    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:
    • Updated Casual Mode
      • Removed the abandonment penalty
      • Players are only required to have a single mode selected before queuing
    • Fixed a dedicated server crash caused by projectiles from the Pomson 6000 and the Righteous Bison
    • Fixed being able to damage yourself to gain Hype while using The Soda Popper
    • Changed how much metal destroyed objects drop and fixed destroyed teleporters dropping more metal than intended
    • Fixed the Bonesaw not working properly while using viewmodel minmode
    • Fixed the Spy and Engineer not being able to equip the Prinny Machete

    Read on the TF2 Blog...

    Glad to see the casual mode is being reworked- If you guys haven't seen the blog post, it is incredibly thorough and sincere and lists how the tf team will be handling their future concerning communication and matchmaking. Happy to see a quick patch!

    Personally, I'd prefer leaving the abandonment penalty in, rename Casual to something like Unranked, and then bring back the old Quick Play button. (Apparently it's functionality is still in the client?) There was something nice about having a mode where people would at least try to play out the round.

    Isn't that just comp, though? I understand that it would be nice to have a "middle ground" between comp and casual, but at some point, you can't please everyone

    Yeah I played 3 unranked matches last night and it was amazing. I absolutely hated playing on Valve pubs before to get contracts but it was an amazing experience, everyone was trying to play the game.

    I'd honestly prefer it if they didn't bring back Quickplay and instead brought back a small number of Valve pubs and made them accessible via the server browser (which desperately needs to be updated), as well as putting the server browser somewhere where it is EXTREMELY visible to new players (which I think Valve should do regardless). Imagine a big button underneath "Find a Game" that just said "Public Servers" instead of having the server browser hidden near the bottom of the play menu.

    Valve's plans for Casual don't sound bad at all (pretty good, actually). I just wish I was able to drop onto a Valve rotation server running a specific map right now instead of waiting 2 weeks for an update to allow me to do so. Valve pubs would also help generate a bigger interest in that play category while we wait for really good community servers to start showing up again.

    Yeah something like that would work fine. There are around 8000 and 9000 Valve servers, you could easily make around 1000 or 1500 old pub style.

    Wait... so is it a melee weapon or a cosmetic? I'm confused...

    So I'm pretty sure MM finds matches based on ping and if you have bad ping, like I currently do, you just get to sit their and watch as other players get matched together never actually getting to join a game. I can only play on community servers full of adds and mods or training mode, and I'm getting pretty sick of both of them...

    There's probably no better time than now to get a vanilla server community going.

    So,a friend of mine is telling you can't dominate someone if you're playing in the Casual Mode.

    New bug? Probably. I'm not surprised if it is. xd

    My casual experience was repeatedly getting killed by a hacking sniper pocketed by a quick-fix medic. Of course, with no way to kick him or to leave the match.

    By the way, has anyone been getting the bug where removing a sapper on a teleporter only removes it on one end?

    Use the (somewhat) new report feature.
