    Uhm, damage ramp up. Does this mean people using the explode stickies in mid air strategy will stop doing that?

    just go to and look at how mad all the demo mains are. Detonating stickies as soon as possible was the only thing that made demos viable in comp.

    This is really only going to affect Wrangler users, right?

    Also, isn't the c_model system the one used for non-stock weapons? Does that mean they got rid of the v_model + w_model system altogether? Meaning the viewmodels now all look like shit just like the unlockables' do?
