some changes to Goldrush with this update. I still rarely see the 3rd stage of that map, even with the changes. I think I may have played the third stage 6 or 8 times, compared to the 50~70 rounds I've played in 1 and 2 since the map was released. The map still needs a bit of reworking IMO.

    I've seen the explosion twice total now, I've missed it about 6 times (fell into it or was on a death screenshot or somewhere else in the map..) and I've got to round 2 and not seen round 3 far far far too many times, round 1 is well balanced but round 2 is still too good for the defenders.

    Yay, awesome they fixed the tracer problem. It seemed like everytime a red engineer was firing his shotgun at me, the tracers were blue.
