    An update to Team Fortress 2 has been released. The update will be applied automatically when you restart Team Fortress 2. The major changes include:
    • Added Crate #90 and Crate #91 to the drop list
    • Removed Naughty Winter Crate 2014 and Nice Winter Crate 2014 from the drop list
    • Added convar sv_rcon_whitelist_address. Rcon clients failing to auth from the specified IP address will never get banned.
    • Added convar r_drawtracers_firstperson to disable the drawing of first person bullet tracer particles
    • Added "redirect" client command that can be used to send clients to a different server. Does not function for clients that came from matchmaking or certain server browser tabs.
    • Fixed an exploit related to the "connect" command allowing servers to redirect clients when they should not be able to
    • Fixed a client crash related to extreme viewmodel_fov settings
      • The viewmodel_fov convar is now clamped to valid values. Users who were using this to hide the viewmodel and tracers should use r_drawtracers_firstperson 0 and r_drawviewmodel 0 to achieve the same effect.
    • Fixed missing Killstreak sheen effects for the Iron Bomber
    • Fixed the Explosive Headshot upgrade in Mann vs. Machine not applying to The Classic

    I assume if you play the game in ukranian, you didn't get drops. Maybe a regionlock thingy?

    Damnit man. I've gone down the rabbit hole and read the entirety of r/bisonmasterrace now. I've always been of the opinion that the Pomson should just be an engie version of the Bison, like the Scattergun to the Shotgun, but that is a matter for another thread.

    This is definitely the biggest thing in the update, if it means what I think it means. Brass Beast and Natascha gain much more usability now you don't have to commit to battles once spun up, and comp heavies will welcome being able to play smarter and actually make those split second "re-engage" decisions. Thinking heavies -> Better Game.
