    Because God forbid Heavies stop referring to their chocolate bar as "bologna."

    "Missing"? So, those classes have always had cart lines like the Scout, Heavy, and Sniper have but they just forgot to put them in the game for literally years, and only now did anyone realize it? That's hilarious. Valve's unique organizational structure at work, ladies and gents.

    Personally, those lines always annoyed me. What we could really use would be lines for the "Help!" command when standing by the cart, so that they're not stuck using the control point ones.

    I wonder if it was more of a "We just finally got around to getting the voice actors to do them"

    I guess you missed the kerfuffle a few months ago (maybe closer to a year ago now) when Valve realized they had the wrong version of cp_badlands in the game, and put in a change they thought they had implemented years ago (the clipping on the window bars in the house between the middle cap point and the forward resupply). Needless to say, the competitive community was not thrilled and sent them some suggestive emails intermingled with death threats and the change was reversed. In fact, they took the window bars out completely.

    That's a bit different from missing lines that would play constantly in every payload map. Do they just not have any way of playing the same version of the game that's out in the wild? You'd think someone would check every now and then.
