    I've wondered about the muzzleflash myself, I loved the old one. This doesn't satisfy me though... if it's asked about enough for it to go into this "FAQ" blogpost, clearly people like it, and they need to return it as a default-off option.

    a fix isnt a buff. Its made me a little happier since I've started trying out heavy again these last few days.
    And ths scout pack is at least a week away... as I suspected. These things always seem to be "more than a week away" even when they're set for tomorrow!

    I am NOT looking forward to the Scout update. That is unless they give us some kind of awesome new map or a new Meet The Team video.

    I´m not that excited about the scout update, but hey, we´ll see, maybe the new weapons get me to play him more. I hate not being able to help against sentries on goldrush or badwater and having to lay back until the big guys clear the area. he´s great on well-ish map though
    the new map is the thing i´m most happy about, one thing more youme can analyze :D

    Have they ever talked about releasing a new map with the new update, though? Of course I'm hoping they do, and it's entirely realistic, bit I haven't heard a word about it. :/

    I bet they'll have an update site out on Monday, à la the Heavy update, and then slowly reveal stuff and release the update next Friday.

    Theres that Escapist interview. No, they didn't say "for the scout update" but I guess we'll get one :)

    They won't release on Friday, a server admin pointed out that traffic is at its highest at the weekend (inc. friday), meaning the updtae would take longer to download and also stress out the steam servers.

    I highly suspect that we'll get several new maps with the update(they've mentioned at least one new payload map as well as a new gamemode, and then there is the new custom maps they've promised for every update), as well as a meet the... video. Its just been so long since any real new content they can't have nothing but scout stuff for us...

    They did actually promise new community maps and (I think) new maps from them to "keep everyone happy" with each update so I'm sure it wont be all that bad.

    So, who knows what community map it'll be? Because this is the mapping community, someone must know something :)

    I'm pretty sure part of the agreement is not to leak any information if you are the author of the community map.

    Look at fishbus, for the longest time cp_steel remained 'unfinished' and he had to keep quiet about it. Probably why he used the excuse "Bored of steel. Went to make Freight."

    I may be getting emails from one of the valve mappers on a semi-regular basis but he hasn't divulged any information on upcoming custom maps. I think their new maps is a far more exciting idea, since we've probably played any custom map they're likely to pick (being a group of people interested in custom content an alll) and we've not yet played their one.
