    Valve finally added map stamps and filters for the Gun Mettle maps, I'm guessing that means they officially bought the maps. That's great news.

    We still haven't gotten a response from Valve saying "Yes, they are staying in game indefinitely" or "we're going to do XYZ" with them

    But this helps.

    Yeah it's strange that they haven't told you yet but I agree getting stamps and filters added is a very good sign.

    Wait, you can click on the scoreboard? When did they add that? Why did they add that to something you have to hold down a key to even get into?

    Considering I've never, ever known the Spectate tab to work in this game, "enabled" might be a better verb in this situation.

    They added this command probably a month ago to enable clicking onto the scoreboard. I find it to be an easy way to mute players.

    Valve doesn't really make major changes to weapons (aside from fixes glitches) during normal updates, they typically only do it during major updates. My guess the reason they do it that way is because more people read the patch notes for major updates then regular updates, so more people will be aware of the changes. Even for people who don't read the patch notes most people know that some changes are going to happen around major updates, so it's not surprising to people when a weapon has changed after a major update.

    Well at least Powerhouse is in the standard CP map rotation now which it wasn't before. Maybe the 3 others will be too in a few weeks?

    I just really hope they would do it more. I fel they would have more players if they updated more attentively. I almost quit the game last year because of the Gunslinger and the Loch n Load, and I know a few people who have quit entirely because of it.
    And I feel as soon as a good player gets a hold of these weapons they become retarded strong. I remember vsing a very good Demoman (Paulsen) who exclusively used the loch, and there was nothing you could do. Now it's the air strike. Give that to a good soldier on the right map and its game ruining. Weapons that count things that you should be doing without a significant downside shouldn't be in the game. The Diamondback for instance is a weapon that is just straight up bad design. It's like if the Scout got a reward for running.. oh wait that was in the game and it was terrible.

    Well I wouldn't be surprised if they do include weapon changes with future campaigns and we'll probably see some campaigns during times we don't see a lot of big TF2 updates, like the first half of the year that's usually a pretty dead time for big TF2 updates until the summer update.
