    omgogmogmgomg I JUST found this by accident when diddling about on the TF2 steam forums - I hit my bookmark to go back to the main page and it was all NEW BLOG POST MOTHERFUCKER and I was all HOLY SHIT.

    TF2 is hitting a Spore level of community driven awesomeness except with quality control. OH MY GOD.

    What happens if we can Shoop, have good ideas, but can't model?

    Why the unnecessary nerf to the Direct Hit though? :/


    And... Augh... Fuck character customization... Worst idea to ever hit TF2... It's a fucking FIRST person shooter, you can't even see your own character, it's just pointless clutter on other people's screens...

    I'll welcome the whole cluttered mess once they give us a command to disable customizations. Then it'll be cool, cause people who wanna see them can, and people who don't, don't have to.

    Youme is going to die when he sees this.

    I think it's because you could crit swimming people??? But i agree, the point of the mini crit was to promote shooting people in the air, regardless of whether they are flying due to explosive inertia or not.

    Hopefully this is the first step towards getting custom maps distributed this way, too.

    Did you read all of it? Weapons too. That ain't just clutter by a long shot.

    Loving the ubersaw taunt kill, can't wait to try it out in an actual match (although only on non-serious ones of course). I do enjoy my taunt kills :).

    For those who haven't seen it yet, I made a quick little video against a bot:

    The contribution thing is awesome, but I hope they have a very, very good filter, or we'll be getting heaps of giant updates with plaigerized stuff in them.

    ...I am so disappointed. The kill taunt sucks beyond belief. I was hoping they would bring back the giant syringe :(

    Have you been around the steam forums lately?

    The creative abortions people call "ideas" there are beyond horrid.

    Yeah, that's my concerned. Hopefully Valve will be very judicious. I don't want to chase down a Soldier wielding a ping pong paddle only to get killed by the rocket he launched from it.

    But I assume Valve will only put in stuff that meets their own quality standards. And they probably won't put in near as much stuff as people are imagining.

    This.

    Also, i'm certain the weapon customisation is in weapon effect only, not appearence. I.E. Gloves of running urgency. They are still the same weeapon but with custom affects.

    Of course this goes totally against their original concept of class and weapon recognition. You'll see a class weilding a certain weapon, try to approach the new threat from a specific angle (what you consider appropriate tactics), only for it to backfire because it did something totally unexpected.
