    I'm not going to mention the absense of localization files.

    Some good stuff here though, that sapper bugfix is good.

    Clearly it's because they secretly updated them all to Source 2.

    Or because something glitched with your computer because it didn't happen to me.

    All these Workshop updates reminded me of a change I'd like to see: When your server changes from a Workshop map, it should pop up a message asking if you'd like to subscribe to it, and if you click Yes, it automatically gets removed from your /downloads/maps folder to save space. Granted, this would entail fixing the very-long-standing bug where the UI completely seizes up during the map switching process...

    Damn, did that also fix the scorch shot bouncing giant bots around?

    Nope, scorch shot makes pyro the most powerful class in mvm, being able to shove enemies back with the power of unlimited heavy rage on an smg and still having a slot for phlog to destroy tanks or backburner to kill bosses.
